Get out your Credit Cards, mysisterwifescloset.com is ONLINE

The Day: Sunday June 24th, 2012
The Time: 9:00 AM

Hold on to your American Express Centurion Card (you know, that Black one), the Sister Wive's Online store is now, officially OPEN for BUSINESS!!

A quick look around is...well...a little depressing. And extremely funny in a Are you F***ing Kidding Me kind of way.

First, only the jewelry "department" was live, and it only had 9 different items for sale. Excuse me for a moment, I just can't stop laughing at how meager the online store offerings are...let's just say Neiman Marcus they are not. In fact, I've seen better selections at Target. Really...how long has this been in the works and only 9 items for sale?

The cheapest priced item is $55.00, for a truly hideous My Sisterwife's Closet Pendant. I wonder if the sister wives understand that the 'beauty' of their store logo is its rainbow-like coloring. It's completely loss in a black and white photo -- let's hope the actual item maintains the rainbow affect, because it looks like an animal paw in black and white. The most expensive item is a $299.00 Claddagh Charm Necklace and Charms personally designed by Robyn, presented by Robyn to her Sister Wives for Christmas 2011. Looking around, it seems a majority of the items were designed by Robyn.

Hmmm.... isn't that a surprise.

No the real surprise is that one item was actually designed by Christine - the Super Woman Pendant ($93.50). Words simply cannot describe....

Anyway, I have many pet peeves that I'll keep to myself, but... (yeah I couldn't resist) why are the photographs in stark black and white, and why the hell aren't the accessories and clothing sections open yet? Why the mystery about what credit cards are accepted? We buyers like to know on your front page what credit cards you take! By the way, it's the standard 4 -- Amex, Visa, Mastercard and Discover.

So let's put out some numbers. If 1000 of their diehard fans buy the $299.00 Claddagh Charm Necklace and Charms, assuming they will receive a $40.00 discount (that's what it said - buy the whole set and get a $40.00 discount), how much money will Robyn make, Christine. Christine? Did you hear the question? You must have because I see you taking your shoes off to count your toes...

Okay, $259,000.00. Why, that's enough to put a 40% down payment on one of the cul-de-sac McMansions!

  1. I could be wrong, but I don't think the photos are black and white. They are color photos of silver jewelry on a black background. At least that's how it looks on my screen.

    1. Yep. They're in "full color" sterling silver on glassy black surface. I can't believe that they have the balls to charge that kind of scratch for Silver. Most of their "Rabid fans", who have been chomping at the bit to "support the family" are not likely to have that kind of expendable income--but that won't stop the Browns from taking adventage of the "sharks", I suppose.

  2. Yeah, not sure about the jewelry, if it would turn my finger green or tarnish or give me a rash. (I have sensitive skin).

    However, handbags are my undoing, so if I were to cave and buy something from them, a handbag would be where it's at for me.

    I like claddagh rings, but not their mutilated versions. Yeah, not so much.

  3. BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! I love my CJ! I felt you writing as I was looking! LOL

    It really is incredulous to me that's all they could come up with. How sad for them. I mean, it's been a good year and a half since they have really worked. And this is their cream of the crop?

    Actually, unless it as a Rhodium Plating, it may tarnish. Did you know that stainless steel actually holds up better? That mess probably is of the cheapest material. I would place my bets on green soon!

  4. I don't know why but I expected more. I was under the impression that it would be better, all of it, the website, the products....
    You can but high grade silver items from Tiffany & co for about $100. If I were purchasing jewelry I would spend the extra $25.
    And why the hell is kodouches picture on that website? And the sw necklace really does look teenage targeted. What parent in their right mind is going to want their teenage little girl wear that? A sisterwife is the last thing I would want any little girl to aspire to be.
    It used to be fun watching the trainwreck that was kodouche and his son called wives but now they're just annoying. They need to get their butts working regular jobs if they refuse to really try at the opportunities this show has brought them.

    1. Teenaged targeted…think teenaged sisterwives. Or kids like Mariah who can't wait to be sisterwives!

      Or really, any 40something sisterwife with a mental/emotional age of 14.

