Amerricana Jewelry

About the Shop: I craft my necklaces in the United States. I ship directly from my desk to your door. Have a look around my shop. I hope you like my items! All of the stainless steel components are etched rather than engraved. This allows for much more detail in the processing. If there is a cause that I do not currently have any jewelry to support feel free to let me know and I will see about adding it to the collection.

I am starting to carry a few other items outside of the Awareness Jewelry. Take a look at the other items I carry and let me know if there’s something you’d like to see added.

I am proud to say that all of the Stainless Steel products that I carry are made by myself here in The United States. High quality American products at an affordable price!

I continue to be humbled by all of the incredible people I have had the honor of interacting with through this jewelry. You all inspire me in my daily life and renew my passion for making these items.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Body Positive Designs

About the Shop: I have struggled with anorexia nervosa for six years. Those six years have been spent hating my own body and doing everything that I could to fight with it. Embracing body positivity has been one of the greatest decisions that I’ve ever made, especially on the path of my recovery. Because of this, I created BodyPositiveDesigns with the hopes of celebrating the movement.

Ford’s Cord & Supplies

About the Shop: Ford’s Cord & Supplies is a home based business that started as a hobby and turned into a full-time job. I have been making paracord bracelets and accessories since 2011.

I love making items with paracord and enjoy learning new designs. Paracord bracelets have become a great fashion statement, but can also be used as a life saving device if needed. There are many uses for paracord (parachute cord) that can be very valuable to anyone. Everyone should have some paracord handy just in case of an emergency situation.

I specialize in making Officially Licensed sports team (NFL, MLB, NCAA, & NBA) and awareness items. I also make many customized items by request. If you don’t see what you are looking for in my shop, just contact me and we will work together to make something very special 🙂 All of my items are handmade by myself right here in the USA.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my store!

Give With Love Cards

About the Shop:

I have lived experience with mental health issues and March 2016 was a challenging time for me. One day, I sat down with some art supplies and a determination to turn something negative into something beautiful. What resulted was three mental health compassion cards which I gave away to complete strangers. Seeing the way my art touched others planted a seed that has grown into a deep love of art and an enthusiasm for spreading compassion. All of my cards are inspired by my own experiences or the experiences of the people I love most. I am so passionate about what I do, and I feel grateful for this platform to share that with you. Thank you for visiting my shop.

 

Lana’s Basket

About the Shop: Lana’s Basket is a family run shop primarily focused on (but not limited to) selling bespoke, made to order cutlery ideal as original gifts, keepsakes and helpful, inspirational tools for individuals in recovery from eating disorders and other mental illness.

The idea behind Lana’s Basket began in February 2014. Having personally battled with anorexia myself it has always been a burning ambition of mine to give something back, for this commonly misunderstood mental health issue. With the help of my husband who has been my team mate and no.1 supporter in fighting my corner for nearly 9 years, we would like to do this by selling personalised cutlery featuring your own or one of our inspirational messages as a small reminder to keep you or your loved one going strong when times are hard.

As a sufferer of an eating disorder myself, I understand that sometimes you may have some individual requirements. If you have any questions regarding the type of cutlery (i.e. size, style) and/or message(s) that you would like I will be more than happy to try my best to answer them, so please don’t hesitate to ask.

Lazy Sunday Mugs

About the Shop: Lazy Sunday Mugs was born out of dream to combine two of my favorite things—body positivity and mugs.

I’ve long been a collector of souvenir mugs. Go on a fun vacation—buy a mug. Memorable life event—buy a mug. Celebrating a holiday—buy a mug. Seriously, I love mugs! Both festive and functional, there’s nothing quite like sipping coffee from a mug that triggers a walk down memory lane.

I am also a big advocate for body positivity and practicing unconditional self-acceptance, no matter your size, shape or physical ability. All bodies are good bodies. All bodies are worthy of love and respect. The problem is, this isn’t the message many of us grow up hearing or believing.

That’s when I had an idea. Why not create a mug brimming with body positivity? Why not make the first thing I see every morning a message telling me that the person I am, right now, in this moment, is enough.

