Mark your calendars & come out for a day filled with shopping & fun!
Summer is underway & things have been quiet on the jewelry front; The family & I have been traveling, to see family in upstate NY the last two weeks.
It’s refreshing spending time with our family, however this trip was bitter-sweet. We laid to rest my younger sister who had passed in September. We’ve had some time to come to grips with her passing, & now we have closure.
Throughout our visit I found myself reflecting on family memories & the way life has changed over the years. Time is a funny thing.
My bird nest pendant is a piece of jewelry that I wear almost daily. Simply because I like the necklace & it makes me think of my kids. However, while being around family & my youngest sister I found myself holding & touching my pendant often.
For me, this necklace does represent more than just a delightful piece of jewelry that I made. My three bead, bird nest pendant represents my two sisters (Steph & Chiris) & myself. as well as my three children …
… it’s curious how certain objects can take on such special meaning … for myself, my pendants represent family.
Before we left Rochester, NY I left a gift for Steph: a silver plated, purple bead, bird-nest necklace. Whatever this pendant means to her, I know that it will be something special.
My in-laws live just outside of Hornell, NY- in the southern tier. It is beautiful up there. Their house is a home on a hill & is surrounded by trees, water, birds, and other creatures that pass through their land.
Sitting on the deck over-looking the pond, or relaxing in a rocking chair on the front porch watching the sun set, I was reminded of the simplicity of life; the beauty that surrounds us everyday. Sometimes we have to look closer at the world around us to see the beauty, but it is always there.
Keep on punching & keep your eyes open!

Giving Back, Finding Routine, Making Memories … Anything Else We Need To Do?
Yesterday was the Quarter2 meeting for #100WomenWhoGiveAHoot!
A little about this awesome group that gives back to the community …
Voting for JUST ONE non-profit is not an easy decision to make – tears are shed for every organization that presents. But it DOES feel good to know that the money we give to these organizations are going directly into our community.
Switching gears … as my family begins the summer, we are working on getting into a routine … of sorts.
This is hard for us: my husband is traveling, 1 out of the 3 kids is traveling, 1 out of the 2 at home is attending a 3 day cooking class …
We’re all over the map.
& it’s okay. We’ll find a groove, and when it starts to become routine we’ll flip back to the school year routine!
So this is my plan:
Next Saturday, May 5th is the 38th Annual Apex PeakFest!
Historical downtown Apex is transformed into a spectacular street fair, featuring the following:
Come on out & spend the day with family & friends supporting our community! Jewelry in a Jar will have a booth located near the fire station, across from Saunders Street. So as you are walking down Salem Street celebrating the “Peak of Good Living” stop by our booth & say hi!
I am beyond excited to be a part of PeakFest this year! Many of the pieces that you’ve seen on our Instagram & on Facebook will be for sale. Have you put any thought into what you’re doing for Mother’s Day this year? This is also a great opportunity to come by & see in person the pieces that I have been making.
The festival is from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Salem Street in historic downtown Apex. It is free and open to the public. For more information on vendors, entertainment, sponsorship opportunities and volunteering, visit the PeakFest website.
Enjoy your weekend & I look forward to seeing you soon!

Last week I tried a couple classes at the gym:
Cardioboxing & a glute class.
The next day I joined three friends for a hot yoga class at a local yoga studio.
This “lets try something new itch” comes from my inability to cancel our gym membership – I do not go the gym regularly …. well, actually I haven’t been in a long time. But I don’t want to cancel because what IF I do decide to start going. regularly?
The gym sent out an email advertising a special night where they were holding 3 / 20 minute classes that members & friends could try out. Being a member of the gym for 10 years & never taking a class – I said: Lets Do This! & I signed up. & my friend Jenn said she would go with me. & we went.
The next night I was invited to join three of my friends at the hot yoga studio they go to.
Other than yoga on the Wii … I’ve never attended a yoga class. I was clueless as to what HOT yoga entailed, so I googled “HOT YOGA”. I enjoy the dry sauna at the gym. Lets Do This!
Fast forward 3 days: my muscles were still sore, but I felt GOOD! I felt like I could take on a class at the gym – at the very least try out a few more to see what I may enjoy doing … for myself.
