The Next Journey

I designed this bracelet for my daughter’s 21st birthday. I chose the climbing ivy for her journey in life, always climbing up; the crown charm for her amazing self poise and dignity; the heart charm for the love her family has for her; the wish charm to remind her to never stop dreaming and wishing; the lotus flower charm to remind her to always stay calm and focused; and the ship charm for a safe trip as she travels to Europe to study abroad. Happy birthday sweetie, we love you and wish you all the best on your next journey in life!

The Stargazer

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a stargazer. I love to look up and see the twinkling stars, the bright planets, the waning moon, and the golden halo of light from the nearby cities. I never had big dreams of becoming an astronaut or anything, but I just knew the night’s sky meant something important to me. After being single for the first 40 years of my life I went to a fortune teller with some of my girlfriends on a whim. She looked to the heavens and told me what would come to be. I would meet a man on the next full moon. I was beyond skeptical, even laughed at her when we left. But sure enough, I met someone 2 weeks later… during a full moon. We’ve been together for almost a year now and he just recently proposed! I designed this bracelet for myself to symbolize my inner stargazer and to remind myself to always believe.

A New Beginning

After my husband passed away, I was prepared to live the rest of my life alone. When I met a man at church that took an interest in me, I was completely unprepared for what would happen. We had a wonderful friendship that blossomed and grew over time into something more… love. After such heartache and wondering if I could ever truly love again, he gave me this bracelet as a birthday gift, and I knew I had found something real. I love the classic gold tones and simple design of this bracelet. I will think of him every time I look at this beautiful bracelet!

Remembering Her

I have a beautiful 3 year old daughter that thought she was getting a little sister. Unfortunately, I had complications in my pregnancy and our new daughter didn’t make it to this world. My daughter was devastated that she wouldn’t have a sister, my husband and I were devastated to lose our baby. Once we were able to heal from the loss, I had matching bracelets made for both me and my daughter. My baby was supposed to be born in September so I chose the birthday blooms sapphire charm and combined it with pretty pink girly charms and the “Life’s Rhythm” charm to symbolize the ups and downs of our lives. While we can’t bring back our lost baby, my daughter and I can always remember her when we’re wearing our bracelets.

The Most Wonderful Time of Year

The holidays are my absolute favorite time of the year. With 3 kids away at college, it’s the only time of the year that I get everyone together back home. I make a BIG deal out of it, and my husband teases me for it. Last year when all the kids were home and the house was decorated to the nines, my hubby gave me this bracelet as a gift. He said even though he teases me, he knows how important it is to me to have our children home for the holidays, and the bracelet is meant to help me celebrate my favorite time of year with the people I love most. Oh, and blue is my favorite color so he did amazing!!

Christmas In The Big Apple

Living in south Florida I don’t get to enjoy many winter activites, but I’ve always wanted to go to New York during the holidays and see the tree in Rockefeller Plaza, go iceskating in Central Park and all the other wonderful holiday activities the city is known for. So last year for my boyfriend and mine’s 3rd anniversary he surprised me with a trip to NY at Christmas!! I got to do everything I’ve always wanted, and then we were standing under the huge tree all lit up at Rockefeller, and he gives me this absolutely stunning bracelet! I love the winter themed charms and the cool blue stones. It’s the perfect reminder of our amazing trip when it gets hot in FL!

My Little Angel Of Hope

My husband and I were due with our first baby in January this year. But our son came early and was born on Christmas day instead. He was premature and had some breathing problems. After being in the hospital for 2 weeks, he was given a clean bill of health and we were able to bring home our beautiful, healthy baby boy. My husband had this bracelet made for me to symbolize our strong little boy and our Christmas miracle.

Home for the Holidays

No one in my family had ever gone to college before, so when I surprised my parents with news about my scholarship they were beyond overwhelmed. The problem was that it was almost 3,000 miles away from home. My family didn’t have a lot of money for travel, so when I packed for college, we knew it would be goodbye for a long time. After 3 years I was finally able to come home for Christmas one year. My parents gave me this amazing bracelet to remind me of our wonderful family time together – and I just love the holiday charms and white beads that remind me of snows – which I hadn’t seen in years!

Fantasy Becomes Reality

My daughter has always been a dreamer. She loved fairytales as a child, pretend playing as queen of some far away land, and even loved fantasy novels as a teen. So it was no surprise to me when she graduated college with an English degree that she planned to become a writer and bring her imagination to life. Upon completing her first book, I gave her this bracelet. The flowers, fairy, star and royal crown symbolize the things she loves to write about, and I added the guardian angel to always watch over her on her journey. I haven’t given it to her yet, but I hope she loves it!

The Irish Wish

My mother and father came to the U.S. from Ireland when I was young for a job opportunity. I missed my family and always wanted to go back to what I considered home. After high school, my parents sent me to college and there my life was forever changed. I met the most amazing man who was studying in the U.S. abroad – he was from Ireland and his family didn’t live far from the rest of my family back home! We finished our studies and after graduation he proposed! We went back to Ireland and had a very grand and very traditional wedding, and on our honeymoon he gave me this bracelet. He actually handpicked all the beads himself. Aside from the obvious green theme, he picked charms that symbolize our love and our families, together forever, and a special wish charm to remind me that wishes can always comes true.
