I know this was a terrible experience for the victim of a rabid-fox attack, but I can’t help laughing a little at the idea of a jogger running a mile with a fox clamped onto her arm.
Speaking of foxes, here’s the latest addition to my men’s collection. I call this fox-and-grapes combo “Aesop’s Shirt Studs.”
The foxes are petrified wood, rock crystal and onyx. The grapes are tourmaline. Everything is set in 18K gold and has tested negative for rabies.

And speaking of menswear, I was just testing out my gold Memento Mori cufflinks on one of MrB’s shirt, and they looked pretty spectacular if I do say so myself!
I might have to get a French cuff shirt just so I can wear them.
UPDATED TO ADD: I assume the jogger’s fox was not like the giant fox my gorgeous friend Monika and I encountered in a Warsaw park, because it would really suck to have to run a mile with a 40-lb rabid fox clamped to your arm. Hopefully, the jogger was wearing a more petite form of rabid fox. If you’re going to run around with a rabid fox hanging from your limb, definitely go for a small fox…that’s my advice.

Oh Wendy you always force me to stifle laughter at my desk at work so people don’t think I’m totally loopy. I love your fox and grapes shirt studs and you can’t go wrong with Jimi. 😀
Love this post! I, too, think the fox/jogger story is funny. I am a terrible person. But, I would be a terrible person who is very fashionable if I had some foxes and grapes.

Oh goodness. I just read the article, and thought to myself, “how big was her damn boot that she could shove a small fox in there?”.
And then I realized they were talking about the TRUNK. Oh those Brits! Those tricksters!

Those skull cuff links are great.

Negative for rabies? How am I supposed to get them, then?

beautiful – love ’em!
Oh rabid foxes, always good for a laugh. Your shirt studs and cufflinks are EPIC, too!
oh,I like foxes,great idea! but grapes…they don’t look like grapes:( from apart they don’t remind grapes, sorry, it’s my opinion:)maybe there should be a little grape leaf near them?…
p.s.I like these skulls:)
Zuki, I assure you they look completely grape-y in person. Their photo doesn’t do them justice. Which is no fault of the photographer! Sometimes things just look a little weird because the camera is focusing on a piece in a way you’d never see it in real life. I think it’s true of nearly all jewelry — that the camera can come very close but never truly capture the beauty that the piece has in 3D.
