WORKING 9 – 5

Some of my jewelry designs have been working very hard from 9 to 5.  These pieces not only look pretty and help women to express their own unique style, but they perform a much-needed task.  They help women do their job and look beautiful while doing it. These designs actually get women in the door.  What kind of jewelry can do all of this?—-a unique and handcrafted necklace lanyard.

Celtic Knot and Byzantine Lanyard

Lanyards are beautiful, but are also very practical. You can wear your lanyard at work and when you step out of the office, you un-clip the ID badge and you have a beautiful necklace and an eye glass or sun glasses holder if need be! Then, back at the office you clip your badge right back on and you’re ready to go back to work.

The number of lanyards I’ve sold has been unbelievable.  I’ve sold lanyards with gems, pearls, butterflies, hearts and various other focal pieces.  Some have been very colorful and others more subtle.  I’ve had several women request slight changes to a particular lanyard to make it perfect for them.  I’ve had one design in particular that has been extremely popular—my Celtic Knot Lanyard.  It’s a fairly simple design, is somewhat classic and since it is all silver and it goes with almost every outfit.  I’ve added many variations on this design, but the original one has outsold all other lanyards.

Celtic Knot Lanyard

I’m happy that my line of necklace lanyards has been selling well and I also like knowing that my necklace lanyards might possibly make a woman feel a bit more beautiful as she works 9-5.

The perfect ‘flapper’ necklace

There are many rewarding aspects to being a woman who designs and creates jewelry. It’s great to be able to make custom pieces to go with particular outfits. My friends often notice my jewelry and their comments are very helpful.

The days that I want to wear a new design I get ready in an unusual way. Most women get dressed and then choose their jewelry, right? Not me–at times I decide what jewelry to wear and then find clothes that will go with it. It may be a bit odd, but after all, I am a ‘walking billboard’.

I often get orders for pieces I’m wearing. For instance, I recently had some women over for dinner and we agreed to all wear black….anything from pj’s to a formal gown. I chose a flapper outfit, and after donning my dress, feather headband and black boa I looked in the mirror.  I tried to picture which necklace would best compliment the outfit and instantly thought of one that I had made earlier that day—a long pearl necklace with a bit of a tassel.  It must have been the right choice because one of my guests liked it so much that she ordered one.

Not it’s time to get back to work and design something new for the ‘billboard’.  🙂
