I haven't gone jewelry shopping in ages, so let's hurt our bank accounts together, shall we?
(Nothing here is sponsored; these are all Etsy finds I dug up on my own, uhthankyouverramuch.)
First, get ready to say "BIRCH, PLEASE," because that's the name of Fran's incredible Etsy shop. Fran uses her original illustrations on laser-cut wood to make statement necklaces like this:
Look how beautiful.
What's really blowing my mind, though, is her layered scarab beetle with iridescent acrylic wings:
Hang on, you need to see the side-angle close up:
Even the wood has iridescent paint on it! I'm not generally a bug jewelry kind of girl, but this is stunning.
Oh! Then Fran has a Koi fish using gold layered acrylic, which you could swear was real metal:
These are BIG, btw; about 4.5 inches across for the Koi. True statement necklaces!
Promise me you'll go see the rest, because I could put half of Birch, Please in here as my favorites. Prices range between $30 and $50
Next up, Dori of Rainbow Overflow makes the most adorable polymer clay charms, and most only cost between $5 and $7!
Earrings range from $10 to $18:
She also has Kawaii plushes and Studio Ghibli charms and sooo much more - it's hard to pick just a few favorites, so go see the rest!
Oh, and I should mention shipping is a little pricey ($8 to the U.S.) since Dori is in Hungary, but she combines shipping, so just buy a bunch of stuff and you'll still come out ahead. ;)
Over at The Book Swag Shop, Christine has one of the most creative Harry Potter bracelets I've ever seen:
I've seen lots of miniature book charms and necklaces, but nothing like this! I love how she's stacked them between beads, and the leather strap looks amazing:
Christine also makes these funky rings out of leather, which I'm digging:
Go browse her shop for over a hundred more book-themed pretties.
And finally, let's end with some gothic lovelies from Poppenkraal in the Netherlands:
Pen nib earrings, made from 1950s pens!
Suzanne has more "real" vintage-style rings - which are gorgeous - but I'm more of a sucker for cheap sparklies like this:
They're about $15 each, and for adjustable rings look pretty dang awesome.
Then there's this showstopper:
That's less than $18 - and her shipping is shockingly cheap, too; just $3.50 to the U.S. Go browse her shop to see everything from tiny resin skulls to vintage top hats, and lots more jewelry gems.
Hope you guys had fun shopping with me! I love finding super different styles, so there's something for everyone. What's your favorite today? And what have you found lately that I would like? Share your links in the comments!
