You may already know I am a mother to two young kids. My son is 3 years old, and my daughter is 14 months. One of the toughest parts of being a mom and a jewelry designer is that I rarely put any jewelry on! It is always being tugged on, chewed on or just abused.
Since I am actively trying to market my jewelry, I have to find ways to wear it. When I say I am a jewelry designer the first thing people do is look at what I am wearing. Unfortunately, it isn’t always a great representation of my jewelry line.
So I have found some pieces that I can wear that can take the abuse and still make me look slightly fashionable. Hint: It’s not earrings!
1. A Wrap Bracelet – These are very trendy right now. They come in different colors and can wrap around your wrist either 2 or 3 times. Click here to see some examples.
2. Statement Ring – A large ring that can be worn on the index, middle or ring fingers. I recently just made my first one, and I totally love it! Plus, it is quite a steal for only $10.
3. A Long Rope Necklace – It needs to be durable and not a light, delicate one. One that you won’t mind them chewing on and something you can slip off easily one handed! Click here to see some examples.
Now I don’t recommend wearing them at the same time, because they are all statement pieces and will compete. Plus you have got to spread the wealth, right?
