She was looking for a special bracelet to gift to her Aunt Patricia, who just received a life saving transplant. After discussing her options, Jessica decided on having a custom beaded survivor bracelet designed to honor and celebrate her aunt.
As an artist, it's difficult to put into words how a design will just come to mind, simply by conversing with the customer. I will generally gather some basic information on what they desire in the design (or don't desire), if there are any special colors, symbols or words they'd like to see in the design -and it is during these conversations that a design will just begin to form in my mind.
Patricia's Custom Red Heart Transplant Survivor Bracelet (BA218)
For all the custom jewelry designs I've created, I believe only once did I change/tweak the design a little more to accommodate the customers' wishes. I am always so overjoyed when a customer is thrilled with their own personalized bracelet!
While talking with Jessica, what came to mind was a design idea that I have not used in all the years I've been creating. I was inspired to create a heart charm near the center of the design, instead of at the clasp which is where I generally place charms -and the final design was perfect!
Petite Sterling Silver Red Crystal Drop Earrings
Along with Patricia's Custom Red Heart Transplant Survivor Bracelet (BA218), I included a sweet pair of petite red Swarovski Crystal drop earrings to match.
As with all my awareness jewelry designs, they serve the purpose of raising awareness. Did you know? Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer*. That's a scary statistic ladies!
You can help raise awareness of heart disease in women and make a difference simply by sharing this blog post. And let's make this beautiful heart awareness bracelet the most pinned over on Pinterest!
