Jewelry Gifts for Family Members to Enhance and Strengthen Bonds Between Family Members

Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Easter, Christmas, Birthdays, Christenings and Wedding celebrations help to bring families close together. Create long term memories while enjoying a meal together. Add finishing touches of the exchange of jewelry gifts.

Children especially become excited about receiving gifts on special celebration days. Family get together s on holidays are a perfect time for giving jewelry gifts to the babies and children in your family. Adults of course also enjoy gift giving and receiving.

Give a pair of cute, shiny 9k gold bunny rabbit earrings to the babies on first Easter suitable for wearing up to the age of 10. Teach the child to cherish the gift as her first family Easter gathering memento. Don’t forget the Easter Egg to give her along with the earrings.

When the Christmas family celebration rolls around add a bracelet to the gifts of the babies and children in your family. Each year try to make the bracelet jewelry for children “special” in some way as tradition to your family. Baby bracelets are one of the most popular Christening gifts. Choose gold or gemstones set into gold on bracelets. The timeless look of gemstones can be passed down generation after generation through the family babies.

Weddings in families are always memorable events. Choose pretty children’s necklaces for every little girl’s outfit. These necklaces can be kept for future weddings within the family. Keep them in separate special and pretty boxes only to be retrieved for the weddings in the family.

Teenagers enjoy receiving locket necklaces for birthday and Christmas jewelry gifts. Consider a heart locket charm hanging from a leather thong. The teenager will enjoy placing favorite photos of their friends and boyfriends within the lockets.

Babies look extra cute wearing little bead anklet bracelets for summer months birthday celebration gifts. Little girls usually enjoy seeing a beautiful bead and sparkling gemstone anklet bracelet around their ankles in summer seasons. Bead anklet bracelets make great gifts for babies and girls with birthdays in the summer months.

Mother’s Day offers us a time for giving a very special jewelry gift of birthstone rings, pins or necklaces having all her children’s birthstones on the piece of jewelry. You can give mother a pin one year and a ring the next year.

Maternity themed bracelets are special gifts to give to the expecting mothers in the family. “It’s a girl” bracelets are nice to give the expecting mother. Another popular maternity theme is a stork carrying a baby. You can usually find maternity themed jewelry on pendants as well. Give an engraved bracelet to the expectant mother with the word “Mother,” engraved on it.

Father’s Day is a jewelry gift giving occasion as well. You can find many different masculine styles and designs in sterling silver chain bracelets, tie pins, cuff links, watches and money clips. These types of jewelry gifts for dads are also nice to give on birthdays.
A gold or silver cross on a chain seems to be a traditional gift given within many families at Christmas, Easter, baby Christenings suitable for any member of the family from babies to grandmothers.

Never overlook the subtle memories and moments jewelry gifts create within the family. They serve as enhancements and help to strengthen bonds between family members.

Meet Mabeldangle earrings mysterious mabel

I created this pair of earrings in a mismatched pattern. The lampwork beads are 14 mm round in size. The lampwork delicate flower pattern/design can be seen as light flickers through the bead creating colors of red and orange from the inside as if there is a light burning inside the lamp shade. The outside delicate flower pattern can be seen as light flickers through the bead. The design shows up very well under camera light here. I used silver and antique bronze with this pair of earrings. It is a mis-matched pair of earrings which in my opinion gives them a more “vintage look” even though all beads and jewelry components are new.

Because of the artwork on these beads and the color combination I came up with for this project, they should truly become a “conversation” piece of art jewelry. I love the way the light shows through this bead flickering colors of red and orange here and there and showing the flower pattern design. They are a mysterious-looking pair of earrings.

When I finished this project I noticed how these earrings made a special statement about my own personality…….”a light burning from within that flickers to the outside off and on…..” just as the light burns from within this little bead like a lamp shade.

I am calling this particular line of earrings: Carmilita’s Mysterious Dangles. Each pair of earrings is given a female name beginning with the letter “M.” This pair is named “Mysterious Mabel.” I will be adding more colors. This is the only pair in this color.

I really had some fun creating this pair of earrings as I laid out all the beads on my mat and worked through the color combination piece by piece. You won’t find another pair like these anywhere unless someone else sees my pictures and creates a pair exactly like them. They are unique and one of a kind as of right now 7-16-14 at 12:35 a.m., which in my opinion is what makes handmade earrings so special.

They are put together well and should last as long as they are taken care of properly. They are lightweight. They hang from the loop one inch.
