Perfect! This was just right to go with my Halloween outfit for work! Well-made and looks great on. Requested a rose and a longer chain and my order was exactly as requested and shipped quickly. Included a pair of matching earrings as a gift, thank you so much! Would definitely buy from again. :)

I ordered a few things from this shop! I just want to say thank you for the matching ring to go with this necklace! I love it! I'm so glad I ordered both necklaces in the different colors! I definitely recommend this shop! The owner is great! And the jewelry rocks! I can't wait to sport it on my wedding day!

Connorinspiresamy---Handmade Jewelry with a Special Purpose

I am inspired by my son Connor. He is disabled and has special needs. He is the love of my life and I would have no inspiration without him!
I started making Jewelry to help pay for things Connor needs that Medicaid and other sources doesnt cover. I cant work because Connor is to Fragile to go to school.

Alot of people ask me what r Connors conditions I will tell u more about my little miracle.His b-day is July30th 2001 Connor was born with severe congenital hydrocephalus.His head size was 52 cm at birth A child is usually born with a head size of about 25 cm. He also has several other extremely rare brain disorders; unilateral closed lip schizencephaly,partial agenesis of the corpus callosum,neural migration,cortical dysplasia,hypotonic cerebral palsy,seizures,lennox gastaut syndrome,reactive airway disease,dysphagia,he has a g-tube ,fundo,and a vp shunt he is nonverbal and cant walk,sit up,or hold his head up for more than 5minutes at a time, despite all of this Connors vision is great!He is very happy and i think hes got alot more going on in his head than he gets credit for i think he is so smart,silly and a complete joy to be around. Its what he can do that matters not what he cant! He struggles and fights daily to do simple things we take for granted on a daily basis, He cant go to school because a common cold could land him in the ICU. He is kinda like a bubble boy and cant leave the house unless he has to to go to his many drs appts. He has 10 doctors currently. He has taught me more in his 12 years of life than anyone in my 34 years has. and he has done so without ever saying a single word. I have never been more proud of or in love with anyone in my entire life!

Connor inspired me to use my creativity to benefit him. I cant work but needed money for things that medicaid does not cover. I started making jewelry over 17 years ago but didnt stick with it but one day about 6 years ago I just pulled out the supplies I had stashed away and got to work making jewelry for the yardsale that my Godmother Freda had for Connor (to raise money to get him a van) I wanted to contribute somehow-well every woman likes jewelry right? I was able to raise some money and everyone really liked it--I started taking it tio the Childrens Hospital with me and the Connors nurses would buy it up! Then one of the told me about Etsy--when he was discharged that day I went home and signed up for our shop CONNORINSPIRESAMY The name just popped in my head and that was that. I make lots of different kinds of jewelry but really love victorian,vintage,gothic,cameos,and nature inspired pieces--I just buy what I like and just make what I see when I look at my stashes of supplies or a idea will pop into my head and I will make it! It has really turned into a passion for me and gives me something to do when my Connor is sleeping or playing on his own--I am home 24-7 I really only go to Drs appt and the store or to run errands.
I really hope u enjoy my shop as much as I have and find something that u will love to wear and just remember that every piece is made with love and inspired by the most amazing little boy/gift. The money is used for more supplies, Etsy shop fees,paypal fees, and to buy things Connor needs.

Please visit to learn more about one of Connors brain disorders called Schizencephaly. It is a little known about disorder that is rarely studied or researched and most doctors dont even know what it is. This web site raises money for research,and to help children like Connor that have this disorder--you can also meet lots of other amazing children just like Connor. Also you can learn more about Noah and his mother--the mom that started Noahscart with Adalilys mom--because she was inspired by her son Noah to raise awareness and raise money for research and help other children with the same
disorder. No donation is too small every penny counts!!

Shop policies

Last updated on October 9, 2014
This shop was originally set up by me for my son Connor to save up money to get his van handicapped.Connor has 12 doctors most of them 1 hour away from where we live so it so very important that we have a equipped van for him.We now have a van from etsy sales,a major yardsale and a bike ride ---It is not handicapped. But I am trying to get grants to accomplish that . So now Sometimes some of the money is used for jewelry supplies,insurance for our van,and other things Connor needs.Medicaid does not cover everything he needs and I cant work because Connor is to fragile to go to school and can only leave the house for doctors appointments.
I also enjoy making jewelry so much and want to share it with others.I use all the same top quality products as alot of the other etsy sellers I just dont charge as much because I want everyone to enjoy my jewelry not just those with fat wallets!

~~~~~~~~~INTERNATIONAL ORDERS~~~~~~~~~ (Canada not included)

Currently I am not listing international shipping in my shop because I need to discuss several things with international buyers before the order is made.
If you are a international buyer please contact me and I will set you up a custom listing. Remember it usually takes between 2weeks to 6 weeks for international orders to arrive.
I recently had to change the shipping price because the post office went up so high for their priority international rates--I am charging what they are charging me to ship the packages international. I only ship international packages (except Canada) priority because of the number of lost,and never received packages.
~~~~If you really want a item but dont want to or can't pay such a high shipping price I can take it to the post office and send it regular mail for $7.75 --but I wont be responsible for lost packages.There is no way to track a international package.So just convo me if you want it sent regular first class.

~~~~Depending on the size and how much you order for your custom order I may have to get a down payment but we can discuss this and do whats right for each individual buyer.

everyones skin reacts differently to different types of metals--If you buy a necklace and the chain leaves a green mark it does not mean that the chain is bad quality--I recently got a neutral feedback for a necklace and the chain I used is one of the highest quality and expensive chains I use--It was a hand oxidized solid brass chain--the color is the actual color of the chain not a plating-it has no chemicals or laquers used on it. so unfortunenatly her skin reacted to the brass and caused a green spot--If this occurs with your necklace and would like to send it back to me I can change the chain for you for no charge just convo me first.

If you see a item but would like another color etc just convo me for a custom order.
If you like a item and want me to make matching earrings,bracelet,ring,necklace or hair pins please convo me for a custom item.

Also if you see a item in my SOLD ITEMS section that you like but do not see it in my shop I may be able to make the item for you or a item very similar.Just convo me to discuss it.
