You Spin Me Right Round, Baby, Right Round...

♥ Want to find out how to get 50% off a Pretty Peacock ring? Scroll down to the Blue text!! ♥

Okay, sorry for that because if you're anything like me, that lovely song by Dead or Alive is going to be in your head all day!! (Click here to see the video...ahhh, the '80s) ~ or, if you born after the '70's, you probably prefer the newer version by Flo Rida.

I love rings. Because I was always surrounded by jewelry growing up (East Indian women (and men!) deck themselves out in jewelry as a way of life!!) I have naturally gravitated towards designing and creating jewelry. I, however, am not one to be decked out head to toe in jewelry. I like simple, meaningful pieces that can handle some abuse. The ring is the perfect choice! Strong, simple, subtle, and packs a statement!

After having made sets of custom wedding rings for friends and clients alike, I am now creating ring designs that I am carrying on my website. I have only just started listing pieces, but there will be several designs to come - I just need to find the time to photograph and list them, which is not going to happen with the Mother's Day rush upon me!! (DON'T FORGET MOM on MAY 10th ~ She will NOT be happy!!!)

I have listed two of my best sellers - my "Thick is Good" band in Sterling Silver, and my "Sweet Love" ring with faceted stone. All my rings will allow for personalization...whether that means the names of children, or your mate, or creating a stacked set with your wedding vows on it, perhaps? I created a stacked set with one ring having a poem my husband wrote for me way-back-when stamped all around it, and then the other two having my favorite quotes. That's what makes pieces like this so special - because they are SO uniquely YOU!

What will be listed next? Well, those stacking rings I mentioned, simple posey rings (who doesn't love a posey ring?) and rings that have multiple birthstones to represent family members. And THUMB RINGS! OOOhhhhh, I love thumb rings!!

When will they be listed? I should add pieces from the next couple of weeks onto forever - I never stop designing and if you have a design idea that you would like brought to life - let me know! If it becomes a "staple" design on my site, your ring will be discounted 50%!!!!

Contact me and let me know your thoughts!!

Need Some Good Karma? TPP Featured Item of the Week for April 12th - April 19th...

Every week, The Pretty Peacock website is going to offer 10% off a Featured Item of the Week AND for TPP Blog readers, you will also receive FREE SHIPPING (USPS First Class) by putting in TPP in the discount code area at check out.

This week's feature is from our GOOD KARMA Collection ~ which is our eco-friendly, fine silver line, here's more info:

What is fine silver? Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver - versus Sterling's 92.5% composition. Fine silver is an incredible material - it actually starts in clay form! Millions of silver particles are suspended in an organic binder, and when the material is heated to a high temperature, the binder burns away and all that is left is 99.9% pure silver!

So, how is it eco-friendly? The millions of fine silver particles are actually 'reclaimed' silver pieces from the tech industry. If the idea of 'reclaimed' silver makes you worry about the quality of your jewelry - it absolutely should not. Fine silver is high quality, high grade silver - without the alloys that cause many people to have an allergic reaction.

Most precious metals require harmful mining to procure. No mining is needed to procure fine silver, which saves the planet from surface scars, loss of depleting elements and acidic by-products that leach out into our water table and soil.

Now you get to adorn yourself with artisan treasures AND keep the planet beautiful - now, that's Good Karma!

Click here to take you directly to this listing - and don't forget to put TPP in the discount code area to get FREE SHIPPING!!!
