Recent Shop Updates

I’ve added a few things in the past week or so to the shop and thought I’d just do a small post showing off the newer pieces.

As always, I appreciate any links, or tweets or wall posts, etc. of my shop and/or items. In other words, if you want to share anything, THANKS! 🙂

All items available in the shop along with many others. And, as always, custom orders gladly accepted!

Chunky Red Hand Crocheted Scarf

Today we’re featuring another item in the PhoenixFunds Medical Fundraiser shop. A fun, chunky, red scarf!

This bright red scarf is hand crocheted. It’s approximately 66″ long not including 4″ of fringe on either end. Handmade scarf is also about 6″ wide.

The scarf is a fire engine or candy apple red. Rich, vibrant color. It’s hand crocheted and will make a nice, warm Autumn or Winter accessory. It’s pretty unisex and good for an adult, teen or even a child. Comes from a smoke-free home. Long enough to wrap it around your neck several times or double it up. (As shown in second photo.) Gives a neat, chunky look that’s very trendy.

Ready to ship finished product. You will receive the exact item shown!

All items in the PhoenixFunds shop are made by members of the Team. Proceeds go to paying medical bills for a hysterectomy surgery. Scarf available for purchase HERE in the shop!

Custom Birthstone Necklace

Your choice of glass pearls in birthstone colors lined in a row and strung on delicate sterling silver plated wire to form a simple, yet modern family necklace.

Perhaps you love my custom birthstone bird nest pendant but have too large of a family. Or, maybe you want to celebrate an extended friends and/or family. If you need more than 4 birthstones together in one piece, this is the perfect option for you!

You can choose between 5 and 12 pearl colors in any combination you would like. The first example shows five pearls (September, July, May, April and February.) The second example is actually the inspiration for this style. A customer needed nine pearls and asked if I could put them all in a line for her. (The months are November, September and October in that piece.) It was such a great idea, I decided to offer it to everyone!

Available custom made just for you in the shop HERE!

Kindness

Ever since being in the ER, I’ve had a whirlwind of emotions; fear, anxiety, anger, resentment but also gratitude, thankfulness, amazement and wonderment. With the exclusion of a very limited few who showed their ugly, inner true colors, almost universally, I’ve received the most positive support. Friends, family, acquaintances, and even strangers have been so generous with their support both vocally and financially.

Between donations of money or craft items to sell and other aide like links and awareness of my cause, I’ve kept my head above water these past few months. I was able to pay almost a thousand dollars in doctor bills before my insurance kicked in and since it has, have been able to pay my premiums and start putting a dent towards that deductible as well. I went from a situation that was impossible – raising money when down an income! – to one that, with help, has been kept not only alive, but truly thriving.

Today I was the recipient of another amazing blessing. A substantial donation putting me within arm’s reach of my immediate total surgery goal. (The breakdown is: $588 due to my doctor, $1,000 deductible and $948 for a minimum 4 months premium or total of $2536 bare minimum to raise.) I don’t know if this person wants to be named, but I wanted to publicly acknowledge their kindness. $1,000 was gifted to my fund today and brings my actual cash-in-hand total to an amazing $1,933!

Where government resources and supposed charity and assistance programs have utterly failed me and totally left me between the cracks, the kindness of a dedicated group of individuals has gotten me leaps and bounds closer then I ever thought possible. It’s because of each and every one of you that I’m still here, still fighting and still able to keep striving towards my goal. And ultimately, when this is all over and done with, my health and my ability to move on with my life better then before will also be because of all of you and your care, support, kindness and generosity.

It’s all too easy to think the worst of people and to look at the problems of the world and believe that everyone just sucks. But let me assure you there is still goodness in the hearts of many. There is kindness in the world and there are still people who care. I’ve been truly blessed with getting to experience this first hand.

The battle is not yet won and some days it feels like I will never be done with this, but I know we’re getting ever closer and in truth, it will be here sooner then it seems. And again, it’s only because of you – all of you who have supported me – that I am where I am.

I won’t lie, many days the whole thing still scares me and facing surgery is not easy. But knowing that I have such a solid support system in place and so many people behind me, really does make it a little easier to bear.

So thank you to everyone for helping me get this far. We’re getting so close now and days like this remind me that all things truly are possible – with a little bit of kindness.

Autumn Leaves – Multi Gemstone Tree Of Life Pendant

This tree of life pendant in sterling silver captures the vibrant colors of Autumn. Featuring a variety of natural gemstones, this unique piece lets you wear the beauty of Fall.

This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Hand hammered non-tarnish sterling silver plated wire frames and encircles the pendant and is then used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree.

This Tree features so many different gemstones! Included are Garnet, Amber, Red Coral, Red Goldstone, Citrine, Red Carnelian and Topaz. I blended them all together so there would be a riot of autumn colors! This Tree celebrates the changing of the seasons and leaves in a beautiful way.

Pendant available HERE in the shop.

Despite the hot summer temperatures, I felt a change today: an early morning coolness, crickets, slightly shorter days. The harvest will soon be with us and with it, frosty mornings and bright colors. Life is good!

Here in Florida, we’re still WELL in the grip of summer, but it’s nice to think about Autumn! Pendant is available in the shop HERE.

Full Moon

I relisted two of my very popular Full Moon Tree of Life pendants. Both haven’t been available in the shop for months so last night, I remedied that and made one of each!


Under A Halloween Moon – Tree of Life Pendant with Orange Pearl Coin Bead in Black Wire
Happy Halloween! This Spooky Tree of Life Pendant with bare branches in black wire under a full, orange moon. Perfect for the season but wearable all year also.

– and –


Once In A Blue Moon – Tree of Life Pendant in Silver Wire with Aqua Blue Pearl Shell
This is a unique take on the popular Tree of Life pendants I’m famous for. There are no “leaves” in this piece. Instead, it celebrates bare branches of a tree against a night sky.

Both are available right now in the shop. But only for as long as they last! This style is very popular but it’s kinda of a pain to make so I don’t make it often. It’s normally months inbetween availability to snag it when you can if you want it!
