Lately, I’ve become kind of obsessed with the hunka hunka burning love that is rapper Rick Ross. It’s not just because he’s gorgeous ….
… or because he has one great song …
… or because he’s a former corrections officer who took his stage name from notorious crack kingpin “Freeway” Ricky Ross, who then sued his ass.
All those things are very important, but what really attracts me is his exquisite taste in jewelry.
My jewelry comes from a different sense of aesthetics, and I’ve said before that if you ask me for a bejeweled Stewie from Family Guy necklace or an eyesore nameplate necklace, I’ll turn you down. But if you ask me for a giant diamond version of your own face, I will scream, “YES!!!” A diamond face isn’t run-of-the-mill, boring bad. It’s superbad … and I can get down with that.
UPDATED TO ADD: I suddenly see a flaw in this work of art. It needs detachable black-diamond sunglasses so that the shades on the necklace can always match the shades on Rick’s face. Am I right or am I right?
this was totally not what I was expecting when I clicked on your tweet! I’m a Ghostface Killah girl personally, from Staten Island to Miami.

Nothing succeeds like excess!
Read the GQ article I linked to…it’s quite HIGHlarious!
You know what i can smilingly get with that too and in answer to your question yes it is animal print and you are very welcome to use it just give full credit back x
This is your destiny Wendy… to outfit all the rappers with their jewelry. Omg, can you imagine the parties you would get invited to?
Jason of Beverly Hills, move over. I am coming for your customers! Fuck this subtle beauty thing I’ve been doing, I’m over that!

Lol! When I win the lottery, commissioning a Wendy Brandes made Megan-Face blinged out necklace is first on my list. Also totally agreed on the sunglasses, you gotta find a signature look before you can get your likeness made into something.
Hehe when I first saw the photo I pondered about how he was wearing aviators while the frames on him mini me were more squared

Great post! You are never boring!!!!
Oh to Be a Muse says
haha, this made me laugh! i was watching that bet show about freeway rick ross and was shocked that rapper rick ross just stole his name–and he used to be a corrections officer, not a gangster at all. 🙂
Seriously though, detachable glasses would be awesome.
