“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale
One of my favorite quotes, above and also one of the reason why I have two stars tattooed on my inner wrists to remind myself to aim for the stars. The other reason behind my tattoos symbolizes my love for each of my kids; they are my precious little stars, my sun, my everything. When Uncommon Goods reached out to me for a potential collaboration I immediately jumped on the opportunity because I have been a happy customer in the past for many of their unique gifts and the recipients or those gifts were equally happy.
Uncommon Goods feature unique jewelry, designer décor, tabletop items, and handcrafted gifts created in the USA and makes it their mission to support and provide a platform for local and emerging artists and designers. I loved their selection of handmade jewelries (you can find them HERE) and beautiful array of necklaces (seen HERE) all created in harmony of nature and environment and with great respect to the individual artists. One would find the story about the artists and the piece that was created featured on the website as well as on a note that is sent along with the pieces.
Artist Beth Lawrence created this stunning yet simple bracelet, along with a necklace and a pair of earrings, while she was pregnant with her first child. The reason I choose this modern and extremely meaningful piece is because it subtly represents the ineffably strong connection a mother shares with her child. The joined circles are evocative of the infinite connection we possess with the special people in our lives and a reminder that they’re always there for us as we carry on through life’s struggles and successes. I was moved by the powerful symbolism and immediately wanted this bracelet to be a part of my collection.
Back to my fondness for the stars, this star shaped sterling silver pendant with a brushed finish and dotted with a delicate, flush-set diamond for a touch of sparkle was created by Dana Reed. Her hand-forged jewelry is an effortless blend of sophisticated minimalism with a hint of urban edge; feminine and unique, this Wish Upon A Star necklace matches my personal style perfectly.
If you are looking for beautiful and hand crafted jewelry such as these here and unique gifts for your loved ones, I strongly suggest that you take a look into the sites of Uncommon Goods as you will be pleasantly surprised of the creative and fun pieces of treasures the site boasts. I really appreciate and thank you for supporting the brands and businesses that support my blog.
