Exciting New Items

Hello again everyone and I hope you are getting into the holiday spirit as it is quickly going to be upon us. I have so many exciting new items in my shop - all just in time for your holiday shopping needs!

Here are some of my new creations as well as the links for you to shop:.
This is a perfect gift set of 2 stretch bracelets composed of colorful agate gemstones and black onyx:
Shop for this: Agate/Onyx Bracelet Set 

This is another stretch bracelet set with a Southwestern flair - perfect for pairing with jeans:
Shop for this: Southwest Turquoise and Red Jade Bracelet Set
Stretch, elastic-style bracelets are so popular and affordable at this time and they add a wonderful pop of color to any outfit. Men and women are wearing this style type of accessory and here is a tip for prolonging the life of your stretch elastic-style bracelets.
TIP: When putting on and taking off avoid pulling from just one side, which could can cause uneven stretching. Its best to roll it on of your arm in a rolling, funnel motion. This can be done by putting together your fingers so that they are touching the tips, then with your other hand gently slide the bracelet on over the fingers, knuckles and then onto your wrist evenly. When taking it off also its best to follow this funnel motion. I hope this helps you get enjoyment from your accessories for a long time to come.
Here are two holiday card choices (of several that I offer this year) that would be perfect to send to your friends and family:
Shop for these: Red Daisy Holiday Cards
Shop for these: Winter Greens and Pine Cones Holiday Cards
I have many colorful photographs that I sell matted and ready to frame some with inspirational quotes such as these:

10 Reasons Why Your Wardrobe Needs Handmade Jewelry

10 Reasons Why Your Wardrobe Needs Handmade Jewelry
(Original Post By Leslie Patrick of SWCreations)
Please visit my handmade jewelry shop Just for Joy Creations Shop
Walk through any mall in America and you’ll see a treasure trove of jewelry. A kaleidoscopic array of baubles, bling and accessories cascade from every shop window, their inanimate voices practically screaming “buy me”! Trouble is, that while these pieces may look nice and the price may even be appealing, there are various hidden factors involved when making a purchase from a chain or department store. Poor quality and unethical working conditions is just the tip of the mass production iceberg, yet are factors that pleasantly disappear when you choose to buy handmade, and domestically crafted beaded jewelry. Choosing handmade accessories is a fashionable decision you can feel good about–read on to find out why.

Top 10 reasons why you should buy handmade today:
  1. Higher Quality. In general, handmade beaded jewelry is of a more superb quality than mass produced items found in your typical chain store, thus handmade items tend to last longer and wear more gracefully. Artisans who craft their work in small batches place great care and consideration into each bracelet or necklace they create, ensuring an end product that will be a valuable addition to your collection for years to come.
  2. One of a kind. When you purchase handmade jewelry from a small artisan, you are guaranteed that the item you are wearing exists nowhere else on the planet. You can revel in the unique collection of beads that came together to create the specific piece you now treasure–a feeling you simply can’t capture with mass-produced jewelry from a chain store.
  3. Supporting small businesses. When you choose to buy domestically, you are investing in the American economy. Small business owners too often close their doors in the face of competing with products mass produced overseas. Don’t let this happen! Buy your beaded jewelry locally!
  4. Supporting the arts. Purchasing handmade beaded jewelry is an investment in the arts. Jewelry making has been a craft for thousands of years–from the ancient Egyptians to the Greeks and Romans–and it is still going strong today. Investing in handmade jewelry crafted by local artisans ensures this vibrant and beautiful skill is carried on through future generations.
  5. Custom ordering means countless choices. Want a necklace made from your children’s birthstones? Need a pair of earring to match the bridesmaid’s dress for your best friend’s wedding? When you choose handmade beaded jewelry, the possibilities for design and color suddenly become infinite turning your beaded jewelry dreams into reality.
  6. Makes gift giving easy. Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Christmas and birthdays suddenly become a lot simpler when you have a go to source for handcrafted beaded jewelry. From earrings to pendants, choose from an array of premade accessories or concoct a special gift of your own creation to dazzle your loved one.
  7. Repairs are a breeze. Chances are that your favorite piece of jewelry is probably going to get some wear and tear. With handcrafted jewelry, there is a good chance that you can return to the same artist for repairs–not likely with something you bought at the mall.
  8. A face and a name. Most of the time, it is impossible to know who creates the things we buy. So wouldn’t it be nice if on occasion you could put a face and a name to a product? When you buy from small artisans, each piece comes from the heart of the artist who created it, allowing you to feel more connected with the jewelry you choose to wear.
  9. More for your money. Sometimes the prices for mass produced items are cheaper than handmade items, while sometimes the opposite is true. But even if you do spend slightly more on a handcrafted item, the long-term quality you receive will be well worth the extra few dollars you shell out initially.
  10. Love and care. When an artisan handcrafts a piece of beaded jewelry, they are pouring into it their creativity, passion and love. So when the person who creates a work of art truly cares about the creative process, the beauty shines through uninhibited making a stunning piece of beaded jewelry that much more enviable.
