Jewelry Loving

Let me introduce y'all to one of my absolute favorite jewelry designers, Kara Strope! Kara makes some of the most gorgeous and classic yet unique and trendy pieces of jewelry. 

The funny thing is that the other day I was at a friends birthday gathering. A friend of a friend and I started talking, she started telling me that she lived in Fairhope {where I used to live} for awhile. A few moments later she put her hands in her coat pocket and pulled out an earring. She said, "OMG! I was wondering where this earring went.... too bad I lost the other one" -- or something along those lines. She started telling me about how she bought it when she lived in Fairhope and she showed it to me. Right away I knew the designer of the earring... Kara Strope! And BAM... that is how I made a new friend Jamie and also helped guide her to buying a replacement pair of earrings for her beloved pair. 

Let's start with the basics. 

A different twist on the classic pearl stud. 

My favorite {and the earring Jamie lost!}

Another twist on a classic! 

These pearl earrings can be worn with anything! They are so versatile and could be worn casual OR dressy. I think these would make the perf bridesmaid gift. A girl would have to be crazy to not appreciate this gift that can truly be worn time and time again with pretty much everything. Any of those pearl earrings could be staples in someones jewelry collection. There are so many more fabulous pearl options on the Kara Strope website.

These are so pretty. I love the clear stones. Like all the others, very versatile.

And these beauts... GORG. I am a black and gold kind of girl. 
I would wear these every where, every day. No, seriously.

But earrings aren't the only gorgeous things Kara Strope designs. Her necklaces are absolutely works of art. They are colorful, trendy and unique.... to say the least. 

You need to see for yourself:

This turquoise necklaces is just full of life. It has a vintage and eclectic feel to it but I would definitely pair it with some classic staples and it would really make a statement.

This necklace is the ultimate statement piece. Funky and modern come to mind but also classic with the chain like detail. 

As you can tell, I would probably buy every single piece of Kara Strope's jewelry if I could. However, I think I would have to invest in a larger jewelry chest. Her jewelry is just breathtaking. I am seeing big things for her future. What do you think?
