Fresh flowers for every outfit

It happens again and again: one dress-up lap around the living room and the creepy faux-metallic paint on your daughter’s “jewelry” is already flaking off and the molded plastic clasp has begun to warp. It’s not always easy to find dress-up accessories that don’t look (and act) like you bought them from a gumball machine. And then someone showed me the fantastic, hand-crafted, textile dress up delights offered by artisan momma Rebekah Desloge.    The Crocheted Flower Necklace is a sweet addition to the dress-up madness in your home, and would make such a great gift, as well. The leaves and...

Falling in love with geometry

As minor as my kids’ milestones might seem in the great scheme of things, I still do my fair share of celebrating them. All night in your own bed? Yes! So I decided that I too deserve to treat myself with a little reward for making it through another milestone with them. Fair, right? I’ve got just the thing, if beautiful handmade jewelry looks like your kind of grownup treat. I just love the geometric rings from Israeli-based Osnat Har Noy that are a little larger than a thin everyday band but not as bold as a cocktail ring....

Warm leatherette

My summer wardrobe uniform remains the same season after season–flowy skirt, plain tee, and chunky cuff–all of which I update with a few trendy pieces. Take a peek at what I have my eye on right now to complete the outfits! This gorgeous circle cuff by designer Mimi Jung of LA-based Brook & Lyn is an eye-catching piece that’s completely hand molded from saddle leather. I love the simple nude circle centerpiece which stands out against the black, making this super versatile for night or day as well as summer or fall, though I’m digging the stencil pair cuff as well;...

A mom ring for the chronically undainty

Anyone who knows me will tell you: I’m not dainty. And so much of the personalized jewelry for moms that I see is polished silver, beautifully engraved curlicues, glass photos, and things that, in general, I would break on contact.  But this custom ring has a tough, rustic edge that would totally work for me. And it looks hard to dent, too. That’s not to say a dainty mom wouldn’t like it, too, because there’s lots to love in this Personalized Copper and Silver Ring. Just tell Etsy seller Monkeys Always Look up to 30 letters/spaces, and they’ll hammer...

Earrings made just for your ears. But also your eyes.

As my kids (and I) get older, I’m a little pickier about the jewelry I buy. Not just because there’s less chance of them tearing it off my neck, but also because I’d like to think that everything I wear will eventually be passed down to my three girls. And that’s why I’m in love with the made-to-order earrings from Anna Bee Jewelry.  I was a fan of the beautiful personalized necklaces from Anna Bee Jewelry and now I’ve got my eye on the Malia earrings (pictured), which feature black onyx beads on vintage frames — sort of a modern take...

Secret affordable earring resource, revealed!

I’ve posted a few pictures of me lately wearing these awesome new earrings I found, and I’ve gotten so many requests for the purchasing info, I give! Uncle! I will just have to accept the fact that my secret find is no longer my secret find. I’m often skeptical of felt-based jewelry, especially when I’m ordering online and can’t see them in person. But when my Feistyelle earrings arrived, I was nothing but thrilled. These thick, substantial, laser-cut felt designs look amazing, and because they’re so lightweight, they feel amazing too. I am a proud owner of the dahlia...

Earth Day Pick – PaperStatement art and jewelry

Discovering the Paper Statement Etsy shop was like looking at your own perceived craftiness in the mirror and laughing at it. I am absolutely blown away by the things true artists can do out of paper and cardboard. The first thing that caught my eye from German artist Dorisse is this very cool paper necklace made from corrugaged paper beads. It looks great with multi-colors like this, but the simple natural beads or single-color options are pretty amazing too. [see more incredible paper jewelry and sculptures after the jump] Really impressive book sculpture. Statement bracelet from paper beads. Very...

Whether you want your own initial in gold and your kids’ in silver (pictured), or you want to get more creative and pick the metal tones based on gender, the choice is completely yours. ...