      Gotta know your market demographic!

    2. Agreed, look at Christine and Robyn, mentally their teenagers. I think it's because all they know is this bubble of religion and children. Their not the only ones like that though. There are many women that do nothing more than have children and follow extreme religions in this country and never truly have a chance to develop themselves, you know. It's unfortunate, but whatever.

      Delete
    3. vxx: I wouldn't completely blame religion on some women having the mentality of a teenager. Sometimes it's simply how their parents raised them... sheltering them from the world and not allowing them to know anything else but co-dependency. So when they are thrust out into the real world, they aren't able to cope and tend to look towards someone else to take care of them. I have a friend like that; her mother babied her (still does and I try not to think about her having the emotional maturity of a 15 yr old), and now all she wants to do is get married, so a man can take care of her. It's all very sad.

  5. Let's see, so hard to tell where to begin!

    So what strikes me first is the "RING WITH A WORM ON IT". What an AWESOME CONCEPT!!!

    I have always wanted a ring with a worm on it.

    Or is it a baby snake? Put two snakes together and you get SisterWives????

    Wonderful, Awesome, Super!!!

    And the Kreepy Hands!!! yes, with abnormally long fingers. Like a Witches hands...Great for Nose Picking!!! Something about the raised edge on the thumb too. Very malformed, just like a polygamous family!!! Yes, truly the motif for the Browns!

    Yes, the SWC logo is there, and it's lacking the color. But the lack of color just brings out the subtle messaging in the logo that might otherwise be missed!!!

    Seriously. It's a paw print!! Of a Cat (the little dots are where the claws hit the mold).

    Yes the cat print is another equally apt symbol for the sisterwives relationship! Claws out, circling each other hissing and spitting, the four women maintain their territory!

    I just really love Christine's design. Why try to kid themselves about what they're trying to represent? Why hide it behind pretensions and attempted glamour? Just come out and put S W out there. Put a square behind it to represent the four of them (four sides, four corners, get it?). See? Duh!!!

    And Christines can be multipurpose.

    A new trend to advertize your favorite compass point!
    Represent Kody's favorite Gun Manufacturer?

    So many more possibilities! So Bold!

    Well done ladies, well done!

  11. I agree, some of them are quite pricey, but it's sterling silver and it says they are hand-crafted - that usually blows prices up. Overall, I think the site looks ok, but still needs a lot of work. Great blog btw, I've been reading it for a couple of days!

    ReplyDelete
  12. First of all, the jewelry looks horrible. Then,it doesn't tell you what the jewelry is actually made of. Is it silver? Is it silver-coated copper? Who knows? But, anyone who shells out $220 for jewelry without asking questions about the material has just as much financial sense as anyone in the Brown family.

    1. STERLING SILVER is an internationally recognized standard, that means it must be 92% pure silver (silver, like gold is too soft to use in its purest form). Nothing can be called sterling silver unless it meets that standard. The poliss and finish is what separates "good SS". That being said, this crap is ugly and all those tiny crevices and words will likely tarnish super fast.

That said, the browns really should give u a cut of the proceeds...methinks that a LOT of their traffic website today will be due to your link and fellow bloggers.

  14. Oops... I'm still hung over from last night. I just saw the line that says sterling silver all the way at the end.

    1. No worries CrazyOne, I think the real thing the Browns want to sell is themselves. Doesn't matter what the items are or what they're made of or where it comes from....they just want ppl. to buy it. Buy into this family and become the cheering section regardless of their hypocrisy and ego...and then buy their stuff, no matter if it's green energy drink, a gym membership, jewelry,clothes,purses.
      The Browns love those who love them and are counting on the fans to make their dreams come true. It's magical ain't it?

  15. Wow...ugly paws & snake-like things.

    They also can't seem to decide if SW stands for sister wives, strong women or now super woman. Hmmmm...none of the above seem to adequately describe these goons!

  16. All the hoopla about their online business opening today and the only thing available is their jewelry section!
    Sorry, I wanted to be optimistic and think that finally they had a way to support their families. Sadly their items are EXPENSIVE and hideous. The rings look like they have an inch worm type thing and they are $200 +!!! What are they thinking?
    The one designed by Christine with the SW looks like Scooby-Doo's pendant. There is only one that is kind of OK. The plain circle one, still the price is high for something like that.

