For the love of pyrite

If you haven’t noticed (and I’m sure you have) pyrite is everywhere and for good reason. Pyrite, also known as “fools gold” has a rough, organic charm that’s incredibly versatile. With so many amazing handmade options, how does one choose?

amazing! i love this kind of smart jewls although I personally create very strong one! 😀


I adore fools gold! (you can tell from my blog for sure)
I love all this natural, rough stone jewelry that’s popular, it’s so beautiful.


I love jewellery that looks natural and is made of natural, raw, strong materials! The rings are my highlight!


Love love pyrite & how it’s so complete in the way they shine. I think my fave is that faceted peruvian necklace!

I really like the pebbly earrings the one at the bottom in the middle. It looks really pretty. I love the ring which looks like the stuff that dentists have on their hand when they put filling in your mouth (back in the old day) but I don’t think I’m hip enough to rock that on my hands!


Totally awesome finds! I actually like the color of pyrite more than gold. The color is a bit more subtle. As it is nice to compliments on the jewelry I am wearing – I am looking for the “hey, look at that bling” response. I think this would be a nice balance!

Have a super day – Brandi
