Still Christmas shopping?
I got this idea over this past weekend that some of you may still be looking for that perfect gift for the mom/sister/friend in your life. Maybe you're scrambling to find that extra-special custom gift that only she can use. Well, allow me to scramble with you. Let's crack those eggs and make an omelette.
I make Mommy Bracelets. I actually hold a BFA in Metal Design but this is all I can do right now. I've been making these bracelets mostly for friends and family for a few years now, but occasionally I get asked to make one for a gift.
I've used children's names with their matching birthstones....
I've used nicknames like Grandma, Mawmaw and Nanny with all of their grandkids' birthstones...
And I've also made bracelets for little girls. I have a picture of one I made for Monkey but the focus is all out of whack. Speaking of bad pictures, please don't let the quality of my pictures sway your opinion on my bracelets. I still haven't figured out how to take good shots of these things.
They are all made with sterling silver clasps and beads and the birthstone beads are Swarovski crystal.
If you are interested in one of these custom bracelets, please let me know in the comments section or by sending me a direct email and we can talk about what you have in mind. Prices generally run as such:
Single strand: $35
Double strand: $50
Triple strand: $65
I can keep adding strands if you like but at some point people may start comparing you to Mr. T, so if you have more than three children/grandchildren you want on a bracelet, think about ways to make it one or two strands. If you need ideas or suggestions, I'm happy to help.
Shipping is a flat $5 and it'll be sent priority mail. Oh, and since we only have about 22 days left, I can't take orders after December 10th so that I'll have time to get the beads, make the bracelet and get it back in the mail to you before Christmas.
Hungry for an omelette yet?
