I have been MIA from the blog and social media in general for the past week or so. My day job (dance director at a high school) kept me non stop busy this past couple of weeks. I will have to admit it’s always fun “work” though. I know, I talk about my teaching job a lot, but I just love it!
On a different note but still something that I love so much, I want to introduce you all to KJDesignLove. This is a personally owned jewelry business owned by Kim Jackson. Speaking with her over the last couple weeks, she is the sweetest woman ever! She is so passionate for what she does and it shows in her jewelry pieces.
The first piece, which I am so excited to show you, is this 14k gold fill ring. This piece is so versatile and I love that I have been able to match it with multiple outfits already. I feel like the simplicity of the ring allows you to pair with almost anything.
Yes, I know, It’s beautiful! Right when I took this out of the extremely cute and elegant packaging that this was sent in, I was all heart eyes for it. This lariat necklace was made out of 14k rose gold fill. Kim says she works with 14k gold fill a lot because it has more gold than gold plating and won’t fade over time. Not to mention, the gold fill is more affordable than 14k gold.
All of KJDesignLove pieces are hand made and self created. Her eye for these pieces is amazing and she really does capture what will look best on someone. KJDesignLove philosophy is to maintain simplicity in design as well as looking minimal and delicate.
Kim says “I love to metal-smith, solder, and hammer all of my pieces myself and by hand. I incorporate semi-precious stones in my work as well.”
This might sound crazy, but I don’t have my ears pierced and wasn’t able to show off her earrings. When I was first looking through all her pieces, her earrings stood out and I honestly considered running to the mall to get them pierced! But, I am too chicken to do it! I highly recommend checking them out. They are gorgeous!
You can find KJDesignLove on Instagram and from there she has a link to her website. Most of her jewelry selection can be found right off her IG! Go to KJDesignLove on Instagram to follow and check out all of her astonishing pieces.
Have a wonderful rest of the week and remember send out positive vibes only!
