As I browse through the gazillions of Etsy stores online, I find that most of them have a theme. Case in point: Bijoux Déjà vu. All of this designer’s creations seem to be geared for the wedding day but I’m finding things that would make nice statement jewellery for the everyday gal. I would totally rock the above necklace with an off shoulder top, jeans and some killer heels.
Bijoux Déjà vu first started selling handmade friendship bracelets in Vancouver. Having stopped for a while, she was encouraged by her friends to sell her pieces on Etsy. Currently based in Hong Kong, all items are handmade by her and she is planning on launching a second Etsy shop, Couture Precious, which is going to feature affordable unisex jewels with rock n’ roll edgy glamour theme.
