Yvonne's Sacred Heart Wedding Jewelry

Yvonne had been searching a long time for the perfect ruby red Sacred Heart wedding jewelry set for her upcoming wedding. It was September 16th and her wedding was just 2 weeks away on September 30, 2011.

She contacted me because she fell in love with the Freshwater Pearl Red Crystal Heart Beaded Necklace Jewelry set (NES4) and was worried, if she purchased it, would it arrive in time for her nuptials.

My response? No problem! I immediately got this bridal jewelry set in the mail to her in time for her destination wedding.

The perfect set for the unique bride -a great gift for your sweetheart on Valentine's Day -or simply just because! Ear wires, beads and components are all sterling silver. Necklace measures 18"; earrings measure 1" from the bottom of the ear wire.

Congratulations Yvonne!

Christina's Custom Addison's Disease Awareness Bracelet (B196-AD)

In mid-April Christina contacted me requesting a custom addison's disease awareness bracelet.

She saw and loved our Guardian Angel Caregiver Awareness Bracelet (B196) but wanted to have it customized.

The nationally recognized ribbon color for Addison's Disease, a rare, chronic endocrine disorder, is light blue.

Christina really loved our caregiver beaded bracelet so much that we kept with that design and customized it with her awareness color, light blue Swarovski Crystals. I replaced the guardian angel charm with a sterling awareness ribbon charm and added a Swarovski Crystal dangle charm for an added feminine touch.

What makes this beaded bracelet and design even more special is the fact that the Swarovski Pearls just happen to also be the birthstone of the gift recipient!

What Christina had to say about her bracelets:
I just received my bracelets today and I wanted to let you know how much I loved them. I am keeping one of them for me and the other one I am giving to my niece who is 19 years old. She was diagnosed with Addisons Disease two years ago. We almost lost her. She was in the hospital for 3 weeks in an induce comma. Know one could figure out what was wrong. It was not until a doctor came in and asked my sister and brother in-law if Charlotte went to a tanning booth. They said no, and at that point he knew she had Addison. That is one of the symptoms that your skin is tan all over.

I am going to give this bracelet to Charlotte in June for her birthday. What makes it even more perfect is that her birthstone is pearl. Thank you for your time in making this a perfect gift.
You are very welcome! It was my honor to design this special bracelet for Christina and her neice, Charlotte -enjoy!

Happy Pulmonary Fibrosis Customer Feedback

In April 2011 Susan purchased seven pulmonary fibrosis bracelets and after she received them, she sent me this email:

Hi Stephanie-
I was away this weekend and came home last night to the bracelets!!! They are so beautiful!!

I'm seeing my family this weekend, so I can't wait to give them out! Thank you sooo much for making this a very memorable experience!! I will definitely log in later to your site to add a comment to let others know what great work you do and what fantastic service you provide!

I know I will be back for other purchases, particularly your awareness items! Thanks so much, Stephanie-you're a keeper!
Best Regards

Around the middle of July 2011, Susan did in fact come back to leave an additional comment. Here is what she wrote:

I can't tell you HOW MUCH we love our bracelets from Stephanie! She not only gives #1 customer service, but she has a great skill set that is being used for worthy causes. All the girls in my family each owns a Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness bracelet (from Crystal Allure Jewelry). It's such a pretty bracelet, and I get compliments often. When I tell people it's an awareness bracelet, they love it even more! Every morning when I put it on, it reminds me to give my Mom a shout out that I still think of her EVERY DAY! Thank you Stephanie for creating something that is pretty as well as instrumental in making sure we never forget the precious things in life.

You are very welcome Susan! I am so glad you love your PF Awareness Bracelets and that you chose Crystal Allure Jewelry for your beaded awareness jewelry! Enjoy and I look forward to working with you again!

Custom Behcet's Disease Awareness Anklet

Back in July, Matia, contacted me to design a custom Behcet's Disease awareness anklet. Her only request was to somehow include the word "hope".

I got to work, first, on learning about behcet's disease. I had not heard of it before and I feel the more I know about a particular disease the more it inspires my designs. It's also important to me to learn what and how these diseases affect those very special people who come to Crystal Allure Jewelry with a custom beaded jewelry request. Read more about behcet's disease below.

The design uses the nationally recognized light blue color for behcet's disease in Swarovski Crystals, accented with sterling silver beads, bali spacers, small awareness ribbon bead and pearl white seed beads. The feature of this beautiful, feminine design is the personalized hand stamped HOPE charm.

Here are just some of the comments Matia shared with me about her beaded awareness anklet:
The anklet is amazing! It is so much more beautiful in person. Thank you so much!


I think it is gorgeous! I love the picture!! I can't wait to get it...thanks so much.

I'm going to tell the people on the Behcet's web group all about it.

I am blown away by how beautiful it is. Thank you so much for taking special time out to make this just for me! When one has a chronic illness, it is little things like this, little acts of kindness that keep ya going. I truly think it is absolutely beautiful. It suits me perfectly. Thanks Stephanie : )

A little about Behcet's Disease
Behcet's disease is an autoimmune disease that results from damage to blood vessels throughout the body, particularly veins. Most symptoms of the disease are caused by vasculitis (an inflammation of the blood vessels).

Behcet's disease is not contagious; it is not spread from one person to another. Behcet's disease affects each person differently.

Welcome Autumn in Style Smoky Quartz Gemstone Earrings

Everyone has a favorite season, mine happens to be autumn. There is everything to love about fall -the crisp air, changing leaves, falling leaves, richer colors, warm apple pie (Mmm-mm!), baking, pumpkin picking and, so much more.

Getting together with the girlfriends for a lunch out and then some fall shopping is exactly what I was thinking of when I created this Welcome Autumn in Style wardrobe board.

Custom Purple Crystal Bridesmaid Jewelry Set

It does not matter whether a custom jewelry request is for a unique beaded jewelry design or a feminine and chic contemporary jewelry design, I always enjoy custom jewelry projects.

Even more enjoyable is when they are for someone's special day. In this case, the beautiful bride, Amanda, was referred to Crystal Allure Jewelry for her bridesmaids jewelry gift sets.

Forever Yours Collection Lavender Purple Bridesmaids DressAmanda was having a late summer wedding and her color was purple (my personal fav!!). She had chosen a lovely lavender bridesmaid dress, from the Forever Yours Collection, for her six bridesmaids. With a swatch in hand, I went to work.

Swarovski offers a variety of purple colored crystals and to keep the shades from clashing, I went with a deep purple velvet crystal. The finished bridesmaids jewelry gift sets were a three-bead Swarovski Crystal pendant on an elegant sterling silver chain with coordinating crystal drop earrings.

Congratulations to both Amanda and Michael on their August 20, 2011 wedding! And thank you Amanda for choosing Crystal Allure Jewelry for your Custom Crystal Bridesmaids Jewelry Sets.
