Hope Angel Bracelets-Inspiration You Wear

Mixing Blacks and Blues (Repost) #beads #beading #etsy

by Ellen DuBois on 08/07/18




I tend to wear three Hope Angel Bracelets on my left wrist. It's become so much of a habit that I don't feel right leaving the house without them on!

Some of my customers like wearing one, while others mix and match them with various bracelets. Sometimes, all three are ones I've made. Other times, it's one of my bracelets combined with jewelry from another crafter, a store, etc.

Either way, it's all good! We all have our own unique personalities and style. I think it's important to remain true to who YOU are, and that includes what jewelry you wear, or don't wear.

There's something I love about the look of black beads, in this case lava and onyx, mixed with blue beads, (turquoise and blue agate). Although I don't wear a lot of blue by itself, I do wear it paired with other things, or simply jeans and a top. The black beads with blue accent beads almost has a calm, earthy feel to it...and I love it.

Custom Order Jewelry Means So Much #repost #etsyshop #giftsforher #bracelets

by Ellen DuBois on 06/08/18



Custom Order Jewelry: I love working on custom orders. When somebody request certain names and colors I know the bracelet has very significant meaning to them. I keep the lines of communication open between myself and my customers because I believe it's very important to get the design right. This is the idea I had based on what she told me. I've sent her a picture and along each step of the way, I make sure it's what she wants. It gives me great satisfaction to know I'm making somebody happy. I think that's what this is all about. I believe that's why handmade items are so special. They are truly one-of-a-kind and made with so much caring and heart.

A Walk On The Beach Is Good For The Soul #beadedbracelet #beachjewelry #etsy

by Ellen DuBois on 05/11/18



A Walk On The Beach Is Good For The Soul beaded bracelet. The charm on the beautiful bracelet is stainless steel and the letters lasered onto the charm. I love the saying and find it so true. Walking the beach clears your mind. I used bright, fun, colorful Polymer Clay Beads in various colors and patters, combined with small, lilac Czech seed beads, (spacers) and Swarovski crystal in multiple colors, (multi-color). I love the starfish charm. It give is such a "beachy" feel. Great for a friend, birthday, a beach theme wedding gift and more. Anyone who loves the ocean and the beach! "The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul."- Wyland

 I'm dreaming of a walk on the beach. I can almost hear the waves gently coming to shore and feel the sand beneath my feet.

You can find the bracelet pictured here and many more in my etsy shop.

Making a Bracelet to Help With My Carpal Tunnel

by Ellen DuBois on 01/12/18



I have carpal tunnel syndrome. I had surgery a year ago on my right wrist. I haven't had it on my left yet. I'm a little bit skeptical about getting surgery again because my right wrist, other than the numbness being less, still hurts.

I did some research to see if there are any natural gemstones or crystals that help relieve carpal tunnel. Here's some of what I found:

Amber: Helpful with physical issues concerning nerve, tissue, muscle and tendons. 

(I didn't have any copper but wanted to include this information.) Copper supports the tissues and red blood cells. Copper is used in bracelets to help with arthritis and other bone/tendon/joint discomforts.

Moonstone and/or Tourmaline: Strengthens muscles, alleviates some muscle weakness issues. I went through my beads and found moonstone, tourmaline, and had some Amber I just ordered.

I combined Amber, Tourmaline and Moonstone beads into a bracelet and wore it today. I'm hoping the properties of the beads will help relieve the symptoms of my carpal tunnel. I'll let you know!

Breast Cancer Awareness Bracelet, Pink Heart, Hope Charm, Handmade Bracelet, #etsy

by Ellen DuBois on 01/06/18



(Last one until I get more pink hearts in stock!) Beautiful Pink heart surrounded by sparkling, pink Swarovski crystals and pink, striped agate. A gorgeous combination. The crystal and agate contrast beautifully with each other. Add to it a pink resin heart charm and on the reverse side a pink ribbon charm and you have a bracelet that represents love, hope and strength. "Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today." -Thich Nhat Han

A Hand Stamped Bracelet for My Hairdresser #etsy #namebracelet #handstamping

by Ellen DuBois on 12/23/17









I had my hair done recently and my hairdresser is one of the nicest people I know. She's warm, funny, caring and a great listener! I wanted to make a bracelet for her as a Christmas gift. I know she loves wearing black, (like me!), and has very petite wrists, (I made a six inch bracelet). 

It was a great feeling when she opened it and loved it! I enjoy thinking about the person I'm making a bracelet for and incorporating their personality into the design. It's fun and I feel like my heart goes into every bracelet I make.

This one was made with black onyx beads, rhinstone spacers, a hand stamped charm with her name on it, (SAM), an angel wing and a tiny HOPE hand stamped charm.

Giving for the sake of simply doing so makes me feel good inside, at Christmas time and the whole year through.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Ellen

Pretty Custom Order Bracelet with a Leaf Charm #bracelets #handmade #etsy

by Ellen DuBois on 12/02/17



This beautiful black and silver, beaded bracelet is a custom order reserved for Milanka. I used black onyx, black and silver Swarovski crystal and pave ball beads for that extra sparkle. I designed this using a leaf charm my customer found and liked. I love it! There are silver plated daisy spacers in between each bead. After looking at the gorgeous outfit she is wearing this with, I let inspiration from that influence the design. I always include a small angel wing charm on all my bracelets. It's there to remind you that no matter what, the angels are near. If you need their help, all you have to do is ask. "Angels descending, bring from above, Echoes of mercy, whispers of love."-Fanny J. Crosby

Pretty Amber Color Bracelet, Custom Order

by Ellen DuBois on 11/05/17



This is a custom order for someone who wanted an amber-colored bracelet. I did not have any genuine amber beads, although I did find some and ordered them at a decent price. They are quite expensive. What I suggested to her was combining amber color Swarovski crystal beads with tigers eye beads. I added rhinestone & silver beads for sparkle. When the snowflake spacers don't have a clean 1 mm hole completely through them, I don't throw them out. Rather, I use my reaming tool which easily opens up the hole so I can finish stringing my beads! I haven't wrapped this one up yet because I'm checking to see if my customer wants a charm. I really love this combination of beads! This would also be great for someone with a November birthday.

Diabetic Bracelet in Blue From Hope Angel Bracelets

by Ellen DuBois on 10/28/17



A customer asked me if I had a charm for diabetes. She inspired me to order some and create a diabetic charm bracelet for her in blue, which is the awareness color for diabetes. I also included a blue ribbon charm and a very tiny angel wing. When I showed her the bracelet, she loved it and that made me feel great. I will make her one in a smaller size and put this one in my Etsy shop. When people suggest things to me I love it because they often inspire ideas I would never think of!
