September may bring cooler weather and falling leaves but here at Fair Ivy, September means our subscribers are getting some shine, sparkle and a bit of glitz added to their everyday style. This mini bunting necklace is sweet with just a bit of edge and was handmade just for Fair Ivy. Read on to see the adorable packaging and this little bit of handmade loveliness.
Arriving in the tiniest box ever, the monthly gift box for September is brought to you by Bunnies in LA, located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. We simply love the mini bunny stamp adorning each little box and the artist card.
Carefully tucked inside, Fair Ivy subscribers will find this lightly hammered bunting necklace. Each triangle is formed by hand and gently hammered to add a little bit of texture to the front surface. The necklace itself sits along the collarbone and has a lobster clasp to keep it firmly in place.
In business since 2012, Bunnies in LA makes necklaces, charms , rings and other pieces. Their designs are a little bit of dainty and a little bit of edginess, with an easy to wear style. Although this bunting necklace was made just for Fair Ivy subscribers, be sure to check out the Bunnies in LA shop to see all of the other lovely pieces they offer.
The October artist of the month hails from the Seattle area and has designed a lovely set for our Fair Ivy subscribers. Simple details with a bit of hammering and a bezel setting, this crystal bracelet and ring is modern, classy and full of warmth and light. Can’t wait to find out more about this month’s gift box? Scroll down to check out all the details and find out more about the artist of the month.
Each gift box has two items designed and made by Natalie at Modest Elements Jewelry . Both pieces are crafted from 14k gold fill and are lightweight pieces that embrace minimalist lines- simple, easy to wear alone and they play well with others too. Much of Natalie’s work incorporates natural materials such as stones and crystals and you’ll also find layered necklaces, geometric shapes and daintily linked chains.
The ring in this month’s surprise package has been hand forged and lightly hammered on the ends to add texture and detail. Each ring is open ended to allow for a cozy fit that isn’t too snug. The thin gold band can be stacked with other rings to make a bolder statement or worn by itself for just a bit of shine.
Along with the hammered ring, October’s subscribers received a delicate crystal bracelet, handmade from gold fill chain and set with a spring clasp. The chain bracelet has an understated elegance and is an easy to wear piece that is perfect for everyday use. With an extra long tail, this gold bracelet is a breeze to clasp and lets you find the perfect length for a comfy fit.
