This is the first installment of the Shop Small Series! Today I would like to show you bracelets (and several bookmarks) from several creators who I have purchased from in the past year. Disclaimer: these photos are my own and I have purchased these items with my own money unless otherwise stated. The intent of the Shop Small Series is to spread the word of talented creators that I admire!
Delicate Quote Bracelets from Bouton Rouge Designs
I found Bouton Rouge Designs during my search for dainty quote bracelets. I was anamoured by the delicate designs, ordering a bracelet featuring the mantra “Dream Big.” I wore this bracelet nearly every day for an entire year. It still looks as good as it did when I first bought it! I had to purchase a second one, featuring one of my favourite Latin phrases, “per aspera ad astra,” meaning “through hardships to the stars.” If you are looking for a beautiful customized jewelry gifts for friends or family, I recommend checking out this shop!
Beautiful Sunset Theme Set From Sunset Skyknots
When I came across Sunset Skyknots, I had the hardest time selecting a set to purchase because I loved them ALL! Located in Alberta, Canada, this creator features a wide variety of styles and colour schemes. The bracelet set included two bracelets, and the creator even threw in stickers! I was so appreciative – I am always a sucker for stickers!
Elegant Blue Gradient Friendship Bracelet from AdorablyRepresenting
I was enticed by the super unique patterns featured at AdorablyRepresenting! I had never made any of these patterns myself in the past. The ends of the bracelets are beautifully finished and the blue gradient pattern is perfect and elegant for everyday wear! This creator is based in Montreal, Quebec.
Vibrant Fall Colour Friendship Bracelet from Megz Makes Crafts
In my search to support other Canadian bracelet vendors, I found a vendor located in the province of Alberta, Canada. Megz Makes Crafts features wonderful friendship bracelets. When I received the package, it contained a beautiful personalized note along with a perfectly made bracelet! If you enjoy watching bracelet video tutorials, you should absolutely check out her YouTube channel.
Unique Friendship Bracelets from Bracelets by Bri
I was searching yet again for Canadian bracelet vendors and came across the unique styles of Bracelets by Bri. I was drawn to the beautiful patterns and colour schemes and knew I had to purchase a set of my own! The bracelets are absolutely beautiful and super well made!
Bookmarks from Sonnet & Fable
I am also an avid reader. One of my favourite authors is Sarah J. Maas (I know discussions regarding her works are polarizing in the book community! ?), so I was seeking bookmarks with quotes from her new adult series “A Court of Thorns and Roses.” I found the shop Sonnet & Fable and purchased these three bookmarks (two feature quotes from A Court of Thorns and Roses, the third is one of my favourite quotes from Alice in Wonderland). They are beautiful and I love them! If you love books too, I believe you will enjoy this store too.
