Milky Coral Necklace ~ Madeline Ellis
As a girl on a budget, I always get a burst of excitement when I find an artist that not only makes charming pieces, but also offers them at an affordable price. Madeline Ellis, the creator behind the winsome jewelry collection, Mimosa By m.e., embodies exactly those qualities to great success. Mimosa By m.e. produces delightfully sunny, ceramic jewelry that is hand-carved, hand painted, and kiln-fired by Madeline. The pieces are so chipper they exude springtime even on the frostiest day. Plus, buying them won't burn a hole in your pocket!

Madeline's entire shop is one that I would love to fill my jewelry box. The Milky Coral Necklace up top is a fun nod to summers on the beach without harming any actual wildlife. Plus, if you spend the warmer months among cement and skyscrapers (as I do), then it's a small investment that will bring the ocean waters to you. Think of how beautiful it would look paired with a strapless summer dress! Similarly, the cheerful Dandy Dandelions Stud Earrings above will give even the most serious office attire a dose of a warmth.

Creating stud-sized earrings that provide interest and allure is a tough thing. However, Mimosa By m.e.'s are so brilliant their personality outshines their size. Madeline has a number of faceted earrings that are simple enough to be easily coordinated, but spirited enough to catch the eye. The Gold Faceted Stud Earrings above are actually glazed in 24k gold giving them a glamourous shine. However, if you desire a slightly different flair, then one of Madeline's many, brightly colored faceted studs below might do trick. She captures color so stunningly!

The best part about Mimosa By m.e. is that in addition to creating lovable jewelry, Madeline donates 10% of all quarterly earnings to Cambodia Children's Sanctuary. Thus, any purchase you make will not only feel like a sweet gift to yourself, but also a thoughtful donation to someone in need. That's a victory for all!
