Holiday Shopping: Wishes and Gift Ideas

Thanksgiving is just around the corner as is our favorite gift giving time of year!  I've put quite a few new items up in the store to help you shop for that perfect and unique, wire wrapped jewelry gift this year.

If you're like me, you'd rather avoid the overcrowded stores, late night camping at department store doors and the possibility of a stampede when the opening hour comes.  I try to shop early in the year to avoid the crowds, but certainly, there's always the last minute shopping that I never seem to escape.

This is the beauty of online shopping!  There's still plenty of time to find the perfect gift for a special friend or loved one and plenty of time to have it shipped and wrapped for the holiday!

What better way to let someone know they're unique and special, than by giving them a one of a kind, handmade item.  Here are a few ideas from my Etsy jewelry store...

I created this gorgeous gemstone pendant out of sturdy 18 and 20 gauge solid copper wires, weaved and swirled around a AAA quality, plum colored Quartz crystal and accented with Peridot and Spinel beads. It's a sparkler without too much 'bling' . The wires have been oxidized, hand polished and sealed to preserve the beautiful and popular, antique copper finish.  It comes with an 18 inch solid copper chain and will be ready to wear upon arrival!

This elegant and gorgeous pendant necklace is a truly unique piece of wire jewelry in that it's REVERSIBLE. This Labradorite stone is magnificent in color, cut and quality, smoothly polished and beautiful on both sides... so obviously, I had to create this pendant in such a way as to show both sides! An extra treat as it's really two pendants, in one!

This unique and gorgeous wire wrapped Bonsai, Tree of Life pendant, has a canopy of beautiful, deep green Peridot chips and rondelles which cover a spiraling copper vortex of energy!  The tree of life symbol crosses all cultures and stems back to our ancient ancestors. The sprouting seed, growing into a strong trunk and then branching off to produce 'fruit', represents the cycle of life and abundant possibilities. It represents wisdom, strength, prosperity, protection, beauty and connection to our Earth.

A couple of new Labradorite and Copper Wire Wrapped Pendants in my Etsy Store!

I just wanted to share my latest two new pendants!  These gorgeous Labradorite stones are highly polished and flash with gorgeous colors of electric blue, lavender and gold tones.  Both of these are wrapped in solid copper wires which have been oxidized, hand polished and sealed to preserve the gorgeous antique finish.
They can be purchased in my Etsy jewelry store, along with many other wonderful and one of a kind wire wrapped jewelry!

I hope you're ready to shop for the holidays!

A fun legend about Labradorite....

According to Eskimo legend, the northern lights were once captured into the rocks and an Eskimo warrior who found them, released them into the sky with the mighty blow of a spear. Some of the lights however, remained in the stones and have come to us now in this form of the labradorite.

Enjoy the eye candy :))



Arm Chair Shopping with Family and Friends, Avoiding Black Friday Madness!

The Holidays are quickly approaching. Before you spend precious time and gas running from store to store and fighting the crowds only to find the same selection of gift ideas everywhere you go why not spend at least a few moments visiting

Etsy is an online marketplace made up of over 850,000 independently owned and operated shops that create and sell their own handmade jewelry, clothing, housewares and personal care items as well as unusual Vintage and Antique items.

By shopping with one of these independently owned artist shops from the comfort of your home you will not only find unique gift ideas but you will be helping a small business person this season.

What could be easier. Unless you take a few moments to look you will never know if the perfect gifts for the special people in your life could be found without ever leaving the house.

New Handmade Wire Wrap Jewelry!

Another post to share my newest wire wrapped jewelry!  I hope you find inspiration in the items and I hope they inspire you to visit my Etsy jewelry store!  :))

I've also just opened up a Facebook store so if you don't care to create an Etsy account to make a purchase, I hope you'll consider to visit my Facebook store and shop there.  

I've fallen in love with designing my Bonsai version of the Tree of Life pendants!  I created these in solid copper wires which have been lightly oxidized.  In some of the pendants, I've attached an abundant canopy of Peridot, Citrine and Amethyst beads, but thought I'd also try something new too... so I made two of them with wire canopies and used rough Aqua Marine crystals for the base.  I hope you enjoy the eye candy and please let me know what you think of them!  :))  Many hugs.