    Seriously I don't know how many people will buy their expensive junk. Good luck it's all we can wish them...

  17. I don't know about anyone else but I haven't worn jewelry with initials on it since I was 14.
    Where is the pink rhinestone "K"? I mean I pretty sure Robchin would share.

    Why are all the descriptions the same. I think they wrote this themselves. You know in one of those high pressure fortune five hundred business meetings they have at MGM's house.

      When you are on the home page, the Contact button up in the upper right hand corner does work - at least in my browsers. I tried it in Firefox and IE and it opened.

They're not even willing to invest a one time 40 dollars to upgrade the package of their free website software, which allows up to 5 e-mail addresses? This means that they also don't have enhanced security. So be sure to give them all your personally identifying info to go with the CC number. Good Lord.

  23. Ok. let's do the math..well because that's what I like do to! Robyn 'designed' this jewelry at Christmas 2011. And she shares her 'dream' of opening my sisterwives closet during that episode. So it's been SIX months and all they can get on their website is 9 pieces of jewelry? It is underwhelming and I had very low expectations to begin with. I'm not a jewelry designer so I am not going to comment on the pieces.. but I am going to comment on how they should have a much larger selection and price range. I will admit if there was something in the low-ish price range ($20-25) I was considering buying something so I could see how they run their business (i.e. how was the delivery, the packaging, etc). But I certainly won't do that for these prices. They have to realize that their prices are high and that this will limit sales. Could any of them purchased this jewelry before the show? I suppose they will have starry eyed gushing fans buying some items but I don't see any long term business coming out of this.

    I know Janelle really isn't too excited about this business vs. Fundamental Fitness so maybe she wasn't part of this business launch. But if she was, I am very disappointed. She should know that they needed to have a more robust website with more products at the launch. If that means they all needed to put in some extra hours to get it done right, they should have done so. It's just so sloppy of all of them to put their names and reputations on such a half-a$$ed effort. It seems like this is the Brown way of doing everything - half way and the 'bare minimum'. Now honestly who is going to want to 'partner' with these people long term?

    From a purely financial perspective, this is a total bomb. And I am seriously beginning to think none of them have any real intentions to work to make any business run, they are just going to do everything sloppily and half way.

    2. I wonder if Fundamental Fitness would be less risky than the jewelry store. Didn't Janelle actually develop a business plan for FF? I don't know that I'd have it in Vegas but maybe in Utah it would be like a Curves place for the plyg ladies. Maybe the online store is cheaper since you don't have to pay a property lease, hire staff, and purchase equipment... but in terms of viability, which would be better?

      Delete
    3. Their website is hilariously terrible: there's no shipping policy, their privacy policy was last updated(copied?) on August 3, 2003, and their "goal is to bring new and fresh products to the market that all families can use." That sounds more like, say, a bulk food business than it does a jewelry and accessories business.

      The "help" for entering the ring size isn't helpful. Not everyone know their ring size and it's different between the US and Europe. Were none of their superfans available to do basic quality testing on this site? Sheesh, it's not like website QA is hard. Not doing it makes them look unprofessional - which of course they are.

      I make jewelry as a hobby and am taking lessons on working with sterling silver so I feel I can comment on the design and presentation of the pieces.

      In general, the repetition in the description about the special bond the sisterwives have is totally unnecessary; that sort of thing clutters up the descriptions and belongs at the top of the page. There also aren't enough views of or information about each piece. I expect to see a front and back view and, for rings, a side and top view as well. I also expect to see detailed measurements for each piece and information about how the piece has been constructed. For example, is the logo pendant pierced or stamped and then oxidized? Internet selling 101 tells us that customers need a lot of information about the product because they can't touch it or see it in person.

      I'm not a fan of spelling out the meaning of each claddaugh symbol and making charms out of those words to add to the ring that also uses those words.

