How Earthy met Elegance.....

Since my blog is new I thought I would take this time to write a bit more about myself and how my business started. I will start with my most biggest reason why, which is shown on my blog, my boys (oh, and husband of course! LOL). They are my reason for everything really! I am fortunate to be able to stay at home to raise my boys. Now granted some days I want to run screaming but 98% of the time all is good! Some days it might be and 80% 20% split! I have however found a groove with balancing my love of designing/making jewelry and being a wife and mom. It did take some time but it is all coming together and is a bit easier as the boys continue to grow. It also helps to have a super supportive husband who through my trials, tribulations and childbirth loves me anyway! LOL
So when this whole adventure began I had not a clue what to name my business. I knew I had to come up with something before launching my shop and venturing out to do vendor shows so I thought and thought. I am a very down to earth person, very "what you see is what you get", t-shirt and jeans kinda woman that sometimes shows her "spicy Sicilian side" (husbands term), loves simple things, the outdoors, the change of seasons... that is where "Earthy" originated. Flip that coin over and you have a definite girlie girl who loves to shop, get dressed up to go out, pretty shoes and bags and of course JEWELRY! That is where you get "Elegance". So out of that Earthy Elegance Jewelry Design was born. Taking the elegance and crossing it with earthy and simple. So in my creations you will always see a little bit of me! I've characterize my line as having an organic flair, kind of "raw" if you will. You will see that things do not always look "perfect" and that is on purpose to give it that organic feel or the whimsical feeling.
Well that is how this third baby of mine was born! I am super excited (you will hear me say that alot) about what is next! I will be starting some awesome monthly giveaways here on my blog!!! In the next week or so I will be posting the giveaway and all you need to do is leave me a comment to get entered! I also have a FB page if any of you are on there just search out Earthy Elegance and become a fan too! Between here and there you cannot miss out on the "goings on"! On my Facebook page I also post when I am having sales on my etsy site or couponcodes for free shipping, etc.
