Tassel and Fringe

I love earrings. It will be something I really miss in this year of no shopping. I like to have new earrings all the time. A different pair for each outfit really. I guess this addiction has left me with some limitations in my shopping choices because although there are a lot of incredible jewelers in the province there are not a lot whose work I could afford on an ongoing basis. So I was extremely pleased to find Rita Van Tassel’s work in Love, Me Boutique last summer. I got a great pair of bright orange and teal earrings for a perfect $24. I realized later that Rita and I had gone to school together on the South Shore. We met again at the Crafter’s Market in December where I purchased another pair (or 2) of her dangly goods. They are my favorites and I will not tire of them any time soon. Rita’s work is totally stylish, playful, locally made and sustainably sourced. Almost all of her materials are off cuts too small for other projects but perfect for you and your feathery, fringy fancies. You can find her on Etsy at  http://www.etsy.com/shop/RitaVanTassel
