I  enjoy wearing the Large Rolo Chain with a gold “B” Crest Insignia Charm, along with the Pastime Music Charm and the sterling silver/brass Crown Charm. I like the way the Large Rolo Chain catches the eye. I was never typically attracted to the crown symbol in the past until I saw this one. I love how it’s not overly feminine especially when paired with the Large Rolo Chain, but it still has a slight touch of femininity. The crown, to me symbolizes strength. It also reminds me that I am worthy and deserving of great things. The Pastime Music Charm is very personal to me. My mother’s side of the family is very artistic and musical so growing up it has always been a part of my life that has brought me joy. I like to add the miniature gold “B” Crest Insignia Charm (my initial) for a little pop of color that is a nice contrast with the silver, and also makes the brass in the crown stand out.

I have always been the type of person who wants to wear something that no one else has. My life and moods are ever changing and I show that with the jewelry I wear. Some days I like to wear a simple single charm for a more natural look and other days I go for something bolder. What I love about WP is that you can mix and combine pieces, so the possibilities are endless! It’s always fun for me to see what other people put together because it gives me a little insight into their unique personalities and it’s nice how you can express your individuality through this jewelry. I feel throughout one’s life there are significant lessons, people, and experiences–wearing Waxing Poetic jewelry is a way for me to remember these special moments…

Carrying Dad With Us

A huge thank you to Amber Beckham who was kind enough to share this touching story about how she and her sisters keep the memory of their father close to their hearts by wearing matching Antique Brass Insignia Charms on the Baby Ball Gold Chain Necklaces and allowing us to pass it along to you…

When we were in Florida for our annual trip with my eldest sister’s family, Lesli, she, in her most amazing gift giving way, pulled out a present for Briana and I one evening as we sat on the couch. She began to explain that it was “an early Father’s Day gift.”

My heart skipped a beat half in fear and half in excitement thinking that we were celebrating him a month before it was time for that holiday to be here and really, that we were approaching the subject of Father’s Day as sisters. It made me happy and sad at the same time.

Lesli has an incredible way of finding unique, beautiful, and meaningful gifts. And this time would have to top any others she has pulled out of her hat. We opened small boxes to find an engraved necklace with the letter, “D” on it, for “Dad” and his initials and dates on the back all in gold and silver. It looks like the old fashioned mail seals that you would use to send a letter to someone. But as I write, I think how funny that is…and ironic, that it’s a necklace, but it looks like a wax seal. It’s like dad is sealed on our hearts as we remember him every day we are alive, not just on Father’s Day.

What an honor to wear this. I am thinking of dad today in a special way, somewhat sad and contemplative…but I remain nostalgic. I know I can speak for both Briana, Lesli, and our brother Zach that we are carrying dad with us today. Happy Father’s Day…We love you, Dad.

I have always loved my Risk Spirit Stamp Charm on my Twisted Link with Silver Rings Chain. This combination describes my outlook on life. I try to live my life by having a little fun and taking risks.

I love this chain, because it is unique and not something you see every day. It also complements the Spirit Stamp Charm well to make this look very simple yet still edgy. I also like combining it with my other charms and chains like my Realize True Riches Key or my Baby Insignia A to make a whole new look and new story.

I love that Waxing Poetic’s jewelry can be made into so many combinations that are fun and fit different personalities and stories.

I’m currently in love with the silver twisted link with brass rings chain. I love the elegant and feminine feel to the chain. It has the simple yet girlie look that fits my particular style.  I also like the contrast of the brass and silver links that makes the whole necklace pop when I wear it.  I typically wear my chain with the medium poetic cross, December birth ornament charm, and a silver crest insignia in the letter C.  In true Waxing Poetic style, this particular combo tells a story that I hold close to my heart.

But I also like to combine what I like to think of as our more feminine or pretty pieces with this chain, like the Storybook, Mother of Pearl and—another one of my absolute favorites—Realize True Riches charms!

Constantly working with customers and helping them create their own stories behind their necklaces, makes it really hard to not fall in love with every piece. I personally like to work first from the chain. I think each chain has its own style, for whatever I feel like for the day.  When I’m feeling “girlie” I go for my twisted link chain and when I feel a little “edgy” I grab my long baby ball or large rolo chain.  That’s what I love about Waxing—there is something for every style, story, and memory.
