Giveaway: An Effortlessly Cool Bauble from A Common Thread

Mamas, allow me to introduce my new favorite jewelry designer, Stefanie from A Common Thread.  Stefanie is based in Brooklyn, and makes all of jewelry by hand.  Her ascetic is one part minimalist, one part vintage, and one part sofreakingcool.

I've been wearing her Peter Pan Collar Necklace everywhere – to work, date night, even out with the kiddos (it won't break).

  P5044323

Even better?  She's shockingly affordable.  M's first response after perusing her shop? "She should start charging more!  I LOVE."  My necklace (and most others) can be had for $40.  Seriously, Mamas.  Gorgeous little baubles like these…all $40 or under:

    The silver bird bracelet is amazing.

    Wow! Her shop is spectacular…and while I’d settle for just about anything…that “ladder” necklace is pretty fabulous!

    I really love the brass bar necklace. And the onyx triangle one. And that double-layer green stone one! All gorgeous. Have added the shop to my etsy favs!

    I’m really torn between the red silk one and the onyx triangles. My son broke my necklace a few weeks ago and I haven’t had the chance to get it fixed. A new necklace would be a nice change!

    The geometric rectangle necklace and red silk necklace are amazing! LOVE.

    I love everything, especially the lapis statement necklace, but with a 7-week old son at home (and tey
    rying to get this breastfeeding and pumping-at-work thing down…for the second day back at work, gulp) I think I’d pick the cheetah bracelet!

    I love this LONNNNG miminal multi layered necklace: http://www.etsy.com/listing/59128388/long-minimal-necklace-with-multi-layered and these fringe earrings are awesome too http://www.etsy.com/listing/99728106/fringe-earrings-super-long-made-of-steel. The earrings would have to be for work and date night only, as I prefer to keep my lobes in one piece. Easier said than done, with a one year old.

    (Sorry not allowed on facebook at work… yikes!) By far my fave is the chevron arrow necklace.

  • Beth

    Choose just one? That’s rough – this stuff is wicked cool. I think I’d go for either the amethyst fringe necklace or the pyrite and teal stones. It would have to be for date night, though, since my toddler would think they were great teethers…

    I looooooove the crochet lace necklace! Gorgeous! :)

    (Not on Facebook) LOVE the chunky chain bracelet in vintage brass! Beautiful work. Realized I don’t even own a single bracelet — certainly need to remedy that!

    After looks at her page I realized I have one of her pieces already, gifted to me by my sister in law! Talk about special and unique….
    I’d love to add the quartz necklace to my collection, or even better, gift it to my SIL.

    I have an eye on the Peter Pan necklace actually!

    I’m a fan of the brass bar necklace, although I’m a bit smitten with the whistle too

  • Emy

    The long minimal necklace with multi layered chains looks like a tough necklace to stand up to the demands of my children! I think this would be one I would wear all the time, it is minimal and would help dress up my tops. Great prices!

  • Jennifer

    The whistle necklace for casual days and the lava and brass necklace for fancier days!

  • Alice

    That Peter pan necklace you have is really nice! I like the wistle one as well

  • Jill

    I love the brass bow necklace, but I think I’d go with the Peter Pan – can imagine so many ways to wear it!

    Ok, I think the long minimal necklace with multi-layered chains is a no brainer that would look great with so many things. That said, there is just something so adorably whimsical about the bow tie necklace (particularly in the beige color) that I just can’t resist.

    I think the Peter Pan collar necklace is a no-brainer. After you posted a pic wearing it the other day, I kept wondering where and how you always find the next coolest thing! So glad you shared! LOVE this gal’s shop!
