Necklace and earring designs – do it yourself and make it fabulous!

I just wanted to mention (okay, again) how easy it to make a gorgeous jewelry set – when you have coordinating or matching pendant and earring jewels. Yes, it’s “matchy” – but when you have carte blanche with your outfit, and maybe you got a little crazy with it, it’s good to have a single design motivation for your jewelry. Like these gorgeous rhinestone teardrops:

Truly, you don’t need to do a lot to jazz it up. Just a slender silver chain, and silver earwires or leverbacks. Of course you can do more – add layers, turn the earrings into chandeliers, create a cluster to go with the pendant. Those are wonderful options. But so is the simplicity of a great design – teardrop earrings and necklace that match.

She’ll love it. You’ll love it. This is a win 🙂

Rainbow vitrail glass gems – customizable and on sale!

The color known as “vitrail” is otherwise known as “Rainbow” – which is a wonderful and appropriate name for the variety of colors that sparkle in these lovely teardrop gems. And in this “duo” multi stone setting, you can customize the tiny stone that complements the teardrop 🙂

These really do work with a lot of different colors – which means if your outfit is mostly green, these will work. Mostly blue, or purple? These will work. Orange or pink? These will work. And added bonus – you can personalize the earrings (or pendants) with the tiny stone color of your choice – the ones shown here are just examples.

And for a few days, they’re on sale! From today through midnight on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, you can get a “buy two get one free” sale. Buy two pairs of these teardrops, and get another pair free. Or find another goodie in my shop that you’ll love.

Beautiful glass gems – plus a sale – this is a win/win!

DIY necklace design – perfect for bridal jewelry :-)

This do-it-yourself necklace design idea is a wonderful illustration of how simple concepts can be combined to make beautiful jewelry. And if your new creation is perfect for a bride – well that’s kind of wonderful, isn’t it?

Crystal jewelry is classic for brides, and this necklace features a large faceted oval crystal rhinestone combined with stainless steel cable chain. It’ll never tarnish (or need to be polished) – and as much as I love sterling silver, that’s a real plus, yknow?

Of course you will want to adapt this idea to your own creative style – and the individual tastes of your giftee, or customer. Personalized colors for your rhinestone? Check. Their choice of silver or gold or stainless, or perhaps antique bronze? Check. And there are countless permutations.

The basic idea is a super one – strong gorgeous focal pendant, and you add the personal details. Don’t spend a lot, either. This is DIY the way you want it to work!
