Have a heart: I have never been a big fan of classic, 'perfect' hearts. But I do love what they represent. Who doesn't?! And just as I love the perfect imperfection of hand stamping, I do love shapes that are a bit off centre. So, in honour of Victoria - our lovely Nova Scotia rep who has great taste and a lot of heart - Suetables will have an off-center heart called 'Victoria' (similar to the one above) for $14. It fits one initial and it the perfect add-on to love letters or your charm necklace. Watch for it this summer. Breaking The Girl by kaseyrenee featuring Diane Von Furstenberg bags

Upon your advice, I am finding a way to get paid doing what I love.
I love your approach to life and live my life according to a similar belief system. A friend recently joked that I have made a whole business out of that philosophy. Five years ago, I began a hobby which has become my full-time job.
I have an online hand-stamping jewelry business in Canada and the US. I personalize each piece of sterling silver one letter and one number at a time. It is simple. Catering to those who choose to express their authenticity and personal expression through fashion, each Suetables is hand stamped ensuring each piece is unique and reflects something about the wearer.
Oprah - I hope you will check out www.suetables.com and look at the two necklaces I made for you -- one locket that expresses your love of your dogs (yes, your six pups are in there) and one that reflects something about how you live your life and help others live theirs.
You once reminded me in your magazine to “live my truth”. Now, I am giving you a circle of life reminding you to LIVE YOUR TRUTH. You do it so well every day. You help others do it daily too.
My dream is for my jewelry to be featured in your magazine. And so, upon the “Oprah credence” that I know and love, I am writing my own script.
I hope you will feature these meaningful sterling-silver pieces in your magazine.
With great admiration and respect always,

Keep it simple: You will see in my jewelry line, that my eye is always drawn to the simplicity of shapes. (I've considered calling myself a jewelry stylist as a result...but I digress...). In Spain last summer, we hiked up, at daybreak, to a palace and fortress complex in Granada. It’s called the Alhambra. The Islamic architecture is complex and stunning but sometimes you find beauty in simplicity. And you find your favourite view from an unexpected place.
