city of win

My newest obsession: jewelry and such from the 1933/34 World's Fair ("A Century of Progress!"- oh man, if I make it to 100 years old, that needs to be the theme of my birthday party in 2082). This was spurred originally by the World's Fair keychain I found antiquing over Christmas, and re-doubled by the lovely and well-accessorized Meredith's visit to Chicago this month and her excellent World's Fair ring, and the subsequent k-hole of internet searches for all manner of commemorative jewelry from the Fair.

Rings:


Bracelets:
It's hard to see here, but the links are emblazoned with the Hall of Science.


Art Deco? Yes? Full wrap-around non-repeating skyline? Yes. 
WITH ZEPPELINS FLYING OVER THE CITY? OH MY GOD YES.

And the best for last: looks like a lovely silver and blue pendant in need of a chain, right? 

But that's not all: it's a motherfucking straight razor. 


Uh huh. I most definitely need that.
