jewellery box : spring picks from Uncommon Goods

emma lamb

Besides the obvious yarn shopping, chocolate wishing and pinning the other way I find myself procrastinating the hours away in any given day is by endlessly browsing for beautiful handmade jewellery. OMG, there is so much out there! So many incredible artists creating the most uniquely beautiful baubles to adorn our ears, necks, wrists and fingers. Necklaces are by far my favourite and Uncommon Goods represents some fabulous artists in their handmade jewellery collection, these are my top picks...

Lotus on Wire Necklace by Ronni Capos at Uncommon Goods | Emma Lamb
Lotus on Wire Necklace by Ronni Kappos : OMG, I love this necklace sooooo much! Pre WWII vintage glass beads from Germany, stunning colour palette and the iconic lotus design is no longer restricted to kitchen enamelware. I love the thirties Art Deco vibe and can picture this adorning the necks of all those beautiful Gatsby ladies! If you love this necklace as much as I so be sure to check out Ronni Kappos' full collection especially the Lotus Earrings and Grain Necklace.


Silver Spoon Handcut Necklace by Moniek Van Zyl and Marlette Strauss at Uncommon Goods | Emma Lamb
Silver Spoon Handcut Necklace by Moniek Van Zyl and Marlette Strauss : How wonderfully whimsical and uniquely beautiful is this upcycled spoon necklace!? I love to see such clever upcycling ideas used in handmade jewellery and this is such a great example. If you look closely you will be able to see that the adorable wee kite is linked on chains so it will move with you and look as though it is swaying in the wind. Such a great detail!


Large Faceted Pendant by Julie Moon at Uncommon Goods | Emma Lamb
Large Faceted Pendant by Julie Moon : I adore the burst of candy colours in this geometric ceramic pendant, it's just so much fun and absolutely perfect for the coming spring. It would work so well with jeans and a plain white shirt and cardigan combo, you know that clean casual look with a tiny pop of colour? Julie Moon also has earrings and a similar smaller pendant in her collection and the Prism Pendant which would work just as well in place of this Faceted Pendant!


Copper Rays Necklace by Susan Harbourt at Uncommon Goods | Emma Lamb
Copper Rays Necklace by Susan Harbourt : Last but by no means least this beautiful and understated copper necklace, yet another stunning example of upcycling at it's best. Susan Harbourt works with reclaimed copper and silver and was originally inspired by the aged copper wiring removed from the walls of her Edwardian Era house which she wove into her very first bracelet. As we know copper is a huge trend for interiors right now and it has long been a favourite of jewellery designers but it is so good to see such a fresh take on this material in the simple design of this necklace. Love it!


As I mentioned, these are just a few of my favourites from Uncommon Goods, but here is so much more in the way of unique jewellery to discover over there. I did say I can lose hours browsing this handmade goodness didn't I!?

One thing I really love about Uncommon Goods is that they are keen to support jewellery artists and designers and are always looking to represent new talent. Each month they run Jewelry Design Challenge where you are free to submit your own work, the winner receives $1000 plus the opportunity to work with Uncommon Goods and the runners up will receive a supportive critique from the judges as well as helpful tips for growing your business from the marketing team. How fabulous is that!? The challenge is open to all US residents over 18 and accepts all kinds of design styles just so long as they are safe and animal friendly, "so no lead, leather, feathers, or pearls", what have you got to lose!? Full details here. Go, go, go!
