This is the third installment of my annual favorites list, my collection of jewelry and art websites, online articles, and other interesting bits that I discovered in 2012. As I said last year, I love sharing this kind of stuff...if you have a favorite you think I might like, please email me the link (email@example.com) or leave it here as a comment.
