Ori-Janel Creations at Kids Fashion Show Event

Ori-Janel Creations had the honor of being in a fashion show this past weekend in San Diego, CA.  Our jewelry was the only thing we brought with us this, since it was involved in the fashion show itself.  The Designs By Teagann in the fashion show wore Ori-Janel Jewelry!  Teagann's designs were amazing and inspiring.  Jewelry to match along with additional jewelry gifted at the end as well.  Ori-Janel was the only vendor at this honorary show and got to set up our additional jewelry for sale as well.  So much jewelry involved and can be bought in our Etsy shop at:

Only Ori-Janel jewelry was involved in this show at this particular event due to space and travel issues of getting all products to the show.  Look for us at upcoming craft shows around San Diego areas and also shop in our store on

Special thanks to Greg Nickel and Designs by Teagann for having us out to this wonderful event.

Newest Jewelry Sets in Shop

I'm still fairly new to extended jewelry making that gets more involved than I have in the past.  Recently made these sets and one of them has chain beading that turned out really nicely.  Always learning new techniques and lately I love to add chain to beadwork chains as well.  Very fashionable and alluring to my eye.  Hope it is to yours as well.

Purple and Gold Set beadwork and chain necklace.  You can buy it in my Etsy shop here:

I also have a passion for charms.  I have a ton of them and still not enough time or ideas to use with them.  I made this one on a silver plated chain with skull and bones and matching earrings.

Thrifty Bead Storage Idea

So I went to the dollar store recently and saw a 7 day pill holder, and right away it reminded me of the bead holders I have for my jewelry making.  I bought the 7 day color pill holder (color picture below) and put my beads in it just as the ones you can buy in the craft stores.  (below)

Just an idea I had since I got to the dollar store all the time, and it worked just as well.

Happy Craft Making!

Ori-Janel Creations to be in Fashion Show

Ori-Janel Creations will have the honor of being in a kids fashion show coming up.  We will have a booth set out for selling our jewelry creations along with the models wearing the jewelry in the show.
Come out and support the creative artists involved in this show.  Free admission and family friendly event.

Newest Jewelry Creations

I love making jewelry and feel I need to stay diverse in what I make, since the sky is the limit on choices in making your own jewelry.  I work with what I have and am still learning to continuously make different designs using various supplies.  Recently I have made the following jewelry that will be included in an upcoming kids fashion show in San Diego, CA. (what is not sold by the event, all jewelry is available for purchase in my Etsy shop.

I bought some plastic fruit charms, that I absolutely adore, and made a whole set that includes earrings, bracelet and necklace.

Faith, Hope and Love are something we should all have and remember to get us through our days.  I made a set of each in gold and silver tone, with matching earrings.

I love lockets too and these I made 2 silver ones.  Silver plated chain and locket to add your own photos into.

Silk chord necklace with hanging key charms turned out so cute.  
Matching beaded earrings to make set.
