SHOP SMALL + SHOP SLOW + SHOP EARLY

SHOP SMALL + SHOP SLOW + SHOP EARLY

As I have said 1000 times over, the Black Friday/ Cyber Monday madness makes me insane.  I don't do well with over stimulation and I have never been great at fighting for a deal.  For this reason, I moved the JP ANNUAL SALE to October and extended it for 3 days this year and have never been happier.  People have time to shop the sale with patience and enjoy the experience.

I really want to support smaller, local businesses this year... and some special ones that I am loving that have an awesome mission.  Most of the businesses below are powered by incredible women.

Do you have any other small-ish businesses you love that I should know about? 

LOCAL LOVE

The Works - Sarah Frick engagement ring rework + gift card to the Works - Sarah’s heart and Soul are on the mat and in the studio for every class taught that the Works and now she and Carter Foxworth are launching the Works CYCLE.  Nothing gets me feeling better than sweating it out on a bike with awesome tunes in the dark room.

Library Littles Lauren’s collection of the most precious, timeless clothing for little girls - you might recognize the model wink wink - morganite ring is the feeling of her line… soft and subtle color palette.

Vincent James - This is a line of sustainably made elevated essentials by my newest studio mate, Heather Sullivan.  Heather is a personal inspiration.  Everything she does is with thought and care and she is my sustainability role model.  Her clothes are beautiful and well made staples that you can wear daily. Heathers is the epitome of cool girl.  Multiple piercings + earring stack is her style.

Shoes on King  - Catherine Boardman’s store here in Charleston has great lines and the customer service is the best. 

RED CLAY - This hot sauce is the yummiest.  I go back and forth between the red and green… and their HOT honey with the Ground up Nut butters is on point. 

POST HOUSE - Staycation City: population 1.  I have already stayed at the Post House Inn and cannot wait to get back for another stay at this local hot spot.  The restaurant is perfection with delicious cocktails and food. Experiences over items almost any day for me... a night away or a dinner with dear friends feeds my soul.

I have two favorite shops on Sullivans.   

Goldbug is Ashley Martin's tiny little shop with amazing jewelry that she makes + gift items as well as great easy dresses, tops and swimwear. 

Bennie + Coco is the new kid on the block.  Katie Poole brings a fun vibe to the island with colorful dresses, rocker t shirts and aviator nation super soft sweats.  So glad to have these two female owned business ladies on the island.  

A few companies with an incredible mission and product that I am also gifting this year.

Ground Up - Favorite healthy indulgence is Ground Up nut butters is a really cool company based in Portland that not only makes the most delicious nut butters - the Chunky Almond, Cashew, Coconut Nut Butter is my classic fave, but they recently sent me the Spicy Tahini and it was CRAZY delicious.  They have lots of fun holiday flavors that are worth checking out.  I also LOVE the Spicy tahini Cashew Butter that was seasonal and sold out on the Ground Up website, but i found it here.  Don't miss.  It's SO YUMMY.

Ground Up is a not-just-for-profit business that provides job training to womxn overcoming adversity in the Portland area. Through the sale of healthy and delicious nut butters, we empower womxn with the confidence and skills they need to get back on their feet.

Brightland Olive Oil - This insanely delicious and clean olive oil is my new fave.  The branding it so lovely, and I honestly wondered if the oil was that delicious or if they just hand appealing branding.  BOTH!  The oil has an insanely smooth and bright flavor that speaks to the nature of it’s production in California.

Babaa - Sustainable Spanish knit brand that I have coveted.  It was kind of purchase that I thought I wanted to be sure about before pulling the trigger.  I looked at the website for weeks and was about the purchase one of the sweaters in a beautiful cool, grey color when it sold out!  I was disappointed but spent another week with the browser open, looking at different styles and finally fell in love with a totally different style.  I purchased my first sweater and I love it so much.  Their mission, values and partnerships make for aspiring melding of old traditions and new sensibilities.

Happy Shopping!

