What is it that you are looking for when buying jewelry either for yourself or as a gift? Is it a certain brand name? The reputation of a big store you are purchasing the piece from? Does the price testify to the quality? The more expensive the better, right?
Have you ever thought what it is that draws you to purchase a certain piece of jewelry or that draws you to a particular store or a particular online retailer? I'd love it if you shared your thoughts with me in the comments below. But before we get there, I'd like to give you some food for thought. Check out the YouTube video below and let me know what you think. I'm all ears!
Do you prefer video advertising that tells a story or advertising (either print or video) that only shows the product? Why? I'd love it if you shared with me.

Those who have ever rescued an animal have probably been on the receiving end of a comment that goes something like this, "Oh, you are an angel!" In dog rescue circles specifically, the term "rescue angel" is used often for those who pull unwanted dogs from shelters, transport them to their foster or forever homes, and for those who foster and/or adopt such animals. It is not uncommon to also hear those pooches referred to as "rescued angels," especially if their behavior in their new homes warrants such characterization, and for many of them it does. Somehow, in some way, those rescues know they are in the clear, they are safe, loved and taken care of, and many of them show their "appreciation" by wanting to please their new humans the best they can.
As you may or may not know, all of the studio security staff here at hART Sense Design, both past and present, have been rescues of one kind or another. Our late, great studio security manager, Gage the English Setter, came to us through Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue, and that is why we try to support their efforts through our business. This year again, we are teaming up with A&B to help other setters in need through our new (ad)venture, the Smiling Setter Shop. To learn more, check out the nifty little video below.
Of course, the shop is named for our current studio security manager trainee, Dottie the Irish Setter.
...And, talking about the Irish, today happens to be St.Patrick's Day, and that's where the saints come (marching) in. In honor of this day and to show our love for the Irish, all green jewelry in our shop has been discounted by 20% all through the end of the month. Prices are already marked down - no coupon needed. So, go ahead, save some green for wearin' o' the green!
Have a very Happy St.Paddy's whether you are Irish or not!
Have you ever rescued an animal, and if so, what kind of animal was it? Let us know in the comments below.
The month of March is marching right along, and with it comes a bunch of exciting news.
Breaking with the tradition of relative quiet in the retail world at this time of year, we at hART Sense Design have several exciting things to announce.
First, in honor of the holiday of Purim, which starts on the evening of March 11th, we have discounted all of the Judaica themed jewelry in our shop by 20 percent. So, get yourself a little something before Purim is over. Chag Purim sameach!
Next, in order not to offend the Irish (or the Irish wannabes), we are also extending a St. Patrick's Day discount to our customers. Every green item in our shop is also discounted by 20% all through St. Paddy's Day. Who wouldn't want to save some green on the official Pantone color of the Year 2017?!?
Last but not least, we are again partnering with Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue for another fundraiser. Our new collection of designs for discerning dogs and their humans at Smiling Setter Shop has been launched, and all profits from sales will be going to support Above & Beyond ESR rescue efforts. So, if you have a dog, are a dog lover, or if you know one, click on the image below and choose one (or a few) of the available designs knowing that with your purchase you helped save a dog's life. English Setters of Above & Beyond will thank you, and so will Dottie, the original Smiling Setter.
Oh, and one more thing! After you have browsed and shopped all of these designs, make sure to let your friends and relatives know. Tell them everyone at hART Sense Design, including Dottie the Smiling Setter, would love to meet them.
