Monday Madness: January Gem
Posted on January 02 2017
This, rich, simplistic, and quietly stunning necklace is brought to you in the name of blessings! To the women at Michele F, January has always been a month to celebrate, as it holds Michele’s birthday (and other kick-ass women’s birthday’s) but it is now also the month that our latest little blessing is said to be making her arrival! As we (not so patiently) wait for Danielle to deliver our little blessing, we pray that her arrival is safe and timely. So, cheers to beautiful garnet stones, the countless blessings upon us all in the New Year, and to strong women making their appearances in the month of January!
A bit about garnets:
