New Melissa Joy Manning!
Whenever we get new jewelry in it always lifts all of our spirits! There's just something wonderful about opening a box and unwrapping all these gorgeous gems that gets me every time! Well, lets just say, it was a very fun day for me yesterday to open our Melissa Joy Manning jewelry! Oakland based designer, Melissa uses 14 karat gold with semi-precious stones. Each piece is handcrafted in her Oakland studio with only domestic materials. And they all have a very organic and unique feeling to every one of them. The hoops that she makes are so delicate and I love that she does triangle and square versions instead of just the simple circle hoops. The 24" chain necklace with onyx and white topaz drops is just stunning! And I am obsessed with the Herkimer diamond stud earrings...So much that I had to order a pair for myself! (And my boyfriend who NEVER comments about anything I wear, said last night that he liked my earrings!! I didn't even tell him that they were new!!) Come snag these gorgeous pieces before they are all gone!!
