Chakra Earring Giveaway

Do you find yourself running from one thing to the next? Do you need some balance in your life?  Well, enter this great giveaway and you could win these gorgeous Hill Tribe Silver Chakra Earrings created by Hammi Jammi Jewelry.  Earring hooks are sterling silver and the flower stamped charms are Hill Tribe Silver (which is an even higher quality of silver than sterling).  The beautiful charms are enhanced by Swarovski crystal bicones that represent the seven chakras:

Red- the Root Chakra- this is about the balance between materialistic monotony and the drive of courageous self-protection.

Orange- the Sexual Chakra- associated with emotions, instincts, states of desire, and imagination.

Yellow- the Solar Plexus- is the focus point of our power and will.

Green- the Heart Chakra- associated with love and understanding, compassion, empathy, and forgiveness.

Blue- the Throat Chakra- associated with creativity and the ability to communicate.

Indigo- the Third Eye Chakra- ability to perceive clearly. Intuition, insight and imagination.

Purple- the Crown Chakra- associated with divine wisdom, oneness with the universe, and enlightenment.

Wear these earrings to enhance your mood and re-align your body's energies to fight off illness.

A Child's Paradise....

I have had the opportunity to share my talent with others and I am thrilled to share my experience with my readers.  Back in May, I was asked to submit a proposal for several jewelry workshops at Arrowhead Day Camp during the month of July.  I would be working with intermediate and senior campers to create jewelry.  I was nervous and excited at this work opportunity.  I have done a few children's birthday parties, so this couldn't be that different.  I was correct and I've had such a great time with these young ladies and being able to share my passion with them.

With the senior campers we created freshwater pearl and Swarovski Crystal ankle bracelets with a flip flop charm.

With the intermediate campers we worked on a green and pink fire-polished glass bloomin' stretchy bracelet.

Arrowhead Day Camp is located in West Chester, PA and is situated on over 50 acres of rolling countryside--and it's been there since 1956 and run by the same family.  I was totally blown away at all this camp has to offer--you name it, it's there...horseback riding, swimming, boating, a taboggon style waterslide, games, arts and crafts, computers, and much, much more.  They are even putting on a production of Annie this year.

They say that's it's where new experiences are a common daily occurrence; where friendships and memories are endeared; where kids can learn, grow and enjoy to the maximum their talents and abilities. And I truly believe that I would be hard-pressed to find a child who wouldn't have the time of their life at this place.

I am so glad that they let me into their Arrowhead family for a brief period of time and I thank the owners Ellen and Howie Gilbert for such a wonderful camp experience.  I had a blast and I think I will keep these memories close to my heart for a long time.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Happy Early Birthday, Kristina

One of my dearest friends' birthday is coming up.  We still exchange presents since we are important parts of each other's lives.  I met her in college our freshman year, we pledged the same sorority, and have similar life paths as far as work, marriage, and families go.  Needless to say, we have remained friends 17 years and I know we will be friends forever.

Back in May when she was here for a visit with her son, I was showing her some of the jewelry I have created.  She really loved my photo jewelry and wanted me to make something special for her Mom for her birthday/Mother's Day.  She decided on a photo bracelet with the grandkids pictures in it.  All she had to do was send me some digital photos and I did the rest.

As a present to her I said I would create a bracelet for her as well.  I wanted to share this with you.  I love the black and white photos.  I think it turned out really well and I know she will wear it proudly.  I love to have people, especially friends wear pieces I create.  There is so much satisfaction in making something pretty that someone will enjoy over and over again.

So, Kristina I wish you tons of happiness this upcoming year.  I hope you have lots of sunshine and stars; joy and peace; love and contentment!  You are an amazing friend that I will cherish forever!

Happy Birthday!
