Wired Gems in Christ

Wired (adj.):
• Reinforced by wire (for strength)
• Bound with wire
• Connected (to a network)
• Excited

Gem (n.)
• Jewel
• Highly prized/loved person

Each and every one of us is a precious gem in God’s eyes, and we’re connected ‘through Him, with Him, and in Him.’

THE CALLING 2008

I felt a calling to make rosaries. I had no clue how to do this, but the Holy Spirit guided me.

Through books, online tutorials, and lots of practice, I learned how to make rosaries, giving them to family, friends, and for 40 Days to Life.

RISING from the ASHES 2018

On October 16, 2017, a fire consumed my house and business. I evacuated with all but one cat, and the clothes on my back.

I had been planning to move, so luckily, I had most of my photos, and various odds and ends in storage... but the majority of my belongings - gone.

But as Christ has taught me, one must put one foot in front of the other, and carry on.

After losing all of my beads, charms, chain, wire, etc., I decided that now is the time to do what I love best - working with wire.

REBUILDING ONCE MORE 2021

For the last two years I’ve been homeless with my pets. Why homeless? Because I didn’t want to give up on my beloved animals, two whom have been with me from before the fire.

WIRED on WIRE

All French hooks, kidney ear wires, links, findings, and most of the chain at JC Heart, is created by my hand, using wire.

God bless you, and thank you for visiting.

Do you have a rosary that is broken? If it's from JC Heart Designs - We will repair it free of charge. If it's not from JC Heart Designs - We will repair it for materials cost only (no labor.) Buyer is responsible for shipping on rosary repairs.

The rosary is such a powerful prayer - to both our Mother, and to us.


♥️ SILVER and GOLD

SILVER FILLED is 5% or 10% silver. It is thicker than silver plate, and lasts up to 5 years when handled properly; i.e. cleaning. It tarnishes like sterling silver.

STERLING SILVER is 92.5% silver and the core is copper hence the reason sterling tarnishes over time. But it can be cleaned.

ARGENTIUM SILVER is 93.5% silver. It’s whiter and brighter than traditional sterling silver and has a built in anti-tarnish agent. When it tarnishes, simply wipe off with a polishing cloth or swifter sheet. You can even use your fingers - just rub them over the silver. Plus, Argentium silver is recycled silver.

14 KARAT GOLD FILLED comes in both yellow or rose and is thicker than gold plate. Also known as rolled gold, it can last a lifetime. It will not chip or rub off, and it won’t tarnish. The gold is electro-bonded on, not plated on.

♥️ STAINLESS STEEL

Our products are made with 304 stainless steel. There are several types of stainless steel, not all of them are the same.

304 stainless steel is what cooking ware and utensils 🍴 are made with and contain 18% chromium and 8% nickel.

316, 316L stainless steel is surgical grade and is made with 17-19% chromium and 13-15% nickel.

If you’re allergic to nickel, skip stainless and surgical steel.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

♥️ CUSTOM ORDERS

If you are interested in a custom order, please send us a message. We have done several custom orders - jewelry, rosaries, magnets - for all ages. If you’re unsure as to what you want, we can send you a questionnaire/custom order form that will help you decide.

♥️ PERSONALIZATION

Coming soon

♥️ DO YOU OFFER STRETCH BRACELETS?

Unfortunately, we do not. After using various types of elastic, knotting them differently, using glue, we’ve found that they do break.

We cannot offer a repair warranty for stretch bracelets, and we cannot knowingly sell something that can potentially break and cause harm.

Our alternative are memory wire bracelets - coiled beaded strands that wrap around your wrist without the use of a clasp, and these don’t break.

♥️ WHAT LENGTH OF EARRINGS SHOULD I BUY?

The length of earrings will depend on your preference, but it also depends on the length of your hair.

Typically ladies with shorter hair, prefer their earrings to be 1 - 1 1/2” or shorter in length. Whereas ladies with longer hair prefer longer earrings.

If you’re unsure about the length of the earrings you’re interested in buying, you can hang a string from your pierced hole(s) in your earlobe to see how long the earrings will be.

Or if you have a favorite pair of earrings, you can measure them to get a rough idea of how long you like your earrings to be.

