The whimsical jewelry from DC shop Finch Metal absolutely speaks to my inner child. And I think what it’s saying (I speak a little bit of Sterling) is buy me, please.
DC artist Jill Antonishak finds inspiration in icons like paper airplanes, pinwheels, jacks and kites, turning them into adorable, lightweight pendants and earrings all at great prices. It’s like the kind of gift that you can give you your best childhood friend and stir up some happy memories.
I also love that the items are all made with a strong commitment to do-gooding; Jill uses reclaimed silver for the jewelry and recycled materials for her packaging, while donating 10% of all proceeds to various charities that help alleviate poverty. So the jewelry isn’t just nurturing your own inner child, it’s probably taking care of an actual child somewhere around the world too. -Liz
