Growing up I was very much a “Tom boy.” I played with my Tonka trucks more than I did my Barbie dolls.
Even as an adult I honestly don’t care about designer bags or owning a different pair of shoes for every outfit I own. I’m just a simple girl.
There is one thing that I DO enjoy that some might consider a “girly girl” thing – jewelry! I love jewelry. My husband jokes that he needs to get me “blinders” to keep me from seeing all the sparkly jewelry at the jewelry stores in the mall. He jokes that I can’t make it through the mall without stopping to “oooh” and “awww” at the sparkly jewelry.
As much as I do enjoy sparkly diamonds, I don’t really wear them. For me, diamonds are something fancy that you wear on special occasions. I prefer wearing jewelry that I can wear to work, out to run errands, or on a “date” with my husband.
Let me introduce you to the lovely jewelry from Carolyn Hearn Designs. Carolyn Hearn Designs carries jewelry that fits my lifestyle. Her jewelry is exactly the type of jewelry I enjoy – the kind that goes from grocery shopping, to work, and to a night on the town. Her pieces are not only beautiful, but they are very practical and well made.
Carolyn Hearn was kind enough to send me some pieces to review. It was very difficult (and that is not an exaggeration) to narrow down what piece of jewelry I wanted to check out in person. She has so many gorgeous pieces on her site.
What I loved about her jewelry is that many of her pieces are infused with essential oils such as Bergamot, Patchouli, Blood Orange, Ying Yang, Pink Grapefruit, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, Frankincense Serrata, Clary Sage, Sweet Orange and Thyme, to name a few.
I am a huge fan of essential oils. I have had great experience with them when it comes to helping me to alleviate my mood, energize me and help me unwind and rest at night. I have a nice assortment of oils. I appreciate that Carolyn Hearn has made jewelry already infused with fabulous essential oils.
I was sent to review a “stack” of three individual bracelets known as the “Pure Warrior Stack.”
Here are the details about the bracelet set.
- Howlite & Lava Stones*
- Quartz Arrowhead Connector*
- Coated in a Protective Sealant
- Made in the USA
- *Stones are natural and vary in shape and color
You can purchase the bracelets already infused with essential oils based on your wants/needs. Or you can purchase them without essential oils so you can infuse them with your personal favorites and/or blends.
With this bracelet set you have the choice of Energizing, Tranquility, Invigorating and Meditation (or with no oils). I opted for Invigorating.
My bracelet set came infused with the following essential oils – Sandalwood, Black Pepper and Lemon. These scents are suppose to help promote focus and alertness. These are areas I need help with.
Carolyn Hearn also offers this bracelet with other stones. I opted for the black and white colors because they I wear a lot of black and black and white fits better with my wardrobe.
I have a thick wrist (7.5″ – 8″ depending on the bracelet). These bracelets fit me just fine. They are stretchy enough to fit on my thick wrist without being uncomfortable. They also fit my daughter’s wrist just fine, and she has a small wrist.
I love the arrow head connector/charm. It’s unique. I get a lot of compliments on it.
They bracelets do have a light scent to them. It’s not overpowering and it’s not like perfume where people passing by will smell it. It’s more for “your nose only,” so to speak. I do get a whiff of the scent when I am wearing the bracelets and I adjust my glasses, pull my hair back or do anything that might draw my wrists up towards my nose. When I am wearing them at my desk I can smell them a bit too as I’m leaning over my keyboard to type.
I enjoy the fragrance. I cannot pin point any specific scent. I just know that combined, it smells delightful. I find myself taking a whiff of my wrist from time to time just to enjoy the fragrance. I do find it invigorating. I’m not sure if it really helps me focus, but I do find it refreshing and it perks me up. That works for me!
If essential oil infused jewelry is not your “thing,” that’s OK. Carolyn Hearn has plenty of other beautiful pieces to choose from in a variety of price points. Also available are other bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Here are a few more examples.