      I don't love the fonts on the rings or the claddaugh charms and ring but they're better than the "SW" pendant font which looks out of place amongst the rest of the collection.

      The interlocking rings are interesting, but who would wear something that says sisterwife on the band?

      The claw pendant (aka the sisterwife's closet logo) is sort of cute in a cartoon way. It looks nothing like the logo.

      Now onto the pricing. These prices have to include the cost of manufacturing, which won't be cheap. Hand-making them (which really means casting them over and over and over again) in the US isn't difficult but it will take more time and will be more expensive than larger-scale manufacturing.

      The prices are definitely much higher than one would expect for mass-produced sterling silver items and are more on par with one-of-a-kind pieces that are being produced by the artisan. Because these aren't one-of-a-kind items, I think that they're overpriced either to cover the cost of hand-made manufacturing or to try to make a boatload of money.

      I am unimpressed.

  24. I wonder how much of the profits from show, jewelry and other ventures will go back to the state of Utah for years of welfare fraud and food stamp fraud? Why doesn't Utah go after them when he clearly states he is the father responsible for all these kids. If he would have claimed to be their father on applications than he would owe $100,000 in chid support by now. Just a reminder that these people have raised their children on our tax dollars.

  25. So I just want to say, if they were smart with business, which they obviously are not, then they would have had this open prior to the season beginning and kept amping up by adding new overpriced crap each week, but their not so their loss. Sterling silver over priced crap, ok I applaud the effort but really bad timing. Their not going to make shit compared to if they would have done it sooner and worked harder, faster, smarter. Oh, but I guess that's why this joke of a family has had 3 bankruptcies already because their soooo smart! Uck! :(

  26. This Sister Wife's Closet idea is stupid. If anything they should sell that stuff in a physical store in Hildale, Utah so FLDS members can buy it. What monogamous woman would want to wear sister wife jewelery? And the online store will not be frequented by FLDS members because they aren't allowed to use the internet. They should THINK before opening a business. An online store is not the way to reach their potential customers and their pieces are overpriced.

    1. Great points sarina but the very fact that they're doing business on the Sabbath, online, is a tip off that their target buyers are the fans that are enamored with them.
      They're seeking customers that are dazzled by the mancub's antics and customers that get caught up in the emotional landmines that the show highlights.
      They want the houses that are just out of their grasp and the devoted fans, not true fellow sisterwives, can give them these homes if they buy enough stuff.
      That's how I see it anyway,lol.

  27. This "jewelry" on their website is just tacky & ughhhh!!!
    Did ya'll check out their return/refund policy?? Basically after 7 Calendar days(of the item delivered), it's at their sole discretion. So, basically you may not get your $$ back, but instead a store credit :/ ...On top of that, customer has to pay to resend the jewelry back + 15% Restocking fee!! Dang, they wanna keep your $$, whether or not you like their shitty stuff or not!!
    Basically, 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed isn't available or even offered from SWC!
    Their is a place on the SWC website, that you can write a review about the jewelry though!! :D

    Oh, yeah, something else that caught my attention was the VOLUSION Web Software they're using. Offers a FREE 14 Day Trial (no fees, no committment, no credit card)
    Hmmmm????? I'm guessing, the jewelry line will only be open for 14 days, then, they'll open up the accessories line w/ another 14 day free trial from another source, etc.....afterall, they do like to bleed the beast, to the best of their ability.
    Also, I think, today, will be the only good day of sales for them since it is the season finale. Using the finale to play on their fans emotions of we really need $$ to get into 4 homes BS, etc....smh
    This biz venture will eventually tank, though!
    For them, to try & use the SW to stand for something like super woman, or strong woman, other than Sister Wives, is also being a bit deceitful too!! When they know, good & well, their sole intention is Sister Wives(eyes rolling)
    Now, they're are plenty of other SW on a pink super woman logos out there, that I would gladly wear, bcuz the SW meaning is CLEAR!! Super Woman!!

