Call it what you will, Hippie, Gypsy, Bohemian, even Trendy, but the simplicity of stacking charm bangles fully embraces a timeless fashion style. One I absolutely love. What I don’t love is wearing the same thing everyone else has. The generic sayings charms that everyone can find at the mall. And the new charms we just got in, freshly laser etched and added to our Stainless Steel adjustable bangles, paired with complementing accent charms are not going to be found in any mall, anywhere.
There are so many more in our Etsy shop, and we just opened a 2nd shop on Artfire our “Showcase Bangle Shop”.

When I think of Best Friends Woody & Buzz always come to mind.
“You’ve Got A Friend In Me”
And with my new goals of creating exclusive charms, laser cut, not stamped, high quality stainless steel charms. Something no one else will carry. this was my first thought.
A best friend set.
Here is the story board for what we have set out to make. In by the end of the month, made in small amounts.
This $40.00 set, will include two stainless steel bangles, each with the exclusive “You’ve got a friend in me” charm and the above pictured cowboy hat on one and the spaceship on the other. They will each come in their own gift box, and as always custom labeling is available at no extra cost or we design a standard label to adorn the box.
I was so excited about this I have released it for pre-order, which always comes with free shipping. You can contact us on our Facebook page or inbox us through our etsy shop to reserve yours. I don’t see this lasting long once its in and to keep with the uniqueness this will not be mass produced.
You either are a fan of the Kraken or you’re not.
I happen to be a fan. In every form, from a framed poster in my studio, to the jealously I have for my best friends ring ( a Kraken hold a huge pearl!)
I find the mystery and fork lure appealing. The art, flare, and over all variety, this “theme” has.
I know I’m not alone in this.
So in preparation for the holiday’s Ive added some new Kraken Cameo Cuff Bracelets.
I took my time with choosing just the right settings for these handmade cameos, and I couldn’t be happier.
and of course a Gift Box!
Packaging has always been very important to me.
It is an extension of me, what I made, and what you’re buying.
I wanted the boxes for my bangles to be simple, yet reflect the “look” I want for JerseyGypsy
(I find I am Burlap, Lace, and Kraft Paper)
But I also believe the box wants to be more. That it can speak volumes even before its opens.
And this is why I create custom labels.
Like this “Gypsy Soul” quote the label came even before the finished bracelet.
Even our wedding party gifting has a simple, yet elegant label to reflect the what and why.
I know I should be creating for fall, and I am in a way.
But today, well Im not yet ready to let go of summer.
Even though its cool(er) and damp today, no sun, and pouring rain it is after all only August!
And this Jersey Girl is putting together bangles…
Hopefully these will be in my etsy shop by the end of the week, for now made to oder on my facebook page.
Im doing these very limited options and amounts in Stainless Steel for $20.00
Im hoping Ill make and list more than I keep! 🙂
We hit the water to go paddling yesterday, and it finally felt like summer as sweat rolled down my back, and the sun stung my shoulders. Paddling Ole Redd on Cedar Creek.
The water rolled fast, after all weve had a lot of rain, and it was the first time in a long time I found I really had to work to control the canoe. Never mind that my husband sits in the back relaxing and not working much at it at all, and the 5 year old leans over the side splashing the water.
Crowds of people were out enough where I swear we could have all linked up and reached from one end of Double Trouble Park to the other. I know its wrong but I wish no one to be out when we go, the inexperience of so many blocking up the turns, and making us have to fight back rushing into them as we approach, or the beer drinking good timers who think they own the place.
I just want to creep along slowly taking in the breeze, and the scent of Water Lilies so heavy in the air. I want to enjoy the sun and the lush greenery that’s so grow over the creek this time of year that in some places it falls like curtains.
I added a lil funny to Ole Redd since out last time…
I guess if nothing else its funny to me, I do after all “get the joke”.
So love that at the end I ran in to an old friend as well, so funny to think she was just behind us the whole time paddling.
Mondays get a bad wrap, but I get it I hate them too ending the weekend and all.
But this Monday was refreshing. A new week was starting and I had an awful week last week.
Its looking good so far, as the mail brought a ton of new supplies in and I was able to finish up a few bangles Ive had on the back burner.
These have flown off my hands but I had ordered enough thankfully to put 2 up on etsy
And I finally finished a full collection
Our Stainless Steel Wanderlust Collection, this is a favorite of mine
this and so much more this week, a new week and new start!
