And we think there's really something for everyone in here. There's a beautiful variety of wire, clip on and post earrings, cuff and bangle bracelets, and statement necklaces in tons of styles.

Pattern Perfect - New Belts from Marjorie Baer!

We've just updated our belt collection on the store with nine new styles. This new belt mini collection is all about pattern, texture, and detail. And as usual a great combination of shapes and metal colors.
          
Marjorie started out making belts and these new styles reflect some of her earliest inspiration: bold tribal art and pattern, combined in unique and sculptural ways.
These belts are also really cool to wear. You can add them to a minimal outfit to amp up the detail, or layer them over a bold pattern to really get a maximalist thing going on.
        
This is also a great preview of what's coming up in the next full collection available in September. So if you like what you see...there's more to come!

Shameless Self-Promotion Post :)

Everyday Earrings

When I'm writing product descriptions for the store or talking with people about Marjorie Baer Jewelry, I often use the term everyday or go-to especially to describe the earrings. I sometimes worry that people will interpret that as pedestrian or ordinary when what I mean is quite the opposite.

I, like most people, sometimes have trouble getting out the door in the morning. Whether its because I'm pressed for time or have a I-have-nothing-to-wear moment, I end up rushing around at the last minute. That's why its really great to have a couple of pairs of earrings that you know go with everything and are comfortable to wear all day. Its like having a great pair of jeans or a black handbag - it just makes things easier. You look put together when you get to work even if you had a frantic morning.

I know a lot of people who don't wear jewelry because its just another thing to think about and they don't have the time. But when the jewelry you have is super versatile and cool - putting it on is easy and gives you a boost. 

So that's what I mean when I say everyday - I mean that the style is versatile, modern, and makes getting dressed smooth an uncomplicated which is pretty great!

Lead-free and nickel-free jewelry

I feel like I've been hearing a lot lately about companies selling products that contain nickel and lead. Urban Outfitters and Fitbit have had issues with this recently. My reaction has simply been "What! Why?" At this point, it seems lazy and irresponsible to sell products that contain these metals.

Lead is sort of a no-brainer. Don't put it in things that touch your skin or that young kids could play with or put in their mouths. And nickel, while its not toxic and not nearly as dangerous as lead, is a very common skin irritant. Even if you are immune, would you want to gift someone an accessory that might give them a rash?

Most likely for these companies, its simply an issue of not overseeing production, wanting things made as cheaply as possible, and perhaps not realizing the consequences. But because we make everything ourselves, we have total oversight over the manufacturing process and only buy materials that we're sure are free of toxic metals. Our products are totally lead and nickel free - so you can feel comfortable wearing them and giving them as gifts.

 

Bracelet Stack

Love a haphazard stack of bracelets. This one has:

All these with a simple little chain bracelet: Awesome!

Painted Burlap Earring Holder

Burlap is perfect for a DIY jewelry display. The woven texture is made for hanging wire earrings. I thought I would paint it to not only change the color but also keep it from fraying. I just used some interior house paint I had lying around. It works great!

 

Here's a close up:

 

Ended up trying black and white. Both are pretty cool
