Seriously, what woman doesn’t love jewelry? I can’t think of one.

This is why when I married the hubby, who has no brothers and three (yes - three) sisters, I knew exactly where I was going. I was going to learn how to make jewelry. This has been the foundation of my Christmas gifting prowess for the last four years. I wasn’t sure if it was a popular gift until last year when they opened the gift and said “Oooohh … it is our Jess’ jewelry gift!!” It is a thing now – my girlfriends love it too.

So here are a couple of things I am working on …
(Disclaimer – I still haven’t told the majority of my family and friends that I even have a blog so I can reveal some of my Christmas gifts. The hubby knows, my dad knows, my lil bro knows. And I have told my mom and she swears we will go out “and look at my blog thing” when I am there this weekend. Oh and my BFF Meighan knows – and she does read – love you Meeeiiighan!)

So for another BFF Kelly (who I will be telling as soon as she calls me back) I have made this necklace, not for Christmas but for her birthday (Happy Birthday!!). I chose this message especially for her – and she knows why.

For my sis-in-law Amy, I made these earrings. Cause I know she likes them big and with bling!


And for my other sis-in-law Megan, I made this necklace. I get to give it to her on Saturday. She finds out what her baby is on Monday! I am hoping she gets lots of dreams are between now and then!


I know what you are thinking … where is the gift for the other sister? Well, we don’t "Christmas" with her until after the New Year so I have a lil time. Don’t judge me, I have already told you I am a procrastinating crafter …

Stopping by from SITS.
Love the jewelry! I do some hand-stamped pendants, which reminds me...I need to get one made to give next week!

These are lovely and very professional looking. I think my thing is calendars for my family members. They love them.

oh my gosh -- I love those necklaces!! Do you sell them -- or can you point me in the direction of the supplies. They're awesome!


I'm very sorry for the delay in coming to say hello, but wanted to thank you for swinging by my blog on Monday for my SITS day. Hope you have a very happy new year!
