Timeless Valetines day jewelry gift idea for the girl that has everything

Valentines day gift idea

I know sometimes it is hard to find something for the lovely lady in your life that already has everything. One of the reasons I created this sterling silver necklace is because the "heart" is timeless symbol of our affection for one another on Valentines day. The clean lines of a solid sterling silver piece make this necklace a staple in the jewelry box. With sterling silver, there is no color, therefore this heart necklace, simply says "I love you", but will be very easy to match with many outfits.

The specs: This necklace features a 12mm hammered sterling silver heart drop. The hammered sterling silver heart is hollow, therefore giving it a light weight feel and has a shiny, mirror finish.  The sterling silver heart is draped on a solid sterling silver, Italian chain, available in 16" or 18" lengths. The heart is removable, if you so desire. The sterling silver heart necklace features a simple lever clasp in the back for easy on and off wear.

Small Business Saturday

Why should you support Small Business Saturday?

I thought I would tell you what your valued business ensures and how it effects entrepreneurs such as myself each and every day. Entrepreneurs are a fascinating breed of people that walk through the gauntlet of fear and sometimes self doubt and come out the other end, turning their passion into a profitable business. I am a strong believer in doing what you love and fell SO blessed to be able to eagerly walk into my jewelry studio with a smile on my face. Yes, some days my hands are more sore than others from making jewelry, but it is always worth it. It truly fills my heart with gratitude every time a South Paw Studios piece finds a new home and is shipped out the door. Your patronage to small business is possible because of your continued dedication and passion to "buying handmade". The courage to step out of the big box stores and decide to opt for the "not so traditional gift" made by the "not so traditional person" is applaudable. Your business with ensures that I get to continue to safely walk my two young sons to and from school everyday, pay my mortgage, continue to grow my business each year and expand to include additional studio staff so I can take over the world (no, just kidding). I am not a gazillionaire CEO who wants to buy another boat and have it decorated with peacock feathers (although that would be very eye catching)... I am simply a wife, mom, and artist to the core who wants to continue to provide for my family. I am humbled by you... my valued customer. 
Thank you for choosing my 'Small Business' this saturday:)
