Compliment your Rings & Bracelets with a Beautiful Home Manicure

Thursday, October 30, 2008

So many beautiful rings and bracelets to wear and complete your look, the accessory to this beautiful baubles is beautiful hands and nails. With more and more people saving money and the economy in a downturn, why spend the $20 for a manicure when you can take some me time and do it at home. You don't have to inhale massive amounts of fumes and for not a lot of coin you can have beautiful nails any diva would be proud to show off.

The following article is from

1. Remove any old nail polish.

2. Shape the nail, using a file or emery board. File each nail tip from corner to center; do not file in a see-saw motion with the emery board because doing so can cause ridges in the nail and nail splitting. By filing nails to a point...this will make nails weak. A rounded or square form is the strongest.

3. Soak the hands in warm, soapy water for a few minutes to remove dirt. This will also soften cuticles and make it easier to push cuticles back. Clean under free edge of nail with orangewood stick.

4. The cuticle is the skin that grows from the finger onto the base of the nail (nail root). Push the cuticle gently back. Leaving the cuticle intact helps to prevent infection of the nail growing tissue. NEVER cut cuticles! This can cause the nail to die if done improperly!
A weekly manicure can do wonders for your nails and cuticles. Not only will a weekly manicure promote faster nail growth, your nails will also become stronger with each manicure. Treat yourself and have a manicure professional done. The usual cost ranges from $10 upwards to $20, plus the manicurists' tip and the appointment lasts about 30-45 minutes with drying time. If going to the nail salon is not an option, opt to give yourself a manicure at home. Do it yourself Manicures, not only make your hands look great, they're easy to do!
Do it yourself manicure

5. Apply a base coat. We highly recommend calcium gel. This works wonders to help nails grow faster and hardens as well. Allow to dry for a minute or two. Next apply 2 coats of favorite polish. Then finish with a shine sealer. Allow nails to fully dry for at least an hour.

6. Finally, apply a moisturizing cream or lotion to the hands and cuticles. This will help prevent splitting of the nails.

    Earth to Bauble: Chapter 2 Turquoise

    Thursday, October 23, 2008

    Ahh the cool beauty of Turquoise. The universal appeal of this stone spans the centuries from ancient Egypt to our American Indian peoples and to the runways and catwalks for spring and summer fashions in particular.

    Here in Texas and the Southwest it is a staple in our wardrobes just as jeans are a must have. But what exactly is Turquoise? How is it processed from it's raw form to the beautiful and artistic pieces of jewelry we know and love.

    Turquoise is hydrated aluminum copper phosphate that often contains iron. It's name sake comes from the French pierre turquoise meaning "Turkish Stone" referring to trade routes from the east. It is a soft stone, softer than quartz and so when when manufacturers.considering using turquoise it is often process or stabilized in order to increase the strength of the stone.

    The diversity in color is due to it's location in the soil and the presence of other elements in the raw stone. The bandwidth of colors range from sky blue to a grey-green color.

    The striking blue color of turquoise is derived from the presence of copper in the soil, while the green color is a result of the presence iron or chromium.

    Turquoise has been mined for eons, since at least 6000 B.C. Early Egyptians wore the stone, and many turquoise pieces have been found in their tombs. The ancient Aztecs in Northern Peru used to decorate their ceremonial masks with this stone, which they considered holy. Persian philosopher Al Kazwini wrote that "the hand wearing a turquoise and using it as a sealing stone will never be poor." Turquoises were used to decorate turbans, often set in a border of pearls, to protect the wearer from the evil eye. The gemstone did not reach Europe until the Crusades.

    Turquoise is considered a stone of wholeness, promoting the sense of unity of the self and oneness with all that surrounds us. It is said to make one feel at home in both the physical and spiritual worlds. It also is believed to assist the absorption of nutrients while strengthening the immune system and stimulating tissue regeneration. Crystal healers recommend it for detoxification of alcohol, poisons or radiation. Turquoise is mined in the U.S.A. (Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico), China, Peru, Mexico, Persia (Iran), Tibet, Siberia, Africa, Australia and Europe.

    Information on Turquoise has been provided by The Gemstone Beads Index @ Rings &

    Purple in all it's splendor!

    Friday, October 17, 2008

    Ah, my favorite color is the rage for fall. PURPLE! The rich color of royalty and the beautiful color of grapes. It can be seen in everything this season from head to toe.

    New York Fashion week was blooming with the seductive hue, from eggplant to plum this color is number one!
    Perusing fashion magazines, I've seen purple tights on a model with a basic black dress and shoes. The purple was gorgeous. The other items that stood out in piece were her accessories all clad in gold accessory which matched the buckles in her shoes. The look was striking and so do able for the everyday woman.

    I found a beautiful Top at JCPenny now marked down to the super-affordable price of $14.99. It comes in the striking Grape color and i just had to list it. It's by Worthington and it made me think of one of the characters from the Jane Austen Book club movie, Prudie Drummond play by Emily Blunt who always wore chic clothing, because she was a french teacher and followed Coco Chanel to the letter rebelling from her hippy dippy mom.

    To go with that I would also pair the blouse with a sumptuous pair of purple shoes. Carlos Santana always seems to delight my fancy when it comes to a beautiful and sexy shoe. The shoe is called Bliss. At a bit of a cost for shoes on sale at for $98.10, these shoes have personality and still steep of traditional Mary Janes with the novelty of he double straps and the sexy attitude of the croco pattern and stacked platform.

