FHTAGN: Silver tentacle rings and earrings


The jewelry looks just as good as these pieces but their production doesn't harm any octopuses; they're made from high-quality Sterling and the rings come with three different finishes. The earrings are $20 and are through-the-ear/wrap around; the $40 rings can be easily adjusted for different-sized fingers. Both get top marks from reviewers.

Dress like Twin Peaks

The visual style and fashion of Twin Peaks has never looked so cool as it does these days, if you ask me. Paste Magazine has put together a little "style guide" to copping the fashion of each iconic character -- as the holidays are coming up, just feel free to send me everything. Except the denim vest, because ew.

I still think about this Twin Peaks-inspired fashion line from last year -- although the online storefront doesn't seem to be around anymore, the widely-circulated images are a good example of how to derive style from symbols. And here are the eloquent results of a time David Lynch worked on a fashion collection.

There are a lot of Twin Peaks-themed jewelry crafts on Etsy, but this subtle "statement ring" is my favorite.

You, of course, are still thinking about my Boing Boing essay on the Twin Peaks revival, right? Read the rest
