In tough economic times, fashion forward individuals don’t want to give up style just to pay the bills. Thank goodness there are crafty people who sell hip jewelry to those who want to have the satisfaction of looking great and still having electricity and food on the table. Ayiana Jewelry, an Etsy shop recently highlighted in the San Francisco Recycling Examiner, is just the place for trend-setting divas to pick up one-of-a-kind jewelry without breaking the bank.
After writing the piece in which this shop was included, the Examiner looked through the entire shop and realized she could get some Christmas gifts out of the way without spending a bundle; shop owner Bonnie is currently holding a Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale. It was a tough decision, but the following choices were made.
Sunflower Lovelies/yellow and white dangle earrings for $9 (this was the free item chosen for the Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale). For someone who adores sunflowers, this is the perfect set of earrings. The bright and cheery yellow will add pop to any outfit and are perfect for adding fall color to any outfit worn as the weather turns chilly.
Vintage locket necklace with an antique red copper chain for $14. The locket is teeny tiny, perfect for encapsulating a little photo or a lock of baby’s hair. The chain is really long and the whole thing looks great as it or other antique pendants and baubles could be added to it. It was purchased to be a gift for someone, but it might be hard to let this treasure go.
Bohemian Rhapsody earrings with purple stone chips and hammered rings for $12. These are one of the best examples of boho-chic ever seen. The patina on the gold rings which hold the amethyst colored beads is perfect. These earrings could easily be the one piece of jewelry that ties a whole outfit together.
These are just three examples of the items available at Ayiana Jewelry. Now is the perfect time to start shopping for those stocking stuffers that are needed during the holiday season. With a Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale going on, you can load up for one or more people on your list and pick up something for yourself as well. Even though the economy still hasn’t fully recovered, there is no reason to forego looking great; having stylish accessories without spending a bundle is easy to do if wise choices are made. Make a wise choice and buy your bling and baubles from Ayiana Jewelry.
