I’ll Never Stop Loving You


Words hold super powers.  They can cause a smile in a split second, change a life,  and create lasting memories.

Words can also harm.  They can cause pain, tears and such sorrow that could change a life forever.


Choose your words carefully, think them through long and hard.


We’ve all been there, all been hurt by words and all felt the positive power of words.  Let’s focus on the positive power of words– it is a much brighter subject when your blog is about jewelry!!

Mother’s Day For the Handiwoman + Tools

tools for moms


There are all sorts of moms out there, some cook and clean and raise kids really well.  Others can do that + fix stuff and make stuff.  I admit, I don’t fall into those categories, but I can dream, right?  I do look online and get inspired to fix and create all sorts of things.  Why can’t I hang that new picture and make a bench for the backyard, right?  I pin away on pinterest all the time!!  Trying to convince myself I am handy and everything is easy.


Then the moms that do it really really well are out there, and put us others to shame. Hey, that is OK by me.  I still can rock this awesome tool necklace though and the matching bolt earrings.  It beats my kids name on a heart necklace anyday….just saying!

Mother’s Day Gifts

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching.  Don’t we all seem to forget to show our moms’ we appreciate and love them?  I know my family is guilty!

Being a mother is difficult and often a thankless job.  There is cleaning, cooking, carpools, homework and laundry to do daily and many times you go to sleep without a thank you.  But, you get up in the morning and do it all again without being reminded.  One day out of the year to put aside to say thank you, we appreciate you, we love you isn’t asking a lot.

Remind your mom that you love her with a little trinket, it might be looked at 6 months from now when the laundry bin is overflowing and the kids are screaming….

What is a Jewish Mama?

Jewish Great Grandma
A Jewish Great Grandma, a Bubeleh
So what is a Jewish Mama?
According to Wikipedia, the stereotypical  Jewish mother is ” a nagging, overprotective, manipulative, controlling, smothering, and overbearing mother or wife, one who persists in interfering in her children’s lives long after they have become adults.”   Or is  a Jewish mother one that a warm,  plump woman that always has a pot of chicken soup boiling on the stove?
Grandmother Ann Brooks

We all have mothers.  But not all fit in the same mold. 

I am now a mother, am I like the old European Jewish mother that came over at the turn of the cenury?  Am I the mother that nags, “put your clothes away, do your homework, wash you face!”  Or am I the soccer mom that drives all day long from one activity to the next? 

Honestly, I have three kids.  I seem to yell put this away, clean up, eat better….but I also help with school activities, work and drive from activity to activity.   I must confess I do love kickboxing, that isn’t too typical right?!

 It isn’t easy being a parent.  Our roles today are similar but so different to those of our grandparents.   Our worries are more global– out of the family business and neighborhood to the future.  What awaits the world and our kids?  It is fearful but also encouraging, knowing that we will continue on our lineage for years to come.

How do you like those pictures of my great-grandmother and grandmother?

What kind of mother are you?
