Earring Naming

The Magi Earrings

The Magi Earrings

The Magi Earrings are named after the three kings, wise men, or magi that we find in Scripture at the time of Jesus Christ's birth. Those of you following me on Instagram actually helped me to name these earrings and I am so glad that out of the three options (Three Kings, Wise Men, or Magi) the name "Magi" won! It is still somewhat of a mystery as to who the Magi actually were, how many there were, and what they looked like. However, we can find a few hints in Scripture. In Matthew 2 we read about the magi coming...

The Athena Earrings

The Athena Earrings

These earrings are named after one of my dearest friends, Athena! Her favorite flower is jasmine, which also inspired the design for these earrings. One of the reasons Athena likes jasmine so much is because of the lovely fragrance they emit. I read that in medieval times the jasmine flower reminded people of Our Blessed Mother because "Mary exhales the sweet fragrance of Jesus Christ." I couldn't think of a more fitting flower for my friend Athena! When I moved to Phoenix to live near my fiance (now husband) I said a prayer that God would place holy people into...

The Barbara Earrings

The Barbara Earrings

These lovely earrings are named after my grandmother who wouldn't leave her house without her "bling bling" as she would call her jewelry! I couldn't release this first collection without a little bling bling named after her.  These earrings reminded me of an animal print and as I thought about it I realized that they reminded me of the black and white print of a cow's coat. One of my favorite memories with my grandma was when I went to go visit her by myself as a high schooler. We were sitting on her back porch as she told me...

The Chiara Earrings

The Chiara Earrings

These earrings are named after two beautiful Chiaras: Bl. Chiara "Luce" Badano and Chiara Corbella Petrillo! As I was trying to think of a name for these striped earrings I realized that both Chiaras are wearing stripes in their well known images! I figured naming these stripe earrings "Chiara" would remind us of them both!  Image of Bl. Chiara Badano in stripes Image of Chiara Corbella Petrillo in stripes Did you know that the name Chiara means "bright" or "light?" This is actually part of the reason why my daughter's middle name is Clairvaux! Claire is the English form of...

The Pier Earrings

The Pier Earrings

The Pier Earrings are named after St. Peter and Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati. After creating these earrings I realized that they reminded me of a storm. I immediately thought of the Scripture story of Jesus walking on the water (Matthew 14:22-33). A storm is raging while Jesus's disciples are out at sea. Jesus came to them and they were terrified thinking He was a ghost. After Jesus tells them not to have fear Peter says, "Lord, if it is you, bid me come to you on the water" (Matthew 14:28). To which Jesus replies, "Come" (Matthew 14:29). Peter steps out...
