A word for your journey

December 13, 2014 - 7:18am -- sue

Every year I share my new word or intention. I am still thinking about what mine will be for 2015.

At gift shows, if we get the pleasure to meet and chat (and I like to chat), I enjoy spending the time to help you select your word. I always say that your word should be aspirational and not reflective of where you are at now in your life.

Holiday memories

November 19, 2014 - 4:23pm -- sue

Every Christmas from age 1 to 25, my father gave my sister and me a Christmas tree ornament.

He gifted them to honour family, to mark the occasion and to remind of us of the year we had just shared.

Our summers in Maine were marked with a sail boat or a starfish ornament. My love of skiing was celebrated with tiny skis hung on a red ribbon. And the year I began playing guitar, he gifted me a mini guitar I could hang on my tree.

At age 25, my father passed. As luck would have it, I had accumulated almost enough holiday ornaments to fill a whole tree.

Shop by personality - new characters!

November 15, 2014 - 7:08pm -- sue

I'd like to introduce you to some new characters at Suetables:

Cute kid:
She's a darling – she's a devil. Mini in size but maxi in attitude! She's a handful for sure yet the twinkle in your eye.

Blushing Bridesmaid:
She's been at your side for years – first dates, break-ups and make-ups. An ever shoulder to lean on, she's taught you the meaning of true friendship.

The Dude
He's as comfortable hanging out with the chicks as he is with the guys. He's not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve nor a bracelet on his wrist. He's chill.

Marking occasions

Marking occasions

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle but will never break." proverb

Elizabeth, who is part part of our Suetables rep family, adopted their first daughter, Isabelle, through a local Halifax, Nova Scotia agency.

Mark your special day

October 29, 2014 - 11:56am -- sue

As I have embarked on my own modern/blended family, I love to see examples of others joining their families together.

A friend recently asked me to create something original and special to gift to her new blended family on their wedding day. She wanted something for her children and his children. The results were beautiful. And, in the end, even the bride couldn’t resist getting one for herself!

I stamped their wedding date on a dime-sized sterling silver round disk (a medium Kathryn love letter) and attached the charm to an Erin double-sided champagne bracelet.

The beauty of practising gratitude

October 14, 2014 - 1:18pm -- sue

Clients are loving this made-in-Canada Jacqueline Gratitude bangle hand stamped with GRATEFUL on the inside edge as a whisper and reminder to focus on being grateful for all that you have in your life. I am wearing mine (one or two of them layered with my Erin stretch arm candy) daily as my reminder.

As Eckhart Tolle says, “Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”

Suetables Inc.

October 2, 2014 - 2:47pm -- sue

When I got addicted to making jewelry in that first year (and I did!), I made and sold over 100 of one love letter necklace to the school-yard-moms in Toronto's Moore Park.

"What else do you have?" Moms asked me.

I listened to what they wanted. One necklace grew to a line of over 200 jewelry items - rings, earrings, pendants, bracelets, charms, key chains and more.

I knew the only way to really succeed was to make jewelry full time and focus on it every single day. So, five years ago, I began working full time.

Right brain stimulation

September 12, 2014 - 11:18am -- sue

I’ve been deep in financial numbers and inventory discussions this week - tiny, meaningful numbers that require my Jo Fresh magnifier glasses to see them full attention.

Those who know me best know that I hate numbers - not to mention paying attention.

Let me try that again: I love to focus on creative pursuits - like marketing, designing and writing. Is that right brain or left brain? I forget.

But, I know am one sided.

And I know that the logical, sequential, analytical side was on over drive this week. Big time.

A sterling effort

September 10, 2014 - 2:33pm -- sue

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.

Open heart

September 6, 2014 - 12:05pm -- sue

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.
