Everyday Earrings

When I'm writing product descriptions for the store or talking with people about Marjorie Baer Jewelry, I often use the term everyday or go-to especially to describe the earrings. I sometimes worry that people will interpret that as pedestrian or ordinary when what I mean is quite the opposite.

I, like most people, sometimes have trouble getting out the door in the morning. Whether its because I'm pressed for time or have a I-have-nothing-to-wear moment, I end up rushing around at the last minute. That's why its really great to have a couple of pairs of earrings that you know go with everything and are comfortable to wear all day. Its like having a great pair of jeans or a black handbag - it just makes things easier. You look put together when you get to work even if you had a frantic morning.

I know a lot of people who don't wear jewelry because its just another thing to think about and they don't have the time. But when the jewelry you have is super versatile and cool - putting it on is easy and gives you a boost. 

So that's what I mean when I say everyday - I mean that the style is versatile, modern, and makes getting dressed smooth an uncomplicated which is pretty great!

Lead-free and nickel-free jewelry

I feel like I've been hearing a lot lately about companies selling products that contain nickel and lead. Urban Outfitters and Fitbit have had issues with this recently. My reaction has simply been "What! Why?" At this point, it seems lazy and irresponsible to sell products that contain these metals.

Lead is sort of a no-brainer. Don't put it in things that touch your skin or that young kids could play with or put in their mouths. And nickel, while its not toxic and not nearly as dangerous as lead, is a very common skin irritant. Even if you are immune, would you want to gift someone an accessory that might give them a rash?

Most likely for these companies, its simply an issue of not overseeing production, wanting things made as cheaply as possible, and perhaps not realizing the consequences. But because we make everything ourselves, we have total oversight over the manufacturing process and only buy materials that we're sure are free of toxic metals. Our products are totally lead and nickel free - so you can feel comfortable wearing them and giving them as gifts.

 

Bracelet Stack

Love a haphazard stack of bracelets. This one has:

All these with a simple little chain bracelet: Awesome!

Painted Burlap Earring Holder

Burlap is perfect for a DIY jewelry display. The woven texture is made for hanging wire earrings. I thought I would paint it to not only change the color but also keep it from fraying. I just used some interior house paint I had lying around. It works great!

 

Here's a close up:

 

Ended up trying black and white. Both are pretty cool

Transition 2014 Collection

The new collection has come together! When I began to photograph these pieces, I couldn't quite wrap my head around how all the distinct themes would work as a group. It wasn't until I started to lay out the images in the catalog that I realized how well everything went together. Metal color, shape, and a strong yet feminine feel tie all these pieces together beautifully. Its almost hard to pick!

Some New Shots

 

Just shot some promotional images for Accessories the Show coming up in February. The background is layered mesh origami paper. I love the effect of the overlapping colors. 

Summer 2014

A selection of wire, clip on, and post earrings from the Summer 2014 collection
I just finished adding all the new pieces from the Summer 2014 Collection to the New Arrivals section of the store. I'm pretty much always impressed with new collections, but this one to me is really exceptional. 
The basic shape of most of the earrings and necklaces in this grouping is an organically inspired, rough, irregular ring. Its an interesting and unique shape on its own but here its layered, linked, and formed into a variety of new shapes, some delicate, some bold. 
The collection has a lot of variety. From classic clip on or post buttons to dramatic, sculptural drops. There are a lot of great go-to every day wire earrings as well. The necklaces too are really stunning. They use that basic ring shape and range from simple and sweet to big and bold. 
Take a look! Here Let us know what you think!
