Hello, everyone! Welcome back! Are you ready for a new Weekly Wednesday??? I hope so! This week, I decided to go with a Spanish Tile theme. I've had this in mind to do for a while, but I never could really find anything (side note: I'd search 5 minutes in between everything I was doing and finding nothing). Well, last week I sat down and actually browsed for this particular theme. Guess what?? There are a lot of items that fit within this theme. I knew I couldn't have picked a theme that I couldn't find anything for! I have always loved the colors of Spanish tiles--they're so vibrant, like you can feel energy emanating from them. Enjoy!
Item #1 is from TexMexFunStuff
Don't we all need one more trinket box? For something small or for certain items? I think yes! This little box is 2.5x2.5x2 inches (length x width x height). It would be perfect for something small that you want to always keep track of. The hand-tooled, tin box has 2 x 2 inch talavera tile placed on top and a mirror bottom on the inside. Very neat! If I had something like this, I'd store my engagement ring in it, so I would always know where it was---right now I store it inside the box of the box it came in...gotta do something about that soon (*adds to favorites*).
Item #2 is from Atrio
I love how absolutely gorgeous these earrings are! I actually favorited them sometime ago before I decided to do a post on Spanish tiles! The colors are so pretty and compliment (complements compliment---haha--just one of my corny jokes) each other very nicely. The blue and green really balance out the orange, but the orange adds a very nice pop of color. These tiles are a replica of ones that were seen on a buildings in a small town in Portugal called Aveiro. Unfortunately, with time, many of the buildings have been demolished or fallen because of disrepair. I love how this artist is trying to preserve some history! Portugal and Spain are options for our honeymoon, so if that's where we go, I hope I get to see some pretty tiles! So in love with these!
item #3 is from CorinaCrooks
I will have to say that I got a bit too excited when I saw this ring (think heart eyes emoji, ok?) I love the colors and the detail of the setting of the ring. The setting is made from sterling silver and the handmade tile has been inlaid in it. The ring comes in sizes 6-10 and is one I could see looking very nice on any of the fingers! (Note to mom if you read this---remember the big 30 is coming up! I could definitely use something like this ;) )
Item #4 is from ShelleyCooperJewelry
I guess I never really thought of a tile cuff, but this is definitely gorgeous! It makes a very nice statement piece. The tile is placed inside a handmade, hammered bronze frame that has enamel accents. The texture of the bracelet really sets off the smoothness of the tile. You do have a choice of one of four tiles--all of which are equally gorgeous! As for the size, the tile itself is 1.5 inches across and the cuff is an adjustable 6 inches. This piece would go with almost any outfit and definitely make it pop.
Item #5 is from luxdivine
First off, I'll have to say that there are not a large number of Spanish tile necklaces on Etsy (at least ones that really caught my eye), but this one really drew my attention moreso than the others that I saw throughout my browsing. The tile is 1.5 inches in size and the necklace portion is made in a hand-knotted, mala style. The Tiger's Eye beads really add something to the tile and also makes the tile pop at the same time. The entire piece is 36 inches in length and perfect for all you boho and layering babes! Get it before it's gone!
Item #6 is from fujigirls
I had a difficult time finding a pair of earrings since they were all made by one of the designers already mentioned in this post! Awesome job in continuity, everyone! You've caught my eye more than once! I'm not saying that these are a second choice, for the definitely are not! I looked high an low and these beauties showed up. I like the monochromatic look as well. The blue really pops with the metal that's visible. There is also a large amount of detail--the pattern on the backing and the detail of the round cap on top. They are truly gorgeous and you need them!
That's all I have for you all this week, my lovelies! I hope you have enjoyed this very colorful edition of Weekly Wednesday, and I hope to see you next week! Now, head on over to your favorite handmade site and show some artists some love!
Until next time,
