Handmade Guardian Angel Necklaces and Charms

Handmade Guardian Angel Necklaces and Charms
Everyone could use a guardian angel for a little extra protection looking over them. This handmade angel is created with a pretty ruffled skirt and golden apron, golden wings and a halo to match.

This little guardian angel charm comes in a variety of colors too. From blue to red, white and yellow as well as pink and green. They can even be made in silver instead of gold.

I've designed them as both
guardian angel earrings or guardian angel necklaces and also as decorative little charms that can be attached to a cell phone, purse charm, key ring or even set to dangle from the rear view mirror of a car.

Dancing Leaves Handmade Duster Earrings

Dancing Leaves Handmade Duster Earrings
I love incorporating a touch of vintage into my creations. When you shop for vintage supplies, you find a lot of unusual pieces and bits, sometimes with beautiful craftsmanship that is lacking in commercial supplies today.

These handmade duster earrings are designed with inky leaves that dance merrily at the ends and vintage golden links just above them. Little lampwork beads with tiny rosebuds caught inside and a touch of pink then both accent and finish off the set of dancing leaf dangle earrings.

Hot Pink and Dark Wood Fiber Wrapped Bangle

Wood Bangle Bracelet Wrapped in Hot Pink Fibers
Bangle bracelets are a fun way to dress up an outfit and they come in a variety of different styles as well. They come in metal, wood, plastic and can be thin or thick, smooth or textured. There's a long list of ideas and creativity that can be put into making them, let alone skill.

Carefully shaped by hand and turned with care for a smooth, seamless wooden loop, this handmade wooden bangle bracelet was sanded smooth then stained a rich, dark walnut color. The piece was then wrapped in silky nylon, creating a splash of bright color against the dark wood.

Seasons Change Honey Jade Gemstone Necklace

Gemstone Necklace in Jade and Bronze
One of my favorite creations

This handmade gemstone necklace is designed as a celebration of the seasons and from an undying love for nature. The length is designed from small honey jade gemstones in a rosary style, each section of these creamy stones is separated by rainbow jade rounds in a slightly larger size. All of the accents are in bronze tones, with an art nouveau center and a bronze tree charm dangling at the tip.

This jade and bronze necklace is both earthy and elegant from start to finish and is sure to be a beloved piece in any nature lover's collection of jewelry.
