We talk a lot about jewelry here at The Bright Side Project. This is because we believe, wholeheartedly, in the power of art you can wear. When good design meets impeccable craftmanship, there is something magical that takes place. Think about it this way: you could wake up on the wrong side of the bed and dread your day but on your way out the door, you grab a necklace and throw it on. All of a sudden, you feel strong, you feel prepared, you feel like yourself. This is what good jewelry does, friends. This is what art does.

Elaine Butcher of Elaine B. Jewelry creates stunning architectural pieces that marry substance and style in a way that many designers aren’t able to do. This is the kind of jewelry that makes me want to go out and write a novel or build a sandcastle or paint a portrait. In other words, these pieces make me want to leave my mark on this world. This 3D Rectangle Necklace, in particular, screams at me quietly, with beauty and seriousness. But don’t take my word for it. Browse Elaine B. Jewelry and find the piece that speaks to you. It’s there, trust me.

Elaine B. Jewelry is giving away one Honeycomb Necklace to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Tuesday, January 21st. Giveaway now closed…good luck!

    Nikki says:

    20 years of being with a man that I still want to spend as much time with as possible! This includes 18 years of marriage, 17 years of having a business together, 16 years of raising children, 9 years of college between the two of us, 15 trips to the hospital/medical clinic, 2 babies born at home, and 1 totaled car on an Idaho backroad in the snow.  Numbers like these make me smile because they give a vague outline of our time together, and nothing seems to take as much work or give as much reward as the life I have made with him

    Finding the courage to pack up everything, move literally across the country to a place where I knew no one, and start graduate school in a field that’s had unsteady job placement for years. I’m naturally a very shy person, so making friends was–is–incredibly hard. But I’m doing it, slowly, and creating a life for myself.

    Uprooted my life out of small town Virginia and moved halfway across the world to a rural village in Indonesia and taught children and teachers alike how to seize every day (and speak English) for 27 months… and then get into graduate school.

    Getting my job as an art teacher! It took a year for me to get into the credential program, then the program took 1.5 years to complete, and then I worked for 1.5 years as a substitute teacher for five different school districts (which meant a job everyday, but usually at a different place every time). I got hired right before the school year started, so I am SO SO lucky!

    moving across a world ocean for a phd program at the #1 university in the world in a country where the main language is not my first, second, or even third. I am still shocked sometimes that I actually managed to pull it off.

    Working hard toward my passion as an art major. I recently created some digital drawings which got a lot of praise on the internet so I am still at my proudest moment. I hope that I can continue making works that make me proud, which is in itself quite rare.

    I love all things honeycomb. I am currently trying to make a honey comb style shelf for my wall. I saw one on Etsy and they are so lovely. Just like this necklace. love love love

    some days I don’t feel much accomplishment other than getting through the day being mostly kind to patients and co workers (I work in a busy pediatric office)

    That I have made it 4 years and counting since my husband walked out and left me with three kids and no job. In the meantime, there has been a high school graduation, a college graduation and a graduation from a masters program for two of my kids. Youngest is still in high school. And just recently got a part-time job helping out a friend. Things are looking up!!

    My biggest accomplishment is starting my own business and doing what I love! Although it’s difficult and money is very tight sometimes, I would not trade it for the world! I could not have done it without the love and support from my husband, our families, and my lovely customers!

    i don’t think i’ve done anything really great in my life so far… i would say taking care of my mum after her surgery last year, i had just completed sophomore year in college when my mum went for her surgery, so after being discharged i was in charge of the cooking and cleaning. i really admire my mum for being able to work and take care of us kids (although she didn’t cook dinner because thankfully we always had our grandma’s homemade meals!) because it’s really tiring!

    My family. After years if dating around, I finally found a man who makes me laugh and is good down to his bones. At first I could not imagine it getting serious, it was just for fun, but he won me over. Eight years later, we are expecting our third boy and I just look back on that decision to marry this surfer dude from California and thank my lucky stars. The family and life we have built together is my greatest accomplishment.

    Perseverance.
    I graduated with my B.S. in 2007, right as the economy started to fall apart. My entire life I was told that when I got done with school, my hard work and education would get me a great job, but it took me months to find one.

    Once I got it, I loved going to work and I pushed myself to learn as much as possible… until I was laid off. It took my 9 months and 1254 job applications to get my next break. In my new job I traveled 45 weeks out of the year, I was a newlywed who never got to be at home, I barely saw my friends… but at least I had a job… for a year and a half. I was laid off a second time and back on the job hunt.
    This time it took me 4 months, and i’ve been happily employed for about 1 year. It would have been easy to give up. I watched a lot of my friends give up and stop trying, or go back to school and get additional degrees, which they still can’t find work for. My husband and I had trouble adjusting to the little bit of time we had together while I was traveling, as well as the hardships of survival when I was unemployed, but we made it. I also ended up getting my masters degree over the years (a little at a time) and I have worked hard to see my friends and find a balance between my work life and social life. It’s been an up and down battle, but i’m proud of my perseverance for getting me through!

    Becoming more compassionate.
    Certainly, there are others things I’m proud of – my children, my Ph.D, things I’ve published, but I wouldn’t even begin to imagine that they are a great accomplishment.  So many accomplish so much and we live in such a competitive culture.  When I lost my husband, however, and everything fell apart, that’s when something beautiful happened.  I stopped worrying about accomplishments – my worth and my value shifted.  And suddenly, I saw there was pain and suffering all around me.  I could see something besides myself.  Now, I wish I could say that I am responsible for this “accomplishment,” but I’m not.  It was a gift.
