.friday finds: shop of the month.



I have been pretty antsy to share this loverly shop with ya'll. When I first found Charming by Aqsa on Etsy, I started "favoriting" one item after the other and finally decided to forget it and just "favorite" the shop. There are some beautiful pieces in here! (That middle piece is on it's way to my front door. :) ) One extra feature I love about this shop is that the length of the necklaces can be customized. No more getting a necklace too short or too long! Yay! 

So, seriously...go check this shop out! Today Aqsa is offering my readers 10% off anything in her shop so be sure to take advantage of that! Just enter the code writersblock at checkout!

Thanks for being a part of Friday Finds, Aqsa!

1) What style is your shop?
A touch of elegance and loveliness for every day wear is all I strive for. My number one obsession is color, so if I can make a subtle piece of jewelry with pleasantly surprising bright, bold colors thrown in, I'm a happy girl. I think it's the South Asian in me. I grew up on Bollywood movies, which pretty much represents every color of the rainbow, so a lot of my inspiration comes from that. 

2) What's your favorite item in your shop?
 I'm a sucker for jewels, so anything with rhinestones--especially my emerald pieces! Earrings are my favorite accessory though, so take your pick of any of those.

3) What inspired the name Charming by Aqsa?
My own name is Aqsa, which is an Arabic word for "great distance/far away", just like my shop! I guess I owe thanks to my parents. :)

  1. when I last ordered from this shop, I was able to request both a different style of hooks for my earrings and a different type of stone for its pendant. the neat thing about this jeweler is that they can customize things for you. I also like that they change their inventory with different seasons/occasions--it's perfect if you want to get a gift for halloween, or christmas. Some of the items are really humorous too :)
