In the Urban Dictionary, I found this fascinating description of the word "funky" as it comes to style:Â
"Funky can be a mixture of thrift store and name brand, lace and leather, a simple gold bracelet and a huge plastic pink one, matching or unmatching, a ton of jewelry or none, classy and trashy. Being funky is about taking risks, and not being afraid to get a stare or two from people who wish they could be as funky as you . . . funky is never about boring."
I love that definition! Â It was with that in mind, I decided to curate a collection of "Fun and Funky Handmade Jewelry
" . . . jewelry will never be boring. Â Here are some of the pieces from the collection:
Tribal style earrings with Peruvian ceramic beads, wood beads, suede cord and copper handmade by Mary of PrettyGonzo
