About TakeCourageDesigns

Sales 413
On Etsy since 2009

Take Courage Designs is about taking the beauty found in creation and translating it into wearable art!

Take Courage Designs actually has its beginnings in my daughter’s childhood fancies. She would often bring me “treasures” (rocks) from our driveway outside for safekeeping *do any of you moms out there relate? ;-)
My husband and I bought her a box of fossils and minerals, hoping to develop her interest in more “worthy” collectibles. As it turns out, it was we who caught the fever of hunting for and collecting the beautiful crystals and stones hidden in the ground! We are avid Rock Hounds, and as any of you who love this hobby knows, you also want to do something useful with them!

Thus, I taught myself to set them artfully in wire, using the ancient art of “wire-wrapping”. This technique allows the artist a great deal of latitude in creativity, without the need for the very expensive equipment required in cast settings.
When others admired and bought my jewelry, I began to sell it locally at shows.
An online shop then seemed to be a logical step!

The name “Take Courage” isn’t just a play on my last name, though, because I strongly believe in “paying it forward”. 10% of any profit is donated to Compassion International- a highly rated non-profit organization that is dedicated to eradicating hunger in children, worldwide.

Thank you for taking the time to read “my story”, and for your interest in Take Courage Designs Jewelry. I am dedicated to making and selling products of high quality and durability, using premium materials including natural gemstones, & noble metals such as sterling silver, Argentium silver, 14karat Gold-filled wire, solid copper, brass and bronze.

    Introducing Kelly Courage, my husband, and lapidary artist! I am using many of the cabochons he creates in my jewelry, but he is creating more than I can use. So I'm "sharing the wealth"! I have created a section within my shop to offer the beautiful gemstones he creates to others.
