National MS Society Silent Auction and Uni Q Creations

As we enter a new year with great expectations and accomplishments, Uni Q Creations, in association with The Artisan Group, was recently selected to gift a custom piece of jewelry to be included in a silent auction gift bag for the National MS Society. This will be our first gifting and also a very proud and honored moment for us. We gifted our Hematite and Yellow Topaz Swarovski Crystal Anklet. Topaz or Citrine is also the birthstone for November.
Hematite is often associated with one of the seven chakras. In metaphysics, hematite is the root base chakra and known as the "mind stone." Hematite promotes a sense of calmness and enables logical thinking. It also decreases the interference of negative forces and heals the mind, body and spirit.
These are able to be stacked one on top of another since the hematite is magnetic. There is no clasp to worry about due to the stretch cord I used. Custom and Multiple colors are also available, just let me know your color choices.If you’d like to receive a custom anklet with your choice of birthstone or cause color like the one we gifted to the National MS Society of Connecticut, Please visit our Etsy Shop by clicking the link below.

Uni Q Creations to Contribute to Exclusive Celebrity Gift Bag for Tori Spelling!!!

YES read that correctly. Some of my items will be going directly to "Tori Spelling."

Ok Let me explain..

So there I was just sitting at my computer, going through email after email and I see this name pop up. After blinking a few times, because clearly I must have read it wrong and finally realizing after a minute that I didn't...I SCREAMED! 

OMG! Seriously!!!??? The email said there would be a lottery for 30 names to be selected to be part of a Celebrity Gifting for Tori Spelling and and her family. HOW COOL IS THAT! Some of my handmade jewelry items would possibly be gifted to "The Queen Maven" herself. I was super excited just have my name in that hat. ok..time to is entered and must walk away knowing if it was meant to be it will happen.

So prior to this lottery there had been another one for a very BIG A-list actor who I shall not name. I didn't get picked for that one unfortunately. So on the day for this one to be drawn,  I walked away from my computer, sat down with my 3 boys and watched tv. You see last time there was a lottery, I watched the names be drawn and although I was sad my name wasn't picked, I was elated for the people who were.

Ok, so later on (now 3 days later after the original announcement), I sit down once again to go through HUNDREDS (no exaggeration) of emails and THERE IT WAS!!!  

"Congratulations!! Your name was selected this afternoon in the lottery for our special opportunity to gift celebrity Tori Spelling!" (insert Hyperventilation, over abundance of screaming and my boys looking at me like I've lost my

Again ...OMG!!!! Seriously?!!??! WOW!!!  

After a nights sleep (barely) and calming down a little (not really lol),  I gathered myself up enough to realize, I have to come up with something to make. My first thought was her daughter Stella and how they call her "Ladybug" or "buggie". So I came up with this bracelet with flowers and a little ladybug that sits on her wrist. 

This was just the start of a big roll of ideas that flooded my mind. Here are the others:

Birthstone Necklace For Hattie
Full Collection as Gifted to Tori Spelling and her family

So let me know what you think and Thanks for taking the time to read my craziness ;)

More to come...Stay tuned.
