KILLINGWORTH >> Growing up, jewelry designer Kelley Solomon was fascinated with trinkets, beads and stones and found she had a knack for creating new pieces from the elements of older necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Ive been playing with beads since I was 10, Solomon said. I would be stringing things together and doing fun little projects for people. Solomon, 34, of Killingworth, opened up her first company blog called KDesign in 2002 on Marthas Vineyard after her family spent a lot of time there. A graduate from Marist College New York with a degree in art and photography, Solomon attended fashion school briefly in Pennsylvania. However, fashion was tough for Solomon and while she stayed in jewelry for a little while, she found herself working in retail at the White Dress on the Shore in Clinton with Beth Chapman. Beth got me back into doing jewelry, Solomon said.

You want to give people a unique piece. Already when you use that shell, Mother Nature is giving you that unique piece because theyre not the same color all the time. So its just how to enhance it so theyll be satisfied. Benaventes pieces still feature spondylus shells in different hues of purples, reds and oranges. They are often polished and refined a big step up from the common, rustic, single shell money beads. I try to show elegant version of the casual, she says. I get discouraged when people tell me Well I only wear mine on special occasions. Every day of your life is a special occasion. (Page 2 of 2) For women, she also offers an alternative to the sinahi, now that more woman have been sporting smaller versions of the traditional mens piece, often of giant clam, or hima, shell. In Chamorro, sinahi means new moon. Artists make the sinahi with a variety of other materials, including dense ifit wood and even stalactites and stalagmites.

How an Arizona teen turned her jewelry passion into a multimillion-dollar business

"This rule will not affect families who currently use the program as intended, which is to provide food, shelter and clothing for families," Sonnier said in a statement. About 3,500 households in Louisiana receive welfare benefits, and about 2,400 households get kinship care subsidies, according to the department. Average payments are $192 per month for welfare and $419 a month for kinship care. The emergency regulations come a week after WAFB-TV in Baton Rouge reported that an Ascension Parish lingerie store posted a sign noting that it accepted the welfare benefits card along with most credit cards. Also barred in the latest restrictions from taking welfare debit cards are video arcades, bail bond companies, cruise ships, psychics, adult-entertainment businesses, nightclubs, bars and any businesses where minors are not allowed. Violators of the new regulations will stop receiving welfare benefits for a year for a first offense, two years for a second offense and permanently for a third offense, according to the social services department. The department also said it is seeking to enact the restrictions in law and allow the state to fine retailers who don't follow the guidelines.

Expensive Estate Jewelry Stolen from Bellevue Home

His ongoing fascination with Indian themes is reflected in an imposing Taj Mahal bracelet and earrings in smoky or blue poured glass. These wares offer a convincing imitation of Indian-cut diamonds and cabochons. (Fortunately, however, these are far lighter on the lobes and the wallet than they appear.) Still, any heritage house must modernize for a new generationand that is where falls headline comes in. With its new range of accessibly priced mixed jewelry designed to appeal to both men and women, Goossens is reaching out to a younger, edgier customer. Take, for example, slim gold-plated bangles and rings that snap closed with a top hinge; crystal pendants that rotate (an idea carried over from last seasons Rune collection); and twin bracelets that can be left to jangle on the arm or, thanks to a clever clip, be worn as one piece. That last detail actually caters to the noise-sensitive guys out there. All men hate jangling, Goossens admits.

So in 2010 Weems started selling jewelry at a local mall kiosk. She called the company Origami Owl and logged a remarkable $20 million in sales the first year. Four years later, the company has a professional CEO, employs hundreds of workers and markets its products through 60,000 independent sales representatives nationwide. Retail sales last year surpassed $330 million. Weems, now 17, still oversees the designs of the lockets and charms her company sells and stops by the Chandler, Arizona office almost every day after school. "I want to be involved in the business for the rest of my life," she says in the video above.

Precious, irreplaceable, estate jewelry stolen from her Bellevue home. The victim doens't want to be identified in anyway but explained what happened. She says the thief or thieves only made off with her vintage jewelry, nothing more, and made a clean entrance and get away. It's unsettling because you know if you have a broken window or something you can say oh someone got in that way, but I really have no idea when it happened or how it happened. If anyone recognizes any of the jewelry, get in touch with Sapry County Crime Stoppers at (402) 592-STOP Honor Flight A Trip of a Lifetime
