Minimalist: A style that uses pared-down design elements. The artist strips everything down to its essential quality, to achieve simplicity. The pursuit of the basic essence of a piece, by rediscovering the valuable qualities in simple and common materials.
When it comes to accessorizing, sometimes less is more. Minimalist jewelry happens to be trending right now, and you can design some killer pieces if you like this style. Leonardo da Vinci said "Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication." It's the natural beauty of minimalism and the lack of clutter.
Dainty rings, necklaces, bracelets, and body chains have been all over lately. You can see them ‘modeled’ by popular bloggers and buy them in trendy and high-end department stores. And you can make them yourself with a little attention to design and a delicate and steady hand.
For some serious inspiration from great minimalistic artisans we’ve found on Etsy, check out these items shown here -- from top to bottom.
A delicate diamond necklace from an artisan named Maya Rolc Majericic -- a jewelry designer and owner of the minimalvs, capucinne, threelayers, and bibicco shops on Etsy. All her items are handmade from start to finish, in a studio in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
From Kurafuchi (Sarah, who designs and handcrafts all her Etsy items in Paris, Ile-de-France), we have a delicate bracelet, simple rose gold with tiny multicolored beads.
And finally from Tocco Di Lustro in Zagreb, Croatia, (another Etsy shop) we found these sweet gold-filled dangle earrings.
