How-To: Accessorizing for Your Body Type ~ Necklaces

How-To: Accessorizing for Your Body Type ~ Necklaces.

Un-Mother’s Day Me…South Jersey Etians Blog Hop

Mother’s day is a day that for a long time caused me a lot of grief.  Not because I don’t love my mother and know that I am blessed to still have her with me, but because I know that I will never be a mother and that makes me sad (sad being the understatement of the century).

I found two quotes that I found fitting about how I am coping as an infertile and I wanted to share them.

If a tree falls in the forest, can anyone hear it? If an infertile cries in the bathroom at a baby shower, can anyone hear her?”  I have actually done this, baby showers, christenings, first birthdays~anything that celebrates mom & baby are extremely difficult for me–so much so that I avoid them, infertility is a very lonely and isolating disease.

But lately, after years of coming to terms with it (6 to be exact), I am trying to embrace this quote:  Life isn’t about trying to weather the storm. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.
I realized I spent 3 years of my life OBSESSED with getting pregnant and was not living my life, once I got my diagnosis, while devastating, it allowed me to start to try and move on; to try and learn to dance in the rain…and appreciate what I DO have in life!

Which leads me to the inspiration of today’s post: Mother’s Day for those that can’t be, don’t want to be, or just are not yet moms.

Join with me while I sing in the tune of the Alice in Wonderland song “un-birthday”   ~~**a very merry un-mother’s day to you, to you!**~~

I have designed a line of necklaces that are made for women who don’t have to be mom’s to wear.  I call this line “Put Your Heart Into It” because these necklaces mean what you make them mean!

Stop by my shop see!

Available in any color combination you can imagine!

Available in any color combination you can imagine!

Oh, and if you are blessed enough to be a mother or are looking for a gift for your mother, I have you covered, and Happy Mother’s Day- you work hard and deserve a day to be celebrated!

This post was in participation with Mother’s Day South Jersey Etsians Blog Hop, Please visits my fellow talented team mates!!

How To Accessorize A Neckline

A fellow Jewelry Artisan posted this blog, I found it very useful & thought I’d share!

OYINDOUBARA

Having the right accessories for an outfit is very important to pull together and give a coherent definition and message to whatever we wear.

Today, I am pleased to share with you all a cheat sheet I came across online. This sheet has a number of different necklines, their names and the different kinds of necklaces that bring life and allure to the outfit.

Feel free to reference this sheet  anytime, you can’t decide on what necklace to wear with an outfit or anytime you need to figure out what neckline goes best with your planned outfit.

Family Bugs Blogging

imageColleen Jordan from WearablePlanters makes these adorable jewelry pieces that are bound to turn heads and start people talking. It is so clever the way she has turned greenery into an artistic fashion. From necklaces to lapel pins, clips, and even a few coasters, this girl has thought of it all! If you LOVE plants, work in a greenhouse or other herbivore, these items are definitely for you. And what cute little gifts they would make too.

You can check her out on etsy, and don’t forget to stop by to read the featured seller interview that Etsy did for her!

She creates these planters by using a modeling software. The techniques vary slightly depending on which specific planter you are interested in, but there seems to be a bit of personal hand-crafting to each one to give a unique one of a kind look…
