Handmade “Birthstone” Jewelry Dishes
If you know me (or follow the shop on Instagram and Facebook), then you know that I am an advocate of removing your jewelry as soon as you get home. No, you shouldn’t wear it to bed (65%+ of all damage to jewelry happens when people are asleep. Yes, really). No, you shouldn’t wear it in the pool (chemicals are really hard on the alloys in the jewelry and on some soft stones). Nope, not even when you’re doing housework or in the garden. Yes, this includes bracelets, brooches and earrings, people. Please, for the love of all things good in the world – Take. It. Off.
Now…. you need somewhere safe to put these pieces when you’re not wearing your prize jewels. And not everyone has a multi-tiered jewelry box (I can neither confirm, nor deny that I do). And that’s why I created these little jewelry dishes for you. They’re perfect for the nightstand or your dresser and will hold your jewelry while you go do all the things you do that are not jewelry approved.
The colors are modeled after the birthstone for each month of the year (see the list below). You can pick one that corresponds to the month of your birth or just find one incorporating colors that you love. I won’t judge. Each dish is handmade and so while the colors used will always remain the same, the variations, patterns and shape of each dish will be slightly different. They make GREAT gifts (think birthday, anniversary or even bridesmaids gifts) but they’re also a nice little treat for yourself. Each dish will be made when you order, so give us a day or two to get it just right and we’ll ship it out to you within 3 business days. And then you know what to do (hint: Take. It. Off.).
