Hope Angel Bracelets Blog
I got a request to make a bracelet with a sister charm and a small angel. When I make a remembrance bracelet, I know how much it will mean to the person receiving it. I always try my best to make sure it's just right.
I was asked to use pink, clear and pearl crystals with large, silver spacers. I don't have a pearl bead, but I do have an opaque, white crystal bead that resembles pearl. So, I used that.
I think it's beautiful. More importantly, I hope the person who ordered it feels the same way. I sent a picture to be sure it's what she wanted. I think it's worth taking the time to get it right.

It was an honor to make this for a woman who lost her precious baby named Hope. She chose the colors. Peridot is for August, which would have been her birthday. Her ashes are scattered in the Ozark Mountains where all the beautiful purple amethyst is. This will mean a lot to her son, too, who believes his sister is an angel watching over him. God bless her.

It's been several years since I started making Hope Angel Bracelets. It's amazing when I think about how much time has passed! New styles have been added along with an exciting array colors, beads, charms and more.
I love creating new designs because like everything in life, things evolve, change, grow.
The "I Believe" bracelet is so pretty. It sparkles in any light. I used the Believe angel charm because it represents how much I believe the angels are with us. They guide, protect and help us whenever we call upon them.
I also believe in God, the good in humanity, the need for helping each other and supporting one another. I believe in miracles, too. Since we're entering the Christmas season, I was inspired to create an "I Believe" bracelet. It just felt right. :)

Lately, I've been asking the angels for lots of help. With my mother in the hospital/rehab since the end of September and a very sick dog, a lot of angel prayers have been said.
You know what? I believe they work. I believe the angels are there to help us in any way they can. We just have ask.
The angels have been there for me in so many ways- too many to count! I thank them every day, and this bracelet is another way to remind me to thank angels for their help - and to remember to ask for it whenever the feeling arises.
"May the angels surround you, protect you, guide and heal you. May they give you the strength and comfort you need and surround you with their light."
I hope you like the "Angel Prayers" Hope Angel Bracelet, and thank you for visiting! - Ellen

Hello and thank you for visiting Hope Angel Bracelets :)
It's hard to believe it's Halloween. Tomorrow, it'll be November. Wow. It's been a busy time, to say the least.
I was watching TV last night, snuggled up on the couch with my dog who isn't feeling very well. A commercial came on about the Hallmark Christmas movies beginning tonight. I love those movies, but found myself wondering where the year went!
This morning, I was looking at a silver & black bracelet I'd made. I also looked at a silver and gold one. Hmmm. Why not combine the two and make a Silver, Black and Gold bracelet. Change the style up a bit? I mixed it up with some larger "Bling" silver beads with a pretty rainbow of crystal around the middle and used all three colors of Swarovski crystal: silver, black and gold.
I love it! I hope you do, too.
Hope angel bracelets are hand made by yours truly, come in your choice of colors, styles and charms and are great gifts for the holidays. At $14 each or 2 for $25, they are pretty, affordable gifts for friends, coworkers, as stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, teacher's gifts and much more. They sparkle like there's no tomorrow and the angel/inspirational charms give your spirit a lift.
That's why I love making them so much.
Get your order in for the holidays now to be sure you'll receive your bracelet(s) in time. I make them for girls, too.
Have a day filled with hope...and angels :)
With November coming up, I made this Topaz Touch Hope Angel Bracelet. Topaz is the birthstone for November.
I read some interesting information on topaz. I found it on a site called Emily Gems:
"Topaz is a soothing, empathetic stone that will direct energy to the place it is most needed. It heals and energizes. Topaz is a promoter of truth and forgiveness. Use it to find your own path." From Emily Gems.
I do believe it the healing power of colors and the energy associated with different gems. I use Swarovski crystal, not gemstones. However, I like to know about the gem colors and in my own way, apply them to the crystals I use.
Either way, I hope you find Hope Angel Bracelets pretty, inspiring and sparkly :)

