Jewelry Trends 2019: Do you Follow? October 18 2019

Do you know what’s trending in the fashion industry?  I keep a very light eye out on what is trending as I am in the business but honestly, I am a jeans and white t-shirt kind of gal.  That being said, jewelry is the perfect way to spice things up without 1. breaking the bank, and 2. going too far out of your comfort zone.  I have a few things...

Mental Health Lessons: Gimmie a Break October 17 2019

  Last week I took a break.  It was not after 5pm, or for a quick run to the coffee shop.  It was in the middle of the day when I could have been working.  I went to the beach.  Why?  Because we need breaks.  Not just the 15 minute snack break or the lunch with a friend but a break where we disconnect from our daily lives.  I need...

Chokers. Yay or Nay? October 03 2019

  Chokers are back, have you noticed?  I had a couple of choker necklaces in the 90s that I proudly wore, one even in my sister’s wedding!  Wouldn’t you love to see that picture?  I have been seeing girls wearing chokers layered with other necklaces and have to admit, it looks pretty cute.  So I went out on a limb at the last Gem & Jewelry Show and bought some...

How to Put on a Bracelet Solo-Style September 25 2019

We specialize in bracelets.  Bracelets can be annoying. I have had a number of people specifically request NOT to have a lobster clasp because they can be troublesome to put on solo.  I mean, who hasn't had a difficult time putting one on by themselves?!   I have become a master of putting on bracelets by myself over the years so I thought I would do a little demo.  Three styles of...

Why wear it? Triangles and their meaning. September 17 2019

“Wear your inspiration” developed as a tagline for Thought Blossoms quite organically.  I believe in the power of words and symbols and having a physical touchstone with these can bring strength to the wearer.  It is with much intention that I choose our design stamps as I want them to not only fit our aesthetic but be powerful and meaningful.  Triangles have been a favorite of mine and we carry...

All Things Rings September 06 2019

  LAYERING Yes, you can wear that many rings.  Layers aren’t just for necklaces, you can stack as many rings as you want on your pretty little hands.  My every day look includes three rings, two of which are stacked. To dress things up when I go out, I wear our large gold cuff ring and the three stacked rings along with two midis.  I stick with all yellow gold...

Mighty Mission August 23 2019

  Many of you already know the story behind Thought Blossoms and how it started as a line of jewelry meant to be used as intentional tools for inspiration, motivation, encouragement or a good old fashioned kick in the a**.  I love this concept and use my jewelry as such daily, but I also recognize that many of you are wearing Thought Blossoms medical alert jewelry.  This prompted me to begin...

Back to School Safety: Kids & Medical Alert Bracelets August 16 2019

Every time I make a child’s medical alert bracelet, I think to myself, thank goodness!  As a former elementary school teacher, I can see how these accessories can be SO helpful to staff working or interacting with school age children.  In my twelve years of teaching I can recall at least once that student mentioned they had a food allergy that I was unaware of.  Imagine if I had brought...

Mental Health Lessons: Connect August 09 2019

  I have learned a valuable lesson as of late.  Connecting is part of my mental health.  Being a solo-preneur is awesome, rewarding and fun but also very isolating.  I have struggled with this feeling over the past couple of years working from home.  I thought if I scheduled lunches and happy hours with friends that this would alleviate it but that didn’t seem to be the remedy.  I took...

Making a Statement: Finding your voice in business and life July 31 2019

  These lovelies were inspired by some boho accessories I saw while out and about in good 'ol Houston, Texas.  I am not really one for following trends, but I decided to go “big” and try something new.  To my shock and surprise, no one else deemed these earrings the statement pieces as I anticipated.  All good, no hurt feelings here.   This brought me to an idea that has been...

It's our birthday!! July 10 2019

  In honor of our upcoming eighth anniversary I figured I would take some time to introduce myself and tell you the story behind Thought Blossoms! I’m Heather, maker, designer, creator of Thought Blossoms. Thought Blossoms was inspired by a a couple of hand stamped charms that I bought years ago with the intention of using them as touchstones for personal change.  I was teaching at the time and wanted...
