Earring design idea for Fall

Do it yourself jewelry – yes you can do it! One of the best things about making your own jewelry for yourself, for gifts, and for customers is that you can create customized, personalized jewelry, for your giftee or your customer. Start with rich fall colors like these.

And adapt this idea with your own favorite colors – or your customer’s. I just wanted to point out how powerful color is! These are statement earrings – a big hit for Fall.

Color is your friend – and your collaborator. Take this idea, run with it, and make it your own!

Halloween decor – a fun Halloween wreath!

I can’t believe it’s almost the end of summer, but the planet does keep moving whether we’re paying attention or not – and Fall isn’t far away. And that means Halloween is coming! I love Halloween – it’s kind of indulgent, it’s fun, you get to play dress-up – and it’s super cool when you can add a bit of Halloween decor to your house!

Now I’m not really a fan of orange and black at home. Just a personal thing. So when I found this fun Halloween wreath, in non-traditional colors, I was a happy camper! It’s got a skull: practically a requirement for Halloween. It’s also made with wonderful colors and a great artistic eye. Tres cool!

Halloween wreath available from WreathDesignsStudio on Etsy

The shop is WreathDesignsStudio on Etsy. I haven’t asked (yet) but it’s possible that Pam, the artist, could make a terrific wreath in your customizable colors. And either way, she’s got many different styles and combos already, go peek! I think you’ll fall in love just like I did.

You can check out her Whimsical Wreaths by Pam facebook page too – you’ll find some fabulous wreaths, and I have to add, some animal and pet pictures and stories that will totally melt your heart 🙂

P.S. And of course, Christmas is coming too… and wreaths are so appropriate (and a thoughtful gift too!) Might help to remember that – just saying!

Earring design idea – hearts and flowers!

This jewelry design idea features a classic combination: hearts and flowers. The hearts shown here are rose pink, sheer vintage rhinestones that measure 12mmx12mm (about 1/2″ long). The brass filigree flower links have a light, antiqued patina – you could choose golden brass if you prefer. Other colors, other metal finishes would work – whatever suits your design aesthetic best.

These earrings would make a wonderful gift for a sweetheart or your mom – or just a fun pair of earrings to sell in your online shop! They’re a favorite with my customers – and they’re made with affordable, easy to use jewelry components.

Classic earring design idea

This is one that I love – a classic earring design featuring opaque white rhinestones in a “multi stone” prong setting, for earrings that are lovely and easy to wear!

The slender white glass pears are vintage (from the 1950s I believe) – and in these earring drops I’ve added pink rhinestones. Of course you can customize them with your favorite color – maybe add other elements – for your own earring design.

Easy to use, lightweight and comfortable, and vintage glass – this is the best kind of jewelry design!
