Stix + Stones

When I first saw Stix + Stones I was really struck by how incredibly simple yet brilliant they were, until I saw the price. In one hand you have a striking, customisable necklace that will most likely look with almost anything you wear, with quite a bit of technology in those little ‘stix’, and in other you have a couple of bits of metal hanging on a chord.

There are two types: the Basic Stix + Stones for USD$99 and the Full Stix + Stones for a steep USD$159. At time of writing I am still torn between should I buy it, should I not? This isn’t something that you can simply buy a cheaper version of or even buy a similar product as this product really does sit pretty far outside of the box. Also, if I did buy it, would I buy the full or just the basic? The designer inside me would kick me again and again if I didn’t buy the full but the full IS USD$159 JUST for a metal and chord necklace (that’s not taking into account the conversion or the shipping).

I think I am going to have to sleep on this one, for now.
