Besteam: Blue White Wear

I love this little shop.  The jewelry is unique and holds Asian tradition and a beautiful modern design.  Claire, the owner of “Blue & White Wear” has traveled around the world a bit. A matter of fact, although American born, Claire has spent 9 years in Bangkok, Thailand. Which, I’m sure has only deepened her love for the Chinese Blue and White beads she so loves to work with. 

Blue & White Porcelain Charm Bracelet

This bracelet is a perfect example of the traditional symbols Claire incorporates in your jewelry.  This bracelet is made with blue and white porcelain beads hand painted with the symbol for double happiness. There are five charms: a Buddha,fish for prosperity, porcelain double happiness, Chinese coin for wealth, and an elephant for good luck.

The Oriental Fan

Along with this Oriental Fan Necklace,  one of my favorite “Blue & White Wear” pieces of Jewelry. The necklace is a monochromatic antique gold/bronze necklace features a light weight oriental fan with Chinese characters. 

The Shoe Necklace

This one is just for fun. A glamorous golden shoe with rhinestones dangles from a gold-tone chain. The front of the shoe is covered in rhinestones while the back side is plain. The shoe measures 1 1/4 inches and the chain is 22 inches long. Isn't it cute!

If you would like to view “Blue & White Wear” whole collection to go “Blue & White Wear” on etsy.  You can also keep up with Claire on her blog or follow her on    twitter or Facebook
