Dear Mushka,

Necklaces for Layering

Necklaces for Layering

We have over 40 short necklaces at different lengths that are perfect for creating that layered look! I’m sharing some pieces today that make a great combo for wearing together for modern and stylish adornment.

The Ambassador Necklace

The Ambassador Necklace is our only choker necklace that fits snug around your neck. The Kinship Necklace is another option but it hits slightly lower and isn’t technically a choker as it’s looser than the ambassador.

The Salt Necklace

The Salt Necklace is a 16” piece that has a genuine druzy pendant in white. A 16” necklace hits me above my collarbone but this can differ depending on what you’re wearing.

Some of my other favorites in this length include: The Enduring Necklace and The Aid Necklace.

The Encounter Necklace

The Encounter Necklace is one I wear at least once a week, it makes a great prayer piece and hangs at 18”. Our 18” necklaces are the most common length for our Dear Mushka pieces.

My favorites for layering include the Honey Necklace and the Knot Necklace.

The Honey Necklace is one of my favorite Dear Mushka pieces with its golden pendant that shines.

The Twinkle Necklace

The Twinkle Necklace is my favorite layering necklace because the chain is different - it doesn’t tangle with other pieces! This one makes a great gift, especially if somebody has some of our other jewelry already because it just goes with everything.

Mother's Day Gift Guide (for every woman!)

Mother's Day Gift Guide (for every woman!)

Mother's Day is our second biggest holiday and as a woman, I truly understand why. On this day, there is little more I want than ways to remember my sweet children + Gospel truths to stand on when I'm feeling overwhelmed. I also know the loss of a mother, the angst of feeling like an imperfect mother, the sorrow as friends walk through miscarriage or infertility and long to be a mother, etc. 

I hope this post helps you navigate the pieces we offer and allows you to find the perfect thing for your heart or a loved one's heart. xx

To Celebrate Children:

· A piece from the No. 139 Birthstone collection here -- add one or multiple birthstones. Grandmothers love this! 

· The Priority Ring here-- wear one for each of your children, add more as your family grows!

· The Called Necklace here -- add one initial or multiple and keep your children close to your heart (or a grandmother's heart). Also a precious way to honor the loss of a child. 

· The Brimming Necklace here-- a great option for someone experiencing motherhood after years of waiting. Rejoice with those who rejoice!

· The Quiver Necklace here -- add as many arrows as you need and think on Proverbs 127:4

Adoption:

The Together Necklace here -- we have a verse card for birthmothers, adoptive mothers, and (new!) adopted daughters as they get older. Can you picture all three matching? Precious! 

To Help During Hard Seasons:

· The Aid Necklace here -- created especially for when a loved one or unborn child dies. Miscarriage, loss of child, loss of mother, no relationship with a mother. Let this verse meet you in all of the hard! 

· The Expectant Necklace here -- created especially for someone walking through infertility. Open your hands to what God has in store for you. 

· The Keeper Necklace here-- know that you are seen and your tears are kept; add tear drops for each miscarriage or loss.

· The Portion Necklace here-- because God, not children or health or obedience, is our hope. Amen!

· The Carried Cuff here -- because you're being held as you mother; this is a shop bestseller, for sure! 

· The Harvest Necklace here -- available in lots of colors with a wonderful reminder that the work you're doing will one day product fruit; keep planting seeds in your child's life!

· The Enduring Necklace here-- especially wonderful for mothers parenting a child with special needs 

For Spiritual Growth as you Mother:

· A Promise Pack here -- perfect for putting up all around the house to keep your eyes on truth even when you feel too busy to spend a long time in the Bible

· The Servant Necklace here-- a reminder to serve your children, through the power of Jesus

· A 2 Cor 12:9 Art Print here -- because God is greatest when are weak and in need of Him for energy, wisdom, and joy. 

To Gift to Another as a "Thank You" for being the mother they are

· Here's a blog post I wrote that highlights a lot of pieces you can use to say "thank you". I think you'll find a lot of good options here! 

 

Katie's Favorite Dear Mushka Necklaces

Katie's Favorite Dear Mushka Necklaces

Today Katie shares some of her favorite Dear Mushka Necklaces and their meanings. Watch the video to see her explanations or read below to find your favorite piece. 

The Net Necklace

The Net Necklace comes in both gold and silver and is paired with a verse from 1 Peter. It is meant to resemble a net and casting your anxieties overboard, trusting that Jesus will handle them.