    I betcha, they will try to use the SW logo on a T-shirt as well too!! Well, here's a T-shirt idea for you:

    A plain white Tee with Team Brown(in Brown coloring of course...) & then add 5 big brown turds on the shirt too!! :D

    1. Yes, clearly the site is not professionally designed from the layout to the user interface, to the copy on the jewelry descriptions. I'm thinking they invested as little as possible to see if it would take off and THEN they'll consider making it nicer. That kind of sounds like backwards logic to me.

  31. Off topic, but Kody just tweeted that him & Meri are definitely planning to go skiing this winter. So, she better get her knee in shape & he loves her guts!! O_o

    Really?? Bitching & moaning about not being able to afford 4 homes for the family, but crying & playing on their fans emotions & wallets, just WRONG!! I hope to God, that their giddy fan base, will soon see right thru all the BS the Browns are really about!!
    Instead of planning trips w/ wives, he should be more concerned about moving expenses,etc... I'm sure the wives, will want to redecorate their new homes too! Which Kody, will have to pacify the 'neglected' wives by allowing them to redecorate,etc...since none of them are going to Mexico, or ski trips.
    Wow, so far Meri has gone to Mexico twice & now a ski trip?? Betcha this doesn't sit well with the others!! Also, this is just like how Janelle explained in the book. That Meri got to go on ALL THE TRIPS!! Guess, too many things really haven't changed!!
    Wake up Janelle & Christine & get the hell outta there! Seems like it will never be better for you two at all!!

They could do stackable rings for that occasion so the all-important alpha male gets new bling with each wife. Then there could also be some really ugly pinky rings.

I don't see the two "S"s or how they overlap to make the W, but I like it- reminds me of the James Avery look as does the charm necklace, though that looks a little more "junior high school". I don't understand why their logo is a paw (?) and the SW pendant is lame. Now, I would NEVER EVER EVER buy any of this stuff, but had to stick up for the SW ring.

  57. I'm watching the "marathon." I missed the Meri and Kody in Mexico episode. Kody says: "I know Polygamists who never take a wife anywhere, as that raises expectations." So let me get this straight, Kody is a prince among polygamists? They all just keep expectations low, providing the bare minimum for happiness and survival? I'm trying to be open-minded about this life being, possibly, good for them (not me, not ever), and it's getting really hard.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The truth is, Catriona, that most polygamists are pretty poor and can't afford to take anyone on too many trips, and yes it is also true that expectations are low. The only reason Kody can keep taking these vacations and trips right now is because of the TLC gravy train. I remember very clearly that it wasn't so long ago that Kody and his tribe were running backwards and forwards from Wyoming to Utah, trying to find ways to support them all. I think he was turned down once when he wanted to add on another woman, and was told he couldn't even support the ones he had - so he should stop boasting about his generosity to the women he's managed to collect. Who knows what tomorrow may bring?

    2. Meri hate? I think this episode was about making everyone sympathetic to her, which, as a story-teller, makes me think they are arcing up for the announcement that Meri's eggs are viable and Robyn is the surrogate. Why? Because they are not going to end this on a low note. The big, hairy, lovey ending is supposed to justify the good side of sister-wives, which would be surrogacy if needed ... and justify Meri's larger home. You heard it hear first. I'll take the ribbing if I'm wrong.

      Robyn's baby is old enough now that her belly should be down if she's working on it. I think she's pregnant.

  62. Wowza....Meri is something else. I can't stop shaking my head. I really felt for Janelle tonight. What in the world is wrong with Meri? What happened to the fact that they are one big happy family and being concerned about everyone? I would love a giant house as well, but for the sake of my family, I sure wouldn't put their needs on the behind my own. No wonder Janelle might stress eat, she is carrying a huge burden on her shoulders and having to deal with Meri would probably drive me to drink.

    2. I have to say that I felt a bit sorry for Meri and I understand how she might come across as critical or witchy sometimes. Being barren - more or less - can be a heartbreaker. I cannot imagine sharing my husband and watching my sister wives have child after child when I could not have more than the one. I think that might make one a bit bitter. I also think her status as first wife was diminished by it, with the other wives and children saying things like she didn't need a big house. You know what? She might not need it, but she deserves it. She is the first wife - and the only legal one. She has put up with new wives, lots of new children, etc., etc. I don't care about her income with regard to the family before - with the television show, her contributions are equal to those of the other wives. Just because she has one child should not relegate her to a shed in the back of the property or less of a house. Less of a house, whether it be bedrooms, pool, wet bar, or what, would equal a reduction in status for her in the eyes of all the other wives and children. Bet on it. She is justified in asking for the same home, pricewise, as each of the other wives.

