Hello, everyone! Are you excited for today? We're hopping back to the original Weekly Wednesdays today (as in not themed), but fear not, more are in store! This week we're hitting upon jewelry and accessories (hair accessories), and I'm excited, so let's jump right in!
Item #1 is from NonaDesigns
I'm absolutely loving the colors in this bracelet!! Anything colorful is usually right up my alley, although the occasional neutral does catch my attention. This bracelet is also a dual purpose piece--another big plus in my book! It can also be a necklace. I really like when I can find a dual purpose piece because I'm not limited in how I wear it or what I can wear it with. Sometimes I might want some color at my neckline because I'm wearing a dark or plain shirt, you know? Also, don't think that just because it's dual purpose that the necklace is going to be really short--it's not. This piece is approximately 87 inches long and wraps around a 7-inch wrist about 12 times. Lots of room for a nice necklace. Curious about what kind of beads are used? I've got you covered there too--faceted jade, cherry quartz glass, coral marble, jasper, and other glass seed beads. The tassel is optional and doesn't cost extra for the one, but you can add more if you'd like.
Item #2 is from redtruckdesigns
How often do you see hair combs? That's exactly why I like this little piece. This would be great for someone who likes to put their hair up but has shorter hairs that fall loose in their face (Really, who doesn't have this problem?) With this you'll be able to see without constantly brushing at your face and look cute at the same time! I saw this piece and was instantly captured by the patina on the bird. It's distressed but still very pretty. I've dabbled in some patina work before, and it can be difficult to achieve the color you want, but the end result is always great even if there are slight differences in pieces. The comb measures 3 1/4 inches wide by 2 1/2 inches tall, so it's not overly huge or heavy on your head.
Item #3 is from ArmoredJewelry
Anyone else a fan of feathers these days? Jewelry that looks like feathers I mean. Real ones tickle too much. I love a simple, understated ring like this one. You've got an elegant feather and a thin band. It's minimalistic but still a striking piece. The maker creates this ring from sterling silver (don't have to worry about anything turning green here!) and polishes it to the perfect shine. All rings are made when ordered, so make sure you know your ring size so you can put it in at checkout.
Item#4 is from hangingbyathread1
Love the cute little bees!!! (as long as they aren't trying to sting me..haha) I've seen A LOT of bee charms as a crafter, and I'll have to say that this is by far one of the best. Some are cartoon-ish, while others are scary looking. Not these. This is a set of two bobby pins with golden, raw brass-stamped bees. These would definitely be great for those little wispy pieces of hair that are always in the way (hair up or down)! The bees themselves are 1 inch in length giving each pin a total length of 2.5 inches. Not too big and 1000 times better than the plain old bobby pins that many of us have lost!
Item#5 is from stavroula
Those of you who read my posts regularly know that I really don't like the color orange (or certain pinks), but my goodness this piece is gorgeous. I think the orange doesn't bother me because it has the green and the red spacer beads in there, but anyway...it's gorgeous! This beauty is made from textured acrylic beads and orange wooden beads and has a lobster clasp closure. I like that it's not terribly short at 18-20 inches long. Even though it has color, this piece is still simple but yet makes a statement. I could see wearing it with a number of outfits, so you definitely have versatility in this necklace.
That's all I have for you this week, but I'll have more next time. I've had to have my attention focused elsewhere (job-related), but no worries, I'll make up for it! I hope you enjoyed today's edition and tune in next week!
Until next time,
p.s. Head over to your favorite handmade site and show some artists some love!!!
