Charitable Creations Sponsor Spotlight Review

I hope that you can see this necklace real good. I tried taking it under different colors and paper and cloth and this was one of the better ones. My camera is not doing it's job very good but I hate to always use a sponsor's picture because you don't see how it really looks plus they like it better too, if you use your pictures so that they know you are using it while reviewing. I don't put the necklaces on because hubby has an even harder time getting them to show up while I am wearing them, so I just said to heck with it, I will take my own!
Okay, I went and copied her picture for quality purposes only mine doesn't have the snowflake on it. Mmm, I should have waited I guess til she put out the Holiday collections but I did not have time to wait. I like mine just like it is because I can wear it really anytime, not just the Holidays. She makes some of the most unusual items! See, she turned the regular Two Peas in a Pod into a Holiday necklace by adding the snowflake! Like below is the bracelet version of my necklace with different colored pearls.  You can get your chains in lengths of 16 inches all the way to 24 inches and they come in 3 different styles, ball, cable and box.
All of her jewelry items come in this very nice round tin box and you will love it!
Maybe some people might think it's an odd choice, but it me it's different and unique and you want people to remember you and what better way than to have a jewelry tin box that is so you? Plus, they last quite a long time! All the jewelry pieces that I have from her are still in this little tin boxes and they hold up really well. I look to seeing them last quite awhile right along with the necklaces that I have gotten from her including the latest one!

This is another type of necklace that she can make and gosh, you will just have to go and visit her online website to see all the goodies she has. I also did a review of the Halloween earrings earlier, so whoever won those can tell you how awesome they are.  This is another one of my favorite sponsors who loves to be invited back to the Events that I have.  She is such a delight to work with and I hope that all of you will go and check her out, because she really does care about her jewelry and you can see it in the workmanship.

I also love that she does so much for charities.  She gives alot to charities and if you check out the Charity of the Month, she gives $1 for every dollar taken in that month to that charity. This month she is doing the Marine's Toys for Tots Charity so your money is well spent. She also gives to alot of military causes which is one reason way I don't mind reviewing her over and over.

All of you by now know that I am a military brat raised in the Army for 14 years, so it's in my heart, my blood and my life. We contribute to several military charities ourselves but they are mostly like the Paralyzed Vets and Wounded Warriors because nothing should be forgotten about a man or woman who gave their all for this country and be shunned for it. They should receive top dollar medical care and any programs that are out there to help them adjust to their new way of life.
This last piece I wanted to share is a pet's tag for your dog or cat. I haven't done them in the past so I thought I would show them real quick. I think of charities and my mind goes right to pets because they truly do love you no matter what you look like and unfortunately, what you do to them, so please if you know of someone abusing an animal, please speak up. Nothing is more horrible than doing something to a beloved animal that only adores you and loves you no matter what. Please show the same respect and love. Can you tell I have a Yorkie named Charlie and I would prosecute to the fullest extent anyone who harmed him. 
Here is what I found out under the About Us section:
Hello! My name is Shelly Medeiros and I am the designer and owner of Charitable Creations Jewelry. Here you will find high quality, simple, unique and meaningful keepsakes and gifts. All my items are handmade in my Massachusetts home studio using basic silversmith techniques. Sterling silver is my favorite metal to work with, but you will also find copper and brass material in some of my designs as well.  
These metals compliment each beautifully. All my designs may be personalized with any name/s, date/s, inspirational quotes or personal saying you choose. I have many fonts, designs and charms to choose from to make your piece meaningful to you. I stamp each letter and character by hand, no machines are ever used, so there will be slight differences in spacing and alignment. This is the charm of a hand stamped piece and it is what makes every piece one of a kind! I have many shapes and designs to choose from with new ones being added regularly.  
I handcraft a wide variety of hand stamped necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, guitar picks, key chains, pet tags and so much more. If you need something special that you do not see, please contact me via the contact page and I will be happy to work with you on creating your special keepsake I believe in spreading good fortune and in helping others and I know you do too.  
Every month I will donate $1 from every item sold to our monthly charity. There will be a different charity chosen for each month and the charity for that month will always be listed under our Charity of the Month tab. This month is Marine's Toys for Tot Foundation.
