The Military Wives Choir, comprised of wives and girlfriends of Royal Marines, lead by Choirmaster, Gareth Malone are at the top of the BBC charts with their Christmas hit, "Wherever You Are".  Composed by Paul Mealor, the lyrics come from the words and letters written between the wives and their husbands and the title of the song came from words inscribed on a BB Becker bracelet one of the women wore.  The choir performed the song at the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall in front of Her Majesty the Queen and other members of the Royal Family.

There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart. - Gandhi

Denver-based [jewelry designer] revives ancient jewelry style with a modern twist

Southern Jewelry News

(DENVER) - An ancient style of jewelry is finding new meaning in the 21st century as more people look for inspiration, motivation and emotional connection in their lives.

“More and more, we’re seeing that people want a visible reminder of the universal themes that connect all human beings,” said Denver-based [jewelry designer] BB Becker.

Becker designs and manufactures jewelry engraved with emotion-evoking quotations. He said he took his inspiration from Renaissance-era “poesy rings” to create pieces of mostly sterling silver inspirational jewelry. He crafted his first piece in September of 2000, a bracelet inscribed with the Serenity Prayer.

Heart of the Home

Heart of the Home is a terrific store in New Hope, Pennsylvania, which was originally started by the mother and daughter team of Phyllis and Catalina Castells.

Quote

Heart of the Home was begun by Phyllis Castells and her daughter Catalina in 1994 as an expression of their combined love for...crafts and functional, well designed pieces for the home and garden. -Quote from the Heart of the Home store website.

Although Catalina has since moved on to other endeavors, Phyllis is dedicated to keeping the store true to its original mission.


As a jewelry designer, I am blessed to work with many different and great stores throughout the world. I would like to take a few moments to profile each of these fantastic partners.

Juxtapose GalleryJuxtapose Art Gallery in Westfield, New Jersey is run by Gerri Gildea, who has been a long time retail partner and supporter of BB Becker Jewelry. Westfield has a large commuter population, with many of its population working in New York City. During a recent conversation, Gerri informed me that her store is located near the town train station, which many locals pass through on their way to and from work.
