It all started when I came across these “fakelite” bat wing earrings on Etsy – I adored them, but because of my haircut, no one can really see my earrings on a normal day, but WHAT IF THEY COULD BE DRESS CLIPS. I messaged Summer Blue and the answer was affirmative, that I must be reading her mind because she was thinking about doing sweater clips with a removable chain. Two weeks later, said bat sweater clips were in my hands and a fan was born!
My obsession continues – in a nutshell, Summer Blue creates “high-quality, handmade jewelry with a vintage flair. Inspired by fine and costume jewelry from the 20’s to the 60’s with an emphasis on the Bakelite and confetti Lucite styles.” The quality is stellar, you can tell she puts a lot of thought into her designs and the execution. The selection of crazy adorable jewelry is HUGE, but her designs fly off the shelf – I went back to get a Christmas holly pin on my wish list from last week, thinking I’m ahead of the game, and it was already gone! Finally, the prices just can’t be beat – real bakelite can be 10 times the cost of these items, and other fakelite reproductions tend to run a bit higher in price, but Summer Blue manages to deliver the most adorable goods at a very reasonable cost.
I’m in LOVE LOVE LOVE! Take a gander at my faves, but go look for yourself because there’s something for everyone here!
