New to working from home or feeling burnt out on the daily remote professional grind?
Quick tip. Speaking from experience, working daily from a home office and studio, one piece of advice I can share is GET DRESSED! Just because you are not going in to an office or public setting, doesn’t mean live in your favorite flannel pajamas, as tempting as it may be. Even the appeal of wearing exclusively Spandex ensembles can quickly wear off and take its toll on your overall emotional well-being.
You don’t have to wear designer gear, but what you see in the mirror matters. If you don’t look and feel ready to face the world, it can affect your productivity. And what about all the perfectly wonderful pieces hanging in your closet collecting dust? Making your appearance somewhat of a priority each day while working from home is definitely a boost most will find they may need. You might also find that your productivity and focus will grow as a result.
Getting dressed, really dressed, each day is the same mentality as making your bed in the morning – a small victory that sets the day up for success. Of course, accessories also make everything better too so don’t be afraid to add a little bling to your day as well😉.
Stay positive. Be well. Shine on! ✨💖

How ETTA JANE Jewelry is Made
A new collection of earring designs has been completed. Then comes the manufacturing process, which can seem like an eternity!
All of our designs are created in house. From a carefully hand-drawn sketch, to the computer to develop the detailed 3D models on CAD software. The files and our specifications are then sent off to be ‘brought to life’.
The manufacturing process starts with 3D printing and lost-wax casting. The pieces are cast in metals that are made of 100% refined cast alloys, with 100% ethical-sourcing practices and fair-trade. And finally, a precise finishing and hand polishing process is performed.
We are beyond excited to receive the new earring design samples…TODAY! To hold a tangible result of our work and to see them shine. To try them on and share them with the world. The anticipation of new pieces is always so exciting!

What is something you SWORE you would never do but now do on the regular?
When I was in my early 30s I swore I would never try Botox. I remember shrieking in disgust, all high-and-mighty with my smooth skin, "Can you BELIEVE girls are injecting POISON into their foreheads to get rid of wrinkles?! I'm never doing that!" Fast forward ten years & I've got my injector on speed dial.
Inspired by historic London architecture, the London cuff is a modern take on vintage city style. Windows and columns wrap the wrist in edgy chic style. Perfect for dressing up or down.
Headed for a tropical vacation? Don't forget the jewelry! Try these pieces & look ultra chic while your kicking it by the water.

The details that you have to tend to when you are starting up are ENDLESS! When you only have two people to tackle product development, marketing, and business issues, focus is everything. It’s easy to blow the day working on all the fun things which may or may not be the most critical things.
One thing that has helped us stay focused is to dedicate a portion of every day to our most critical tasks. As a business, I mostly work on all things related to business and marketing while my partner manages all things product. No matter what I have on my list for the day, I try find three things I can do get us closer to our sales goals. Whether it is making progress on a campaign, reaching out to prospects, or getting our products listed in new places, I find three things I can get done on top of everything else on my list for the day.
Before trying your cuff on for the first time, find the narrowest part of your wrist on the thumb-side of your hand. This is where your cuff will slide on.
ETTA JANE cuffs come with a roomy opening that will comfortably slide onto most wrists. If you need a little more room, take your cuff and very gently stretch the two ends apart, just wide enough to fit over the narrowest part of your wrist. To do this, use your hands to firmly grip each end of the cuff and gently pull the ends away from each other.
Next, turn your cuff sideways and slide it onto your wrist, turning your arm into the bracelet until it is correctly positioned.
To tighten your cuff, put your entire other hand over the cuff and gently squeeze just enough so the cuff won’t slide off, but you can still slip it off your wrist, reversing the process. From here, you can slide your cuff up or down your arm for a tighter or looser fit.
Cuffs have a bold, chic look worn in singles or in stacks.
