Take a visit to the local library

Local Library Handmade NecklaceWith so many Etsy artists creating gorgeous handmade jewelry, I’ve been stocking up on accessories right from the comfort of my own couch. Sort of like having a jewelry trunk show right in your living room, except without the longwinded presentations.

One of our new favorite etsians is New-York-based jeweler Lauren Haupt, who uses a variety of dainty elements like vintage charms, wood, and metal combined with oxidized silver to create simply beautiful necklaces. I’ve got my eye on the “Delight in Color” necklace (pictured), that features two vintage Swarovski crystal charms hanging from an oxidized silver chain. What a perfect way to welcome Spring. And at $34, you’ll have to beat me to it. -Kristen
