About

Style Inspired by a City

Named after the city that stole my heart, Chicagolandia Jewelry is a blend of urban style and ecofriendly natural elements, with a hint of gypsy traveling spirit. Living near the iconic Windy City, I have long been inspired by the curious blend of industry and nature, sweeping vistas and towering skyscrapers, bustling city streets and peaceful expanses of green. With my love of jewelry and an eco-conscious mindset, I opened this shop.

Materials Make a Difference

I have a modern sense of style that truly embraces natural elements, clean lines, and the occasional classic print. I am hopelessly drawn to mother of pearl shell beads for their unique shine, their vast array of sizes, hues, cuts, and the spirit of the open sea. Wood beads, gemstones, and a variety of pearls add so much texture and depth, the ideas flow effortlessly from the gifts offered to us from Mother Nature, the ultimate artist.

Most department store fashion jewelry is made with plastic which in the jewelry world, plastic goes by the names of acrylic, lucite, or resin - and all of which use petroleum to produce. Knowing that the manufacture and disposal of plastic is harmful to our planet, I refrain from using it in my work. Instead, I use only high quality glass from the Czech Republic, India, and Italy, sustainable wood beads, natural and dyed shell beads, pearls, metal, lampwork glass beads crafted from artisans across the globe, and gemstone beads for a collection of timeless creations that are truly one of a kind.

Why did I open an Etsy shop?

Simple. I believe that fashion should be affordable and I create quality at a fair price. All the jewelry pieces you'll find in my shop are priced under $100 and some items are even less than $10.

When you purchase from Chicagolandia Jewelry, you are buying a one of a kind pair of earrings, made with wonderful natural elements and these earrings are modern, classic, and are a great way to add a classic piece to your wardrobe, find something that is just your style, have a design custom made for you, or just keep you on trend.

I believe in being your own woman and embracing your natural style - whether you are bohemian chic, a corporate powerhouse, haute couture, a fitness fanatic, a bride-to-be, or just a jeans and tee-shirt kind of gal - you will find something here to fit exactly your idea of style.

Want some great deals on handmade, unique, and one of a kind jewelry? For every 10 items you purchase in 6 months, you'll receive a coupon code at checkout for 40% off a single transaction. Each coupon code is unique, one time use only, and expires 30 days from date issued. Items from the SALE section or custom orders do not count towards the ten items needed to generate the coupon. 40% off orders can only be shipped to 1 single address and 1 coupon/transaction.

Every single item in this shop is made in the Midwest and is truly one of a kind.
