The Timeless, Handcrafted Quality of Jewel Kade's Charms!

You know you're attracted to the inherent beauty of Jewel Kade jewelry, but what makes it so special?  Here are a few tidbits that will make you fall in love with it even more!!
  • Each charm created by Janet Kinkade has an Old World craftmanship feel--beauty from handmade quality and timeless designs.
  • Every single charm is handcrafted in the JK production studios in Alpine, UT
  • The charms are each framed by hand in pewter.
  • The flat glass is hand-cut.
  • the artistic designs are printed one-by-one on artist's canvas.
  • The designs are embellished by hand with dazzling touches like Swarovski crystals and German Glass Glitter.  All drops are added by hand.
  • Each charm is individually inspected and polished before it's deemed JK-worth and shipped out.
  • Because each piece is handcrafted, no two charms are exactly alike, adding value to your JK collection!

My Jewel Kade Vision!!

"Cross" my "Heart" and Hope to Fly! 
I have learned so much about dreams, vision, and leadership since becoming a Jewel Kade stylist!  Before I had clearly defined goals, I was running my business like a hampster in a cage--forever spinning, yet going nowhere.  Now that I know what I want and have it posted to remind me, I feel unstoppable and am succeeding like I never before imagined!  Let me share with you my vision:
  • Always put God and my family first
  • Help other women achieve their vision and change lives by sponsoring 2 stylists per month
  • Be able to donate more generously to charities and family/friends and make $10,000 per month by Jan 2010
  • Be able to travel back to Lisbon, Portugal, where I spent some time on a church service mission
  • Be able to buy a new car for our family of 7!
  • Grow personally in leadership and charity for others
These may seem lofty to some, idealic to others, but to me, it is my vision.  It's what keeps me motivated in the morning and able to get through whatever bumps in the road I may encounter!

Jewel Kade has opened my eyes to the potential of direct sales--think about what you could do with an extra $1000-5000 per month and create your vision today!  I would love to help you reach your goals.  That is my passion.  There's never been a better time to join Jewel Kade!  :-)

Introducing: Jewel Kade Jack Tags!

If you've been browsing this blog looking at all the gorgeous charms and thinking:  "um, cute, but not in a million years would I wear something that BIG" then have I got news for you!

Even though Jewel Kade is known for it's distinctive charms, they truly have something for everyone.  Sometimes less is more.  And that's where the "magnolia metals" come in:  personalized beauty without the bulk!  You can write up to 7 characters on one line of the "kate" stamps, or 2 lines with 9 letters on the "jack tags."  The Jack Tags will be available when the new catalog debuts March 1, and feel free to get creative!  Names are only one avenue--think school teams, inspirational quotes (i.e. "live strong", "be happy," "love life", etc), special dates, etc. I ordered one that says 5.27.99 on the first line, with the word FOREVER on the second--a meaningful reminder of our anniversary.  (And you know I'll be wearing that every day the week leading up to it for a "gentle" reminder to my husband that it's coming up!)

The Kate and Jack tags also make meaningful gifts for young girls and friends without breaking the bank!  At $26, the price can't be beat--the necklace is included!!

The Jewel Kade Opportunity is Knocking!

Does the word "direct sales" make you throw up a little in your mouth?  Or does it make you want to shout the opportunity of a life-time from your rooftop?  I have been in both camps.  From experience:  the second camp is WAY more fun!! (and lucrative!)
When I started with Jewel Kade a year ago in March, I wasn't even looking for it.  Some of you reading this probably aren't looking for it, but here it is--truly a once in a lifetime opportunity!  In the last month, Jewel Kade has grown by over 100 stylists, bringing the total to just under 1200 nationwide.  Be a part of the amazing growth and change your life!  Who wouldn't want more financial freedom, recognition, friends, and, um, jewelry?!  There has never been a better time than NOW to jump on the Jewel Kade train! 

I encourage you to sign up before the end of February--the starter kits are $100 off PLUS you'll get $100 in free jewelry when you get off to a great start!  Join me in Jewel Kading the nation!

