Our Summer Picks for Jewelry

We're ready for summer - you?  Here's our picks for summer fun with your jewelry!

Okay - Pearls, first (of course, right!?!)

Wear pearls mixed with chains for a light and airy feel. Pearls mixed with chain and other stones are so hot right now! Long, short, either way is fine, just make sure it compliments your outfit and doesn't over power it. Too much is never a good thing,....really,......even with pearls!


Color - Summer always seems to burst with color so layering on some Gold, Silver, Copper and even base metal brass chains are sure to keep this color thing in check for quite awhile. Mixing in some natural stones, some clear quartz (which is ultra hot again folks!) is always a great way to show off or liven up those colors you love wearing!

Speaking of color, THE HOT COLOR for summer(and possibly fall if you ask us) is TURQUOISE - yep, Turquoise. We said it a bit earlier this year and it's true - and oh so lovely. Living in Arizona we see not only the color turquoise a lot, but the actual stone as well, and it's anything but drab and old!  Try mixing some neutral colors with your tuquoise jewelry and then adding a punch of deep red, lively lime green or punchy peach - it'll make your summer designs pop with color and spunk.

Summer screams silver to us here at MiShel Designs - light, airy designs in silver that you can wear during the day and easily take into the hot, sizzling nights are a must have!   Try some silver bangles, silver stackable rings and awesome silver hoops or other eye-catching earrings - they'll take you effortlessley from your fun lunch with the girls to that special night out on the town with style and sophistication!

Lighten up and have fun with your jewelry this summer - it's easy, it's fun and it's beautiful!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Great Summer Jewelry!!
Cheers,

Happy Mother's Day

On the night before Mother's Day I wanted to send a shout out to all the Mama's out there who do so much for their families and yes, their friends, too!

I enjoy being a mom and feel I'm blessed with an amazing child. To me, being a mom is one of the best things in the world!!
A month before my 4th birthday, I lost my Mom to cancer. I don't remember my Mom,...not really. I remember all the wonderful stories my brothers, sister and my Aunts have told me through the years about her and believe I missed out big time on knowing an amazing woman. (That's me over there sitting on my Mama's lap with my brother's and sister)

I can't complain though because I have a step-mom, who, although we didnt' really see eye to eye when I was growing up, was the mom I was dealt and believe she did a pretty good job of teaching me the things I needed to learn and I have her to thank for many things.

I also have some 'stand in' moms,....

There's my sister, Marsha, my sister-in-laws, Cheryl and Jeanie, my friend, Gwen, and my Aunt Ruby, Aunt Doris and Aunt Peg. And then there were my friends mom's, who I called Mom just like they did.

Sadly, some of these women have passed as well, but I still think of them and remember them with gratitude tomorrow,...Mother's Day.

So, for all the Mom's who have, or had, children of their own and for all the "Moms" who've been there when you needed a shoulder, when you needed a good talking too, or when you just needed a Mom's point of view - Thank You!

Happy Mother's Day!

Until Next Time,

Peace, Love and Great Mama's!!

Cheers,
