I love thoughtful, handmade unique jewelry. Something others don’t have, something different and stunning. Handcrafted, maybe embroidered, maybe made with items not intended for jewelry. The following slideshow finds are just that; distinctive, unique and handmade. Jewelry can be so personal, I hope you enjoy. (Above: Maranon).

Neon Pink Monogram Necklace 2 of 8Love the graphic quality of monograms! And each of these has a little history--the letters were each found in vintage dictionaries dating from the 1890s to the 1950s. The punchy neon pink glass beads makes it just a little perkier.
