With the passing of the first day of fall, I am feeling inspired with the changing of the seasons. First, I made my delicious homemade Old German Banana Bread and shared it here with my recipe. Then, two weeks ago I died my hair a warm, fall mocha color. Admittedly, it took some getting used to, but at least it’s not Fifty Hairs of Grey any more. And now I love it. Change is good and it’s super fresh and funky. What’s also fresh are these charming, orange drop earrings I am absolutely smitten over.
I’m a huge fan of antiques, and these orange oval faceted gem drop earrings from Natalie Jeanne Designs are a perfect blend of modern-antique. The orange gemstone adds a flash of color while the leverback clasp gives it that special unique touch.
Full disclosure, I have super sensitive ears. For as long as I can remember I have broken out in a rash any time I wore certain metals. However, the leverbacks didn’t bother me a bit when I wore them last weekend.
Last weekend, Brandon, the girls and I attended a German festival called Oktoberfest. I usually wear stud earrings for casual events, but these drop earrings made feel fall-festive and pulled together without being prissy.
As with most items in her etsy shop, Natalie Hilbert named these adorable little guys after her grandmother, Dora Jean, who is also the inspiration for Natalie’s shop name, Natalie Jeanne Designs. Dora Jean loved southwestern design, so this set was created in her honor.
What makes this Etsy shop special to me is the full embodiment of female strength and beauty. Why not have a piece in your jewelry box that was created out of pure tenderness. And seriously, at only $11, you can’t beat that price for a new piece of jewelry that freshens up your fall wardrobe. Rather than heading to big-name chain stores, join me in supporting small businesses like Natalie Jeanne Designs this holiday season.
