I personally love handmade jewelry. I love all things beaded and sparkly but I also love a good tassel here and there. Like many of you I have an eclectic taste in adornment and there are some really great shops on Instagram you can follow and buy from. The best part: you’ll also be supporting small businesses and the Latinas who are out there hustling and end up looking fly as hell. Now that’s a win-win. Here are five jewelry shops that should definitely be on your radar.
If you’re like me, you’re super into healing stones and crystals, Rochelle Martin has created a full line of beautiful, simple designs that incorporate crystals into everyday accessories.
