One thing I love about my life as an itinerant actress/Mama is that I meet so many incredible people. Ten years ago, I was cast as a magician’s assistant in a play in Louisville, KY. The magician was played by an amazing actor and equally amazing guy named Rene. When you work out of town on a show, you become a close-knit tribe. Everyone in the production is away from spouses and boyfriends, siblings and pets, and the cast becomes your instant family. If you’re lucky, and really in this business you often are, you meet wonderful people. And then, as time passes and everybody’s loved-ones make the trip to see the show, you meet their equally wonderful families. And your show family grows. Ten years ago Rene and I were both more newly married, and I was so excited to meet his gorgeous and talented wife Sarah Jane when she came to visit. And now, here we are ten years later, with kids galore, both still happily married and both still pursuing this crazy life.
Sarah Jane is not only an accomplished singer and performer herself but also a talented jewelry-maker, and it’s my incredible honor to introduce you to her line of exquisite hand-stamped jewelry. Sarah Jane’s Etsy boutique, Life is Rosey: Jewelry That Speaks was named after her first child, Rosalee. You know I love promoting mom-created and mom-run small businesses and that’s exactly what Life Is Rosey Is. And Sarah Jane’s work is, to my eye, extremely special.
So what sets Sarah Jane’s hand stamped jewelry apart from the rest? Several things. First and foremost all of her silver pieces are 100% sterling silver. No silver base metals are included in her work. Her pieces are unique yet simple, delicate yet enduring, meaningful yet full of whimsy and fun. I just love the birthstones and charms she incorporates into some of her designs–so playful!
As Sarah Jane says in her Etsy Shop Announcement:
I create hand stamped necklaces, bracelets, earrings, personalized guitar picks, and golf ball markers from sterling silver, copper, bronze, and 14K gold filled. I love stamping out each piece with meaningful words, date, verses, and phrases and it makes me extra happy that so many customers tell me their loved one cried when they received the gift. Yep, if you want make someone cry, I’m your jewelry designer!
I mean, just look at these gorgeous photos. Her work is beautiful, right?
