Fun jewelry...

I love jewelry. Just ask Gus. It doesn't have to be pricey (although, I like that, too), it just needs to be pretty and/or fun. But not too crazy. A nice, simple kind of fun - know what I mean?

A couple of weeks ago, I was reading one of my favorite fashion blogs, Happily Grey, when I noticed her cute bracelets. What really caught my attention was the fact that she said they were less than $10! I had to check that out right away.


The site is Sira & Mara - and they're a mother-daughter team that makes affordable, trendy jewelry. What's not to love, right?


I picked out a couple of bracelets and the total, with shipping, was only $20! What was even better was that it only took a few days to arrive - and they were packaged in the cutest little bag! I love cute packaging. Seriously. They had me from the bag. The cute reusable (regiftable!) bag.


But enough about the bag. Love, love, love the bracelets!! One is chunky, textured, silver links with a clasp closure...(bracelet 39 - $9)


And the other is leather, with a metal bar that says "Believe", and has a slip-knot closure...(bracelet 71 - $8)


Both are very nice quality - especially for the price!


I'm pretty sure I will be ordering more from them - they have some cute necklaces, too...(I want bracelets 86 & 44 - and necklaces 58 & 30, and either 36 or 37)

They (along with Pinterest) have inspired me to try my hand at a few of my own creations! So be on the lookout for a post about my foray into bracelet-making!!
