FREE shipping – read the details below!

Hey, I decided to try a little experiment. From today through 12/31/18, I’m offering FREE SHIPPING – first class USPS on all domestic U.S. orders that total over $40.00 USD 🙂 And I’m not neglecting my international customers either, I love you guys! For every international order that totals over $40.00 USD, I’ll send a refund of $2.80 USD (the same amount as the free shipping offer) as soon as I get your order. Well right after anyway (it might take a few hours till I see it!)

It’s an extra perk for my customers, hey, free or discounted shipping is pretty cool. And if it helps convince a new customer to try my shop, well that’s good for me too. So this is a win-win.

My pic today is just a few earring design ideas I’ve put together – some are new, some not. And I’ll be posting more soon – stay tuned and come back soon!

Gold plated chain – affordable chain for DIY jewelry

I just got in some gold plated chain – it’s inexpensive, lightweight, and totally fun for DIY jewelry!

DIY earring design featuring round glass jewels and gold plated chain

The second pic shows an earring design that’s one of my favorites – using the round glass jewels paired with golden chain ‘tassels’ makes lightweight earrings that have sparkle, and movement, and they are super fun to wear. Also flattering.

Also inexpensive, especially with this gold plated chain. It’s not precious, just pretty. But you know, sometimes that’s just what we want!

DIY earring design idea – crystal and black rhinestones

This is a really classic combination of faceted stones – sparkling crystal and faceted jet black stones. You could wear these earrings any time of year – and any time of day. But specially for evening chic!

Wear them to show off a summer tan – wear them for Christmas. And did I mention New Year’s? Absolutely!

Black is always in style. Crystal sparkle, even more, and when the crystal is near your face, everything is just a bit brighter. This is of the good 🙂

You really can’t go wrong! Easy, affordable DIY earrings – great for you – great for gifts!

Blue zircon glass pendant

Blue zircon or teal blue glass beads – and a BOGO sale!

Woo hoo! I’ve just gotten in some gorgeous new blue zircon, cushion cut octagon rhinestones. These are wonderful earring drops, mid-size pendants (classic traditional shape to nestle at the base of the throat) – or glass connectors, when you use two-ring settings.