Mad Comics

About the Shop:  We started making educational mental health comics in 2007 out of sheer frustration at the lack of resources, but never expected them to sell. Then people started getting interested, and we’ve been working ever since! We love what we do and hope to continue doing it for a long time.

Moon Flower Jewel

About the Shop: When I started making jewellery, I was in a recovery program for anorexia. My hands used to shake so horribly that I could barely get a bead on string. I spent weeks on one simple DIY project and was so frustrated because I just couldn’t get it. I stored ‘jewellery making’ in the closet along with all the other things I had told myself I couldn’t do. I was lucky enough to have friends and family who gave me tremendous support. I never though what was once a hobby that I couldn’t even do has become this beautiful symbol or my recovery. As I got healthier, I became better with skills, then my designs, then my store…two things I never thought possible, have become real in my life.

Because of other mental health disorders I suffer from, it has been difficult for me to keep a 9 to 5 job where I could explore my creativity. This is the purpose of MoonFlowerJewel: To create beautiful things and give them to other people. Maybe I can’t be a doctor or a lawyer, but I can create little pockets of art and creative energy to spread to those around me. Creating and sharing my art has been what sustains me. It is a way that I can be me and contribute to better the world.

Nesting Nomad

About the Shop: Howdy – my name is Lisa, and I’m the Nesting Nomad. I’ve been drawn to earthy, interesting art and jewelry for as long as I can remember – I feel as if these types of pieces carry their own soul. My early experimentations with jewelry creation involved seeds and organic matter gathered from the woods around my childhood home in Michigan. I still love seeds and plants, but I’ve branched out a bit since then…. At the end of the day, I just plain love things that have a story to tell…

Why am I the Nesting Nomad? In my lifetime so far, I have lived in over 30 different houses, one car, and one boat – in seven different states. I’m ready to settle down now. It’s time.

Mr. Nomad (Anthony) works in a supporting role, helping with packaging and the occasional jewelry piece. We are currently happily nestled in lovely Vero Beach, Florida, where we hide from winter and hope to stay for a while.

Therapy Journals

About the Shop: Hello! Through my life I have struggled with bulimia & depression, and I’ve developed a passion for helping others who are hurting. So I decided to use my knack for organization & graphic design to develop Therapy Journals!

Thunder Moon Awareness

About the Shop: Sitting at my work table one morning I made an awareness bracelet – just one – a white one. I told Michael (my other half) that I made the bracelet but that I wasn’t sure exactly why. I just felt that I should. Michael smiled. He knew it was a beginning.

I knew that if we sold awareness jewelry that we would donate a good part of the total sales to the causes represented by our bracelets. That part was clear to me. If something good didn’t come from all of this, I didn’t want to do it.

So I made the bracelet – listed it – and sold it. The person who bought the bracelet told me her story and as I read the story of her son, I cried. My son is the same age as hers – with a daughter the same age as her son’s daughter. Although I couldn’t completely know how she felt, I could sure identify.

A couple more bracelets listed – a couple more stories told – some of sadness – some of hope – some of miraculous cures. I was invested – no turning back.

From the bracelets sold and the stories they shared with me, I started making a list of people for whom I wanted to pray – people I wanted to support with as much positive energy as I could

It occurred to me that I could make a page on our website for the people that I was supporting and that maybe it would turn it into a community where we could all support each other – multiply the prayers – multiply the energy.

If you’d like to add your prayers and positive energy, please see the “People Page” on our website: http://thunder-moon.com/awareness/

I’m always aware of God’s presence in my life – sometimes I respond to a gentle tap on the shoulder – sometimes it takes a lot more to get my attention – but I try to be aware of God’s promptings and I’m sure that this is one.

And so Thunder Moon Awareness was born.

Zines By Nyxia

About the Shop: I’ve been creating zines since the 1990’s. While the subject matter has evolved over the years my mission has not–to connect with others. Today my zines focus on eating disorder and recovery, sexual assault, feminism, body politics, activism, and various shit from my childhood/teenage years.

In my ‘real’ life I am Zine Librarian at a small liberal arts college for women. I lead zine workshops and write academic articles and book chapters about the power of zines.
