Today is the day! My second collection with electric picks is LIVE and ready for y’all to shop! To be honest, I was a little bit nervous to do a second collection with EP because I truly loved my first collection so much and knew it would be tough to top. But I gotta say y’all…the pieces in this second collection are not only so beautiful and so unique, but have so much special meaning to me as well.
I will walk you guys through my inspiration for each individual piece but before I do that, I wanted to quickly chat about my vision & inspo for this entire collection. When I first started talking with electric picks late last summer about a new collection…I knew I wanted to do something different. I wanted to create unique pieces that I didn’t already have in my jewelry box. I wanted a lot of different textures and for the pieces to really stand out from your other jewelry…which is exactly what we created and why I love these pieces so dang much.
Most of you guys probably know…we have been walking through infertility and all that comes with it over the past 2+ years: IUI, IVF, countless doctor’s appointments, shots, medication, specialists, and as of 14 days ago…walking through my first miscarriage as well. When I was designing this collection, I wanted each piece to symbolize a different chapter of this journey – to represent different aspects that have brought me hope along the way and been true mile markers in my life.
When I was designing this necklace...I knew I had some braided chains as well as some rope chains in my jewelry collection...but I wanted something that was like a braided rope all in one and that's exactly what we created. I love this necklace so much because it can totally stand alone and make a statement but it layers perfectly with nearly anything in your jewelry box. I'm obsessed with the texture of it and that it's not too chunky but still weighty enough to wear on its own.I named this necklace the 'rise' necklace to symbolize all of the sunrise walks I've been on over the past 2+ years praying for a baby but also just listening to the Lord speak to me and comfort me when I've needed it most.shop now
This necklace is probably the most meaningful to me out of the entire collection. The rainbow has been very symbolic to me throughout our infertility journey. On some of my hardest days - a negative pregnancy test I thought for sure would be positive, my sister telling me she's pregnant, bad news from a doctor...I would see a rainbow. Sometimes I'd see the rainbow and think 'oh! God is trying to tell me we are pregnant!' but over time I've learned...every time I see a rainbow, I feel like God is reminding me I am not alone. He sees me. He has a plan for me, even in my darkest days when I can't see that plan. He is sovereign and he promises never to leave me. I love wearing this rainbow every single day as a reminder of that promise.shop now
This necklace is named the Pippa necklace after my mom - Pippa is her grandma name. Ever since I can remember I've always known...my mom LOVES hearts! Heart jewelry, drawing hearts etc. My mom is one of my biggest role models, best friends, and has been a rock for me through infertility and loss.I also wanted to do a heart necklace because I felt like my jewelry collection was lacking a chic yet kinda boho heart. Any heart I had was too cheesy or too big. I love that this heart is an outline and has a feminine twist detail. It is even more stunning in person.shop now
When I started designing this collection I knew I wanted love knot to be involved. I love the texture of it and also the reminder to me of Colossians 3:14 - ~~Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.~~ I love how dainty and simple this ring is. I wear mine on my pointer finger, on my thumb, or stacked on another gold band. This is a ring truly everyone can wear (and will love). Also makes such a pretty + sweet galentine's gift!shop now
When I was designing these hoops, I told EP that I had lots of everyday gold hoops. And I also had statement earrings...but I wanted to create something kind of in between. I love that these hoops are something you can wear everyday but they also make a statement! These have become my go-to hoops for a date night but I also wear them with sweatpants. And they aren't too heavy either. I named them the sunset hoops because sunsets have always been something that remind me of God's majesty and they bring me so much peace!shop now
This collection means so much to me and I can’t wait for you guys to get your hands on these pieces and also wear them every single day! My last collection sold out in 24hrs so if you see something you like…make sure you grab it right away before it’s gone! Also, make sure you tag me on stories so I can see you in your new pieces and then repost on my page! Thank y’all so much for your support + excitement about this collection. Let me know which piece you are the most excited about!!
