Looking for Ideas and Inspiration for Teacher Appreciation Gifts or other unique gifts for special people? I just received some jewelry making pendants and findings from Green Girl Studios and I was overcome with ideas for uses of this special little pendant. I am sharing my thoughts since they might be just the right inspiration for someone.
Making a key chain, bookmark, necklace or other beaded jewelry with this You Are Special Pendant would be great for any of the following:
Special Education Teachers
Regular Education Teacher Appreciation Gift
Parents of Children with Special Needs
Medallion for a Special Needs Child
Unique Gift for people who suffer from depression
Award Medal for participation in a special function
Gifts for Best Friends
These are just a few ideas for the creation of something really meaningful. I raised children with ADHD (see my previous blog post) and met some very dedicated Special Education Teachers that this little pendant would have been perfect for making a unique gift.
I just can’t pass up posting this Etsy Treasury that goes straight to my heart and the heart of UFO Researchers, Alien Conspiracy theorists and “Twilight Zone” Fans. This collection comes from “The Outer Limits” of Etsy and holds a place of honor on my blog.

The new year is upon us and looking ahead to January Birthstone beading projects, I found some some great picks to include in jewelry designs. The birthstone for January is Garnet and is frequently used in gifts for people born in this month. While Garnet can come in many colors, the deep red Garnet is most commonly used for the stone of those born in January.
Below are a few cool beads, pendants and findings to inspire and enhance beading projects:

Years ago I was at an Intergalactic Bead Show and came upon a vendor selling Pyramid shape stones and crystals. I was smitten! I have always been fascinated with the Pyramids of Egypt and there was just something “necessary” about having one made of stone. I bought a small Lapis Lazuli pyramid (featured above) which sits on my desk, and I recently discovered I could collect more of these Pyramid stones at Healing Crystals.
Below are the choices at the top of my list! Click the picture to learn more about each stone.
Golden Tiger Eye Pyramid – for its ability to attract spiritual energy yet still keep you grounded. This polished stone is just gorgeous.
Amethyst Pyramid – Purple is one of my favorite colors and the amethyst is a soothing, powerful and protective stone.
Clear Quartz Crystal Pyramid – to help energize and amplify my creativity.
