The secret is out. MichiGirls like Etsy. I’m still relatively new to this amazing collection of artisans and their work. It’s such a treat to search this site. One of my recent finds is a Michigan shop called Linkel Designs.
This mother/daughter duo creates charming jewelry–earrings, necklaces, and rings–at a great price for everyone on your wish list (including you!). The designs are simple and clean, delicate with a hint of vintage. I purchased a pair of earrings with vintage beads for a friend’s birthday a few months ago. Now to decide what to buy for me. It’s so rewarding to support artisans and your home state at the same time.
The fun continues as this Etsian has her own blog: The Pretty Bee. Take a look for fun projects, recipes, etc. Enjoy!
P.S. I especially love the pieces that have little “caps” on the top, like the lavendar earrings pictured here. Hope you find a favorite too.
