GaHooleTree ArtFire Studio Now Open!

Take a peek at my newest boutique, GahooleTree, located on ArtFire. My latest work is the Earth Elements collection for Fall/Winter 2010.  The Ga'Hoole Tree Earth Elements collection features gorgeous gemstone treasures coupled with sterling silver in its raw state. These amazing pieces offer plenty of carat weight at an incredible price! Sterling silver accent pieces are handforged, hammered and aged for a mysterious primitive "earth elements" aura.

GahooleTree Artisan Jewelry is 100% handmade in Toronto by designer Anna Lee Husband.  Custom work is welcome!  Email Anna Lee  with your design ideas for a prompt quote.  Anna Lee will gladly develop your custom design, or if you like an existing creation with a twist here or there... that can easily be accommodated and the design will be replicated with swaps per your gemstone &/or colour specifications.  All Ga'HooleTree designs can be customized and coordinating pieces are almost always an affordable option.

Pandora Galore at Ga'HooleTree Artisan Jewelry Toronto

At Ga'HooleTree artisan jewelry we've been offering customized pandora styled jewelry adornments for quite some time.  Our selection of unique quality pandora components is extensive.  Whether you're looking for authentic limited edition beads bearing the pandora hallmark or the much more affordable copies, we have what you want.  And like everything else from Ga'HooleTree these items are handmade in Toronto.

Above are studio shots from a project that wrapped up on Friday.  This particular pandora styled bracelet was priced at $149 usd.  The listing included a large sterling cuff with screw off removable ends, 3 genuine ALE beads, one genuine 925 sterling silver crystal laden charm and oodles of 925 core lampwork filler beads and tibetan silver spacers as shown. 

Having prepaid (this item sold through our SassyDLite shop on etsy which is soon to be closed), the customer asked for a few colorway variations.  After reviewing the emailed proofs, the red bracelet was eventually chosen.  We spiced up this "starter" gift collection by adding a red jade dangle, a genuine ruby dangle and a genuine blue sapphire dangle (this item will be gifted to a wearer whose birthday was last week). 

Email with your color and charm requirements for a prompt quote.  I am always glad to accept any prepaid custom commission.

Check our Artfire shop for more gorgeous pandora items available fall 2010!

How to tie your Pandora Lariat

How to tie your Pandora Lariat

Use One Pandora Lariat for this design.

  1. Double the lariat in 1/2 to form a loop at one end.
  2. Thread the loop through a Pandora charm. Thread the charm towards the end of the bracelet.
  3. Leave an open loop at one end.
  4. Tie two knots, one of either side of the charm.
  5. Thread another charm.
  6. Tie another knot.
  7. Continue this sequence to add as many charms as you like.
  8. Tie a knot behind the last charm (so that every charm has one knot on either side of each charm).
  9. Wrap the bracelet around your wrist.
  10. Thread the metal ends through the loop at the opposite end.
  11. Tie a knot at the end to fasten the bracelet in place.
 It is best to tie the knots firmly, but not too tightly.
