My first handmade holiday post was for the literary lovers. But this one? It's for the risk takers.
First up, the snow leopard ring from Morado. I've worked with Purva before, and all you have to do is browse through her shop to see how incredibly talented she is. (Her products are made of clay!) The fact that she's wonderfully sweet is just icing on the cake. Can't you just see this on the hand of your most daring girlfriend?

I love it when people can pull off a look that's chic and vintage at the same time. This is how I feel about the Miss Evelyn sweater clips from Erin's shop Sunshine and Carousels. It's old soul meets modern elegance, and I can't get enough. I've never seen Mad Men, but it's what comes to mind when I see this clip. (Joan Holloway anyone?)

For the semi-rocker, I give you The Kyla bracelet. Moorea recently came out with a line of bracelets named after her friends, and this one's namesake is the lovely Kyla Roma. (You can order them separately or all together!) I've ordered items from Moorea before and both her products and customer service are delightful...I can see myself becoming a frequent shopper.

Big chunky jewelry can be great, but sometimes the best statement is found in the understated, like these Little Twig Earrings, from Zoe's shop Pretty Zoo. They're pretty and delicate, but they still say so much! I'm always amazed at craftsmanship that can bring life into something and Zoe definitely did it here.

Statements don't have to be made just with jewelry. These Orange Damask Pillows would be perfect for the bold at heart. I actually gasped when I saw them - the colors just pop, don't they?

What do you think? Do you consider yourself a statement maker, or are you friends with one? I hope you're enjoying this series so far - I have to admit, it's been a delight to put these posts together - I'm having so much fun with it!
