{NEW} layering bangles

 

news bangles2

Friends, I’m super excited about our brand new bangles!

One of the things that I love most is that we hand make each and every bangle in our studio! No bangle is perfect and each one will be slightly different — I just love handmade jewelry!

Our new layering  bangles are handmade in sterling silver or gold-filled. Wear just one or layer a few, add an a-la-carte handstamped initial or name charm to customize them if you would like!

We have 4 designs to mix and match: simple silver, simple gold, twisted rope (silver) and beaded (silver).

Water of Life Campaign with Compassion International

We are teaming up with Compassion International and their “Water of Life” campaign— compassion water drop keychain web Every day over 4,000 children are dying of water-related diseases such as cholera and typhoid that are easily preventable. Many more are suffering sickness, diarrhea and acute stomach pains – illnesses that stop children going to school and growing up into healthy adults.

With The Compassion Water of Life Campaign, you are not only giving safe drinking water, you are protecting a child from life-threatening diseases and allowing that child to go to school, to dream and reach their full potential.

compassion keychain back web

We created a handstamped keychain and necklace just for this cause — 50% of the proceeds from these “water drop” pieces will be donated to Compassion for their “Water of Life” campaign that helps to provide safe water for life (over 1 million gallons) for a child and their family in developing countries.

Everytime you look at your keychain or wear your necklace you will remember how you were able to help children in other countries have clean, fresh water by purchasing it!

NEW “love inspired” pieces…

news 2

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, our “new” page is full of new pieces that were inspired by LOVE for you and your Valentine! Here are a few of my favorites:

Our “coordinates of my heart” bracelet is so special — we handstamp the coordinates of the place that’s closest to your heart (could be where you were proposed to, where you baby was born, where your soldier is serving, or maybe you are away at college and your heart is at home)! Finished on a sterling chain with a bronze heart.

Our “inspired by love” necklace is handmade and stamped in fine silver, and was inspired by a favorite scripture verse, 1 COR 16:14 : “let all that you do be done with love”…

Our “connected hearts” necklace has 2 handmade hearts permanently connected and hung on a sterling silver chain. “Whether we are close together or far away, our hearts are always connected”.

Today and tomorrow save 20% off our entire site (including our new pieces) with code “LOVEU20“!

After a long weekend of jewelry making and every Christmas present has been handstamped, assembled and shipped, we are able to take a night off and celebrate with our staff Christmas party!

christmas staff party 2015 blog

We enjoyed a dinner, and then played the “white elephant” game (where they can steal from each other) — Ryan and I like to provide the gifts (enough so every staff member gets to win and leave with something). Tessa helped me shop and wrap all of the gifts this year, she was a trooper!

This year we had our staff Christmas party at 5 Oaks Lodge, it was so beautiful and cozy.

We had a fun night to relax, laugh and unwind — we have such an amazing team!

Christmas DIY

BLOG-CHRISTMASDIY-7Every once in a while we take a break from the world of handstamped jewelry to have a little DIY Christmas fun!BLOG-CHRISTMASDIY-1If you join us then here’s what you’ll  need:

*Scissors                                                                                                                         *Glue gun and glue sticks                                                                                       *Green Felt or whatever color makes your heart happy!                               *Red ribbon or a bow                                                                                           *Wreath form                                                                                                                 *A good Christmas movie and some hot chocolate                                (Optional but highly recommended!)

(We got all of our materials from Michael’s)

BLOG-CHRISTMASDIY-2The first step is to cut all of your felt into little leaf shapes.

They don’t need to be perfect just have fun with them.                               (You can also fold over the felt when cutting your leaves to speed up the process)

BLOG-CHRISTMASDIY-5We decided to go ahead and take some of our left over felt and cover our frame with it so it has a nice base and no wire would be peaking through

Then just start glueing!

BLOG-CHRISTMASDIY-4

You want to place your glue dot at the base of your leaf so you can continue the leaves and keep tucking them under the last one so it will be full.

BLOG-CHRISTMASDIY-6Just keep the leaves going the same direction all the way around until they meet again so its seamless.

Then you are ready to add your bow!
