You Got This!

Hello, Fabulous!  Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you are yours are staying safe during these Coronavirus pandemic times.

I wanted to let you know, “You got this!”  And because you have weathered many storms in the past, this is no different.  However, it is a great time to definitely practice good hygiene in terms of washing your hands, coughing in your arm, and wiping everything, and I mean everything down!  Oops!  I almost forgot, keep your hands out of your face!  I see you!

You Got This! 1

So what have you been doing with yourself while on lockdown? As for me, I have been keeping up with my yearly reads from the “The One Year Bible,” New Living Translation.  And you wouldn’t believe how some of what’s happening today, that bible has already spoken about it.  Plagues, separation with being ceremonially unclean, we know it as quarantine today.  The book is worth the read!  It gives you all the deets!

I had stopped walking for a while, but have since started back, and boy does it feel good getting back into shape.  And also listening to great music, preaching and teaching.  Are you doing some sort of exercise?  If so, what?

Be Positive

Hey There Beautiful People, here’s a quick note to encourage you to be positive when there are so many reasons you could be negative.  You know what I mean.  When you go to the grocery store to get that toilet paper and there’s none on the shelf and the person in front of you has more than enough.  I’m just say’in!

Anyway, during these pandemic times, we want our words to remain as positive as possible, especially when it’s so easy to become frustrated and say the wrong thing.  In essence, “Speak Life.” Build up, not tear down.  No complaining…….I know, we all slip up from time to time.

In case you’re wondering, “Speak Life” is taken from Proverbs 18:21, and says,” The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (NIV)  In plain English, you have what you say, so choose your words carefully.

Be Positive

Quintan Johnson, Owner of Out of the Box Fashion, is styling our “Speak Life” t-shirt that’s available with the lips, or with a microphone.  Quantities are limited!  Check them out!. And also, check out Quintan’s Blog for fashion tips and the latest trends.

Can’t think of a way to style this tee, here are some examples:  wear casually with a pair of jeans, with cute leggings and jacket as shown above, with your workout clothing,  with a cute maxi skirt.  The possibilities…….  I would love to see how you style your t-shirt.

Share some of the ways in which you choose to be positive in the comments below.

It is easy to lose our sense of normalcy during this time of social distancing.  The Coronavirus has disrupted our world causing us to sanitize our hands on a continual basis, wipe down, cough in our sleeves, and constantly be aware of where we are and what we touch!  In addition to all of this, we are being forced to communicate and conduct business in a manner.

This post showcases one of our customers styling this ‘One of a Kind’ Agate and Crystal piece, which is Shades of Blue.  It definitely makes a statement! Isn’t she gorgeous?!

What’s interesting is, I typed this post and somehow lost everything that I typed.  No worries.  I still want to encourage you to keep yourselves healthy, safe, and to not lose hope.  Remember Romans 8:28.  Everything will work out!

Amid all the frenzy, we would love to hear what you are doing to stay healthy and sane?



Hello Beautiful People, What’s been happening?  I have added a few new hoops to the site, as well as kept the clearance items posted until their gone.

It’s safe to say I am a hoops supplier.  It doesn’t matter what I handcraft, a pair of hoops always seem to manifest!  They’re versatile and everyone needs a pair in their jewelry arsenal.

Whether beaded, wired, natural gemstones and pearls are just a few of the materials we use to create our hoops.  Do you have a favorite pair of hoops?  Share them in the comments.   Don’t forget to opt-in to receive updates if you haven’t already done so.

Hello! 4

Have questions, or know a boutique that might be a great fit for GEM Designs, send us a message.



Hey Beautiful People, It’s Friday!  I have uploaded my first pair of shoes!  In case you didn’t know, I have always wanted a boutique with accessories and what better way to implement that vision than through adding items to my online site.

The items on the site will be select new and preowned. Now although some of the items will be preowned, the condition will be mint.  You can rest assured that if I wouldn’t wear it, I will not try and sell it to you!


Our Mission is to “Promote Fine Quality Accessories while providing Exceptional Service.  So with that in mind, are you in search of a particular thing as it relates to the details?  I guess I should qualify what details I’m talking about.  They’re anything that completes your outfit, i.e. belts, scarves, brooches, shoes, handbags, you get the picture. So send me a note and let me know what you think of this new process.

Before I start to go on and on, I want to hear from you   Leave us a comment below.

Until next post, Peace!
