This Colored Glass Bracelet was inspired by all the glass sitting in boxes. I felt selfish being the only one to enjoy such pieces of raw art. Each bracelet is it's own piece of art, varring slightly, being unique.
Hand cut, hand soldered, hand picked for you.
You can hang it in your window to store it if you would like!
1.5 inches wide and adjustable length, lobster claw to attach

One of the favorite things about my business is to be able to do special orders. This is a cute girl who found me off of Simply Utah (a button is provided on main page of my blog). I was featured there...She ordered and gave me free-range of what I could do with her photos.
I had thought of what I could do that would be different yet classy. So, I was at the drive-thru at Zions Bank and noticed the teller. She had on a necklace that had 2 rectangle shapes on the left and one bigger on the right of the necklace. The necklace had several chains at the bottom too. My inspiration light went on in my brain. I took that concept and completed the masterpiece. I can't wait to get some updated photos of my kids to make me one.
There are more examples of special orders that I did over Mother's Day. Click on RIGHT TOP of this blog page "Special Orders". Enjoy my blog...

I ended up watching a Good Things Utah episode while working out on the treadmill. They were having a "SpouseOlogy" game show live TV. I wrote a email describing how I was mad in love with my husband. Low and behold they called me on a Wed. said "you are chosen to be a contestant out of 600 applicants and can you visit the studio on Friday".
Wow, I was excited to have the chance to win a getaway for Valentines Day worth $4,000. We truthfully needed a break for a getaway and by hell we studied desperately. So, I was nervous out of my mind and thought ~crap am I really doing this?
We lost by one question. I thought they asked "Who do I want to go with me to a private Island" I said my sister or my mom, and it was for Jason to take from my family. He would have said Mike the funny fisherman. DANG! We did get a gift certificate to a nice restaurant that we still have not used.

These are some of my favorite special orders. I love how meaningful they are to the individuals. One of them had a mother who died of breast cancer, hence the pink ribbon. There have been a lot of women who's children have died who request a special order pendant or bracelet with an initial or sometimes they have photos and quotes (see bracelet). You can make something really meaningful.
