Introducing The Crown Yourself Bracelet

If you have been following along
my blog
this year
you have read about my idea
of taking the time to 
Crown Ourselves
in an attempt 
to fully realize and celebrate 
our own uniqueness.

For me
although I personally
love wearing a literal crown
I also believe there are a myriad of ways to
Crown Ourselves.

I see 
Crowning Ourselves
as akin to
 self care
the kind that
believes in taking the time
to self invest
self reflect on our qualities
that make each of us 
special in our own right.

I believe 
Crowning Ourselves
Self Care
can be done in so many ways 
like …

Buying ourselves  weekly flowers
to remind ourselves
of the beauty to be found
in the little moments
in life
that truly 
make up the big ones.

Taking time for candles and reflection.
My favorite time of my day
is my morning coffee and candles
a clipboard of blank paper
before sunrise …
it makes me reflect on the vast possibilities 
of my new day.

Quality time spent 
with a good book
a walk in nature
free time in the garden
are all examples
Crowning Ourselves
Self Care.

I could go on and on ….

Basically they are all ways
to invest in 
treating ourselves well
remembering our own intrinsic worth.

I believe we all need to 
be intentional
in finding
our own inner magic
Crown Ourselves!

I also like the idea
of having a piece of jewelry 
to wear as a simple reminder
 to take the time to 
Crown Ourselves.

So I have designed just such a piece in the form of
After searching high and low
for the perfect natural howlite beads
form Nova Scotia
in a natural matte finish
of the creamiest of creme colors …
the perfect three dimensional crown charms
that I have flown in from Australia
as a literal reminder
of not only the the Queen
that does exist in each of us
but even more
that it is 
our own uniqueness
that we must learn to celebrate and embrace!

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life


  1. Your posts are full of warm California sun and sea glass breezes. Thank you for sending them our way. Your style and designs capture these coastal qualities and breathe an easy beach washed feeling in each post and piece. Love it all....(from the frozen tundra of Chicago)

  2. I would share the bracelet with my sister, she is my best friend!

  3. I would gift the bracelet to a coworker friend. It would really cheer her up. Thank you for the giveaway.

  4. I love this Tamera! It is the same philosophy as my I MATTER posts on Thursdays. I would wear your bracelet proudly to remember I MATTER! It is beautiful!

  5. Your designs and photos are stunning!!!

  6. I love your creativity Tamera! From your writing, to your photos, to your jewellery, home decor and ideas for self care. What a wonderful giveaway. If I was to win, I would share one with a friend I have in mind. She has been there through everything with me. She "gets" me. This past year has been crazy, and every month went by way too quickly.....before we knew it, it was more than a year since we had talked "in person". However.....I am not surprised how easy it was to just pick up where we left off on our lunch date that we finally were able to go on. Thanks Tamera for your feels like an old friend. ;) mycontact:crapo{at}shaw{dot}ca

  7. Tamera you are the Queen of Crowns. The rest of us are just runner-ups but all crown-worthy nonetheless. I love starting the day with a blank piece of paper. I'm so happy to hear that you do the same thing.

  8. I agree with Connie! You are the queen of crowns! I just received a lovely package in the mail yesterday! I had ordered some locally made beeswax candles. They smell heavenly....candles and flowers are ever so lovely!

    Now, who would I crown? Gosh, there are so many friends that come to mind...but I think my Mom would truly deserve the honor!

  9. Your crowns are always so beautiful, and what a delightful idea to have Crown bracelet giveaways. I found you on Facebook! Love that the little crowns come from Australia! I would gift the bracelet to a lovely friend and colleague at the Gallery. xx

  10. Lovely, lovely bracelets! I would share one with my daughter who is amazing and teaches me so much!

  11. Your post touches a chord in me today. Sometimes we do forget to celebrate our own uniqueness and reward ourselves with whatever crown makes us happy. I'll probably not do all you ask above, but I'm always here to enjoy your words.

  12. inspiring you are! your style...sharing.
    ..would share with my friend Linda...who is like a sister.

  13. Tamera...they are gorgeous...I am going to enter ;)
    You look so beautiful draped in cashmere on the seashore.
    Have a lovely weekend. xx

  14. You are such an inspiration with your joyful energy and creativity! I have followed your blog for over a year and I've delighted in every one of your beautiful posts. Thank you so much for sharing your beauty and light through your blog! I love the crown bracelets and would share with my dear friend Ada who is also a joyful light in the world.

  15. Good Afternoon my friend! ~ I love these bracelets and would definitely crown my sweet friend Lauren who is going thru a very difficult divorce - after 32 years of marriage she is not only devastated but feels "adrift"....anything I can do to let her know that she is so very special to so many - I will do! Thank you Tamera for being such an inspiration! - Pam Atkinson

  16. I would share the bracelet with my sister. She is 13 years older than me and has always been helpful to me in finding my inner magic!

  36. I would crown my Mother, who is my best friend in the entire world. She is such a wonderful, kind, and special woman. My Dad has cancer and I am chronically ill and she spends so much time taking care of the two of us. I appreciate her more than words can express.

  37. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity. I would send a bracelet to my sister if I were the winner. Hugs P.S. I hope you wills top by and enter my giveaway too.

  38. What a perfect and magical way of remembering to "crown" ourselves on a daily basis. Love the living thoughts and inspiration that goes along with these bracelets. You already know who I would crown, my beautiful daughter. (But then we would need to order a special size for the true princess, Mollydoll, since she takes our jewelry off immediately and puts it right on herself).

  39. I made it under the wire! Your bracelets are beautiful and I would love to "crown" my beloved daughter Camille. Thanks for the opportunity, Tamera!
