Figs & Ginger

We like to think that we know a lot about what is going on in the indie design world - and have a good handle on the handmades found at the New York Gift Fair (when we can get away from the booth), renegade, etsy and so on. But we were totally taken aback when stopping in one of our favorite local Chicago shops, Glam to Go, and finding the lovely work of Figs & Ginger.

From the outset, we loved the designs - not even knowing how adorable and thoughtful the folks behind the even more adorable name were! The husband and wife team describe Figs & Ginger as 'making Eco-Friendly sterling jewelry designed to complement that sexy black dress or simply spice up your favorite ripped jeans. Each piece made by hand and is inspired by the simple beauty found in forests, both imaginary & real.' And we agree - tried and tested...for sure!

We chose the bunny necklace. You wouldn't believe all the compliments...

What's more is that they are eco-friendly. Click on vimeo image below to check out an Earth Day giveaway video they did earlier this year (contest is closed), and you can visit their website for a whole section on their 'green values'!

If you have a shop, or are just looking to shop for yourself - be sure to check out Figs & Ginger.
