love is in the air

We're just days away from February, and a mere two weeks away from Valentine's Day. Get your sweetheart something unique and handmade this year! There are tons of personalized gifts in my shop. I bet she'd adore this hand stamped LOVE necklace! You could add her birthstone and make it really special. Does she speak another language? Spanish, French, Italian...? Dazzle her with a hand stamped "I love you" necklace in the language of your choice. There are many initial, name, and birthstone necklaces in my shop as well. Check it out and find something unique that she'll always cherish.

new hand stamped necklaces

Today I introduce the first necklace in my new line of hand stamped jewelry. Until now all of my hand stamped pieces have been sterling silver. I will be adding new copper pieces to my shop over the next couple weeks. The first piece introduced is the copper name necklace. It features one 1/2 inch round copper disc hand stamped with the name (or word) of your choice. Also included is a beautiful Italian made sterling silver chain. This piece is a great gift because it can be customized for any recipient and any occasion.

mini flower dangle earrings

These little earrings are too cute! I love the detailed silver flower. These are perfect with any outfit...a great gift for any age. They are just over one inch long, including the hook. The hooks are fabulously shaped surgical steel.

colorful coasters

This is the time of year when we could all use a little color. I used one of my favorite paper designs to create these colorful coasters. They're made from 4 x 4 white tiles. Not only do they have the fabulous design on top, but they have a great layer of brown felt underneath. This means you don't have to worry about moisture or scratches on your coffee table. The coasters are completed with multiple layers of diamond glaze, making them waterproof. Recently I have completed many custom orders for coasters. It's a great gift idea because you can customize them to match any home's decor. Just let me know what I can create for you.

Ode to Shakespeare

You've gotta love some of old William's most famous lines. This is one of my favorites, "to thine own self be true". Seriously, if you're not true to yourself then to whom can you be? I decided to engrave these words onto a 1" sterling silver pendant. I love how it turned out. This pendant is the largest available in my sterling silver line. It comes with an Italian made sterling silver ball chain. If your heart so desires you can also add a Swarovski birthstone crystal or some other goodie.

This cutie is available at my shop.

If you're a fan of another Shakespeare quote (or any other quote, for that matter) just let me know. I can create a custom piece just for you!
