During head-to-toe-black weather (aka anything below freezing level), colorful jewelry is my best friend. Also when I’m feeling particularly drab at the office. Anyway, I discovered three new online boutiques from solo artisans who make great jewelry that looks tailor-made but not in a cheap way. They also make for good “adult” friendship bracelets. The three shops are Simon and Ruby, Sophie Jane, and Charmed Design. Click on an image below to enter the slideshow of beaded wonder!
