Affordable Jewellery – I like it.


Get a load of that pretty button!  It belongs to my latest advertiser Adrienne who runs an Etsy shop where she sells her equally pretty jewellery.  (I’m partial to the Vampire Bite necklace! )Please help me in welcoming Adrienne to The Art of Doing Stuff advertising family!  That means go and click on her site to see what she has to offer.  If you like something buy it.

And here’s added incentive!  Adrienne has offered 20% off anything for all The Art of Doing Stuff readers!  That’d be YOU.  Just enter the promo code DOINGSTUFF at checkout.

This brings The Art of Doing Stuff Advertising family up to 2 members.  Like with any small family I spoil my children so they are both getting free advertising until the end of the month.  Gratis.  ‘Cause I’m spoiling my children.  Anyone who commits to advertising on The Art of Doing Stuff will get from now until the end of January for FREE!  So the quicker you act, the more free advertising you’ll get.

In honour of Adrienne and her pretty jewellery I thought for this final post of the week I’d share with you some of my jewellery.  Just for fun. And just the cheap stuff.   Don’t need any of you trying to break in here to get at my Cartier ankle bracelet.

I have a real affinity for costume jewellery, as the ladies who lunch call it.  Everything you see here was $20 or less.

Hammered Silver Ring

$10 (on sale) at a housewares store!

Ring made from Typewriter Key

$9 from Etsy shop

Plastic Blue Bracelet

Aldo ($10)

I like the sound it makes when I wear it.  It kindda clinks.

Bendable Neckace

Art Gallery $20

I’ve worn this necklace as either a bracelet or necklace every other day for the past 2 years.

I love it.

I love it a lot.

Sometimes I even stick on my coffee table like a piece of art.

Shell Ring

Joelle’s, Burlington ($10)


Now you could spend a lot more money on jewellery, but if you keep it cheap ladies … you’ll also be able to afford  lunch.

Have a great weekend!  I’ll see you Monday.



  1. @adrienne Glad to be sharing Karen’s blog-sidebar-space with such fine company! πŸ™‚ I’ll pop by your site right now to say hi.

  2. Crysta says:

    Just bought fabulously adorable turquoise earrings. How dare you add more frivolous money-spending into my life. πŸ™‚

  3. Jenn says:

    Ahem… Karen. Isn’t that last ring a bit… “man -in-the-boat”-esque? Hee hee.

    • Karen says:

      Jenn – That is not something I had thought of! I had well … No. Oh my. I’m gonna have to go take another look at it. The ring I mean. ~ karen

      • christina says:

        oh, dear… I don’t know what that means!! “man-in-the-boat”? please help!
        & Karen- since you are raffling off your jewelry, I reallllly love the silver cuff that has words stamped on it? (saw it in a post) What does that say & could I please have it? <3

        • Shauna Rudy says:

          Christina, to put it delicately, “the man in the boat” refers to the female anatomy. Southern region.

  4. KarenB says:

    I seldon wear jewellery but I HAD to have the monocular necklace. I can totally justify buying it. It is beautiful and ever-so functional. I will be using it to help me solve any mysteries that arise in the community! Clearly I NEEDED it.

  5. Liz S. says:

    I am trying to decide which lace necklace I want to purchase. I have to be really dressy and professional at work. I think the lace necklaces are dressy but unique and not something I’ll see on someone else. Now to decide what I want…

  6. Adrienne Audrey says:

    Hey Karen,
    Glad to be part of the family!
    Thanks to everyone who checked out my shop and for your kind words πŸ™‚

  7. Elise says:

    My shopping cart is growing by the minute! I love all of this stuff. Karen, maybe seeing all your reader’s comments will be an incentive for future advertisers to hop on board! We trust the All-Mighty-Karen =)

    • Karen says:

      Elise! Hah! Well thank you very much. And I’m sure my advertisers thank you. πŸ™‚ What I really need are more readers. I get around 180,000 views a month but I’d like to up that a bit. Gonna have to work on that. In all my free time. πŸ™‚ ~ karen

  8. Shauna Rudy says:

    Hi Karen,
    My mom has one of those bendable necklaces, but she’s never been able to make it look as good as the salesperson did when selling her on it. It looks more like a snake writhing in torture. I’d love to see a couple of pics of how you wear it, being as you’re all “stylish” and stuff.
    On an unrelated note, is the W network a Canadian thing? I did a Tivo search for your show, unsuccessfully. Nothing on YouTube either. Alas.

  9. Carol says:

    I am CRAZY for those vintage monocle pendants! A gorgeous accessory but so functional too – perfeclty hand for me to read drawings. I’m having a hard time deciding which one to buy,,,so I may have to get two.

  10. Anemone says:

    I Love that message in a bottle necklace that they are carrying…only one left…hmmmmm

  11. Melissa Curran says:

    Those items are lovely!

  12. there’s nothing more affordable than FREE. I’m doing a jewelry giveaway this week on my blog. So, if you want to up your style without spending anything pop over and enter.


  13. Terri says:

    Plus, if you lose cheap jewelry, it isn’t the end of the world. πŸ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Terri – Exactly! Although if I ever lost that hammered silver ring I might cry. Just a tiny tear or two … but still. ~ karen

  14. Kelly Kline says:

    I am loving the Etsy site!!! I’ve been there looking for the last hour!! Thanks for sharing!!

    • Karen says:

      Kelly! Etsy will suck you in, that’s for sure! Tara Gilchrist who has an Etsy button to the right there somewhere has beautiful jewellery. I love the big rectangular ring! – karen
