Looking for some new trinkets and accessories? Then check out these cute animal-inspired jewelry picks and support small shops worldwide.
Tiny Lovers’ (NZ) designer and shop owner Bebay focuses on creating conscious jewelry that reflects happiness. Her Endangered Animals Collection features many cutely designed animals in the form of sterling silver jewelry that won’t fail to bring a smile to your face. (I love the happy orangutan one myself!)
Suzanne’s shop, BittyThingsandBeasts (CA), is filled with an assortment of uniquely handmade clay pieces—including this lovely betta fish seaglass pendant featuring a bright orange betta amidst soft ocean colors, seaglass, and seagrass. Aside from jewelry, she also makes figurines of other animals, and even dragons and cryptids.
Charm bracelets are always cute and nostalgic, and this animal charm bracelet from Flat Bonnie (US) features two bunnies (up and lop-eared), a dog, a cat, and a guinea pig. It’s nice to know that the shop helps raise awareness about bunnies that can be adopted from shelters and rescue centers. A share of the shop’s monthly profits is also donated to animal rescue organizations.
CutePorcelana (CL) makes cute clay accessories and specializes in custom jewelry for all kinds of pets. This adjustable custom ferret bracelet is adorable through and through, and I can imagine it’ll bring a smile to a ferret parent’s face whenever they check the time!
Lastly, itsjmade (AU) offers over 100(!) pairs of earrings that are made, drawn, and painted by hand. They’re also lightweight, water-resistant, and are made of plastic and stainless steel. These crocodile (or alligator) mini earrings in particular are super cute and instantly caught my eye.
Andy (AKA Arlandyia) lives in Manila with her fiancé and works as a content writer, illustrator, and English teacher to fund her love for kawaii and food for their cat, Xiao. In her free time, she plays video games, goes café-hopping, and takes a few short naps.
