I'm still in my quest for creative gift ideas, and further chatting with the Fabulous Artistic Mom Team led me to a wonderful jewelry shop called Michon. Her unique pieces are wonderfully simple yet dramatic and would be an awesome gift for anyone on your list! Some of my favorite things in her shop are her stud earrings. They are so practical for moms and even says that in the descriptions. (I would like to send a huge thank you to my darling Remy for yanking out and throwing the only pair of diamond earrings I ever had... okay, sarcasm ends here.) Here's a little bit about Leah, the artist behind Michon in her own words amidst some pictures of her lovely work.
~Tell me a little about yourself:
"I'm a mom to a toddler with another baby on the way. I run a jewelry making business part time out of my home, mostly during nap time or when my son goes to sleep."
~Inspiration behind your shop:
"My shop name, Michon, is actually my middle name- I've always liked it, and I thought it sounded like a designer's name, so when I started designing my own jewelry it was natural to use as my business name. I've been making jewelry since I was a teenager, but I didn't stat making things to sell until after I graduated from college, when it became too expensive to be a hobby."
~Favorite Gift Ideas from your shop:
"I think earrings make great gifts. I have a variety of earrings, from basic hoops and studs to classic pearl drops, to more unique artsy styles."
~Best gift you've ever gotten:
"I have to say the support my husband and I have gotten from my parents since starting our family is the best gift."
