Do you have a treasured beaded jewelry design that needs repair or beads that are sentimental because a loved one use to wear them?  Do you want to have the jewerly put in wearable condition but do not know where to go.   At Abundant Trove we can restring or repair most of your handmade beaded jewelry designs.  I have had the pleasure of working with family and friends to help put their special pieces back into their lives.  I have done the simple from restringing the design on 49 strand wire,  replacing broken clasps with new, making a design longer or shorter,  and the more in-depth with creating custom handmade designs from bags of  prized beads.

 I think it is truly amazing how jewelry can speak and pieces can inspire you.  When my Nana passed on I received a pearl ring that I can still picture on her hand.  I am not superstitious- Nana was gentle and a bold successful woman and I found comfort in wearing that ring into sales meetings.  It was like she was with me encouraging me on.  I have special pearl earrings that my husband gave me that returns me to my dating days with a smile.  I even have plastic beaded jewelry necklaces that my children made me and I hang them on our Christmas tree.

At Abundant Trove I use quality materials such as 49 strand wire, .925 sterling silver clasps, beads, and findings, and a variety of semi-precious stones.   In repairing a jewelry piece I am determined that each piece have a high quality finished look as I find great satisfaction in a happy customer!

How does one inquire about having a beaded jewelry piece repaired?  Contact me and share your details of what you desire and if possible send a photo.  I will then reveiw your information and quote you if I am able to repair your piece.  I will also give you a time in which to expect the piece to be returned to you. If you agree you will send me your jewelry piece/parts and 50% of the quoted price.   On custom beaded jewelry designs from your bag of beads, I will take a photo of the created design and wait for your approval before the jewelry piece is finished with a clasp.  You will then pay the balance and I will ship your piece free of charge and return any parts/pieces I did not use.

Abundance is a jewelry design restored and wearable!

I wanted to thank all you girls who attended the fabulous Girls Night Out event.  I was glad to hear the photo booth was fun and created smiles and memories. I was very thankful to be able to show my handmade beaded jewelry designs to you.  I am grateful for all the jewelry pieces that were sold.  I hope you are all enjoying them and thinking on the wonderful night spent with friends. 

At Abundant Trove I can custom size and design unique beaded jewelry pieces.  For example, you may visit my jewelry shop and see a bracelet or necklace but would like the piece  to be longer or shorter.  Just ask me because in most sizing situations I can accommodate you.  I really enjoy creating the beaded jewelry designs but also take pleasure in creating a perfect fit and piece that delights the person who will wear my jewelry. 

As Christmas approaches and you need gifts whether for a gift exchange or multiple favors please keep Abundant Trove handmade beaded jewelry in mind.  I would love to receive your business.  Also, I am taking orders for handmade beaded bookmarks for teacher appreciation gifts.  Please contact me if you are interested.  You may want to read my blog on beaded bookmarks to see some designs.  I do still have millifiore glass hearts and foil glass hearts.

Thank you, Judie,  for hosting Girls Night Out and to all of you who came!!!

 

 

 

My sister-in-law, Judie, is hosting a jewelry party to show the unique designs from Abundant Trove and for a fun girls night out  before the fall schedule kicks in.  I loved her on-line inivitation with the photo of the all too darling girls.  No matter our age, we are all young girls at heart.  I love designing jewelry and wearing jewelry because it accentuates the girl in me and I hope my designs bring out the girl in you!

It is never too soon to think about Christmas gifts.  I hope that a piece or two may speak to you or maybe, make you think of a loved one.  Take the opportunity and escape the December shopping madness that robs the intended peace of the season.  Maybe, your daughter (the young teens-early twenties seem to have the money these days) can purchase a Christmas gift for you. 🙂   I do like that jewelry can stir memories of time spent together and become sentimental.

Each of my jewelry pieces comes in an organza bag with a handwritten card describing the genuine semi-precious stones used in the beaded design.  I do custom design pieces upon request and can often resize pieces to fit your needs.

I hope you come to the party and enjoy the comradery, food, shopping, and having your photo taken.  Judie is having a Shutter Box Photo Booth set up for added fun and in the spirit of celebrating girls!

Thank you Judie and Scott for your loving support and willingness to be with us and help us in this most difficult time.  “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” I Thessalonians 5:11

 

 At Abundant Trove we offer unique designs in handmade beaded jewelry.  This mother of pearl pendant necklace is an excellent example of what the pearl looks like in formation.  A pearl is formed by a mollusk  when an irritation enters the tissue (mantle) and the mollusk secrets a substance.  This process goes on and layers of secretions are formed around the irritant and eventually these secretions form a pearl.  A mollusk may produce more than one pearl at a time.

This is the backside of the mother of pearl pendant and you can see the shell of the mollusk. 

Pearls continue to be valued for their rich hues of  shimmering colors from white, cream, gray, blue, yellow, green, black,  lavendar, and mauve.  Pearls can vary in size  from that of a tiny seed to the rare size of  one that can fit in the palm of your hand.  Pearls are mainly used in jewelry adornment because of their natural beauty and sheen which have made them highly desirable and popular with women.  Pearls are a favorite material for me to use as they so elegant and can stand alone in design or become such beautiful accents  alongside a semi-precious stone design.

At Abundant Trove we can create unique designs in custom crafted jewelry.  This beaded pendant necklace is made with mother of  pearl, peridot gem stones,
white quartz, freshwater bronze and cream pearls, generous sterling silver surrounds the pendant and is detailed, streling silver beads, and sterling toggle closure.  Please Contact Us if you are interested in a unique jewelry design. 

Abundance is a lovely strand of freshwater pearls just for you!

This darling handmade beaded children’s jewelry bracelet celebrates life!

The custom crafted jewelry design has a sterling silver butterfly at its center.  Papillon in French means butterfly.  The butterfly is a symbol of life.  It is amazing to watch the transformation of the caterpillar to a  miraculous butterfly.  This beaded bracelet celebrates the miracle of life and is made with freshwater pink and cream pearls, Swarovski crystal, sterling silver beads, and a sterling silver heart clasp.

The pearls have special meaning as well.  Each girl just like each pearl is uniquely beautiful in formation.  The cream pearls represent purity and the pink ones are for femininity.  The over all design of Pink Papillon is one of sentiment, beauty, and to celebrate the special life before you.

We gifted a special girl in our life with this bracelet when she was in fourth grade.  She recently visited us and brought the bracelet for me to add a couple beads and restring as she wears it daily and it was getting a little snug for her eighth grade wrist.  I was thrilled she treasures the bracelet so much!  This pretty beaded bracelet makes a wonderful gift and I can custom size it for the precious girl in your life.  Many women love the butterfly symbol and I can size this bracelet to fit or custom craft a unique design using the sterling butterfly for you.
