Gift Idea #5 - For the Accessorizer

Today's product is one of the reasons I wanted to do this wish list. I got some Jewelry by Ash last year and ever since have been in love. I love the way it looks and feels. Ashlee makes some amazing ceramic jewelry and I pretty much wear it every day. You are really lucky because not only is she giving away a $100 dollar gift card to her etsy shop but she is also offering all our readers 15% off with the code 12DAYS. If you are going to buy someone (or yourself!) jewelry, I can't recommend Ash enough.

Ashley creates each piece from unformed porcelain clay. It is glazed, gilded and fired three separate times to create each piece. She delivers fine, handmade jewelry that is wearable modern art with an easy touchable luxuriousness (need I remind you about the 15% off?!). 

Here's my list of great gift ideas for the accessorizer in your life:

Last week we give 3 of our temple prints to the shine project to help inner city youth go to college. They also make jewelry so you can help a inner city youth go to college by purchasing  your jewelry from them. 

Next up: nailpolish!

When it comes to style, and especially nail polish, I find Cassie MacLennan of come what may to be a great resource. This girl knows her stuff about nailpolish. She tells me burgandy and navy are hot colors right now, and I trust her since she hasn't let me down in the past and I don't know any better. Cassie is well-versed in the land of OPI and says some of their best colors are How Great is Your Dane, You Don't Know Jacque, Dear Santa (currently out of stock but available on ebay), Glitzerland, and many of the colors from the current Nordic Collection.
