Maybe you have noticed the jewelry I wear in some of my blog posts. I don’t know, maybe no one reads blogs anymore. But, I’ve had these photos of some of my favorite Native Clutter jewelry for a long time, meaning to tell you guys about it.
This jewelry obsession is something I never would’ve seen coming. I have always leaned toward the tomboyish side of things. I associated jewelry with the awful stuff girls bought at Claire’s Boutique in the eighties. The only jewelry I ever wore were things from my grandmother and some turquoise and leather pendant necklaces I made from a couple of keychains. But those were the adornment I liked: vintage pieces and natural rocks.
I think I first heard of Native Clutter from Stephanie’s maker’s blog. I was blown away by every thing in her shop. Every thing. There are all types of stones, geometric shapes, and vintage fittings. There is nothing she designs that I wouldn’t wear, even if I’m just hanging around the house.
I get compliments on them all of the time- from men and women. Yesterday it was a boy working at Starbucks. So, if you happened to notice them in lots of my photos, it’s because I wear them all of the time.
For Christmas my husband asked Stephanie if she’d make a custom design for me and this necklace and earring set is what she created. I was speechless. I also couldn’t believe he heard all of my hinting.
So, yeah, I’ve amassed a collection over the last few years. When I have extra cash that I might once have spent on a piece of clothing, I buy this stuff instead- this, books, music, and yarn.
Oh look, here’s more photos of me looking incredibly solemn in my jewelry and finished knits.
Below are some functional bracelets that I also love to wear wear. If you’re a knitter, you’ve already seen them. I got my Wrist Ruler from Tolt Yarn and Wool. I wear it daily and use it constantly to make sure my gauge isn’t going haywire.
The stitch marker bracelet is from Magpie Fibers. They have some other styles that I like too, but this one was my favorite.