The more I thought about it, the reason I didn’t take full advantage of the classes our gym offers, is because I was afraid. What if I don’t know the routines? What if I am the only over weight person there? What if the class is too hard for me? … I’d look ridiculous.
& I wasn’t the only one trying these things for the first time.
& I wasn’t the only one not in perfect shape
& I wasn’t the only person trying these classes for the first time.
& I’m sure that I wasn’t the only one FEELING GREAT DOING IT!
At some point in our lives we feel stuck. That is normal.
However, it’s when we recognize this, we need to climb out, & engage in fresh experiences that reinvigorate out lives with energy and excitement!
Some level of fear is always present when trying something new. Eventually, once you make it a priority to try new things, fear will fade.
Make a list (it doesn’t have to be long) of things you would like to try:
Choose a signature piece
Do you see a pattern?
Play to your strength
Which colors inspire you?
Closet Clean Out
Something that makes you feel confident and beautiful is never out of style.
Awe can inspire creativity
an excerpt from the article, “How Awe-Inspiring Experiences Can Make You Happier, Less Stressed And More Creative”
“… Experiences of awe have inspired countless works of art, from landscape paintings to romantic poetry to spiritual memoirs. And science has shown that awe actually inspires creativity, helping us to think more flexibly and see things in a new light.
A 2012 study from Tel Aviv University found that “expansive thinking” could lead to boosts in creativity. According to the study’s lead researcher, “outward” rather than “inward”-focused thinking helped children to consider different perspectives and see beyond their present situation.
In the study, one group of children was asked to look at a series of photos, beginning with local objects such as a pencil sitting on the desk in front of them, and progressing to vast or faraway things, like the Milky Way galaxy. The other group of children was showed the images in the opposite order, from expansive to immediate. The children in the group that progressed from local to expansive images performed significantly better on a test of creativity directly after looking at the images than the children who looked at nearby images last.
Next time you need a quick fix to boost your creativity at work, try taking a look at some nature photography, or watch a short “Shots of Awe” video on YouTube to help you start thinking bigger.”
“I believe in awe. The awesomeness of life, of being, is inexhaustible. No matter what we lose, fear, or despise, it is there. It is there at our darkest hour, in trial as in devastation, in life as in death; because it is beyond life and death, trial and devastation. It’s not that it is readily accessible, perceivable, or even conceivable; at our worst times, it is opaque. However, awe is available and that availability can be realized in an instant or a lifetime.” –Kirk Schneider
Yesterday we announced our WINNER of the “You Are My Sunshine Bracelet”! The reveal video was posted on our Facebook page yesterday afternoon, & a name was randomly pulled from the bowl [drum roll please …]
CONGRATULATIONS to KATHY!
If you read the last blog post, you know that the song, “You are my sunshine” holds a special place in my heart. It also represents something very special for Kathy & her family. Enjoy!
There will be more give aways, so be sure to follow Jewelry in a Jar on Facebook & Instagram.
In the mean time, I have been asked if Jewelry in a Jar would like to donate a couple jewelry sets for raffle prizes again, at Reedy Creek Magnet Middle School’s Creek Madness (Creek Madness is a PTA-sponsored, yearly fun event for your whole family with an emphasis on anti-bullying). RCMMS is an incredible middle school with a lot of heart; I appreciate the opportunity to be a part, not only as a parent but as a local business.
As I work on the pieces for RCMMS, I will be crossing my fingers! Why? you ask ….
As of this past Friday, I mailed in the vender application for PEAK FEST! The applications are due at the end of next month, so hopefully we’ll hear back in March as to whether Jewelry in a Jar has been accepted! This would be such an awesome adventure.
Meeting & talking with other artisans at art & craft fairs is a worthwhile experience. We each bring our own unique art, and way of presenting, and the experiences shared is … priceless. It will be a while before we hear anything, but I’ll let you know when we do.
“You are my sunshine” ... that is one of my favorite songs from childhood; I can remember swaying in the hammock with my sisters & grandma in my grandparents back yard, singing songs.
It is amazing how a smell, a color, a song, a piece of jewelry can transport you back in time.
All you need to do to enter, is head over to our Facebook page and …
A winner will be chosen at random on Monday, January 15th!
Thank you for shopping small & supporting Jewelry in a Jar.
