I'll bet it's getting pretty easy to gauge my style likes, isn't it? Like red purses, retro and vintage, circle skirts...and jewelry that has wooden components. Yes, a lot of jewelry is natural, and just polished a bit. But there's something warm and far more organic and earthy about jewelry composed of or with wood.
These very chic wooden hoop gemstone earrings are, therefore, predictably up my alley (and, I hope, yours as well). Personally, I like the turquoise - it's so bright and such a classic - but it really looks like there's a stone for everyone. The timeless look of a dangling hoop and stone is made modern with the wood; I think the wood adds a little more fun and whimsy as well. Pair these beautiful handmade originals with jeans and a crisp shirt (talk about classics) or make a statement by matching these up with a suit or dress.
Shown here with turquoise briolettes, these earrings are available in about twenty different stones, including pink jade, onyx, amythest, carnelian, citrine, and quite a variety of quartz and jade, all suspended from what looks to be sterling silver wire. Normally $48, right now artist Rhonda has them on sale for $38 - but only until Thursday, so hurry in with your order! Unsurprisingly, these are one of her bestsellers. Rhonda's work has been featured all over the place, too (as if I'd steer you wrongly?).
These and many, many other truly beautiful necklaces, earrings, bracelets and anklets are all at Stunning Details and at very select retailers in North America and Australia. From freshwater pearls to gemstones, Rhonda's bound to have something you fall into deep like with for yourself or someone else (remember, now: Mother's Day is peeking 'round the corner), and just perusing her shop is quite the joy break. Enjoy!
