Natural Born Earrings
One of my favorite ways to accessorize is with earrings. I find them to be the most fun and expressive form of jewelry whereas bracelets, rings, and necklaces tend to be more sentimental in my life. There is nothing I love more than tying back my hair and allowing a bold or unusual earring to take center stage. These days I am drawn to pieces relating to nature. There is something very feminine and wholesome about wearing jewelry that brings us back to our mother earth.
While investigating this area, I came across jewelry designer, Daniela Villegas, who views life as her playground and draws inspiration from nature, friends, and family. Each of her handcrafted pieces are one of a kind and made from all sorts of unexpected materials such as wood, porcupine quills, feathers, insects, and pebbles with 18K gold and precious stones. The ethereal winged earrings worn in this feature are part of her freedom collection and are like nothing I have seen before.
