aa-jg03-first-shotb.jpgNew e-commerce site is like heaven for indie jewelry lovers. The site recently launched in October and focuses solely on emerging designers. They offer a carefully edited selection of hand crafted and distinctive jewelry, all of which meets high standards in design, craftmanship, quality materials, and distinguished artistry. You won’t find anything mass-produced here! We especially love these pieces:

MELIEBIANCO_BAG_CAMEL_1.jpgThis high quality, faux leather statement bag from Melie Bianco is sure to be a hit. The trendy camel color and luxe gold-colored chain strap give a functional tote some stylish appeal. And at only $94, how can you resist?

The line consists of classic silhouettes made from 100% luxurious cashmere. These sweaters are a splurge, starting at $325, but we’d live in them all winter long! Shop the collection at


amandawhitejewelry.pngWe recently discovered Amanda White’s delicate jewelry collection, all of which is cast from real vintage lace, ribbon, satin, or string and transformed into solid sterling silver and gold. White strives to distinguish her brand by using only the highest-quality materials and incorporating romantic, bold, and sophisticated details in her unique designs. Prices range from $85 to more than $4000, depending on how intricate the piece is. For example, the Gold Delicate Vintage Lace Cuff Bracelet shown is made with 14k gold molded into bracelet form and retails for $4,500 in White’s Etsy shop. A more affordable favorite of ours is the sterling silver Forget me Knot Bow Necklace, $85. 
If you’re looking for a unique LBD for holiday parties or New Years Eve, this stylish ruffled option is one of a kind. The recycled satin body gives the dress some vintage flare, while the ruffled sweetheart top half creates a modern (and universally flattering) silhouette.
