There are just so many gorgeous handmade shops out there that I want to start sharing some of my favorites with you. Those shops that catch my eye, make me happy, bring a smile to my face.
Simply, shops that I adore.
I feel in love with Meg's ruffle necklaces right away! All the colors! They're simple with a touch of quirkiness.
Of course this one's my favorite (I love gray!)
Meg has a huge variety of gorgeous and unique jewelry.
What is the story behind your shop name?
Not much of a story really! I needed a name pronto and I didn't want something pretentious, so instead I decided on something very simple and straightforward, thus Pretties by Meg :) I left out the word jewelry just in case I wanted to broaden the types of handmade items available in my shop somewhere down the line; I didn't want to ever feel constricted by my shop name.
What inspires you to create?
I am inspired by a deep-rooted, overwhelming desire within me to create, that I believe was given to be by my Creator. I am also inspired by fashion, design and home decor (among other things).
What can be found in your shop?
COLORful and unique vintage-meets-modern jewelry (earrings and necklaces). I tend toward metals with an antiqued finish and like mixing new beads (and fabric) with old to create eclectic, one-of-a-kind pieces.
What is one word to describe your work?
Vintern. Never heard of it? That's because it was a word created by my hubby to descrive my style (vintage + modern). :)
I think your style is just perfect! I adore Meg just as much as I adore her shop!
