The largest category represented at the AZ Share That You Care market was jewelry. Personally, my favorite thing to see at a local market is jewelry. I love seeing the unique, handcrafted pieces that you can’t get anywhere else. It really makes you crazy when you don’t get something and you can’t stop thinking about it for months afterwards. Thankfully in this day and age we have the internet and Instagram, which allows us to quickly make that purchase that we missed (hopefully if it isn’t a custom piece.)

IMG_4030Mer-Made Jewelry Designs is handmade custom jewelry. I first met Keri, designer and owner, at the Pineapple Triangle market last May. She hand makes all of her pieces and makes everyone different. So, if you see something of hers that you like you better buy it asap, because once it’s gone it’s gone!

IMG_3995Zenned Out Studio is another company that I was familiar with from a previous market. They started selling on Etsy and since then they have grown into a location in Tempe, AZ. Feel free to visit their storefront to shop their handmade jewelry or go online. They also offer a variety of classes like, tabletop photography, spirit and art therapy, and how to sell your own handmade goods on Etsy. My favorite pieces from Zenned Out Studio are the bangles with hidden messages on the inside.

IMG_3996Casual Cuffs stands for repurposed and eco-friendly jewelry. They repurpose belts into trendy cuffs. I found a red leather cuff with a cactus and turquoise design on the front for a statement piece. They offer a variety of comfortable, bohemian, wear-it-everyday jewelry centered on the idea of environmentally friendly fashion and re-purposed creativity.

I love Be You Jewelry and the cute silver pineapple necklace that I got. It’s a very nice symbolic memory of the Pineapple Triangle market. I love the message behind this brand of being yourself; kind, thankful, happy, beautiful and strong self.

IMG_3977Jar of Buttons is by Brendan McCaskey and he creates and collects one-of-a-kind buttons. Some he’s found thrifting and some have been given to him. Either way I’m sure you can find something special and unique for someone near and dear to you. I found too many inside jokes that I couldn’t decide which was best. Plus he can turn the button into a magnet if that’s your preference.

Sarah-Madeline Jewelry is designed and owned by Sarah Morrison. Her jewelry is very eclectic and one of a kind. It has a very bohemian, artsy and feminine feel to it. I love how creative she is, for example she had a pretty decent amount of antique keys from her husband’s family farm in North Dakota, so what did she do? She made one-of-a-kind necklaces involving these keys. Similarly, she created the earrings that you see with the keys and flowers.

Additionally, I fell in love with a couple other jewelry artist, designers and vendors. Please take a look at the images below and click on the links to continue to their websites.
