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.

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!

Absolutely obsessed with my new necklace designs. They are so feminine and chic, I just love them. Available for sale on my store.
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,

Tomorrow I will be displaying my latest creation at the South Miami Rotary Art Fest. I call it the Equinox and its colors are what inspired the name of this statement piece. It is made out of Sterling Silver set with 4 teardrop Labradorites with stunning labradorescence, 9 round red carnelians, 8 green Jades, and 5 denim blue Lapis Lazuli cabochons. It hangs perfectly centered and dangles with your every move. Its simply spectacular and I am very happy to show you this beautiful piece this weekend.
It takes place in the vibrant downtown area of South Miami on Sunset Drive (SW 72nd Street) from US 1 to Red Road (SW 57th Avenue) adjacent to The Shops at Sunset Place. T

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!
