Aquamarine and aqua glass gems on sale!

Aqua and aquamarine – you know they’re the birthstone color for March, right? It’s also worth noting that aqua is one of the most universally flattering colors. From light aqua to deeper turquoise, almost everyone can wear it. If you’re born under the zodiac sign Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 19, i think? correct me if I’m wrong!) – aqua is also your zodiac color.

So if you’re wanting to give (or make!) a gift for your favorite Pisces, or your bff, or your girlfriend, or your mom – or even you – aqua is a wonderful choice! And also, as you can see here, it’s beautiful!

And from today through March 1, 2020 (at midnight) they’re also on sale! Buy one pair and get the second pair (or pendant) free. The only catch is “equal or lesser value” – and while quantities last, so don’t wait too long.

Enjoy – make pretty gifts – or pamper yourself. It’s a sale after all!

Navy blue pendant and earring jewels – a jewelry gift for Mom!

I was looking at these gorgeous navy blue (montana sapphire) jewels last night, and my girlfriend mentioned that her mom just loved navy blue. Well, I thought, these would make a great jewelry set for her. Me and my girlfriend worked that out (she’ll dog sit one afternoon, and she got the pretty jewels plus findings and chain. A win-win!)

Anyway, that just got me thinking…Mother’s Day is a couple months off. No rush, right? But hey, maybe you’re making a lot of gifts anyway – or maybe you make jewelry to sell. Mother’s Day is a day to remember! And Moms like lots of different colors. Like these gorgeous montana sapphire stones!

The earring beads come in one-ring, two-ring, or no-ring settings (as shown) so you can make exactly the style you like best. And your mom? She’ll love them!

Red glass jewels – sparkle in 2020

Just a quick post today (where does the time go!?) to show off some pretty red glass jewels available in my shop right now – and to celebrate 2020, there’s a great sale going on right now too!

Buy any RED item in my shop (see link above) and get a second item free! The sale’s only good through February 5, 2020 – so don’t wait too long. Just buy an item, then message me to tell me what you want your freebie to be. Equal or lesser value and all that, but that’s the only catch!

And it’s sheer coincidence that RED is my fabulousness color right now, and that the Kansas City Chiefs colors are red and white and they’re in the Super Bowl tomorrow! Just a coincidence. Right!

(Go Chiefs!)

Just a quick note (I know, where does the time go lately!) – to wish all of you a happy, prosperous, healthy, loving new year. Let’s make this a good one!

the pups wishing us all a happy new year 2020

The pups definitely agree. Even if they look like they’re waiting (semi-patiently) for The Ball to come their way. There are priorities, after all 🙂

Happy New Year, y’all!

You can tell from the pics that any of these crystals would make lovely earrings or pendants “as is” – just add earwires or a chain. And you know they can also be combined to make your own special fabulous creations 🙂

Making jewelry is such fun! And making presents is even better. You save money – and you make someone happy. I mean come on, isn’t that the best combo?

The sale runs from today through midnight on Friday, December 6. Go for it – get creative, save money – and have fun!

Clear Crystal Bracelet Design

I meant to update the bracelet idea I mentioned back in September – showing the clear crystal glass gems in silver settings. It’s not surprising that these clear gems adopt the color of the settings – but still seeing it is pretty cool. If you like silver, this style will totally work for you!

And I’ve started a new sale so you can get these adorable cushion cut octagons at an even better price! Just mention this blog post when you buy – and for every pair you buy, you get a pair free! Buy two pairs – get two pairs free. That’s enough to make the bracelet as shown 🙂 (and if you want more for earrings, or a necklace… well, you get the idea!)

Buy one – get one free!

That offer is good till October 30 (at midnight, the witching hour) – so don’t wait too long!

Emerald green glass heart pendants or earrings

Just got a new supply of these gorgeous deep green crystal hearts – emerald green is such a great color. It’s flattering, much easier to wear than (say) olive green) – and of course right now it’s perfect. Great for Fall – and Christmas is coming 🙂

emerald glass heart pendants or earring jewels

These pretty heart pendants are lovely “as is”. Add a necklace chain and jump ring, and your necklace is ready to wear – feminine, sparkly, and Christmas-y! Or add leverback earwires and you’re good to go. The size here is terrific too – about 5/8″ wide, large enough to have presence (and I mentioned sparkle, right?) – but not so big that they’re too heavy for earrings.

If you’re making DIY jewelry for yourself, for gifts, or for sale – these emerald glass gems are fabulous. You’ll love them!

Bridal gems (crystal stones) on sale!

Bridal crystals are beautiful. Shimmering, sparkling crystal glass beads are perfect on brides. But what we want to remember, is that they are gorgeous year round – for all sorts of jewelry. A tiny pair of diamond earrings – and the diamonds are actually crystal so they cost about a zillion times less. Or, a fabulous display of crystal chandelier earrings – can you say “knock them out” at New Year’s? Yeah, you see what I mean.

bridal gems on sale in my online jewelry supplies shop

I’m going to post some jewelry design ideas asap using these lovely crystals – but meanwhile, keep in mind that when you buy one of the gems pictured (or other crystal “clear” foil back gems) you can get a second pair free! Just send me a note and tell me what your freebie should be. Equal or lesser value to the item you bought, but that’s the only catch! This offer is good through midnight on Friday, October 11, and while supplies last – so you might not want to wait 🙂

Crystal gems are always in style!

Amethyst crystals and glass gems

Amethyst always seems very rich to me – and that doesn’t mean just the gemstones. Amethyst crystals (as rhinestones are often called) – and amethyst glass stones, can be gorgeous without spending a fortune! And today I wanted to show off some restock amethyst and vintage stones I’ve got in my shop right now 🙂

amethyst crystals and glass gems available at weekendjewelry.com

These are fabulous as pendants or earrings “as is” – you really don’t have to add a lot of fussy details, these stones can carry a jewelry design beautifully! Or of course, pair them with your choice of beads, pearls, and crystals – make the design your own. .

And just saying – these crystals make great jewelry gifts. But you knew that already 🙂
