Personalized DIY Jewelry in Spring 2017 Colors

This is really just a reminder that it’s fun to mix colors and shapes when you create your own jewelry, or make jewelry for sale or for gifts. Adding a bit of whimsy just makes the pieces more interesting. Case in point, a simple example:

glass jewels in pretty Spring 2017 colors - new color combinations

And the “personalized” part? You can choose your favorite colors. Or your birthstone colors combined with your boyfriend’s. Or make a gift for your mom using the birthstone colors of you and your siblings. If you don’t see the colors you need in my jewelry supplies shop, just ask – I’ve almost always got more jewels (and colors) than I’ve had a chance to list!

You see what I mean, anyway – play with new shapes and color combos. It’s fun, it’s inexpensive, and it’s cute!

Easy DIY earring designs

Sometimes easy is what it’s all about. Take these vintage glass beads (rhinestone jewels) and brass charms, for example:

golden brass leaf charms and amethyst vintage glass jewels in my online jewelry supplies shop

You can see how pretty they are together. Use a jump ring to link them, add earwires, and you’re good to go! Sometimes intricate is wonderful. Sometimes you don’t want to bother. But you still want to look great.

These look great 🙂

Pink glass teardrops for DIY jewelry

And this is just a quick note – that you don’t have to get fussy and complicated to have a classic pendant or pair of earrings. Find a pretty, flattering color, like these soft pink teardrops:

pink glass teardrop beads in silver or brass prong settings... DIY pendants or earring jewels

They’d be lovely for a gift, of course (and Mother’s Day is coming, which I know you don’t need to be reminded or anything). But also for yourself. They don’t cost much, there are a few sizes available so you can be bold or demure (is that still a word?)

They’re inexpensive. They’re easy. That’s a gift in itself. And, you know, springtime. Pink. Looks good.

Pink framed glass pendant and earring beads

Because pink is such a pretty Spring color 🙂

Of course there are lots of pink glass gems in my Etsy shop. And if there’s a shape or size you can’t find, just ask me – I might have some or can find some for you. But I just wanted to show some easy DIY pendant and earring beads that don’t cost a lot of money or take a lot of work.

And these would make a wonderful jewelry set for Mother’s Day. Just saying 🙂

DIY Jewelry Design – color is fun!

This pic is just a way of showing how much fun color can be! I think the white opal glass octagons and fuschia pink teardrop are pretty together:

But it’s the green background I wanted to mention. I know, a graphic background is totally not relevant! Except to show that vivid color, combined with other strong colors, can be really eye-catching. And sometimes you want to do that. You’re wearing a quiet outfit, looks nice but no juice? Add a bright pair of earrings. Or maybe dye your hair green.

Okay, go with the earrings – it’s easier to change them (and they probably cost less too).

Color is fun 🙂
