shop local :: handmade jewelry from exquistry

 jewelry is the perfect way to transform
any outfit--add a necklace, bracelet, 
earrings, broach, and/or rings to elevate the look of
your clothing. incorporate a statement necklace
and you instantly change your look. 
jewelry is a wonderful way to re-style
items in your closet and express your personality
by adding a unique 'pop.'

while i own a decent amount of 
jewelry, the majority is inexpensive, costume-
like jewelry that i could take or leave.
i have a few sentimental items and several
gifted pieces that i wear daily (including
a necklace passed down from my grandma,
charm bracelets from my mom, and a new
friendship ring from one of my girlfriends).
over the past few years, i have enjoyed finding
local designers that craft quality, handmade
jewelry that i can mix and match with 
other pieces in my closet.
disclosure: a special thank you to amisha, owner of exquistry jewelry for
providing me with the beautiful, handmade necklace in today's post.

i recently met amisha, designer and creator
of exquistry jewelry, online. amisha is
based in seattle, washington, and her sweet and
genuine personality radiate via email :) i hope
to someday meet amisha in person!

amisha is incredibly artistic and was
born into a family of creatives. she learned
to sew at a young age and began making jewelry in 2011.
 amisha feels most inspired by her indian heritage
(she was born in and spent most of her 
childhood in india) and vibrant colors.
she strives to combine fashion with color
and art, and i think this is prevalent within all
of her hand-crafted pieces.
 today i am styling exquistry's peach rose gold
swarovski pendant necklace. this bohemian-inspired 
necklace has hand-sewn beads and a light-weight clasp
for ease of wear (i often struggle with getting
clasped necklaces on and off--this clasp is great!).

because of amisha's passion for color,
i was inspired to pair my necklace with one
of my most colorful dresses. i think the two
work well together!