I've always been drawn to the color purple, but I don't often wear it, at least when it comes to clothing.
I do love the purple in jewelry, accessories, etc. This morning, I made a "Purple Light" Hope Angel Bracelet. I love how the purple makes me feel, never mind how beautiful the Swarovski crystals are!
Here's a bit of information about the color purple in crystals, found on Emily Gems: "Purple is the color of good judgment. It is the color of people seeking spiritual fulfillment. It is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. Purple is a good color to use in meditation.
Purple has been used to symbolize magic and mystery, as well as royalty. Being the combination of red and blue, the warmest and coolest colors, purple is believed to be the ideal color. Most children love the color purple. Purple is the color most favored by artists. Thursday's color is purple."
Funny how I chose purple before I had any idea that Thursday's color is purple!
(My piano students LOVE the color purple!)

Red Swarovski crystal caught my eye this morning and so I designed this "Ruby Red Warmth" bracelet.
I've always loved the color red. It makes me feel energized. Red brightens up my entire appearance and I've often been told I look good in red. I'm not sure, but I do wear it a lot. Even my lipsticks are different shades of red :)
With that in mind, I designed "Ruby Red Warmth". I love the richness of the deep, red Swarovski crystal and the contrast with the silver, smaller spacer beads.
I used my favorite angel as the charm. She makes me smile :)
Red also makes me think of love, (Valentine's Day), and Christmas. Wow, it's right around the corner!
Thank you for visiting Hope Angel Bracelets. If you want to place an order in time for the Christmas, please order now as my inventory always changes. I want to make sure I have the right colors and charms for you! They are $14.00 each or 2 for $25.00. I pay shipping in the U.S.A.

I was feeling tired this morning. I didn't get enough sleep and have been running back and forth to the hospital to see my mother. I always ask the angels to be with her as she heals. Last night I asked them to be with me, too.
The angels never let me down. :)
Today is a new day. While working in my office/bracelet making room, the urge to create a new style of bracelet hit. When that happens, I jump on it!
I was drawn to the beautiful blue Swarovski crystal.
Did you know: Blue is calming, relaxing and healing. Blue is also the color of communication. Blue relates to the throat chakra and to ailments like bronchitis, a hoarse throat, etc. Well, when I got up this morning my voice was very hoarse.
No wonder I was drawn to the color blue.
Thank you for visiting Hope Angel Bracelets and have a day filled with hope and...angels :)
PS- Place your orders for Christmas now! I want to make sure I have the colors and charms you want. Hope Angel Bracelets are $14.00 each or 2 for $25.00. I pay shipping in the USA. Thank you!
Inspiration comes at random times. Today, it was early this morning when the sun just began to rise. I was sitting in my office after letting the dog out and of course, getting my coffee. Without it, I'm pretty useless!
I looked at the black Swarovski crystal beads strewn on my table next to the new, silver, round spacer beads I ordered which have a rainbow band of crystal color around the middle. The contrast of the black and silver looked great. The touch of rainbow beads added just the right splash color to the look.
There you have it! I knew I was supposed to create a new Hope Angel Bracelet and I'm happy with the result. I hope you are, too!
Hope Angel Bracelets are available in your choice of colors, sizes and designs. There are many to look at throughout this website. Have an idea of your own? Please, get in touch with me! I'd be more than happy to create a design especially for you.
Hope Angel Bracelets make great gifts for friends, family members, coworkers, grab gifts, hostess gifts, teacher gifts, etc. At only $14.00 or 2 for $25.00, they're an affordable, quality gift that carries a special meaning to whoever you give it to- including yourself. I also make remembrance baby rememberance bracelets and with October being Pregnancy and Infant Loss Month, a Hope Angel Bracelet with the "Remember Charm" in pink, blue, a combination of both or whatever color Swarovski crystals you choose would be a gift of comfort to someone who needs it.