Custom Fingerprint Pricing and Process

Custom Fingerprint Pricing and Process

The Custom FINGERPRINT Necklaces are one of my absolutely favorite pieces in the collection.  Not only is each person's fingerprint 100% unique to the person, but even the way the impressions come out are special and distinctive.  We have had lots of questions lately about the pricing and process on those, so I just wanted to give some additional information.  

FAQ's

WHAT IS THE PROCESS?

Once we receive the 50% non-refundable deposit paid through our website, we will send you a capture kit which includes instructions and tips for getting the best print.  

WHAT SIZE ARE SIZES OF THE PRINTS?

Because each of the prints are unique, they can vary in size a bit.  Our best guesstimation is 15-18 mm.

WHAT AGE IS THESE BEST FOR CAPTURING PRINTS?

You can do them at any age, because any little indentation has a way of being precious... but we suggest 2 yrs and up for the best detail.

WHY A RANGE FOR THE PRICE?

We try to do these as economically as we can, but the truth is that gold has gone up and the fingerprints are weighty (because we like them that way) and the process takes time from preparing the kits, to when we receive the prints back until they are perfect and ready for you.  Some pieces need more work and some need less.  We could mark all projects up to the higher number to cover ourselves, but we find the range allows us to be more on target.

WHAT ARE ADD ON'S?

There are several add on's that can affect the price of the necklace- length of the chain and hand engravings. 

The basic pricing for the fingerprints is for an 18" chain.  We originally offered them at 16", but have found that most people like them at 18", so we edited that so that the base is at 18".  I love them longer.  Mine is 28", but I am tall and like it longer. To each her own on the length.  Every 2 inches longer you go, there is an additional 

Most people opt for the hand engraving on the reverse side of the fingerprints.  They are so sweet and really make the necklace even more special. 

All add on's will be charged in the initial payment. If you happen to make a change to add something after the deposit has been paid, the additional charge will be reflected on the final bill.

HOW LONG DO THEY TAKE TO COMPLETE?

The process can take 6-8 weeks from the day that we receive the completed kit back from you. 

If you are interested in getting this for a special day, but don't have 6-8 weeks, you can start the process and give the kit as the gift.  We have found doing the kits with family to be super special.

IS THERE A LESS EXPENSIVE OPTION?

These pieces are labor Intensive and on the weightier side, so there is not a less expensive version available.  We get that this price point and process is not for everyone.

CAN WE DO A FINGERPRINT POSTHUMOUSLY?

We have two ways of doing this, while neither is as perfect as capturing the print with our kit.  If you have an impression of the print that you can use to capture a fingerprint, we can do it that way.  We can also laser engrave 

BIG LOVE,  Jane

ANNUAL SALE IS COMING UP!

ANNUAL SALE IS COMING UP!

I am getting so excited about our ANNUAL SALE... and it's coming up very soon!  October is just around the corner.  I can't believe it. We shifted our annual sale from the black Friday/Cyber Monday madness last year and were so pleased with how different the experience was for our customers and for us.  We want you to have time to shop slowly and for the process to be enjoyable.

In preparation, I wanted to bring some updates to your attention as you consider if this sale is something you want to take advantage of.  We have modified a few things this year to make things run as smoothly as they can and so that your experience is better as well.

A couple of things...

We are extending the sale a day this year... Whoop Whoop!  it will be THREE days long. 

Do you need to know your ring size?  If so, please email info@janepopejewelry.com now with your mailing address and we would be happy to send you a sizer, so that you will be ready for the start of the sale.

If you mess up and order the wrong size ring, no problem.  We are able to resize rings after the sale ends for $25-$50.   Customer covers shipping both ways.

Have any questions... ASK THEM NOW!  Once the sale starts, we will not be able answer emails in our normal time frame.  If you are hinting to someone to purchase something for you, I would let them know this as well.

Wanting to give someone a HINT that this is the best time to purchase? Make a WISHLIST through your account on the site and send it directly to your loved one.

