Sunshine Post :: Ten Things Jewelry

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Hello, dear readers. Inherent in the mission statement of The Bright Side Project is the unspoken belief that to “Do What You Love, Love What You Do” is an absolutely essential component in creating a happy and healthy lifestyle. Every now and then, we will ask our contributors to answer a few short questions on the ideas of happiness, creativity and sunshine. We hope these rays of light help inspire you to find the sunshine in your day, today and everyday.

Today we are honored to introduce you to Kerri from Ten Things Jewelry.

Please introduce yourself to our readers and explain a little bit about your business.

I am just a girl fortunate enough be allowed opportunities to follow my heart. My dad was an architect and my mom, an artist; she created everything from gothic interiors, stained glass windows {it was the ’70’s}, DIY ornaments, when times were tough, to Mexican-inpired oil paintings. As a child, I was surrounded by beauty and creativity. I started making gemstone charm bracelets for friends when my children were in elementary school. I had an uncontrollable urge to make things with my hands that reflected my love for a modern bohemian culture. It became an obsession that lead to my first collection of earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Now, TenThings Jewelry can be found in specialty boutiques from coast-to-coast and has been featured in magazines and several popular blogs.

We believe that one of the ways to achieve happiness is to “Do what you love, love what you do.” How does this philosophy apply to your life?

I believe that to live a happy life, you must live in love. Whether it be a smile to a stranger or a one minute meditation before devouring a gelato, each day, I make a point to remind myself to spread love. I truly love what I do and feel an abundance of gratitude that each day I am inspired to create things of beauty; sometimes it’s a new earring design, sometimes it’s a cookies made from scratch.

Our mission here at The Bright Side Project is to spread sunshine on a daily basis because we firmly that life is (still) beautiful. Where do you find beauty and inspiration?

Honestly, I see beauty everywhere. I live minutes from the gorgeous Southern California coastline. The creativity found via social media and the internet everyday has become an obsession for me. I simply can’t start my day without a quick spin through Pinterest and Instagram. The beauty shared by others is utterly amazing.

On a dreary day, what do you do to infuse your life with a little bit of sunshine?

We don’t have many dreary days, so they are quite welcome when they arrive. I make a pot of Masala Chai, put Adele on softly and sing along while I play {I mean ‘work’, same thing, really}.

What are you most grateful for?

I am grateful every day for many little things. I start each day with a simple Thank You as each foot hits the floor. As I type this, I am grateful for the honor of being able to share a bit about myself and the passion behind TenThings.
