Charlie has graciously given me permission to use his poem, "Pennies From Heaven", which was the inspiration for my line of jewelry. The poem gets all the attention but there is a heartwarming story that came first, about a young boy and his beloved grandfather.

But ... I will let him tell you! The link to his blog is below.

First, here is my story ...

A few years ago I was trying to come up with a line of jewelry that would be interesting and unique. I have made jewelry and crafts since I was a child. I am involved with Christian women's ministries and usually make something for the women attending. As I am beading, twisting wire, painting, sewing, I am praying a blessing for the woman who will receive it. When I decided to make Catbangles into a business I wanted to do something more than just "sell jewelry". I wanted it to have a deeper meaning so I started praying and researching.

I came across the "Pennies From Heaven" poem and knew immediately that is what I wanted to do ... create jewelry using pennies!

I am privileged to hear the most incredible stories from people, how they find pennies that remind them of their departed loved ones, their "angels" in heaven. One man even sent me pennies his wife had collected and a I made a photo bracelet for her to honor their son. I was blessed to be a part of that special gift.

I love coming up with new ideas and have lists of jewelry items I want to make. I am now licensed to create University of Florida jewelry and am working on other licenses. Please browse my shop, and let me know if you have any comments or suggestions. I would love to hear from you!

Since discovering Charlie's poem I have added other U.S. and foreign coins, as well as Sterling, Gold Filled, and Stainless components. I also use a lot of Swarovski crystals.

My latest venture is real acorn cap jewelry. I also handcraft purses and scarves, and whatever else suits my fancy. I love playing and creating jewelry and items for Catbangles and I hope you love it too!

Charles' poem has blessed thousands, maybe millions, of people all around the world. His blog is encouraging and real so I highly recommend it. I use his daily devotional and God has used it powerfully in my life. He is a down home honest guy who just shares about his daily walk with a very real God.

Pennies From Heaven

I found a penny today
Laying on the ground.
But it's not just a penny,
This little coin I've found.

Found pennies come from heaven,
That's what my Grandpa told me.
He said Angels toss them down.
Oh, how I loved that story.

He said when an Angel misses you,
They toss a penny down;
Sometimes just to cheer you up,
To make a smile out of your frown.

So, don't pass by that penny
When you're feeling blue.
It may be a penny from heaven
That an Angel's tossed to you.
