Season of Gratitude

Season of Gratitude

Now that I'm finally adjusting to the Daylight Savings Time change and the stunning autumn weather in Chicago is beginning to wane, it is starting to feel like winter is on its way - which is not always a bad thing :)  Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays - as we enter into the end of the year it gives me an opportunity to reflect on all which I am grateful for in this past year. My company has grown in ways I never could have dreamed of eight year ago.  I am so fortunate to be able to...

Before & After - Ex Uno Plures

Before & After - Ex Uno Plures

  In an inverse of the motto of the United States "E Pluribus Unum" meaning "from many - one", our most recent Before & After project is an example of "Ex Uno Plures" meaning "from one - many."   Our customer came to us with her heirloom cultured pearl necklace, a gift she received for her Sweet Sixteen.  Nearly forty years later, she was ready for an updated necklace yet wanted to create something meaningful to pass down to her young nieces as well. The original pearl necklace was tapered meaning that the largest pearl is in the front with...
