I think by now, if you've been reading long enough, you realize that I love jewelry. I love a good statement piece that people are going to ask about. I love throwing on a simple shirt and jeans and being able to make it about the jewelry instead of the outfit. I also love local, small businesses. Ashley (Piece & Tranquility) and I connected via Etsy and realized that we are in the same small town! We instantly knew that a blog post was in order! One thing Ashley and I talked about was the affordability of pieces...something people don't feel like they have to buy for a gift, but rather a "just because."
Ashley gifted me with the beautiful Gunmetal Tassel Necklace, the "Prohibition"Necklace. This necklace is so much fun. It's the perfect length for all kinds of outfits and who doesn't love a tassel? These are a few of the ways I styled it!
I can't reword Ashley's description of her company because she just has written it so well:
"For as long as I can remember, I've had a passionate love affair with jewelry. As a child, I would dangle and drip myself in my mother's endless collection. As a teenager, I'd play chameleon and experiment with different looks and styles depending on my mood. And now, even as an adult, my favorite part of getting ready for a day in or a night out is decorating myself...with jewelry.
To me, jewelry is so many things: a staple, a treat, a memory, a thrill, an illusion, a conversation piece, a talisman, an escape, a designation, an heirloom, a costume, a punctuation mark...a MUST.
Piece & Tranquility embodies everything that jewelry has been to me, and every piece that I create with thought and care is one that I've imagined draped around my neck, cascading from my earlobes or hanging from my wrists.
I hope the unique, current and affordable designs of Piece & Tranquility will become for you all that jewelry has been for me. I hope this jewelry will accompany you through all of the best moments of your life. It is a privilege to be part of your fashion story and for this, I thank you. Enjoy!"
So what are a few of the other pieces that I'm loving?
silver heart hoop earrings...how amazing are they? I'm dying to wear these on my ears!
I'm OBSESSED with these personalized initial earrings...how cute would it be to have your kids initials, your husband's initials or your initials?!
I also love the next THREE necklaces (I just couldn't choose a favorite!)
I would love wearing this gorgeous Long Labradorite Necklace to a fancy dinner.
I'd probably switch off wearing the Tiny Black Diamond Necklace and the Tiny Druzy Necklace every.single.day!
