shop small / gage huntley
in the 5 years that i’ve been blogging, i’ve connected with so many talented, admirable women – many of whom have started small businesses, all of whom hustle every day to support themselves or their families. from photography and crafts to selling vintage clothing or handmade jewelry – owning a small (online) business is a lot of work… work that requires patience and perseverance… work that requires support from friends and loyal customers. i may not always have the financial means to support their endeavors, but as a blogger i can certainly be a resource to my readers. that’s why i’ve started this new feature… i think it’s important to celebrate and share the small businesses that i love and the kick-ass women behind them. my hope is that you learn to love and support them, too!
01 / amanda dale of gage huntley
it’s no secret how much i love gage huntley jewelry – i’ve hosted several giveaways and own a shit ton of pieces from amanda’s collection. what i love most about her jewelry is that it’s so versatile! i can mix, match and layer every piece for a look that’s unique to my own personal style. also, her items are reasonably priced and make great gifts ideas! i’ve watched amanda grow her business over the last several months and i’m so impressed with her hustle. through instagram alone, she has managed to reach so many people and other small businesses. as a result, her business is booming!
short bio / background
I’m Amanda Dale, designer and owner of Gage Huntley – an eclectic collection of handmade jewelry and home goods. I started Gage Huntley, named after my son, after working 10 plus years in real estate. It was time for a change! I have always been creative with jewelry and wanted to bring affordable handmade jewelry and accessories to people worldwide. With Gage Huntley, I have been able to do just that.
from business to style, who/what inspires you the most?
I will forever be inspired by Rachel Zoe in both business and fashion. The woman has it all! The boho vibe really inspires me. It is effortless and can be dressed up or down.
favorite pieces in your collection
My favorite pieces in the collection are the stamped bar necklace, the stamped cuffs, the chunky chain drop quartz necklace and the coral ball chain necklace. I could add 5 or 6 more pieces, but I’ll stop there. I really don’t make any pieces that I wouldn’t wear myself.
Don’t be afraid of mixing metals and… layer it up! Don’t be afraid of stacking up the bracelets, necklaces and rings. Let that be the first thing people see… your style! In the words of Rachel Zoe – “style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.”