      Delete
    3. Anonymous...
      Yes, I agree with you on the fact that her anger and bitterness stems from not being able to have more children....I have written my theory on that many times on here. She knew Janelle from being married to her brother, and in the book it states how mean she was to Janelle when she was brought in. Even Natalie kept hitting that key point tonight. No wonder Janelle didn't care what Meri thought when she got pregnant. It's because Meri threw it in her face any chance she could that she was not welcome. Now, after seeing the tell all talk...I think she was angry that the marriage fell through with the 18 year old. Actually, if you read back on the boards, many of the members have researched this relationship and the girl wasn't quite 18 yet and it was SHE that called it off. They emphasized several times tonight that Meri loved her as well. I have also written on here a few times that I do believe Meri wanted Robyn brought in because she was punishing Christine. Meri's miscarriage happened right before Christine got pregnant with Truely. Meri had stated several times that she and Kody had hit a very rough spot. Now, tonight I find out that it was during the time they were courting Robyn, and Robyn went to counseling with them. This just confirms my idea of why Meri brought Robyn in. I used to feel sorry for Meri too, until I started pealing back the layers of what this woman is about.

      Now, on to the houses. NONE of them should be getting a house that large because NONE of them can afford it. I'd love to have a decked out luxury vehicle someday, but I know I need to send my kids to college. When you agree to this lifestyle, sacrifices are made. The house issue was not brought up until they moved to Vegas. Janelle shouldered the burden and cashed in her retirement to help fund these houses. She made plenty of sacrifice herself, and has 6 kids and is not legally married to Kody. So she has a lot more burden on her shoulders than Meri. When they went house hunting, Meri broke down crying because she felt she deserved a large home too (when they were searching for rental homes). If you have no idea how you are going to makes ends meet, then I don't agree that Meri should have a sprawling home. She could of done nicely with a two bedroom and to be quite honest, Meri and Robyn should of been put in one home just until they all got settled. Now, if they can afford to have big luxury homes for everyone, then by all means...have at it. But, with all of the welfare fraud, bankruptcies, and no one having a permanent real job with benefits and about 5 kids getting ready to go to college, then I have to concede that I think their priorities are very askew.

    ReplyDelete
  69. All of the designs appear to be pretty basic modifications of existing designs, just different enough not to cause copyright infringement charges. The "claddaugh" one would be much better if they had left out the top part, but I suppose they were trying to make it look like a ring. Otherwise, it would just look like all those photos kids take with their hands together to form hearts. I don't see how they are going to make much money with these rudimentary designs. But then again, I am not sure the goal is to make money for anyone but Kody and the corporation. I'm sure the women are just being "paid" a pittance so that they still qualify for the benefits from the State. I'm sure Utah was happy to drop charges against Kody, because when they left, they became a drain on Nevada's welfare system, instead of Utah's.

    1. I know! Why doesn't the state of Utah try to recoup some of what was misrepresented/stolen from them? That's why Kodouche wanted to get out like a bat of hell. He's a deadbeat dad if ever there was one. The women were probably bullied into misrepresenting themselves

  72. i was absolutely sickened by tonights tell all episode.

    kody is an absolute jerk, meri is a bully, christine looked like a made up clown, poor robin is a pawn in bully meri's revenge.....janelle seems like the only sensible, intelligent one.

    they never speak of their intimate life ...because it is obvious that he is only having sex with skinny robin. he just said it himself that is turned off by chubbiness....look down kody...youre chubby and going bald

  73. I have to say my heart goes out to Janelle. She's the only one who seems like she has any sense. It is beyond me why they are following Robyn's idea of a online store and not following Janelle's idea for a gym. Let's face it, Janelle is the one who always worked and wants to work. So she goes and takes the realtor test....and Robyn get's handed her online store???
    As for Mary demanding a house of equal value....and dropping the "poor me I only have one child and being punished for it by being expected to get a smaller house"..barf barf.

