December 6, 2020 (updated January 17, 2023) — Written by

Welcome to Day 6 of The New Knew’s 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways! It’s another big day over here because we’re giving all the cuteness in the form of sustainable jewelry and hair accessories by none other than (Georgia’s own) Machete! A $400 value!

I’m so excited we connected with Machete this past year. I’ve been wearing their earrings forevs but this year we got a chance to explore their hair accessories and more—and I couldn’t be more smitten. 

Who is Machete?

Founder Jennifer J. Matchett was on a mission to create heirloom-quality accessories that also functioned as on-the-go everyday staples and I can tell you right now that she did just that. 

My first pair of Machete earrings were their large tortoise shell hoops that blew up after being featured in Vogue in 2017. Super classic and I’ve been wearing them for years now. 

But, besides being super cute, timeless and the quintessential definition of #fashion, Machete is also a thoughtful option for several reasons. 

Machete’s sustainability efforts 

👉First of all (!!) they are headquartered right here in my current hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.🤗

👉Jewelry and accessories are made from natural and renewable materials. Their acetate pieces are crafted from natural and renewable cellulose acetate and bio-acetate. And all metal pieces are made from recycled brass and ethically sourced silver and gold.  

👉Earring posts are made from hypoallergenic stainless steel, sterling silver, or solid gold.

👉All jewelry is stored and shipped in custom, eco-friendly EVA zip bags.

👉They even offer a $5 store credit when you recycle your pieces through Machete.

My favorite Machete pieces 

What I love most about Machete’s earrings is they are classic and timeless yet still find a way to ooze style. I have about 7 pairs of their earrings and I haven’t met one I don’t like yet. 

Although the tortoise shell earrings and accessories will never go out of style, this year I am particularly drawn to their metal collection. Silver is back in a big way and I love rotating between their .75 Perfect Hoops in silver and their 2” Perfect Hoops in silver.

I’m also obsessed with their hair accessories. From French hair pins to clips, claws and more, everything is super cute but mostly I keep going back because they are wicked strong and actually hold my hair. 

And, if you’ve been wanting to try a French hair pin, just go for it! Don’t be intimidated, they are actually really easy to use and they hold hair in place snugly. I have an acetate one but they also come in gold and silver too. 

And I don’t own any of these yet but I’m like drooling over their chunky eyewear chains, oversized link chain necklaces and bracelets. 

But those are just some of my faves. They also offer cute combs and sunglasses and smart watch bands…and…and…and…
