Celebrate Life’s Special Moments with Silver Charms

One of my favorite aspects of creating is that when you place your hands on your silver charms, the complete project has a little bit of you in it. No two people will take the same material and create the same thing. Your life, your experiences, your desires become part of your creation. I wanted to create a wearable reflection of one of my favorite things in my life, my bike.

I ride my bike to work here at Nina designs every morning and when the weather is good I try to ride it everywhere I can. The experience always leaves me invigorated, optimistic and happy. Using our new bicycle charm, a stamping blank (with the phrase “shine on” stamped in the center), and a few small spangles, I created a charm bracelet that is distinctly me. I chose four strands of silk ribbon in some of my favorite colors; peach, raspberry, pale blue, and gray. These colors remind me of perfect summer days filled with blue skies and sweet, fruity desserts!

I can’t wait to wear my bracelet on a warm day, while I bike along the Bay towards one of my favorite picnic spots!

Me and my bike!

Shine On Bicycle!
