Dudelry (Man Jewelry)



Before we begin I want to announce the winner of my Giveaway. Congrats to spottedonetsy!!!! My daughter drew her name last night, and I'll be sending her earrings off very soon!!!!


I 've been making jewelry for women since 2002. Every show I work, some guy comes along and says "where's your guy stuff?' My response is always "I haven't done that yet." Secretly, knowing it's just not on my list of things to do.

I make a practice of giving teachers jewelry or bath and body products for the Holidays or gift-giving seasons. Once I had one man teacher I forgot to give a gift and he said "just make me something you would make for your husband." I walked away sad and ashamed because I had never made any jewelry for my husband, so I knew that teacher would never get a piece of man jewelry from me.

Well, recently I promised to make something for my husband. We got all the way to Michael's and we picked out some beads and twine. I pretended to be excited, but deep in my heart I feared I wouldn't ever get to it. I guess my husband must have been hip because he got home and got to work making pieces for himself. BTW- he's a designer. We actually own a Advertising and Design agency together and he is the main designer there, so ladies you might not want to try this at home your husband will probably laugh at you for suggesting he make jewelry instead of watching the game. Here's his manelry or dudelry, it's really great!





Here are some other pics of men who wear manerly:




Now I am aware that I have put two famous cheaters together, and I am not in the habit of promoting cheaters. However, I couldn't think of any other man jewelry wearers similar to what hubby made. Just know that I am still on Team Jen and Halle!!!!


Russell Simmons actually has a whole line of jewelry called green, it's a non-profit that sends money to the Diamond Empowerment Fund. If your husband wants to try some cool manelry at least he'll have a cool cover if the boys tease him.

That's wonderful! My husband used to be a jeweler and even he doesn't wear much "dudelry".

Your husband's bracelets look fabulous!

I dig men who wear jewlery like that. Its so soulful and that's never a bad thing to be. I think the bracelets are great... much better than the bling =).

Your husband did a great job. I thought Kimora was behind the bracelet - guess it is unisex. I want one of those raw diamonds. Oh to have disposable income. And by the way - I can make cakes for weddings and other functions using towels. I've just been focusing on diapers.
