Hope Angel Bracelets-Inspiration You Wear

Me & You, #Handstamped, #Beaded #Bracelet

by Ellen DuBois on 02/12/17



What a great feeling to have finished this bracelet. I'm now hand stamping my jewelry and it's exciting! Although it takes more time, it's worth it. I look forward to coming up with new "thoughts on charms" and adding them to my Hope Angel Bracelet collection!

This pretty, hand stamped, beaded bracelet says so many things. Me and you. We go back a long way. We've shared ups and downs, highs and lows, smiles and tears. Me and you. Whether you are a couple, best friends, sisters, etc., me and you have a history, a love and a bond that transcends time. Me and you. We are like angels to each other. Always me & you. I hand stamped this piece and made this bracelet using black onyx and clear Swarovski crystal. This would make a wonderful gift for anyone and a great addition to your own jewelry! The black and clear beads match anything, which is a plus. There is also an angel wing charm accompanying the "Me & You" charm. "Me & You. Always."

Hand Stamping: My very own EMD initialed piece of jewelry.

by Ellen DuBois on 02/06/17



To those who have been hand stamping jewelry, this may not sound like a big deal. But, for jewelry makers like me who never placed a stamp on anything but a letter, it's a big deal! :)

I ordered silver plated disks and antique finished smaller disks, both kinds blank. This was after I ordered a letter and number punch and stamp set and jeweler's steel block. I waited anxiously for all three to finally arrive.

When they did, I didn't feel too well so I had to put off my first attempt at hand stamping. Boo.

Well, today is Monday and I'm feeling quite a bit better. So, I took one of the larger disks, (nice, shiny, silver finish), and stamped my initials into it. I discovered a few things:

You only get one bite at the apple, so make sure you're using a hammer that's heavy enough to deliver a good "wham". (My little jewelry hammer didn't work so I did the unthinkable: borrowed my fiance's hammer! Ha!)

My little, (and I do mean little) work desk which is really a typing desk, is not strong enough as a base for stampling letters and numbers into discs. So, the metal block I bought is necessary and makes all the difference.

Make sure the lighting is good. I had to line up my letters and it's tough to do if you can't see clearly.

I guess that's about it. I'm looking forward making more hand stamped, personalized bracelets. I just want to get more practice in first.

So, this first piece is for me. I'll attach it to a bracelet and have my very own EMD initialed piece of jewelry.

I'll post a picture of my bracelet when it's done.

This beatiful Amethyst swirl glass heart bracelet is perfect for anyone and would make a wonderful gift for someone with a birthday in June, too. There are two colors of Swarovski crystal, clear and purple, combined with glass, rainbow colored beads, polymer clay beads, purple druzy beads and Czech glass lavender spacer beads. It's a winning combination with plenty of sparkle! The heart is a symbol of love and there are so many kinds of love: romantic love, family, sisters, friends and more.

"Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes." - Holy Bible: New International Version

Let There Be Peace On Earth! #peace #worldpeace #peacesign

by Ellen DuBois on 12/17/16



Just finished this peace bracelet. It's great for somebody with a December birthday because of the turquoise and light blue Swarovski crystals. I'’s also great for somebody who loves the peace sign. There's a tiny peace charm in the back, too, accompanied by a small angel wing. The world we live in can be scary sometimes. We all see the news, read the paper, and may wonder what will happen next. I try to focus on peace, the good in people, God and the angels. It can be tough because we are surrounded by negativity. But there is so much good in the world. There is so much good in people. There is peace- just not enough of it. Perhaps, if more of us focused on peace, we would see the end result: a more peaceful world. I just made this so it's not listed in my Etsy shop yet. Scratch that...it is in my shop now! Have a great day filled with peace! #etsyshop #etsyjewelry #beading #beads #handmade #handmadejewelry #create #inspire #stackbracelets #stretchbracelets #accessorize #handmadeaccessories #supportlocal #supporthandmade #armcandy #fashion #fashionable #jewelrywithmeaning #madewithlove #peace #peaceonearth #decemberbirthday #giftsforher #Christmasgift #stockingstuffer #madeinusa #sparkle #nikon #peacesign

Random Beading = Beautiful Combination! #beads #beading #etsy

by Ellen DuBois on 12/17/16



This is a very random bead combination, but I'm really liking it. I used purple druzy beads, rainbow glass beads, clear and purple Swarovski Crystal along with Czech glass seed bead spacers. One is for my shop and one is being sent as gift to somebody who doesn't know she's getting it. I think that's a lot of what Christmas is about. You learn, over time that giving really makes you feel good. I made these tonight because there's a lot going on and I wanted to focus on one thing. I find making bracelets to be very calming- almost meditative. Combine that with messages of hope, faith, healing, angels and more and I feel relaxed. Even if it's just for a little while, it's all good. I think I will use a small angel wing charm and a #believe charm. #etsyshop #etsyjewelry #beading #beads #handmade #handmadejewelry #create #inspire #stackbracelets #stretchbracelets #accessorize #handmadeaccessories #angels #jewelrywithmeaning #gifts #giftformom #giftsforher #Christmasgift #stockingstuffer #madeinusa #sparkle #nikon #purple #personaltouch #druzy #hopeangelbracelets

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! Hope Angel Bracelets

by Ellen DuBois on 12/10/16



I want to thank you for all of your support. Every time I make a bracelet for you, I'm filled with gratitude! I hope my bracelets bring you joy, inspiration and smiles.

The story behind this picture:

My fiance is in my work space, so I'm taking a little break. While sitting on the couch sipping coffee from a Christmas mug, (a gift from one of my students), I felt inspired to get my Christmas bracelets. I placed them on the table and arranged them by color. I love the colors, the meaning, of Christmas. Now, I'm feeling a little inspired to get some decorations up around the house. Everything's been a whirlwind lately. Taking time to slow down and take a picture of my Christmas bracelets inspired me. That's exactly what I needed and what I hope my bracelets do for those who wear them.

Here's to your health and happiness in 2017.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

Ellen

Beautiful Black and White #BeadedBracelet, #Etsy #giftforher #stockingstuffer

by Ellen DuBois on 12/08/16



I love black and white, always have. In this bracelet I used black lava beads, quartz crystal, and black onyx. I also added some smaller hematite spacers to give it texture and dimension. The charms are an angel wing and the word love. This is a bracelet you could easily wear with anything and the center charm, which is a black and white, square, marbled gemstone, is a beautiful focal point. The angel wing reminds you that the angels surround you and your loved ones at all times. If you need help call on them. The word love speaks for itself. "Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes." -Holy Bible: New International Version
