Unique Artisan Jewelry from 1000 Markets

I’m sorry to tell my husband – but I’ve found a new love . . . now before you start the scandal reports to Perez Hilton I want you to know it’s not another man. (And to all of you who see an even bigger scandal from that line – no it’s not a woman either.)

So dear hubby, if you are reading this I know you don’t feel threatened. That’s because you know the only competition you have is my shopping addiction.

I like to do a little web surfing on the weekends when my spouse and I have our cuddling time. We had a great conversation last weekend. . . all of which I’m sure I would remember if I hadn’t have ran across this great little shop called 1000 Markets. Whatever he was saying sounded a lot like “pretty earrings” and “oh, la, la bracelets.” Pretty sure that’s not how the conversation went . . . but in my mind, it was all about jewelry.

So in honor of my newfound addiction here are a few of my favorites from the 1000 Markets site.

Artbead Divine Jewelry Market

Big bold beads, bright vibrant colors and lots of stylish flare, the 1000 Markets Artbead Divine section offers much to be desired. Here are a few of my favorites . . .

Latin Passion Lampwork Bracelet

Got the winter blues? This bright and bold number is sure to bring a little sun into your wardrobe. This bracelet’s warm colors remind me of a beachside sunset with a tropical drink in stow. Anyone for a margarita?

Bali Hai – Rustic Lampwork Bracelet

There’s this wonderful little street in St. Louis called Writer’s Square. I don’t know why but this bracelet just reminds me of sipping a warm cup of tea there with my girlfriends. Beautiful and completely unique, this bracelet has plenty of “old world” flare that just makes me want to curl up with a good book and an antique saucer of green tea. Do you take one lump or two?

Surfside Sterling Lampwork Bracelet

Forget the bikini . . . this little bracelet will turn heads as you sashay down the beach for an evening stroll. I love whimsy and wonder. This bracelet has a little bit of both. I can just see my children tugging my arm to get a closer look at this storybook-esque little find.

Earthbound Looks

Green, green, green and every color of the rainbow . . . these Earthbound looks are sure to captivate the Earth Mama in you!

Double Flower Glass Earrings

The perfect pair to add personality to your favorite Saturday jeans and white tee, these double flower glass earrings make me want to leave my stuffy desk and head out to the antique market for some site seeing! Anybody want to come along?

Blue Seas Cobalt Earrings

Oh, la, la! Can’t you just imagine these earrings seaside with a fabulous white bikini? (Ok. Let me rephrase that. Can’t you just imagine these with a white bikini after a three month diet and two hundred thousand crunches?) The perfect color-punch to any outfit these earrings give off the perfect hint of classic all while being thoroughly modern.

Tibetan Mala Earrings

The beauty of Tuscany with the ease of a Saturday morning stroll, these Tibetan earrings are perfect for your every fashion mood. Perfect on the go or snug up on the sofa, this pair will keep you in the limelight no matter where you choose to shine.

A Perfect Pair

Chocolate Drop Earrings

Beautiful and totally unexpected, this color combo reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice-cream in jewel form! Careful though – this pair is so deliciously delightful you might be tempted to taste the screen! I care about you guys too much to see you electric shocked so just wait until you buy them ok?

Winter Violet Earrings

No better way to beat the cabin blues than with these beautiful earrings bursting with signs of spring! Now just imagine these on a back drop of the perfect denim jacket and sun dress. Just makes your worries melt away doesn’t it?

Eastern Garden Earrings

Don’t these beauties just look like something you might find laying around on the queen’s vanity? So tea party-esque, this beautiful pair makes you adore being a girl.

But don’t just take my word for it. There are about a billion different sparkly things to treasure at 1000 Markets. If you find a favorite, send it my way. I’d love to see what you, my wonderful readers, are finding fabulous these days.
