I love purchasing street or handcrafted jewelry and living in New York City I always have the opportunity to do so (probably more opportunities than I need). Whether I am on 125th Street in Harlem or hanging out in Union Square downtown I am always tempted to by one more pair of earrings or another funky ring, see some of my finds below:
Various pieces that were gifted or brought from vendors on 125th Street in Harlem. The cuff is from Venus Visuals.
