I Don’t Blog Much, But When I Do….

….it’s because I have a lot to say. First, I’ll tell you some personal things, then there’s some info at the end of this post about a July Sale!

How are you? Really, how are you? I want to know. I actually tend to know more about my customers than you might realize, but sometimes, long periods of time go by when I don’t hear a peep from you. How do I know the things I know? Well, we follow each other in places like Instagram & some are on my business Facebook page.

Here are some things that have happened this year, this wonderful year of 2016! For starters, it truly has been a magical year for me, one of my best years. Not perfect, but still magical. My two kids are in transitions: my oldest is moving to Arizona to attend a musician’s conservatory and my youngest is starting high school soon. I’m very happy for and proud of them….they are the inspiration for so much in my life.

In the Spring, I got certified as a yoga instructor. It was a transformational experience for me and it will most certainly inspire more jewelry ideas. As some of you may know, I teach barre fitness classes, so adding some yoga in the mix is making things more rich! What I’m mostly interested in doing with my yoga practice is developing yoga sequences for creativity, happiness, courage and all sorts of themes that go along with my jewelry creations and meditations that I’m writing. It’s all a work in progress, but it’s all coming full circle.

In June, my daughter and I took a trip to several places we’d never been to. We were away for three weeks and it was so much fun! I reminisce about it every day and am already planning my next adventures! I do have to admit that I’m not a lover of flying, but I did really well and I think I’m over most of my anxiety about it. There are so many things about this trip that are confidence boosters for me. I never thought I’d have the courage to travel very far for too long without another adult, but I did it and my daughter was amazing to travel with. She learned so much about navigating the details of traveling by train, plane and so much more. Here’s a pic of us (or nine!).IMG_2766

Until I get to travel very far again, I do plan to do some road tripping in California and Arizona and will be offering personal appointments for custom orders on my routes. The custom orders can be anything I offer, even if it’s to collaborate on some charms with personal messages. If you’re interested in meeting, let me know because even if you’re not on my route, I welcome anyone planting some seeds for different places I can go, including flying to where you are (if I can get enough interest in appointments in your general location).

JULY SALE

Long sale information short: Most fingerprint charms are about 30-40% off through the end of July. That’s all you need to know, right?

If you’re visiting family for the summer or have a high school graduate getting ready to move away for college, this is a perfect time to get your Love Touch charms while you have them near. Or if you simply want to update your charms because your babies have grown so much, dive in to the sale!

For orders placed before July 18, you’ll receive a complimentary wire-wrapped Swarovski crystal to attach to any of your jewelry pieces, a $20 value. One per customer.

 

……………

Drop me a note to say hi or anything you want. I’d love to hear from you, and possibly get a chance to see you, too!

Don’t Forget Your Mama ♡

Mother’s Day is May 12. This is one of the busiest times of year for our Love Touch Designs, and those who order in early April and return their fingerprint impressions by May 1 will have  the most special and timelessly beautiful piece of jewelry to give to the mamas in their life on 5/12.

These past few months, I’ve been extra busy taking orders for adult prints as customers are realizing that they want to print their parents, husbands or wives. I’m thinking that if you haven’t printed your own mom, why not consider ordering a design, even a simple charm or pendant, to capture your mom on Mother’s Day? If you’re going to see her on 5/12….make it extra special!

If you’re ordering a kit now to print your mom on 5/12, the kit clay will still be good by the time you use it.

Top 5 And A Half Reasons Why August Is A Very Good Time To Order

When it comes to our Love Touch Designs, there is one steadfast suggestion for ordering these designs……whether you need your design for a holiday gift or not, if you can avoid ordering during high season (November and December), you will reap certain benefits. August is a very good time to order! Here’s why:

1. The kids are home from school. The down time makes for a better printing experience than trying to cram it in after school or on hectic weekends when school starts up again.

