You’re back! So here’s more of what you love! If you missed Part I, be sure to go check it out here. Now, on with the show! Part II of this bridal photo shoot series is a little different. Our lovely bride, Tanae blessed us with an opportunity to provide her jewelry for not only her wedding, but her reception! Thanks again, Tanae! Or should I say, Mrs. Walker!!!
From the moment she graced us with her presence…
Until the moment she made her triumphant entrance,
And they sealed their eternal love with a kiss
The Lord’s favor was all aglow upon them
Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Walker!!! These two know how to party!
They wore us OUT!Many happy wishes, prayers and blessings to you guys from us always!
A special thanks to S. Summerell Photography for the gorgeous images of their glorious day!

Hi! How are y’all? I’m back with a Fall makeover! And what better makeover than your accessories. It’s time to freshen up what you love and ditch what you don’t. Once you’ve separated the love it from the leave it, you need to display it! Don’t waste time looking for your loveliest delights by hiding them in a drawer. No, put them on display for all (or at least you) to see! Then, when you walk into your boudoir, you can “shop” for what your heart desires without all the hullabaloo.
Need ideas? Here’s some great ones to get you started.
Glasses & Goblets
Sometimes little pieces have a tendency to try to get away from you! So why not store them somewhere you can see them and easily get to them? Wine glasses, goblets, martini glasses and even champagne glasses are a cute & chic way to display!
Jars & Vases
Add a burlap bow for some country glam or some silky ribbon to add your personal flair!
Bowls & Plates
Nothing says chic like elevation. This is just a clear glass plate atop a glass candle holder. You can affix them together with hot glue or glass adhesive for extra stability.
Cups & Trays
Paper Towel Holders
Ok, this is awkward! I don’t have one! But I was sitting around thinking how they would be great for stacking stretch bracelets and bangles, foldovers and wrap arounds.
Jewelry Display Stands
This is my bread & butter! Since I have a mini showroom in my office, I didn’t think it would be fair to myself not to have one in my closet!! So here are some ideas of ways that you can make your own showroom too!
Try some earring stands. No more one hit wonders (you know how you lost one and can’t find the other, lol). Set up your special occasion outfit or your daily diva ootd complete with earrings, necklace and/or bracelets. Don’t forget your handbags, polish and makeup honey!
I even separate items by metal, color or theme. Here’s some fur for ya!
And put those sweet finishing touches to make it your own.
DIY your own creation! (click here for a great tutorial!)
I made this one a few years ago (along with several others) and I have absolutely no regrets! It can hold almost 100 sets of earrings & bracelets between the bowl, the 2 levels and you can even put open bracelets around the rims, the edges and around the stem.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Do you want more like it? Just comment below!
Until next time,
Yeah, I know…it’s still winter. But it’s the perfect time to go through last year’s wardrobe and purge, prune and prep for this spring! Styles change, tastes change. So be sure your style reflects your current taste. Here are a few tips!
- What didn’t you wear last year? Get rid of anything that was a one hit wonder, not a reflection of you or just unused. Hate to part with it? Take one last super selfie with it & give it to a friend, loved one or stranger in need. The space alone will thank you!
- Since you’ve got all of your old jewelry out & have gotten rid of what you won’t wear this year, clean it. Give your old pieces some new shine! For silver, use a silver polishing cloth. For your faux fashion pieces, break out the toothpaste and a soft toothbrush. Need a step-by-step tutorial? Click here.
- Store your pieces responsibly. There’s no feeling like having the perfect outfit, makeup on and ready to put on your show stopper only to find it’s mangled, tangled or broken because of improper storage. So make sure they’re stored properly. Did you know that there’s different storage needs for different pieces? If you need storage ideas, check these out. There’s even a DIY you can try!
- Time to stock up! Take note (or pictures) of the outfits you have that need jewelry. Now browse www.thejewelryladystore.com for your next favorite items! Need help? Send me your pics and I’ll send you your own private, premier selection to choose from! It’s FREE, so why wait?!
Are you experiencing any of the following?
Dents or dings in your ring bands?
Loose bracelet links?
All jewelry is not created equal. Some pieces can withstand jumping jacks under an elephant and others seem to come apart with a cool breeze. Sometimes it’s the jewelry, sometimes it’s our personal habits. And there are many factors involved. Knowing these factors can also help us choose jewelry that fits our lifestyle and thus help us avoid regret.
Let’s look at what the cause may be to the damage you’re seeing.
Are you doing any of the following?
Sleeping in your jewelry
Links, toggle closures, posts and brackets can get hung, bent or broken while we toss and turn in our sleep. Not to mention they could come off and get lost! Remove your precious pieces before you turn in. It’ll cut down on those nightmares where someone is stabbing and slashing you. (It’s your jewelry poking and cutting you. lol)
Leaving jewelry tangled or balled up
This can also happen while sleeping, being improperly stored or if wearing it during vigorous movement. Store laying flat with no knots in a linear manner to avoid kinks and breaks.
Hanging heavy or moderately weighted necklaces or bracelets
I can’t stress this enough. Hanging jewelry puts stress on the links, wires, fabric and closures. In cases where the piece is lightweight, it’s ok, but overall, don’t risk the longevity of your piece. Store it lying down & untangled.
Storing in direct sunlight
If your piece has fabric, this is key. Direct sunlight can cause discoloration and/or fading. Not to mention that some sealants/glues may loosen with intense heat (like that through the window of a hot sunny day).
Wearing while jogging, doing dishes, using chemicals or operating machinery with moving parts
Sweat is acidic & dirt can cause wear on the finish of fashion jewelry. The buildup of dead skin & our body’s natural oils can also dull the shine on silver & gold. Avoid chemicals, creams & lotions as well. Some have found that not cleaning their 14K gold rings caused an allergic reaction because of the lotion, dirt and sweat that collected under them. EEEEW! Once cleaned, the allergic reaction stopped. Be careful not to wear loose jewelry (or to be safe, any jewelry) when operating machinery that could pull it off or get caught.
Wearing while gardening, washing dishes, washing your hair, washing your car, playing sports or doing manual labor
Again, dirt, oil, creams, soap with stripping properties, etc. can damage your fashion jewelry or cause buildup on your fine jewelry and require an increase of the number of necessary cleanings. Remove these items while completing these tasks to elongate their life.
Here are some facts about sterling silver:
Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by mass of silver and 7.5% by mass of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925. (Hence the 925 stamp found on sterling silver jewelry)
Many precious metals are very soft, which is why they are often combined with something else to add hardness so they will last longer.
Sterling silver tarnishes in the presence of sulfides in the air, emitted by diesel engines. Often, because silver tarnishes, it is often mistaken for imitation or silver-plated material. A good cleaning using natural products or a good quality jewelry cleaner designed specifically for sterling silver will restore the sheen and shine almost immediately (there are cases where more than one cleaning may be necessary. Be sure to follow the instructions to avoid damage to your item-don’t dip stones!!
Here are some ways to organize your jewelry. But notice the strands of pearls in the picture on the right? They should be stored in a line, not rolled or wound.
Silver Plate is a thin layer of Fine Silver placed over a base metal. Also known as Silver Tone, Silver Plate is often considered the most cost effective alternative to the more expensive forms of solid silver jewelry. That said, this form of silver is very thin, wears off easily and degrades in appearance quickly. (You won’t find these items in my selection for that very reason!)
Jewelry shouldn’t be worn in dirty or wet conditions or in situations where a lot of vigorous movement will occur. This is especially true for intricate or lighter weight pieces. Even sturdier pieces can take a beating if put in poor conditions. So love on your jewelry & it’ll be with you for years and years to come!
