Happy October, friends! Since our focus this month is to “Lean into the Fall” we wanted to make sure we brought you a contributor that honors our idea of relaxing into the season and celebrating the journey. To do this, we found an artist that brings a sense of meaning to each and every piece. We found an artist that invests time in the beginning so that the end result is that much greater. We found an artist that, essentially, cares.
Liz Duarte learned how to hand stamp jewelry a handful of years ago and has been creating ever since. Rustic Metal Creations blends the nostalgic with the present, intention with creation. While I tend to be quite particular about “personalized” jewelry, I find myself immeasurably drawn to the simple, pure aesthetic of Duarte’s collection. This Stainless Steel Mini Initial is absolute perfection and I find myself coveting the Solid Copper Metal Bar Keychain in an almost unhealthy way. (I said “almost.”) You can “Lean into the Fall” by wearing your heart on your sleeve, but it might be a lot easier to just wear a piece from Rustic Metal Creations.
