Etsy Holiday Guide: Jewelry

For the second day of the Etsy Holiday Guide, we will be focusing on Jewelry! Don't forget to check out Poetic and Chic, Flutterbyblue, and Sfgirlbybay as they've helped build the guide and may be posting some of their picks too!

pequitobun, chic and charming, etsy, jewelry, handmade, vintage, semiprecious stones

Pequitobun is the artist indirectly responsible for getting me hooked on etsy! She make absolutely fabulous jewelry incorporating recycled vintage elements and semiprecious stones. Each of her designs is unique and meticulously crafted! The two pictured items are my current favorites from her shop and are part of her couture line. She also has several other lines which are less expensive and the perfect place to find a gift for you sister or vintage obsessed friend.

Hoolala, chic and charming, jewelery, frippery, etsy

Hoolala is best described using the shop's own slogan "Delightful Jewellery & Frippery Made in England." I adore the little charm necklaces from this shop, especially the Alice in Wonderland series! Check out the Make Breast Cancer Extinct necklace with the pink dodo and swarovski heart, it is too perfect.

silver, jewelry, butterfly, etsy, simone walsh, marilyn monroe

Simone Walsh creates beautiful, silver sophisticated jewelry. Naturally, the Marilyn Monroe brooch is my personal favorite. If I had an unlimited holiday budget I would purchase this Butterfly pendant for my good friend flutterbyblue who loves butterflies!

made with molecules, jewelry, caffeine, etsy, jewelry, chic and charming, seretonin

The prefect place to find a gift for your slightly nerdy sister? Made with Molecules! Behold caffeine, the source of all my energy and seretonin, the source of all my happiness. Sterling silver molecular jewelry is a fabulous way to remember the molecules that get you through the day. Made with Molecules also makes a fabulous line of ethanol etched glassware.

Magdalena's Atelier, jewelry, chic and charming, etsy

Magdalena's Atelier makes exquisite wire wrapped jewelry with semiprecious stones. I've adored her work for ages, and will one day save up my pennies and splurge on the perfect piece. These show stopping jewels would be perfect for a wife or girlfriend (hint hint). Magdalena has begun selling DIY tutorials describing how to imitate her fabulous style! These tutorials combined with a few supplies would be a great gift for a crafty friend!

Images for each of these shops were lifted from their etsy store.
