I was super excited to see that little white USPS box sitting at my doorstep last Friday afternoon. I quickly walked inside my house to open it up. I knew what was in that box. I couldn’t open it fast enough. In that little white box I found three gorgeous pieces sent by jewelry designer Shari Dixon of Memphis, Tennessee.
It was love at first sight.
You in love yet?
Let me tell you a bit more of why these pieces are so special to me and near to my heart. First of all they are handmade. I bet you didn’t you know that I’m obsessed with all things handmade, now did you? OK, well maybe some of you knew. But anyways I LOVE handmade items, especially jewelry.
Secondly, I love to garden (have learned to love it anyhow… at first not so much) I LOVE herbs, especially rosemary and I have it all over my backyard. I cook with rosemary often, I diffuse rosemary essential oil and I simply just love the look of it.
I love me some hydrangeas too. I wish they’d last longer though. They don’t last long at all for me which is kinda a bummer, but when they do bloom they are gorgeous and definitely one of my favorites.
Shari Dixon has captured some of my favorite parts of nature and preserved them into beautiful, handmade, high quality jewelry made right here in the USA.

What makes many of her pieces so unique and special is that they are REAL botanicals that she has pressed and has preserved in resin. I think that’s pretty darn awesome if I do say so myself. Now my hydrangeas will last forever with Shari’s stunning pieces.
How sweet is this this rosemary pendant from Shari’s Vintage Seed Pack Collection? The back of the pendant actually reflects the shape of a seed packet. Precious. The rosemary is a sprig of the actual botanical. Love it. Friends: get ready to see me wearing this piece constantly.
I not only love the look of her pieces, but I love the feel of them. They are not lightweight, nor are they heavy. They are perfect. I find myself constantly touching the pendant when I wear these pieces. They just feel good, It is comforting if you will.

More on designer Shari Dixon:
Merging her graphic design training with a strong background in fashion, Shari Dixon has created a line of jewelry that is not only timeless and artistically well rounded, but stylish as well.
A firm believer that women want to feel beautiful, feminine and strong all at once, her motifs incorporate natural elements and mixed media such as pressed flowers, leaves, herbs and snakeskin, immortalizing their fragile lives by sealing them in a poly resin, preserving the form and adding a spectacular glazing effect.
These elements then become a handmade design combined with curious and daring color choices in a multitude of natural stones, fresh water pearls and interesting fibers. The results are whimsical and extremely unique designs of personal adornment.