This offer cannot be combined with any other discounts or coupons.  If you have a gift card and want to use it for a purchase during the sale, please email us and we can refund you after the SALE ends with the amount of your gift card value. We have searched a workaround for this, but have been unable to figure this out in our new platform.

Please note:  All purchases made during this promotion will ship BY November 13th.  We added a couple weeks this year to give us some extra time to take care with your pieces.  If this time frame does not work for you, this sale is not for you.  If you choose next day air, that means that WHEN your item/s are ready to ship, they will ship next day air that day.  This does not mean there will be a rush on your order.

We so appreciate each of you and love offering this once a year promotion.  The full terms of the sale are also below. 

 

Happy Shopping!  xx Jane

Giving back to our community

Giving back to our community

I have watched my dear friend, Ruth Campbell, Be a Mentor for several years and have always wanted to know more and to get involved.  Sadly, I let this or that keep me "too busy" to give of my time.  I am charitable financially, but have been bad about giving my time. Basically, I made excuses for myself. 

When Covid hit and we were locked down at home left to teach our children, it hit me hard that there must be so many children who are less fortunate than my own.  I could imagine that these children did not have the luxury of parents with means and equipment to keep up with virtual school.  It was truly exhausting for everyone involved.*

As I thought about the kiddos who would be left behind due to their parents being unable to stop working to home school, it reminded me of my desire to give back to the community with my time as well as money.  I finally reached out to Be a Mentor, a local organization that empowers children by connecting them with a mentor who can guide them in their community with compassion and integrity. 

I have completed my online training and am really looking forward to being paired with my mentee.  The program sounds incredible, and I am thankful to be taking this step.  It will be a bit different this year, and will be virtual for the safety of all involved, but I look forward to creating a relationship with my mentee.  If you are interested in being a mentor and helping "a child on the brink of success", there is no better time than now to take the leap.  We can all use some additional guidance during this chaotic and uncertain time.

 

xx Jane

 

*Note: In full disclosure, I totally pawned off the home schooling to our incredible sitter (who is married and quarantined with her husband only) while I worked.  Hats off to all teachers out there... and parents who had the patience and persistence for home schooling.

BIG LOVE and Small Change

BIG LOVE and Small Change

I am so excited to finally put my thoughts into action with two exciting projects:  The BIG LOVE rings and my involvement in the Small Change Foundation.  BIG LOVE is something I say when I feel a sense of overwhelming love and gratitude for someone, when I know a friend is hurting or going through a difficult time, or just to let people know that I have big love for them. 

This year has been particularly difficult for most.  For me, some parts have been incredibly beautiful and special - dinners with my little family on our porch every evening for months of the most beautiful weather; having my precious babies teach me how to skateboard at age 42 (still a lot of work to be done there); support by dear friends/family/community; and some clarity on what I want for my role in this world. 

But, if I am being honest, I have had some lows too.  I think we all have.  In these lows, I have thought a lot about how being kind and loving people is so crucial in how we feel about ourselves.  When I am kind or gracious with others and show BIG LOVE, it can bring kindness and love out of someone who might not have otherwise been up for showing it.  I decided that I wanted to create a piece that would remind anyone wearing it that there is BIG LOVE in this world, even in the confusing times we are in right now. 

I mentioned in a previous blog post that I was looking for a way to give back with greater impact, locally, nationally, and globally.  I am excited to announce that I have joined The SMALL CHANGE FOUNDATION as a trustee.  Jane Pope Jewelry plans to make a contribution of 10% of all JP profits to the foundation.    I will be also be selling the BIG LOVE ring and donating 20% of the profits on this piece to The Small Change Foundation. 

Small Change, previously dedicated largely to education and the arts has now decided to expand its goal is to make quarterly donations to charities with a strong mission to help women and children locally, nationally, or globally.  If you have a charity you think might be a fit, please feel free to reach out at small.change.foundation.llc@gmail.com to submit your charity.  

I am thrilled to embark on this journey and will keep you all posted on the charities as we select them.

Locals, we hear you.

