I have a love for jewelry from the Modern Era (1900’s-1980’s), especially the style of the early 1970’s in which these bangles were inspired from.
Each piece of handmade artisan jewelry you will find is an original design and is a tribute to the beautiful things nature offers us.

Bonita Bellita Giveaway!

It's my pleasure to bring you another great shop!  Stephanie from Bonita Bellita!  She's got a wide range of beautiful accessories - for your hair and your ears!!!  I love all the pretty sparklies!!!

My name is Stephanie, an artist born, raised, and living in Southern California. I am the driving force behind Bonita Bellita. I believe that there are beautiful things in this world and I take delight in knowing that I contribute to making them and sharing that bit of romance with others. 

Elegant Peacock Feathers and sparkling gemstone- bride or formal hair accessory

The name Bonita Bellita comes from several inspirations. The first is the word "bonita" means beautiful in Spanish. I grew up speaking English but I have strong Mexican-American roots, and I couldn't deny putting those in my shop name. The second word is "bellita" means little beauty in Latin. It's also an homage to my daughter Isabella. Lastly, the fact that the words are both "b" words pays respect to my mother, Bea. She has always been supportive of me. I want my label to have heritage of love.

Jade Earrings - Jade  in Brass  - Estate Jewelry

For as long as I can remember I've always been busy with my hands, although originally my favorite materials were watercolor paints and ink. Somehow that turned into fabrics, beautiful sheer crepons and soft flowing chiffons and shimmering satins. Let's not forget about the vintage buttons and rhinestones I like to use for centerpieces! Eventually that laid way to working with jewelry as well. I taught myself how to set stones and now make earrings that sparkle. Did I mention peacock earrings are usually in stock too? I'm proud of my work and the variety you can find.

Butterfly Bobby Pins - Autumn set of four for whimsical weddings, bridesmaids, and free spirits

A couple years ago I opened Bonita Bellita on Etsy while working at a part time job in retail. I became more and more dissatisfied with working under another company's rules and my flowers began selling online. One month before the crazy holiday rush started, I just said "enough" and put my two weeks notice in. There was no turning back, and my adventure was only starting.

I never dreamed that when I started this all I would be making bridal pieces for weddings in Australia or Europe, but I've done exactly that. It's such a privilege to know my own time and effort have been part of someone's special moment, making it even more beautiful. It has all been worth it.

Win a wrap around evil eye bracelet!

I bring you a great shop I previously featured!  Samanthaa332!  Her shop has a lovely assortment of beaded stretch stacking bracelets - a definite must have for the summer time!

Hello lovelies! My name is Samantha and I’m from New York City I recently started making bracelets simply because I always searched for the perfect bracelets to pair together but could never find them. 

When people would see me wearing my own bracelets, I would always get questioned “ Where is that from?” or “Can we get a bracelet?” But after I discovered etsy I wanted to share all my bracelets with everyone else! 

I love wearing beaded bracelets, especially gemstones and I love having more than one on my arm at all times! Gemstones, have to be my favorite beads and I enjoy working with them, and I would love to 
make any type of bracelet that anyone requests me to make. 

Pairing up my bracelets makes great arm candy and help accessorize. I’m always looking for inspiration, and always trying out new types of bracelet patterns, different beads, or styles.

Pink Woven Skull Bracelet 

This week I’m making a giveaway thats open for the public, so one lucky person can win my very popular evil eye bracelet! Good Luck!!

Wristed Candy is a new shop on etsy that mostly sells beautiful bracelets and a few other trinkets.

Wristed Candy bracelets are made with Czech glass beads!  The way the faceted beads reflect the light is sooooo pretty!  Mine came with a pretty white organza bag...

I love the aurora borealis effect of the stones with the blue color - it's soooo pretty!  I love the combo of gold and blue!  I also LOVE how detailed the skull is!

The blue is paired with a gold colored skull - sooo beautiful together!  The beads are a good size, too!  Not too small and not too big!  Bracelet is stretchy, so sure to fit most wrists =)
