Wedding Jewelry Line Launch

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

I’ll be debuting a Wedding Jewelry Line very soon, just in time for the wedding season! The line will be a little bit different from my regular line, being a little more classic in style. However, there will always be my special twist to some pieces that will cater to alternative brides. Here is a small sneak preview of my line, a pair of classic teardrop pearl earrings.

Ready For a New Challenge

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Now that my wedding and honeymoon are over, I can focus some much needed attention on my business. It’s been three years since I first launched myself full time into Markhed Design, and it’s come a LONG way already. I’ve always loved new challenges and I feel like there is some sort of new challenge that is in order now! Something to take the business and/or me to the next level. I suppose that it would be good to have an actual idea of WHAT this next challenge will be, but I honestly have NO idea. So I suppose my next challenge, is to figure out a new challenge! (convoluted¬†enough for you?)

A Letter To My Fellow Women

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

Dear World,

On This International Women’s Day, I wish with all my might, that if you are a woman

You stop judging other women on if they are too fat, or too skinny, or to _____.

That you stand up for yourself and make it unacceptable for ANYONE to call you a prostitute (or even imply that you are one) because you want access to condoms or anything else really.

Stop Allowing people (men and women) to be violent against your gender: whether it be physically, verbally, or mentally.

REMIND the men and women in your life that you are not a baby-making machine, NOR are you a free baby-sitting machine.
