Crazy Daisy Designs

Melissa Ullom is simply crazy about fine art, fashion, colorful gemstones and shiny things, so it was only fitting that this passion materialize into her very own line of jewelry, Crazy Daisy Designs. Each piece ranges from simple to stunning, serving as the perfect accessory for either a sundress or a tailored suit and heels. Take my 3 faves for instance…

The Black Onyx Nest Ring ($44) is simple enough for an everyday accessory but strong enough to hold it’s own as the perfect cocktail ring.

The White Jade & Pearl Fringe Bracelet ($64) would be an elegant touch to little black dress ensemble.

And the Funky Beaded Cuff Bracelet ($49), with its beautiful blue and green hues, will take you from casual to dressy all through spring and summer.

Donda Designs

Karen and Kelly are the twin sister duo behind Donda Designs. Men’s ties are their medium of choice for their attention getting, one-of-a-kind bags and what an interesting one that is. I’ve seen this attempted elsewhere with less than impressive results but the Donda Designs bags are spot on with their simple and sturdy design. In three different sizes and styles – Mini Tote, Medium Tote and Messenger – there is a bag to meet everyone’s needs.

Green Striped Tote, $50

No matter what, you are sure to get noticed with one of these pups on your arm, but I’m thinking, why not play up this unusual medium. Throw a vintage tie tack or clip on your tie bag, or if you feel that it needs a little extra (but not too much) girly touch, this black flower pin could be just the right detail. Have fun with it!

Black Flower Pin, $49
