About

Designing jewelry helps to bring smiles and relaxation to my body, mind and soul!

I may live with CRPS but IT hasn't taken ME!"
In fact, I have taken IT on and IT is losing the battle!

Where to Begin...
"Don't Let Your ABILITIES be Dimmed by Your dis-Abilities."

I am a wife, daughter, aunty, friend and a mentor to many, who loves to laugh & smile, enjoys being outdoors and has a huge creative side. The creative side of me decided that spreading awareness by my jewelry designs is what I needed to do. Do I have a favorite piece you ask-- well the answer is no, as I create from the heart so they all have a special feeling and meaning to me. My designs include all colors for all illnesses and syndromes plus key chains, a lapel pin, and charms along with my non-awareness jewelry.

In a split second, 15+ years ago working as a nurse and in the job of my dreams, I was injured, crushed my Sural nerve and was forced to retire much earlier than expected and thus the end of my 25+ year nursing career! Where is your Sural nerve you ask?... right behind your ankle bone. A horrible sound and excruciating pains rushed upon me and within seconds that life as an overachiever, who barely slowed to enjoy all of what God had blessed me with came to a screeching halt! That moment, that minute, that hour, that day and that month changed who I was physically and what I would be able to do from that point on. Almost immediately after my injury I noticed the all too familiar color and temperature changes and 24/7 "fire-poker" type pains that accompany this beast they now call Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/ CRPS, which is a relentless, chronic nerve pain syndrome. There is NO cure and there is NO permanent treatment for CRPS/RSD! It is what IT is and finding a treatment to help you cope and live with your pain is often not available. There are a few that go into remission with certain treatments and for those that that happens to-- they cherish those moments! As we all are uniquely created we ALL react differently to treatments and or procedures and what works for one doesn't mean it Will work for another.

One of my goals is to continue to Raise Awareness of what myself and others with this diagnosis go through on a daily basis; thus one of the reasons for making my CRPS/RSD Awareness Jewelry, Lapel Pin and Key Chains. I will donate a portion of the proceeds from my CRPS/RSD Awareness Jewelry, Key Chains and Lapel Pin to a fund-raiser that believe in my goal and/or to someone who endures this daily and is in need of some medical help and/or to research, when I find a site I believe in.

I now am able to find joys, smiles and rays of sunshine in the littlest things around me and what a beautiful feeling that is! My Christian faith along with a positive attitude and living with HOPE is what keeps me moving and grooving on this journey. God has given me this talent and it is my job to carry it through.

God bless and thanks for your interest in my designs.
Blessings of Peace and HOPE,
Handcrafted Awareness Jewelry.

Sizing details

How to determine the length for a necklace and bracelet:

OR
1. To Measure Your Wrist:
Wrap a flexible measuring tape or piece of string around your wrist right above the bone. If using string, mark it where the end meets then measure it with a ruler.
2. Measure your favorite bracelet to find the length you like to wear.

Care instructions

These are general guidelines that I recommend to help keep your jewelry staying and looking nice for a long time.

~Remove your jewelry before showering or bathing. Soap scum will build up on your jewelry and in time make it dull and dingy.

~Never wear your jewelry in chlorinated water. Chlorine interacts with metals and can ruin your jewelry piece very quickly.

~Jewelry polishing cloths work well to clean all jewelry. Using a paper towel or tissue can scratch your jewelry.

~Store your jewelry in an airtight bag or using an anti-tarnish strip as this will reduce the chance for it to tarnish.
