The Boston bombing not only effected the state of Massachusetts but the whole entire country. What was suppose to be a joyous event turned into a nightmare for so many. So many people were hurt physically and emotionally and unfortantely we also suffered some losses. We may be down but we are not out, and as a country we will stand together and support one another, because that is who we are. Let us be people of action and help change this world. Let us not tear down our brothers and sisters but lift each other up. Let us support Boston in their time of need. A place in Cincinnati created a special shoe tag to honor the Boston Marathon Victims. The shoe tag is small and made out of sterling silver and a great way to show support.

“It is a way for others to keep the victims in their memory,” says Welling, a designer at
Welling and Co. “I felt like it was something I needed to create.”

So on April 25, a story came out about a women who accidentally swallowed a $5,000 diamond...YES! a Diamond! She didn't mean to and the diamond was later recovered, but you have to read the rest of the story to see how things worked out for her.
A woman has swallowed a $5,000 diamond at a charity event in Tampa, Florida over the weekend in an incident that left organizers at the event stunned.
Tina Wojtkielo Snyder’s article on responsible manufacturing (“Doing the Right Thing,” Sept. ’09) is a refreshing perspective on the realities of bringing product to market in a culture that oversimplifies some very important issues. Buzzwords like Green, Recycled, and Made in America can represent the very essence of their definitions, or they can fuel the spin behind the marketing Ponzi schemes that seem to be so prevalent in our society. Picture the elderly woman hurting for money, selling her gold jewelry to the stranger behind a table set up at a hotel. He pays her half of what it is worth. That gold can end up at a refiner who can claim it as recycled or green. Unfortunately, the motivation and result here might not be the shade of green you had in mind.
In the Cosmopolitan article "It Messes With My Golf Swing" And Other Reasons Guys Don't Wear Wedding Rings posted on April 16, 2013, Ann Breslaw strings together ramblings from men who don't like the idea of wearing a wedding band.
Personally, I don't golf at all, but from listening to the golfers talk, anything that messes with their swing might actually help. Every golfer I talk to in private tells me how bad the other ones are. And if they all cheat on the scorecards, why not slip the ring off and cheat on their wives as well…
What is Ann Breslaw’s point? As a jeweler with over 42 years of experience, I feel qualified enough to ask this question and answer it as I don’t see a point at all.This is a great example of BWP (Brain-fart, Write it, Publish it). The writer takes something as innocuous as men's wedding bands, and determines there is social debate. I design because I can put my art on people and sometimes, they relate an emotion, a special moment or feeling, to something I've created. That's a fist pump for a designer. But Ms. Breslaw doesn't understand any of that. She participates in discrediting designers and craftspeople by introducing Mr. Symbol of Profit to the readers.
It is very common for soon to be brides to have a formal trial hair run. You find someone who you believe can create a beautiful hair design that will compliment your beautiful wedding dress. You tell the hairdresser what you envision and hope that it can be executed. Once you have agreed on the perfect look, you have one less thing to worry about. We are so glad to be able to get in contact with Kristyann D'Errico who is hairdresser in New Jersey and a indie author. We are so glad that she took time to tell us about who she is and the incredible work she does.

April 1, 2013 New York, NY Robert Manse Designs announced today that they will be manufacturing and marketing an extraordinary new line of one of a kind designs that are just “out of this world”! The company has long touted their wares as being made in Bali by skilled artisans in his family workshops in the volcanic hills of Indonesia. Today Robert announced the launch of their newest ethereal collection which features a design element which does not have our planet in its origins. The company maintains that their product will still be hand crafted in the USA with precious metals in silver and 18 kt gold but the stones featured in each setting will literally be from another world! The alien origins of these supernatural stones will be extraterrestrial. These gems are being mined by robotic drones on Earth’s nearest celestial bodies, our moon and the closest planet to us --Mars.
Robert Manse has been in the jewelry industry for over 20 years. He designs the latest trends in Silver, Silver & Gold, CZ, Diamonds and Gemstones with factory partners all over the world.
His authentic, Indonesian hand-made line of jewelry is crafted in Bali, the Island of the Gods. Each piece is lovingly created by hand and finished with the same care as the gift offerings Bali prepares daily for the Gods. Inspired by lush landscapes and the exotic colors of the islands, Robert combines high quality gemstones, precious Sterling Silver and solid 18kt gold accents to enhance the beauty of each piece.
