Clearance sale items – DIY jewelry supplies

I wanted to show off a few more of the items currently offered in my “Clearance Sale” section”. These are really lovely glass gems, and I have a fair number left. When they’re gone they’re gone, but right now the pickings are good!

items available in my Clearance Sale section

The amethyst octagons are my favorites – but that could change next week. Anyway it’s not the ones I like the best that matters; it’s the ones YOU like best. DIY jewelry supplies – on clearance sale – what’s not to love!

Emerald green DIY earrings idea

And yes, I thought of these colors because of St. Patrick’s Day 🙂 Though I have to admit, emerald (whether rhinestone or gemstone) is one of my fave colors! It’s flattering, it’s pretty much always in style, and if I happen to have red hair sometimes, well, you got me 🙂

Either way, emerald looks good! And combined with these smaller sapphire rhinestone octagons, you’ve got a smashing DIY earrings idea. Of course you’ll customize it with personalized colors, and your own creative touch. Go for it!

DIY necklace design idea – rhinestones and gems!

I just wanted to show you a DIY necklace design idea that combines ‘fine'(ish) jewelry components – with “just rhinestones”. The necklace chain here combines Bali sterling silver, freshwater pearls, and gemstone amethyst rondelles. The pendant is a faceted rhinestone (glass) teardrop in a silver plated setting.

Both the rhinestone teardrop – and the fancy necklace – look great. They complement each other beautifully. I just want to remind myself (and you too) that nothing is off the table! Use what you have. Combine metals – brass and sterling. Combine components – glass or rhinestones, and genuine stones and pearls.

If it looks good, if you like the combo, you can make it work. It’s YOUR design, it’s your necklace and your creation. It’s all good!

Spring 2019 – new BOGO sale!

No it is absolutely not looking like Spring yet – we’ve got ice and snow and slush outside. But Spring is coming, all the same. Did I ever mention I love springtime? Sunshine, warmer temps, new girly fashion, everybody feeling sassy and alive? Yeah, spring is good! And with that in mind, I’m offering a new BOGO – Buy One, Get One FREE sale 🙂

clear vintage glass beads available in my shop

Clear glass gems – on sale! I love clear glass and rhinestones. They go with everything. And it’s so easy to pair them with your favorite color. Add red crystals if you love red-and-white. Add pink pearls in a little cluster. Or maybe amethyst rhinestones paired with the clear glass. You get the idea! (And I’m probably going to add some pics later).

Starting right now, buy any pair of clear glass jewels (gems) in my shop – and you get a second pair (or pendant) free! Equal or lesser value and all that. After you buy, just send me a convo or email and tell me what free pair you want. Easy peasy 🙂

The sale lasts from right this minute, through midnight on Thursday, February 28. So you’ve got a few days – to buy pretty glass gems, on sale, with a freebie. (And if you feel like sharing pics of your creation, I would totally love to see – and share the pics here, if you like!)

Aqua (aquamarine) glass gems – on sale!

Okay, let me explain that. What we in the jewelry biz call “aqua” covers a lot of colors, really (stay tuned, I’m going to post some more examples later on) – but it’s pretty accurate to say the colors “aqua”, “light aqua”, “light turquoise”, and, yes, “aquamarine blue” are covered here. Aquamarine is a semi precious gemstone, a light blue-green beryl that’s primarily found in granite (no really!) It’s the March birthstone – and it’s lovely. Also expensive. But aqua rhinestone gems? Gorgeous AND affordable. This is more like the way most of us shop! And why not? Look how pretty these glass gems are 🙂

p>And here’s the really cool part – for the rest of this week – from February 6, 2019 through midnight on Sunday, February 10, 2019 – when you buy any two aqua listings (pendants or pairs of jewels), you get your third item free (yes, equal or lesser value – you know the drill!) So go order two items – and then send me a note to tell me what want for free 🙂

That seems pretty simple, right? Great prices and gorgeous jewels – gotta love it!

Clear glass beads and jewels – on sale!

Really I just wanted to point out how pretty clear glass jewels can be! They’re not bright and vivid, but they have their own charm – and a lovely delicate sparkle, all depending on the settings we use, and the faceting of the glass. Take a look 🙂

You see what I mean? These are pretty wonderful. Minimalist jewels, lovely for bridal and wedding jewelry without stealing the show – and of course for everyday, they go with everything.

And for the next few days – from January 26, 2019 through midnight January 30, 2019 – when you buy any two pairs of clear glass jewels, you get your third pair free (yes, equal or lesser value – you know the drill!) Order any two clear pairs (or pendants) – and then send me a note to tell me the ones you want for free. Don’t wait too long, this is limited to the next few days, and available stock.

Hey, buy two, get one free – that’s a pretty great deal!

DIY bridal earrings – and save money !

This is an example of some beautiful bridal earrings that are easy to make yourself 🙂

These white glass cabochon earrings have tiny rhinestones – and you can customize the color. This means you can create your earrings combining bridal white, and the color of your bridesmaids’ dresses. So pretty!

So now you see one more way to make your own wedding jewelry – and save money too!

Glass teardrop pendants – on sale!

“On Sale” are pretty interesting words, right? Now this is a sale not everybody knows about – I figured you guys would like to hear. I have some gorgeous teardrop-shaped glass (rhinestone) pendants available in my shop – the pic here just shows a few examples (I love the colors though!)

For the rest of this week, through midnight on January 20, 2019, when you buy two of these gorgeous pendants – any two, your choice – you get the third one free. You just have to tell me which one.

Birthday presents? A gift for your mom? For your bestie? For you (equally valid!) – This is the time. Buy two, get one free. Love it!

Garnet glass gems for January birthday gifts

Just an FYI – garnet is the traditional birthstone for January. Garnets are not rare, but finding clean cut, non included garnets can be a challenge – and expensive. But the garnet rhinestones I have in my shop are beautifully faceted, versatile, and they’re super affordable too 🙂

These glass gems are wonderful for necklaces and earrings – and I’m almost always able to ship next day after you order, so there’s still time to get your January birthday present ready. Add your own creative touch, save money, and make a gift she’ll love. This is the way we like it!

P.S. I have a few more garnet rhinestones on the way – if there’s a style or shape you need and don’t see, drop me a note – I might have it already!

Do it yourself necklace design idea – welcome to 2019!

Happy new year! I hope you all had a fun New Year’s Eve, a peaceful New Year’s Day, and are all set for a fun 2019!

Hey, it’s a terrific goal. And of course I think that 2019 should include making your own jewelry – for yourself, for gifts, and for customers too. It’s so easy to get started, and it doesn’t have to cost a lot! Just for example, think how easy it will be to customize this do-it-yourself necklace design idea.p>

The pendant can be your customer’s favorite color – and the golden brass round tags, stamped with her initial. Add more than one, for her kids’ names! (Yes she’d love it!) Start with this basic design, and add your own creative ideas – make it your own!

Do it yourself – and save – and make people happy with their gifts and purchases! That’s a good goal for 2019, too 🙂
