Made with love… or, at least, with “like”

I love all things homemade. Okay, there might be a touch of hyperbole in that statement. But when it comes down to the choice between something mass produced in some far away country and something crafted by someone who genuinely cares about creating something beautiful, the latter something is going to win hands down.

To celebrate all things handmade, here are just a few of the wonderful baubles for the bride I found while poking around Etsy:


Most of these unique pieces cost less than the earrings, bracelets, and hairpins you might find in a boutique setting, but are every bit as lovely. For more info on the artisans who crafted everything pictured above or to support a handful of folks trying to get their work noticed, just click the photos!

    Those are all lovely – but then, I just finished making all my jewelry for my own wedding 🙂 Could have been easier to go with another designer’s work LOL!

    Well now that you’ve gone and teased us I do hope you’ll show us what you made, Chloe 🙂

    I so want that pearl cuff! It’s amazing and just my style.

    Handmade is my favorite way to go, too.

    Chloe, you’ll have to share evidence of your jewelry. I want to see it!