  75. Found this blog a couple weeks ago - love it!!

    All I can see with the Friendship charm is Gollum's hands..."my precious"...reaching out to choke you for buying any of this crap jewelry.

    1. Ah. That's what the hands remind me of. Gollum!!

      Kody's balding head may eventually resemble Gollum as well.

  76. This show has to end soon, it's soooooo bad. What will TLC think of for a new show? MID WIVES? Then they will launch a whole line of birthing clothing? Where does the ridiculousness end America?! WE'VE MADE THEM STARS AS THEY EXPLOITED THEMSELVES!

  77. Call me crazy, but I think the jewelry is a pretty good idea as a short term business selling to their fans. It's obviously not going to make it long term, but neither was their fundamental fitness idea, and that would have required a ton of capital. As long as they only make a limited amt of the jewelry then close down the shop before the show is cancelled, they should do well. I wonder if this means they are figuring out that LIV is an MLM and not a "real" business? Will be interesting to see how long they continue that.

    1. I agree, Mastiff. The jewelry is overpriced and ugly, but maybe someone will buy it, and their investment is minimal compared to a gym. They may not make money, but they won't lose that much either.

  78. HELLO SISTER WIVES!!! Time to put your jewelry back into the closet!!! You're not even wearing any of it in the pictures on your website!!! DOH!!!! Guess rocket scientists are not generally coming out of mormon broods like yours; exemplified by your collective and low talent pool.
    KIDS GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN! Count down EVERY second to 18 or your life is going to end up like your mothers'!!!

  79. I think the reason why the jewelry is so ugly is because they don't welcome outside criticism or suggestions. I'm sure plenty of people would have pointed out about the worm, and the deformed hands, etc if they had asked.

    And far more gently than the internet has done.

    But when Kody sees Robyn as perfect, and everyone outside his "group" as sharks, and himself a budding god, then you end up with your corporate logo being a paw print.

    Tragic flaw is ego.

  80. Has anyone seen even one item owned by any of the sisterwives that you would like to have for your own? I know I haven't.

  81. Do you think the paw print of four is... Actually fingers? That way, if Kody keeps getting more wives, they can switch from paw print, to hand prints?!

  82. Theres no picture of the chain, no mention about the chain. Is it ss too? When your selling things online you have to be clear on what your customers are getting or you can be sued. People wont buy cause they will be wondering about the chain being real or not. Thatsmy thought anyway

  83. This jewelry is so ugly. I have seen better jewelry at local craft shows. Who in the hell would buy this junk. I am trying to find info on the jeweler and why he agreed to make this for them. They claim that it's made in the good old USA. I would not pay a dollar for this crap. Who wants to be seen wearing this. Hell, they don't wear their own stuff. Except for Robyn who was wearing the bracelet. I wonder how many of their idiot fans made a purchase today. This jewelry venture is not going to finance the 4 homes. Kody is still not working. How long is he going to allow TLC to take care of his family. This jewelry should stay in the closet.

    1. My guess is that the person producing this was lured into it by Klody - it may even have been one of their groupies. Kody probably on his high cloud thought that if his wives would do something cheesy, something like those cheesy things his women (and women in general) seem to love - jewelry, that all of their fans would be buying it, regardless of design, style, quality and price. He also must have gotten the person that produces these pieces to believe this, or at least see the opportunity. He probably shared this -yet another- amazing easy money biznez plan with Robsters who obviously jumped in on it and they together decided she would be designing the jewelry. I don't think ever before Kody suggested it to her, did it cross her mind that she could be designing jewelry.
      However, when I saw that show where she gave out her dollar store jewelry to her sister wives I thought she actually also made these pieces herself - apparantly even then she had someone construct these for her.
      Don't even get me started. It is soo trashy. Don't get me wrong, I wear fashion jewelry all the time from stores like Zara, H&M, Aeropostale and what not, but I know what I'm getting plus it actually has some style to it. I also have quite a few genuine silver pieces that are very classy and were surprisingly way way cheaper than whatever those worms and claws are supposed to be.

