Personalized Book Page Wreath

 I'm really excited to offer these book page initial wreath in my shop.  I just made one of these for my home and am planning to make more for a few members of my family.

And even though I generally sell jewelry in my shop, I discussed it with my husband, and he agreed that it would be a great idea to offer these as a custom, made to order, item in my shop.

The base of the wreath is an embroidery hoop, covered in fabric and then covered in book pages.

It's then adroend with hand folded book page fans. (I can also replace some of the fans with round pinwheels, if you like those.)  And each fan is topped with a shiny black button for added color and definition.   In the center, each wreath will feature a black initial, surrounded by a field of white (could also be surrounded by a book page, if you like that better) and then surrounded by a field of black felt. 

The initial in this featured wreath is in Caesar font, but for your custom order, I'll be happy to do the initial in the font of your choice.  And finally a black ribbon is included for easy hanging.

The wreath pictured here is 14 inches in diameter (perfect for any door or wall).  I can also create the wreath using a smaller hoop or a larger hoop.  If you'd like a different size, you can email me, and I'll give a price quote for the wreath and the shipping.

Tree Pendant with Chain

If you like earthy tones, you'll love this cute Tree pendant.  The tree is brown, and it has a few fallen leaves, and beside the tree is a small mushroom, and it's set against a background of green grass and a blue sky.  A 24 inch ball chain with lobster class is included with this listing.

Western Style Charm Bracelet

I first created a Western Style bracelet last year as a Christmas present for a friend, and I decided to make another for the shop.

The charms are pewter, and they include a cowboy hat, arrowhead, horse, Indian head, a longhorn cow, and a boot.  And the beads are clear Czech glass and silver.  This bracelet also features an adjustable chain and lobster clasp. 

Measurements and more details are posted in my shop.  If you'd like a charm bracelet featuring a particular theme send me an email, and we can talk about a special listing.

Very Blue Earrings

 I absolutely love the color blue!  For this pair of earrings, I used blue and cobalt blue beads.  The colors blend very well together, while at the same time, providing a slight contrast with one another.

And like my other Czech glass creations, they sparkle and shine!

Please check out this shop listing, which includes a new lower shipping rate!

And don't foget that this month's special is a free bracelet with any purchase!

Free Bracelets!

 I have a huge supply of beaded bracelets.  These are some of the first pieces of jewelry that I made, and since I was just practicing and experimenting, most of these are made with plastic beads and metal spacers.  

I would keep them all for myself, but I have a ton of bracelets, and I just don't really need all of them!  In the future I may list some of these in my shop, perhaps in lots of 3 to 5, but for right now I've decided to try and give some of these babies away!
This month if you buy any item in my shop, I'll throw in a free stretch cord bracelet! Colors and designs vary.  If you make a purchase, I'll try to give you a bracelet that's similar in color to the item you purchase, or I'll ask you for a color preference.  So the giveaway will not be totally random; you will get some choice!

These are one size fits most, varying in size from about seven to eight and half inches, and they would be great for kids or adults.

 The pictures in this post are just a few of the ones I have.  And I'll try to post some others in a few days.

Thanks so much for looking! Please visit my shop: http://jhrivers.etsy.com/

I'll be adding lots of items for the holidays soon and am in the process of coming up with some holiday packaging.
