my helper






Tessa sat with me for over an hour last night helping me make initials :)

We are getting ready for a show and would love ideas for ready to go pieces, what would YOU buy?

Something with the word hope on it. I especially like the star you have, but would rather see words besides wish on it.

Kacee said...

how sweet!! what a good helper!

not sure what you are looking for exactly, but my first thought was "God's girl" or "Faith"... that would be cute

Elle's Mom said...

Initial pieces for sure! Also, what about one that says "mom." I have one and people ask me about it all of the time. I'm sure there will be lots of moms looking at your items :-)

Celeste said...

What a great helper! And I didn't realize that Sharpie is what makes the letters darken - that is so cool!

Hmm...let's see. I agree that "Mom" or "Mommy" would be good. Also, how about some "I Love You to the Moon and Back" ones - I know some moms who have those (w/o names or anything else) and everyone is always asking about them. And, I always like Biblical quotes like "Be Still" (from "Be still and know that I am God") and "Blessed"

Oh, and how about something pertaining to teachers. People might like to buy their kids new teachers something special for the new school year.



...and, (I don't know how popular this would be), but I saw a sweet quote the other day:
"Let Them Be Little" - it was from a poem about how we need to cherish the innocence of children and not try to make them grow up too fast.

each of my kid's initials, something that says "love," something that says "blessed" if it would fit on it.

Celeste said...

...Oh, I forgot to add earlier...
Have you ever thought of having the option of adding some sort of "picture frame charm" to your necklaces so mommies can have a picture of their kids along side their names? I saw someone the other day with a necklace kinda like that and thought it was neat.

Annwen said...

I definitely like the idea of 'Mum, Mummy, Mama'.

Loved the 'Let them be little' suggestion too.

What about 'Cherished' or 'beloved' or 'nurture'

I was just looking at your rectangle charm bracelets. It made me wonder if you could do bracelets using the cirles? Maybe 3-4 or them spelling out the word 'wish' or 'dream' or 'hope' etc. That would be cute. Or maybe offer to make them with kids names in each circle - like a mom's bracelet? I would definitely love one of those with my 3 boys names on it! : ) Your jewelry is beautiful!

I would by anything with initials and words like, "dream, hope, inspire, luck, love". also..birds. they are so big right now! :)

Janee said...

simple words like faith, hope, love, dream, wish, peace, joy.... and my motto "Choose Joy!"

Kamisaurus said...

I like words like "adventure," "believe," "magic," "nature," and "peace."

mattie said...

Yep, the simple one word necklaces are my favorite as well. I wear my "Shine" necklace quite often...thanks!

Laura said...

I love the enameled necklaces, especially the butterfly. Good luck at the show! It's looks like you have an excellent helper. :)

Celeste said...

It's me again! *lol*

How about "Fruits of the Spirit" necklaces.
{love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control}

Hello,
I love your work and show it off to others. I would love to buy something but only wear earrings. So my vote, everything you have- in earrings.
I love the birds, joy, all of it really! As for new ideas... that is hard, you have covered so much. Maybe, 'chosen'. As an family built though adoption all of our friends are into multi-cultural stuff... google @ adoption and see if you are inspired. (most things will be too long) but the popular ones are 'pregnant on paper' 'from the heart' 'lucky mommmy' ladybugs, the world, flags and more.
You are one talented woman. I have a three year old great helper myself, that time working together is precious.

I love the "let them be little" suggestion. I would buy that!!

Rebecca said...

How about numbers. I would love something with each of my kids' birthdates on it, like a 12 for the kid born on the 12th, etc. I also like just having their innitials. I love the idea of charm bracelets, so maybe something where it's like pick your own prestamped charms.

Stacey Moore said...

what about something sporty?
maybe baseball mom?

Southern Traditions Boutique said...

I would love some earrings too :)

Such a sweet little helper you have!

sarah said...

Do you do key chains with initials and birthstones?!?

MamáChanga said...

How about some multi-lingual ones like: mamá, amor (love), amoré, milagro(s) miracle(s), fé (faith), etc.? Those would be cool too!

Hugs & Blessings!

enamel cross, heart. Maybe an owl they are popular.

"follow your dreams"

I am sure you will do great!

Sarah said...

How sweet!

I'd love a coin style bracelet with our daughter's, my husband's, and my initials attached.