Locals, we hear you.

We have been getting lots of requests from Charleston locals for a pick up option for their purchases.  

Our building is still locked down and we are still taking extra precaution, by limiting appointments for the safety of our studio and staff.  That being said, we wanted to offer an option for people to pick up items, both locals and those visiting.  

Starting July 20th we will allow pick ups on Mondays 2-2:30 pm and Wednesday 10:30-11 am. 

Here's how it will work:

Please place your order through our website and pay for shipping.  On the off shot you don't make it by and we end up shipping it instead, this is a more simple way. You can let us know you would like to pick up in the notes section at checkout

When your order is ready, we will email to let you know.  

We need a response from you by 12 pm on Monday or 8 am Wednesday letting us know you are picking up and what the make and color of your car is.

We will be out front of the Cigar Factory building to hand off your purchases with a mask on and ask that you wear one as well.

After pick up, we will process your shipping refund within 24 hours.

Hope this helps some and look forward to seeing you soon!

xx Jane

GRATEFUL

GRATEFUL

As the country and the world are starting to slowly, carefully open back up, we are increasingly grateful.  Grateful that we have not had to shut our doors or do layoffs.  Grateful that we have been able to get the supplies we need to keep working during the shutdowns.  Grateful that most of our suppliers are fighting diligently to get back to work safely are starting to open back up.  We work in a very family oriented industry, so I know that this time has been difficult for many.  Most importantly, we are GRATEFUL for your kindness as we work through this time of uncertainty. Thank you for all of your kind messages and emails during this time.  Thank you for your patience with us as we fill your orders. We appreciate your grace during this uncertain time more than you know.

Almost one year ago, I opened Conscious Casting to help solve some frustrations with my 10+ years in business, and now more than ever do I know that this was the best decision I could make with everything that has happened.  Were it not for doing this, we would not be able to fill your orders.  We have added a new employee,  Sarah, who will be handling all of the customer relations and orders at Conscious Casting.  

THANK YOU ALL WHO HAVE SUPPORTED US WITH PATIENCE DURING THIS TIME.   Your kind words and notes and dm's mean more thank you will ever know.  

We are eternally GRATEFUL.

Update on Studio Visits

Update on Studio Visits

We have gotten lots of requests about studio appointments.  While we are here working in the studio (safely 6+ feet apart), we are not open to studio visits at this point.  Our building is not open to the public.  We also have a shared studio.  For the health and safety of our incredible studio mates, clients and staff, we want to proceed cautiously with face to face appts. 

While we are taking things day by day, we are hoping to open appointments up in June.  We will have to start slowly with fewer appointments and they will be spaced out.  We ask that if you want to check your ring size, you contact us for a ring sizer we can send to do at home.  

We will keep appts to 30 min max.  Please be on time and wait outside until we come out to let you in.  We will require that you all wear a mask and wash your hands when you come inside to the studio.  We will sanitize between appts as well.

We miss seeing you all in person, being able to work with you on custom projects, show you the collection.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Getting your RING SIZE at home

Getting your RING SIZE at home

Hope you all are faring well and are healthy during these crazy times.  Many of you have been inquiring about measuring your ring size at home.  While we typically suggest that customer's stop by their local jewelry store to have it measured, that is not an option at this time. We have you covered.  We can mail you an at home tool to measure your finger.  To get the tool mailed to you, email us at info@janepopejewelry.com and we will send it out to you.

Simply put the end of the sizer in the slot and pull to fit around your finger.  A couple of notes about the process.  You want to be able to take off the measuring tool as you would a ring at the size that you settle on.  The ring sizer is wider than most of our bands.  wider rings feel more snug than thinner.  If you are looking at the cigar band, keep its width in mind when choosing your size.  Also keep in mind that hands fluctuate in size a bit.  If temps are warm, they are likely to be more swollen.  If you have been indulging like many during quarantine in salt or booze or sugar, your finger size might be a little swollen as well.  Just keep this in mind when you order your ring.
