did you know the original mStarr was a jewelry business? i’ve always loved jewelry and started making it a few years out of college. i focused on gemstones, beads, and wirework mostly, and made a decent run of it for awhile. while my maker days are behind me, it’s a good time for jewelry in general! endless beautiful options so i’ve rounded up some of my current favorites below.

mstarr design / jewelry i’m coveting

one / i’m a big proponent of layering necklaces + i love that this crescent + star necklace from wanderlust + co is a two-in-one!

two / statement wrapped hoops from anthro.

three / a timeless signet ring from missoma that can be personalized.

four / letter bead bracelets remins me of my youth {and in fact made something similar during my jewelry-making days!}. this one is for the littles in your life via the tot.

five / i’m not actually coveting these dainty earrings from shop cupcakes & cashmere anymore because i treated myself to them in december. i wear them every day!

six / LOVE this chain accessory from catbird. just attach to two earrings to create a whimsical look.

seven / madewell never disappoints and you can’t beat the price point.

eight / this is actually an anklet! for tiny humans! i see max rocking one this summer…via juljulgold on etsy.

nine / love this sweet nod to my sign {gemini) by wanderlust + co.

ten / a modern take on your standard hoops from anthropologie.

eleven a + eleven b / i have loved these claus signet rings for so long now. they’re both beautiful but max’s middle name is rose so….

twelve / two pairs of earrings that are meant to be worn together but clearly shine on their own. from missoma.

thirteen / the simplest of chain bracelets from anthropologie. i would wear just one but layering them would also look great.

fourteen / another beauty from missoma, this long celestial necklace is out of this world {ha get it?}.

fifteen / i wear a lot of rings {7 alone on my left ring finger!} and this classic stack from katie dean provides lots of versatility.

sixteen / emily schuman wears this diamond necklace every day + i’ve come THIS close to buying it every day.

seventeen / modern day friendship bracelets from madewell.
