Layering Pearls add pizazz to any outfit!

If you've been reading this blog, you know that Jewel Kade's specialty is in their hand-crafted charms which look absolutely phenomenal LAYERED.  If you think you can't pull off that look, think again!  It's the fabulous "layering pearls" to the rescue!  Put this strand on, and you'll not only look like a million bucks, but you'll feel like a JK superstar who can layer like a veteran! :)

Here's some tips on how this necklace can be worn:
  • wear it long with a knot at the bottom
  • wrap it 2 times
  • hey, wrap it 3 times!
  • wrap it around your neck and pull it through like a lariat
  • wrap it twice and tie a knot on the longer layer
  • wrap it twice and pull one strand close to your neck like a choker
I know there's more where that came from--play with it and find out which way suits you!!!  P.S. Don't forget today's the last day to get the Pearl Drop necklace for FREE (when you place an order of $125 or more through my website)--which, by the way looks fabulous with the layering pearls!!!

Travel with JK!

OK, the last time I was in San Francisco was about 10 years ago, on a trip with my college roommates.  We saw the sights, went to the broadway, and ate and laughed til we were sick.  Good times.  Memories like this need to be cherished.  Which I do, around my neck.  :)  I love the "city stick" charm series which celebrate destinations all over the globe, from Rome to Hawaii.  And even if you've never been to an exotic location, but have dreams to someday, live through your charm til your dreams come true!!

Gorgeous Jewel Kade Displays

 A lot of people wonder if they have what it takes to be a Jewel Kade stylist and create an awe-inspiring display without an interior design degree.  I'm here to tell you anybody can do it!  I am the queen of copy-cat!  Give me a picture, and I can duplicate it.  Here are some pictures of a couple of my display ideas, and the first one is my sister's, Mary Haeberle, the only JK stylist in Rexburg, ID!  She really knows how to put things together, and without breaking the bank.  The displays here each cost under $100 (and that's including the table!).  Here are a few tips for pulling it off:
  • Only display the amount from your kit, so the choices aren't so overwhelming for customers.  Also, it shows potential stylists that successful parties are achievable with what comes in the kit and they don't have to own every item.  That's what the catalog is for.
  • Have something simple to hook the necklaces on, and a separate dish for the charms, so customers can create their own unique combinations.
  • Have a simple mirror so they can see how fabulous they look!
  • Have a small dress form to display the hostess gifts on, as well as her "wish list."
 I also like to put out my calendar and business cards.  A separate decorative dish can be used for seasonal items, or other accessories.  You can also change it up depending on the season with decorative table clothes or silk flowers.  I buy everything on sale at Hobby Lobby or Ross, which makes it not only affordable, but enjoyable for repeat hostesses!!
This is a simple display we did for a bridal show here in Boise--even at trade shows, you don't have to go over the top! We only displayed the items that would be most appealing to brides, mainly initial charms and anything sparkly or with a crown, since they are a queen for the day!  I truly believe that "less is more" when it comes to your displays, and I have had several $1000 parties to prove it! 

I would love to have you join my team--you could be the first JK stylist in your area--seize this amazing opportunity!!

P.S. Be sure to head on over to Twitter and follow and retweet my status to be entered in the drawing for a FREE Mother's Day charm, drawing to be held April 30!!
