Oh how I love to create. I love the process, I love the collaboration, I love the outcome. Creating has always been part of my DNA. From my obsession with photography at a young age to redecorating my teenage bedroom with my mom, “arts and crafts” are my jam. And the creative process for me is part of all aspects of my life – digital design, interior design, styling my outfits, creating meals from scratch, designing my daily schedule, styling spaces at church, creating moodboards for clients, accessorizing my look with various pieces of jewelry and the list goes on.
And speaking of jewelry. I may or may not have an obsession with jewelry. Vintage pieces from my grandmother. Bold J Crew statement necklaces. Dainty pieces to layer. Chunky rings. Studs. Hoops. Bangles. Gold, silver, colorful. Classic, trendy, timeless. From Tiffany to Forever 21, my jewelry style runs the gamut.
There are two things I love most about jewelry. First, no matter what you’re wearing or how you feel, you can change the look of an outfit or bring your meh mood to energetic by throwing on a couple pieces of jewelry. It transforms and can become a showstopper. Or it subtly reminds you of a person or a moment or a time in your life. Second, the versatility of jewelry. I love that I can be wearing a t-shirt and jeans or a fitted black dress for a cocktail party and wear the same pieces of jewelry. There are no rules, only your own.
Thus, when my sweet and smart friend,Alex, contacted me to design some pieces for her company, Julbox, it was an automatic yes yes yes! I’ve spent the last couple of months dreaming and designing and getting a few special pieces ready to launch and sell to YOU. I will be rolling out 5 necklaces over the next couple of weeks and my first one is ready for the taking! And the best part is this: Everything ships for free. The price point is under $30. Everything is made to order. I am donating 100% of my commission (still working out the details of to whom/to what organization). The quality is amazing. And the designs are uniquely created by yours truly.
Now, without further ado, please welcome one of my personal favorites in my collection…The Best is Yet to Come! I hope you love it as much as I do. If you have any questions, let me know.
In related news, Julbox is an incredible startup based in Tel Aviv and I SO encourage you to open up your own digital shop as well! You can design your own collection – everything from necklaces to bracelets to earrings. It’s very fun, inspiring and I can’t say enough good things about the quality of their jewelry, especially at the price point. And because I love all of you, you can get 15% off your pieces when you open up your own shop. Just use code ann15.
P.S. You can follow me on Instagram to keep in touch on the rest of the pieces and because we should just be friends there anyways. He he he. Plus, you may get your first Julbox piece for FREE! Hint, Instagram contest coming your way 🙂
