Happy holidays! Elegant Insights Braille Creations has a glittering collection of braille jewelry gifts this season, along with fun accessories for everyone on your list.
We've put together this gift guide, organized by price, to help you pick the perfect present for all your friends and loved ones.
Gifts under $25.00
Our Vain Cane Mobility Cane Charms are a fun flash of style for your white cane. We have lots of options from which to choose, in both "blingy" and gender-neutral styles.
Our Zippity-Doo-Dot Zipper Pulls come in a set of two! The clip onto the metal tab on a standard zipper. Or, you can attach them to a fabric or leather loop or cord. Each set comes with two pulls, each with a different braille word. Choose from leaves, discs, hearts, and more. Our braille zipper pulls look great on jackets or tech bags, or on anything with a zipper!
Great gift for the guys! Our Spot-on Military Style Dog Tags are just like the ones the men and women of our armed forces wear. They are available in brass, copper, or shiny steel, and have a rolled edge. We can attach them to a 24 inch long ball chain for use as a necklace, or we can put them on a carabiner clip with a split ring for keys. Best of all, the tags can accommodate up to 2 lines of up to 7 braille characters per line, so you can request a name, date, or little love note.
Gifts from $25.00 - $50.00
What's more perfect than a heart? Our "I love you" necklace is available in your choice of 3 metal and gemstone combinations that will make her heart beat a little faster. Choose brass with lavender jade beads, copper with rose quartz, or steel and aluminum with blue agate and hematite beads. Want matching pieces? See the set, below.
Is your gift recipient at one with the universe? Our Desert Zen purse charm is brand new, and nothing short of a work of art. It's filled with the symbolism of peace and harmony, such as an ankh, a sun charm embossed with "spirit," and a large medallion at the bottom with "namaste" in braille. Featuring a goldtone clip at the top, and a smouldering spectrum of warm desert toned gems along the chain, this purse charm is as beautiful as it is stylish.
Have an activist on your list? Our Touch of Authenticity bracelets have a message with meaning. Choose "pride," "resist," "stand strong," or "imagine." All done in shiny stainless steel with unisex styling.
Gifts over $50.00
When you want to give the "it" gift, we have beautiful jewelry suites that include multiple coordinating items. The "Love Always and Forever" 3-piece set consists of our "I love you" necklace, mentioned above, a single heart charm bracelet that says "always," in grade 2 braille, and a pair of heart leverback dangle earrings that say "always" on one earring, and "forever" on the other, in grade 2 braille. Gorgeous!
Does she love all things autumn? Our Autumn Abundance necklace features a stunning combination of copper, brass, deep forest green and autumn aubergine beads, along with pine cones, acorns, and leaves in different shapes and sizes on a copper chain with a toggle clasp. A cornucopia of iconic autumn elements, and of course, there are several coordinating pieces, sold separately.
The Butterfly Dreams Necklace and Earrings set is a sweet reminder of life's most meaningful moments. Is she undergoing a metamorphosis? A new job? A new home? Our pretty brass butterfly floats on a brass cable chain, and is embellished with sky blue and white faux pearl beads, blue crystals, and the word "dream" in grade 2 braille. A pair of baby butterfly earrings are a perfect match.
