Drumroll Please.....

And the winner of the "It's Not All About Pigs" Giveaway Contest is....


And the answer to why I named my shoppe Hammi Jammi Jewelry is because when my kids are acting like such clowns I started calling them hams. Then it turned into "you are a hambone jambone." Now, it's abbreviated to "you are a hammi jammi." I also love pigs so the name seemed fitting for my Jewelry Shoppe on Etsy.

A Wedding In A Box

Well, I alluded to a new business venture a few weeks ago. Several vendors and I have been furiously working on coming up with our promotional materials for A Wedding In A Box . We all have such positive feelings about this new venture we are embarking upon.

It's a portal for health and beauty, massage and yoga, jewelry, honeymoons, and photography all geared towards brides and their bridal parties. We are targeting brides in the Eastern PA region (the Philly subburbs). We will be able to go to bridal shows and reception venues and give brides a taste of something spectacular and unique.

Anyway, if you have a moment, take a look at the website. All the kinks aren't totally worked out yet, but it's pretty close. You can even see the "magazine" we've created to hand out to potential clients.

A New Twist on Motherhood

A client of mine asked me to create something that she could give to her mom and her sister that would be meaningful. So we came up with a bracelet and necklace made out of carnelian, turquoise, tigers eye beads, and copper. I am making 3 sets (one for my client, her mom, and her sister). She is traveling to Columbia the end of the month so my jewelry is going International...LOL! The bracelets have small copper charms that have the initials of my clients 2 children and the initals of her sister's child. The necklace has a small charm near the clasp that has the first initial of each of the children. I really wanted to share pictures of these pieces since it's something really special and not your typical mother/grandmother jewelry, but it still commemorates special little people.
