Lately the jewelry on Etsy has been dominated by that quaint woodland creatures and twigs aesthetic of the moment. Have you noticed? I do love its frolicky ways, but what I’d really love to see is a breath of feather and fur-free fresh air. Yawn.
Enter JamieNoel Jewelry. Stacey’s “interactive” jewelry featuring 1930′s carnival, circus and boardwalk aesthetics are waaaaay more titillating than titmice and chickadees. One pendant features a rocket that launches past a grinning moon, another boasts a be-bobbed bathing beauty who emerges from a boldly-striped changing cabana in her costume, there’s a fortune-teller which actually tells fortunes (allegedly), a puppet show with moving puppets, puzzles, games and circus animals. They are exquisitely-made and you will never be bored in your dentist’s waiting room again.
And I’m obsessed with my silver Acrobat Headband (my precious…). It’s an outfit-maker if I ever saw one!
“First Floor Ladies Shoes, Second Floor Cosmetics!”
Remember back when ladies dressed ‘to the nines’ for a trip to the department store and elevators had operators? That was the inspiration for this Vintage Department Store Elevator Necklace with an elevator that really goes up and down.
Simply pull up on the decorative silver filigree knob and the elevator glides up to the top floor, revealing the vintage shoe department scene underneath. The adorable elevator operator is actually the Phillip Morris Bell Boy from old radio show commercials.
The back of this necklace features a vintage photo of Macy’s in New York.
Made from sterling silver solder and hand cut glass.”
