wear the jewelry - keep the card - tell the story
Happy DECEMBER FIRST!!! This is bound to be a good month because it's my favorite month of the year. In honor of my favorite month and my birthday and Christmas I want to share an awesome place for you to find gifts for the ladies in your life this year! Dear Mushka is a brand with a beautiful story and I'm super excited to be sharing it with you. If Dear Mushka pieces aren't the perfect gift for the ladies in your life this Christmas, then I don't know what is!
Mushka was the nickname of founder and designer Katie Lewis - given by her mother during childhood. First a blog, Katie hoped to share wisdom (as her mother had shared with her) and love through her writing to her future "mushkas". Then in 2013, to raise money for her "first and adopted child", Katie began to create jewelry: "It very literally became a love letter to our mushka as I worked over each necklace and said a prayer for his or her little life. Likewise, the idea of women telling their stories via blog transferred into women telling their stories in a new way. I recognized that what we chose to put on everyday was a personal decision; we were laying it close to our hearts or across our wrists and letting it say something. Why not let it tell our stories? I learned so much about running a business during this time and, though not without mistakes, found my small voice."
Each piece of jewelry is designed with a specific verse of scripture in mind and comes with the verse on a card that you can keep in your purse or somewhere on display for you to remember and keep on your heart. Katie's hope for the jewelry is that it will encourage you to share your story, or spark a genuine conversation about "the greatest love story the world will ever know". How amazing is that?!
Check out their website to see all of their jewelry - they also have apparel, art, and more - all beautiful!
This post was in collaboration with Dear Mushka, however all thoughts & opinions are genuine. I think this brand brings something beautiful to jewelry and I hope you love it as much as I do!
