Man, here we go…….December is in full swing! I feel like it will be 2014 before we know it……should I be thinking about New Year's resolutions? Do you guys make them? Aside from you know, taking care of our baby……how many resolutions am I going to be capable of making?
I really, really miss running and can't WAIT to start training again. I did Couch to 5k when I became a runner, so I figure I can do it again…..right? Am I underestimating my recovery after a C section????
Regardless of how long it takes my midsection to recover, at LEAST I have cute accessories……these earrings come from one of my fav Etsy Shops, The Little Coral Box. I'm introducing you to them today, and they're introducing you to a pretty awesome giveaway!
I loved chatting with Stephanie from the Little Coral Box about the shop that her and her mom started……their jewelry is adorable, and goes with EVERYTHING!
Why did you start your shop? It's always been something that I've wanted to do, as I am a naturally crafty person and love accessorizing with jewelry. I love being able to dress up an outfit with just a piece (or a few pieces) of jewelry. Growing up in a town that is filled with about a dozen custom jewelers and goldcrafters was amazing and really helped my love of jewelry to blossom. At this time in my life, it only seemed like a natural progression to begin handcrafting my own jewelry. My mom, Kat, is also one of the designers for the shop. I wanted to include her in the adventure so I could share it with her. Our styles are different, but when we put our minds together we create great things!
Tell me a bit about the style of jewelry you feature. Our jewelry style is simple and chic. Each piece is easily transferable from work to night. We have a few different types of style, including beaded work (not the seed bead types of beaded work), faceted gemstone pieces (as what was sent to you), and custom hammered wire pieces. We use only the best products for our pieces, including freshwater pearls and genuine Swarovski crystals. We, too, only create pieces that we would wear personally.
What is your favorite piece for the holidays from your inventory? Right now, my favorite piece is this necklace. It's unique and with the hammered style of wire, it just shimmers. The wire is hand-bent and shaped to create the swirls, too. If I had to choose a pair of earrings, it would have to be any of the faceted bezel gemstone earrings. I am just in love with that style!
