Hand Stamped Initial Necklace

Last year I made some hand stamped sterling silver necklaces and I gave them to a few friends.  I didn't have many pieces on hand but I've ordered some pieces because I decided to start selling them at my shop.  It's been in the back of my mind and now that I've gotten more font stamps, I feel like I can offer more of a variety in my shop.

I have heart shaped pendants:



 And I have disc sequins:


I wore my E pendant around today, it's my son's initial and birthstone month, August.  It's light weight and I barely knew it was on me until my son made a grab for it!

Everything on the necklace is sterling silver except the silver plating around the round crystal and the wire for the bicone crystal drop.  The birthstone crystals are all swarovski and they really add a pop to the pendant.  It's so cute.  I want to buy more crystal colors other than what I have for the birthstones because why not?  The crystals are gorgeous!  I really love these!  They make grea…

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!  I just got done filling plastic eggs with treats for a little easter egg hunt at my house tomorrow for my son and my 2 nephews.  It should be fun, though I feel like I don't have enough eggs (how many eggs do 3 boys needs anyway?!).

May is coming which means, Mother's Day, Graduation and summer break for some lucky kids.  Are we really near summer already?  And does that mean I have to start planning my child's 2nd birthday party right now?  Wow...where does the time go?

Speaking of time, I finally found some - and I made some new pieces for my store.  I also relisted some oldies but goodies that was hiding in my jewelry stash.  I threw them all into a container when the move happened, so I found them once again!  I've majorly discounted the prices on them so please, check it out!  Most of them are bead bracelets.  Here are a few that you can get at my store:





I was really into making stretch bracelets at one time and still have some unused bead…

Metal and Leather

I absolutely love making silk ribbon wrap bracelets.  I am obsessed about looking for different ribbon colors that I love and hope as well, that my customers will love (they do, they do!).  I started making them when someone asked me if I could make a bracelet with the word Namaste.  So I credit my yoga lovers for opening that door to me.

I've been dying to start up using leather for my metal pieces and I'm happy to say I finally made one.


And I can't say it was as easy as it looks to make.  I could buy precut leather bracelets with the snaps already attached but I found a vendor who makes these awesome tooled leather.  And they use different colors too...of course they sold some without the snaps (they sell a few with them, but I wanted to try my hand with putting the snaps, etc...) and I ordered a few test pieces.  I love them...


Check out the detail!  And the color!  This one is black and silver but I got some that are red and black, white and aqua, it's so ME.  I&#…

April Sale

What?  I haven't posted since January?!  Well folks, lots have been going on.  I moved, for hopefully the last time in my life.  The house is beautiful, the neighborhood is what we wanted and all we need to do is put the finishing touches and pack away some boxes.

I have been working on a few orders some custom and some not.  I did have a large order of ribbon wrap bracelets so that took some time to do.  Hard to do with an energetic 18 month old running circles around me, but it was done!  Yippee!

Here are some new bracelets I have up at the shop!





You can get all of these at Fanciful Wish Jewelry! Plus I have a 10% off coupon code for use at the store.  The code is EASTER2014.  Use it at check out!
I will be introducing leather bracelets with hand stamped metal VERY soon.  Just waiting for some supplies but in the meanwhile I am trying to practicing using rivets and attaching snaps.  But I'm very excited about this new item I'm adding.  I love the wrap bracelets, but I&#…
