I will not be making anymore posts until after the holiday. I will be travelling to Arizona to spend the holiday with some of my family. I will be checking out some jewelry while I'm there for future posts. This past weekend I checked out the Brooklyn Flea Gifted show on 4th and Lafayette and saw some amazing jewelry that I am excited to post about (jewelry made from old records, leather necklaces, ruffle leather earrings, porcelain pendants, crochet cashmere with chains....). If you are in the NYC area I definitely recommend checking it out, it ends Wednesday night the 23rd at 9:00.
Everyone enjoy your holidays and I will be back up posting in the middle of next week!

Vanessa Gade's Inner Circle collection is made up of circles and chains that are designed into extraordinary pieces. The chains are woven through holes in the circles filling the emptiness of the center. The distinctive patterns that are formed in the center change the basic shape of the circle into something much more complex. These are high quality pieces that are luxurious without being showy. They are available for purchase in Vanessa Gade's Etsy shop and on her website and if you mention this blog you will receive a discount!

My wardrobe consists of clothing in black, white and grey. My style is comfort and ease and I prefer my clothing to be a simple canvas to be a nice backdrop for my jewelry and accessories. So it was no big surprise to me that when I saw the necklaces in The Wind Beneath collection in the MujiAndYou Etsy shop I was immediately drawn to them. The minimalist designers laser cut feathers from black or white acrylic and then style them into 3 different necklaces that are all easily wearable in their own ways. It's also obvious when looking at the ONE Black in the last picture as well as close up pictures in the item listings that the designers paid careful attention to the detail on the feathers. My personal favorite is the ONE White. I love how incredibly white, clean and simple it is but still very bold! It will go amazingly with any white, black or grey ensemble I wear it with!

The necklaces from spinthread are really fun!! The sewn and embroidered geometric shapes are lined and sewn with lace and can come attached to a metal chain or a cotton jersey or ribbon tie closure. The necklaces are each a piece of art and are made to order so you can customize your own color combination. There are many shapes and sizes to choose from making the possibilities endless! These necklaces are truly unique and will add individuality to any outfit you wear them with.

The entire collection of Ezza Exclusive is absolutely amazing. Every piece in the collection is "bold and fashion forward" and you will not go unnoticed when wearing one. It's no suprise Ezza has received a lot of press and has had pieces from the collection featured in the Etsy Lucky Magazine picks. Ezza uses a variety of materials including different types of beads, cabashons, sequins, lace, and glass stones. The styles she designs are incredible and there is a variety of colors making it easy to find that special piece and hard to pick just one.

The silk necklaces in Stavruola's collection are like nothing I have seen before. The design is truly innovative. The necklaces are extremely long at 32 inches but the silk cord tassel can be shortened by adjusting the silk fabric part. The silk fabric part can be adorned with studs, rhinestones or a handmade flower. I love the flowiness of the long tassels and how they're different but reminiscent of a scarf.

Kris Nations Nature Inspired Jewelry is simple and beautiful. I love the cleanness of the circle and the cutting out of the pattern on the Orchid pieces. Wearing the design such an easy way to add a touch femininity to any outfit. And the equally clean but bold Dahlia pieces bring a little more personality with them. Each piece comes in silver or gold and every theme comes in a few different styles so you can mix and match a set to your liking. Kris Nations collection also includes some wire wrapped rings as well as pieces Art Deco and Mid Century Inspired some with Owls and Hearts. The entire collection are designed with the same simplicity and femininity as the Nature Inspired collection.

I was reading my December issue of Lucky Magazine when I saw these Glass Cocktail rings from A+R Store featured. I emailed A+R Store and the co-founder Rose contacted me back right away. She told me that the designer Orfeo Quagliata is a young American living in Mexico City and that each ring is slightly different because they are hand done. Rose said that they do very well for them (I'm not surprised!) and that she we will sometimes wear 2 at a time, side by side on the same hand for "max effect." I think I'll be ordering 2.

I wear my green jade stone ring from Yuka by Guliz all the time and without fail someone always compliments me on it. The stone in the ring is very bright and rich in color and my sister has the pink jade stone ring and the stone in her ring is just as bright and rich. I love the smoothness and coolness of the stones and the diamond cut on the stones makes them glisten when the light hits. I have small fingers and hands and my ring fits me perfectly and my sister has larger fingers and hands and hers also fits her perfectly making these rings perfect for everyone.
JMGJewel Design's DEPARTURE series are just simply stunning. The DEPARTURE series is a limited collection of one of a kind stained glass tiles.

Each piece is one of a kind so once it is sold it is gone for good so be sure to orders your today before someone else does!

The ring collection in the TooSis Etsy shop is amazing! And she doesn't only have rings, her collection also includes earrings, necklaces and bracelets that are all handmade with high quality materials of sterling silver, gold and precious stones. There is a great selection of different stones: Amethyst, Mother of Pearl, Zircon, Jade, Turquoise....just to name a few. She will polish the stones smoothly or use them in their raw state. The combinations of the stones are beautiful and you can even have a ring custom made for you with a loved ones picture. I am obsessing over the Amethyst Ring in the 2nd picture. The way she paired up the different textures of the raw Amethyst and smooth Zircon stones and then complimented them with a simple silver flower makes a wonderful combination. I can't wait to add one of TooSis beautiful rings to my collection!

When it comes to rings my motto is "the bigger, the better!" So you can only imagine my delight when I found these big rings by StudioLeanne. I immediately emailed the shop to my sister who shares my love of big rings, and her repsonse was, "don't you think they might be too big?" NEVER! In my jewelry world, no ring is ever too big!

They come in a variety of shapes and colors and there is even one adorned with feathers and beads!
