Jane Austen


     Are you a Jane Austen fan? I am definitely a fan of the movies made from the books, but I am ashamed to say that I have not yet read one of her books. I KNOW! Lazy reader, lol! I need to.... I didn't catch the satirical style of her writing from the movies, but my girls have told me all about it. Austen's books are definitely on my TBR (to be read) list.

     If you are looking for a gift for your favorite Jane Austen fan (this totally includes yourself, btw), check these out! Inspired by the stories, created from books, these bracelets are handmade using the book (never copied) pages. These cute conversation starters are a fun way to keep your favorite characters close to your heart.

     Simply click on the photo captions to see more.

Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland quote

Game of Thrones bracelet




Oh, my sweet summer child," Old Nan said quietly, "what do you know of fear?
Fear is for the winter, my little lord, when the snows fall a hundred feet
deep and the ice wind comes howling out of the north. Fear is for the long
night, when the sun hides its face for years at a time, and little children
are born and live and die all in darkness while the direwolves grow gaunt and
hungry, and the white walkers move through the woods” 


Are there any Game of Thrones fans in the house?? There are in mine, that's for sure! I know, it's a long wait for season 7 to start. Until then, how are you getting your GOT fix? These make fantastic birthday gifts too.

These bracelets are inspired by the stories, created from the books. Click on the caption to find out more about any of the bracelets.

Outlander book page bracelets


     Raise your hand if you are an Outlander fan! I had not heard of Outlander until a couple of years ago. We were visiting the in-laws for Christmas a couple of years ago and my mother in law told me about how they had been watching the season one marathon. She told me what the show was about and while it sounded interesting, I had no desire to become engrossed in a tv show. So, fast forward a couple of months and I remembered our conversation. I checked out the first episode and I was HOOKED! As soon as we wore out all of the episodes that I could, I picked up the book. I ended up reading the entire eight book series in only six months. It is such an amazing series!!
     That conversation proved to be very serendipitous, as my Outlander bracelets have been best sellers since I began making them.

I have some with sterling silver charms, such as this Scottish thistle:

I also have this sterling silver dragonfly:

How about the ship for Voyager?

I also have stacking sets! Here is a book bead bracelet and a metal adjustable bracelet with the letters J, F, C (Jamie Fraser Claire), monogram style.

These are fun! I removed the innards from a vintage watch and added a piece of a book page.

This one was inspired by Jamie's hunting tartan.

Chemistry - Do You Love it or Hate it?


     Raise your hand if you are a fan of chemistry! My mother would tell me that chemistry is just like cooking, that you just put recipes together. Ummmmmm, no. That was not my experience. There was way too much math, lol!

     I AM a fan of happy though! The charm on this bracelet is a serotonin molecule. How cute is that??

     This bracelet was made using beads that I handmade using a vintage chemistry textbook.

      There is a kind of chemistry that I am a fan of though - the kind of chemistry that brings people together! I seriously love making new friends, connecting with old ones, and hanging with my family.

     Who do you know that is a fan of chemistry?
