Holiday Gift Guide: A Cherry on Top - Handcrafted Creations

Saturday, November 02, 2013

A Cherry on Top - Handcrafted Creations is owned by a personal friend of mine, one who is very creative and talented. Her name is Brenda and we have known each other for about three decades now. She is the mother of three beautiful children and yet somehow manages to work full-time and fulfill custom ordered stainless steel hand stamped jewelry, crocheted items and more. The fact that she was up and about within a matter of days of giving birth to her third-born simply reinforces my belief that she has super powers. The woman doesn't stop. Check out this adorable pumpkin hat she made recently: 

For review, my friend sent over a personalized hand-stamped family tree necklace which would make an excellent gift and is therefore featured in this year's Holiday Gift Guide. Not only did she stamp the names of both my children, she added a beautiful tree charm and Swarovski birthstone charms to match their month of birth.

The base price for stainless steel hand-stamped necklaces is very reasonable, costing only $20. If you want to add a charm, it is an extra $3 and Swarovski crystal charms are an extra $2 each. Corded bracelets cost $15 and beaded bracelets are $20 with the same add-on options. Shipping costs are generally $5 within Canada and $10 to U.S. addresses. You can also add a tracking option which is an extra $5 for Canadian orders. Here is a small sample of charms from which to choose:

To place an order, visit her Etsy shop A Cherry on Top Crafts and be sure to follow A Cherry on Top - Handcrafted Creations on Facebook for updated photos.
