Purchase an Amulet
Purchase one of our popular amulets. Our amulets were created by Susie Eastman Walton, a jewelry maker from Colorado, in honor of her brother Steve Eastman who was battling brain cancer. She created a simple unisex leather necklace with a silver word tag featuring one of the above five words for members of their family to wear as a symbol – or amulet — of hope and unity.
The Jen’s Friends amulet features a sterling silver hand-stamped pendant on a unisex leather necklace in one of two lengths: 16 or 18 inches. The pendant is inscribed with one of these five powerful words: believe, strength, hope, faith, and courage. Just as the Eastman family did, we encourage you to wear a Jen’s Friends amulet as a symbol of loving support.
