JEWELRY WEEKEND

copper spiral earrings
Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

I don't have a movie for you this week, but perhaps I have something even better: beautiful handmade jewelry.

These pieces by the talented Katie Grimm can be found at her etsy shop called Kaleidescope Jewels.

I've always said Dr. X was good for one good thing: jewelry. So I consider myself at least a bit of an expert on jewelry, and I especially like unique, handmade products such as Katie Grimm's.

I'd like to show you a few of my favorite pieces from her etsy shop:

This is a vintage key necklace.

I think I like jewelry with vintage keys because I like imagining the doors those keys opened once upon a time. The parts of my house that haven't been remodeled have the original crystal doorknobs  with keyholes beneath them. Oh, how I wish I had those keys!

I'm also crazy about feathers. Who doesn't like the beauty of a feather and the thought of flight?

Long white feather with Carnelian gemstone and copper wire.
Katie has bracelets, necklaces, rings, and earrings. I don't want to go into prices; I think you should look at them for yourself, but I think they're reasonable. I met Katie recently because of her jewelry. She's been very friendly

In addition to her etsy shop, Katie has more unique creations on her Facebook page --including bracelets for babies and young children (wouldn't that be great to have at a baptism or christening?) --at www.facebook.com/kaleidescopejewels.

Katie is also graciously offering us a discount of 15% on a purchase with coupon code blog 15.

You can even email Katie at grimm2005@gmail.com to make special requests for a unique piece of jewelry that reflects your personality. Katie's jewelry will make beautiful gifts, so this post is definitely not for the ladies alone. 

I wish you some happy jewelry shopping this weekend.

Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  2. She does nice work. For me though the only jewelery I seem to wear these day is that which I make myself.

  6. Dear Janie, I've gotten behind in reading blogs and so have missed your announcement of Hurricane's birthday. I have the day was a glad one.

    Thanks for telling us about these lovely jewelry and the discount. Peace.

    1. I think The Hurricane not only had a happy birthday. She had a good week.

  7. I can never look at copper jewelry without thinking of my mother. She was a great believer in its healing properties. Can't say that I ever noticed it kicking arthritis pain to the curb, but I wore the bracelets just to make her happy. My favorite jewelry belonged to my grandmother at one time... a silver snake ring and bracelet. Very sexy looking. I cannot, for the life of me, imagine her ever wearing them, though.

    Thank you so much for your kind comment regarding my mother-in-law. I do appreciate it.

    1. I love snake rings and bracelets. Wish I had one! I guess your grandmother was young and sexy once upon a time.

    1. Then you should get it with the discount. And I forgot to mention, I'm not profiting from anything that you buy. I was pleased to blog about Katie's jewelry because it's so pretty.
