Last December a friend of mine was kind enough to do a guest post featuring my Heart and Stroke jewelry series!
The creator of Crystal Allure jewelry, Stephanie, sent me a lovely "Designs Featured Banner" to put on my side bar...take a few minutes to visit her as she features her gorgeous hand crafted jewelry on her blog "Behind The Design" as well as her website. Stephanie also makes awareness jewelry "Animal Awareness", "Cystic Fibrosis Awareness" and "Transplant Awareness"...
As many of you know, I make pendants such as the "Broken Heart" from sterling silver, sometimes I stamp messages on the pendant or sometimes I "mend" the hearts like this one ...I also make heart shaped earrings with wire...
Great Etsy artists pendants are fun to use in my pieces!
Heart shaped semi precious stones are always make great necklaces & earrings!
As I mentioned to Stephanie...the reason I make this series is simple...heart disease has touched my life!!! When something I make includes a heart as part of the design, sells, I make a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. I've been doing this since December 2008. I feel there isn't enough understanding of just how "deadly" heart disease is... unfortunately it isn't taken seriously until it is too late!!!
A heartfelt thank you to Stephanie for her part in bringing to attention all manner of issues with her guest posts and her awareness jewelry!
Enjoy your weekend!
