The Earjeans 365 Collection: #270

(My favorite group from The Sing Off, Afro Blue)

Our jewelry piece is dedicated to any person who has a dream and wants to pursue it but may not quite know how. I was inspired to create this bracelet as a constant reminder that we must follow our dreams in full confidence that they will become reality if we simply refuse to give up. I truly believe that one should do work they love and love the work they do. To accept anything less than that is settling for less than what we deserve.

Jewelry piece #270 "Follow your Dream"

Our materials:
pink rose quartz beads
stretch jewelry cord
crimp cover

Design time for this lovely piece is 20 minutes. I treated the jewelry charm with a single coat of clear nail polish for an extra shine.

And here's our new bracelet

Happy Saturday!

The Earjeans 365 Collection: #272

Today's jewelry inspiration comes from a phone call from one of my close friends. She asked if I could make a few pieces in honor of National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month and I was more than happy to do so.

When I began to do a search on more information about this disease, I learned that actor, Patrick Swayze, died from this several years ago.

There are several websites you can visit to learn more about this disease, prevention, treatment, and ways you can help find a cure. You can begin your search by clicking here

#272 Purple Passion necklace

our materials for today are:

jewelry chain
amethyst bead chips
purple glass beads
faux leather-purple

Design time for this pretty necklace is about 2 hours. I did manage to make a simple pair of matching earrings. (what's a necklace without matching earrings? :)

Let's be good to our bodies and each other. Get active, eat healthy, and help others do the same.

Have a great day,

The Earjeans 365 Collection: #274

Everyone wants to feel special. Whether we like to admit it or not, feeling special is a part of our DNA - yes even men! What better way to feel special then to have someone make something especially for you or unique to you in some way?

So jewelry piece #274 is called "Personalize Me"

Our materials
Black seed beads
jewelry wire
jewelry charm

I used black beads as this is easy to match with anything and then the charm can be whatever letter you desire. It takes about 30 minutes to create this 3 string necklace and I'm very happy with the results.