Today I had someone inquire about creative ways to display their jewelry. While bringing up my past blog Simple Ways to Display & Organize Your Jewelry, I also took a look at simple ways to untangle necklaces/chains.
I’m sure we all have that small mound of costume jewelry or just older chains that have gone by the wayside – ended up in a mound, in a drawer or tucked away in a jewelry box.
Well, I came across this site: 5 minute fix: Untangle a necklace
After you untangle your pieces you may find that they lack a little luster.
For this, you need only one of two things:
Either one of these should help bring back some shine to your pieces – even your costume jewelry.
For even more ways to clean your jewelry at home check this out: Simple Household Tips
Once you have your pieces back … untangled and full of shine don’t forget to store & display your pieces in a creative way. EXPRESS YOURSELF!
noun (pl. beauties)
a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight • a combination of qualities that pleases the intellect or moral sense.
There are many definitions for the word BEAUTY.
We need to move away from, the stereotypical definition: defining a person (often times a female) as a beautiful object.
We view people and things as pleasing on the eyes, an aesthetically pleasing shape, or color …
What if we focus on the qualities that please our intellect & not just our senses?
“Beauty is intelligence.”
The shape of a persons thoughts, their moral compass … whether they are kind, helpful or considerate … these become what we see as Beauty.
Often times it is the outward appearance that draws us to someone or something, and that is the catalyst from which we determine if that is something we are interested in knowing more of.
However you define BEAUTY, try to see it from “outside of the box”.
“… beauty is a label we attach to different sorts of experiences based on a combination of cultural and personal preferences …”
When I ask myself, “ what makes me feel beautiful?” My first response is: the outfit I’m wearing & the accessories.
The clothes, the accessories, the shoes … those are material items that help boost my confidence.
Confidence – that is what makes me feel beautiful.
We are surrounded by attractive things & people everyday. When it comes to defining what makes something beautiful … let’s change our mindset.
“Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder”

|ROCK & BREW was a BLAST!
Mouse Dreams Foundation put on the Rock & Brew event hosted by Big Boss Brewing Company this past Saturday, helping to raise money for their foundation! Jewelry in a Jar was proud to be a part of this worthwhile event – which included meeting some incredible local artisans & shop owners!
Mouse Dreams Foundation was able to raise enough money through – donations, purchasing of raffle tickets & beer, and from vendors purchasing their spaces …. enough money was raised to send the “first” child & their family to Disney World AND they are on their way to sending the “second” child & their family!
Sign-up for the Jewelry in a Jar Newsletter! to find out about up coming events, latest designs & so much more!
Jewelry in a Jar will have a vendor’s booth at this event – so come by, say hello & help support a great foundation!
See you there!
This Fall the DUSON is putting on their 3rd Arts & Craft Fair.
I have been asked if I would be interested in attending again …. & of course – YES!
This event last year was spirited! Not only was Jewelry in a Jar surrounded by so many talented artists, crafters, and local businesses, but to help support the Duke School of Nursing is a refreshing thing. There are people all around us that give themselves to professions where they can positively impact & help others.
Coming from a family with many nurses … I appreciate the invitation to come back to the 2017 DUSON Arts & Crafts Fair.
Jewelry in a Jar will be selling enchanting handcrafted bird-nest pendants, and tear drop & earrings!
This jewelry making adventure has been an incredible ride so far. I’ve learned quite a bit about jewelry making, crafting, and about myself – what I am capable of accomplishing.
With the kids’ summer break ending & school beginning – I will be spending more time designing & crafting!
There are those moments when you want to give back, but time is working against you – or money is tight – or there are so many charities/ people/ communities that need support … it can be overwhelming as to where to give your time, energy, or monetary support.
Jewelry in a Jar has a donation ready for the impactful group 100 Women Who Give a Hoot. An eclectic 18″ Bird-Nest Pendant Necklace & matching Tear-Drop Earrings are going to be raffled off with a Rodan+Fields package from my good friend Jackie
I recently joined the group 100 Women Who Give a Hoot and I am looking forward to attending the first meeting in September!
Jewelry in a Jar isn’t just another jewelry business.
