Sheer rhinestone beads and jewels for DIY jewelry

Here are some new (and some restocked!) vintage and new glass jewels in my shop – yes, they’re just in time for summer. But also? Pretty Fall 2018 jewelry designs!

sheer glass beads and jewels for DIY jewelry designs

Don’t you love the colors? I swear, more and more I am leaning toward pure tints, unfoiled stones – so I can really see the colors. Of course that can vary with each design, and every woman that wears these might see them differently – but I think we can all agree, we love beautifully faceted stones for earrings and necklace designs. Pure color is pretty terrific. Affordable stones is even better 🙂

(PS And there are more on the way – stay tuned or better yet, ask to see the colors YOU want to use in your designs!)

Aqua vintage glass pendant – clearance sale

And I just wanted to mention, I’ve added the stock I have left of the aqua vintage glass pendants – pictured below – to my Clearance sale. I don’t know if I can get any more, so it just seems fair that the last dozen or so be available at a great clearance price!

I might be able to get more, down the road – but with vintage there are no guarantees. It’s such a pretty pendant – and so easy to use, just add a jump ring and chain and you’ve got a lovely piece of jewelry!

That’s the way it’s supposed to be. And these are on sale!

New CLEARANCE sale at my shop!

I realized the other day that I was looking for clearance items in a couple shops I visited. And then a light bulb went off. I could do a clearance sale! Or a clearance Section – for those styles where I only have a few left, or they’re really hard to set and I don’t think I’m going to get more, or I just decided to mark them down. A clearance section, what a great idea!

Yes of course it’s a ploy to get you to visit my shop. And to find great deals. And rhinestone jewels you’ll love. That kind of ploy. (Cross heart, I think you’ll love them!)

DIY earring design idea with amethyst teardrops

Amethyst rhinestone teardrops combined with sparkling crystal rounds – in clear crystal, or colors – are a classic earring design. They’re also easy to create – and change to suit your own taste. These are just a few examples 🙂

That’s what DIY jewelry is all about – make what you want, the way you want it, and you don’t have to spend a lot of money!

Peach glass jewels for your bridesmaid jewelry :-)

Of course you might make peach rhinestone jewelry for any occasion – it just reminds me so much of bridesmaid pretties! I think because at both of the weddings I’ve been to in the past year, the bridesmaids wore peach. (Okay, peach and white… and at the other, peach and lilac, very pretty!)

And right now, I’m offering a BOGO sale 🙂

sheer peach rhinestone teardrops for earrings and pendants

So feminine and pretty! And that BOGO sale I mentioned? From May 21, 2018 through May 24, 2018 (at midnight) – for every pair of peach jewels you buy (or pendant jewel) you can choose another pair for free.

Your bridesmaids – or girlfriend, or mom, or you! – will love them 🙂

And isn’t it interesting, the different shades that are part of the “green” color family. Imagine these with purple – with royal blue – with cream or white – with pink!

I’ll probably play with a few designs – just like you do – and will post a few here and there 🙂
