Vintage Rose Jewelry

It was awe at first sight when I happened upon Joanne Poore’s Vintage Rose on Etsy. Joanne, an English artist Penzance, England studied art and design in college and knew from a very early age she was destined to be an artist and live a life of creativity.

She has always had a love for jewelry and says, “even to this day, when I go into a bead or jewelry shop I am wide-eyed with wonder and excitement! My love of jewelry was borne from my love of playing with colors, textures and shapes in a tactile, 3-Dimensional way.”

Check out a few of Joanne’s dazzling handiwork from her shop. I was drawn in particular to the blues and greens pieces in her shop:

Cloven

On the hunt for earthy, rustic jewelry? Here are some superb pieces from New England-dwelling Morgan of the shop Cloven. Morgan, who enjoys using natural materials, says it’s “nature’s rustic and raw beauty … [that is] Cloven’s strongest and most endearing inspiration.”

Using techniques like carving stones to reveal other naturally beautiful colors and hand-hammering metals for a textured and rustic effect, these lovely necklaces, bracelets and earrings are show-stoppingly gorgeous.

Check out a few of my favorites:

Tea for Girls

Tea collection currently has some cute clothing for girls. My oldest daughter, who turned four last week is really into what she deems “girl colors” lately: violet, pink, and red. So I put together a little ensemble from Tea collection (many in the under $20 range, save for the shoes) based on “girl colors”.

Distle Funk 2

Teal and ivory clay pendant by Distle Funk 2

If you’re feeling in a funk, pop over to Distle Funk 2. It’s a shop by Maggie Montgomery, a self-professed craft-aholic hailing from Auburn, California.

Honestly, how darling are her handcrafted polymer clay beauties? Maggie uses her creative skills to give each pendant and bead a unique, distressed look — aging it to vintage perfection, if you will.
