Coral Beads: Why You Need One

Hello! How are you? I'm doing good if you ask me. I'm thanking Him for another opportunity to continue in the land of the living.

As a child, I remember my grandma  and mom buying and having beads. I never knew what type of beads these where or why they needed them. These beads came in different shades of peach, complete neck piece sets, bracelets, and sometimes earrings. They were used only for special occasions.

So why are these beads cherished?

It was when I became older that I understood the importance. I knew they were CORAL beads and are rare, expensive and cherished by our ancestors. Some of these beads were actually passed down from generations and this has continued till today.

They are cherished because it goes with our cultural heritage. It is used for occasions like weddings, traditional festivals, chieftaincy titles, burials and coronations.  They are valued and believe to carry some kind of family sentiments, bond and story which is passed down.

So, nothing is truly complete in any of the occasions mentioned above without them. It's  even seen as disrespectful not to have them on and it can lead to a fine or a scold and seen as disregard of our culture.

Do you now know why its very important to own your own set of Coral beads.

Do you own one? If not, its time to get yours.

Are your parents or grandparents alive? Do they own theirs? Did you inherit any from them?

Tell us a story on how you got yours and  and when you used them.

Share below, shoot an email if you need them, we create varieties for different occassions.

Blessings!

Statement With Your Fur

Top of the day lovelies! Hope the week has been good to you. If yes, can you share one of your highlights; remember, this is suppose to be an interactive blog. If not, any lessons learnt? Get up, dust yourself, and do it right this time!

OK! Have you said or heard someone say "they made a statement"?  or "want to make a statement"? Well, I believe you have. What are the reasons for making statements? To be different from the crowd, to be noticed and admired, to be the center of attention, be powerful and present, feel good about oneself etc... Kindly add yours in the comment box.

Keeping this in mind, when we apply this into the context of what we wear, you can agree with me that making statements goes hand-in- hand with how we portray ourselves. How we look or try to make a statement depends on the occasion and how you feel . If you're going for a job interview you dress to look smart and on top of your game. You could do this by wearing a crisp suit or shining your shoes till they reflect like mirrors. Every individual has what they term as "statement " This is why I'm bringing to you this "statement piece" from our collection. Very beautiful, bold and stylish! Don't we all love to be classy! It comes in a variety of  colours and it goes with western and traditional outfits, depending on how you choose to  rock it. If you want to know how to match it with these modes of dressing, let me know in the comment box as well.

Incidentally,  this beading pattern is called fur, which  agrees with making statements. Fur in the 20th century and even now shows class and luxury, which is exactly what this set conveys. Below you can find pictures of how I chose to 'fur' myself with this beautiful set. What are you waiting for? If you're done feeding your eyes  order yours now and join me in making a statement. Share with me, how you would wear this.

Love always!

Our Very Own 2-in-1 Design

The year is still young, so happy 2019! I believe this is the time to position and kick off for whatever endeavours you want to pursue. As you know, its already clicking ...the time, get up and move.

We are officially open for business and I look forward to an exciting and rewarding year by God's grace. And I wish you the same.

As you already know, I'm always excited to share new things with you and this one is super exciting! Our very own design, yes, it's created with basic pattern (CRAW). This pattern was now further developed by me to create our very own 2-in-1 design! This truly made my day, week  and month!  Do you know what it means to think through, try out, fail, try again and again, and still fail?! Not giving up, I kept trying until it clicked and the frustration just flew out  the window. I succeeded! You need to see my dancing moves!

Hahaha

Anyway, the glory belongs to God. Having created this design, I put it into test and came out with very beautiful pieces.! The unique thing is, you can wear both sides ( front and back) giving the feel of owning two separate sets!  Which is  why it's called the 2-in-1 set.  So, you have the dominant side, which has just one colour. Then, on the other side is a different colour, but, with a little of the dominant color at the sides.This gives you two different designs for one set!

Very versatile and beautiful. There's more exciting news though: It also comes with not one but two pairs of earrings (in the two colours) and a matching bracelet, like the necklace.

Enough talking. Let these pictures do the rest! You'll also see one of our very beautiful clients rocking it below. You too can get yours beautifully crafted. Let me know in the comment box. Shoot an email, Questions too?...will love to know below.

