Sons of Anarchy Bullet Necklace

Sons of Anarchy Bullet Necklace


Anarchy, a word which to many means different things to so many. 

For some, it means no enforced law or government and freedom without force.  To others, it means a society of individuals who enjoy and live in complete freedom without government.  With today being influenced by the TV series Sons of Anarchy a lot of people believe it means the absence of most cohesive principal; such as a common standard or purpose. 

SOA (Sons of Anarchy) aired originally in September of 2008.  The last season of Sons of Anarchy starts September 9, 2014, on the FX cable network station.  SAMCRO which is not a name but stands for Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original is on its last season.  

If you're a watcher of Son's, love Jax, Gemma, and all the characters of the Son's, then you need to own a Sons of Anarchy necklace originally designed by me, Julie Teeples.  I'm offering various caliber sizes of the Anarchy design.  Visit my site to pick your bullet necklace in the caliber you'd like, there are sizes for men and women.  You can even request a custom design for your Son's of Anarchy jewelry.

Harley Davidson Collectibles - 1994 & 1996 Beer Bottle Crown Cap Collection

In 1994 Labatt Breweries of Canada teamed up with Harley Davidson Motorcycles in a promotion  to give away five Harley Davidson XLH Sportster 883 Motorcycles.  A collection of 10 Harley Davidson beer bottle crowns (also referred to as caps) were designed, each having a different Harley motorcycle on them.
These 10 became the 1994 Labatt Harley Davidson crown collection.  The Harleys included on the caps for 1994 were;  Dyan Low Rider - Dyna Low Rider Conv - Fat Boy - Heritage Softail Classic - Heritage Softail Special - Road King - Softail Custom - Springer Softail - Ultra Classic Electra Glide - XHL Sportster 883.

In 1996 Labatt and Harley did it again and  a new collection of crows was released.  The collection contained 6 of the original 10 designs of 1994 plus 6 newly designed caps making the 1996 collection a total of 12 caps.   The Labatt Harley Davidson 1996 crown collection consisted of the following designs; Road King - Fat Boy - Softail Custom - Springer Softail - Heritage Softail Classic - Ultra Classic Electra Glide - Dyna super Glide - Dyna Wide Glide - Sportster 883 - Sportster 1200 Custom - Sportster 1200 Sport and the Electra Glide Classic.

I was luck to find some rouge beer caps from both 1994 and 1996.  These caps are from broken sets of both years.

I've made unique, one-of-a-kind, upscale necklaces and accessories from these caps.   I'll be releasing my designs on April 5, 2014.  You may contact me for availability of particular Harley designs or to reserve your piece.   These jewelry pieces make wonderful gifts for anyone who loves HD.

Once they are sold, they are gone forever.   These are original jewelry designs offered exclusively at .

2014 Color Palette

Pantone sets the color palette for artists and designers worldwide.  Many people shop for fashion, accessories, cars, and home d├ęcor based on the yearly color palette predictions and suggestions made by Pantone.

We must agree color is a part of our daily lives; it has the ability to engage the eye, create an atmosphere, and provide us with the feeling of joy, excitement and energy.

As an artist and jewelry designer I must be aware of color predictions each year along with any season color changes as well. Truthfully I admit I tend to stay with a safe or neutral color palette in most of my jewelry designs.  Why?  Because the neutral colors will always be there, everyone tends to love them, and they play well with most all the other colors out there. 

These are the Pantone 2014 colors

Both 2014 Spring and Fall color palettes use several neutral colors; Aluminum, Cognac, Cypress, and Sand.  You can see how well they look against most all other colors.

Using my jewelry as color is a great way to accent your wardrobe.  If you're a person who loves wearing beautiful, bright and bold color clothing, a jewelry piece accented with neutral color may provide just the right amount of balance or completion to your outfit.

If you're a person who tends to wear neutral or darker colors, a bit of color in a necklace or bracelet may do the trick to finish off your look without being "too" colorful.

Don't be afraid to mix several different pieces of jewelry together, a strand of old pearls with beautiful brass or copper chains and pendants.  Maybe a set of assorted beads accented with a simple chain and bullet necklace pendant.  A strand of pearls with a strand of crystals, and don't forget doing the same with your bracelets as well...I think you get the idea.  Have fun with the jewelry you wear.  Visit for an assortment of beautiful jewelry pieces to add to your collection.  Enjoy and let the jewelry you wear bring a smile to your face.

9 11, September 11, 2001 Time to remember Bracelet

9-11 will live in our minds, hearts and soul forever.  On September 11, 2001 four airliners where hijacked, destine for suicide attacks against the United States.  Two planes were flown into the World Trade Center in New York.  Another plane was sent crashing into the Pentagon outside of Washington.  The last plane crashed into a field in Pennsylvania.

Over 3,000 people died during the attack in New York,  that number doesn't include the hundreds of firefighters, paramedics, police officers and first responders who also lost their lives.

Over 125 civilians and military personnel lost their lives at the Pentagon. To that number include the 64 people on Flight 77 which crashed into the building.

All 45 people on board Flight 93 lost their lives when the plane crashed into a rural area in Pennsylvania. We will never know what plans the terrorist had for that flight.

2nd Amendment

The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States Bill of Rights 

The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States is a part of the Bill of Rights. The 2nd Amendment protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms.  This amendment along with others contained in the Bill of Rights was adopted on December 15, 1791. 

The wording of the second amendment (Amendment II) is as follow;

“A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

The Supreme Court issued two landmark decisions in 2008 and 2010, officially establishing the interpretation of the Second Amendment.  The Court ruled the Second Amendment protects an individual’s rights to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home within many longstanding prohibitions and restrictions on firearms possession listed by the Court as being consistent with the Second Amendment; District of Columbia vs. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008).  In 2010, the Court ruled the Second Amendment limits state and local governments to the same extent that it limits the federal government; McDonald vs. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025.
