Though celebrity trends such as adoption, philanthropy, and edible gold are economically unfeasible for most, today's deal lets you in on a trend the paparazzi are blogging about. With today's Groupon to Mickey Lynn Designs, you get $140 worth of high quality gemstones and recycled metal jewelry for $60. Celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Christina Applegate, Katrina Bowden (30 Rock), Mark Indelicato (Ugly Betty), Hershel (and the Hanukkah Goblins), and Lisa Edelstein (House) love Mickey Lynn's playful, handcrafted designs, and style-savvy star Elisabeth Hasselbeck joins fellow The Viewers Sherri Shepherd and Joy Behar in sporting the mixed metal creations.
Whether you're looking for a gift that says Darling, I'll live beyond my means for you or you're gearing up to flaunt your celebrity style on your holiday homage, Mickey Lynn has gives you the option to customize your design. Pick up the leather wrap bracelet ($20) in a variety of colors, from neutral black to bold turquoise, and choose from the equally adorable skull, bunny, or owl charms ($38). Show off your zodiac sign ($38) on a 16-inch rope chain ($38), or sport the lucky star love and faith necklace ($145), as worn by Miley Cyrus on the cover of her published autobiography.
Computer-scientist-turned-jewelry-maker Mickey Lynn perfectly balances her left and right brains to provide you inventive designs that are well-crafted and sturdy. Add holiday glam to your little black dress or invest in a piece of art you can wear everyday. Pyrite cluster earrings bring a delicate and earthy sophistication to jeans or dresses with hammered blackened gold discs, pyrite crystal quartz, and smoky quartz ($139). Mesmerize the holiday hoards with a waterfall of chains when you wear the mixed metal necklace on the cocktail party rounds ($122).
Order at Mickey Lynn's online store, or check out her chic shop for one-of-a-kind in-store finds and consultations on custom orders. Though you can't use your Groupon toward shipping, standard ground is a breezy $8.50.

With a little Groupon action, Mickey Lynn’s breathtaking baubles practically become a steal, which is all the more reason not to go through with the jewel heist you’ve been planning for tomorrow night’s celebrity-packed penthouse gala. But if you truly cannot be talked out of your lifestyle of brazen high-society gem thievery, then we can at least give you some helpful tips on getting away clean:
Bring a bag. It needn’t be a burlap sack, ladies, but trying to pack a cache of diamonds into a small clutch or sunglasses case can turn months of preparation into a disappointing fiasco. Fellows, you’re not exempt either. If your tuxedo lacks pockets and your leather briefcase is already full of stacks of Euros for the helicopter pilot, what do you plan to do? Carry the legendary Hopefield Green Star-Sapphire out under your arm like a baby pumpkin? If you’re that worried about fellow burglars commenting snidely on your “man purse,” go traditional: bring a bag with a dollar sign on it.
Don’t hurt anybody. Everyone loves a charming thief, as demonstrated by Robin Hood and John Stamos, but accidentally get someone’s hair caught in your grappling hook and suddenly you’re the bad guy. Stealing from the extremely wealthy isn’t actually a crime in most states, but tearing off a chunk of their coiffure will land you in a civil suit, minimum. Maintain an invisible bubble around yourself to prevent contact with your targets, and instead of violence, try getting your points across with empty, but extremely specific threats of utterly barbaric violence, lots of erratic gesturing, and what the professionals call “crazy eyes.”
Don’t actually steal anything. Like catching a trout and throwing it back to live out its life in aquatic nobility, sometimes the best heists are just a night out with good food, good friends, and a good amount of scurrying around a heating duct in formal dress just for the heck of it.
