I'm so excited to introduce you guys to Jennifer of, Belle Hibou guys. It took just one look at her amazing Etsy shop and I knew I had started an instant jewelry obsession.
Every piece is hand crafted and inspired by nature, travel, and vintage things of the past. Right up my alley, I tell you.
Take that Fields of Lavender necklace. I mean look at it! It's a tiny glass vial holding a little single sprig of dried lavender! I want them all. At 1 1/4" long, it's maybe the most precious thing ever. Then there's her Vintage Camera necklace...where are all my photography loving friends at? This thing is perfect! It features an old timey twin lens reflex camera and hangs from an antiqued brass chain. Swoon. If that wasn't enough, her Feathered Nest necklace tugs at my nature/animal/all-things-Native-American loving heart. This amazing necklace has a lovely 2" brass feather accompanied by three little speckled Robin's egg beads. Sigh.
If necklaces aren't your thing, she's still got you covered with rings and bracelets, brooches, and earrings. On the top of my list, Jennifer's Wooden Filigree Teardrop earrings. I'm totally in love with the color of those teal beads. Surprised? They totally compliment the wood, don't ya think?
I knew choosing something from Belle Hibou would be a seriously tough decision. I mean, I literally could have ended up getting about 478 things! Knowing my darling husband wouldn't have been the happiest human on earth with that, I decided to stick to one. I narrowed things down to about 3 "MUST HAVES" and then sat on that for a few days. Finally, I made my decision and went with her amazing (and I do mean amazing) Lavender Shadowbox necklace.
Holy. Cow. I am so in love with this piece it's not even funny. Or maybe it's a little funny because maybe 5 years ago you couldn't catch me dead looking at jewelry. Wedding ring, ONE necklace, and same earrings I've had on for, OooOoohh maybe the last 8 or so years was ALL I OWNED. Fast forward to today and I have collected some seriously cute pieces. So many in fact that I just might need to invest in a jewelry box! Gasp. Look at me. All grown up and stuff.
I can't praise the quality and loveliness of this necklace enough. If it's any sign as to the greatness you'll find with the rest of her things, count me in as a customer for life. The antiqued brass chain is a nice change up to my usual shiny gold or silver ones I already own. The locket is the ideal size and holds two perfectly colored, vibrant, undamaged little sprigs of lavender. Of course I chose this necklace right? Hello, Sweet Lavender Bake Shoppe.
I'm so not the type of girl who likes big gaudy things on, so with the locket at just about an inch wide, it's just perfect.
