Arizona Turquoise Statement Bracelet, Arizona Turquoise Chunky Bracelet, Turquoise Bronze Toggle Clasp Bracelet

These are the most beautiful Arizona turquoise stones. I immediately saw a bracelet in them. I strung enough beads interspersed with antiqued brass rondelle beads.

 Tip to tip bracelet measures 9 inches but due to the size of the beads the inner diameter fits smaller--2.25" across in diameter. Let me know if this is too long and you want me to take off a few beads. I have a relatively small wrist and it hangs a bit loose on my.

I even made earrings to accompany this piece. See here. Get your bracelet here!

In love....I recently came into these recycled glass aquamarine blue beads. Reminiscent of old Coke bottles. The glass catches light beautifully.

I made one set for my beautiful sister-in-law and so enjoy seeing her wear it.

The rough texture is amazing. I interspersed the larger beads with smaller lighter blue recycled beads.

Great is Your Faithfulness Brass Necklace, Great is your faithfulness hand stamped necklace, hand stamped hymn necklace

“Great is Thy faithfulness,” O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.
“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!”
 Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—

Thomas Chisholm wrote “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” as a testament to God’s faithfulness through his very ordinary life.  Born in a log cabin in Franklin, Kentucky, Chisholm became a Christian when he was twenty-seven and entered the ministry when he was thirty-six, though poor health forced him to retire after just one year. During the rest of his life, Chisholm spent many years living in New Jersey and working as a life insurance agent.  Still, even with a desk job, he wrote nearly 1,200 poems throughout his life, including several published hymns.

Chisholm explained toward the end of his life, “My income has not been large at any time due to impaired health in the earlier years which has followed me on until now.  Although I must not fail to record here the unfailing faithfulness of a covenant-keeping God and that He has given me many wonderful displays of His providing care, for which I am filled with astonishing gratefulness.”

Make this vintage style brass necklace your declaration and praise. I hand stamped this declaration on a solid brass 1.25" disc which I hand antiqued and distressed. Our promise is made secure by the cross! I added a Tierra Cast antiqued gold cross and sparkling  Swarovski crystal to complete the theme. Chain is 30 inches antiqued brass and will wear very well. Choose your preferred crystal color below.

Platinum Baroque Pearl Earrings in Oxidized Silver, Messy Wire Wrap, Oxidized Sterling Platinum Coin Pearl Earrings

Delightful in a baroque artisan style. I found these platinum bronzish baroque pearls at my local dealer. After sorting through an entire strand, I paired up coordinating sizes and shapes to bring you fabulous earrings. These are truly rustic with the smoothest side forward. I wire wrapped in hand oxidized sterling silver filled wire in a "messy" style,  then hung from oxidized sterling silver leverback wires. Ear pair is slightly different but will look very similar to the pairs depicted. Earrings hang about 1 inch from the bottom of the wires. With the french hooks, they fall 1.5" all together.

All coin pearls have one side that is naturally smoother than the other. I match up my pearls with the smoothest side forward in pairs which complement each other with the natural baroque markings. Pearls are 15mm in diameter.

Make a statement in a rustic artisan manner.
