Multi Stone Earring Drops for Earrings

This post is really just to give you an idea of how big my two-jewel earring drops are in “real life”. I have several colors of this style available, and custom colors are always possible. The only thing you need to add is earwires!

But sometimes it can be hard to tell, from an online pic, just what size the jewels are. So here they are, on a mannequin bust. It’s not exactly life size – but really close! And it shows how these jewels look as earrings.

Wedding season is coming!

That’s true of course. But also true is that sparkling crystal jewelry is always in fashion. It always looks great. It goes with almost everything. And crystal jewelry makes wonderful gifts. So, you knew all that already.

Sapphire and Crystal DIY Earrings

Sapphire glass and sparkling crystal earrings in a slender, wearable two-jewel setting…You can get fancy, you can get complex – but this simple setting really makes a fabulous pair of earrings!

Really I just think it’s a good idea to point out that you don’t have to spend a lot of time or money to have pretty jewelry. Of course you can – and I’m not talking just about precious gems. There are intricate, complex designs that can produce fabulous pretties.

But you don’t have to. Be easy on yourself sometimes. Find a pretty jewel, or a pretty combo like these in one setting. Figure out the colors you want. Add earwires. Done.

And they’ll be great. It really can be that simple. (And hey, click on the pic to see more combos that are ready in my shop – and remember you can ask to see others!)

Earring Design Idea – Neutral Glass Gems

I recently made a pair of earrings for a friend – and was reminded that it’s fun to use neutral colors sometimes. How often do you wear black and white, or tan and black? Yeah, me too. So I took some jewels that were already on my worktable, and tried a new design. Let me know what you think!

I think this is a good reminder to me – and to my friends and customers too. Get out of the rut sometimes? I love color, so I tend to move toward using vivid colors in jewelry. And that’s fine, and works well. But gray is strong – and neutral. Combining neutrals works too!

Remember to click on the pic so you can see more jewels in my shop. And let me know if there’s something you’re looking for and can’t find – I might have some stashed!
