Introducing Sunday Stories October 15 2017
Sometimes I wish the world was all hearts and flowers. Especially lately! We seem to be bombarded with bad news these days. I know that I've found myself taking some extra time to appreciate my family, friends and the life I have. I hope you can take a moment for a walk on the beach, curling up with a good book, laughing more, lunching with friends...whatever makes you happy or brings you peace! Grab some cider or a pumpkin latte with someone you love!
One way I'm making an effort to embrace what's important to me is by introducing "Sunday Stories" on social media, #sundaystories @bethjewelry. Over the years I've heard so many sweet stories from people who've gotten a heart necklace for themselves or for someone special and what it symbolizes for them. I'm so touched by all these stories and love hearing that my jewelry has had a special meaning and brought some joy. I've decided to start sharing these stories! I hope this will be a way to focus on what's beautiful in our lives.
I'm starting today with a story of the inspiration for one of my most popular necklaces: the 3 tiny hearts necklace.
My story is simple. I'm a mom of 3 boys. Three very different boys. I love them all!
I created the 3 heart necklace with 3 different metals to represent my 3 sons. One tiny heart in silver, one in gold and one in rose gold all on a delicate sterling silver chain. They are each precious and unique. Each tiny heart is handmade and varies slightly from the others, yet they do resemble each other. The hearts are connected. The boys are too. I love each of them for their own unique qualities. None is superior, just different. (You can see a picture of my boys on Instagram;)
This is what the 3 tiny hearts necklace means to me.
But, I've heard so many other stories about what it symbolizes to others!
Sometimes it is 3 sisters, friends, grandchildren...
sometimes it's mom & 2 kids
or mom, dad & baby...
and sometimes people ask to add another 🖤 to represent their 4 kids! And on and on!
This is one of my most popular necklaces for gifting 🖤🖤🖤
and then there's the 3 hearts bracelet...
Think Pink! September 30 2017
We all know someone that has been affected by breast cancer. I love that October has become Breast Cancer Awareness Month and presents so many opportunities to be a part of a good cause. This month I will be selling my jewelry as part of the Think Pink Pop-Up Boutique with 20% of sales going to Wall of Honor. I've also introduced some new "think pink" themed jewelry designs to help spread the word. I hope you'll come by and see me on Oct 3rd if you're in the area!
THINK PINK Pop-Up Boutique
October 3 11am-5pm
Mission Viejo Country Club
26200 Country Club Drive
Mission Viejo, CA 92691
The Think Pink Pop-Up Boutique is part of the Wall of Honor effort for breast cancer awareness. Mission Hospital Valiant Women in partnership with The Shops at Mission Viejo will host the "THINK PINK" Breast Health Wall of Honor. This incredible event encourages the community to honor breast cancer patients and survivors through a beautiful collection of tributes displayed on the Wall of Honor, located on the Lower Level of The Shops at Mission Viejo, near Nordstrom.
rose quartz dangly chain earrings $90
With the generosity of the community and donors, last year the event raised net proceeds of more than $58,000 to support Mission Breast Health Services at Mission Hospital and funded screening mammograms, diagnostic procedures to under or uninsured women in our community and provide funds to Breast Health Programs. Additionally, a volunteer team of 175 individuals comes together to staff The Wall of Honor throughout the month of October.
rose gold-filled & oxidized sterling silver tiny heart necklace $43
rose gold-filled spiral stud earrings $60
You are invited to share your stories and partner with the Wall of Honor in raising funds for this year's event. Your sponsorship and involvement will help honor the survivors, remember those we have lost, and remind everyone that the fight isn't over.
It starts with a mammogram: for you, for someone you love, or for someone you don’t know but whose life you can touch.

Locals' Favorite Go-To Place For Gifts September 10 2017
Since I started wholesaling Beth Jewelry, I've had the pleasant opportunity to get to know some great shops and shop owners! One of my favorites just happens to be less than an hour away from where I live. Aranelle is located in the charming neighborhood of Carlsbad Village in Southern California.
Here's a little about Aranelle and owner, Michelle:
How long has Aranelle been opened?
What was the motivation behind opening your store?
Fortunately, the store was already "opened" as Madison Leather and Luggage, and then as Fairen Del. In 2013, I had the amazing opportunity to become its new owner, and changed the name to Aranelle.
When did you start offering Beth Jewelry to your customers?
What are the hottest selling items in your store?
Both jewelry and apparel are the top selling departments at Aranelle. We offer a unique array of styles and price points that appeal to a diverse clientelle. One of our anchor brands, Johnny Was brand is on fire - tops, leggings and handbags all fly out the door. Hobo handbags and wallets do really well and Second Nature by Hand wooden signs with meaningful or witty sayings are hot right now.
What initially attracted you to Beth Jewelry?
We were attracted to Beth Jewelry because of her locally-created delicate designs. Aranelle serves many tourists who love to take a piece of Southern California home with them.
What is the best-selling Beth Jewelry piece you offer?
Hearts! What better way for men and women to express their love.

