I will always say accessories can make an outfit.  If you find the right pieces, you can take a basic outfit like chambray and white shorts and create something a little more unique.  Some of my most precious jewelry pieces are the ones I have picked up at local artisan markets while traveling and right here in Houston.

I am madly in love with this necklace.  It is a piece of lace that has been dipped in wax and then gold.  I love how it pairs perfectly with the neckline of my button down top.  It’s the perfect mix of delicate and statement which will make it perfect to wear to the office.  The bracelet only adds more compliment to this outfit.  I love jewelry with a vintage feel to it.  These Paris inspired flowers are so gorgeous, I didn’t even want to add another bracelet.  All I needed was a fun pop of color with my clutch, and this look was ready to go.

I love artisan jewelry because it is unique and different.  It often has a beautiful story behind it, and such beautiful details!  Whenever I wear these more handcrafted pieces, I always receive so many compliments.  These pieces are such a great way to easily take your outfit to that next level.

Uncommon Goods is an awesome site that brings the artists straight to you from the comfort of your computer screen.  I love that they share the stories of how the pieces are made, the stories behind their design inspiration, and a little bio on the artists.  One of my favorite sections is the personalized jewelry.  The dog mom in me totally wants one of the engraved dog portrait pendants!  Jewelry is only a small sampling of the goods they offer.  I am a big fan of giving unique and personal gifts.  Something that really describes the person or fits with their personality, and Uncommon Goods has the best selection of unique gifts!  I know it’s super early, but you definitely want to keep this site in mind come holiday season!

 Thanks for stopping by today ya’ll!
