I actually make my own beaded jewelry, and I think shopping on Etsy is lots of fun! I have no problem with wearing unbranded jewelry. I like what I like, andnot because of a designer label. If I own a designer piece of jewelry, it is usually because it is unique to that brand, like the Love bracelet.
I just don't like to wear cheap metals, I prefer sterling silver and real gold. Other than that, I will wear whatever appeals to me!
