Accessories Report: Rough-Hewn

As I perused the front page of Etsy today something caught my eye.

chunky rose quartz bracelet

This beautifully bold cuff is so interesting, yet so pretty. I just had to see what else the shop that was behind it had to offer. Astral Eye did not disappoint. In addition to the arm candy, I found some other little prettties that made my heart go pitter patter!

Cobalt Blue Carborundum Crystal Ring

chunky rose quartz ring

hematite ring

These pieces  are fun, funky and fabulously affordable! They would be perfect for adding a little edge to an overtly feminine look or to simply add some interest to a plain and tee and jeans. What do you think lovelies? Are rough-hewn accessories for you?

    DEFINITELY! One of my favorite pieces is a giant purple quartz ring from Rachel Roy. Love it, and love anything rough hewn like it.

    I love that first ring. I would most certainly wear it with my slate grey satin cocktail dress and a pair of stiletto booties. AND I also love the affordable price point too. xx veronika

    Wow – I love these! I actually saw similar bracelets in Henri Bendel that were beautiful but way out of my price range. These are much better!
