Blessed in Ireland

I just had to do a quick blog on this special necklace made for one of my special customers, Diane. She and her family went to Ireland and got to see many of the beautiful sites. She brought back these 3 emblems blessed by a priest from the Catholic church- a cross and two charms with St Patrick on them.

I was so honored and delighted to create a necklace with her cherished pieces from Ireland. She of course wanted the cross and charms hanging on the bottom, and I added an ethereal mix of crystals, pearls and barrel cat eye for an updated yet still classic look. I know she's going to love it.  :)

Olive Faceted Cracked Agate and Rhinestone Cross Bracelet

I just found out I've been accepted again to be in the Annual Orange Park Fall Festival this October 19th and 20th. I am soooo excited!  :)   

Here's a quick preview of a cross bracelet done with semi precious faceted cracked agate stone in a beautiful mix of olive, green and white colors. It also features a silver plated rhinestone cross and rhinestone balls. Only $18. It's been pretty popular on my Facebook Page - Facebook.com/carasjewelrycreations

Thanks to the wonderful folks at Cherry Tree Beads in North Carolina, whose store has a multitude of different stones, crystals, pearls, rhinestone beads and more, I'll be making plenty more of these bracelets, necklaces and rings in various stones and materials. 

Of course, I'll also have more of my all-time fave Kumihimo, or Japanese weaving, style bracelets and necklaces. 

More pics to come, but just wanted to share my excitement with you!!  :)
