Attending a music festival is a chance to express your bohemian spirit in a vivacious environment charged with creative energy. Here at Heirloom Finds, we’re excited to offer a wide selection of new boho styles, from glamorous fringe pendant necklaces to seed bead bracelets to midi rings that will delight your inner indie fashionista. Combine any of these beauties with a flower crown, sunnies and your favorite cutoffs, and you’re already well on your way to becoming a fabulous festival fashion plate.

To capture the bohemian spirit of the Southwest, you cannot go wrong with styling sterling and turquoise.

Finding new styles of hippie chic jewelry is of course nothing short of thrilling, but scoring vintage pieces to rock with your festival couture authentically connects you with an undeniably vibrant past. Luckily for you, we’ve rolled out an amazing collection of vintage Southwestern Native American jewelry that captures the region’s inspiring beauty and the retro vibe of 1970’s freewheeling fashion.

Pile on eye-catching turquoise and coral necklaces, then add a sterling snake arm cuff!

Southwestern sterling silver mined from the earth combined with fiery red coral and turquoise stones the color of the sea and sky gives you an elemental edge you simply cannot find elsewhere. Imagine multiple retro sterling necklaces tucked beneath loose Janis Joplin hair. Visualize a mountain of turquoise bracelets stacked into an arm party every festival crowd member will envy. Fantastic, yes?

Bring the festival to your digits with some vintage Southwestern sterling rings.

And the rings! Have you ever been in a Western style trading post and found yourself ogling the mélange of inlaid turquoise, coral, mother of pearl, abalone and jet found in the ring display cases? Maximize your hippie cred this festival season by stacking some or several vintage sterling rings on your digits. You won’t regret their dazzling effect!

Festival Friendly Fashion-SXSW ’14 Edition

Festival Season is officially upon us with South By Southwest’s kick-off today, and that is music to our ears!  We are so ready to break out the warm weather clothes, ditch the snow boots, and slip on our leather fringe sandals.  Of course the music is incredible, and the lineups are what draw the crowds, but we think festival fashion is a huge part of what makes music festivals so fun!  The 2014 festival season is going to be all about colorful, easy breezy fashion accessories.  So let’s check out some of our favorite SXSW inspired looks.

Ok, let’s face it, SXSW can be a difficult one to dress. Because it can be hotter than you-know-what during the day, but the Austin temps can drop pretty low in the evening. Which means that perfectly stacked and layered arm party you designed will surely be covered up by nightfall.  Here at Heirloom Finds, we think the first and most important accessory to focus on in your SXSW fashion collection is earrings!  They will be seen no matter what outfit you choose, so go big, go bold, or go home.  We are talking oversized, fringed duster, topaz crystal studded ear décor.

Runner up to earrings are, ding, ding, ding, RINGS!  This year is all about delicate stacking rings.  Simple gold rings stacked together in the most perfect way to make an effortlessly styled look.  A styled, perfect look is as effortless as stacking together a few gold rings. Mix a matte gold ring with one that’s detailed and polished like the adjustable arrow ring below. For an extra pop of eye-catching beauty, add a pave crystal ring into the mix.

Soft leather sliced cuff bracelets are making a strong comeback, but in even bolder and brighter colors than before.  These snap-on bracelets are perfect for SXSW because they can breathe.  No one wants a sweaty mess of an arm stack to fiddle with during the most perfect live set. These lightweight leather wrap bracelets are already layered, and you just snap them on, no need to squeeze bangle after bangle onto your arm this year!   We consider them the perfect “trendy, but festival friendly” jewelry pick.
