Hi, I am Amanda of Queen Bee Designs by Amanda. I am a former first grade teacher and current mommy to two wonderful little boys. My husband, our children, our dog, tortoise and guinea pig are ALL boys. That's why I am the self proclaimed "Queen Bee" around here.
I am a scrapbooker and love to decoupage any and everything willing to cooperate, but I began my most recent crafty adventure in jewelry design after being given a handmade pendant with my boys' names on it. I was inspired by the beauty of the piece I had received, began researching supplies and practicing my techniques and the rest is history. I have been stamping children's names, bible verses, and favorite sayings on jewelry ever since.
Now, back to the basics. I make personalized sterling silver hand stamped pendants. (Whew! Say that twice!) Most of my customers are mommies, but I also cater to grandmas, dads and grads. A current client of mine has even commissioned me to create personalized gifts for her entire bridal party of twelve (men and women). We are working together to create some unique pieces her friends and family will certainly cherish for years to come.
Each of my designs includes an 18" sterling silver petite ball chain as well as the pendant of your choice. Swarovski crystals and freshwater pearls are shown in many of my designs and may be included with any design you choose. I encourage you to visit my blog and drop me a line to say hello. Your imagination is the limit, so take a look around and let's get stamping!
This simple washer design is one of my favorites (and my most popular seller). It is unique in its design with the standard "washer" shape and can be stamped with either small or medium sized letters. I have made sets of these for customers allowing each of their children to be showcased separately, or I can combine them as I have shown here. Attach a freshwater pearl or swarovski crystal for some added pizzazz and you are ready to go.
Two of the designs below are worth a mention with their unique domed shape and the handcrafted flower and distressed edges in the second piece.
The domed design is special to me with its quote stating "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." Stamped on a 1.25 inch sterling disc and them domed for a distinct look, this piece is $42 and a show-stopper whenever it is worn.
"Dream" is such a popular sentiment these days and one I stamp often. With its distressed edges and handcrafted flower, this 1" piece appeals to all ages and stages. As always, each design is custom, so if "Dream" doesn't suit you, let me know what does and I will work with you to be sure you get exactly what you were thinking of. $32
