Excitement is building for our participation next weekend, in association with The Artisan Group®, in an invitation-only luxury celebrity gift lounge hosted by GBK Productions.
This is being held at an exclusive location in Beverly Hills, California, in honor of The 2014 Primetime Emmy AwardsNominees and Presenters.
Our Chakra Balancing Pendant is made with gemstones especially for this event, and will be included in the swag bags that are given to all attending Celebrities. It is such an honor to be among these talented Artisans and represented at this event being held August 22-23, 2014.
This handmade necklace is also available as a special order on our website:
Take a look at the other artisan made gifts that will also be included in this Gift Bag by clicking on the interactive digital Gift Guide below. There are so many unique and wonderful items made by talented artisans.
Do you send Thank You notes for gifts? Does anyone do that anymore? Just when I thought that tradition was dead, two handwritten thank you notes from celebrities were sent to The Artisan Group®, thanking us for the gifts we sent.
These lovely notes thanked everyone for the handmade gifts that we included in the Mother’s Day Gift Bag for 2014.
Each note card expressed gratitude for our personal gifts to them and by sitting down to write thank you notes it showed their sincere appreciation.
When I was growing up writing, sending a Thank You Note through the mail was very important. In the past 40 years that tradition has seemed to dwindle now that you can easily pick up a phone and call, text or email your thanks.
I was glad to see that this time-honored social etiquette is still alive and not entirely forgotten!! Do you send Thank You Notes?
Leave a comment about how you say Thank You for gifts.

Rose Quartz Bracelets for Celebrity Moms
I decided to participate in this collaborative gift bag to Hollywood Mothers so that I would have experience in a large production, working my way up to other events with The Artisan Group® that require more products.
I was inspired to make this bracelet by this little charm that I found and decided to combine that with Rose Quartz because of its loving and nurturing qualities.
Rose Quartz, also known as the Love Stone, is a crystal of unconditional love, It enhances loving qualities such as compassion, tenderness, comforting, nurturing, etc.
I made a “prototype” and sent a photograph off to the organizers for approval, once it was approved I did the math and then ordered all of the beading supplies I would need to complete these 30 bracelets.
I used an assembly process similar to the one I use when making Rosaries, which worked really well and within a few days I was done! OK, well maybe it took a week.
The hardest thing to do was get a really good photo for the Gift Guide, I must have taken like 100 shots to get the color of the stones just right!
I decided to create a little “Happy Mother’s Day” note card where I could write a little personal note to each Mom. On the other side I wrote a short description of the properties of Rose Quartz along with Care & Cleaning for the bracelet.
As I wrote out each card I looked up their names on IMDB and was surprised and tickled to know that a famous movie star might actually hold a piece of jewelry that I made. If I am lucky they might even contact me or look at other items I have available!
Boxing & shipping
I picked my ship date and made sure to assemble each individual gift package, along with the note cards, business card, etc by that date. T
hen “boom” it was done! Time to seal the box and off to FedEx for the journey across country to California!
There are times in life when you just need a little Romance. A romantic beaded jewelry necklace, a candlelight dinner for two or a crazy blind date with a handsome prince disguised as a newspaper reporter, like Clark Kent, right? If I were a bachelorette I would be thinking and dreaming of these things.
I had a great opportunity through The Artisan Group® to submit a piece of jewelry to the wardrobe stylist of the ABC “Bachelorette” TV show for consideration of use in future Bachelorette episodes.
This was not a show that I had ever seen, so I spent an afternoon watching different episodes that I found on You Tube. It was very entertaining, with a variety of beautiful jewelry and the use of many different styles.
Romantic Beaded Jewelry Necklace
This romantic beaded jewelry necklace was submitted for consideration, and made using a large and unique sterling silver bead that I acquired from India some years back.
I combined this unique bead with small Swarovski crystal bead accents to form a romantic teardrop pendant. I then attached it to a delicate sterling silver chain that was also adorned with crystal.
