What catches your eye with jewelry?

We all enjoy certain pieces of jewelry that we own. Sometimes it's that clay or macaroni piece made by our kid. It might be a sentimental piece that our spouse brought home and gave us on a special day. Maybe it has no sentiments attached at all, but is just a piece we like to wear because it is pretty.

When I dress to go out, I love to wear nice pieces of jewelry. I happen to like more vintage pieces, but like my outfits my jewelry is of all different natures. My aunt passed away about 6 years ago now, and I inherited  her jewelry box. There was no expensive jewelry but a great collection of paste jewels and faux pearls which I love to wear with my vintage looking dresses. I also have simple cord and beaded things, more in a boho style for when I wear my long skirts and loose tops. I pretty much have a piece of jewelry for any occasion.
Jewelry, like make up, just makes me feel good about myself. Who doesn't love to get compliments about the way they look or what they are wearing?

I came across this website called 7 Charming Sisters and it has so many types of beautiful jewelry. I happen to love their Victorian line but they have so many collections to enjoy. It is one of those sites that I had to bookmark to make sure I didn't lose where it is on the internet. One of the things that really struck me about their company is that many of their handmade pieces are done by people with disabilites. Those jewelry makers earn commissions on each piece of their jewelry that sells. I am not only buying a fab piece of jewelry for my collection, I am helping someone earn a living by my purchase. It just appeals to my sense of humanity.

I hope you go check out their site and maybe even make a purchase. You will not only get a stunning piece of jewelry that you will be proud to own, you will be helping a disabled artist make a living.
