What's hanging around your neck?

This morning I was at photographer Zoe's studio in Encinitas getting some headshots taken (with a 3 and 1 year old in tow.. whew!) and I got to see some of her beautiful custom jewelry firsthand.

Admittedly I'm not really into "bling" (I wear the same gear every day - watch, plain wedding ring, diamond earrings and pendant to match, Tous boy charms around my neck with my "diamond" Steve in the middle to keep me sane!)

But I love the idea of making even the most basic accessory have meaning. It could be my excuse for not having much variety, my special pieces are all I need and I'm able to coordinate with whatever basic outfit I pull together! Yes, I'm the first in line for the upcoming class with a stylist, I know I need it!

Check out Three Sisters Jewelry and somebody please tell me what song that is playing on her site -- love it! I'll try to remember to ask Zoe and post here whenever I find out...

THE TIP: Create your own heirloom piece; who ever knew that just selecting initials or typeset would make you feel so creative or beautiful when wearing your timeless piece?! What kind of custom jewelry have you all created?

I engraved a watch for my husband and it was his wedding present -- our wedding dat is included in the engaving so he never forgets it! We joke about that a lot, but I know he loves it :)

No idea what the song is, like it too. No idea about jewelry, my wife just tells me what Tiffanys or Nordstrom piece to suprise her with!
