The Mia's are named after my youngest daughter. 

We love to walk on the beach. One day, when she was still very small, she picked up a little pebble, held it aloft, and said "Mommy, you should make earrings like these!" with the biggest smile on her face.

So that's what I did.  I've been making earrings in the shape of that little pebble ever since.  It reminds me of that day on the beach and makes me smile every time.
