Things We Adore: Stella & Dot + Giveaway!

I love jewelry. Not a day goes by when I do not wear jewelry--I even made sure I had on pretty earrings (and a pedicure) when I was in labor and delivery with both boys. That's just how I roll.

For the past couple years, I've worn my own pieces from my Loubird Handmade line.  As you know, I closed my site a couple months back and my line is only offered in one shop now: Southern Fried Studio & Shop in Virginia Beach. I wanted to scale back greatly and have my work in one venue instead of keeping up with creating and having inventory in several boutiques. The only place you can find my line is at this great shop.

Anyway, now that I am not selling my line, I can wear the rest of my jewelry pieces and change up the styles.  My favorite brand of jewelry happens to be from Stella & Dot, a celebrity coveted brand of high-quality pieces with lots of flair!

In fact, it's pretty much my go to line for my preference for chunky jewels. Not long ago, I posted my collection on Pinterest.  There really is something for everyone.  If you like yellow gold, there's something for you.  Prefer silver tones? No problem.  Love dainty rather than bold?  Again, there is a piece out there for you.

Here are my three favorite pieces and I wear them often:

I want to share that my friend Sheryn is now a Stella & Dot stylist.  If you're local, Sheryn Kelderhouse is the woman behind the former Vintage Bliss, a well-loved boutique in the Rochester area.  In fact, I was honored to have shared her last day in business with her when I held my town trunk show at her shop on January 29.

Sheryn is a doll. She's really a wonderful lady with a real sense of panache. She knows her jewelry and is a great rep for Stella & Dot. If you're looking for a stylist, Sheryn is the one I would definitely seek out.