Blessings!

Beaded Tassels Earrings: Burst of Colours!

   HAPPY 2019!!! We made it, to God be the glory!

I know you're in full gear for the season, so what will you be doing? Visiting relatives in the village, visiting your parents, travelling of to a resort in or outside the country? Or just chilling at home with lots of  foods and drinks?

Well, whatever your preference is, going out at this point is compulsory. So what are you wearing?  Your style also determines your mood so look good and feel good!

Count Your Blessings!

Greetings to you. How has your week been?  WOW!  We are at the end of 2018.  I really wonder how this year flew by so fast. Like a roller coaster if you ask me

lol...

 I clearly remember my last Christmas and other things that happened like yesterday. I remember always telling my kids that 2018 was going way too fast and I just wished it could slow down. Well, time waits for nobody, hence the need to judiciously use it to the best of our ability. It's been a tough and interesting year but it's  had its highlights too. Very grateful to the Lord Almighty for being around and there for me.

How has your year been? Beautiful, great, awesome, brilliant, hard, challenging, disappointing, painful?   Which do you wish to end 2018 with? The pains or the gains? Well, I choose the gains and the blessings because only the LIVING celebrates. Therefore I choose to count my blessings and thank God for everything that has led up to this second.

Whether it be the fact that you're alive, you're  here, you're  healthy, you're working, you're walking, you have a roof over your head, you have kids you have a family, your loved ones are alive,  you can see, talk, cry (add to the list too), find reason to always give gratitude and thanks to the Almighty. I hope you're aware many people can't do these things we unconsciously take for granted. Blessings don't have to be  just milestones or dreams that come to pass, but little things that make the difference in our lives!

Release yourself from that anger or depression and be grateful. Get ready for 2019. Not  necessarily New Year resolutions, but hey, if it works for you please go ahead.

Reflect on the ending year and learn from the mistakes. Don't crucify yourself. We can not come and go and kill ourselves.

lol...

Rejoice and be grateful for another year to get things right and properly done!

Rise and shine! Enjoy the season and have fun!

Here are some jewelries to inspire you and kill that outfit. Available for order. Customized as well if you want!





 Remember, you have blessings that money can't buy! Be encouraged and drop a word below!

Blessings!

Bond Earrings: United We Share


Another reason why it's special is because of the number 3 and what it stands for. 3 represents love, perfection or completion which complements closeness and bonding

    I'm going to share a personal story with you today. I grew up with my grandma and looking back to those days bring fond and sweet memories. My grandma was an industrious and beautiful being (both in and out). She was accommodating and encouraged me to take my education seriously and the power it holds for our future even though she, herself, wasn't educated. This was one of the many other things she did to make sure we were on the right path. Personally,when I look back,I remember the daily chores I was subjected to do. Oh! how I hated them...lol. Today I appreciate those things and I thank God she brought me up the old traditional way; what they term "old school".

    She lived a fulfilled life and passed away in 2017 at a very ripe age of  96! Leaving behind  many children, grand and great grand...what a blessing! Not just her biological children, however, she had adopted and acquired children cutting across different generations! Now, why this story? I shared a very close relationship with her and even loved her more when, I got married, had kids and started understanding how life is! Her words of wisdom, advice and views about things helped shape me. I remain eternally grateful for that and I pray I'll be able to touch lives the way she did (in my own little way) and keep her legacy going on.So help me God, Amen!!

    This beautiful bond I shared with her gave birth to my BOND EARRINGS which is in honour of her.  Another of  my little ways to keep her legacy alive. It's a simple set of earrings; 3 pairs, similar in design but not the same length. These earrings were made for people who share special bond: Mothers and daughters, Sisters, Besties, Role models/ Mentors....anyone you share a very close relationship with.  So you're able to carry around a physical/ sentimental representation of those special people who influenced you, and without them, the story of your life is incomplete ...you get the drift?

   This is a limited edition, created based on customers'preferences. Also, If possible, share your story on why you need these lovelies just like I did!
Note: colours vary!

Thank you for reading and I will love to hear from you because united we stand and share with our Bond Earrings!

Cheers to that!
