Joy, Respect, and Harmony

Being 3 words I try to live by myself, I just fell in love with this bracelet by JewelryByJanzia. The clasp, charms, and chain are all made with silver plated affirmation. Also if you spend $50 or more in her Artfire Studio she offers free shipping(however if you spend under $50 her shipping prices are very, very reasonable)!!! A few words from Janzia's Bio, I first became interested in making jewelry when I commented on liking a pair of my neighbors earrings and she told me that her daughter had made them. I was amazed by the idea that you could make your own earrings and a little seed was planted. The next time I went to my local library I checked out every book I could on jewelry making. I read everything I could on the subject but wasn't really spurred to action until I went to a jewelry party (not the handcrafted kind but a company sponsored one). I loved everything I saw but after reading so much about it I kept thinking to myself I could make that. I figured by this point it was time to stop thinking about it and start doing something. I went home and scoured all my books once again and then made my first piece which I gave to my mom for her birthday. After that there was no stopping me. Run by her studio and pick you up a lovely bracelet today, or grab a last minute Mother's Day gift!
