Sometimes a girl needs some bling. Cool, handcrafted, affordable, not-so-blingy bling.

Handmade earrings from Paper WingsFace it: As a mom, getting dressed becomes less about working the latest trend and more about not flashing someone when you have to sprint after a fleeing toddler. If you’ve fallen into a jeans-and-tee kind of rut, then think about adding a really beautiful pair of handmade earrings, for an easy pick-me-up.

We love the stunning choices from Paper Wings, particularly the pair pictured here called oblong circles. Artist Jen Goff handcrafts each piece of delicate jewelry inspired by the shapes and patterns found in nature. The necklaces are equally lovely; in a season of gigantic and impractical statement necklaces, these delicate circles and rectangles are an appealing alternative.

Pair these with your Mom Uniform, or with your little black dress — Goff’s pieces are versatile and wearable, and just plain cool. -Susan
