Gorjana jewelry: Affordable, adorable, and ready for spring

I was so excited to be introduced to the affordable, very wearable Gorjana jewelry by a friend whose necklace I couldn’t stop ogling. Of course the one she wore is no longer online (d’oh) but so much in the shop caught my eye, like this superstar necklace, for one. I love the asymmetry of the two star charms on the gold-plated or sterling chain, and it’s such a sweet delicate piece to consider as our clothes start getting a little lighter too. There’s tons of affordable jewelry to browse in the shop, most of it designed with on-trend layering in mind. It’s...

Wrap yourself in pretty with a stack of leather wrap bracelets.

Whether you had the Valentine’s Day you always dreamed of last week or ended the day looking forward to the annual February 15th Chocolate Sale, here’s one gift you can happily give yourself: pretty leather wrap bracelets.  I love that each one is made in a Brika collaboration between leather aficionado Mariah of Btwn Wind & Water, and metal expert T of Upper Metal Class. The end result is striking, with a simple elegance that works just as well with jeans and a tee as it does with a little black dress. And at just $25 each, consider getting a few–the...

13 advanced Rainbow Loom patterns for the truly obsessed: How to make them, and where to buy them.

I bought a Rainbow Loom kit for my daughter on a whim and never even thought about looking into advanced Rainbow Loom patterns that she might do. In fact, I figured she’d get bored with it after making a few basic single-chain bracelet patterns for herself and her friends, and of course, a few dozen of them for me. But she got hooked on our editor Liz’s collection of  awesome Rainbow Loom bracelet patterns, and she can’t put the thing down now. (Which means we’re sometimes picking bands out of our dinners, but hey, she loves it.) If you’re like...

Say Je T’aime on Valentine’s Day with a playful heart pendant

We’ve found such an abundance of cool jewelry for Valentine’s Day lately that I wanted to throw one more into the fray. Just in case you needed even more choices: a cloisonne Je T’aime heart pendant at Poketo. I shouldn’t be surprised that it was designed by Kristine Schmidt of Yellow Owl Workshop, because I love so much of her work. As for the pendant, it’s playful, it’s bold, and it’s got a kick of 22k gold gilding to keep it a little more grown up. Plus the packaging is wonderful if you take a look — all for a...

A lovely keepsake Valentine’s Day necklace for moms (and it’s affordable too, hint, hint)

I’m a sucker for personalized jewelry, especially on Valentine’s Day, but not so stoked about the expensive pricetags. But when I found these affordable heart necklaces at My Tiny Star Shining, I felt like Oprah. “You get a necklace! And you get a necklace!” which is pretty much not a joke, considering they start at just $34. Nice! So lovely for a new mom, especially with her own initial added for bonus points, or hey, any mom. Yes, that was a hint. You can order the keepsake personalized heart necklace at My Tiny Star Shining, but do it soon, so you’ll...

Lay off those tree trunks, lovers. This personalized ring holder will do just fine.

Yes, we all hope our love will be as everlasting as engraving our initials into a tree. But let’s lay off the trees and opt for a more modern approach, shall we? Check out this sweet little monogrammed ring dish from the oh-so endearing Wandersketch. Put aside the fact that I love the faux bois (that’s fake wood, folks) trend in personalized gifts, like this favorite personalized pillow cover from Cozy Blue, and Lisa Leonard’s Sweetheart necklace. A ring dish is one of those house items I have always wanted but have never secured. And I want it. Now. This...
