Hello, everyone! Happy Wednesday! I hope you're ready for a new edition of Weekly Wednesday. Now, I know I said I'd have more than 5 favorites for you all this week, but life got in the way and I only managed to get five. I'm even writing this a bit later than I normally would! I'll shoot for next week...hopefully :p This week-after looking back on my picks-I think I went with a chunky jewelry theme. Statement pieces are great and can really draw an outfit together.
Item #1 is from TeriLeeJewelry
I love this ring because it's got a raw stone. I think it adds a little something to the piece. The twig band is another element I'm a huge fan of. It's a very natural, simple piece that makes a stunning impression. The band is made of sterling silver, which means no green on your fingers and no allergic reactions (always a plus). You definitely could wear this with pretty much any outfit to add a little pizazz.
Item #2 is from berylblushblonde
Now, I'm not normally a big fan of spike jewelry, but I can see the potential in this one. Most of the time I feel like spike jewelry is associated with punk, emo, gothic, etc styles but this one steps out of those categories a bit and combines a bit of femininity. I guess you could say it gives one a sassy, mysterious vibe. I really like the way the spikes are hanging instead of pointing straight out like a dog collar--I think that's what really drew my attention to it. Definitely a must have for the head strong, sassy lady.
Item #3 is from AmaliaVersaci
This one is probably one of the two chunkier pieces in this edition. I don't know what it is about this necklace, but I really like it. I think it's the different shapes that do it for me...visual texture if you will. This would be excellent as a solo piece (no earrings or bracelets) not only because of its size but because of the mix of shapes and textures. You never want to have too much going on in one piece. I love that the maker has combined modern pieces with more vintage ones. It sort of ties everything together in a wonderful way. Her other stuff is great too, so definitely take a look if you're a fan of statement pieces.
Item #4 is from Cherrytreeliverpool
Here we've got a very nice, sleek statement ring. I really like the dimpled look because it adds a little detail to the ring that gives it the handmade feel. The ring is made entirely out of sterling silver that has been shaped to have outwardly curved edges for the inner ring to move. When I say inner ring , I'm referring to the piece that looks like it's more toward the left side in the picture. This piece moves! That's so neat! I'd be messing with it all day--especially when I'm thinking. I could see this being something that would help with mindfulness and meditation--multipurpose. Another aspect of this ring is that it's unisex, which isn't something you usually find in rings. Either way--male or female--this would be a great piece to add to your collection!
Item#5 is from thegemco
As the maker states in the description, this necklace will add a "bold pop" to any outfit. "Bold" in the colors and size of the beads makes for the perfect statement piece. The faceted surfaces result in a very nice visual texture and add a feminine quality to it. You could wear this one with anything--dresses, business attire, casual business attire, casual, etc. The options are endless! Ombre is also very fashionable right now, so you'd be trendy with this piece. Gorgeousness!
That's all for today, folks! I'll do my best to have more than 5 next week, so keep your fingers crossed! Now that you've seen some beautiful stuff, head over to your favorite handmade site and show some artists some love!
