Symbols are important because they help us to identify ideas and other concepts that draw communities of similar values together. The itch to become part of something greater than ourselves is bigger than ever. Some symbols change and some stay the same. Symbols themselves make for a great niche when you want to add a little bit of that bling to your store.


Moms are always the biggest cheerleaders at their kids games. They love to support their kids in style. They are loud and proud. Moms enjoy all the fan gear they can get hands on to support their child in anyway they can. I bet they would love to rock a little bit of bling while they continue to cheer on from the bleachers.

Motherhood comes from all shapes and sizes. I can’t speak from experience but I believe that military moms go through extra challenges. It’s not easy and often they are required to make many sacrifices to serve our country. In honor of all military moms, those who serve and those who make sacrifices at home, you should extend your online collection to jewelry as well.

Food is something that everyone can relate to. Make your necklace designs unconventional but popular. People eat different types of food in different countries, so simply marketing beef designs to a country who is primarily pescatarian simply won’t do a justice. Choose your battles carefully.
