gorgeous jewelry by Gamma Folk

Guys… Gamma Folk. I mean, just look at this gorgeous jewelry. I’ve had jewelry crushes before, but this takes the cake. Oh, and how about this styling? Gamma Folk is the whole damn package.

gorgeous jewelry by Gamma Folk gorgeous jewelry by Gamma Folk gorgeous jewelry by Gamma FolkJewelry and accessories designer Lily Piyathaisere founded Gamma Folk in 2012 with a vision to, “combine traditional techniques including natural dyeing, weaving, braiding and ceramics with thoughtful, statement jewelry.” Each piece is totally one-of-a-kind and made by hand in Lily’s Brooklyn studio. What I love most about these pieces is how modern they feel, while also embodying elements of folk craft and bohemia. Plus, they are statement pieces without being an oversized piece of costume jewelry — a bit plus in my book.

gorgeous jewelry alert : the beautiful, modern Linea collection by Alexis Russell

One of my unspoken, personal goals for the year is to finally embrace wearing jewelry. I’m usually an extremely hands-on person, so anything that jingles, moves, or gets caught on things doesn’t really work for me. But more and more, I’ve felt a compulsion to try again. The new Linea collection from Alexis Russell is not exactly hurting that cause, either. Made of clean lines and delicate ice diamonds, this collection is definitely up my alley. The pieces feel fancy and special to an accessory-novice like me, but they are also totally wearable for every day wearing.

When it comes to accessorizing, I’m all about rings. I love ‘em in all varieties: stacked, singular statements, and vintage. So you can imagine my excitement upon finding Minicyn jewelry over on Etsy. Hailing from Paris, Cynthia creates handmade eco-friendly silver and gold pieces with the perfect amount of refined detail. Some of her pieces are boldly modern, yet still delicate, while others take design cues from the Victorian era for the slightest bit of embellishment (like my personal favorite, this ring). If you’re looking for a special handmade gift that is totally unique, Minicyn is for you.

FriedaSophie Jewelry

There’s no denying that crystals, geodes, and minerals (ok, Hank) are all having a moment. So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered SF-based FriedaSophie Jewelry on Etsy. Each piece of jewelry is hand-crafted using one-of-a-kind gemstones, minerals, and natural specimens. Furthermore, FriedaSophie hand selects each stone and ensures that all pieces are made using ethnical business practices. Then she combines them with 14k gold fill metals for these truly gorgeous pieces.

I’ve been really into statement jewelry lately, so when a friend intro-ed me to BOUND I nearly lost my damn mind. Made of maple and gold-plated chains, these necklaces are geometric, modern, and so perfectly casual. Actually, in a word, I feel like this jewelry from BOUND is badass. Emma, the designer behind BOUND, has a background in furniture design and sculpture and it really, really shows.

Seriously, how amazing these these pieces? I love how they pair so well with a basic tee for an updated everyday look. Or layer it over a super-patterned vintage dress to give an edgy, modern touch.

emblem jewelry

Statement jewelry is totally my jam so it’s pretty obvious why I’m sliiightly in love with Emblem jewelry, right? The line is hand-made by New York designer Jessica Marak and the materials range from semi-precious stones, raw brass, suede, wood and ceramic. In her own words, Jessica is inspired by “the raw edges of uncut stones, geometry, simplicity, naturally occurring texture, symmetry, black, white and gold…” aka everything awesome.

I don’t know about you, but it feels like I can never have enough totes. From the grocery store to the farmers market to the beach, a good tote is always handy. My current favorite is this Sailor Beach Tote that is a collaboration between Unison + Winter Session. The bag is made in Denver by Winter Session, using Unison’s custom screen printed canvas. Frankly, this bag is positively huge and, therefore, perfect. When I’m only carrying my essentials (wallet, sunglasses, extra scarf, etc), it compresses really well, but when you need to haul some serious stuff… well, this ginormous tote is awesome. It’s made of super sturdy canvas and stain resistant, making this my go-to bag for spur of the moment adventures. Plus, who doesn’t love bold sailor stripes? For all these reasons, I am really happy to share that I’m giving away a beach tote for one lucky reader!
