Sharing is more fun!

Just like a pizza, an ice cream cone or a movie....wearing jewelry is even more fun when you share with a friend!  Aside from the usual..."may I borrow this green necklace of yours, it goes perfect with my new sundress"....there are other unique ways to share with a special friend or family member.

Recently I designed a custom order for a friend and her Best Bud.  Long time friends, they were getting together to celebrate the anniversary of their friendship...it had been a "few" years!  I created pieces based on the wishes of the one friend...special lettering, colours and materials...for her to gift her friend and herself.  Unique pieces they will both treasure.

My Baby Love Bracelets are very popular for newborns and I love being able to create special Mom and Babe Sets.  Is there a bond any stronger?!  Often made in birthstone colours of the baby or traditional pinks or blues....these sets become a treasured keepsake for both mom and babe!

Another favourite set of mine to create...is matching bracelets for friends and/or family who share a passion for a cause.  Breast Cancer, Diabetes, Childhood Cancer.....every cause is so important and any awareness that is brought forward to these causes is something special to share!

And, of course, there is the Custom Work I so love to do.  In this case, you may not be sharing with a friend or family member....however, you will share with me your wishes for what you'd love to have me make for you....and together we design it.  Sometimes it's just a special creation you'd like, and sometimes it is pieces you'd like to share with family and friends.  These become such treasured pieces to the customer...and I usually like to name the piece (yes, all my designs have a name) after the loved one who inspired the piece, or the customer themselves!

 These beautiful necklaces came about thru a joint effort with a customer...she showed me what she'd like and I made it happen!  As a special tribute to her, her family and her input...I named these after her mom and sister....Annie and Jennifer.

So the next time you are thinking about ordering yourself a little bling...consider sharing your fun!
