Ornate Jewelry Creations and an Intro to My Daughter's Rosary Designs

It was a very productive weekend for me in the jewelry-making department.  It's no secret that I unwind from the stress of the work week by creating.  It's proven to be good for the soul and it keeps me out of trouble, too. :)

This weekend, I created the following one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces and want to share them with you:


Bronze and Blue Crystal Virgin Mary Statement Necklace

Bronze and Blue Crystal Virgin Mary Necklace (Pendant Detail)

Red Filigree and Crystal Virgin Mary Necklace

Hand-decorated bronze Virgin Mary icon bracelet



All items are currently for sale in my EBay and Etsy stores.  By the way, if you like the look of the bracelet, stay tuned for details on how to decorate your own metal components for your jewelry projects.  I'll be sharing a tutorial on this very subject on my blog later in the week.

While I'm on the subject of ornate designs, I want to take a minute to introduce you to my daughter, Brianna's rosary designs.  Brianna started making corded rosaries and rosary bracelets while she was still in high school.  



She also became enamored with making automobile and full size crystal and gemstone rosaries.  These have proven to be pretty popular among her peers. She recently posted some of her latest creations on her Facebook page and sold every single one of them.  Is that awesome, or what?

She's decided to take her rosary making to a whole new level - she has begun selling them in her Etsy store, the Saint Philomena Store.  She also accepts custom orders, so if you'd like a sparkly, well-made rosary of your own, please don't hesitate to contact Brianna.  I know you won't be disappointed. :)
