If you haven’t already taken a detour from my sidebar to this shop, you are in for a treat. Today I would like to show you some of the ridiculously cool work Melodie Telliez, the jewelry maker behind Slinky Links, creates.
The above are only some of my favorite things from her Etsy shop, where she sells handmade jewelry pieces made from reclaimed leather. From bridal to statement, each piece is unique — and uniquely Slinky Links. I’ve honestly never seen anything quite like it anywhere else, and I am amazed by the way Melodie is able to mold her designs to styles as far ranging from each other as classy from Halloweenesque or country from medieval (like Game of Thrones? You just hit the jackpot), all contributing to a cohesive whole.
When I had the chance to pick something from her shop, though, I went for neither elegant nor bold: I went for cute. She has these adorable cat brooches that I just fell in love with as soon as I saw them. I rarely wear brooches, though, so I asked if she might be able to create a similar design in earring form — and she came up with these:
Are they the cutest thing or what? Even my mom thinks they’re adorable, and my mom is rarely impressed by jewelry.
Melodie was kind enough to send me two pairs of these gorgeous black cat studs, one to keep and one to give away to my readers! If you want your own pair, all you need to do is fill out the entries on the Rafflecopter below, and you may just win it!
