Can it be helped? Jewelry is sexy. People who wear it are sexy. I’m in a sexy business. It’s a great place for a hopeless freakin’ romantic to be. Ha.
There’s a saying “Any piece of clothing can be sexy with a quietly passionate woman inside it”. The same applies for jewelry.
Sexy, how, you ask?
Think back, boys… That flash of silver on the curve of her neck when you kissed it. The flutter of an eyelash atop her beautiful eyes. The earrings that brought out the color of those eyes and rustled as she let you whisper in her ear “I love you” for the first time, while you tried to decipher if her eyes were really more of a blue or green, brown or hazel.
The pretty jewels that sparkled and drew you in as you looked…there… hoping she didn’t notice, because you just couldn’t help yourself. This is why jewelry is sexy. This is why men don’t buy jewelry for a woman they’re seeing unless they think she is “IT” all caps, exclamation point, hot, hot, hot personified. Because they know once they do that…they’re making a statement. All they see is you. All they want to see is you. And you are more than enough.
As a jewelry designer, I don’t just make jewelry, I make love happen. Passion, excitement, attraction. Hey- somebody’s got to do it. And it’s a fun job. My full line can be found online at
Ladies, I always say I want the beauty of a woman to be seen first before any piece I may design. The jewelry is only to accentuate the individuality of every woman. That’s why I love making custom pieces. Working with color and texture fascinates me. Simple, sensual, beautiful stones. I never make anything that’s overwhelming. Many of my pieces can be grouped together and layered.
When you receive a gift of jewelry from a man it’s him saying “I want you, I love you, and that won’t go away anytime soon”. When you purchase it for yourself, it’s you saying “Look out, world, here I am. I look fantastic. Make way. I take no prisoners.”
It’s fun hearing stories about what happened to women when they were wearing something I created. People tell me how they met their new boyfriend, or better yet…married their husband… while wearing my jewelry. They got the job they really wanted. They got compliments all day. They tell me I must have put some kind of spell on the jewelry, because they met someone special the first time they put it on. Some people think that because I touched it they get my good vibes. I don’t know if any of that is true, it sounds silly, but it makes me happy to make them happy. What I really think is when you look good, you feel good. And good things happen.
Of course, I also hear stories of how the very interesting ways the jewelry, can, ahem, can get broken. I have a “no questions asked” repair policy. Most of all I hear…”Sueanne…He really loves your jewelry on me”. “No”, I say, “It is you he loves”. The jewelry is just a sweet frosting on a delicious cake. And that is you. A beautiful woman, inside and out.
I wish you a happy, happy, sexy Valentine’s Day.
