Gratitude Charm Keychains

Gratitude Charm Key Chain Project from Jesse James Beads

Keys? Check? Gratitude? Check check. Our keys are something we typically never leave the house without. Gratitude should be the same. I’ve found that the simple practice of gratitude is one very big way to live a happier life. When we are grateful for the good things that occur, no matter how small or mundane they may seem, we let the universe know that we acknowledge our blessings, and our open to receiving more. We are grateful for so much here at JJB. Today we’ve made key chains with positivity charms as our reminder that when we leave home with our keys, we take the attitude of gratitude along with us


Attitude of Gratitude Charm KeychainsHamsa hands are the sisters and brothers of the Evil Eye symbol – they ward off evil will being sent your way, and help keep your spirit lifted. Buddha is a reminder of serenity and peace. The meditating Buddha brings peace and stability to the wearer. These charm connectors are from the Jesse James Bracelet Boutique Collection, very cute and stylized designs created my myself, my mom (Karen James) and our good friend and designer, Candie Cooper
