Looking for a truly personal gift to give someone you care about this season? A Bel Air mom has the perfect gift for the special girl in your life, whether she’s your daughter, your wife or your mother. Debi Arbucias began creating custom beaded bracelets for fun after her daughter was born four years ago. But when friends starting noticing the unique designs of sterling silver and Swarovski crystal beads she and her daughter wore, they wanted them for themselves. Now Arbucias has a bustling little beading business she calls Precious Little Jewels. Every design is customized for its owner using only the finest quality materials including sterling silver and Swarovski crystals. Each sale starts with a conversation about who the gift is for and the reason for the gift and the creativity begins between Debi and her customers. She offers several suggestions and the perfect gift is created. She can make the design bold and chunky or delicate and petite depending on the wearer’s style. She can add a set of matching earrings. She can personalize it with beads that spell out a name. Or, she can personalize it with charms that hold a special meaning. She added a cross and a heart to a memory bracelet she made as a gift for a woman who suffered a tragic loss in her life. A grandmother showing off her new bracelet, where each child’s birthstone is placed into a design, will bring back special memories and creates a special piece she will be proud to wear and share for years. She’s made bracelets with baseball glove charms for a Little League mom and a bracelet with a four leaf clover charms for a woman lucky in friendship…to name a few.
“It’s not like you selected something off a store shelf,” says Arbucias. “It represents someone’s life.”
She says her bracelets make great gifts for special occasions in someone’s life including, Making Honor Roll for the 1st time, New Mommy’s, The loss of someone special, Sweet 16 birthdays, 21st birthdays, Infant christenings, First baby bracelets … to name a few.
“Keepsake bracelets are hugely popular,” Arbucias says.
It usually takes about two weeks to make a bracelet to order, so if you want to give one as a birthday or Christmas gift, be sure to contact Arbucias ahead of time. On occasion, rush orders can be accommodated.
Prices start at $38.
“Each piece is as unique as the individual,” says Arbucias.
