    Feather Ring by Amy Fine Design, $48.00

     

    Float on from fall into winter with the adorb feather ring, and choose whether you’d like a black or brown base. Amy Fine Design was created with an obsession with jewelry designing that goes back 15 years, and Amy views color designs the same as being a kid in a candy shop!

     

    Wholeness, Love, and Happiness rings by AuH2O, $10.00, $12.00, $10.00

     

    Use these words of wisdom on your hands as a reminder to make every day a happy one full of love to balance the highs and lows.

    Catch attention with this unique, handmade ring that is made per order! New Jersey-based designer Danielle Petoukoff started making jewelry in 2008 and created 5one7 Design where she focuses on hammered brass celestial designs. You should check out her Instagram for her latest creations.

    Vintage Turquoise Ring byMaren Dunn Studio, $75.00 

     

    Jazz and class up any outfit with this stunning ring, featuring amethyst and turquoise, and a vintage silver base believed to be from the 70’s.

    Cin Ring by Mary Gallagher, $185.00

     

    Having pretty jewelry is one thing, and having a ring that you take part in the design by choosing all the components you’d like is another. You choose your material and stone from choices like garnet, blue moon quartz, and more. Mary Gallagher found inspiration from New England beauty and history, and enjoys nature with its symmetry decay: there’s something graceful about a fallen bird or a receding coastline. Mary’s influence of symbolism religion can be found in her creations, and all pieces are made right in Brooklyn!

     

    Ring 70 byFleurs Jolie, $35.00

    Allow this ring to do all the talking for you, because what speaks louder than Swarovski rhinestones on a handcrafted rose?! Fleurs Jolie recognizes that everyone has something special about themselves, and works to create jewelry that emphasizes that. Inspiration is found in sunsets, and her design style is making button jewelry from the 1930’s-50’s. For those that inquire about these rings, all floral jewelry has been made with vintage acetate flowers that were imported from Japan during the '50s!

     Check out these vendors and countless more at Bust's Annual Holiday Craftacular @ Brooklyn Expo Center! Tickets are available online, make sure to see which of the 100s of Creative Living classes being offered interest you the most, and get ready to get down to a female-fronted music festival!

  • VINTAGE 9e176

    Want to reduce your carbon footprint, support women-owned businesses, and look hella fierce, besides? Shop feminist vintage. Because there’s nothing like putting your money behind your ideologies and getting a bitchin’ outfit while you’re at it. Here are three of our favorite online vintage shops with a conscience—each run by fearless, feminist treasure-hunters. 

    Ten of Cups Vintage 
    tenofcupsvintage.com

    tenofcups d4ba8Vintage 1970s Button-Up, $20.80

    Specializing in affordable, size-inclusive fashion, New Orleans-based Ten of Cups is stocked with fun and quirky picks from across the decades by founders (and life partners) Jade Taylor and Ian Kadis. Think brightly colored muumuus, cool band tees, and funky printed sweatshirts. Nothing in the shop is categorized by gender and everything is cleansed with sage, palo santo, or essential oil mists. (A heads up for shoppers with serious animal allergies, they do have two cats.) 

     

    Lost Girls Vintage

    lostgirls 7ac201990s Silver Bandeau Gown, $78

    Started in a Winnebago by friends Sarah Azzouzi and Kyla Embrey, Lost Girls is about more than vintage clothes—it’s about “breaking molds,” and living “an unapologetically fearless life of fun and adventure” in a big-ass van that dudes constantly assume Azzouzi and Embrey don’t know how to maneuver (they do). From their Etsy site, pop-up shops around the U.S., the Chicago community shop Humboldt House, this twosome sells everything from Victorian-era garments to ’90s fashion in sizes 00 to 18. 

     

    Stitch Bitch Vintage

    stitchbitch 039411970s Printed Shirt, $19.99

    Every item from Brooklyn-based Stitch Bitch Vintage, founded by Ashley Markle, is dedicated to an influential woman—like the beautifully embroidered black kimono dedicated to 18th century Chinese astronomer, mathematician, and poet Wang Zhenyi, or the striped denim flares dedicated to Gloria Steinem. Each piece comes with a hand-drawn illustration and a few facts about the icon it invokes, to make sure the wearer feels as awesome as “the badass bitches” who came before her.
