Vanessa Ægirsdóttir: Beautiful Fur Jewelry
Vanessa Ægirsdóttir opened the doors of her Whitehorse shop in 2018. I noticed her beautifully crafted fur jewelry a year or so later when we followed each other on Instagram. My husband and I received a few of her pieces as wedding gifts and I was instantly smitten. Vanessa creates beautiful jewelry using Yukon furs and copper and silver.
“It is important that I use furs that are sourced from Indigenous traplines in the Yukon so that you can be assured that every fur is traceable and ethically harvested.”
If you’d like to learn more about the furs she uses, she explains it in some detail on her website linked here.
Muskrat Copper Poms
Vanessa reached out to me a few months ago and told me she’d like to give me a pair of her earrings to review! I was so excited because I love supporting local small businesses, especially in these uncertain times. I decided on the Muskrat Copper Poms and they are just gorgeous! The colours of the fur remind me of my cat. They are a statement piece and look great with all my gold jewelry.
I used to think that fur was just for special occasions, but I’ve styled these earrings with several different looks. They are quite versatile and make a statement and elevate any outfit. They’re very light so they’re not going to irritate your ears. The muskrat fur is luxuriously soft; I love the feel of the earrings brushing against my neck. I think they are the perfect statement piece to wear in the fall and winter. They are made with high quality materials and with attention to detail so the pieces will stand the test of time and be in my jewelry collection for years to come.
I’ve styled the earrings in three different ways, scroll down for the photos so you can see how versatile fur jewelry really is!
Fur Jewelry for the Weekend
I’ve styled the earrings here with black pants, a simple top, and my jean jacket for running errands, meeting friends for brunch, or going out for a casual dinner.
Throw on a blazer over black pants and a top and you’re ready for a day at your 9-5! I love the statement these earrings make with a simple outfit.
Here I’ve styled the earrings with a black jumpsuit, though they would work just as well with a black dress, my leather jacket, and black sling backs for a night on the town. The all black outfit really makes the earrings pop!
Tell me, which look is your favourite?
I’ve got my eye on a few of the other pieces from Vanessa’s current collection, including:
If you’re looking for a unique gift for someone in your life, a piece of the fur jewelry would be a lovely choice. Vanessa also makes fur cufflinks!
