Have you ever wondered what pure silver looks like before it is heated, melted down, mixed and poored into was moulds? Check out these pretty tear drop "bubbles". I am tempted to make irregular-shaped studs from them.
A friend of mine lost the father of her child many years ago. This man used to give her heart shaped rocks. Since he passed, she continues to find heart shaped rocks wherever she goes. She sent me this picture and it made me smile knowing how, even after death, we remember those we loved in our own special way.
Summer is over and that means that the new Fall Collection is here. So what can you expect? Well, after working closely with artisans from Canada, Mexico and Thailand, we couldn't help but be inspired by the gold and rose gold this season. We will always love silver but adding a touch of gold warms up an outfit, adds a bit of edge and mixes it up a bit.
Gone are the days of an allegiance to one metal.
Gone are the days when your belt had to match your shoes, when whites were only worn in the summer and you were either a "silver girl" or a "gold girl".
As sales of our line of personalized, meaningful gold and silver jewelry has grown, people have asked me time and time again: “Why don’t you use an engraving machine?”
I admit. An engraving machine with standardized words would make my business model easier. It would allow each pendant to look identical to what is pictured online. It would eliminate the huge pile of ruined silver that results when we are rushing or distracted. It would speed up the production process and take me out of the daily hand-stamping mix. It would free up my time.
Our fall collection is here. It comes with a palate of mixed metals and both satin and shinny finish.
Like hand stamping, we love it when things aren't matchy matchy and "just so." Life is not that way and fashion is is about personal expression. Let's keep it interesting, ladies. Let's mix it up. Let's layer it on and customize it by hand with uneven letters.
Today, I gave this letter to a old friend in hopes that it reaches Eugenie Bouchard sometime soon:
I have enjoyed watching your grit and determination on the court.
To celebrate who you are and all the greatness you represent for so many Canadians, I want to gift you this “tell your story” charm necklace - personalized with your first initial on a heart, a tennis racket personalized with a B for your last name, a pearl of wisdom (which also could represent a tennis ball), a Canadian maple leaf for your roots and a key - for you to unlock your goals.
