Believe - Custom Beaded Jewelry with a genuine message

If you believe it, you can achieve it!

That is a saying that I firmly believe it.  It goes hand in hand with the power of positive thinking, eternal optimism and it is the motto of nearly every business person I've ever met.  Building a business is never a straight line.  Rather it would resemble a bowl of spaghetti if we had to be really honest about it.  And sometimes it's really just about the meatballs... but we won't talk about that here. :o)

So when my dear friend Kathy, a true entrepreneur asked me to design a special piece of custom beaded jewelry for an event she's participating in coming up in March, I let the beads talk!  After all, they are usually smarter than my logical brain, so the beads should have a bigger voice in the design.

What I created for Kathy exemplifies classic with a pop of modern.  I used a round donut and filled it with bavarian creme... oh wait, wrong dream.  I filled it with a Swarovski rivoli button so the bling in the middle is blinding!  Kathy loves sparkly pieces and if she's going to be on stage I want all eyes in the room on her!

I used the believe charm because it too says "Kathy" all over it!  Kathy is an incredible business woman, but even more importantly a loving mother, grandmother, wife and dear friend.  This is a woman that ran a lawn mowing service better than all the boys in her childhood!  Yes ma'am!  It's because Kathy operates from the heart and she's believes with all her might that she can achieve anything.  I can attest to knowing her for years, she can and DOES achieve anything she sets her mind to.

Now if you want to hear HOW she kicked all the boys butts, you have to read about it in a book she recently co-authored called "Smart Women Live their Why - How Women Entrepreneurs are Living on Purpose and In Passion" and it's a truly INSPIRATIONAL book!  Every woman in business should have this in their arsenal for support, encouragement and inspiration!

I BELIEVE we're going to have a fantastic week and I hope you'll join me in that outlook!
I know this piece is something Kathy will wear time and time again!

Thank you all so very much! Indeed, this piece is going to be very special for Kathy. She's a true gem of a gal, and I'm so happy Erin that you're taking a look at her book. I just love it and refer to it often for quick doses of daily inspiration!
