Be Present

We all live in a fleeting, invisible moment called "the present." Not only is now the time for us to take action, it also serves as a link between our warm, fading memories of the past, and the shining hope for the future.

Jewelry artist Beth Lawrence captures this passage of time in the Past Present Future jewelry suite. Each one has three interlocking circles: a muted, oxidized ring represents the past; a sterling silver ring wrapped with a band of silver wire captures the present; and a shimmering, gold filled ring represents the future. The three rings are held in place by sterling silver earring wires. More than just elegant accessories, the pieces in this collection offer a constant reminder to live in the moment. Included is a card explaining the jewelry's symbolism. Handmade in Nashville, Tennessee.

Nashville artist Beth Lawrence can't remember a time she hasn't made jewelry—she even sold her work to neighbors and boutiques while still in elementary school. After earning her degree in studio art, she worked at galleries throughout Atlanta and Nashville before rekindling her passion for creating jewelry. Drawing inspiration from geometry, she makes her pieces with "love and a hammer," using sterling silver and gold-filled wire to form accessories that are simple and delicate.

Love these!


I love the meaning behind these earrings as well as the look and quality.



These are beautifully made.


I bought these to celebrate my 70th year. I loved the "past, present and future" theme chosen for the earrings. They are beautifully made and they are so light to wear. I've received my compliments on them. I can wear them every day and they are still perfect for a special occasion.

Lovely but MUCH smaller than pic


The 'view life-size image' for this item it totally wrong. They are very pretty but MUCH smaller than i expected.The largest circle is not much bigger than my thumbnail. Materials feel a little lightweight but if you like small, delicate earrings you'll like these.

I bought this for my grandmother's birthday as a representation of her wonderful life and the lovely person she is. It is beautiful and she wore them straight away.

Small but lovely


I wanted the necklace in this line for myself since I loved the design, but it was a bit too small. So, when my mom's birthday came around, I still had this in mind and got the earrings for her. They look great and will work for many different occasions.



She loved them!


She loved them and said they were very comfortable.

Much smaller than pictured


I had to buy an additional gift after seeing how small this one was, perhaps using a coin as "scale" would give a buyer a better idea of the true size.

Love the mixed metal look


I love the mixed metal look, and these earrings matched the necklace, so a perfect opportunity to add to my collection.
