It's no secret that my favorite jewelry clients are a group of 3rd grade teachers in Temecula. Sandy, Michele, and Karen are some of the loveliest people I know. I kind of wish I was one of the teachers on their team (or a kid in their class) because they are so full of love and warmth. The highlight of my week is stopping by on their lunch hour to deliver jewelry. I always come away feeling a little bit taller and like I can conquer whatever curve ball is coming my way next. These bracelets started out with the one above, a gift that Sandy ordered for Dana, at Christmastime. Well, guess what . . . they all needed to have one. I put them together and then met up at lunch to measure their wrists and finish off the clasp.
This is a hand-cut sterling silver oval, gently hammered on the edges and stamped with their name. It is strung on the softest deer skin leather cord. The ends are wire-wrapped and finished with a sterling silver clasp and sweet little freshwater pearl.
The bracelet wraps around the wrist 3 - 4 times. (Michele added the words "accept" "faith" and "peace" to hers). They make everyday lovely.
