Every month Fair Ivy sends a handmade find, with a guarantee of jewelry being included every other month. May is one of the months featuring jewelry, so let’s see what shiny little pretty we’ve got.

Bracelet On Wrist
Silver Chalcedony Bracelet from Simply Lovely Handmade
(Retail: $???)
Descripton: “This delicate bracelet, custom designed in collaboration with Fair Ivy, features a pink chalcedony gemstone on a sterling silver satellite chain.”
Verdict: Hit!
Layering delicate jewelry has been on trend this season, so this lovely gemstone bracelet is perfect for the season. I have a lot of gold toned bracelets, but very few silver so this will work wonderfully in my collection. The pink shade will also coordinate well with lots of other colors. This piece was custom designed for Fair Ivy so I couldn’t find it on the website in order to come up with a comparable retail price.

I paid $36.95 (including shipping). I think that’s an excellent price for a sterling silver bracelet with a lovely gemstone, so I’m quite happy with my purchase. Next month will bring us a different handmade surprise. I’m hoping for something in the home décor category.

Do you enjoy handmade jewelry? If so, where is your go to shopping site?


THE BACKSTORY

 Fair Ivy is a subscription box of beautifully wrapped, vegan friendly handmade items made by individual artisans from the US.

Subscriptions currently cost $30/month + Shipping.

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island trying to help real people, while making up stories about imaginary ones. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure, was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.
