So you can make that wonderful pair of earrings for your Mother’s day gift (yes there’s still time) – and make a second pair for yourself!

Green glass jewels for springtime DIY jewelry

Just a quick note that green jewelry can be very spring-like! The pic here shows a few of the green glass jewel styles I have in my shop right now. So fresh and pretty!

And isn’t it interesting, the different shades that are part of the “green” color family. Imagine these with purple – with royal blue – with cream or white – with pink!

I’ll probably play with a few designs – just like you do – and will post a few here and there 🙂

Meanwhile, just a little inducement for DIY goodness: Buy any pair of green glass jewels in my shop and from April 28, 2018 through May 1, 2018 (at midnight) you get an extra pair for free! You can pick any pair for your freebie (equal or lesser value is the only limitation). So have fun – and go green!

Earring design idea and a BOGO sale

Yes, another one (these are fun!) I’m posting a pic showing a glass jewel combo that I think of as “summer jewels”. The white teardrops are vintage glass made in post-war Japan – I just found a packet I had stashed and lost! I know that never happens to you guys, right? You put something somewhere so it’ll be safe and findable, and then forget where you put it? Yeah. So anyway: white teardrops, clean lined and beautiful. Pair the white jewels with these aqua (light turquoise) rivoli faceted glass connectors and voila, white and turquoise – a classic summer color combination. And you’ve got a great pair of summer earrings 🙂

So here’s the deal. Buy either of these jewel styles, and you get a second pair of jewels free – equal or lesser value and all that. In practice, it means that if you buy the white teardrops, you can get the aqua glass connectors for free! Or choose another color – take a look around my shop and I bet you’ll find some that’ll be perfect for you.

The BOGO offer is just till the end of this week (from today, April 3, 2018, until midnight on Saturday, April 7, 2018) so don’t wait too long. And have fun!

PS Come to think of it – these white teardrops, paired with crystal clear sparkly glass beads instead of the aqua, would be gorgeous for bridal earrings. Just thought I’d mention it 🙂

Pink Bridesmaid Jewels – new BOGO sale

Wedding and Bridal Jewels – new BOGO sale

I’ve just restocked one of my favorite rhinestone (glass) jewels – the mid size, sparkling crystal teardrops shown below. I love these. They have high quality facets, terrific sparkle, and – this is important to me! – they’re super comfortable. Big enough to add shine and sparkle – but still petite(ish). And they are a best seller – I think a lot of women agree with me here 🙂

And since I just got in a new packet, I’m offering a limited time BOGO sale – buy one pair of these rhinestone earrings or pendant jewels – and get another pair free. And you can substitute any other item in my shop for your second pair, as long as it is equal or lesser value. You know the drill 🙂

Good for only a few days, so don’t wait too long! From Friday, March 23, 2018 through Monday, March 26, 2018 (at midnight), buy one pair, get one pair free!

New BOGO deal of the day – December birthstones!

Okay, I should correct that – it’s December birthstone *color* glass jewels that are on sale. I don’t have any precious tanzanite or zircon in my shop – but I’ve got some wonderful blue zircon, aqua, and turquoise glass cabochons and jewels available. They’re lovely, and affordable, and they are now on a BOGO sale!

For one day only (yes, a new Deal of the Day) – December 1, 2017 – when you buy one listing of these attractive earwires, you get another listing for free.

Peridot green vintage glass gems – BOGO sale

These beautiful glass jewels are vintage rhinestones I found a while back and was lucky enough to be able to restock – not always possible with true vintage. I love this sheer, clean color – peridot green without too much “lime” in the green – a super flattering shade and a customer favorite.

peridot green sheer vintage rhinestone earrings or pendant jewels are 18x13mm teardrops

These are probably the most popular style jewel I have available – teardrops that are large enough to be fabulous for earrings or pendants – but not so big they’re too heavy. These are 18x13mm teardrops – that’s approx. 3/4″ x 1/2″.

And if you mention this post, you get a BOGO sale price – buy this pair and get a second pair free. (Note – you can choose another color for your second – free – pair of jewels, if you like. Equal or lesser value, you know the drill!) And this offer is good for a full week – November 12, 2017 through November 19, 2017! You might not want to wait – this special offer is only while supplies last. (As of this writing I still have almost 2 dozen pairs left.)

These make wonderful Christmas gifts – and if you need gift earrings for an August birthday girl, these are her birthstone color!
