You guys. I HAVE AN OBSESSION WITH ACCESSORIES. Okay, I just really needed to get that out into the open.
Whenever I find myself with a few free minutes I am either A- scouring Pinterest, B- scouring Etsy, or C- raiding the sale sections of my favorite stores online. I spend a lot of the time looking for the same exact thing – gold statement jewelry. I just love, love, LOVE it! And today I want to introduce you to one of my latest finds – a wonderful, little Etsy shop called Simply Lovely Handmade.
I was so excited when the owner of the shop, Sara, offered to send me a few pieces to add to my collection. Sara is just the sweetest little lady around and she has a killer sense of fashion. She was super easy to work with, we had some great Etsy online conversations, and man does that girl have talent! She sent me this black and gold tassel necklace as well as a gold bar necklace.
Both of the pieces are absolutely gorgeous! And they’re both made with vermeil (gold over sterling silver) and 14k gold fill. I’ve been wearing and wearing them like crazy and they have been so durable – you can tell she crafts her pieces with high quality materials. The black tassel necklace is perfect as a statement necklace, and the gold bar necklace is perfect for layering. It provides just the right touch of elegance and sparkle to any outfit. Here’s a look at one of the many ways I’ve styled it…

Sara provides very thorough instructions for how to store and clean her handmade jewelry. And the way she packaged up my pieces was adorable! She really did go the extra mile to make these necklaces look like little presents. The holiday season is quickly approaching! Her jewelry would make a lovely gift for the fashionista in your life…or maybe it’s time for you to give yourself a little gift #treatyoself
Now through November 3rd, Sara is offering 20% off of her entire Etsy store! Just use the code “PUMPKINSPICE” to recieve the discount. Happy shopping, friends!
