Last week I created an Etsy treasury of some of my favorite Emma-inspired jewelry. The inspiration for the treasury was this necklace:
It reminded me of my favorite piece of Emma's jewelry, the multi-strand purple necklace.
Leigh, the creator of this piece, left a lovely comment on the post, so I checked out her shop, Bear and the Honeybee.
I am now in love with Leigh's necklaces. Emma has great jewelry, and for me, the best pieces are the unique, often vintage, one-of-a-kinds that can't be duplicated. Sure, I can go to J.Crew or Anthro and get a pretty necklace, but isn't it so much better to wear something that was handcrafted? Something no one else has? (Not even Emma!) I think so.
Big Blue Daisy Necklace - $42
Bright Green and Yellow Daisy Necklace - $32
Fresh Daisy Necklace - $30
Soft Floral Necklace - $32
Once again, I raise a glass (or a vintage enamel brooch) to artists like Leigh who create such fun, pretty jewelry. The next time you're in the mood to add to your own jewelry box, step away from the mall shops and support your favorite Etsy artist instead.