"It is good to embrace a hope." - Ovid
Hope. It keeps us going. It's the light for us when we're trying to see through the darkness. Hope keeps us afloat on stormy seas and wraps us like a blanket when we're shivering. Hope dries our tears and gives us something to hold on to when we're thinking about giving up.
"It is good to embrace a hope." - Ovid
Hope is what my bracelets are all about. Look down at your wrist and be reminded that hope is always there. It doesn't disappear- even on those days when we don't feel it. Hope Angel Bracelets are gentle reminders to believe, have faith and to never lose HOPE.
The bracelet above is a new design in pink and clear Swarovski crystal. The small, round silver spacer beads add a touch of "bling". The pink breast cancer awareness charm is accompanied by an angel...a hope angel.
You can order yours in any size you want, from small up.
Thank you for visiting Hope Angel Bracelets. Have a day filled with hope and angels :)
Love and Blessings,
This was an experiment and I really love it! I ordered very pretty "blingy" beads to use as spacers, small and large, and ended up making a whole Hope Angel Bracelet out of them! I used the Tibetan silver spacers in between. It's light, bright, matches anything and sparkles! I paired it with two other Hope Angel Bracelets I always wear and the three looked great stacked. A woman at Costco came over to me while we were checking out and complimented me on my bracelets. It felt great!
Thank you for visiting Hope Angel Bracelets and have a day filled with hope and...angels ;)
My Sword the Dove
Never will a day go by
when I will not remember,
that fateful day which changed our lives-
the Eleventh of September.
Never will a moment pass
when my lips won't whisper a prayer,
to God for those left in the wake-
of emptiness and terror.
Never will I take for granted
the precious gift of life,
stripped away one horrific day-
our children, husbands, wives.
Never will I fear those who cast
their evil on our land,
nor will I tremble in their presence-
as my spirit takes a stand.
Never wavering in their midst
I raise my sword of faith-the Dove,
who battles not with weapons-
but with the power of Love.
Never will the moment when
the world cried a storm of tears,
leave my heart, my soul my spirit-
it's forever planted there.
Never will that seed grow into
evil, hate or devastation,
I must water it with Heavenly peace-
for the world and for this nation.
Never will I gaze upon
another sister or brother,
and be blinded to the fact that
we're connected to each other.
Never will acts of hatred
overpower those of Love,
for if they do, I shall not have-
my sword, my weapon- the Dove.
May the Sword of the Dove reach every hand, spreading its love, faith, comfort, hope and light to all who loved, lost and wept.
In Memory of September 11, 2001.

