The land of Etsy is like New York or London, whatever you're into, whatever your style, tastes or passions, dig around a little and you're gonna find it! Jewelry is one of my favourite things to shop on Etsy, I've put together six of my current most loved shops including some new quirky and colourful discoveries. You won't find these treasures in regular stores, so be prepared for lots of 'Ooooh where did you buy that?' comments! Read on to find out more about the fab jewels on offer and the talented creators behind them.
Elena of French Etsy shop daimblond believes all handmade items have soul. She creates beautiful, ethereal pieces using resin, gold flakes and treasures from nature. The clear resin gives a magical floating effect to pretty gold leaf and delicate little fronds of moss. Head over to daimblond to admire Elena’s enchanting and highly original collection.
Jill Foreman creates ‘handmade jewelry for upbeat people’ and I just love her fun and playful aesthetic. This is the kind of statement jewelry that can transform your entire outfit whilst also transforming your entire mood! Stripes, tassels and confetti patterns combine beautifully with Jill’s excellent eye for colour. JillMakes is a top choice for heartfelt and quirky gifts (and yes that does include gifts to yourself).