Creating one of a kind jewelry, I give back; Giving back not only to my community through fundraisers & charities, or by using recycled products whenever I can … but by creating jewelry with meaning.
A piece of jewelry … really ANYTHING for the matter – can contain personal meaning for someone. The jewelry that I am making, I make with a special thought or person in mind. When the piece is purchased and is worn, it then represents something new! In that respect, each piece is always evolving & taking on new meaning.
The joy that I feel when creating a piece of jewelry is something that I hope is felt by each of you who wears it.
Now … back to the design & creating table. I’ve got pendants to make!
For more information on the group: 100 Women Who Give a Hoot visit their website. There are chapters worldwide! & the thing that interested me the most about this group, is that each chapter gives back to their community.
All right! Let’s get this train on track! Things may have seemed quiet on the blog front, however Jewelry in a Jar is heating up …
Despite the disappointments of not getting into Cary’s Lazy Daze Arts & Crafts Festival, & a few other places in the Triangle area … Jewelry in a Jar is gearing up for the Duke University School of Nursing Arts & Crafts Show in November! Jewelry in a Jar was invited to attend last year, & has recently been invited back for their show again!
Attending last November, we met some incredible artists & are excited to be a part of this impressive event.
In the mean time I’ve been working on some new designs: repurposing old jewelry & earrings that have lost their mates, bangle bracelets ( w/ stamped charms), tear-drop earrings, also working with a variety of ceramic & glass beads.
The bird-nest pendants, however are still the star of the show. Each pendant is its own work of art. The other day I spent time giving some pendants chains. Not only is the pendant itself unique, but the chain that is created for it is the finishing touch.
I’d love to hear from you too – let me know about the pieces you’ve purchased from Jewelry in a Jar – what’s your favorite, or what you’d like to see in the future! Follow Jewelry in a Jar on Facebook & Twitter.
You have many pieces of jewelry ….
Your everyday jewelry, your fancy-night-out jewelry, your chic/funky casual wear jewelry …
Now the question is: how do you display/store your jewelry?
For me, the fine jewelry that I have, I wear on “special occasions”. So those pieces usually reside in their velvet jewelry boxes tucked away until a “special occasion” arises.
My funky-chic-everyday/casual jewelry I display on my bathroom counter & on my bathroom wall.
Using the metal jewelry tree that was gifted to me several years ago, I hang my earrings, rings & bracelets. It has a little tray at the base that is convenient for leather wrap bracelets, stud earrings & backs, as well as those earrings that are missing their match.
For my necklaces, I purchased a three-piece silver towel wall hanger. This works great for the long necklaces that I have.
I have always loved the idea of using a branch, or an antique looking jar with several branches to hang bracelets & necklaces. Placing a cute dish underneath the jar wold provide a place for those pieces you don’t want to hang.
These are a few of my favorite ideas:
Perusing the internet, you can find a plethora of sites for DIY jewelry displays and most of these can be made at home with very few materials.
Check out the sites below for some more creative funky-fresh ideas!
Cheers! & Happy organizing!
So, Mother’s Day was this past Sunday. Phone calls were made, Happy Mom Day texts sent, and 2 out of 3 kids woke me with breakfast in bed @ 7am (the child that was MIA was still sleeping).
The rest of the day I lounged around the house, read outside on the patio while soaking up some sun.
We then ended the day with an incredible home cooked meal (compliments of my husband) & hung out with friends – a few other mothers, & the fathers, & all of our the kids.
This was my Mother’s Day. 🙂
These days come in all shapes & sizes.
What is done for one mom, is done differently for another. How one family celebrates, is different from the next.
EVERYDAY we can show the people that are important to us, just how special they are.
With that said:
THANK YOU …!
Thank you for supporting my Shop: Jewelry in a Jar.
I have seen a couple of the gifts purchased – being worn! & many of you have shared how happy you are with your purchase! The joy my pieces have brought you & others you’ve shared them with – multiply that by 100 – because that is my take-away. 🙂
Keep the feedback coming & share pictures on our Facebook page!
Balance. We hear about it & read about it : balancing work, family & our personal lives. But what does this mean: work/life balance?
The last two weeks for me, have been a whirlwind:
Friday night, I sat in front of my computer trying to get a little bit of work in (I felt like I was MIA the week before).
