Momma Told Me: It's not the size of the sparkle, but the spark behind it.I've always been an eclectic mix of tomboy and girly girl. When I was in kindergarten I'd often get into fights over the Pretty Princess silver tiara, simply because it was the most coveted (I'd never be caught wearing it). My love of all things sparkly has only blossomed through the years. I adore sparkles, glitz, and glam; but don't care much for wearing it. Let's face it, Diamonds may pay the mortgage, but they won't keep me arm at night. Retract that, I could buy a dozen down comforters with said theoretical diamonds, but I'd still be alone. You get the point; I've stressed time and again (as nice as sparkly things are) the jewelry I actually pull out of my jewelry box to wear is often a unique statement piece that will garner compliments and turn heads. So many women get caught up in karats and cuts, when I feel if I were to receive a safety pin bracelet from my special man, it would be far more meaningful.
Luckily accessorizing doesn't have to come to that. Most men feel lost when buying jewelry for the women in their lives. It seems every holiday I am called to help my father wade through a sea of jewelry for his mother, sister in law, or girlfriend. As lost as the poor man seems, I am often just as much confounded. Gifting jewelry is an intimate thing. To do this successfully you must know a little something about the person being gifted, and their style. Or you can skip the long line of cookie cutter pendants from Kay Jewelers and gift something handcrafted and truly unique. Jilzara, which arguably sounds more like a mythical lizard monster, exists to satisfy the whimsy in every woman. With handcrafted premium clay beads, no piece is ever truly identical, and all are limited edition. I recall messing around with polymer clay and bead layering as a teenager, but Jilzara blows my humble attempts out of the water.Jilzara encounter that sent me online to explore a little more.
What Daughter Says: I adore the girly prints and frilly patterns of Jilzara's handmade premium beaded jewelry!
