Gretchen Hind Designs Earrings Included in 2013 'Mother's Day in Hollywood' Celebrity Gift Bags

Gretchen Hind Designs will have its Mama Love Earrings as part of The Artisan Group's collaborative gift bags for 25 of Hollywood's most talked about celebrity moms and moms-to-be, including Claire Danes, Megan Fox, Shakira, Penélope Cruz and Kristin Cavallari.

Online PR News – 07-May-2013 – Evanston, IL – Evanston, Illinois - Gretchen Hind Designs, owned by jewelry designer Gretchen Hind, will have its Mama Love – Signature Design gemstone earrings included as part of collaborative, special gift bags of handcrafted artisan products assembled by The Artisan Group for 25 of Hollywood's most talked about celebrity mothers and moms-to-be. The celebrity gift bags will be delivered in honor of Mother’s Day, May 12th.

Hind’s “Mama Love” layered hoop wire earrings hail from her recognized signature design collection. The earrings’ unique gold-filled and plated hand-formed hoops, entwined with high-end faceted carnelian and amazonite gemstones, are the perfect choice for these celebrity moms. Hind chose to gift this design because of the modern spring color combinations and simple, fun style suitable for every day and easily transitional from day to night. “I wanted to gift earrings that would be pretty and easy for a stylish new mother to slip on for a stroll to the park, a day of shopping, or to meet a friend for lunch – casual elegance.” She arranged the gemstones in alternative colors to represent the whimsy and playfulness that one rediscovers with motherhood.

After bombarding family and friends with my creations and prototypes I opened an Etsy shop and Gretchen Hind Designs was born!

In addition to placement of the gemstones and seasonal consideration, Hind, a believer in the metaphysical benefits of gemstones, specifically chose to incorporate carnelian and amazonite for their healing properties beneficial to new mothers. Carnelian is said to be an energy booster, helps one maintain a sense of humor, and calms the temper. Amazonite is a soothing stone which calms the brain and nervous system and aids in maintaining optimum health. It also is said to balance masculine and feminine energies and alleviate worry and fear.

This project holds a special place in Hind’s heart, as she recalls starting her jewelry business as a new mother. In 2009, after leaving a career in human resources consulting to be a stay-at-home-mom, she began wire wrapping stones and beach glass she and her little boy found on a Lake Michigan beach near their home. Hind shares, “After bombarding family and friends with my creations and prototypes, I opened an Etsy shop, and Gretchen Hind Designs was born!”

Since then, Hind's repertoire and customer base has increased significantly, with sales recorded in 47 US States, Washington, D.C., and numerous international locations. She specializes in high-quality, affordable signature designs with a vintage modern vibe, handcrafted using only creativity and simple hand tools.

Hind has been the subject of stories in, The Chicago Examiner, In Her Shoes blog, Two Sisters Anytown Blog, The Power Player Lifestyle Magazine, and Hollywood Today. As a proud and active member of The Artisan Group, her jewelry has been gifted to numerous celebrities, including Renée Zellweger, Rachael Ray, Tyra Banks, Paula Abdul, Hilary Duff, Cari Cucksey, and Alison Sweeney, as well as to stylists for a number of popular television shows.
