Chatting about all things ChatterBlossom

This beautiful sunny Monday morning, I'm absolutely delighted to shine the spotlight on one of Chronically Vintage's newest blog sponsors: etsy shop ChatterBlossom.

Founded a little over a year ago, ChatterBlossom is helmed by Jamie Lee (pictured below), a wonderful lady with a serious passion for the past (her blog, of the same name, teams with plenty of vintage inspiration with a particular emphasis on fashion and accessories, including some of the stellar vintage pieces Jamie buys for her own wardrobe), and features a diverse selection of reasonably priced vintage, repurposed, and upcycled jewelry and accessories.

Jamie's pieces are understatedly gorgeous - very often focusing on one design component (buttons are a particular favourite of the designer), and rich in the kind of classic loveliness that helps them work as seamlessly in a vintage loving gal's wardrobe as they do the most cutting edge modern fashionista. Elegance and sweetness, never go out of style, and ChatterBlossom's offerings deliver both in spades.

A scroll through ChatterBlossom's listings turns up everything from darling hair bows to pendant necklaces, charming little button earrings to art deco inspired hair flowers, as well as a selection of rings and various other handmade treasures.

One of the things that appeals to me most about ChatterBlossom's products is that there is a certain sense of sophisticated serenity that runs through them. Many designs feature nature inspired elements, be they jewelry components or the real deal, such as leaves, flowers, acorns, feathers, and shells.

When speaking about what led her to launch her etsy shop, Jamie says, "I decided to start ChatterBlossom to have a way to travel along with people in their "magic" moments. The moments that memories are imprinted and carried along until the next person picks it up and tries to imagine how that life was lived." This heartfelt sentiment transmits as clear as a bell through the jewelry she designs and the spirit of her shop and blog.

ChatterBlossom's designs are one of a kind - each piece a unique, engaging original (Jamie assigns a name and story to each item she makes) that ensures you'll not find anyone else sporting the exact same gem of a creation you've picked up for Jamie's shop (where each item is clearly described, skillfully photographed, and hard not to fall in love with).

If you'd like to connect with ChatterBlossom elsewhere online as well, you can do so on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, plus Jamie's splendid blog.

It's a joy to welcome ChatterBlossom on board as a Chronically Vintage sponsor this month. Jamie's jewelry and accessories are precisely my style - rich in classic loveliness, vintage appropriate, and handmade (often using yesteryear and upcycled materials) - a trio that's as good as it gets in my books.

Be sure to stay tuned, we'll be giving away a gift certificate here for ChatterBlossom's etsy shop in the near future.
