J is for Jewellery (what else?) - Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday - J

J is for Jewellery. I'm linking up with Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday, the letter J. Here are some of the latest pieces of stretch-jewellery that are listed or that will be listed in my Etsy shop 'parltradet': Lets start with some purple bracelets:

This purple and green stretch bracelet is inspired by elderberries. One of Erik's teachers bought two. But since she is such a strong and athletic woman, I made them slightly larger to fit her wrists. Something to think about if you ever order. Check the size. I can make ajustments.

Why not wear several bracelets? I give a discount if you buy several at the same time. Get together with friends or relatives and make the same order. You save on shippings costs and get a reduced price. All of these colours and even more designs should be soon available in my Etsy shop 'parltradet'.

Here are some cool blues: cobalt blue.

Or bright red for Christmas?

I had a dream about tiny green olives and thought that they would make a spicey bracelet! So I woke up and made this one:

I hope that December will be a good month for everyone who visits my J-post today. Don't let poor health, bad weather or lack of cash get you down. Remember what Advent and Christmas are really about. It's not about shopping for Christmas presents (even if this can be fun). It's about a family who couldn't get a room in an inn and a newborn baby that changed the world. It's about how we treat each other. It's about love in its purest form.

Peace & Blessings!

I do love the bracelets. I enjoy wearing either one simple one or lots at once. I like your spicy olive-inspired bracelet :)

Gattina said...

I like these bracelets, I have quiet a few but with semi precious stones, or colored perls.

Judie said...

We have our annual Guild show this weekend, and there will be lots of beautiful jewelry. I'll try to get some pictures, so you can see what our Guild jewelers make.

The colors in the image featuring many bracelets just sings...wish I had a long enough arm to wear them all!

Beautiful bracelets. My mother used to make lots of bracelets, and my daughter and I have several that we treasure.

I've missed seeing pictures of your jewelry.

Very nice!

Just wondering, do you ever make stretchy rhinestone bracelets?

Anna! These are gorgeous. I want to use some of these in a Holiday giveaway I'm doing next week. We need to chat about which would be best for that application...e-mail me if you get a second, OK?

I was enchanted by the rainbow of bracelets you displayed.

Thank you for the joyous display of color and talent today.
