have you seen the little treasures that are handmade by a merry mishap? i've had my eye on this jewelry collection for some time now. i love all the geometric shapes, and the black and gold color combination instantly won my heart.
i must say, when it comes to online purchases i always hem and haw because i'm a very tactile person - i need to feel the quality of an item and hold it up to myself to see if the piece really suits me. however, after reading this post by a well nurtured life - which encouraged women to spoil themselves a little with jewelry - i felt inspired and pulled the trigger.
i purchased the black and gold earrings above and, can i just tell you, i'm so happy with my purchase. the quality is very good and there is a beautiful handmade feel to them which i love. in fact, every single piece in the collection is reasonably priced (which aided in my ability to finally pull the trigger). i mean, for the amount of happiness the jewelry delivers i would even call it a bargain. since receiving my earrings in the mail, i have wish listed a few more pieces. i'm thinking that little ring will be mine soon.
if you're so inclined, check out the entire collection here. oh, and to get a sense of the artisan behind the jewelry, check out a merry mishap, the blog. it's all good stuff people.
