Ruby Willow February and March

Hi.  Remember when I told you I had a goal to create one new item for my etsy shop every month?  Well, I have been keeping up on that goal in the creating department but not so much in the actually taking pictures and listing them online part.  Thankfully a couple of super adorable students helped me out with the photographs.  I'm so lucky to have a giant pool of cute models.  My new items are still not listed in my shop but here is a sneak peek for you!


The Ruffle Scarf

I only have them in teal right now but if you really want one in 
white, gray, tan, or chocolate brown, I can probably make it happen.
 This was a collaborative effort with my sister-friend, Emily.
I told her my idea and she said I MUST do it
and even invested in me by purchasing the initial materials.

They are thick with lots of texture but lightweight so that you won't
get overheated.  They are also super long so they can be wrapped for 
extra warmth in the winter, or loose for extra style in the spring and fall.

I love the one I made for myself and get tons of compliments on it
each time I wear it.  Emily gets endless compliments on her scarf, too.
  Let me know if you want one!  They will be $20 on etsy 
but if you pre-order by emailing me (jeanalinhart(at)gmail(dot)com)
you can have yours for $18 and free shipping!


Pretty Penny Necklaces

These are so fun!  These little pendants are made from pennies!
One side is a gloss covered pretty scrapbook paper pattern,
the other side is the actual penny.

It has been super rainy around here so I'm still working on clear
pictures of the individual necklaces but these should at least
give you an idea of what they look like.

I love this shot.  It's so "a penny for your thoughts?"  
Each penny dangles from a 16 inch
antiqued copper chain with a 4 inch extension chain, 
lobster clasp, and my signature leaf charm.

You can see the penny side here.  Abe's head is facing out and I think it would be
such a cute gift to find pennies with special years on them.
Like the year someone was born,or their anniversary,
when something big happened like a baby
or a new job or any other significant event.

They are simple and dainty and happy.  And affordable!  
I'm selling these Pretty Pennies
for $8 or two for $12.  
They've already been a big hit at a church craft fair.

I made some with the back of the penny showing 
but I think from now on I'm going to stick with Abe's head.  
I really do love that year idea.

And yes, it's perfectly legal to make jewelry out of money.
You just can't spend a Pretty Penny Necklace.
But why would you want to?

Tell me what you think!  I love your feedback and it helps me so much.  Thanks for looking at my newest creations.  I'll let you know when they are listed in my shop.  But if there's something you have your eye on let me know!  And don't forget about the Ruffle Scarf pre-order special!


  1. I love the necklaces. You are so talented! I love the scarves too, but I am a failure when it comes to knowing how to wear them properly. :-)

  2. B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L! You always amaze me with your creative genius!

  3. Totally cute scarf and i LOVE the Penny necklaces!!! I saw the pictures on facebook the other day and I was so hoping that you had made them.

    I'm thinking that you could do momma's necklaces with a penny from the child's birth year - do they look cute with a couple on a chain?

  4. Love the scarf and the necklaces. Beautiful work!

  5. You are always amazing me with your new ideas. I want to buy a teal scarf, maybe you could have one available when we see you for Grandparents day?

  6. I LOVE the penny necklace! Such a great idea!

  7. Can I have a penny necklace with a butterfly. Love the scarf too.
