I am excited to announce that Rose Quartz stones made into bracelets for 25 Celebrity Moms and 5 members of the Press are on the way to be included with other handmade gifts in The Artisan Group® Mother’s Day Gift Bag.
This was an achievement that I can say was a great experience, and I can only hope that these wonderful Mom’s will love wearing this gift that came from my hands and my heart.
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!
