There was something about finding out I was pregnant that instantly made me interested in overhauling my wardrobe and lifting really heavy weights. But investing in leather leggings and becoming a weight lifter is neither practical nor safe when your body is overtaken by another tiny human. I’ve got a post-partum closet makeover and muscle-building plan in place but in the meantime I’ve turned my focus towards jewelry.

How I accessorize isn’t limited by my growing waist size, which makes investing in jewelry especially appealing right about now. But there’s also something way more special and lasting about subtle rings and statement necklaces that clothes can’t quite offer. And maybe because I inherited a lot of my jewelry from my mom and grandma, from heirloom rings to fun costume jewelry, I’m starting to think about what I can pass down to my own family one day.

Jennie Claire is a jewelry designer in Austin, TX and Braid ECourse alum who surprised me with this stack of rings and a couple of knuckle rings to rock. She was even thoughtful enough to use the March birthstone, aquamarine, in the stack she sent because Jeremy and I got married in March. The quality of these rings is solid – you can tell they were crafted with care and attention to detail, by hand. I haven’t taken them off my fingers since they arrived. You can check out and order some Jennie Claire jewelry of your own here.

P.S. While I was lucky enough to be receive such an amazing and generous gift from Jen, in no way was I paid or expected to blog about these rings. I just love them that much.

    So honored to have you wearing some of my jewelry, Kathleen! Thank you for your kind words!

    Also, love your thoughts on heirloom jewelry. I’m lucky to have some of my grandma’s and great-grandma’s and it’s served as a huge inspiration for me to create things that I can pass down.

    I LOVE the idea of using birthstones to invoke other milestone months (like your anniversary).
