Today's Friday Feature comes from a sweet little shop called:
Her shop is full of super sweet jewelery for little girls! What little girl does not love jewelry? I still have my very first charm bracelet that I have cherished all these years. So when thinking about a special gift for your special little one, head over to My First Jewellery.
Before we get to the cute pictures, let's learn about the creator. We all have our stories of how we came to be =)
About the owner:
I am a wife and mother to a 6 year old girl, three dogs and a cat. Despite having only one child, we have a very busy household!
I studied Interior Design in college and afterwards took a job with my father's business that was supposed to be temporary until I decided how I wanted to apply my education. Fifteen years later, I was still there. Life had become very stressful, with a long commute, a job that was out of sync with my personality, and a large mortgage on a beautiful house that we were never home long enough to enjoy. Two years ago we picked up and moved almost three hours north, to a little town in cottage country. We wanted the simple life.
I have always been a crafter and I have dabbled in beading, needlework, crochet, scrapbooking and other paper crafts, drawing and sewing. When I decided that I wanted to craft full-time, I considered many different mediums. But the very first time I picked up some sterling wire, a beautiful gemstone and some pliers, I was hooked. I knew that I had found the right medium for me, because I couldn’t get enough of it. The fact that I love sparkly things helps! After almost two years I am still as excited about jewellery making as I was on that very first day. And I’m finally using those sketching, proportion and colour theory classes that I took in school, just in a different way. I am trained to look for inspiration in everyday things, magazines, stores, the outdoors. This comes naturally after studying design for three years. As far as designing jewellery is concerned, I am self-taught. I picked up a free booklet one day in a craft store that showed how to create a wrapped loop with wire. I tried it, and the rest is history.
About the items in her shop:
I make birthstone and heirloom jewellery for little girls. My 6 year old daughter Lauren gave me the idea when she saw the jewellery I was making for women and asked for her own gemstone necklace. I thought it was a great idea. Little girls appreciate beautiful things too, sometimes even more so that adults. Soon after, My First Jewellery was born. I use only genuine gemstones and pearls, and solid sterling silver in my jewellery. My work is often purchased for christenings, special birthdays and flower girl gifts. I have made many coordinating bridesmaid and flower girl necklaces, which is a lot of fun for me. All of my necklaces are adjustable in length and are able to grow with your child. I also make matching mother-daughter pieces and family birthstone necklaces. My designs are simple and pretty, and I use motifs that little girls like, such as flowers and rainbows. The idea behind my shop is that little girls deserve to have beautiful things too.
