Clear Crick Cottage Jewelry
Hey everyone! I just wanted to take a minute to introduce you guys to a very good friend of mine, Ms. Sherilyn Koss. She has a great little etsy shop called Clear Crick Cottage, where she sells all handmade jewelry made out of all of the prettiest beads in the world.
Recently she made me a beautiful, completely custom made bracelet to wear for my engagement pictures (and my wedding... whenever that happens) and it is absolutely beautiful! This picture is of the bracelet she made for me:
I have some pictures of me wearing it, but I haven't gotten my engagement pictures back yet, so I will post those when I get them. But that picture was one of many that she sent me, showing me different arrangements of beads, colors and clasps. She will take tons of pictures to show you all of the work in progress, and nothing is final until the bracelet is exactly what you want. I wanted an elegant pearl bracelet that included my two favorite colors and a little heart charm. We ended up going with a circle clasp, but she put a heart charm on the bracelet just for me :) As a little added surprise she sent me a simple pearl bracelet that would go with just an every day outfit. I've worn this bracelet almost every single day since I got it because it's so cute and simple, and goes with everything. I get tons of compliments on it every time I wear it.
In addition to making custom jewelry, she also has some beautiful sets in her shop already. A lot of them have earrings, necklace and a bracelet together. I think one of these sets would be a perfect gift for any woman in your life! Here are a couple of her pieces that I am really liking:
If you're still doing some holiday gift shopping (or you haven't started at all like me... *cough cough*) go check out her shop! And get something for yourself, too! You deserve it!
