Welcome back to The Pink Locket jewelry journal! Today, we're diving into a special ensemble inspired by the iconic Bob Marley's One Love movie. As I embark on this cinematic journey, I've carefully curated my accessories to reflect the essence of Jamaica and pay homage to its rich culture.First things first, let's talk attire. I've chosen to don a vibrant shirt from Us Too Merch, a piece that's been a beloved part of my wardrobe for some time now. Layered over a crisp white linen shirt, it sets the perfect tone for the day's festivities.But let's delve into the heart of the matter—the jewelry. As you may know, I have a penchant for bracelets, and today I'm sporting my trusty permanent ones. However, the star of the show is undoubtedly the Jamaica pendant dangling from my neck. This piece holds a special place in my heart, as I personally crafted it using the intricate technique of sawing. Despite initial frustrations, I persevered, turning a challenging task into a labor of love.Moving on to earrings, I've opted for delicate gold hoops, a versatile choice that effortlessly complements my curly locks. Their simplicity makes them a go-to option for everyday wear, effortlessly blending with any ensemble.For the necklaces, I've decided to layer the Jamaica pendant with my timeless Figaro chain. This combination speaks volumes, intertwining elements of heritage and style in a seamless union. Sometimes, simplicity truly is the ultimate sophistication.As for rings, I've kept things minimal, sticking to my wedding bands. While I adore stacking rings, today calls for a more understated approach, allowing the other pieces to take center stage.And lastly, no ensemble is complete without a touch of tradition. I've adorned my wrists with gold fin bangles, a nod to my Caribbean roots. Paired with my permanent bracelets, they add a touch of nostalgia and authenticity to the look.And there you have it—a snapshot of today's jewelry journal. Each piece tells a story, weaving together memories and moments in a tapestry of self-expression. Join me on this journey as we continue to explore the artistry and allure of adornment.

I usually save storytelling to my IG posts every now and then, but I felt that this particular topic might be necessary. The other day I said to my 11-year-old, "Be your own damn cheerleader." Sorry, every now and again that extra oomph is needed with these youngsters. I wasn't mad when I said it, but I said it with intention and meant every word. There will be times when you will be the ONLY one cheering for yourself, and I say "cheer on!" I went on to tell him these 3 things:
💎 Learn to motivate yourself because you will spend half your life with people who will do the opposite of motivating you...DISTRACT you.
💎 ENCOURAGE yourself, it's nice for others to do it, but don't always expect it.
💎Keep simple reminders of motivation and encouragement around. This can be cards of affirmation, artwork, post-it reminders, or my favorite, jewelry.
This saying "Today I Will Slay" started out on a jewelry dish and I decided, wouldn't this make a great phrase on a necklace? Guess, what? Now it comes in 14kt gold-filled on this unique tube chain🤩.
I'd love to help keep you motivated and encouraged all year long! We can do this! There's nothing like a piece of jewelry as a friendly daily reminder. Go snag yours, wear it and slay each and every day.