Charming Girls from Jewel Kade

The "Charming Girls" Collection is not  just another name for a group of Jewel Kade Stylists!  It is quite possibly the most personal and whimsical collection in the catalog--tell me, which one do you identify with?  Is it the:
Garden Girl (she turned moths into butterflies)
Girl on the Go (shopping, salon, mall, party, movie, lunch, boutique, spa, gym, theatre)
Glamour Girl (hello, gorgeous!)
Rodeo Girl (Kick up your heels!)
Vintage Girl (Aged to Perfection)
I gotta say, each of these look absolutely DIVINE, I say, on a strand of chocolate and champagne pearls.  Did somebody say chocolate?  Janet, may I request a "Chocolate Girl" charm that says "Anytime, anywhere, for any reason" on the back?!  Food for thought....mmmm

Join the Jewel Kade Fan Club!

Dare I admit I was once a high school cheerleader?  Well, now that that kitty is out of the bag, I guess I will tell you in my day we actually had fan "pins."  Hello, people! I don't think anything has been updated to such a classy stature in such a short amount of time except maternity clothes.  INTRODUCING:  The Jewel Kade fan club line!  Be a fan who means business with your child's photo on front and their school colors and number on the back.  Oh yeah, your kid is gonna feel some kind of special when they see you sporting this!

Jewel Kade Inspirations--Truly Charming!

How is it possible that the Jewel Kade "Word Sticks" designed by Janet Kinkade can speak to so many people with so few words??!  Truly baffling.  Hmm.  Maybe I should speak less, and let the charms do my talking.
"just breath....fresh air"
"go barefoot....be carefree"
"be inspired....fly higher"
"love freely....love life"
If those spoke to you, wait til you see what she's got in store for us in the new catalog!  I'm going to give you just one little teaser:
giggle....to laugh in a silly, often high-pitched way
Now if that didn't make you at least crack a smile, well then, maybe Jewel Kade is just what the doctor ordered!

Jewel Kade Blog Roll Blitz!!

Don't you just look at the picture and think--um, gorgeous!!  You are not alone.  Since becoming a Jewel Kade Stylist almost a year ago, I have had nothing but positive responses from friends, family, and even complete strangers!  Everyone has been so supportive and many times I get asked "What can I do to help your business?"  I am so overwhelmed, and even surprised by that question that I usually mumble something senseless like "well, er, I don't know, but you are so sweet!" but now I have a real answer to that question! 
PLEASE, ADD ME TO YOUR BLOG ROLL!!
Please, just do it.  It only takes a moment of your time, and it is just another way for me to get the word out to a broader audience.  And the warm fuzzies you'll get from "paying it forward" are priceless! 

Most people don't want to do something nowadays without getting something in return.  I get it.  And I am more than willing to GIVE!  So, when you add me to your blog roll, please, please, comment below so I can put your name in my giveaway.  Each person who comments will add one dollar to the pot, which starts at $10.  Doesn't sound like much?  Well, tell all your friends--it could add up quick! I am a generous gal, and I'd love to pay actual PEOPLE in jewelry for advertising, instead of spending my advertising budget on an ad in some newspaper or magazine.  When you tell your friends to add me to their blog roll (i.e. via facebook or your own personal blog), be sure they mention your name when they comment so you'll get another entry to win. 
So start spreading the JK love today! 
And I truly thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Be the first Jewel Kade Stylist in Hawaii!!

 Jewel Kade is a phenomenal opportunity wherever you happen to live, but it's especially AWESOME if you're the FIRST in your area!  (which happens to be a lot of places!)  Hawaii is fertile ground, my friends...Be the first to sign and I'll send you one of these charms as a gift--you choose!!

Break ground wherever you may live, and begin reaching your dreams today!!  I am so excited that the new catalog has a new Hawaii "City Stick" charm to celebrate the islands!  Especially since my husband was born and raised there--Hawaii will always hold a special place in my heart!!
My 19 month old boy was feeling the Hawaii vibe as I was writing this....he just spilled a pint of Aloha Shoyu all over my kitchen floor!  Oh boy....


The Jewel Kade Catalog has something for everyone!!!

