We all have a story to tell, don’t we? Of course since none of us actually have the time to tell everyone our story one by one, we opt instead to express ourselves in the simplest way possible…our style. To me, there is nothing more expressive than the style of jewelry we wear and how we wear it. Jewelry is personal. Very personal. The color, the texture, the material, the craftsmanship…each and every facet of a piece of jewelry helps us to add to that story about ourselves. Who are we? What inspires us? What do we carry with us with through our every day?

At our one year anniversary, I wanted to give my wife a handmade gift that expressed a continued promise of the day we were first married. I wanted something that exuded exquisiteness. Something that was both delicate and bold. A piece of jewelry that would last lifetimes. When I finally gave her that gift…she felt nothing could’ve expressed that continued promise better than the Todd Reed ring I gave her that day.

It’s richness, it’s boldness, it’s colors, it’s brand…they all tell a story while sitting on my wife’s hand. That ring speaks volumes about her strength, her colorful nature and her unique style. It tells everyone who sees it that she’s one of a kind and unapologetically a purveyor of finer things. So what’s your story? And how do you plan on telling it?

A day in the life of ArtfullyElegant.com includes inventorying and photographing jewelry. Of course when you run your business from home, that simple task can end up being a lot more complicated than it sounds. This morning I spent an hour frantically looking for jewelry that I had placed on the table yesterday to photograph in the midday sun. Even my wife Neha joined the search but to no avail. And that’s when it hit us…apparently the 2 year old likes jewelry too.

Last night my little lovely Miss Kira was “helping” both of us with getting the house together. By “helping” I of course mean that she placed her toys in the refrigerator while we put groceries away, she threw important documents in the recycling container, and sat on the dishwasher door to take the load off her feet. Could the little monkey have grabbed the bag of newly purchased Dogeared necklaces and put it somewhere never to be found again? I’m pretty sure that the answer to that question is yes.

Over the past couple of months, Kira has gone from a baby trying to find her stride to a well oiled short distance runner. Honestly her speed and agility seem only to be likened to Steph Curry on the basketball court. So when my wife and I came up short looking for that jewelry it became very clear who the culprit was going to be.

That being said the suspect is not talking. When I asked her if she took the jewelry and where she put it she said “yeah”, followed by very confident point to the socks that were on her feet. I’m pretty sure that I’m not gonna get much more information out of her either. Maybe the jewelry will turn up…and maybe it won’t. Either way, I decided to let the theft of the Dogeared necklaces slide. Besides, her cuteness makes it hard to be angry with her anyhow.

The last few months have been full of some amazing transitions. We closed our brick and mortar gallery in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and shifted our focus towards ecommerce. Having operated a fine art gallery since 2003, this transition has been a bittersweet one. While it was time for Artfully Elegant to grow beyond the confines of a retail space, it is strange to have left behind the day to day operations that go into owning a gallery. But to be honest, it is something that we are getting used to. After all, now that the website’s new home is in Boulder, Colorado, we have a hard time imagining ourselves anywhere other than here. It seems that the never ending sun and larger than life mountains have a way of softening the substantial changes that come from a transition such as this.

Now that www.ArtfullyElegant.com is the new home of our gallery, we have plan to focus more on our most dedicated followers than ever before. Be sure to look for us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest for updates to our collection and special sales events. And thank you for being a part of Artfully Elegant’s past, present and future. Talk with you soon.

Bija Malas is more than just beautiful beaded jewelry. If you are looking for something to connect you to a more centered purpose, to have a deeper meaning, or to just provide you with a tangible piece of positivity, then these beads may be just what you are looking for.

2

Bija Malas started in 2011 in a little corner of jewelry designer Iris Sutalo’s living room. What started as a small circle of sales to close friends has budded into a flourishing business with beads selling in a variety of locations including jewelry stores, boutiques, and yoga studios.

But what is it about these beads that make them so special? That question has many answers. For one, each piece is made with 108 beads. The significance of the number has multiple meaning including ‘one, none and all.’ It is also said that each person has 108 emotions, and that there are 108 marma points in our body.

1

A mala is specifically a tool used to help with prayer or meditation while looking beautiful to keep you reminded of that. So by having a gorgeous piece of beadwork close to you, you’ll always remember the deeper meaning that it represents. It is also said by many that meditation is one of the best ways to help in a variety of ways, and these beads are an addition to a ritual that many have found positive results with.

So if you would like to add an addition to your spiritual routine, need a piece of positive vibe, or just want a gorgeous new addition to your jewelry box, check out Bija Mala. Who knows, you might just find the perfect piece that speaks just to you.

Find them here at Artfully Elegant.
