Heaven knows Savvy has more than enough jewelry. But girls like girlie things. So how can she resist when they beckon from a store as pretty as a jewel box? And when they’re from a new line unlike any she’s ever seen? Jewelry stalwart Bijoux in Green Spring Station is the only Baltimore store carrying the crushed-gemstone creations of New York-based designer David Urso. The sensuous curved earrings of crushed black tourmaline, in a 4-inch twisted teardrop shape, had Savvy at hello. There are the ancient-looking, almost Byzantine, crushed ruby and red coral discs, not to mention the one-of-a-kind silver pyrite necklace with moonstone, amethyst, aquamarine and hematite, fit for an Amazon queen. Bijoux also carries the work of local designers, such as colorful diachroic glass by Patty Minkowski and Indian-inspired baubles by Suchi Krishnaswamy. Owner Renee Wilson doesn’t turn up her nose at costume jewelry either, with vintage stunners by Coro, Weiss, Nettie Rosenstein and Miriam Haskell, and modern designs by La Parisienne. 10749 Falls Road, 410-823-5545,