As I perused the web, I found myself looking up, “work/life balance” (Perhaps that was because I was feeling a bit – unbalanced – trying to find time for my business, myself, my husband, the kids & the house … ).
Everyone is balancing life, work, & family. We may be juggling different things/situations, but we often share the same feelings: overwhelmed, tired, off-balance – as if we’re giving more of ourselves to one thing over another.
I came across this description of what work/life balance is not:
Many times I have tried to make my life look like an equilateral triangle.
NOT GOING TO HAPPEN (period).
Life is fluid.
Balance varies for everyone depending on where you are in life & it varies on a daily basis as well.
“An effective work/life balance includes daily achievements & enjoyment”.
Achievement is self explanatory – enjoyment is not always easy for us to understand.
Finding enjoyment simply means: identifying something you can take pride in, find happiness, a sense of wellness or love … these = the “joys of living”.
Humans need both achievement & enjoyment to get the full value out of life.
This is not easy to do everyday. For myself, I must slow down & purposefully look for these some days; they are there.

This afternoon I stood a little taller & little happier!
While swinging by the craft store to pick up more beads for the BIRD NEST PENDANTS (they will be up in the shop this week!) … the person checking me out complimented me on the earrings I was wearing!
& guess what?! … I was wearing Jewelry in a Jar’s STUDS & BEADS.
She also asked me for my card!
(btw: she organizes the business cards she collects in an awesome/organized fashion … I’ll tell you about that in another post, right now I digress …)
… and with a twinkle in my eye, and a new found spring in my step – I handed her my card.
From one crafter to another.
I appreciated this woman’s kindness today.
It’s so easy to make a difference in someone’s day … pass it along 🙂
So excited to tell you all the awesome things that are happening!
As some of you have seen from Jewelry in a Jar’s Facebook posts, we have new pieces coming out – & I AM SO EXCITED!!
I have been creating Bird Nest Pendants, and Stud Earrings!
There have been several requests for the Bird Nest Pendants for Mother’s Day. I am delighted to tell you that they will be up in the shop next week!! The day that they come out we’ll let you know – so make sure you catch Jewelry in a Jar on Facebook, or Instagram for the latest updates!
I count myself among the many that enjoy a smaller earring (- depending on the outfit of the day 😉 …. and we have Stud Earrings up in the shop now. Wooden beads & silver wire. The earrings have small plastic backs. So cute & versatile.
As you may already know, I am active in my kids’ schools …
The middle school (Reedy Creek Magnet Middle School Center for the Digital Sciences) is hosting its Creek Madness next week & I am so happy that Jewelry in a Jar was able to donate a bracelet & earrings set, & a pair of earrings for the raffle that will be held. I can’t wait to see the pieces on the lucky person that wins them!
I always feel like I am on the run … coming up next: Balance. What is it, & how to we stay on this balance-beam called life – & not fall off & bust our lip. 😀 … or something like that 😉
In the meantime, stay healthy & happy & enjoy the adventure!
You’ve heard the name. You’ve been introduced to the site. Several people have bought pieces from the shop … but what is Jewelry in a Jar?
Jewelry in a Jar is a woman owned, small business providing jewelry which is all handcrafted in my home in Cary NC — using my hands, my imagination, and the support of my husband & my kids I create one of kind earrings/bracelets/necklaces.
When our first child was born, I decided to be stay at home parent. Seven years later, the time came for our youngest child to go off to public school, & I decided to go back to work – outside of the home.
Over a four year period, I worked in childcare & in the public school system. As a family, we came to the realization that we all were happier when The Mom was home – this included being able to volunteer in all three children’s classrooms & in the schools, gave my husband & I more time together …. we’re still working on the mountains of laundry but that will work itself out — someday.
Being engaged is important.
March is a difficult month for me. I lost my grandmother & my father a year ago. My grandmother was a special woman, & her death affected me in ways I couldn’t have foreseen …
One of the things Grandma passed on to her daughter, her granddaughters & her great granddaughters – is her sense of strength & independence.
I wanted to make things. I love unique jewelry … and creating things with my own two hands gives me a sense of peace and accomplishment.
Over several months – I learned how to work with wire & beads, & before I knew it I had a plethora of earrings. A friend of mine was heading up a craft fair for the preschool which she is the director of & invited me to sell my wares there.
