Birdhouse Jewelry is one of my favourite everyday jewellery makers in New York. I first saw their work at the glorious Brooklyn Flea open air market, and every so often have a little flick through their Etsy pages.
Designed by Amy and Alen Lapierre, from their studio on a very quiet waterfront street in NYC, they specialise in gold and silver jewelry – all with incredibly affordable prices – everything is $10-$50. Their pieces are great for people like me who are a little careless – it’s not the end of the world if you misplace them, and they do make perfect presents. Speaking of which, I love that their mail orders come with a free bright red giftbox decorated with a red bow & that they charge a tiny $3 for shipping within the US.
How to get your sticky mitts on Birdhouse Jewelry:
If you are in New York, they have a booth every Saturday and Sunday at Brooklyn Flea, held on Saturdays 10-5 in an outdoor schoolyard in Fort Greene and Sundays 11-6 in Dumbo, Brooklyn, directly under the Brooklyn Bridge. www.brooklynflea.com
