Featured Articles

My research takes me down many different paths, many of which do not lend themselves to posts here on Jewelry History. Never one to let a morsel of good information lie fallow, I've begun to turn these rabbit trails into featured articles on related blogs.

Here you will find not only a running list of fresh and fun guest posts written by yours truly, you will also find a network of brilliant bloggers. After you're finished reading my guest post (and sharing it with all your friends, I hope), please take a few minutes to peruse their sites.

Some of them offer beautiful inspiration for weddings, others offer amazing tutorials on making jewelry, and still others offer fashion and jewelry advice. Don't forget to share those things that move you.

Thank you for taking a few minutes to spread the love to those who've opened their doors so kindly to me.
