I always love giving jewelry as a gift. Maybe it’s cliché, but I always feel like it comes from the heart… giving someone you love a beautiful adornment to wear on their body; something to keep forever; something to remind them of the relationship you share. I recently visited Terrain in Glen Mills, and fell in love with a jewelry display they had. It featured necklaces in little jewelry boxes filled with moss and crystals. It ignited a spark within me, and I knew I had to build a little bit on the idea and share it with you all.
If you’re giving someone you love a piece of jewelry as a gift this holiday season, try filling the jewelry box with a piece of nature – whether it’s twigs, pebbles, herbs, or anything you can imagine – and lay the jewelry on top. It’s such a beautiful surprise. It’s incredibly visually appealing, and it adds an element of personalization, making the gift even more meaningful.
I really love the way the Traveling Storm Ring looks in a bed of twigs — like a gorgeous little egg in a bird’s nest.
This idea works really well with our Etched Plate Necklaces because you can use the etched word to inspire the material you use. I really liked using light-colored pebbles for “Moon Child” because they reminded me of rocks you’d find on the moon.
You all know how much I love using dried herbs… for everything. I placed hibiscus, chamomile, and lavender beneath the yellow Earths Treasure Ring. I love the way the colors all look together inside this midnight blue box.
Using clear-colored stones really showcases a gorgeous ring like the Tear Drop Stone Ring.
What do you guys think — would you package a jewelry gift like this?
