We know that during the winter months creating stylish outfits seems like afterthought. Our main concern is mostly staying warm and deciding if it’s okay to wear leggings, dresses and boots to work–everyday. But, it’s important to keep one’s sartorial spirit alive and to that end here are some great chunky handmade jewelry pieces (and one vintage design we love) from Etsy that are just perfect for the season.

For a true statement design, consider this chunky bangle. It’s made from Perspex acrylic, which is similar to Lucite, and features a gorgeous photo image of grey silhouetted winter tree branches.
