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!

Vintage sundress just in time for Spring

I am so in the mood for this dress! It’s a gorgeous vintage sundress. The fabric is polyester, which means yes it’ll be hot on 100 degree days – but the rest of the time (i.e., almost always) it’ll be washable and it won’t wrinkle and it’ll always look good. These things are important!

Is that not adorable? And look at the fun details! The spaghetti straps, the little keyhole neckline, the bias cut fabric (you know that moves beautifully!) And not to mention it’s super affordable. It’s available from Power of Three Vintage on Etsy. This is the kind of vintage shopping that’s fun! The shop is a joint operation with three sisters, and they have got a great eye for unique clothing – all featuring black, which is kind of a cool niche – and I think they’re going to be around for a while.

Go shopping – you’ll thank me!

Restocking black diamond glass beads – and they’re a great Gift for Mom!

These are actually one of my favorite “duo” jewel combinations. They aren’t “summery”, they aren’t just for winter – they are classic and year round and did I mention, they go with practically every color?

Very useful when you just need to grab some earrings, put them on, and head out the door. And when you want something that’ll go with blue jeans or LBD.

And just in case you’re looking for that perfect gift for mom, that you can afford, that she’ll love? Problem solved: these will totally work!

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 🙂
