I’m a jewelry connoisseur, a collector if you will, and I am always on the prowl for sparkly new baubles to add to my collection… after all, clothing trends can come and go, but jewelry is forever!
Today I am here on behalf of my friends at UncommonGoods
to share some of the pretties in their collection of jewelry
For more than 17 years, UncommonGoods has been featuring unique pieces, created in harmony with the environment and without harm to animals or people. Headquartered in Brooklyn, New York [where I lived for a summer… oh how I love it up there], they run all their operations out of a historic Army Terminal, where the lowest paid seasonal worker starts at 50% above the minimum wage.
Their overarching mission is to support and provide a platform for artists and designers, and more than half of what they sell is made by hand… impressive and oh so hard to find these days! And at the core of UncommonGoods is a great respect for the integrity of the creative individual and the belief that it is our responsibility to use business to impact the world in a positive way.
Second in line are these hand hammered chevron swing earrings
, made by Lucy Dalton. They are delicate, sleek, and don’t weigh a ton, which is great! Handmade in Brooklyn, these will be accompanying me on all my springtime travels to Dallas and Rosemary Beach just to name a few. Pair them with my new navy maxi
and some fun wedges
for a dressy look that’s comfy, too.
Finally, I saved the best for last and it’s this Vine Gold Dipped Lace Bracelet
which boasts old world antique romance matched with contemporary elegance… the cuff is by Tulianna and Alejandra Garces, two Colombia artisans. The entire process is completed by hand, as pieces of lace are cut and sewn, dipped in wax to seal, and then dipped in 24K gold. I’m absolutely obsessed and it’s been on my arm since the day it arrived!
Thanks to my friends at UncommonGoods for collaborating with me on this post. As always, all thoughts, opinions, and written content is that of Hello! Happiness.
