In the Urban Dictionary, I found this fascinating description of the word "funky" as it comes to style: 

"Funky can be a mixture of thrift store and name brand, lace and leather, a simple gold bracelet and a huge plastic pink one, matching or unmatching, a ton of jewelry or none, classy and trashy. Being funky is about taking risks, and not being afraid to get a stare or two from people who wish they could be as funky as you . . . funky is never about boring."

I love that definition!  It was with that in mind, I decided to curate a collection of "Fun and Funky Handmade Jewelry" . . . jewelry will never be boring.  Here are some of the pieces from the collection:

Tribal style earrings with Peruvian ceramic beads, wood beads, suede cord and copper handmade by Mary of PrettyGonzo

Rust red and orange tumbled Colorado stones on a copper ball chain by Pamela of PebblesatmyFeet 

Long blue turquoise, sodalite and gold handmade Bohemian hoop earrings by Chris of GildedOwlJewelry

Sunflower yellow crystals, brown riverstone and green leather double wrap boho bracelet handmade by Kat of KatsAllThat

Curved mother of pearl fans, faceted smokey quartz and copper handmade earrings by Zoraida of zoraida

Two strand Bollywood style resin and coral beaded pendant necklace handmade by Anna of CraftsofthePast

Adjustable coral, turquoise and sterling silver wide cigar band ring handmade by Lynda of WestWindCreations

Faceted black onyx, turquoise and Swarovski crystals boho style hoop earrings handmade by Catherine of ShadowDogDesigns

I think the jewelry selected here shows a wide range of lovely fun and funky jewelry.  Again, here's a link to the collection:  Fun and Funky Handmade Jewelry  -  which by the way, was the ArtFire Daily Email collection yesterday!  Yay!   Congrats to everyone included!

Another wonderful blog post, Catherine! Love your selection of funky beauties and am honored to have my earrings included with them. :) Will be sharing. Le Gonze sends some funky virtual yummies to Le Moosie.

These pieces certainly are fun and funky! I think that the last three could be worn together - the necklace from Anna, the ring from Lynda, and the earrings from Catherine. What do you think? :)
