All we need is love, right? That’s the thought behind this sweet XOXO necklace from this week’s featured beauty artist, Suzanne Anderson of Suz & Roo. I spotted her stuff at an art show and immediately knew her jewelry would be a perfect fit for my peeps (that would be YOU). This particular necklace is completely sterling silver with a 17″ chain, the round “xoxo” pendant, a red Swarvoski crystal and a silver heart charm. And it comes in an adorable black and white tin with a bright pink ribbon!

Suz used to just create her jewelry for family and friends, but they finally convinced her to started selling her pieces online and at art shows. An art major in college, she says her etsy store and art show appearances give her a reason to create, which gives her such joy! This necklace was created in honor of her grandma, who used to sign all her notes with “xoxo.” That inspires me to ask you today:

What’s one saying, gesture or talent
your grandma had (or has)
that you’ll always remember and cherish? 

Can’t wait to see what you have to share about the wise, wonderful women in your lives! I think mine would be that my Nana frequently – very frequently – recites these words to an old song: “Have I told you lately that I love you? Well, darling, I’m telling you now.” Please make sure your comment includes your email address or a link to your own blog account, with easy access to your email. A winner will be chosen at random and notified after midnight CST this Friday. Hugs and kisses to you all!
