Rhinestone teardrops and brass filigree

Rhinestone teardrop jewels, and brass filigree charms or connectors – these are two of the most popular jewelry components today. Combine them and you’ve got some lovely, easy to make, DIY jewelry 🙂

Take a look at this sample jewelry design idea:

Of course this basic idea can be adapted in all sorts of ways. Customize with birthstone color glass jewels (inexpensive but gorgeous!) Or change the filigree connectors for a different style or color. The thing is, you can make it totally your design – and still have easy to make, inexpensive DIY earrings or pendants.

Just in time for Christmas gifts!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a quick note this morning, to wish everybody a happy Thanksgiving – I hope you’re spending it with family and friends – people who make you happy.

Don’t work too hard in the kitchen – share the chores if you can. People are more important than fancy dishes 🙂

And just because, a little reminder that when it’s Thanksgiving, party season isn’t far behind! And you can always save money when you do it yourself – with sparkling glass and rhinestone gems for gifts, for yourself, for pretty bling to wear anytime 🙂

The November birthstone color, golden topaz, for personalized jewelry

There’s still time to get some pretty golden topaz rhinestones for your November birthday gifts (well if you’re in the U.S. anyway… it’d be a bit of a stretch for overseas). And using the birthstone color is a simple, pretty way to personalize your jewelry gifts!

golden topaz rhinestone earrings or pendants available at weekendjewelry.com

Yes, it seems almost too good to be true – add leverbacks or french earwires and your DIY earrings are ready! (And if you need clip-on earring components just let me know, we can do that).

You can fuss some other time, and spend a lot more money. But you don’t need to. Make a pretty pendant necklace or personalized earrings for your gift-ee. She’ll love them 🙂

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!
