Rock Steady: Chase.Dakota Jewelry

Chase.Dakota's collection on Etsy

I have a hard time purchasing jewelry. Some of it looks too cheap and dispensable, and other pieces are priced beyond what I would ever spend.

OK, OK, so the truth comes out; I would rather splurge on shoes because shoes are never too expensive. But honestly, I'm fine with getting jewelry as gifts--my collection mainly consists of keepsakes and of course my wedding diamonds.

I probably struggle because I don't practice "frosting" myself that often. However, this whole 70's craze, involving large crystals and rare rocks has got me going...and swooning over one designer in particular, which my favorite Australian blogger, Opinion Slave, introduced me to.

Her fellow Aussie jewelry designer friend goes by Chase.Dakota and she sells her handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces on Etsy for very reasonable prices. She adds new jagged creations to her marketplace every day so be sure to stay au curant, but don't go too crazy and save some for me.
