Why We Love One Of a Kind Sea Horse Jewelry!

November 30, 2015 10:35:09 AM EST


I’ve always been attracted to seahorses. Named for their equine appearance, seahorses swim up right and have a curved horse like neck and head. Fossils have been discovered dating back 13 million years ago. Sadly, the seahorse population is now considered endangered due to over fishing and loss of habitat. Our own Mote Marine in Sarasota, Florida, breeds seahorses and is working to restore coral reefs.



Interestingly, the male seahorse takes on the majority of the reproductive responsibilities. What a guy! After an extended courtship, the male receives the eggs and carries them to birth. Seahorse pairs stay together through the breeding season.



I love to incorporate these beautiful seahorses in my Sea Life Beach Jewelry collection. Their story is told in a design of the sea surrounded by the hues of the ocean colored stones of larimar, aquamarine, blue topaz, accented with pearls, mother of pearl or the striking colors of peach and red coral. The stones are handcrafted in .925 sterling silver to create wearable art jewelry seahorse necklaces, bracelets and pendants.

How to Boost Your Retail Sales with Designer Jewelry

September 29, 2015 3:43:26 PM EDT

By adding a Designer jewelry line to your store inventory, you can increase your financial margin per square foot of your retail space. Some suggestions:

1. Carry Unique, Designer Jewelry
Invest in designer jewelry that has a consistent “look” but offers new collections to keep your customers coming in to see “what’s new?” A designer jewelry line should come with a story or biography of the designer. Designer jewelry branding is important to the customer to feel a connection with the creative process of the one of a kind jewelry. Designer jewelry brands with consistent quality increases customer confidence and keep them coming back for more. You can drive sales while building friendly relationships by keeping customers updated on the latest designer jewelry collections.


2. Display in a Jewelry Case
You can boost sales by adding a designer jewelry case near the checkout location in your store. It doesn’t take a lot of space, yet will generate sales to customers who love designer jewelry for themselves or to give as a special gift. When a customer asks to see the jewelry out of the case, the salesperson has an opportunity to interact with the customer and to present the story behind the one of a kind jewelry. A well designed jewelry display case also provides a level of security for the jewelry.

Display Case

3. Invest in Fine Designer Jewelry
Jewelry made with precious metals (sterling silver, gold, etc...) and genuine gemstones will always have a market worth as opposed to costume jewelry. Sterling silver jewelry is affordable and allows designers to create art jewelry collections with gemstones in the latest trends for a brand new look. One of a kind sterling silver jewelry also goes well with gold and platinum, giving your customers an opportunity to mix and match their jewelry collection. By offering a quality designer silver jewelry line in your store, you will increase your percentage of sales per square foot of your retail space with a relatively small investment.

August 27, 2015 10:38:59 AM EDT

What kind of jewelry do you wear to the horse races and gala? Equestrian jewelry of course! Beginning in 1864, Saratoga Race Course is regarded as the oldest sporting venue in the USA. One of my favorite race/equestrian museums is the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. Located in Saratoga, NY, this gem is just around the corner from the historic Saratoga Race Course. Here you will find an fabulous collection of horse race paintings, sculptures, photos, artifacts, and memorabilia documenting the race history of eighteenth century to the present history of Thoroughbred racing in America. Their largest fundraiser is the yearly gala.

Attending both the races in Saratoga, NY and the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame Gala, my girlfriends, Jaymie Klauber and Renee Strickland wore their Chris Bales equestrian pendants to every event. Jaymie designed her own personal horse charm necklace using the sterling silver oval collar and her ever expanding collection of Elligators silver equine pendants to create her own one of a kind equestrian charm necklace. Needless to say, their necklaces were a hit with the horsey set.
