Sugar Scout Couture

Sugar Scout Couture makes really bad ass jewelry. The fun shapes and colors of their earrings and headpieces really stands out and adds a funky flair to any outfit. I recently got a pair of their Sugar Scout Diamonds earrings, pictures above, and they are awesome. I love big loud earrings, and these bad boys hang against my shoulders! The earrings are lightweight though, so they don't weigh your ears down. They're made of plastic with a silver metallic coating. So fun!

I also got a pair of their awesome Sugar Scout Kara earrings, that feature a long rectangle shape of square shapes and a black chain at the top they they dangle from. Totally cute! I love that you can dress these earrings up or down to fit your outfit and mood. They also carry a lot of other fun earrings, and they even make really pretty headpieces made of chain that look awesome and are all the rage in the fashion world right now.

The packaging is cute too! Each piece of jewelry comes in a fun metallic drawstring bag. Here are photos of the packaging and earrings below.

You can totally re-use these bags or use them to store your jewelry!

Love the fun diamond shape of these earrings

I like the slightly mirrored effect of the silver colored finish.

Here are a few of my other favorite pieces from the Sugar Scout line:

Annie Montgomery Pure Designer Jewelry

Annie Montgomery Jewelry makes amazing pieces that are edgy with a hint of tribal flair. She creates beautiful one of a kind earrings, necklaces, and rings. I just adore the modern feel and raw style of her jewelry. Annie hails from Portland, and definitely has an artistic spirit. She creates each mental piece by hand and uses a variety of organic shapes and sizes. I adore her God's Eye Earrings, they are made to order and come in a choice of three sizes, small medium or large. Each pair is made of hammered sterling silver and chain, and are a modern take on the native "Ojo de Dios", or God's Eye, which is meant to bring protection. I love these earrings, and recently got them...they are even nicer in person!

The earrings come beautifully packaged in a cardboard box, and tied with a tulle ribbon. The earrings are so pretty! The silver body of the earrings is hammered for texture, and the earring hooks are made of silver as well. There is a sterling chain wrapped in the center of the earrings, to build the "eye" design. So gorgeous! The silver has a oxidized look to it to make it look more rustic and raw.

Here are some of my other favorites from Annie's collection:

Long Brass Waterfalls Earrings
Stacking Armor Rings
Delicate Chain Necklace

Gorgeous pieces, that mix romance and femininity with a edgy and modern twist. You can check out Annie's entire collection at PureDesignerJewelry.com or you can check out her Etsy shop. Annie is really nice too, and offers wonderful customer service!
