Nursing Mother Goddess Pendants are Here!

In the summer of 2008, I exhibited at the DONA Conference here in Vancouver, BC.  As we all filed-in to set-up our wares for the vendor area, my eyes kept wandering over to my neighbour's table.  If you don't already know this about me, I am a jewelry FREAK!  My neighbour was ceramic artist Susan Kirk and her beautiful, hand-crafted Nursing Mother Goddess Necklaces had caught my eye.  I'll admit that by the end of the 2-day conference, I left with several of her pieces.

A Nursing Mother Goddess Pendant celebrates and honours breastfeeding, thus making it "the" perfect gift for new mothers and their families, doulas, lactation consultants, midwives and ob/gyns.

These stunning hand-crafted ceramic pendants are available in four non-toxic, low-fire glaze colours - Stone Turquoise, Ivory (shown left), Ebony and Terra Cotta - effortlessly coordinating with anything and everything in your wardrobe!

Understated yet eye-catching, she will be a conversation-starter every time you wear her!  I can't tell you how many people have commented when I wear mine.

The Nursing Mother Goddess Necklace measures 2" tall (pendant portion) and is carried by a 25" black satin cord that is easily adjusted to be shorter if desired.

Tell us what you think about these necklaces.  Would you like to see more of this type of product in our online store?  Leave a comment below to share!

B@@B Jewelry - Yes, You Read that Correctly!

I a jewelry fanatic.  I always tell people that if I hadn't gone to Fashion school, I would have taken a silversmithing course or attended FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) for Jewelry Design.  I still plan to have a 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) career around jewelry at some point of my life. Yup, I am THAT passionate about jewelry armoire

For my 40th birthday, I bought myself a jewelry armoire (that's it to the right) so that I could more readily view and enjoy and WEAR my collection that had until that point, lived in various boxes and as a result didn't get worn and loved as much as it should have.

I absolutely LOVE this armoire!  You can find this one and others like it at Armoire Gallery.  I shouldn't have waited for my 40th to buy it that's for sure!

So the other morning @TheBoobLady followed me on Twitter and I promptly visited her site and blog (I visit the sites of every new follower by the way).  It was there that I saw the next addition to my jewelry collection... drool!Have a Heart Bust Pendant by Margaux Lange

You've heard it is Barbie's 50th this year right?  Well, an amazing New York jewelry designer by the name of Margaux Lange is making jewelry out of Barbie parts!  Sounds weird?  Perhaps... but take a look and make your own decision - I think you will be pleasantly surprised!  I am not-so-secretly coveting the Have a Heart Bust Pendant.  L-O-V-E the tie-in with breastfeeding.  Now I just have to decide which color to get...

What piece of Margaux's jewelry do you like?  Drop a comment below and let me know!