Spring Flowers are Everywhere April 04 2017
Thanks to a much needed rainy season Southern California is experiencing a rare super bloom! I am a huge fan of wildflowers! I moved to Orange County, CA about 12 years ago from Ohio (where we experience a fairly long and usually very cold and very gray winter). One of my favorite things about living here is that there are flowers blooming all year long! I love to be able to get outside any time of year to enjoy the beautiful sites.
If you follow me on Instagram, I'm sure you've seen lots of posts from my hikes, which have lately been all about the flowers!
But, what you may not have known is that when I get back from a hike, I often head right for my studio. I'm always at my most creative when I've given myself time to stop and literally smell the flowers!
You may also have seen some of my designs that were inspired by this love of mine...
I offer this Flower Necklace on Leather in several options, including silver, gold and rose gold. Or, this option...
You can see the rest of our Flower Collection jewelry here, but here's a sneak peek:
Go outside and enjoy some Spring Flowers today!
If you'd love to stay in the loop about new designs resulting from my current inspirations be sure to subscribe to our email list here. You'll also gain access to our VIP Vault, where we post new designs first, one-of-a-kind creations, exclusive sales and more.
Cloudy with a Chance of Jewelry February 17 2017
We are finally having some rainy weather in Southern California!
I choose to call it inspiring;)
I'll be cozy in my studio working on new designs during the rain...stay tuned!

Sentimental Heart Jewelry ~ It's not just for Valentine's Day! January 23 2017
We all love to give and to receive gifts that have a particular meaning to us. Over the years I've loved hearing stories of the who and why behind so many heart necklace gifts.
One of my most popular designs was even inspired by my own 3 boys: the 3 tiny hearts necklace. It continues to be one of my most popular pieces, especially in the silver, rose, gold combination. I like to think of the 3 metals as representing how the 3 boys are each unique...
One of the first heart necklace designs that I made is still a favorite! I continuously have people tell me how much they love wearing this and about all the compliments they get on it. But, my favorite thing to hear about is who they bought one for and why. There are so many lovely stories out there! I've gotten so many pictures of people wearing this necklace style, but this is one of my favorites:
3 sisters, 3 best friends, 3 granddaughters...you can get one for each of you:
You can special order a specific number of hearts to represent her children...
Heart necklaces are the perfect gift for mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, grandmothers, mother-in-laws!
Check out more styles here. Want to customize your necklace? Send me an email at email@example.com. Your jewelry will come packaged in a cute gift box with a big red bow all ready for gifting. Orders typically take about 2 weeks to deliver. Please order by Feb 1st for Valentine's Day.

Out With the Old and In With the New January 14 2015
We started 2015 by tearing down our booth at the Sawdust Festival.
Did you know that these booths are temporary structures? They're torn down and rebuilt every year! All of the artists go back after Christmas and take down their booth, leaving nothing but the sawdust. Then in the spring, they will go back and build a new booth. Most people re-use the materials every year. I recruited some helpers for the tear down this year...
With the Winter Fantasy displays and holiday decorations stowed away I am ready to dig into 2015. Like everyone else this time of year, I am busy organizing and planning. For a jewelry artisan this is also a time for scheduling shows for the upcoming months and updating the website. You can now access my show schedule on the website. Just click the tab for "Upcoming Events".
2 weekends left at Winter Fantasy December 09 2014
Two weekends left to finish up your holiday shopping. Want to avoid the mall and the crowd? Come stroll the Winter wonderland where 175 artists are selling unique, hand-made art. You'll find jewelry, glass, ceramics, photography and so much more. Come in the evening to enjoy the twinkling lights! Bring the kids for a visit with Santa! Don't forget your list; grab a drink; finish your shopping in peace:)
Love this picture of the entrance with the bright blue sky, so typical of Southern Cal.
Here's a picture of my booth. It's by the stairs, with great proximity to great live music!
