Black Glass Pendant and Earring Beads – on Sale!

Let’s try an actual list of positives here:

(1) Black goes with everything. Well, pretty much.

(2) Black is always in style. Again – pretty much (or always, I think I was right the first time).

(3) Fall is coming and darker colors work great in Fall.

(4) Not to mention if you make gifts, specially when you don’t know your giftee’s “favorite color” – black always works.

(5) Right now, these wonderful pendant and earring jewels are on sale!

It’s easy – buy that pendant anytime this week (through Saturday, July 31) – and you get the round earring jewels for free! The only catch is you have to mention this blog post. Easy peasy!

(Good while supplies last, this week only – you know the drill)

Peridot and Aqua DIY Earrings

This is just a quick note that, drum roll, color is wonderful! Use it. Try it. Play with it!

The earrings shown here combine three (slightly) different colors from peridot to light blue to aqua. Of course you could use any combination of colors – the point is, to try ideas. Some of them won’t work, but some of them will be wonderful!

Clear Glass Jewels – a BOGO sale

Yes I’m having another BOGO sale – it’s a special I like to run every so often, especially if I’ve gotten in a large packet of clear jewels. So – I can offer a great sale – and people can really see how pretty and sparkly clear gems can be!

So from today through next Sunday, July 18, when you buy a pair of clear glass gems (or a pendant) – you get one for free! Just mention this psot when you order, and tell me what you want your freebie to be. This is a win!

Peridot Green Pendant – Necklace Design Idea

This is one of my favorite necklace designs. Use whatever pendant you like best – in this case, it’s a sparkling peridot green pear.

So aside from the fact that it looks great, if you look closely you can see that the peridot teardrop hangs from a loop of silvery chain that matches the multiple strands of necklace chain (stainless steel chain in this case). And – the pendant is removeable! You could make several pendants of your choice, slip one off the necklace chain and replace it with the color you want to wear, today.

Oh, and the peridot shown here is the birthstone color for August. Just in case you need an August birthday gift!

Vintage amethyst glass jewels – on sale!

These gorgeous deep amethyst glass gems are vintage from the 1950s, I think – I’m using the paper they’re wrapped in as a reference (the paper has a New York phone number – and it *pre-dates* area codes!)

So aside from being true vintage, which is pretty wonderful – using stock that doesn’t have a new ecological footprint – they’re also gorgeous. Don’t you think?

Clear Heart Earrings

It’s possible you might think that clear – I mean, totally transparent – earrings will have no pizzazz or presence. Let me argue with that idea!

These vintage glass hearts are nicely faceted, and when you combine faceting with the metal prong settings, you get jewels that will be noticed!

Pretty, romantic heart earrings (great gifts for her, if any of your guy friends are looking!) And you don’t have to spend a lot, or work hard, to make them. Add earwires and you’re good to go!

You see what I mean? Grab a few glass elements, play with design and style, and make these earrings your own!

DIY red white and blue earrings for the Fourth of July!

This easy DIY earring design is the result – find the right stones, add jump rings, and you’re good to go!

Make the design your own! Change sizes and shapes, and even colors – really the thing to remember is that it’s always a great time to try new ideas…