The jewelry that I handcraft is jewelry that I would wear myself – & it gives me a sense of joy when I see someone wearing my pieces. I hope that they feel the same joy wearing them.
Each handcrafted piece, whether they are earrings, bracelets or necklaces … are shipped in a jar. Many of the jars are recycled, ornate in someway, and can be used in a number of ways: to store or display your earrings/jewelry, regift the jar, use for a candle, etc …
“Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr
And … the packages have been delivered!
I mentioned a little while back, thinking about different ways Jewelry in a Jar can give back to our community.
We are still a wee-bit little company, but our heart is 10 times bigger!
Creek Madness is in the planning phase at Reedy Creek Magnet Middle School Center for the Digital Sciences …(my oldest daughter’s school).
What is Creek Madness you ask?! …..
Creek Madness is their annual festival to promote anti-bullying and a fun evening for students and their families. There are raffles, contests, games, prizes, and RCMMS’s famous Staff vs. Students basketball game!
Our PTA sent out a request asking business owners for donations for the raffles and contest prizes at Creek Madness. What an awesome way to help support our public school & get Jewelry in a Jar out – into the community!
Two bracelet & earring sets, along with a pair of silver tree-stamped earrings have been donated to RCMMS for their Creek Madness raffle & prizes.
Our family has had an incredible experience with our public schools, the administration & of course, excellent teachers! Being able to volunteer in the schools, helping out in the classrooms, being a mentor & tutor for our students … and assisting our schools in many other ways warms my heart! I give because I am able.
Our community, our village – we have to support each other, in order to make a positive impact in our community & in our schools!
It’s hard to believe that I began this journey seven months ago! Like many things, Jewelry in a Jar was an idea that started out small: an interest in learning how to handcraft my own jewelry …
This idea developed into an adventure that I have enjoyed putting my time & energy into; I have been able to share this experience with family & friends, and have encountered immense support.
I have also found myself meeting people with similar interests.
I have found community on social media, as well as locally.
At my daughter’s school I complimented a woman I was sitting with, on her coat. As it turns out she has been creating her own jewelry for several years & was happy to share ideas & classes that her friends teach in this area.
Smile at that person you are sitting next to at the coffee shop; share a compliment; make a new acquaintance. Many people are open to connecting and sharing a moment.
I talk often with friends about our VILLAGE:
… and now I’ve come upon another village:
A community of people supporting each other in their entrepreneurial endeavors.
Our Jewelry in a Jar adventure started seven months ago, & it is only getting better!
*every accomplishment starts with the decision to try*
All right! Over the last few days I’ve been working with copper wire … several new earrings are ready to be up loaded to the shop! If you haven’t already, you can also keep up with our adventures on Facebook Twitter & Instagram.
We still have several projects in the works. Currently we are brainstorming ways in which our shop can positively impact our community. As we brainstorm different ideas, I am handcrafting unique pieces for this intention – so don’t leave the party just yet … we’ve some pulchritudinous pieces on the horizon! 😉
— Marian Ingham (@Mingham) February 3, 2017
Jewelry in a Jar is my creative outlet. Working with my hands, getting lost in the shaping of the wire & working with beads & various mediums … I want to impact others’ lives & ultimately make a difference; even if that difference is helping to make someone feel beautiful and inspired.
This I know, is just the start.
In the weeks to come I will be creating & uploading new pieces (earrings, wrap bracelets & necklaces). A certain section of which, proceeds will be donated to a cause that will follow along with the names of the pieces listed above.
It is easy to sit at a workbench, and in front of a computer and say, “let’s come together & make a difference!” … so how about I put this challenge out there: in the coming weeks Jewelry in a Jar will create & support a cause that helps create harmony & benevolence between our planet & all people. And I encourage you, to lend a hand to your neighbor. Sometimes, the person next to you can simply use a smile or a compliment.
This adventure is becoming avant-garde! 🙂 Thanks again for joining us on this awesome ride!
Take a moment and let us know what you think of the website. And if you’ve had the opportunity to purchase a piece from Jewelry in a Jar from one of the craft fairs we’ve attended, let us know what you think!
Our differences are what help make this place we call home, AMAZING.
