Five Years of Pink

Lindsay Van Cleave

Wow! So much has happened in five years and yet it feels like yesterday too. Thank you for supporting me the last five years. It means the world to me and supports an incredible cause - earlier.org. I truly enjoy connecting with my loyal customers each and every year. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. 

It's also inevitable that each year I hear someone new who is battling this disease. What  is so amazing though is the positivity and sheer will to not get knocked down. I saw first hand and what I see every single year is the strength and determination to fight back. It's not just those fighting who are incredibly brave, it's those that are standing by them as well. There is strength in being on the sidelines too.

Each year I choose to not focus on the scary and sadness that this disease can cause, but celebrate that inner spirit...that inner bravery. After a five year journey, I wanted to take a quick look back at all of the bracelets that have adorned mine and your wrists. All carefully chosen and made by hand.

Below are 2012 and 2013. The blush pink color Emmie (right) was the very first. I chose that color because it was a warm and fuzzy tone like a smile. The color reminded me of my Mom right away. Always smiling, always positive.  The pop of pink Emmie (left) was next. It was time to have a little fun.

In 2014 I felt like there was too much "pink" every October so I wanted to create a chic and classy bracelet (left) that was a reminder, but a fantastic piece to wear every day. Hands down, still my favorite!

Then in 2015, I went a little simpler (right). I used a bead that was handblown glass made by a woman in Hawaii whom my husband and I met on our honeymoon right before my Mom passed away.

Last year was another one of my favorites. It was my fifth bracelet and I wanted to throw caution out the window. I had so much fun making all of these personalized combinations. Each swarovski crystal represented someone special or a special date to each customer. Above all my Mom celebrated and loved her friends and family so this was perfect for year five.

I'm sitting here impatiently waiting for my gemstones to arrive for the 2017 limited edition breast cancer bracelet so I can share it! It's still all in my head. Eek, I CAN'T wait to share it with you. I have to admit though, I was really stuck this year and then one word hit me. It was perfect. I'm bursting to share it!

As with all of my pieces, I am passionate about using high quality materials.  I worked really hard this year to price the materials just right, but not sacrifice quality. I make all of these bracelets to stack, so please wear them together!  This year's bracelet is $38. Get your Christmas list ready!

Thanks again and stay tuned! 

Thank YOU for all your SUPPORT!

Lindsay Van Cleave

Taking a moment to say THANK YOU for supporting me this October. I enjoyed seeing the beautiful and meaningful combinations that everyone put together.

I purposely chose each and every Swarovski stone for each month to make them fun and meaningful to YOU. My favorite part is that much like all the moments in your life. They are all different, but that's what makes up you. 

Here's a look at some of my top 5 favorite ideas that YOU came up with along the way. 

1. A bracelet for firsts. First job, first apartment, first time leaving home, first pet, first home...

2. A modern friendship bracelet. Wear all of your best friends birthdays on your wrist to remember all of those fun and crazy memories.

3. Honoring anniversaries. Your engagement, your wedding anniversary, your parents wedding anniversary. 

4. Family over everything. Honoring all of those in your family. Near or far, here or in the sky. 

5. Moments in time. Those moments that every time you think of them it puts a huge smile on your face. Hold onto them and never let them go. 

 

To create your own, go to the link here. Please let me know if you have ANY questions. I'm happy to help in any way. (If you are ordering for the holidays all orders close the first week in December as they are all made to order. )

I'm also excited to gear up for the holidays. A peak at one of my favorites. Link here

Mixing Up the PINK this Year! Let's Support Earlier Detection of Breast Cancer

Lindsay Van Cleave

Each year I celebrate my Mom who had a courageous fight with Breast Cancer and support a Greensboro organization that's close to my heart - earlier.org . For the 2016 bracelet, I'm throwing caution to the wind and MIXING it up! Above all else, my Mom loved family and friends. It was her life and her legacy. So this year I celebrate all of those fun loving and crazy combinations! To read more about my journey with BRCA2 and why I support earlier detection of breast cancer each year, please go here

How Does It Work?

It's easy! You choose the months to celebrate and I mix it up for you. Honor whoever makes you smile in your life or even an event. Combinations so far have been...

Wedding Anniversaries

Siblings Birthdays

Friends Birthdays

Cousins Birthdays

Parents Wedding Anniversaries

In Memory of Someone 

Graduation Dates

Baby Births

The list could go on and on. Just have fun! If you add a birthstone in memory of someone, I will add a star to your bracelet. I truly believe our loved ones watch over us in the stars.

