Breast Cancer Awareness Fighter Necklace

In an effort to increase breast cancer awareness, 100% off the proceeds of this necklace will be donated to charity to help in the research of finding a cure for this horrible disease.

I made this piece with a very loving and caring heart. A heart that feels for grandmothers, mothers, aunts, wives, girlfriends, daughters, sisters, cousins, and entire families that have fought or are going through the battle by their sides. This is a piece made for fighters, for warriors, for survivors, for believers and overcomers.

As for me, this pendant is a reminder of the fighter that was my aunt, a woman who despite all news and odds against her never gave up. She fought until the last minute of her life knowing that her time with the Lord was soon to arrive. This is a reminder to take care of ourselves and not neglect our bodies. A reminder to do annual testing and live healthy lives to the fullest. A reminder to see the beauty in gloomy days and to love one another to the fullest and never stop fighting.

Shop Updates

Hi everyone!

Did you know that Etsy has a new amazing feature called Shop Updates? I just started using it and I’m hooked. I am able to add a picture update and link it to a product in my shop. The picture tells a story about the product or a behind the scenes look at the making of a piece. As most of you know,  I love social media and interacting with all of my current and future customers. You can find me on Snapchat, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr…. I think I have an addiction! LOL!

To find the shop updates link (on any Etsy shop) just go to your favorite Etsy shop: www.awljewelry.com and scroll down until you find the link on the left column of the screen.

 

After clicking on the link you will be directed to the updates page where you can find more info on new products, specials, and what I’m currently working on.

 

Feel free to stop by every week for new updates on my work.

[SOLD!] Jewelry Booth For Sale

UPDATE 3/21/2016 – The booth is no longer available. 

Hi everyone! First and foremost: Happy New Year! I wish you all a very exciting, adventurous, and prosperous 2016. My year has started with amazing news in both my business and personal life. With these news, come new business decisions for Always With Love to take.

After an amazing and successful holiday season, I have decided to dedicate all my energy to online sales. I will no longer sell in person and won’t be attending art/craft shows anymore. Although selling in person was a very fulfilling experience, I came to the conclusion that it wasn’t the best path for AWL.  For this reason I will be selling my jewelry solely on my Etsy Shop starting this year. I am, however, ready to part with my amazing booth with hopes it gets an amazing home and makes someone very happy.

Both my husband and I (mostly my husband) built this modern and stylish booth by hand. The booth is easy to transport and set up as legs come apart and the tables fold.  The L shaped table has a hidden drawer in the back for easy storage and access when selling. I used to keep my jewelry boxes and bags there. One of my favorite features is the lighting my husband installed on each glass case. It looks very professional and lit up my jewelry beautifully during night shows. It comes with everything in the pictures except for the white jewelry displays (and my jewelry!). It is in great condition and we got tons of compliments on it every time we set it up.  We spent over $1,300 to build it by hand and are selling it for only $725 or best offer.

Booth includes:

  • Commercial Grade 10X10 E-Z Up White Tent with walls (Water and Fire resistant top)
  • 5 Glass display cases with LED lighting.
  • Portable display tables with hidden drawer.
  • Black display wraps.
  • 4 Tent weights.
  • Black Necklace Display (Front Top Right of tent)

AWL on Daytime Television!

AWL Jewelry made it to daytime television! My Toothpick Sword Necklace© will be worn from now on by the characters in the Spencer Family on the daytime soap: The Bold and the Beautiful. The sword is of special meaning to the family, and the characters never take it off. It is a mayor accomplishment and I am very proud my jewelry caught the eye of the show’s producers.

Needless to say, I am beyond myself and couldn’t be happier!

You can watch the official Spencer Family Sword Necklace being worn by very handsome actors every weekday at 1:30pm on CBS.  Yay!

Pinterest Midi Love

Last month I received an Etsy order for 3 sterling silver stacking rings I designed for my midi ring collection. As always, I took my time to make them just right. I made sure the dollops matched, soldered, sanded, and polished each one until I was satisfied with their look. I then decorated my jewelry boxes with chestnut brown washi tape and topped it off with my sticker logo.  I printed and cut each box insert and they were ready to go.

To my surprise, around a week or so after I had shipped the items, I got an awesome review that made my day and I will never forget it. My customer took the time to stage my jewelry and model it for pictures. She wore the midis individually and she also stacked them for a modern twist. She added the pictures to her Pinterest Board and I was mesmerized. You see, not everyone knows how much time, effort, dedication, and love I put into every single item I make. She took pictures of the packaging as well as the jewelry. Ah, if only she lived in Miami… she could be my hand model! Thank you Vicky for this amazing gesture!

Always with love,

Adriana

Before and After

A client came to me with a pair of larimar earrings she had in her personal jewelry stash. She hadn’t worn them in a while because she didn’t like the fact that they were so plain and she wasn’t fond of french hook earring wires either.

I was told to re-vamp the design and give them a makeover. I took them apart because honestly, whoever made these, didn’t do a great job. I made completely new bezels adorned with twisted wire, embellished them with some antiquing and gave them ball posts. They turned out so cute I think I will make more of these to add to my inventory.

Let me know what you think in the comments!

Love always,

Adribefore after larimar
