A Macha Made in Heaven

I've recently become besotted with Macha, a London-based jewelry line. Irish-born designer Bernice Kelly's rough-meets-delicate pieces are as gorgeous as they are whimsical. The line is sold online through Etsy, so stateside admirers can get their fix, and there's also a second Etsy shop called The BeSide (clever, no?) that shills first samples and test pieces.

Many of the pieces are priced a bit out of range for me, but I'm seriously considering splurging on one of the little treasures below:

I love that the Faithful Ring features rough-hewn metals where one would expect precious stones. The style actually reminds me a bit of my friend Charlotte's engagement ring. $710.

I love these layered Snake Bone Necklaces, $190 each. Available in silver, yellow, or rose gold.

There's also a delicate, unisex Snake Bone Ring in sterling silver. You can choose between a polished or oxidized finish. $95.

Yellow and rose gold options are available for a bit more. $160.

The mixture of matte and shiny surfaces calls to mind a dirty chandelier. G Lowe Earrings, $250.
