Hand-stamped sterling silver cross earrings with genuine freshwater pearls hand wrapped in thin sterling silver wire. These make a lovely Mother's Day gift or birthday gift for her. These drop cross earrings are sure to please - a gift for you? Great idea! You deserve !
Why is this handmade sterling silver necklace so popular? One word: because it's just plain FUN to wear, that's why! It's got lots of jingly, jangly parts (not that you can actually HEAR the parts jingling, but you get the idea) AND it will get you a nice bit of attention and compliments - WHY? Because this handmade necklace is just that different!

By the way, I call these two pieces "waterfall" because that's exactly what they remind me of!
These are some of the most popular dangle earrings of all time for my shop. Everyone loves sterling silver, so that is part of the charm but I think the rest of the story is in the "flexibility" of these silver earrings - they move with you and are just so much fun to wear because of that!
These earrings would make a great gift for mom (a Mother's Day gift) - you can choose silver, silver and gold or silver and copper.

"Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes,
including you." Anne LaMotte
I love that quote by Anne Lamotte and I think it's true. Do you have times were you just feel too tired to keep going and yet you do? Yeah, me, too. Why we do that? Why not take a break now & then? We are no good to ourselves or anyone else when we are exhausted.
As you know, I am working my way up my New Year's Hopes/Wishes. I am now at number 3, which is 'it's ok to rest". If you want to read the whole post, you can go here to read it now. That post was about what we choose to focus on.
I am going to start scheduling free time in my day; otherwise, I will fill every waking moment with work. The thing is, I love my work - I love making jewelry and I love connecting with people about the jewelry. That makes it a little harder to take breaks but I am determined to find some balance in my life.
Now that the Better Tomorrow Collection is complete, it's easier to schedule a little down time. For awhile there, I was designing, making, marketing, etc. and it seemed to just go on & on.
I am taking Friday afternoons off and I will be a better person for it! How about you? How can you find time to slow down a little bit? I could love to hear your thoughts!
JDRF works to support research toward finding a cure for type 1 diabetes, also called T1D. Their goal is to make daily life better and healthier for those people who have this disease.
When I started researching the design of a new collection to support this organization, I went first to their website to have a look at their logo and the colors they used - general information that could help me find a vision to work from for this collection. What I found was wonderful information to use as I starting planning the collection.
That lead me to question how to incorporate blue in the designs. Although most of my jewelry is sterling silver, I do love gemstones and have used them from time to time in my designs. The stone that came to mind was lapis lazuli, a beautiful rich blue stone with gold or sometimes tiny white flecks of quartz.
On to the next question - does the gemstone lapis lazuli have an association with something? Back to the internet to research this beautiful stone and it's symbolism across time and cultures. I didn't have to look far to find what I wanted - lapis is associated with inner power and courage, two traits that are undeniably associated with people diagnosed with T1D.
So, I had the color and the gemstone I would use for the collection. I knew that I couldn't make an endless number of pieces for the collection so I had to narrow it down in some reasonable way. I will tell you about that process next time!

I love the combination of sterling silver and freshwater pearls! Not only is it a lovely combination but the combination is perfect for all seasons of the year. Pearls lend a light and airy look to summer fashion and are a wonderful compliment to the "winter whites" in your closet.
This is a true jewelry classic, in my opinion. In fact, speaking of "classic", I put together this Pinterest board called "Classic Fashion" that I thought you would enjoy! Go here to have a look: Laura Teague Jewelry: Classic Fashion
