Christmas is coming. It is a time for joy, fun and festivity throughout the world. In almost all the Christmas traditions and customs, giving gifts to loved ones is believed to be a great way to show your love and appreciation. Christmas without gifts is incomplete indeed. You can convey your love, care, concern and loads of well wishes, through Christmas gifts. A Christmas gift is unique and special to everyone who gives and receives them.

Finding a special gift for your loved one is not an easy task. One of the effective and most admired gifting options that truly warm the heart of the recipients is a ‘unique handmade gift’. Unique jewelry, handmade individually by creative artisans ensures that every piece is as individual as the person who wears it. Unlike mass produced items that are available in many local gift stores or jewelry shops, unique handmade jewelry makes a perfect gifting option for Christmas. That way, the recipients can always remember, show off, use, and be proud of the gift they received. By presenting unique handmade jewelry for Christmas, you are conveying the recipient their worth to you. Here are a few guides for a gift that can brighten this Christmas season.

For Family

Christmas is the perfect time to let your parents know how much you love them. But it is very difficult to select gifts that summarize your love towards them. However, a thoughtful and unique gift can speak volumes about how much you love and care them.

Some of the best gifting ideas for your dad include gorgeous, unusual presents such as Celtic braided leather bracelets, cufflinks, money clips etc. Celtic chokers, silver bracelets are more suitable for young dads, whereas Irish tie clips are more valuable for mature dads. You can surprise your mother with a gift from Celtic Love Knot jewelry line. A gorgeous necklace with the word ‘Mom’ engraved on the pendant will make any mom love it.

Grandparents have a special place in the family. They always appreciate being remembered and you don’t get a better occasion than Christmas to express that you are with them. Celtic Love knot, which represents infinity and the unending love can make them feel really special. Some other best Christmas gifts include real leaf pendants for your grandmother and Celtic pins and bookmark gifts for your grandfather.

For Friends

Celebrating Christmas without friends is unimaginable. For those who have been there with you in different situations – both good and bad, it is very important to show how much they mean to you by gifting them a personalized handmade gift.

What Makes Sea Glass Jewelry Become a New Rising Star?

June 9th, 2016 11:47 pm

Before we look at the reasons why sea glass jewelry becomes “a new rising star”, we need to know exactly what sea glass is. Often also referred to as beach glass, sea glass is pieces of glass which have found their way into the ocean and have been smashed up, pounded by the waves and rubbed by sand and pebbles. This process means that the beach glass is usually found in relatively small pieces with smooth edges and has a frosted appearance caused by the leaching of chemicals when exposed to sea water.

The glass can come from a variety of sources including beer bottles, old window panes, medicine bottles, drinking glasses or soda bottles to name just a few. These have either accidentally been washed out to sea by flood water, been discarded deliberately into the ocean as rubbish or ended up there as a result of ship wrecks.

Now you know what beach glass is, we can turn our attention back to the initial question of ‘what makes sea glass jewelry so popular’. Part of this popularity is the mystique of the glass. Some of the pieces were tossed away hundreds of years ago, only to wash up on shore today. Black glass, for example, has not been used to make bottles since the 1700s, so any of this color glass washing up on shore has been in the water for more than 200 years. Black sea glass is one of the most rare colors. It is part of our history, and makes one think that it is possible one of our country’s founding fathers might have chucked that bottle into the bay right after we declared our independence.

And even though people threw those bottles into the sea, the sea is giving something back to us. Those colored, frosted, smooth gems are a gift of sorts from Mother Nature. They are beautiful and hold a little bit of magic in them.

Finally, sea glass is such a happy part of so many people’s lives. How many people have fond childhood memories of hunting for sea glass with a mother or father long gone? It evokes memories of a happier, more innocent time.

The reaction of people who buy sea glass jewelry or receive it as a gift is almost always emotional and sentimental, because of all the happy memories it brings back.

It is these reasons why so many people are passionate about only using real sea glass for jewelry. Anyone can put glass in a rock tumbler and get something that looks almost like the real stuff. But it is not real. It wasn’t a bottle held by one of our ancestors. It never got polished and tumbled in the sand, it didn’t wash up on a distant shore waiting to be found. Real beach glass does hold a little bit of magic, and that’s why jewelry containing these little jewels is gaining popularity.
