Welcome to another C Loves post! I’m back after having a few weeks off volunteering in Vietnam – it was amazing helping those less fortunate and exploring a new country…but we’ll get to that in another post (promise!). For now, I wanted to share another awesome and totally unique brand with you, called Albert & Co.
Albert & Co is a store on Etsy specialising in handmade jewellery, particularly fashionable yet understated earrings. What I love about the earrings is that they are fun, feminine and unique without being ridiculously expensive. In fact, the earrings retail on Etsy between $8 – $18 AUD. So, they clearly won’t break the bank, but will allow you to have the most fashion-forward lobes in the room hahah!
I initially found out about Albert & Co via Instagram, after seeing a photo of earrings that they had posted. I instantly fell in love with the green tassel earrings (check them out below) and had to check out what other cool and interesting earrings they sold. Once I saw the @albertandcoaus Instagram page, I was obsessed with the brand and reached out to the owner, Emily to learn more about her business.
When asked about the inception of her business, Emily stated that ‘Making tassel and feather earrings was something I originally did just for me. Friends, family and colleagues started asking for their own, so it seemed logical to branch out to Etsy. Albert & Co is my side hustle at the moment. I have a full time job, husband and two-year old son, Albert. [Making earrings] is satisfying my creative cravings.’
After scoping out the Albert & Co store on Etsy, I got two pairs of earrings – the green tassels and the white petal earrings. I totally couldn’t resist the petal earrings (pictured below), as they reminded me of a beautiful bouquet of flowers – I mean, how cute are they?!
Being a store on Etsy, the payment channel for Albert & Co is completely secure and you can pay using credit card, PayPal, or Etsy credits/gift cards – woohoo! Oh and if you’re wondering about speed of delivery and service within Australia, I can honestly say that it was pretty quick – shipping only takes 5-7 business days.
