*This is a paid post from an APW Sponsor*
It’s been a long crazy APW week, with a lot of intense posts and discussion and community. Which is why I’m delighted to end the week with some good old fashioned indie shopping. Mmmm. I’m delighted to introduce you to the brand new APW sponsor, Ashlee, who has two stores: My Cellar Door, where she sells beautiful handmade jewelry and Nomsa (Pretty Little Things), where she sells indie accessories and jewelry. Shopping that supports a working artist? Hooray! Her work is beautiful, and affordable (and was recently featured at Anthropologie). She also gives discounts on multiples, which makes her stores an extra great place to shop for weddings. It’s great for wedding jewelry, bridesmaid’s gifts, and um, just for shopping? For yourself? For no reason? Yeah. Happy Friday.
So! Because I love you, I picked some of my favorite pieces for your shopping pleasure. Like this Geometry necklace, $24, and some other slightly more indie picks: the black hole necklace for $29, or the pyrite (fool’s gold) nugget necklace for $24. Please wear these to your wedding? Or, you know, just with a tee-shirt.
I think the Gold Filigree Lace necklace for $23 would look killer with a simple sheath wedding dress. And a few other graceful picks that I loved were the goddess-y Brass Leaf Charm necklace for $23, and the sea-foam quartz square earrings for $24. Yum.
But maybe you want something more classic for your wedding? Well, I’ve so got you covered. How about this lovely gold infinity necklace (Which is clearly perfect for your wedding day. Infinity! Get it! Ha! Sigh.) for just $25. I have to admit that even my tastes in traditional jewelry veer a bit towards the quirky, but I’m awfully fond of this simple vintage brass locket necklace for $23. And for the actually classic among you? This freshwater coin pearl necklace would be a beautiful gift for your ladies, at just $19. Indie bridesmaids’ jewelry gifts for the win!
In Ashlee’s shop Nomsa, she has more pops of color, hair things, and floral accessories. I’m very fond of these purple mum earrings, and think they would be kicky little bridesmaids’ earrings (and a great way to tie together generally coordinated but not matching outfits).
And oh my god you guys. The Guinea Feather Headband? I don’t even know if I should recommend that you wear it as a bride, or give it to your bridesmaids or just wear it every day, or what. But I want one now. For me. For now. Forever.
And finally! The flowers that made her famous! These Poppy Red Satin Flower Hair Pins are $14, and she just sold bunches of them to Anthropologie, but you can get your own from her directly! Also, there are these beautiful white floral hairpins, if you want something bridal but still sassy for $17.
So happy shopping ladies. Get yourself something lovely and affordable. You deserve it. And happy Friday.
