New BOGO Sale

Okay, this is just for fun! right now I'm loving the classic look of "emerald cut" (octagon shaped) rhinestones. They have a classy, expensive look to them - without costing a lot of money.  So here's my idea. This week's BOGO sale is, buy any pair of octagon jewels in my shop - and get a second pair free! You get to choose the second pair (subject to availability and all that) - your choice of color and size. 



DIY earring design idea - bridal jewels!

These clean-lined vintage glass jewels in shades of white (yes there are differences!) would be perfect for a modern bride. The opaque white teardrops were made in post-war Japan, so they're 70 or more years old - don't they look great? And the "white opal" octagons are vintage too - from the late 50s I think (that's what the packaging looked like - if you want more info just ask!) 

Paired together, they make a lovely pair of earrings - perfect for a bride. "Something old" - but somehow modern too - love it! 



Emerald green glass beads for St. Patrick's Day

Of course we don't need to wear emerald green jewelry for St. Patrick's Day - but it's kind of fun, you know? Something affordable, and easy, and flattering. Like these pretty jewels:

Clear glass beads and jewels - DIY necklace design idea

I was thinking about clear glass beads and how much more "presence" they have than you might imagine.  Sheer jewels, and clear beads, can be fantastic! Here's just one example. 



Even with clear glass jewels, your necklace design can have real style - it doesn't disappear. Think about it - a beautiful necklace that goes with everything. Talk about smart as well as gorgeous!


Prom Jewelry - golden tan teardrops with tiny rhinestones

Just wanted to mention, these are turning into my customer favorites for prom earrings! They're sparkly, pretty, and have just a bit more pizzazz than clear (white) rhinestones. Not to mention that they aren't just "bridal" style.

Using these stones is such an easy way to personalize your jewelry gifts. and of course you know that buying rhinestones in gemstone colors is just plain affordable, who can't appreciate that these days? And as you can see, these stones can also be beautiful :-)

DIY earrings design - customized jewelry with your favorite colors :-)

This pic shows an example of how easy it can be to make custom designed earrings - using classic rhinestone jewels and choosing your own fave colors. The example here shows light colorado topaz - a gorgeous light golden tan: 



Using all one color creates a fabulous cohesive design - add jump rings and earwires and you're good to go! But if you prefer, you could choose two or three different colors to make customized jewelry. Perhaps the birthstone colors of your customer's three children - or her personal favorites.
