My top 9 of 2017. I had planned to do a lot in 2017 and wound up mostly just being pregnant and prepping for baby. So for 2018, I'll get it together. I'll work harder. I'll be kind, but fierce. I'll wear lipstick, just because. I'll listen to my favorite music and sing along. I'll clear space around me and in my head. I'll do the best I can, and learn to tune out and shut down outside noise as needed. Cheers to 2018, and to you, my friends. May love and light, health and happiness be yours now and always.

Seashore Design Studio (@ilanaseashore) is taking part in the #jewelrybrandmakeover  by Flourish and Thrive Academy! I've got so much going on (can you kinda tell from the picture?) but I'm taking the time to follow this course as best I can so I can engage in some business self discovery and try to refine my ideas of where I am and where I'm going. Too often, small business owners are so busy working IN their business that they don't take time to work ON their business. We're just starting out, but I've already been able to start working on what my ideal business looks like, so I can implement strategies to get there.

Craving some spring? This custom flower is ready - ready for spring, and ready to keep little hands busy as it heads home to an awesome babywearing mama. And that amethyst, it just shines!

I've been a jeweler for a long time, and a crafter even before that. What brought me here? When my daughter (now an awesome toddler) was small I was struggling with maintaining my own style and personhood while implementing accessories that helped keep her busy. A silicon necklace is cute, but not my style...and she wouldn't chew on it anyway. This brought me to the place where Seashore Design Studio was born, utilizing my existing skills and tools (plus some new ones) to make sturdy chains that wouldn't snap and chunky centerpieces little fingers couldn't resist. Did I wear a wood ring teether sometimes? Yes, and for my son, I still do. But I layer with a stylish silver necklace that looks and feels like fashion jewelry, and is made to last.

What speaks to you?

Is it earrings that match everything? Does music sing to your soul? Simple shapes perhaps, or a memento of your babywearing journey? Add a chain or cord in your favorite length and there you have it - custom jewelry that expresses you, your style, and what matters to you. [Shop link in bio]

Baby nails are sharp! I'm not sure if they're worse long, or freshly cut.

Give those cute claws something to do besides scratch. A silver fiddle necklace looks great and gives little hands something to play with. They're not unbreakable (this isn't Kimmy Schmidt we're talking about 😎), but you can bet on strength and durability far above the norm.

It's been awhile, so I'm going to introduce myself, and show you some jewelry in action!

I'm Ilana, New York based mom of 2, a 3.5yo girl and a 3 month old boy. Fun fact: my husband and I met freshman year of college and have been together since. I've been a crafter as long as I can remember, a "serious" jewelery designer for a bit over 10 years, and an aspiring silversmith for about 2.5 years. I discovered "mama metal" (silver nursing necklaces) when my daughter was already 1, so I'm really enjoying wearing it with my little guy. It makes me so happy everytime he finds my necklace - plus it keeps those razor sharp nails off my skin! Anyway, here's me and the little man in Target (where else?), and you can see he fell asleep with a good hold on my moon phase centerpiece. I don't let him pull, but the necklace is perfect for fiddling with and hanging onto.

I love jewelry that tells a story. I've been so privileged to be able to write so many stories in silver. From documenting feeding journeys to depicting families, recreating historical pieces to celebrating successes, I'm truly honored to be able to make these memories into metal. What's your story?

One of my favorite parts of making mama metal style necklace is the privilege of documenting and being part of so many special journeys. I know my story; thank you for sharing yours.

It's snowy here in New York today, but this mama is on the sunny west coast (jealous!). Her custom centerpiece is one of my favorites; if I make memories in metal, this snuggly mama and baby bear piece is one to remember. I love making functional jewelry that will serve as a memento as the little ones grow, because it really does go so fast.

Regarding follows: I smile at your likes, I try to respond to all your comments, and I see and appreciate your follows. I generally do not request to follow private profiles out of respect for your privacy. Sometimes I do by accident (I just requested a private profile then panicked and canceled it!) So many of you are parents and caretakers just like me, so if I don't follow back, please know how much I appreciate you, I just want to give you your space. If you'd like me to follow back, just let me know.

Pictured is a recent custom in action, shared by the lovely Silvia.

I'm loving these warm colors on a grey and rainy day - reminds me of a summer sunset. And that chest pass is the perfect backdrop for some simple hexagons!

Thank you, @citygirlgonerogue for sharing your beautiful photo.

Way back when Seashore Design Studio was new, I designed an uneven heart motif that I called a babywearing, or breastfeeding heart. It was cute and held a ton of meaning but my mechanical skill was still lacking, and so it was abandoned. Recently, with the help of a sweet mama, it was reimagined. This is the evolution of my first real design, and I'm pretty pleased with it.

Parents, can we be serious for a second here? This is hard. Taking care of the kids, the family, the home, the shopping, the cooking - whatever other "work" we do - plus finding a moment to ourselves. I'm still struggling to adjust to life with two littles. It's hard, but it's worth it. Moms, dads, caretakers - I salute you.
@lindavanbommel is handling #momlife  in a beautiful way - thank you for letting me share your picture, lovely!