When I think of Jewel Kade, usually hand-crafted charms and luxurious pearls come to mind first.  If those don't make your skirt fly up, just keep turning the pages in the catalog, because trust me, something will!  Actually, when I first laid eyes on JK, I was attracted to the "magnolia metals."  These are individually hand-stamped mini charms that can be paired up with just about anything!  Birthstones, pearls, drops, pewter charms such as pineapples, owls, hearts, keys, just to name a few....I wanted a "mommy" necklace to celebrate my children (and to remind myself that yes, they are a blessing!).  I told my husband what I wanted, which was 5 stamped circles with each of their initials on it, with their birthstones.  To my utter amazement, he replied "Why don't you just sign up yourself?"  I couldn't sleep for days.  But he was right--I hadn't been that excited about something in a really long time, and now I'm on the journey of a lifetime!

Pick your favorite and let me know what speaks to you!  (remember, each comment adds $1 to my weekly giveaway pot!) Why do you love Jewel Kade??

Make Money Selling Jewel Kade!!

Sometimes blunt is best--I get it, money talks, so here's the scoop:  You can make a lot of dough selling Jewel Kade.  It's not just about liking pretty things and making women feel beautiful--sometimes it's about putting food on the table.

FACT:  80% of women who make $100,000 annually do it through direct sales.
FACT:  Ground floor opportunities like this in direct sales come around once in a lifetime
FACT:  There are only 1000 JK stylists nationwide, many states with only a handful.
FACT:  Give Jewel Kade a year and you could be making $10,000 per month.  (forget about college loans!)
FACT:  I really love being a mom. Even when my baby steps in the butter plate with his winter boots.  That's why I'm doing Jewel Kade--no other business provides me with that flexibility and recognition!!

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?  Act now before your neighbor does and take advantage of this opportunity in front of you!  :-)

If any of this piqued your interest and you find yourself dreaming in bling, CALL ME!  208-724-7397. I am here for you and would love to have a partner in crime!  Charmingly yours, Sarah

Jewel Kade Jewelry, Chains, and Charms, OH MY!!

I must admit, before my Jewel Kade days, I was a minimalist (at most!) when it came to wearing jewelry.  But there's something different and unique about each of the pieces designed by Janet Kinkade, they instantly won me over and now I feel naked without them!  Picking the jewelry pieces that speak to you is part of the joy--each one is hand-made and truly one of a kind, and many of them contain little quotes and quips that describe you or the ones you love.  Find which one speaks to you and let me know!  I love hearing which ones are people's favorites!!   (by the way, if any of the ones in the above picture catch your fancy, order before Feb 28th as they are being retired and on their way to becoming collectibles!)

Express Yourself with Jewel Kade Word Sticks!

One thing I love the most about Jewel Kade charms are the clever and identifiable quips on them which make them instantly endearing!  Some of my favorites are "Love Freely, Love Life" and "Bee yourself, everybody else is already taken."  There is something for everyone--a fun, unique way to express yourself and be your own YOU!

STAY TUNED for more word sticks to come your way!  Not that I can leak any company secrets, but the new catalog does NOT disappoint!  Be sure to go to www.jewelkade.com/sarahfoutz to find out which charm speaks to you!

Host a Jewel Kade Get-Together!

When I invite people to host a get-together with their friends, I want it to be a simple evening which focuses on them.  Jewel Kade parties are not elaborate affairs--it's all about getting together to dress up and feel girly, pretty, sexy, and all dolled up, along while laughing with your friends!

And since you'll be so busy trying it on, you won't need to worry about making over-the-top treats.  Keeping it low-key makes it less-stressful and invites the guests to focus on what they came for:  the stellar awesome jewelry!  My suggestion:  something sweet, something salty.  Nuff said.

And what do the hostesses receive for all their hard work?

 Well, like anything, you get out of it what you put into it.  But for starters, you'll receive your choice of any one of the four lovely gifts (pictured in this post) FREE with any qualifying party reaching $250 in sales.  That is my gift to you!

But in addition to that, you'll get 10% of free jewelry of party sales from $250-$999, or 15% of free jewelry when your party breaks $1000 in sales.  Think that's impossible?  Think again--it happens more often than you think, but only with a dedicated hostess passionate about sharing her love of Jewel Kade with her friends!

What's more is when your friends book their own shows, you'll get up to 4 half-off items per booking.  How cool is that?

So go ahead, email me or call me today, or simply leave a comment.  The only thing I love more about this business than the jewelry is meeting fun new people like yourself! 

Want to see more?  Check out Jewel Kade's website!