If you have multiple people to celebrate in the same month, you can add the same Swarovski crystal bead more times or just use one to signify the month.

For my bracelet, I chose to celebrate my Mom, my daughter, my son and my husband. I am making one next to honor all my best girlfriends that help me navigate this crazy world on a daily basis. I can't wait!

And yes! The pink is still in there too. It's just a little blinged this year! 

2016 and 2014 Breast Cancer Support Bracelet Stacked 

2016 and 2014 Breast Cancer Support Bracelet Stacked 

Choose AS MANY birthstones as you like. Mix it up, have fun and SMILE! My Mom would love this idea! 

This year's bracelet is made to order so start planning holiday gifts now! Each bracelet is handmade with Swarovski crystals and silver filled beads. Like gold fill jewelry, silver fill is a thick layer of sterling silver that will not tarnish easily with proper care. They are perfect for stacking with all of your other bracelets too!

A percentage of the proceeds supports Earlier.org  - the nation's only breast cancer charity focused exclusively on supporting research for new discoveries of an innovative biological test to detect breast cancer earlier. 

I would love it if you would share with your friends and family! So important to spread the word!

Glam From the Studio: New Jet Set Honeymoon Collection

Lindsay Van Cleave

I am going to be doing more traveling over the next few months and it got me thinking about being able to grab a "go to" small collection of earrings to go from day to night throughout the trip. After all the wedding preparations, couples want to kick back and relax on their honeymoon. With keeping things easy in mind, I put together a collection of trios.

What's Your Bridal Color | Dress + Jewelry + Make Up

Lindsay Van Cleave

As a professional MUA, it is my business to invest in every aspect of my client’s occasion I’m being hired for. Like photographers and event planners, I need to know what the lighting will be like, I need to know the color scheme, I need to know the temperature. I pretty much study every aspect I possibly can before I even apply any makeup on my client. However, on top of all of the logistical details I have to know about the event, I most importantly need to make sure any/all makeup reflects the personality and essence of my client.

Boudoir is not for ANYONE else. It's for YOU.

Lindsay Van Cleave

If you are like me, you may be shy and unsure if a boudoir session is for you. I asked Autumn Rudolph who specializes in boudoir photography to break it down for us ladies. I love her nurturing, uplifting and empowering take on her boudoir sessions.

Glam Finds: Eikoh Design Studio

Lindsay Van Cleave

To kick off my Wedding Wednesday "Glam Finds" series, I'm really excited to share the beautiful handcrafted work of Jaime from Eikoh Design Studio. I fell in love with Jaime's beautiful glassware from a styled shoot I worked on a few months ago in Charlotte, NC. She's a fellow Baltimorean, so I knew I needed to tell you about her gorgeous sandblasted wedding stemware. There are so many unique designs. This beautiful glassware makes the perfect glam wedding gift. Champagne flutes for an engagement party or wine glasses for bridal shower. So many options!

Glam From the Studio: Mint & Blush Bridesmaid Bracelet

Lindsay Van Cleave

I've been stretching my creative wings and having fun with styled shoots this winter. Styled shoots are a great way for photographers, planners and vendors to collaborate, get their creative juices flowing and shoot some AMAZING bridal inspiration. 

When I saw that the talented Hannah Lane Photography was having a Charleston inspired styled shoot at the swoon-worthy Sunshine Oaks Retreat, I knew I need to jump on board! She had me at "Charleston". Hello plantations and gorgeous willow trees!

Glam from the Studio: Romantic Modern Elegance

Lindsay Van Cleave

A Peek Behind the Glam

Each week I'll give you a look behind the scenes of my jewelry. I had this beautiful thick square piece of rose gold fill wire around the studio for quite some time. I had a vision in my head for a modern/elegant collar necklace.

A styled shoot opportunity came up that focused on a romantic bride featuring a long sleeved laced gown with a GORGEOUS neckline. PERFECT! I can't share the styled shoot just yet, but let me tell you. It is stunning! I'm thrilled the way this necklace came together too. It really captures the romantic spirit of a modern bride. Would be really pretty on bridesmaids too.  

This necklace is hand hammered by me from 14K rose gold wire. Adorned with 14K gold fill chain, freshwater pearls and crystal clear swarovski crystals.