Cast all your anxiety on Him because he cares for you.

This piece would be perfect for an anxious season of life.

The Radiance Necklace

I wear The Radiance Necklace anytime I need something a little fancy. It comes in four different colors and the peach is my favorite. It’s supposed to resemble an unashamed, radiant face and the verse from Psalm 34.

The Ladder Necklace

The Ladder Necklace comes paired with the verse from Romans 5 that has been such a lifeline for me. I’ve also given this piece to friends when they are walking through tough seasons.

It’s obviously meant to look like a ladder and reflects the imagery of climbing the ladder of sanctification through suffering.

The Perspective Necklace

The Perspective Necklace is reflective of Romans 8. This is a very well-known verse.

And we know that all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose.

The idea is that up close the necklace looks like ugly holes but from a distant we’re able to see our lives as a redemptive whole.

It comes in yellow gold, rose gold and silver. What I love about this piece is that just the title (and the necklace itself) offers us perspective that in hard season of suffering we can remember that God is working something out.

Do you have a favorite Dear Mushka piece that you love wearing or have given as a gift? I love hearing from you and hearing the personal meanings you give to each piece! Send me a DM to share your favorites with the Dear Mushka team❤️

Gifts for Caregivers and Teachers

Gifts for Caregivers and Teachers

I know how it can be a struggle to find meaningful, personalized gifts for all of the amazing people in our lives so today I’m sharing some gift ideas for caregivers and teachers!

The Lantern Necklace

The Lantern Necklace comes with a verse that says “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.” I love this one for teachers because they are definitely a light to our children and a lot of teachers and caregivers like to sing “This Little Light of Mine”.

I think it is so perfect for them! It comes with little copper beads inside and it’s really beautiful.

The Harvest Necklace

The Harvest Necklace comes in nine different colors so you’re able to pick their favorite color or even the school color. It is paired with Galatians 6:9 and the necklace provides the imagery of pieces of fruit being strung together to create something beautiful.

This is even a great gifts for mothers because raising children is really hard work and sometimes it can feel so tiring and we so often just long to see the fruit of our hard work. It serves as a reminder that if we keep at it, God promises that some kind of fruit will come.

I love adding this note:

Thank you for working steadfastly to grow fruit in these children, even on the hard days. I am so grateful!

The Gentleness Necklace

The Gentleness Necklace is great for a younger teacher or caregiver. The tassel is such a gentle, sweet pendant for a reminder of the verse it is paired with. It’s a calling to be gentle and humble. 

Some Other Pieces: 

A Promise Pack -- truth for them to put on their desks and in their cars

The Precious Tee -- because they absolutely believe these lyrics

The Goodness Necklace -- because raising children is a good work

Miscellaneous Dear Mushka Pieces You Didn’t Know About

Miscellaneous Dear Mushka Pieces You Didn’t Know About

Today I’m sharing a few Dear Mushka products that you may not know we have. Watch the video to see the pieces or read through them below!

The first are some add-on’s that you can add to basically any necklace you already have. These are perfect for necklaces with little hanging pendants to make them extra customizable.

The No. 139 Collection

We currently offering birthstone pendants as part of our No. 139 collection as bracelets, earrings and a necklace. They are little glass stones for each of the months of the year.

You have the option to add a birthstone pendant to almost any piece for a pop of color. They look especially good on long necklaces like the Plume Necklace.

Other Additions

Other great options include initial pendants, hearts, arrows, rings, pearls and Keeper tear drops to any purchased piece - you can find them here.

Our Trio Necklace comes with three rings but I love the idea of adding as many rings as you need to represent children, friends, etc.

I love adding a pearly on basically anything for a little extra feminine touch.

For these extra add ons you simple add your necklace and add on to your cart with a note to seller on the view cart page that tells use what to add to which piece for you💕

Replacement Chains

You’ll probably need us to fix a broken chain, if this happens simply pop us an email or purchase a replacement chain.

We also have chain extenders available if you’d like to add an extra 2-3” to your necklaces. It’s super simple to add! Just attach to the back and put your necklace back on. You’ll soon be able to add a clasp to a long necklace, too. This is also helpful for layering necklaces.

I’ll be showing you all some more of the custom designs you all create as they go out on IG stories because you are all so creative and create the most beautiful pieces that are so meaningful. I know these jewelry pieces are extensions of your hearts❤️