2. If you have a college bound child getting ready to leave….now is the time. Enough said about that:)

3. Although we have sales in the fall, we don’t normally have any during high season.

4. This process takes a minimum of one month to complete, though it’s not unusual for it to take 2-3 months due to various circumstances. For example, sometimes customers need to re-do their molds for a better print before we complete their pieces. Or, if you decide to upgrade to a more ornate or Exclusive design while we are in the process of working on your order, ordering well before high season allows for  us to get components needed for your order (during high season, backordered components are not unusual).

5. The truth is, anytime is a good time to order. Our Love Touch Designs are not just jewelry…they are an archive of love captured in silver and no matter when you do it, you will be happy you did…..

  • 5.5……however, we like to encourage people to do this process during non-crazy times of the year! August is one of those times and it’s also the only month we are having an amazing sale for our mailing list subscribers. Contact us addme@tinasteinberg.com with “add me” in the subject line and we’ll send you the August promo code!

Making Gifts That Matter. It’s True.

I remember my first months in business starting October 2003. I actually had not officially started my business. I was playing with beads and making lots of fun jewelry in between making personalized pieces for myself. All the while, I had a one year old sitting on my lap.

I started receiving requests to make personalized moms bracelets for Christmas 2003. I was surprised that people wanted something that my hands created, and that they wanted to gift my creations to their loved ones. I wondered why they didn’t go to the store to get something from a brand they knew and trusted. Then it dawned on me….they wanted gifts that mattered and they trusted me.

It’s amazing how much things have grown since that time and I’m proud of my team that helps to create gifts all year long, and especially around Christmas. We are all about making gifts that matter, the kind that touch people at the core of who they are. We wouldn’t have it any other way and we are looking forward to what this Christmas season brings our way!

Please enjoy special pricing on our most popular Love Touch designs. This offer is good till 11/20/11 and it is our last sale of 2011.

Two 'Little Love Charmer Plus' on a Lite Ball Chain....An inscription comes on the back of each charm!

And in case you missed it, we have all of our ‘I am not afraid. I was born to do this.’designs specially priced while they are on backorder (good through 11/14).

For peaceful warriors....

Thanks for your support!! It’s been a privilege since day one to create what you can’t find in a store and to pour love into a ‘job’ that feeds my soul.

‘Rare Byrd’ Spotlight & Bonus Love Touch Charm With Purchase Of An Exclusive Design

“She Believed She Could, So She Did!”

A year ago, during one of my trips to Portland, OR, I met a vibrant new friend, Amy Thackery of Rare Byrd Creative. She creates beautiful graphics for my marketing materials, has an infectious sense of style & is so fun to meet with over our favorite martini ‘The Bad Habit’. I recently made a very special Love Touch piece for her from the ‘Exclusive Designs Collection’ (see left photo).

Here is a little bit about Amy, in her own words. Be sure to read all the way to the bottom to see how you can receive a bonus fingerprint charm as an add-on to your new ‘Exclusive Design’ order (this month only!).

………………..

“I’m Amy Thackery, owner of a dreamy little design business that is fittingly named Rare Byrd Creative.  I consider myself the Rare Byrd of the biz. I’m an Oregon-grown, mother of 3, small town, rain-loving, hopeless romantic, super creative girl. I’ve been in the business of art since I was about 3-years-old.  As far back as I can remember, I’ve known that I wanted to be some sort of artist “when I grew up.” Well, here I am, all grown up (sort of).

Shortly after high school, I learned that technology was someday going to rule the world. That knowledge is what led me to a degree in Graphic Design. I can proudly say that I have NEVER looked back. Design is my calling!

My design style ranges from feminine & fancy to sleek & forward-thinking. I’m pretty versatile and love that design is so incredibly fluid. I’ve worked with everything from small business start-ups to college institutions & larger marketing agencies. My goal is always to add to my client’s image and send them packing with confidence, excitement and an exceptional sense of their brand. I believe that every client has his or her own story. Listening to that story and facilitating the translation of its emotion and market message into a compelling design is my job.

