Lot's of new things on the horizon! Maybe I'm inspired by the Azaleas blooming in my front yard or it's the white Dogwood blossoms, or maybe because Spring has finally arrived to Atlanta. Either way, it's spring time and I'm giddy!
The Beehive here in Atlanta has moved into this fantastic new location in Edgewood! If you're not familiar with Edgewood shopping district, head South on Moreland, just past Little 5 Points, and you'll come upon a new brick development. You'll see there's a Lowes, Best Buy, Target, Caribou Coffee, Willy's etc. We're located between the Wachovia Bank and Willy's. Just look for The Beehive!
I freaking love it! I love the new store, the white walls, the sunlight beaming in through 2 sides, and (drum roll please) my booth! Take a look. And by the way, we're celebrating our grand opening this weekend, April 16th - April 18th. If you want to enjoy some refreshments, come on down Friday evening from 6-10pm. However, I may not be there until later, with 2 kiddos at home it's bedtime hour...
If you're out and about this weekend, enjoying this awesome weather we're finally experiencing, and you need to cool off in the air conditioning, come visit The "new" Beehive. I know the Dogwood Festival is at Piedmont, so swing by on your way!
Where did Spring go? We went from "rain rain go away, come again another day"... to 90 degree weather in the matter of a day! I guess it's Summer now. Craziness...
In honor of Spring, and Denise's special order in Marietta, I made a Dove charm to add to my Peace/Heart Bracelet. I thought that it fits perfectly with Spring and Summer. And now that Spring/Summer is in full bloom, we've been inspired to add Leaf Necklaces to the line; check them out in silver and 14Kt gold-filled.
Also, Throwing Stars Jewelry is in a new store in Buckhead, Beth Ann Boutique. Below is a photo of Tiffany at Beth Ann wearing the new 14Kt Rose Gold-Filled Flower Necklace. Yay! And next to her on the black bust is the James Necklace.
I'm a working mom, so when it comes to designing jewelry, I need it to be wearable. I need to be able to grab and go when it comes to getting dressed in the morning. Most of the time, I'm running out the door with my hair still wet. There is still that part of me that craves being current and fashionable. Just because I'm a mom, doesn't mean I can't be cute, right! Throwing Stars Jewelry is meant to be easy to wear, yet sophisticated and makes an artistic statement at the same time. Even if all I can grab is a shirt and jeans, I can throw on a pair of earrings and a necklace, and at least look "put together".
In making my jewelry, I also make sure it includes a lot of hammering so it still has that shimmer, while it also has an organic and hand-made feel at the same time.
What began as a hobby at my dining room table, Throwing Stars Jewelry has become a mainstay at many Atlanta Boutiques, and now boutiques in Athens, St. Louis, and Mt. Kisco, NY.
