cecilia-gonzales-bracelet-silk-chain-moxsie.jpgWhile browsing Moxsie the other day we stumbled upon these must-have bracelets from Celia Gonzalez. Handmade with dyed silk cord weaved into long natural brass chains, the bracelets also double as a perfect-for-layering necklaces!

Designer Cecilia Gonazalez is based in Miami, where she hand crafts each piece in her Coconut Grove studio. To preserver the uniqueness of her pieces, Gonzalez uses an arduous process of oxidation and patination on the metals, chains, and charms. She layers many elements together to create modern jewelry pieces with an aged look of antiquity.

We’re happy to have this up-and-coming label on our radar!

We love our statement jewelry as much as the next girl, but sometimes the price tag on really cool pieces can get a bit high. That’s why we got extremely excited when, while searching through Etsy, we found Chasing Alila’s one-of-a-kind jewelry shop. These amazing statement necklaces are mad with ribbons and sell for just $28 to $30. They even come packaged in an adorable polk-dot box!
