I am so, so excited to introduce my newest line of jewelry, Simply Change! This line features coins from all over the world, stamped with words or phrases and strung on a variety of mixed metal chains. I will add pretty beads and charms sometimes as added accents. Every piece is truly one of a kind!
I was inspired to make this line for a variety of reasons. One being the quickly rising cost of sterling silver. I still love, love sterling and will continue to work with it, but I want to offer jewelry in a more affordable range as well. I was also inspired by seeing the many beautiful and interesting coins from around the world. My son is a coin collector and I began taking notice of some of the coins. Without doing a thing to them, some of them are so beautiful! I started collecting them myself and have had dishes of them sitting around for months just waiting to be used in some manner.
I wanted to incorporate what I have been doing, making custom and personalized jewelry but with a twist. That's where these old coins come in! I want them to be talismans of sorts. Talismans are objects worn to bring specific qualities into your life, such as strength, happiness and protection. I have been stamping powerful words and phrases onto sample coins and will offer these for sale. But I will also take orders for custom and personalized pieces...I will stamp whatever you like--be it powerful words, names, dates, anything unique and meaningful to you.
I hope you like my newest line! You can go to my Etsy site to see the current coins I have listed at Juella Designs Etsy Shop. I will be listing new ones all the time.
