Best of Etsy: Leather Jewelry by Benu Made

Enjoying the tassel trend, but prefer your jewels a bit more avant-garde? I’m loving the leather jewelry designs of Benu Made in Prague. The owner, Pauline Hagan, has sold thousands of her designs on Etsy, and one glance at the sculptural, Matisse-like creations and it’s easy to see why. My top picks? The leaf, cloud, tassel, and abstract. Explore all of Benu Made’s striking jewelry collection here. READ POST

Best of Etsy: Beaded Earrings by Datka Jewelry

Love Oscar de la Renta jewels, but not their price tag? I found another great Etsy source for beaded and tasseled earrings that cost a fraction of the designer price. Based in Kyrgyzstan, the ladies behind Datka Jewelry create statement baubles in every color of the rainbow. Even with international shipping, they’re a total steal. I have my eye on this pair for spring. Explore all of Datka Jewelry’s designs here.

Best of Etsy: Vintage Signet Rings by M.S. Jewelers


Looking for a one-of-a-kind gift this holiday season? I’m hoping Santa brings a vintage signet ring from the New Hampshire-based Etsy shop, M.S. Jewelers. Perfect for the pinky finger, I’d feel as chic as Princess Diana sporting one of these beauties (she cooly paired hers with a Cartier trinity ring). If you can’t find the desired monogram, they also sell several unengraved options. Explore the full collection here. READ POST
