Lately Loving: Raw and Rugged Jewelry


I go through phases with jewelry; sometimes I couldn't care less about it, and others I'm like a magpie, swooping down on every shiny thing I see. These past couple months I'm in full-on 'ooh! sparkly!' mode, and I'm drawn in particular to pieces that have a jagged, uncut edges and matte finishes–rings, necklaces, and bracelets that look unearthed from the annals of time.


The great things about designs like these? They're often made by independent artisans, they tend not to cost as much as the more refined and polished collections, and they're generally sold in small boutiques as opposed to the big department stores. I've been picking up little gems here and there on my travels as a souvenirs, and every time I wear them it's like hugs from my friends!
