Sweet Clover Jewelry...Make a Wish!

One of my New Year's resolutions is to accessorize more. The earrings & necklaces I own are small and dainty. How small? Like, pearl small. Seriously, I usually wear my little pearl earrings & necklace and I'm out the door. HaHaHa Well I knew if I wanted to update my look, I would have to make some changes. Pearls are great, but there are MANY MORE options out there!

I was reading blog posts during the Thanksgiving holidays, and one of my readers featured Shelli Poole of Sweet Clover Jewelry. Her jewelry is very pretty, she carries a lot of statement pieces and a pair of earrings caught my eye. So I went to her Etsy Shop and found out the earrings came in different colors. The "colors" I liked were black and smoke, but I couldn't decide which one I wanted. I only wanted to purchase one pair, because I wasn't sure how that particular style would look on me. While deciding, I introduced myself to Shelli via her blog (Sweet Clover Living which is super fun fabulous) and mentioned I would be purchasing a pair, but hadn't decided on whether to purchase them in black or smoke.

I finally decided to purchase them in black and placed my order. The mailman came a couple of days later, dropped off the package and when I opened it, my mouth dropped. Shelli sent BOTH PAIRS OF EARRINGS! How awesome and fabulous is that? I couldn't thank her enough. Thank You AGAIN Shelli! You SHINE and SPARKLE from the inside out! Not only do I LOVE my new earrings, but I thought the packaging was equally fabulous! I LOVE POLKA DOTS AND THE COLOR PINK!

So before you SHOP...
1. I encourage you to support & shop from bloggers like Shelli.
2. I encourage you to support women entrepreneurship & businesses and 
3. I encourage you to shop small businesses & local for your area. 
The money goes straight to them, you get a fabulous product and in my case an awesome new blog buddy.
Have A Great Weekend Everybody!

What lovely earrings, and such a nice gift as well! I hope that you wear these often and they help you stick to your resolution Kim :)

So nice that she sent you two pairs :)

The earrings are fabulous and the black ones look amazing on you!

I'm absolutely with you on the shopping front: I try to support small, independent businesses as much as possible (hence the "little shops" tag on my blog) and even buy food where possible from small specialists. Not always cheaper than the supermarket, but better quality and more personal.

Have a lovely weekend xo

The earrings are marvellous!! You look gorgeous in them, they really suit you!! And, I agree...shop small businesses first, there are many out there on etsy, ebay and in your own home towns, they should get your business first. And, I'm all for women run businesses too (though you know this ;) Will have myself a look too! Have a wonderful weekend doll!! xox

You are so spot on with this post, Kim! I'm trying to make more of a conscious effort to shop from smaller, emerging lines, both in effort to support new businesses and make my wardrobe unique. Your chandelier earrings from Shelli's shop was just gorgeous - I can't wait to see what other accessory experiments you'll be doing this year!

I think it's a great idea to accessorize more. I wear most of my jewelry on the weekends.

These earrings are totally cute!

Those earrings are so pretty. I love shopping at small businesses or small online shops - it is nice to know someone handmade something

I don't even have my ears pierced, so you can probably guess where accessorizing is on my priority list. Really, I like to just have 4-5 really nice, classy necklaces that I can wear with pretty much everything.

Shelli's jewelry looks really cute, though.

those are so pretty

Kim! You know how much I love accessories. You go girl! Really pretty earrings. I've been lazy and wearing just studs lately, you just inspired me. Have a great weekend!

Hi Kim, I love that you feature the creativity of fellow bloggers, there are some amazing talents out there, like Sweet Clover Jewellery, these earrings are so pretty, just my style

Peet said...

Wow, that was really nice of her! Great earring too.;)

Irene said...

What a nice surprise to get two gorgeous pair of earrings instead of one :)
I actually like the smoke ones more, as they seem more versatile and the black ones might look too draatic during the day. But maybe I'm stuck in an accesorize rut just like you, as I haven't worn any other thing than my button pearl earrings in the last years!

Kaja Koster said...

Unknown said...

Love these Kim - the black ones are fab :) I used to wear earrings, but lately I don't really wear much jewelry - only really my rings:)
Hope your weekend is great and fun.

That's definitely 2 beautiful pairs which you've chosen. I like how it just hang and it look gorgeous on you. Simple and beautiful =)

Imogen said...

These earrings are lovely, just so beautiful. I want to accessorise more too.

Jo said...

It is lovely of Shelli to send you 2 pairs of earrings when she knew about your consideration. It is people like this that truly touches the customer at the emotional level.

You look good in the earrings. They are of the right size. Not to big, not too small.

BTW, when I scrolled this post, the polka dot background of the 1st 3 pictures seem to have an optocal illusion effect. The box and dots seem to be moving!

Anne said...

love the earrings kim! I always try to support local business ... it is so important for the survival of our town. I hate to see shops closing and remaining empty. Hope you had a great weekend!
