vdaydisp4 vdaydisp3vdaydisp7 vdaydisp2 vdaydisp5 vdaydisp6

Romance is in the air! People tend to have mixed emotions toward this holiday… It has become over commercialized and a lot of folks feel it is a bit excessive. But, and that is a big BUT… it doesn’t have to be cheesy or showy. It is after all a day to celebrate love! Love in every shape and size is a wonderful thing to celebrate! Get together with the ones you love whether it be your spouse, your special some one, your kids, or even your dog and do something fun! Do something to celebrate life, love and happiness! It doesn’t have to revolve around dinner reservations and a big showy display of affection! Take a walk, go for a picnic, pick some wild flowers, watch the sunset and share a laugh! It is a great thing to show appreciation and consideration for the ones we care about! This holiday isn’t a time to be cynical, it is however a great excuse to be thankful and SHOW YOUR LOVE!

…where are the cowgirls at?…

horsebeauty2

stableshoot111

Every woman has a cowgirl side, whether its out there in the open or some where deep inside their heart.

Because being a cowgirl is about so much more then just riding horses, and knowing the lay of the land. It’s about the strength that comes from the soul, as tough as boot leather when times get rough. Having humility from knowing you’re just a small part of a much grander plan. It is when a woman feels a wide open space and is comfortable with where she stands.

(Pictured above is our ‘Cowgirl at Heart Necklace‘…)

cowgirlnecklaces123

These pieces were all influenced by a love for the country and the majestic beauty of horses… perfect necklaces to show off your inner cowgirl spirit. Free as an unbridled horse running wild.

cowgirlcolo1

The is so much inspiration to be found in the country life style, from the iconic lucky horseshoe symbol, to the classic mantras of old time cowgirls… like, “worship your wild soul“…. “always saddle your own horse” and so many more… sayings to live by and learn from!

XO

PS. Always remember to always embrace your inner cowgirl

…postcards from hilton head…

Island Cowgirl Hilton headWe have the best customers. Yesterday I received a beautiful, heartfelt email from someone just reaching out to me in a random act of kindness. To let me know what Island Cowgirl means to her…and I am reminded again why I do what I do.

It is so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day chores of running a business and everything that goes into it…that sometimes we feel disconnected from what really matters. This is a common theme among my artist friends & I. We talk about this a lot. A LOT.

It meant the world to me that she took a tiny piece out of her day to write such a sweet email…and it pulled me back into the now, the present & reminded me that living in the moment is ever so infinitely important…so much so that I could almost smell the salt air and sun on my toes on that beach in Hilton Head.

Here is her letter:

Hi Gals! 
I feel like we’re old friends now!
Thank you for ALL the wonderful jewelry; it makes me happy, everyday, to pick out my outfits based on the Island Cowgirl bling I’m wearing;) (and inspires me in my own work). I feel genuninely uplifted and joyful, wearing your pieces.  They are truly filled with VERY beautiful energy…thank you!  Enjoy the photo, taken from Hilton Head Beach, my neck of the woods on the opposite coast;) (starfish anklet). Peace & Blessings.

Thank you Sherry! You made my day.

…mother’s love…

HOMEISWHEREMOMIS

We’re quickly approaching Mother’s day, the ultimate Thanksgiving for our favorite women.

It is one of the few constant truths in life that nothing can be brought into this world with out a Mother. They are not only the giver of our life, but also our original mentor, caregiver, and guide in this world.

We have the perfect gift to help you say, “thanks” to Mom this Mother’s day.

Our “Love Always Bracelet” is the perfect representation for the unconditional type of love between mother and child.

lovealwaysbrace1

Everything we are, would cease to exist without our Mother’s who brought us into this world.
