These golden brass, triple rhinestone settings have three glass jewels – and if your mom has three kids, you can pick those three birthstone colors to customize her Mother’s Day gift!
Don’t let the closeup fool you, these are tiny rhinestones. These beads are great used as jewelry connectors, but also wonderful when you use them exactly “as is” for delicate drop earrings. (You can get these without the little ring on the bottom, if you prefer.) If your mom likes really Out There big earrings, add showy emerald teardrops at the bottom ring. But if delicate is her style? She’s going to adore these tiny treasures 🙂
And she’ll love that you thought of it!
If you visit my shop occasionally you may remember these from last year – I finally got more in! Peridot green glass octagon gems – or “framed glass pendant or earring jewels” as they are often called. Me? I just love the color 🙂
And, just thought I’d mention, peridot is the birthstone color for August. If your mom has an August birthday, these would make an awesome pair of earrings, or framed glass pendants.
See? Such a cool color – and an easy DIY gift for mom 🙂
These pretty rose pink vintage glass jewels are actually a restock and I was so happy to find some more! They’re just under 1/2″ wide and great used “as is” for necklace or earring gems – but as you can see, they’re terrific in this multi-stone, “two jewel” setting.
The settings are available in silver, patina brass and golden raw brass – and the color combos shown are lovely. But the extra nice thing is that you can customize, so you can make a gift for mom with her favorite “pink plus color” combo!
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 🙂
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 🙂
Birthstone colors, that is. Yes, I’m mentioning this idea again – because it’s so easy to do, and if you’re DIYing or making gifts, it’s nice that there’s a simple, pretty way to make jewelry that’ll be really personal for her.
These delicate earring drops (or tiny pendant) are shown with pink glass gems – the October birthstone colors are pink, or pink opal, or rose quartz – and peridot green, the birthstone color for August. You can choose customized, personalized colors – that’s the whole point.
Easy to do, inexpensive, and personal – this makes a great gift for Mom!
Or for you 🙂
Are you going to make a gift for your mom this year? Or maybe your customer is asking for birthstone colors for the earrings she wants for her mother 🙂
And it’s simple to select the birthstone colors you need to use for your “gift for mom”. Here’s an example of earring drops (or a delicate pendant) made with three stones – sapphire blue for September birthdays, amethyst purple for February, and aqua blue for March. If those are your kids’ birth months, you’re good to go!
In this triple-jewel setting it’s easy to customize the colors for your earrings. These are delicate little drops, about 1″ long – which makes them super comfy for earrings. There are two-jewel settings too of course, and I’ll be featuring those soon. And if you have more kids? There are designs we can work on, easy peasy 🙂
As always, if you don’t see the exact “triple” settings, or rhinestones in the birthstone colors you need, just ask. If I haven’t got them already I’ll get them, or help you find them. It’ll be fun and easy to make your mom a customized birthstone gift!
I’ve been looking at glass jewel combinations lately – in birthstone colors, that is. I had a lovely girl ask me to send her the stones for a bracelet with the birthstone colors of her three kids – and that got me thinking about stone colors, and personalized jewelry in general, and of course Mother’s Day.
So I’m going to take a few pics here and there of combinations of glass jewels that look great – and are also representative of colors that could be picked because of your kids birthdays!
Now these particular jewels are emerald green – the birthstone for May; white or crystal or diamond, which is the birthstone (and color) for April; and aqua or aquamarine blue, which is the birthstone color for March. They’re pretty together, in whatever combination you choose – but if you have kids born on May 12, April 18, and March 7, these stones would be even more personal to you.
This is a fun way to play with colors – and if you’re making a gift for a Mom in your life, you can be guided by her kids birthdays! Easy peasy, fun, and personal – and a great gift idea 🙂
P.S. Of course you can always search my shop for other shapes in these colors – go to that spot on the upper right where it says “Search items” – and if you can’t find just the shape you need – ask!
A friend of mine was talking about finding some great emerald gemstone beads recently – so I just had to show her why I loved my glass beads. Okay, I love the gemstones too, don’t get me wrong. But for the money? Glass. Totally wins.
And I’ve got some terrific “multi stone” glass beads – that have two (or more) rhinestones. The extra rhinestone adds sparkle, and even more, it means you can customize to get exactly the color combo you want. Change that tiny crystal stone for pink, or amethyst, or aqua, or, hey, emerald!
If I get a chance I’m going to take some more pics, using different colors for the small stones – just to show how yummy some of these combos can be.
Emerald it great for St. Patrick’s Day, of course, which just happens to be coming up pronto – and it’s the “official” birthstone color for May.
But really, it always looks classy. Affordable, wearable, flattering, and classy. This is a win 🙂
I’m loving these delicate, smaller teardrops this Spring. They’re girly, they’re easy to wear, they look good. They’re just a bit smaller than some of my classic teardrops – about 5/8″ high rather than 3/4″ – so they’re just that little bit more comfortable. I’m all about easy, pretty and comfy 🙂
And I love the “black diamond” color – plus it makes me smile. Trust Swarovski, I *think* it was, to come up with that snazzy, expensive-sounding name for this neutral gray! Whatever you call it, it’s a terrific and useful shade. It pretty much goes with everything – and always looks classy 😉
Easy, affordable, pretty. This is the way DIY jewelry is supposed to be!
PS I show these beads in silver plated brass settings, which is traditional and attractive. But sometime you might want to try using the gray beads with copper AND brass. Mix your metals – boho chic!
