Recent Jewelry Purchases that I LOVE

I was recently asked about my favorite jewelry. And to be honest, I tend to fall in and out of love with jewelry. Sure, I have my pieces I always wear – my wedding rings set and my little teeny baby diamonds in my ears. However, everything else just kind of comes and goes based on mood.

With that being said, I do have a few recent jewelry purchases that I have really been loving lately.

Watch Band from Machete

Find it here: Apple Watch Band in Classic Tortoise

I wear an Apple iWatch, but when it comes to the watch bands, I prefer something that looks more like an ‘actual’ watch band rather than the silicone ones you usually see. I ordered this Machete band in the Classic Tortoise color back in March and I’ve been wearing it ever since.

I bought the 38mm/40mm/41mm version with black hardware and it cost $65 (I think at the time I found a promo code from somewhere, so it’s worth it to google for one). Along with the watch, they send you a band adjustment kit – which I used to take 2 links out so the watch band fits my wrist. After almost 6 months of daily wear, it still looks perfect!

Lightweight Leather Earrings from BEELERY

Find them here: BEELERY on Etsy

I’ve recently started really loving big earrings. However, heavy earrings drive me nutty… so I searched out the lightest – but most fun – earrings I could find. Nickel & Suede is the brand that kind of ‘started’ the whole leather earring thing, but they’re a bit pricey ranging from $32 – 45 per pair. I have had luck buying the brand on Poshmark though for more than half off retail prices.

After picking up a few pairs secondhand, I checked out some etsy artists making very similar items and found BEELERY. I bought a pair of star earrings for just $15 and another pair that combined wood and leather for just $15.50.

There are lots of super cute designs and each pair is handmade by Deborah in Austin, Texas.

Necklaces from Katia Designs

I was fully *influenced* when it comes to Katia Designs. First, they got me on Instagram. Then, Facebook. I’d click through and pick a bunch of necklaces I love, but then leave before committing. Then the whole thing would start over again until I finally gave up and completed my order.

The first necklace I ordered was the Lighting Bolt ‘design your own’ necklace ($99). I picked the Matte Black chain, the amethyst stone and a bronze finish pendant. The super cool thing about these necklaces is that they come with a special double-sided magnetic clasp that you can put on the necklace in a few different ways so that it styles differently.

I mean, how ADORABLE is this?!

I also recently made a second order that should arrive later this week. This time for the ‘Remember who the F*$K You Are’ necklace ($99). For this one I picked the multi-colored chain, blue agate stone, and bronze finish.

I love these necklaces so much that I even got an affiliate link that I can pass through to you all. If you click on any of my Katia Designs links (or this one) and use the code KARM10 you will get 10% off your order.

Disclosure: Only the Katia Designs links are affiliate links.

  1. Have you ever tried clay earrings? They are soooo light. Maybe a few grams each. They are amazing and fun and colorful. My favorites are from Aclay Jewelry, Breanna Ellevold Art, and Desert Clay Designs. You should check them out on Instagram! Before this I only wore studs or huggie hoops but decided to go for the bigger, more colorful look and it’s so fun!

    1. No, I’ve never tried clay earrings… that’s an excellent idea! Thank you for your specific recommendations too of brands you love — I’ll check them out!
