You’ll recall that earlier this year we told you about our love for new local label Salty Fox jewelry, the brainchild of UC Davis grad and former Lela Rose intern Megan Stacy. And now we’re extra stoked to learn that the S.F. bauble brand has moved beyond its Etsy roots and launched an e-store filled to the brim with covetable, pyrite-centric jewels.
Debuting in sync with the label’s Aria Collection launch for summer ’12, the site also features the label’s first-ever slick photo shoot featuring a gorg, fiery-haired model (she’s from Bolinas and we’re obsessed) sporting the simple and stunning geometric pieces.
Take in some of our favorite looks after the jump, and — if you like what you see — be sure to leave a comment below telling us about what makes you feel like a fox. One lucky winner will walk away with the label’s wear-everywhere Sahara necklace. Good luck!

We have tons of respect for the crafty entrepreneurs at Etsy (especially after attempting several at-home D.I.Y. projects that have gone terribly—and oftentimes hilariously—awry). The website has helped the next big design stars grab some much-needed exposure, and happily for us, has provided major accessibility to what were once only flea-market and specialty store finds. It comes as no surprise that many of these artists call NYC home, running their successful Etsy shops out of apartments, on top of day jobs. To give you the best chic for your click, we’ve hand-selected (get it?) a few of our favorite NYC-based handmade and vintage shops from the Big App, with products ranging from tribal jewelry to letter-pressed cards. Though this merch might be your neighbors’, you don’t need to leave su casa to get your one-of-a-kind style fix. And with those chocolate cream pies at the Brooklyn Flea, our summer bodies are saying that’s a good thing.