“She Believed She Could, So She Did”  is my mantra for keeping Rare Byrd Creative soaring.  Hopefully you’re believing you can as well, and loving every minute of it!

Cheers friends,

Amy Thackery

Sacred Journey :Customer Spotlight:

I absolutely love this featured customer, Cielo. I met her several years ago when I was selling my jewelry at a local farmers market in Temecula, CA. She came by regularly to buy my favorite pieces. She had the sweetest, most soothing energy and spirit about her. Then I didn’t see her for what seemed like ages….and I missed her.

Recently, she graced me with her lovely presence and gave me the scoop on all the changes in her life in the past few years. We have collaborated to design a simple design that reflects her journey. This piece will be an offering for clients of a wellness retreat that she has organized.

The piece is called ‘Sacred Journey‘. It says ‘sacred’ on one side and ‘journey’ on the other. It is designed as a small baton, something to pass on to others who are with us along our journey, who need us as much as we need them. Please read on and meet Cielo.  She is beautiful inside and out.

Cielo Perla Hansen The Massage Is The Message

Hi my name is Cielo and I am a traveling massage therapist and have a studio  8 months out of the year in Playa Chacala, Nayarit,  Mexico.

My healing journey began over three years ago.  I was living in a beautiful home in Temecula, CA, married and working as a Criminal Analyst for Law Enforcement for 14 yrs.  Then in 2/08, my husband of 11 years left me and changed my life forever. I took a downgrade in my position and lost my home and loved ones. I went into a deep depression and was put on heavy anti-depressants. Then, I was taken off of work for 3 months by my doctor and sent to counseling. The therapist said that if I did not change the way I was thinking, that my thinking would kill me. I said to myself, “That will not be me”.

One day, I was sitting on the floor sobbing. Then I felt a large hand on the back of my right shoulder.  I took a deep breath and thought that maybe one of my neighbors had heard me crying and walked in.  I turned, but there was no one there.  I was scared for a moment, but I could still feel the warmth on my back where that hand had been.  It was then that I realized I was not alone. I was being watched over by something that I could not explain with my mind, but in my heart, I knew it was my guardian angel.

The next morning I woke up and as soon as I opened my eyes, I remember saying out loud to myself, “I’m going to massage school”.  I got up, called in sick to work, drove down to the school and the next day I started my massage training.  I was 34 years old and this was the first decision I had ever made for myself, by myself. I didn’t ask anyone what they thought. I didn’t even doubt my decision. It was a great feeling.  Little did I know that going to massage school would put me on a journey of healing that I could never have planned on my own.

After learning massage, I was told “we know how to massage” but if you want to be a healer, you need to heal yourself in order to help others heal. I love massage and people so much I decided to move forward with the more difficult classes that involved mental, emotional and physical clearing of trauma and negative thinking patterns. 

Fast forward to a couple years later…

My family in Mexico asked me to come and work at the family hotel/restaurant, Las Brisas, that is located in a small fishing village about an hour north of Puerto Vallarta.  The town is called Playa Chacala. I took a month off my regular office job and hauled myself and 80 lbs of belongings to Playa Chacala.  I fell in love with the place and felt so alive.  I was healing.  I came back to work and I put my two week notice in and never looked back.

I have worked there at Las Brisas for over a year, building my client base while studying everyday and enriching and taking care of myself.  With such support from my family and many friends I have met along this journey, I have have put together the first healing retreat of its kind in Playa Chacala, Mexico.

I encourage all of you to live your dream.  We sometimes avoid risks in life so we can make it safely to death, but what is the fun in that?

Now, over three years after my husband left, I understand why he did.  I am thankful to him for having the courage to leave.  By him taking the first step, it allowed me to to take mine and to do what I love, what I have always loved to do, and that is to help and touch others. I am forever in debt to my family and close friends who have seen me when I was at the bottom of the barrel and didn’t for one second think to leave me there.

Thank you all. You are my Greatest Teachers and I am still a student.

Wealth of Health to You,

Cielo
