When Ashley Smith isn't putting in a solid day's work at a San Francisco salon, she's at home toiling away on her newest venture, Little Golden Wings.

She started designing clothing as a creative outlet outside of her work, but it started to take up too much time and space. Instead of giving up altogether, Ashley rechanneled her efforts into making jewelry. She finds inspiration in antiques and vintage pieces, overgrown gardens, and "the things around us that glow and sparkle." Her goal is to recreate a nostalgic feeling in each piece, and by my judgment, she succeeds.

Little Golden Wings Jewelry runs $48 to $68 and is available at Etsy.com.
