Holiday Gift Guide: The Artisan Group Jewelry

The countdown to the holiday season has begun and the time for finding great gift ideas for friends and family is almost upon us. We begin the gifting season with a collection of jewelry gift ideas from The Artisan Group, an exclusive group that gives artisan makers of talented jewelry and accessories the opportunity to showcase their stunning, hand-crafted products, most of which has found homes with some of your favorite celebrities. We were very excited to highlight a few of these wonderful hand-crafted products that any jewelry lover will love as gifts. Whether you’re looking for necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings, or all the above, these designers are sure to have what you’re looking for plus you’ll be supporting small, artisan-owned businesses, and that’s always a good thing. Sometimes, small businesses may be priced a little higher than usual, but that is because they have to fund all of the equipment themselves, and they are trying to make a small profit too. For these jewelry makers, one of the best tools they have is a drill pressing metal tool that allows them to add holes into the pieces of metal for any chains that need to be added to the jewelry. The business owners need to make a profit to ensure they can keep growing their company.


  1. Ryan Bracelet by 2 Sisters Handcrafted, $126.00 – Give a truly personalized gift with 2 Sisters Handcrafted. We love the modern details and cool factor of these pieces. Any item you want can be custom made, and a one of a kind jewelry creation to your vision. Go beyond just dates and initials, choose everything from the materials used, size and loving message to that special someone.
  2. Lokum Bracelet by SariBlue, $35.00 – Have someone who loves Bohemian jewelry? Then get to know the everyday jewelry pieces from SariBlue. The mystical, earthy collection is focused on the power and theory of The Evil Eye. We love the stackable Lokum Bracelet for its message and Turkish beads available in various colors.
  3. Budding Lilacs Bracelet by J. McConkey Photos and Wearble Art, $40.00 – Ever look at a beautiful photo and wish you could take its beauty with you? Now you can. Jude McConkey captures stunning beauty in her photographs and uses them to create dynamic jewelry with both etchings and photography plates.
  4. She Believed She Could Bracelet by Woobie Beans, $44.00 – Give the gift of inspiration with these metals and stamped jewelry and accessory pieces. Created by a wife and mom, Woobie Beans offers great gift ideas for women, men and your Christmas tree.


  1. Crescent Moon Necklace by Maru Jewelry Designs, $18.00 – We’re sure it will be love at first when you feast your eyes on this collection of highly affordable, personalized and custom jewelry (can you believe this necklace is only $18.00?) that features gemstones, hand-stamped and tightwire details. It’s definitely a favorite of ours and we know. This particular necklace is available in various stones.
  2. With Brave Wings She Flies Necklace by Jessie Girl Jewelry, $46.00 – Classic style with significant thoughts. These hand-stamped, sterling silver charms can be customized to your own loving words. Your words can also be stamped on cuffs, rings, keychains and ornaments.
  3. Copper Necklace with Charm by Lisa Burek Jewelry, $45.00 – Vibrant colors and an earthy spirit are channeled through these pieces made of wirework, beads and gemstones. Whether you’re looking for pieces that are bursting with color or classic styles in not-so-classic materials, the hand-forged jewelry pieces from Lisa Burek Jewelry will charm you.
  4. Turbulent Waters Teardrop Necklace by Jennifer Casady, $45.00 – Another favorite of ours, get ready for stunning femininity and elegant, delicate pieces that are expertly handcrafted to gorgeous results.

  2. Brown Dwarf Celestial Orb Earrings by Bead Lovers Korner, $28.00 – As the name states, if you love beaded jewelry, these stunning pieces are a must-see. Offering scores of jewelry option from from simple to elaborate, sophisticated to quirky (we love the beer, wine and cheese bucket, and Starbucks coffee cup beads), Bead Lovers Korner is a great place for limited edition pieces.
  3. Cobalt Blue Cat’s Eye Earrings by Uni Q Creations, $12.00 – Another handmade jewelry designer that is perfect for those who love small and dainty jewelry pieces. These delicate pieces boasts handmade sterling silver ear wires, woven hemp, and embroidery floss.
