Christmas Jewelry Gift Ideas from Shadow Dog Designs

 

 

Christmas is almost here . . . but there is still time to check off those special gifts on your list. Artisan handmade jewelry is always a welcome treat, somethign that is not mass produced. Most handmade jewelry are one of a kind necklace and earring designs that come from the artist's heart and soul, such as the beauties featured below.  All of the jewelry below are unique - the wearer would be the only one with that design - except for the snowmen earrings with Swarovski emerald crystals.  Seven new designs can be found in my Indiemade shop since the last post sharing my jewelry.  The last three featured are oldies but goodies that are still looking for a loving home.

 

Autumn Oranges and Browns - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

Even though the temperatures are still getting in the upper-80's to mid-90's here in the Borderlands region, the nights are dropping down into the mid-60's at night.  Autumn is definitely in the air!  I have noticed some of the leaves on some of the bushy sumac trees are beginning to turn.  Due to lack of rain or the shorter days?  Probably both.  But it is nice to see the slide into my favorite time of the year.

Tantalizing Turquoise Blue - Artisan Handmade Creations

 

Turquoise is a color, in all its glorious shades from light to dark, that is greatly beloved by most people.  It is a combination of blue with a small amount of yellow, fitting in the color scale between blue and green.   In color psychology, turquoise is used to heal the emotions, creating emotional balance and stability.  It seems to radiate peace, calm and tranquility coupled with an uplifting quality.  Metaphysically, if it is a favorite color, you are said to be seeking spiritual fulfillment and are often seen as evolved or an “old” soul.

A Bounty of Beautiful Handmade Bracelets

 

 

Right behind earrings, bracelets are one of the most popular forms of body adornment.  The origin of the term "bracelet" is from the Greek word "brachile" meaning "of the arm."  The earliest identified bracelet was discovered in 2008 by Russian archaeologist in Denisova Cave in the Atai Mountains of Siberia.  A finger bone fragment was found along with other artifacts, including a beautiful bracelet created from polished green stone.  The items were carbon dated to around 40,000 years ago.
