Indie Scoop
The best things in life are the simplest things, right? Certainly true when it comes to Etsy seller TDesign, or Tania Gnecchi. Based in Sydney, Australia, Gnecchi makes all of her simple yet elegant jewelry by hand in her studio using a variety of colored polymer clay beads. We love the classic necklaces and earrings, as well as the affordable price tag: everything is under $50!


You might recognize Joy Gryson as the designer behind high-end lines Gryson and Olivia Harris, and now she has just launched her newest brand: IIIBeCa (pronounced like the New York City neighborhood, TriBeCa). What differentiates this collection from the other two? Gryson’s chic designs for IIIBeCa all retail for under $200, so you can snag her stylish must-haves without breaking the bank. Proceeds from sales also go to three organizations close to the designer’s heart: The 9/11 Memorial, Family Focus Adoption Services (which Gryson’s mom helped found), and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital.

Austin-based Dimovi designer Amanda Dimova grew up around shoes - her parents owned a shoe company and her first job was folding shoe boxes to earn her allowance. Now she uses her inherited skills to create her own collection of comfortable yet stylish footwear. You won’t find sky-high heels in this line - it’s all about cushiony soles that mold to fit your feet. Dimovi shoes feature natural rubber soles and only ethical leather products, so you can truly feel good about wearing them! For more information on the collection, visit
Melanie Auld’s jewelry is a favorite of industry insiders and fashion editors because of her ability to create costume jewelry that is bold but also elegant.

We love finding pieces on Etsy that we know will instantly become wardrobe staples - especially because they’re usually one of a kind!