("Glisten" Hope Angel Bracelet)
Thanks for stopping by Hope Angel Bracelets!
It's hard to describe the feeling I get when I see a picture of one on my Hope Angel Bracelets on the person who ordered it. Priceless is the best I can come up with.
It's so rewarding to know I've made someone's day a bit brighter, maybe added some 'sparkle' to their day and brought with it a gentle reminder of the comfort of angels. That's the inspiration behind Hope Angel Bracelets.
Have a wonderful day filled with hope and yes...angels.
I love coming up with new designs for Hope Angel Bracelets. Finding Swarovski crystal in new colors is a lot of fun, too.
This bracelet, called "Glisten" is made with beautiful blue/silver/clear crystal beads, bling spacers in between and Tibetan groupings of six spacers. It also has a Tibetan silver angel attached, (my personal favorite of the angel charms).
Originally, it was going to be part of my Christmas collection. But, I've already sold several. I know it's because it's just so pretty...it glistens!
I'll still include it as one of my Christmas bracelets, but it's here now and boy does it sparkle. :)
Thank you for visiting Hope Angel Bracelets. Have a day filled with hope and angels,
Hello and thank you for visiting Hope Angel Bracelets.
Pets have always occupied a huge space in my heart. I remember every pet I've been blessed to have with great love.
There are so many wonderful memories dating back to when I was a little girl.
I've also read many posts on FB about pets who have crossed Rainbow Bridge. My heart goes out to all who have endured losing a pet. I know how painful it is.
This bracelet was inspired by the love we have for our pets and the precious memories they leave with us when they cross over. The Swarovski crystal represents the rainbow, the paw print our beloved pets and the angel wing- Heaven.
Have a day filled with hope and angels,
It may seem early for me to be making my Christmas Hope Angle Bracelets, but, it's really not. Yes, we've still got plenty of summer to enjoy. The days of August are upon us and that means there are vacations planned, beautiful days at the beach, kids playing outside, watering gardens and so much more.
However, I've got to get ready now for Christmas orders. So, I decided to get going on my Christmas bracelets- and it was nice to put together different color combinations of Swarovski crystal, along with different groupings of spacers, etc., to give a fresh look and feel to my easy to wear, (they stretch on and off), bracelets.
So, here's a preview of what's to come. I'll be thinking up more names/color combinations for my Christmas Hope Angel Bracelet Collection. If YOU have any ideas or suggestions, please contact me! I love how my customers inspire me. I enjoy making the perfect bracelet for you!
Picture above I've you see: Silver Bells, done in pretty shades of silver Swarovski crystal and is VERY sparkly. On all of my bracelets, you choose the charm. :)
Christmas Colors: Made from colors that remind me of Christmas, especially when they're mixed together: red, green, gold, silver and white.
Winter Wonderland- A lovely combination of white, silve and clear Swarovski crystal. Reminds me of the glistening snow and ice on a sparkling winter night.
Candy Cane- Christmas and candy canes seem to go hand in hand, and that's what inspired this red and white bracelet. I give out so many candy canes to my piano students around Christmas time. I also remember hanging them on my tree as a child. I also think the red and white color comibination is very pretty.
Silver and Gold- I love the song, "Silver and Gold" and think back to my childhood when it was finally time to watch Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer on TV! My sisters and I loved it so much. Those years are fleeting, but oh, so precious! I used some "bling" spacers to give it extra sparkle. Much like the Winter Wonderland and the Silver Bells braclets, this will match anything.
Thank you for visiting Hope Angel Bracelets. Please contact me if you have any questions, or would like to place an order. These make great grab gifts, teacher's gifts, hostess gifts and are super for you and a friend at two for only $25.00. I include an organza gift bag with each bracelet- perfect for gift giving.
Have a day filled with hope and angels! Ellen
Pretty color combination: Black and Gold Swarovski crystal Hope Angel Bracelet.
Here are some terrific specials on beads for jewelry making from PandaHall. I've ordered most of my Swarovski crystal from ebay and have bought some from local businesses, (when the price has been right). In order to keep my costs down, I scour the Internet and local, retal businesses for the best value. If I didn't do this, I couldn't sell Hope Angel Bracelets for only $14.00/2 for $25.00. It's important I keep my bracelets affordable for everyone, but that doesn't mean I sacrifice quality. It simply means more looking, digging and finding the right Swarovski crystal at the right price.
PandaHall is new to me, but there are some wonderful specials I wanted you to know about in case you make your own jewelry, or know someone who does. I think they've got a great selection and know I'll be shopping there.
Happy shopping! Ellen
Hello and thank you for visiting Hope Angel Bracelets.
As I've said in other posts, each bracelet I make has a special meaning to the person ordering it. That's why they're custom made. People request different charms, colors and sizes. They may want a set, like the one pictured here. This happens to be a set of three bracelets, all with a Dance charm, in variations of pink Swarovski crystal. They're for a grandmother, mother and daughter. Although they're similar, I made each one a bit different because we're all different! But, the color is predominantly pink, which was a request. The dance charms were also a request. This will be the daughter's last year of dance school & high school, so the bracelets have significant meaning to the family.
I hope all three ladies wear their Hope Angel Bracelets in good health and happiness, and when they look at their sparkling bracelet, think of each other and the ties of love that bind. <3
I made this bracelet for all those who need to be reminded, during some the most trying times, hope is always there.
Hope Angel Bracelets Breast Cancer Awareness Bracelet. Pink Swarovski crystal, pink spacers, Tibetan silver spacers, sparkly pink ribbon charm and an angel wing.
