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 are you excited about this week? ✨🤩
There’s nothing easy about starting a new business. We started with a kernel of an idea, little cash, and an enormous learning curve. We are two moms who ditched our corporate careers to put our experience in design and marketing to work to create an amazing product that we would have a blast sharing with the world. After years of making other products look good, we wanted to create something so amazing it would shine on its own. We set out to break into one of the most competitive industries there is. Here are few things we learned during our first year out.
