2019 is dawning…it’s time to think about our hopes, dreams and goals for the coming year.
It helps me to keep my New Year’s resolutions close and look at them often.
If you know someone who could do with a little extra motivation for 2019, take a look at our inspirational jewellery, designed to help us keep our mantras in mind.
Hand-stamped sterling silver bangles:
If you would like a customised bangle, we can hand-stamp your cherished phrase onto a handcrafted bangle just for you.
And we have a range of sterling silver bangles ready to go with some of our favourite inspirational phrases. Our top three are as follows:
One of the best-known motivational phrases of the past couple of years has been ‘Nevertheless she persisted’. Originating from an incident in the US Senate, when Senator Elizabeth Warren refused to be silenced, it has come to express female tenacity and is a reminder to women that our voices matter and that we have a right to be heard. This bangle is a very popular choice for our female customers.
One of our bestselling bangles is stamped with a a quote from the 2015 film version of Cinderella, ‘Have courage and be kind’. It’s the advice given to Cinderella by her dying mother and the mantra she lives her life by. The perfect piece of jewellery to remind us to stand up for what we believe in, whilst maintaining our sense of self and our kindness.
My personal favourite is the sterling silver bangle stamped with ‘A live lived in fear is a life half-lived’, from my all-time favourite film, Strictly Ballroom. This sparklingly kitsch film is all about having the courage to be yourself and dance your own steps. This quote reminds me never to be afraid to do my own thing.
For something a little daintier, we have a range of rings stamped with motivational words such as ‘dare to’, ‘dream’, ‘shine’. Our ‘live, laugh, love’ ring can be twisted around to reveal whichever word is most needed for that day.
And as with the bangles, we can make bespoke rings with the words, names or dates with meaning for you or your loved one.
Recently, we stamped a necklace for a customer's daughter with the words, 'be courageous, fall in love and laugh often' (see collage above).
And we know that mother's necklaces, stamped with the names of children are some of the most motivational jewellery we make. Wearing the names of our loved ones close to our heart reminds of us of them - and also reminds us why we do what we do. I have moments where touching my necklace stamped with my childrens’ names keeps me going!
Good luck with your New Year’s resolutions and wishing you a very happy and healthy 2019!
