Since 1991, I've been incredibly blessed to pour my heart and soul into doing what I love.
That's 25 years of celebrating life & faith! So...

Deirdre Handcrafted Jewelry.

On Friday December 16, 2016 ground shipping is on us. Ho, Ho, Ho!

Our reminder to ourselves that with all the hustle and bustle this time of year that we still want to shine brightly (even when being snippy seems easier). Can you relate?

#14. "& Company"
Ever wonder what the "& Company" of "Deirdre & Company" stands for? The
"& Company" is simply all of you who support us! Family, friends, employees, suppliers, the stores who purchase our product, and everyone who has said a prayer for us. Thank you all! To celebrate all our partners, we've tagged some of our "& Company" groups in September on Facebook.
#13. Family First Company!
We celebrated families this September! This Company is run and operated by 4 different moms, all in different life stages with their kids, and so much of what we do celebrates our families. With a SIGH of relief, we gave a special back-to-school discount for all those moms and dads and grandparents and the "village" who help raise our kids (and then send them back to school! :) ).
#12. Blessing Others!
"Blessing others" is at the very heart of our mission statement. As mothers,we bless our children with our love. And rides to countless soccer games! As friends, we share meals, a sympathetic ear, and hugs as needed. But what to do when a tangible blessing is needed? (Drum roll please...) We are thrilled to formally introduce a new pricing bracket called "Blessing Others."
Put simply, quantity discounts are now available for "blessing others" with gifts and jewelry...
#11. Flores de Villa Warrior Bracelet
Crafted by the spirited ladies from Flores de Villa outside of Lima, Peru, these beautiful, intricate chainmaille bracelets are made by hand.

Partnering with these ladies, we have the opportunity to share in the creation of jewelry that is not merely pretty, but that empowers women to provide for their families.

, inspired by Washington Island, WI, and laid out in our
Recycled Glass and Blessing Bars!
#9. Adoption Celebration!
Adoption is near and dear to our hearts at Deirdre Handcrafted Jewelry; Deirdre adopted her beautiful daughter from Ecuador 9 years ago. At the time, there was not a lot of adoption jewelry out there, and for a soon-to-be Mom whose business is making jewelry, that was simply not a good situation! So Deirdre created her own line of
