Did you make New Year’s Resolutions to be a more fabulous version of yourself this year? Good, so did we.

One can get a little lost mid-winter, what with the cold, and lack of sun and beaches. We find, that a few new pieces of jewelry are always helpful for a mid-winter pick-me-up. So here are some suggestions for you to spruce up your wardrobe with a piece or two of new jewelry.

Beachy Looks

While heading to a tropical beach, or even the PNW coast, is mostly out of the question during this time of the year, there are still ways to stoke your inner sun goddess during the winter. James Michelle Jewelry offers plenty of beach-inspired jewelry. Whether a handstamped bar necklace with the word “Beach” stamped in, or a cool blue gemstone necklace is up your alley, there are plenty of options to choose from. Check out the Midi Word Ring, featuring your choice of one small word stamped on it. We recommend “Aloha.”

Customize our Hand Stamped Initial Necklace for a summer vibe. Featuring a vertical handstamped bar, with one initial, a delicate freshwater pearl and a gemstone of your choice, you can’t go wrong.

Our favorite beachy accessory: one of our many pineapple stamped necklaces. We have large pineapple charms and small ones. We also have dog tags handstamped with a custom pineapple stamp. Bar necklaces, disc necklaces and more can also be updated with a pineapple stamp. Why Pineapple? Because it calls up tropical days, refreshing drinks and surf. What else do you need?

Snow Girls

If you’re feeling like hitting the slopes and embracing this snowy area that we live, may we suggest a few slow accessories?

Try customizing a handstamped bar necklace with the words “Snow Bunny” or “Snow Girl.” We even have cute snowflake stamps to further customize your necklace.

Our favorite winter accessory is our Mountain Bar Necklace. Featuring three mountains cut out of a bar necklace, it harkens to our favorite Three Sisters.

Even though the holiday season has come and gone once more, doesn’t mean you can sport a handstamped disc necklace with a pine tree on it. Pine trees don’t have to be Christmas-related right? Check out our Mini Disc Necklace, and request the tree stamp.


James Michelle Jewelry is always a great place to look for the classics as well. Looking for simple, understated earrings, rings and necklaces, there are plenty to choose from. We recommend a hammered silver ring, a choker, and a long dainty chained necklace. Whatever you desire to expand your jewelry wardrobe, you can find it with James Michelle.
