My Last Blog Post For The Year 2009

Hello To ALL My Friends & Family,This is the last blog post for the year 2009.
It has been an amazing year, and I have to thank you guys for all your support handmade, you comments and love that you gave me.I want to take this opportunity to thank you ALL for sharing your life, names, family ,ideas, through joyous occasions such as a birthdays, holidays, weddings and sharing a family's loss. In the last year, I created over 2000 necklaces and there is so many wonderful unique stories that my work allows me to share with my family and with you. But I would like to share with you three family story that made me cry and could not sleep for many night."You Completed Me Necklace"-"This is a gift for my mom. My father passed away in July. I saw this necklace and thought it would be appropriate. Even though they are apart, he will always be with her. Also, my daughter was born in May. So it is like she is a gift from heaven to help heal the hole in her. Thus the circle of life!"
The 2nd necklace - I got an order from a husband that wanted to buy a gift for his pregant wife.This is the e.mail that i got from the lady few weeks after the got the necklace"
"Sima~I am writing regarding the beautiful necklace that was made for me. My husband Geoff ordered this necklace for my birthday on 9/17. The necklace had two rectangle tags, one with my husband Geoff's name on it and the other with my unborn son's name (Parker) and a pearl. The necklace arrived on saturday the 13th of September. I was so excited! I was 35 weeks along and so excited to have my necklace!! The whole reason for the necklace was to have my boys close with me when I went back to work following my son's birth (he wasn't due until 10/19). On 9/14 we went into the emergency room and discovered that our unborn son Parker's heart had stopped. He was delivered, stillborn, on 9/15 at 7:15pm. His umbilical cord had hemmorhaged. A complete, tragic, fluke. I wore this necklace during the entire labor and delivery and have not taken it off since. This necklace now holds special meaning for my husband and I. I will cherish it forever. Thank you so much for the beautiful keepsake. ~RC~ Loving mother to her angel Parker GH." :I love you RC and i will always think of you,but the good news is that RC is pregant again{hugs to you my dear}
The 3rd order that I got this year was from a lady that wanted to create a keepsake necklaces for her husband and two kids. The jewelry turned out beautiful like never before.A week after, I got a phone call that the lady passed away from cancer. Thank You again & have a happy and healthy NEW YEAR~~~Sima

From Boulder Colorado ... all the way to Israel

The New Jewelry Obsession – Personalized Silver Jewelry by Noa Levy on December 30, 2009 The new jewelry obsession taking over the streets of Tel-Aviv is personalized jewelry. After we all copied Carry Bradshwa’s oh-so-80’s gold necklace with our name hanging on our neck, it is time to take another fashionable step and introduce to you Sima Gilady’s personalized jewelry. Sima designs her personalized silver jewelry with a lot of love. “This isn’t just a job for me” she says, “it’s a great passion and blessing, to be able to be a part of a family’s story – even if just in that short moment of time.” Sima creates one-of-a-kind personalized jewelry according to her customers’ request, with a unique word in Hebrew or English to represent the person wearing the jewelry – it could be a name, a date, or simply a little word which holds an entire world inside it, such as “love”. Sima’s jewelry bracelets and necklaces are made of sterling silver, gold filled, 14k gold, copper, each jewelry design is unique and meaningful. Her inspiration comes from her family, the nature around her and songs she likes, as the “You Complete Me” necklace inspired by a beautiful Hebrew love song.

Do It All Mamas (& Papas)

