Green and tan agate dangle earrings by CopperNichols in Ohio ($14 - neutral enough for every day use.)
Yellow Jade and Copper Hoop Earrings by JensBeadBox in Texas ($22 - so pretty!)
Mixed Natural Amber Necklace by Karuba in Poland ($161 - expensive yes, but she has good reviews, and I'm a sucker for natural amber.)
Beer Quartz Earrings with Copper Floral Medallions by JensBeadBox in Texas ($18 - like these.)
- On the other hand I tend *not* to associate rustic with jewlery meant to evoke tribal or foreign elements of a particular culture. Both because I frequently find that they are poorly executed but also because I would not want to be seen as appropriating symbols of cultures of which I am not a member. So I tend to avoid things that clearly do so.
- I also don't consider "steampunk" stuff under the heading of rustic. Now I actually love steampunk accessories and would be happy to do an entire post on steampunk stuff - I just think that their purposefully affected take on a particular era isn't really "rustic" in any traditional sense.
And I have now explained my reasoning behind a post WAY MORE than I ever have before. This is what happens when its 4 AM and you have insomnia. But have fun!
Do you like these rustic options? Do you wear rustic jewelry? Do you have any other suggestions on what I should add to my ideas about the "rustic look"? Leave some texty text in the comments and let me know!
