'Tis the season for giving! I wanted to round up some of my favorite small businesses jewelry makers for the ladies (and gentlemen) that like having a little glitz and glamour in their lives!
First up, Compassionate Paws! I've done post before about Jen's shop and I love what she has to offer. Everything is handmade and original. Each stone has different healing properties. You can purchase one made or ask her for a custom piece that's as unique as the person you're buying it for. Her tree of life pieces are my favorite favorites. Also, she donates 5% of her profits to animal rights! Here's some photos of some of my favorite pieces from her store:
Next up, Lava Essentials. Their line of minimalistic oil diffusing jewelry is really unique. You use your favorite essential oil on the lava heads on your jewelry, which is so cool. The jewelry is so pretty too. It matches everything and it's simple but it adds such flair to your outfit that it's gonna stand out on its own. Also, they use gold filled for their pieces. Gold filled is a piece of solid gold heat pressured to a piece of base metal. It's tarnish resistant and it great for people with skin allergies (hi, me!), or those with sensitive skin (hi, also me!) Here's some of my favorite pieces of theirs with photos from their website. I bought the Second Sale Crescent Necklace because I thought it was so pretty!
Lastly, Christy Robinson Designs.
I have two of her necklaces and I just love them. They've held up better than 95% of necklaces I've ever purchased. You can choose from recycled aluminum, which is what I purchased, or recycled silver. She offers necklaces, bracelets, earrings, keychains.. you name it. She's got a lot for both men and women, which makes shopping a whole heck of a lot easier! You can even get items customized. She offers a lot of different options, not just vegan related. She's got zodiac signs, feminist designs, and so much more! Christy is super nice and she'll be willing to work with you to find that perfect gift! I've even gifted one of her bracelets to a friend and they loved it too! Here's some of my favorite pieces of hers taken from her Instagram:
There you have it! These are three of my favorite companies I definitely suggest checking out, if you haven't already!