    What's left when you have a great basic skirt in grey or black or even a basic pant to make it more like Katherine Hepburn? Accessories!

    For this classic look i would add the beauty of the Legend bracelet which comes in silver or gold tone and is Tiffany inspired bracelet sure to garner attention with out the loss in the pocketbook @ a retail value of $59 this bracelet is a save compared to the price of it's designer counterpart. It can also go home with you for $12 when taking advantage of the Customer purchase program.

    For something a little more full i would wear the Volume Bracelet with 9 connected bangles for that wonderful clinking sound every time the arm moves and the Unite Ring to compliment the layered look of the bangles.

    Also offered in the catalog which are some of my favorite pieces:

    The Signature set in amethyst, here is a picture of the ring. It is a truly stunning set. with a matching pendant, and stunning bracelet.Signature Ring- Amethyst

    Others of my favorites in purple are: The Rock On set:

    Gorgeous and huge amethyst on strands of glass beads and amethyst chip beads. Great for casual wear and the everyday.

    There are many more beautiful items to help you splash into purple for this season. I can help you get those items and your most expensive ones for $12. Host a party and you can get them for FREE and at half price! Look great, save money and enjoy the decadent flair of purple for this season!

    Earth to a beautiful Bauble: Chapter 1 Marcasite

    Monday, October 13, 2008


    Marcasite is a natural mineral used in jewelry. It is a light and brittle mineral that is often mistaken for pyrite. Pyrite and marcasite have the same chemical formula, but different crystal system, thereby making them two separate minerals. In jewelry, pyrite is used as a gem while marcasite is not. It is a mined stone and when used in jewelry, marcasite is cut and shaped very much like diamonds.

    To get that antique or vintage look that is very popular today, I would recommend for our Hostess the beautiful pin: Antiquity which can be yours for only $29 and is exclusive to the hostess only.

    Pages 70 and 71 of our catalog display our lovely collection of Marcasite you can look for the names of these lovely pieces:

    Renaissance(one of my personal favorites)

    Le Cabaret

    On our ring pages pages we have

    Reign (gorgeous on any right hand, pictured far left)
    Santa Cruz
    Antique Lace (immediate left ring)

    There is also the Dreamscape set which has a very jazzy 20's feel. It

    Saturday, October 11, 2008
    My second fashion love...the other piece that makes my outfit most days....SHOES!

    There are so many good looking shoes happening this fall season. My fave happens to be the heeled oxford. It has so many different looks but ultimately... the sexy librarian look is what I'm going for in this particular shoe.

    I found these:
    Priced at $49.00
    They are cute and will look good with a suit, skirt, or jeans. T.U.K online is where these lovely shoes can be found. Along with other interesting shoes to add personality to your wardrobe. With these i could see pairing them with the Ignite Bracelet which is classic yet has a chunky modern feel to it.

    What a way to blend the modern with the classic. Don't forget about a watch to keep yourself fashionably on time or just fashionably late: The Nightmoves Watch is a show stopper even while you have only five minutes to get to work and work is 15 minutes away.

    Caring for you beautiful Fashion Jewelry

    We love our beautiful baubles and bling but how do we make it last and how do we keep pieces shiny and new looking?

    When it comes to fashion jewelry care and some caution must be taken in order to ensure the longevity of our fabulous accessories. The one big thing that I noticed when wearing fashion jewelry is to make sure that your skin has not just been covered in lotion. I'm not saying that that one shouldn't moisturize to protect our hands and keep them looking nice, but give you skin some time to absorb and drink in the quench of lotion given before you wear your jewelry. Lotions can also cause a reaction with your skin and the metals if your skin has enough acidity. Try using a lotion that is dye free and perfume free, that way you can have moisturized limbs and still be able to comfortably wear your jewelry.

    I can't say enough about removing jewelry when doing household chores. We all know that cleaning chemicals have a harsh effect on our hands ( i personally use rubber gloves now so i can avoid dry hands), but the chemicals can also effect the jewelry we wear and can cause permanent damage. I loved the Kim and Aggie on How Clean is Your House on BBC who wear these uber fancy dish gloves with bows and feathers on them to make cleaning seem less daunting. My gloves are pink and purple. The color does seem more perky then the traditional yellow or the green I've seen out there. So now that we have beautiful cleaning gloves don't forget to place you jewelry in your jewelry box so that it's safe and chemical free.

    Here are some tips to help keep your jewelry sparkling:

    1. Place some pieces of white chalk in your box to keep silver from tarnishing.

    2. Purchase a cleaning cloth meant for the metal you wish to clean. Make sure they are lint free. These little cloths are wonders and make up-keep simple with no liquid chemicals or harsh smells.

    3. Do NOT use those harsh liquid dips or cleansers, these can do more harm than good. The chemicals can also burn your skin. Ultra sonic cleaners can also loosen your stones or break them.

    4. Use a soft brush or cotton swab to remove any dirt from rings where a cleaning cloth may not be able to reach.

    Your jewelry Box is not only a place to keep your jewelry it is the first defense in protecting your treasured baubles. I found a good article to help you choose a jewelry box:

    With the proper storage and cleaning of your jewelry, your collection can last for generations to come.
