I love finding things that make me feel good.Â I know this sounds lame, and trust me, I LOVE being a mom and I LOVE our darling Littles – but there are still more than a handful of times that I long to fit in my cute jeans from pre-pregnancy, or pop on that cute pair of heels that I know used to turn a few heads…but I just don’t seem to get the same reaction these days.Â Not sure why.Â Do you think having a Little gripping each leg, a bun in the oven and the morning’s breakfast dried to my shoulder along with the 3-day-no-washed-hair has anything to do with it???
Needless to say, when I find something that makes me feel cute and gives me a little jump in my step, I have to share it.Â This past August I took a girls trip to Dallas and found this darling little ring made with gold wire and a wonderful warm-gold crystal.Â It was a perfect take home gift for the trip.Â A week later when I returned to California, I saw a bowl of the same ring at my hair salon and was shocked that they were under my nose the whole time!Â Then this past November, the artist was actually at the salon and making custom pieces.Â I had a pair of earrings made to match my ring and was thrilled!Â Nothing like a little bling on your fingers and ears to make you feel pretty!Â (Especially after you’ve just had your hair done!).
Meet Amy Anderson
Amy is absolutely darling!Â She proceeded to make me a perfect pair of earrings after carefully scrutinizing all of her stones to find just the right matching colors.Â Her charm was infectious and you could tell she loved what she was doing.Â I was shocked at the prices, $40 – $50 for rings and earrings.Â I expected them to be higher…but her reply was:
“…that everyone deserved something pretty.”
Those are words to remember, and make you smile!
I really love Amy’s approach to her jewelry.Â In her past life she was a colorist for world-renowned celebrity stylist Jose Eber.Â But before long she started designing jewelry. And her eye for detail and talent for visualizing colors allows Amy to design specifically for each individuals skin tone and personal style.Â Don’t you just love that your piece is made specifically for you, at an affordable price!
If you miss her in Orange County, you can also find her at the Colors Salon & Boutique in Caesars Palace, Las Vegas once a month or Amp Salon in the Palms Resort and Casino.Â She designs custom pieces, as well as meets with brides to do bride’s jewelry and bridesmaids gifts.Â What a beautiful keepsake!Â And a great price for a bride’s difficult to contain budget.Â Amy will work with you to pick colors and styles that best suit your dresses and design.Â I think these are FABULOUS Holiday presents for your sister, girlfriend, etc.
