Friday's Favorite: Remnants Jewelry

It is ALL in the dainty details at Remnants Jewelry. One glorious peek into this shop makes you want to grab your cuppa, pull up your oh so overstuffed slipcovered chair, wrap yourself in your most vintage and soft chenille spread and just revel in the feminine beauty contained therein.
Samantha, the artist and shopowner, creates "one of a kind wearable art. Designed, carefully thought out and hand crafted from all different types of remnants." She currently features wrist cuffs and rings, and believe me, each one is even more lovely than the next!
Choosing a favorite is impossible, and don't these photos do an excellent job of showcasing the gorgeous details of these items? From the chosen bits of embroidery pieced from antique linens, to the delicate lacework and minute beads and bits of sparkle, the eye is treated to a spectacular feast with every shot.

I feel exceedingly more beautiful and feminine just having spent time in this shop! Samantha's goal is "to create items which are lovely to look at and a joy to wear", and I can tell by reading the descriptions and looking at the photos that she is very serious about this intention.

The items showcased here are just a tiny tidbit of what this amazing shop has to offer. Please treat yourself to a visit to Remnants Jewelry when you have a moment to swoon and dream a little. I dare you to try to choose just one favorite! Please come back and post a comment here after you have poked around; I can't wait to hear your thoughts!

Wow, Jennie! You're absolutely right. It's really hard to pick a favorite. I think I'll have to go with the Delicate Blue Blossom wrist cuff, though. It's so dainty and sweet. Excellent find! These creations are so beautiful and unique. It's great that she uses linens that are damaged to give them new life. :-)

Oh, wow indeed! Samantha's work is truly exquisite! The way she repurposes timeworn linens into her pieces is so pretty. I love the beautifully photographed 'May Flowers' cuff in her shop... so deliciously faded and frayed. Thank you, Jennie, for sharing your friend's gorgeous work :)

Wow! I love the shop, but I confess I had no trouble picking a fave-- the Irish cuff, far and away! That soft green, the delicate point- all great!
