Earthtones & Artisan Jewelry

Monday, September 3, 2012

I come from a long line of artists, did you know that? My grandfather is a painter, woodworker, jewelry maker, and pretty much any other medium you can think of, I'm sure he's tried. My father is a commercial artist (which means he paints a lot of logos), he is a muralist, a sculptor and he can probably make anything I could ever imagine.. he's just ingenious. My uncles are artist and my brother is an architect... you get the gist.

So, naturally I have a soft spot for anything handmade. I love that unique one of a kind feel, especially with jewelry! I found a couple of the pieces I'm wearing today at a thrift store and a flea market. I cannot guarantee they are handmade, but I like to pretend they are.

In my next life, I want to be a jewelry maker... or in this one if I get on it soon ;) My entire look cost a whopping $34.50!

I love handmade jewelry too, it's extra special! Yay for a cute outfit that's also so affordable. My grandfather was also an artist...he was a painter.

Such a cute outfit, and I am envious of your artistic pedigree- nothing like that in my family at all :(
