Lacy, from Lacy Lou Designs, describes herself as a busy mom and self diagnosed fabric addict. Her items are all handmade and she offers purses, key chains, wallets and other items in her Etsy shop, Lacy Lou Designs. The clutch purse she designed for our Fair Ivy subscribers combines grey pinstripes and a white vegan leather in a subtle color palette that plays well with any outfit.
Every Fair Ivy item is handmade, vegan, hand wrapped and chosen specifically for our subscribers. This month’s Thyme gift box is no exception and Lacy Lou Designs has include one final touch to make it even more special. After all, the only thing better than unwrapping one gift is unwrapping two gifts. Tucked carefully inside each purse is a pair of button stud earrings, made of matching pinstripe fabric with a clasp backing.
Our Rosemary subscribers are enjoying their monthly gift boxes and the gift this month comes from Susi D. Jewelry in Valencia, California. Handmade and wrapped by the artist herself, this silver horseshoe necklace is feminine and playful. Keep reading to see the packaging and unwrapping of this month’s Rosemary subscription.
Every monthly gift is handmade by artists, using vegan and cruelty free materials. Inside each box, you’ll find a gift exclusively for Fair Ivy subscribers and an artist’s card that tells about the piece and the story behind it. Susan, the face behind Susi D. Jewelry, officially opened shop in 2008 but has been making jewelry for much longer. Inspired by the unexpected turns and the beauty in life, Susan’s jewelry is feminine and elegant, with unexpected details that add charm and playfulness.
The necklace chosen for this month’s Rosemary box is hand formed and then hammered to add shimmer and reflection to the piece. The classic horseshoe charm makes this piece timeless while the hammered texture adds a modern twist. Sitting close along the neckline, this horseshoe necklace can be layered with other pieces or worn alone.
A closer look shows the surface texture of the horseshoe and the warmth and sparkle that it reflects. In addition to hand crafted necklaces, Susi D. Jewelry also offers bracelets, earrings and other pieces. Her work includes silver, gold and other metals and many of her pieces incorporate semiprecious gems.

Inspired by nature and screen printed with an original design, our Rosemary subscribers are in for a treat this month. This month brings a soft and cozy infinity scarf, made from an organic cotton and bamboo blend that you can’t help but touch. Let’s take a look at the Rosemary subscription!
The printed scarf sent to Fair Ivy members is printed with an aqua ink that was mixed exclusively for us and is decorated with succulent plants. Long enough to loop twice and with a lightweight fabric, the scarf from Flytrap Clothing is breezy and an easy add on to any outfit in your closet. The extra width allows this scarf to be easily draped and for those with little ones, it is wide enough to double as a nursing scarf.
