I’m also honored to have been asked to share my gemstone energy insights on The Wellness Universe a regular basis. Of course, sharing gemstone info includes sharing more jewelry (at least it does in my head!) so I will have new pieces to coincide each post.

What’s new at ACJ besides a new look? Rings!

assortment of Amy Cousin Jewelry rings

The new ACJ website has been up and running for a few weeks now, and in between finishing custom orders, I’ve had a chance to create something that I’ve wanted to give you for a while now: Rings!

This collection is made up of an assortment of faceted cubed gems suspended between the coiled ends of the ring’s shank – copper, silver or 14k gold filled.

This setting allows you to see all of the pretty and interesting characteristics of the gems. They can be stacked on your fingers or worn as a pendant, so grab a few!

Need help figuring out your ring size? Here’s a handy measurement tool to help.

Ummm, where’d the ACJ site go? Not to worry – it’s right here!

I am finally giving the ACJ website the love it deserves!
What that means is for a very short time, the best way to get to all of the ACJ goodies is directly through my Tictail Marketplace page. So here’s the link.

I’d planned to have it all shiny and new before I announced the big update, but the last thing I want to do is leave you hanging in an endless redirect to my blog. Cause, that’s what happenin’ right now…

So, let’s just avoid the “wait, wasn’t I just here? where’s the site? I need my gemstone energy like right now!” drama and go to

ACJ will be up and running on its own very soon.
Soon… that’s oh so vague, isn’t it? Okay, ACJ will be up and running by the end of June.

It’s June! What else needs to be said?

Fort Hill Farms Lavender Garden

Well, I can add a few more things. For starters, I finally hung up my big ski sweater, which had become standard survival gear in my studio. Working in an open space with lots of natural light has always been high on my dream studio must-have list, so I tried to not complain too much.

More ACJ in more places. I am delighted to announce that Amy Cousin Jewelry can be found in two new locations!

Homespun Decor and Gifts –  Minneapolis, Minnesota

I met the husband-and-wife team of Ben Cooney and Jill Hayes last year when ACJ participated in the Twin Cities Social Justice Arts Festival. They recently opened Homespun Decor and Gifts, which features everything from soaps to lamps to jewelry, all handcrafted by 75 Minnesota artists and makers. Needless to say, I’m honored to be in that number. It’s a beautiful shop and I added a few pieces to my wish list while I was delivering my own pendants and earrings. Homespun is located in the Nokomis neighborhood at 5006 34th Avenue South, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

 

Fort Hill Farms and Gardens – Thompson, Connecticut

Spending a day at Kristin Orr’s Fort Hill Farms and Gardens is an experience not to be missed if you’re in the New England area. Every year, she and her family plus staff create a beautiful maze in their 6-acre corn field.  Kristin also has several lavender gardens, from which she makes ice cream and tarts as well as soaps, lotions, and essential oils. She sells them in her Bee-tique, which now features Amy Cousin Jewelry’s line of bottle pendants – perfect for holding Kristin’s amazing lavender essential oil.

Happy Spring!!!
Okay, so a lot of areas have been spring-like for a while so my exuberance might draw a yawn, but Spring! Up here in Minnesota, it’s finally starting to look like spring is coming. This season is about renewal – a time to step outside, stretch and grow. Here are a few sources that I have been writing and contributing to articles that are geared toward renewal and strengthening our Light.

Here are a couple of sources that I have been contributing articles and quotes to that are geared toward renewal and strengthening our Light.

Mind Key, an online community of healing professionals, recently published an article on getting outdoors as a way to tap into renewal. I am honored to have been quoted in the article with my Greenery Earrings featured.

Black Girl In Om first and foremost “Creates a space for women of color to breathe easy”. For Founder Lauren Ash, this is an inclusive statement that she uses to help open the doors to yoga, meditation, healthy food choices, spirituality and creativity to women who might otherwise feel left out. Here is the first part of an article I wrote for BGIO on blue gemstones associated with Serenity. The second part of the article will be published soon.

ACJ’s anniversary + my birthday = giving to get.

acj flash bday sale-pablo

Thanks to everyone for all of the birthday wishes last week!

To be honest, I was deep under the weather – okay, I had the flu – for the last 2 weeks, and my birthday, which is also the anniversary of Amy Cousin Jewelry, was the last things on my mind. I slept. a. lot. last week. Feeling much better now, and I’m getting back into my studio.

Because I was dragging so, I didn’t think about doing anything special or having my annual sale. I thought I’d just let it pass especially since I’d  just participated in the Tictail Valentines Day curated collection. But today I got an offer that is pretty much the best gift I could ever get – something I’ve wanted for a while. I know I’m being vague, and I hope to be able to reveal more soon.

I have a very short window to seize this gift and so I’m offering a gift to you, yes, in order to get a gift for myself. I actually think this came to me as a tap on my shoulder to not blow off my annual celebration!
So here it is – my gift to you. I’m having a flash sale Today – 40% off of everything on my website. You don’t need a code. Just get everything you want and the discount will be applied at checkout.
