Paparazzi Jewelry Review

One of the things I love about blogging is making new friends that I probably never would have met if it weren’t for blogging since they don’t live near me. Michelle, from Someday Crafts, is one of those friends. She is a special education teacher turned stay at home Mom to three adorable kiddos and we became friends discussing my sweet Noah.

Michelle recently became a jewelry consultant for Paparazzi Jewelry as a way to earn some extra money for her family. Michelle sells the jewelry locally at jewelry parties, craft bazaars, and through her website, Jewelry for Five.

Michelle sent me three pieces of jewelry to give them a try.

I love the ribbon closure on this necklace because you can easily adjust the length of it. The only thing I don't like is that the brown isn't as of a dark brown as I'd thought it was going to be but it's still beautiful and I can wear it with many different things. The necklace also came with matching earrings.

I like that the flower clip has both an alligator clip and then a standard pin back on the back of it so I could clip it in my hair or on a bag or a coat or something; love the versatility of it.

I adore headbands but I will admit I was a little leery of ordering one because I could not try it on first and if a headband is even a smidge too tight I won’t wear it because then I just end up with a giant headache. But I’m happy to report that this headband seems to fit well and although I have only worn it once, it was for about 5 hours and I remained headache free!

When Michelle was first telling me about this jewelry line, she told me that every single piece of jewelry, headband, clips, etc. was only $5.00! You are probably thinking like I first did that it’s too good to be true, right? That because it’s so inexpensive it’s probably lacking in quality. Well, now that I have held several pieces in my hands, I can assure you that it is NOT lacking in quality. It’s the same type of jewelry I’ve bought at boutiques in the mall and paid triple the price for. It’s good stuff and would make a great Christmas gift for family, friends, co-workers, teachers, etc. Click below to go to the Jewelry for Five website and check out Michelle's awesome selection of jewelry and accessories.

Also, if you are looking for a way to supplement your income, becoming a consultant like Michelle did just might be the answer for you. Check out her website or email her at for more information.

Full Disclosure: I was given free jewelry in exchange for writing an honest review. All opinions are my own. 


  1. Glad you got to try on some free jewelry! Nick would absolutely KILL me if I bought any more jewelry, and none of my family & friends needs any right now, but I'll definitely keep it in mind! :)

  2. Thanks for the review. I'm glad you like it.