  84. Holy crap their prices rival Tiffany & Co. (I've spent way too much on charms there) without neither the design, quality, brand, and actual silver. My Tiffany charms have weight to them. These look like the kind I'd spend about $20 for. I'm a huge charm collector, but you have to be insane to think I'd pay that much for these charms. And I really hate that you have to buy them in pairs. Not everyone likes the clauddah style, but might like just the words.

  85. I think it was very cool and they need to cash on this but why not have a professional jewelry designer give them a hand, the stuff is hideous . I am fascinated by the show and how these women put up with the life they live in and what business does this guy have that support them with so much food?

    1. They _could_ have cashed in on their fame but they have done everything wrong. From not following suggested TLC scripts, terrible PR and interactions with fans, arrogance, not taking any advice. Basically it is all Kody, like Christine herself said in one of the more recent episodes: an idea falls or stands on Kody. He just wants free and easy money (without effort) and LOTS of it. Of course they could have designed a professional looking website, having lots of nice quality stuff, doing good PR and actually making some $$ off of it for the long haul but hey... this is Klody we are talking about.

      Did anyone else notice that they apparently used a very old pic? He seems so much slimmer in that pic.

  87. I work in advertising and landed on this site because the Sister Wives Closet site is the laughing stock of the marketing boards today. I am only slightly familiar with the show (it triggers my gag reflex so I don't watch it) but from a marketing perspective the site and their products are...on the surface: Funny but under the surface: Scary.

    Does (or did) Kody Brown work in marketing/advertising? That was mentioned on a few of the marketing boards, not sure if it's true. But, if so, there is zero excuse for the craptastic web site. (or maybe the excuse is that he really sucks at his profession, or maybe Polygamy marketing has much (much) lower standards than every other kind of marketing)

    What many of us in the industry are wondering is why TLC is not partnering with the family on merchandise? TLC would get a cut, but the products and site would be much higher caliber and ultimately garner more sales.

    The very least TLC could have done was donate use of their graphics and web departments as a mercy bone to the SW train wreck they created.

    I refuse to comment on the jewelry except to say this: The friendship charm reminds me of horror movies where a pair of scary, sinewy hands comes out from the dark or fog and grabs a woman and strangles her. So, SW = Strangled Wives?

    1. Welcome!

      I really think TLC is embarrassed by it all. As to Kody's former profession, he was a sign salesman. His current "job" he likes to say is in "marketing". In reality it is if you leave out the first two words - Multi Level MARKETING (LIV International).

  88. I view this on and off and really don't get the polygamist concept. I was curious as to why someone would choose this lifestyle and what the family dynamics were. My impressions: Kody is a modern day Svengali and a bit scary at that. Meri is manipulative and a pathetic role model for the women of today. Christine is an enigma; what on earth does she want from life? Someone to support her? Well she has that in Janelle who seems the only one with half a brain but then again why is she in this? Lastly, there's Robyn, who can't get through an episode without shedding a crocodile tear. She's either a totally submissive person, lacking any form of self esteem or a real shrew planning getting Kody all to herself by, through her tears, fooling all the other wives with her "sincere" wishes that they all get along. (Case in point-keep your friends close, your enemies closer.) This show offers no insight into why any intelligent woman would choose this and why a religion mandates this lifestyle.

  91. That jewelry looks like junk. In some pics, it looks like there's pitting in the metal. That's a sign of poor quality. After all this time, those are the only 'designs' that Robyn could doodle in her notebook. Pitiful. The Browns are delusional if they think they can support seventeen children (and counting), as well as five adults on their jewelry sales. Seriously. Who is going to buy this jewelry? Considering that most married people are in monogamous marriages, who would want 'sister wives' all on their jewelry? I think they stole that paw print design from BLUES CLUES. Why would anyone want to buy these pieces, when QVC sells sterling silver jewelry of much better quality at a fraction of the cost. Plus, QVC has a 30 day money back return policy. These people have been drinking too much of that green stuff.
