    It may have started 20 or so years ago with Sesame Street and The Muppet Show, but our obsession with monsters is still going strong, thanks to D.C. jewelry designer Rachel Pfeffer’s new Where the Wild Jewels Are collection.

    Pfeffer had been working with super-sparkly drusy stones and tiny brass triangles for a while when she noticed how much her pieces resembled those lovable beasts from every kid's fave picture book. But even better than Max’s pals, Pfeffer’s monsters are true party animals. With a playfully glam glitter finish and names like “Triceratops Sunrise” and “Birthday Party Monster,” each piece delivers its own punch of quirky personality.

    These are seriously going to be our new little pets, so don’t be surprised if you catch us cooing to the wild thing draped around our necks. And — here's where it gets awesome — to welcome Refinery29 to the neighborhood, Pfeffer is offering Refinery 29 readers 15% off until November 12. All you need to do is use the code “Refinery29DC” at checkout. So, which sparkly monster will you snag? Click through the slideshow to get acquainted with the whole gang.
