About

I design each necklace to be as distinctive and special as the person who wears it...

Many people are surprised when the marketing consultant and writer they hired – or "Book Author" they meet—also designs jewelry! Actually, there is a great similarity between creating a press release, ghostwriting an article or editorial, or crafting a tactical marketing plan—and designing a piece of jewelry. Words or gemstones. Both need to be carefully considered in order to meet the needs of the client and the target audience. As my jewelry-designing persona, “Miriam Bat-Rachel,” I design each item of jewelry around the shapes and colors of the natural stones—choosing and then arranging the stones and sterling silver beads on my worktable, moving them around until I like the way they look. When designing the silver or bronze wire accents, I bend and twist the wire, so it looks natural on the focal stone—literally as if it were part of the natural texture of the stone. Words and gemstones. Working with either takes great precision. They both light up my creative spirit!

Miriam's Story: How Mending a Broken Heart Led to Artistic Discovery… When my mother passed away in September 2002, just two years following my father's death, I found it very hard to write. A book I was writing languished. Articles and editorials I planned on writing didn't get beyond the first two paragraphs. And I wasn't interested in taking on new client projects. Despite a satisfying career and personal home-life, I felt as though my soul had been torn from me. My mother was an artist, and among her many framed and unframed paper toles (paper sculptures) I found tucked away in our suburban New Jersey home, were several boxes of vintage beads that Mom had been saving for one of her projects. As I began looking through the beads, I kept thinking about my mother's artwork, how she placed each tiny piece of paper onto her paper tole canvas to create a lifelike picture. I gently touched her needlework, hoping to feel the softness of her hands as she worked so carefully on every stitch. I decided to look for ways to work with the beads--and just looking through the craft magazines seemed to soothe me, helped me deal with my grief.

I thought about my mother - and my grandmothers. Both grandmothers were artistic, using fabric and a variety of trimmings to create wonderful clothing and accessories.

My grandmothers taught me their crafts, and when I was a young child, my mother used to draw beautiful pictures for me, and I would mimic her work. In her later years, she created wonderful paper sculptures (Paper Toles)--selling some and giving others away as gifts to family. For months, my mind was filled with little else, except these family memories - and the grief I felt about losing my parents.

In 2003, my soul mate (Jerry) encouraged me to show my beaded products to an art gallery and gift shop, to get the owner's opinion. Would she consider carrying a couple of pens in her shop? As a marketer, I was used to making cold calls, so I set up an appointment--put a sample case together, and off I went. Imagine my delight when a week later, a popular art gallery and boutique on Chicago's North Michigan Avenue, was displaying my products. So there I was, at the age of 58, suddenly starting an entirely new business, and using the artisan name, Miriam Bat-Rachel: Miriam, my Hebrew name. Bat, which is Hebrew for "daughter of," and Rachel, my mother's Hebrew name. The company name is also derived from personal experience. "Moonbeams" is from "Rosh Hodesh," a Hebrew symbol of renewal, celebrated at each new moon. It is a powerful opportunity to consider our lives, our commitments, and our goals. "Lilacs" were my mother's birth flower and treasured scent, and "Roses" were a favorite flower--and one of the first flowering bushes she and my father planted in front of their first home, where they lived for more than 50 years.

My Dad also had an eye for art. He was an amateur photographer, whose work was so inspiring. In his memory, I take all the photographs of my jewelry that appear on my website.

I really thought creating beaded accessories, like pens and letter openers, and then jewelry, would be a hobby--something I would eventually set aside as I went back to my editorial business full-time. I did return to Marion Gold Communications, but beading and jewelry design remains a significant, enriching, and permanent part of my personal and professional life.

Jewelry-making continues to enhance my life emotionally, and intellectually. Intellectually, as I learn more and more about the variety of natural stones, and market my products both on my website and to the retail community. Emotionally, because Moonbeams, Lilacs and Roses is a tribute to my parents. I know how much my mother would love the jewelry, especially my amethyst and charoite pieces (her favorite color was purple); and my father collected ballpoint pens, so he would really get a kick out of the beaded pens I craft.

    Who would imagine that a corporate executive and award winning author and writer would also begin designing jewelry? It wasn't on my professional agenda! But in 2003, my personal and professional journey led me to launch Moonbeams Lilacs & Roses.
