How These Unique Jewelry ideas by Chris Chaney Came About
Growing up as a second generation jeweler who lived in West Texas farm and ranch country is what led custom handmade jewelry designer Chris Chaney to creating the cotton jewelry for all of the cotton farmers across the United States. This led to peanut jewelry designs for peanut farmers and grape jewelry designs for grape and wine lovers. Chris also helped raise livestock on his small family farm and participated in 4-H and FFA. This is what led to the development of the farm animal jewelry designs which includes show lambs and show steers along with cow necklaces and bull jewelry which can be seen in the livestock jewelry collection. As Chris exhibited his original handmade jewelry designs at Farm and Ranch shows across the county he was asked to make custom jewelry of other sectors of agriculture. ( Rice Jewelry, Corn Jewelry, Wheat Jewelry, Almond Jewelry, Sweet Potato Jewelry, Soybean Jewelry, and Wildflower Jewelry) For the Ranchers and Livestock people he has designed Cattle Jewelry of Steers, Cows, bulls, and heifers. Alpaca Jewelry for those raising alpacas, and Llama Jewelry for those raising llamas from Peru.
It All Started with the Cotton Jewelry Collection
In 1992 a local farmers wife came into the family jewelry business in Big Spring, Texas to see if she could have a cotton boll necklace made that looked like a real cotton boll. She wanted something that would show the beauty of the white bolls on the cotton plant. This led custom jewelry designer Chris Chaney to create a beautiful piece of Cotton Jewelry with a hand carved snow white quartz cotton boll in a necklace design for her. It was three years in the making but she loved it and still enjoys it today. In seeing the potential appeal for this unique one of a kind jewelry to be appreciated by cotton farmers all across the Southern United States Chris designed Cotton Boll Rings, Cotton Boll Earrings , and Cotton Charms which make great gift for her. For men there are Cotton Boll Tie Tacks and Cotton Boll Cuff Links for him. The cotton jewelry collection also has Cotton Bale Necklaces and Earrings for her, and Cotton Bale Jewelry for him.
The Cotton Jewelry is also a great gift for couples celebrating their Cotton Anniversary. The traditional second anniversary gift is cotton. Many people like to give a very nice gift to their husband on wife on their 2nd anniversary and they have found the Cotton Earrings and Cotton Necklaces or the Cotton Tie Tacks in this collection to be a wonderful and lasting gift for this special occasion. If your Cotton Anniversary is coming up or you know a couple that have been married for almost two years take a look at thisbeautiful and unique Cotton Jewelry Collection I have in this store.
