Creating jewelry to match a certain outfit, to accessorize for a life event or just for fun makes me happy.
Have you bought a necklace set for a special occasion? What occasion?
I bought a Judaica Chai necklace from Israel (from my husband) as an anniversary gift and remember our anniversary and our love each time I wear it.
Today I am wearing a turquoise and red crocheted wire necklace with a mint green top with pink and blue embroidered flowers and birds on it. The blue is the unifying color and it pops out of the necklace and my long sleeved top. The colors I'm wearing make me feel springy and cheerful.
Turquoise is one of my favorite colors for clothing and jewelry. I call it a feel good color. Turquoise is the color of royalty because the gemstone was originally only worn by royalty because of the price.
Did you know I didn't get my ears pierced until about 6 years ago? One of my coworkers suggested that I get them pierced so I could wear my own designs. Now, I'm hooked on fishhook earwires.
What are your favorite earwires? posts? fishhooks? leverbacks?
In general, jewelry lets me be bolder than I really am and makes me feel that my outfit is complete. Now, if I don't wear earrings and a necklace, I feel naked.
I laugh at myself because sometimes I really do wash floors while still wearing my pearls (like June Cleaver in Leave it to Beaver).
How does jewelry make YOU feel?
Are there any color combinations or jewelry styles that you'd like to see in my shops? I design with color meanings and gemstone characteristics in mind.
Action to take:
Like my Facebook page (How does jewelry make you feel) and tell me:
1. What does your special occasion purchase remind you of?
2. What color combinations would you like me to create for: necklaces, bracelets, earrings, women's beaded kippot
3. Anything else you'd like to share.
Look for the Coupon Code in the first comment on my Facebook page.

Other people have invited me, but I’m selecting only handmade shows, if I can help it, or shows I’ve done before with positive results.
|Sat. 10/19/2013||9a -4p |
Handmade Arts & Crafts Festival
St. Charles Episcopal Church
994 North Fifth Ave
St Charles, IL 60174
1800 Short Street
This was a show I did in April
I’m working on my booth set up, but I can’t find the pictures I took playing with a new set up.
Things to improve:
- Larger Signage
- Iron tablecloth
- Put less out
Questions: Do you have a banner or craft show sign to show me? Where did you get it?
How much do you put out? How can I make it look full, but not cluttered, without carrying a shelving unit?

Thanks for the shops who included my jewelry / kippot in their Etsy Treasuries. This post is to reciprocate and feature a piece of their handmade work.
I’m a little behind in posting these, but it’s better late than never.
Thank you so much, Etsy shop owners.
