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 great gifts for friends and family, plus it's quite affordable at only $20.00 each.  

I'm also looking for sterling silver charms that can be added to the necklaces, so keep checking back at my shop!

Right now I have a coupon code for 25% off anything at my shop, Fanciful Wish.  The code expires at the end of May, so don't forget to use it!  The code is MAY2014.

Happy Shopping!

DIY Dream Catcher Bracelet

I had my first Dream Catcher when I was a sophomore in high school.  We bought it on a family trip that landed us briefly in Sedona, Arizona.  It was maroon suede with feathers and it hung on my bed post so I'd have good dreams at night.  I loved that thing.  I've been seeing dream catcher bracelets around on the internet so I wanted to make one for myself.  I found some tutorials but thought I'd add to the list and make my own.

Supplies:
* embroidery floss thread or suede lace
* metal ring (key chain rings work well)
* thinner string like s-lon cord, or 4 ply Irish waxed linen, or even dental floss
* small beads
* tape (optional)
* glue like hypo cement (something that dries clear)

Choose your colors and start by taking just a little bit of tape and taping down one end of the thread to the ring.  Start wrapping your ring with the thread.


When you are done wrapping, tie a knot so that your thread doesn't unravel.  Put a dab of glue to secure the knot.
Take your Irish w…

Hand Stamped Metal Jewelry

One of FancifulWish's best sellers (when I have the time to make them) are my hand stamped metal jewelry.  I like the act of pounding a metal stamp into a piece of metal.  Maybe it's stress relief?  I bought my first kit from Beaducation.  And yes I started off with a kit because I didn't know what went into metal stamped jewelry.  I would have taken a class from my local jewelry store but I was at home with a newborn with no babysitter, so learning on my own was the way to go.

Now I will warn you - making hand stamped jewelry is NOT cheap.  You can get away with using a hammer you have at home to pound your letters into your metal but the letters themselves are pricey.  I've only managed to collect 5 different types of letters, 3 of them the same font in different size with numbers included. The other a different font in lower and upper case sizes.  And then there are punctation stamps and design stamps....not cheap.




 Alphabet set stamps can run you from $30-$60.  In…

Pineapple Love

I am an island girl, born and raised in Hawaii on the island of Oahu.  And pineapple used to be big business here in Hawaii.  My immigrant family all worked for Dole Plantation back in the day- planting, growing and harvesting pineapple.  Back in the 1980's when I was a child, there used to be this huge pineapple water tower in Honolulu at the Dole Cannery.  They took that pineapple water tower down and the Dole Cannery building is now a movie theater!  My how times have changed.  But our love for pineapples here never ends.

Lately I've been seeing a quote everywhere about pineapples:

"Be like a pineapple, stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside."

So this is me paying homage to a fun quote.  Let's all be Pineapples!  Or at least enjoy them.
