One of the neatest parts of my job is discovering the innovative ways customers use silver charms and pendants in their jewelry lines. For instance, Karen Battles, a graphic designer, and James Shanley, a printer, run B Designs Letterpress and have paired the beauty of letterpress stationery with silver charms in a line of cards they call Sterling Thoughts. These gifts combine meaningful quotations and classic imagery with sterling silver charm necklaces. I fell in love with the deliberate simplicity of each card. They make such thoughtful gifts and each under $30!
Later I got a chance to talk with Karen and learned that when she was looking to expand the offerings of B Designs Letterpress, she thought silver charms were a natural choice because they were in keeping with the iconographic imagery found in the rest of the B Design line. Silver charms are a three-dimensional representation of some of the motifs they currently use in their greeting cards and stationery. Karen really enjoyed finding silver charms that extended the meaning of the quotes.
The next time a special occasion comes up in your life, like graduations and anniversaries, consider a gift from B Design Letterpress.
