Jewelry by Monika Schaefer

Some of the proceeds of all my jewelry sales go towards buying goats for those in need in Ghana. To read more, please see my Monika's Goat Project page. 

I offer 2 sizes of ladybug earrings and pins. The small ones are about the size of actual ladybugs and the larger ones are a bit bigger. Adults seem to prefer the small ones and kids really seem to like the bigger ones. They are each individually hand made by me. I shape the bugs in clay, fire them, glaze them in red and then the black dots and white eyes and fire them again. Then I glue the bugs to the nickel posts. They're adorable! They sell for $20/pair.

I often wear a ladybug on my sleeve. It's amazing how many people stop to tell me I've got a visitor!

The ladybug pins are fun to put in random places on your clothing and see if anyone notices. Try them on your shoulder, collar, arm, the lace on your boot, the bottom edge of your shirt, your hat, purse - anywhere a ladybug might land! Lots of fun and very realistic looking. They sell for $16 each.


Name tags 

Both frog and ladybug name tags are mounted to pin-backs that pin to your clothing. Each pin has a space of unglazed porcelain where you can write in your name with a sharpie marker. They sell for $20 each.

Do you attend gatherings where a name tag would be useful but are bored with the same old "Hello, my name is ..." name tag? Do you want to stand out from the crowd a bit? Then this is the name tag for you! To purchase one, please contact me!

So what's with the goats???   I've decided to give back a little. When I sell any of my ladybug earrings and pins as well as my tree frog and ladybug name pins, I will donate the proceeds from the sale of each towards buying a goat for a needy family in Uganda through Global Friends Foundation. See the details in the Get Your Goat page.