By:December 17, 10:17 PMEarly Childhood Parenting ExaminerAngele Sionna
Sima and her family In today's Do It All Mamas (& Papas) the spotlight is on Sima Gilady, mommy to Leah (17), Maya (14), Yonatan (5) and Eden (3) and the designer of SimaG Jewelry. I have two of Sima's necklaces and they are beautiful. Among my very favorites to wear.
Read my review HERE. Examiner: Tell me something unique/interesting about yourself. Sima: I born and raised in Israel .I got married and moved to Boulder ,Colorado, then I started my career as esthetician, had 2 girls and had to close my shop due to hard time with my third pregnancy. I wanted to be home with my kids and be there when they come home from school.Art & Jewelry has been my passion in my life, since I was a child, I considered myself an artist. so staying home has been a blessing in many ways.I love my life, my kids and my husband who always supports my work and my dreams. I LOVE my job, and I believe it shows. I create my beautiful jewelry at my home while my 4 kids at school. After 3pm, I am my kids mother and my husband wife.
Examiner: What is your business all about? Sima: SPREADING YOUR LOVE ♥ ONE LETTER AT A TIME ♥ Personalized Jewelry In Hebrew & English. Some people wear their hearts on their sleeves. I prefer to wear mine around my neck.(http://www.simag.etsy.com/ and soon my very own website :) http://www.simagilady.com/)
Examiner: What is your favorite product that you make or sell and why do you like or recommend it? Sima: My very favorite product is my spiral shape necklace.Two years ago I create the first spiral design on Etsy. I stamped my family around the disc as a spiral, snail shape.Since I was a kids i always drew snails, took photos of shells and any thing that looks like a spiral is mine. I have to buy that. The spiral shape to me is: Journey... Balance Progress Direction Initiation Centering Expanding Awareness Connection Journeying Development. Family."The Human Mind Always Makes Progress,But It Is A Progress In Spirals."~Madame De Stael
Examiner: Why did you start your business? Sima: I wanted to find a great piece of jewelry to represent my family and found nothing that was "one of a kind." Then i bought my first stamp letters few years ago and created my family and friend a great keepsake. I love that every disc is unique in that you can personalize each tag, "every disc has a story".
Examiner: What secret do you have to share with other parents about "having it all" with your family and business? Sima: Creating jewelry and running my jewelry shop, I try to keep my life in balance by exercising and walking everyday. I try to volunteer at my kids school, to have a date with my husband and my big girls 17 and 14. It is very important to me to spend some time with them, while the little boys with their daddy.My family and I love traveling and exploring the world, it is very important to us to take time from work and busy life.
Examiner: What is the number one piece of advice you have for other parents? Sima: Enjoy your family, your spouse.your kids they grow too fast. Find the time to read to your kids,To hug them and say :"I love you" Keep your family priorities. To bake together.
Examiner: What is your (and your kids) favorite family activity? Sima: We live in in beautiful Colorado. We love the mountain, we hike in the summer. The girls water ski and we ski in the winter.
Examiner: Anything else you want to add? Sima: I LOVE MY WORK! I truly see each custom personalized design as my opportunity to share in the life of that family through joyous occasions such as a birthday or holiday or wedding and through their sadness in my pieces of remembrance in sharing a family's loss. I create every piece with love, one letter at a time - it's the ultimate personal experience for me. This isn't just a job for me, it's a great passion and blessing, to be able to be a part of a family's story - even if just in that short moment of time. I never forget a family's special request for a custom order and every time I duplicate that certain piece, I'm taken back to the wonderful unique stories that my work allows me to share with my community.

My Fave Chanukkah Gift --- By Bryce - www.theluxuryspot.com

Bryce Dec 12th, 2009
If you’re still looking for a Chanukkah gift, don’t worry, I got your back. Cute, delicate necklaces are all the rage for winter and spring 2010, which means all you have to do is find one that you can personalize.
I’ve been wearing my Sima Gilady sterling silver necklaces (I have 2) literally every day. I have one on an elegant and simple silver chain with a thin hammered silver disc pendant that says my son’s name, Benjamin, in Hebrew on one side and English on the other. But, if you don’t care for any Hebrew text, you can choose whatever text you want. Write your anniversary date, “Shmookie” for your dog, or some inside joke between you and your best friend. For $28, I seriously can’t think of a better gift. This is one of my Sima Gilady necklaces, and translates to “Binyamin” the Hebrew version of Benjamin, which means “son of my strengths.”
T H A N K YOU my dear . Bryce is a Manhattanite mom that can be found jet-setting off to every corner of the globe. She loves exotic places, trying adventurous cuisines, artisan fashions, and apothecary-type beauty products.

The Inner Me By My Daughter Leah

My daughter Leah is taking a photography class at school in level 4 black and white film in a dark room. THe school displayed this photo in the main office and she is sibmitting it in an art show. All her photos are done with an old film camera and she takes the time and develops each of her photos by hand. The Inner Me "I created this multiple image photo of my naked back and within in a photo of Israel to resemble who I really am. Although I was born and raised in Boulder, both my parents were not. My heritage is traced all the way across tho ocean to Israel where all our family is. We go back to visit at least once a year, twice if we are lucky and eventhough I was born here, I believe Israel is still home to me. I chose to make two photos for my self portrait because the smaller multiple image showed more detail of the city on my back. The bricks on the floor began on my lower back representing walking into the future and away from the past. All around me is dark because it is still the unknown in my life. The picture of the city is a walkway overlooking Israel as my future. The larger photo has less detail which I also like because it brings out the light in my back. The longer you look at the picture the more you begin to see. Once again it is a dark picture and alot of open space around me to leave room for my future. I love the pieces that I have created because it truely symbolizes me now, and who I will be in later years to come. The experience to develop my own film and photography opened a new creativity to me. It allows me to see things I wouldn't normally see through a lens and I definitely think the photos I make capture an image that means something to me. This is a place BACK home!" Leah Gilady,2009