If you see a pair of earrings you love, but they’re too long for you, message us and we can work together on how to create a pair that’s similar but shorter for you.

♥️ WHAT STYLE EARRINGS DO YOU HAVE?

1. Wrapped gemstone post earrings that sit on your earlobes

2. Wire wrapped drop earrings in herringbone weave, caged bead style, single twisted wire, coiled wire, and a chaos of wire wrapped around the bead.

3. Charm drop earrings

4. Cluster which if you can imagine a cluster of grapes 🍇 this is what this style looks like.

5. Vines - which is a series of little “branches” with beads.

6. Wire shapes such as: teardrops, leaves, diamonds, hearts, etc. and wire critters such as: cats, butterflies, dragonflies, etc.

♥️ WHAT ARE THE NECKLACE SIZES?

CHOKERS are 14” to 16” and fit snugly around your neck.

PRINCESS is 18” and hangs to about your collarbone.

MATINEE is 20” and will hang to just below your collarbone, whereas 22” will drape to above your breast.

OPERA is 28” to 34” and hangs to about your navel. These can be wrapped around the neck twice.

ROPE is 40” or longer and sits below your navel. These types of necklaces are usually wrapped around the neck a few times.

All of the necklaces at JC Heart Designs are measured with the clasp included. (This is not so with other jewelry businesses.)

♥️ WHAT SIZE/LENGTH BRACELET IS RIGHT FOR ME?

If you have any bracelets you love, you should measure these and the length will give you a good estimate as to what size/length you prefer. However, the size of the beads will make a huge impact to the overall length. The larger the bead, the longer your bracelet needs to be.

To measure the diameter of your wrist, lay a string (not yarn), a tape measure or ruler on the underside of your wrist, and measure from left to right (or right to left.)

To measure the length of your wrist, use a string (not yarn) or tape measure and measure the circumference. You’ll want to add 1/4 to 1/2 inch so the bracelet will not be tight up against your wrist.

We will always disclose the size/length of bracelet along with what size wrist it fits.

♥️ WHAT IS CONVERTIBLE JEWELRY?

Here at JC Heart, our convertible necklaces can be shortened into a necklace and anklet or bracelet, or worn as one long necklace. If there’s a pendant - it will be interchangeable so you can remove it and use it with another necklace or as a zipper pull.

If our bracelets have toggle clasps, and you have another necklace with a similar toggle clasp - you can wear them together. This is why we switched over to toggle clasps on a lot of our jewelry to make it interchangeable.

You can string a bunch of bracelets together to make one long necklace. 🙂

♥️ TYPES OF EAR WIRES

JC Heart Designs offers many types of ear wires for your comfort. We handcraft our own French hooks, kidney wires, hoops, and posts using 93.5% Argentium silver wire, 14 karat yellow or rose gold filled wire and sometimes niobium. All of these metals are hypoallergenic.

We also offer stainless steel fishhooks, lever backs and post ear wires.

Some of our earrings are made with iron fishhook findings.

We will always put ALLERGY INFORMATION on our product descriptions. If you have any known allergies to any metals and the jewelry you want is not in a metal you cannot wear, please let us know. We can custom design it for you.

♥️ WHAT TYPES OF GEMSTONES DO YOU OFFER?

A rainbow of colors - dyed, heated, and natural stones.

• Amethyst
• Anhydrite (Angel stone)
• Aquamarine

♥️ CARING FOR YOUR JEWELRY

❌ AVOID WATER - No jacuzzis, pools, oceans, baths, or showers
❌ AVOID VIGOROUS ACTIVITIES - perspiration can ruin your gemstones
❌ AVOID CHEMICALS, LOTIONS, OILS - Dress, apply your makeup, perfume, style your hair and then put on your jewelry
❌ AVOID HARSH HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS - Don’t clean with your jewelry on; tell your significant other that s/he needs to clean. 😉
❌ DON’T GO TO BED with your JEWELRY on. Take it off and place it in its sealed bag, in your jewelry box, away from sunlight. Store in a cool, dark place. Wrap in cloth to keep gemstones safe.

See care instructions for gemstone cleaning. If unsure: use a soft, lint-free cloth to wipe down gemstones. Some gemstones cannot be submerged in water - they will disintegrate.
