Neutral Glass Gem Earrings and a BOGO sale!

Here’s an example of totally neutral colors in a new earring design. These are classic shapes – rounds and octagons. The combination is classy, simple, and inexpensive. This works!

Really I just wanted to show that earrings don’t have to have bright colors to be fabulous. You could wear these all year round – with any color – and they’ll be a great addition to your outfit. Or your customer’s outfit. Just saying…

And these gems are on sale through Friday, November 26, 2021! Buy any pair of the black diamond 14x10mm octagons (in your choice of settings color) – and the crystal 10mm round gems are free. You just have to send a message and ask!

Great DIY earrings – and super sale prices – this is great do it yourself jewelry!

Red and Green Christmas Beads on sale!

More pretty red and green glass gems are on sale through this weekend! And I deliberately chose (for this pic) jewels that are sheer – and foil backed. And different shapes. These could be combined in so many creative ways (that’s your thing!) – and of course there are many more to choose from in my Etsy shop.

Montana Sapphire Navy Blue Vintage Oval Glass Gems

Back in my shop! I love these navy blue oval glass gems for Fall (or anytime of course). They’re a deep blue, sheer with no foil backing, so they’re a little smoky but still catch the light. Love them!

They’re great for earrings “as is”, of course. Also – bracelet links, glass connectors, necklace “chains” – you name it! When I get a chance I’ll post some more pics of them in use.

Clear Glass Bracelet Design Idea – and a Special Offer

I made this bracelet to see how these totally clear glass cabochons would work as a bracelet. Their only color comes from the settings, and they’re not faceted – so how would they look? Would they have any sparkle?

And the answer is yes!

Now about that special I mentioned above! When you click on the pic you’ll find the clear octagons. The bracelet as shown is made with ten octagons. If you want to make this bracelet, you’d need 5 pairs. But if you order 4 pairs, just mention to me when you order that you’d like a free pair! It’s that simple.

Offer good through August 31, 2021 at midnight. Have fun making your bracelet! I think you’ll love it.

Peridot Glass Gems – great August gift ideas!

The birthstone gem for August is peridot. And it’s already August, so this idea is for those of us (yeah, I never do this) who need a nice birthday gift NOW. So – make a pretty pair of earrings or pendant. Peridot green, the August color. And they’re on sale in my shop!

For the next week – through Saturday, August 14, 2021 – when you buy peridot glass gems from my Etsy shop, you can get a free pair or pendant! Equal or lesser value is the only catch – and you have to mention this blog post (which is how you know about the sale!)

Clear Glass Jewels – a BOGO sale

Yes I’m having another BOGO sale – it’s a special I like to run every so often, especially if I’ve gotten in a large packet of clear jewels. So – I can offer a great sale – and people can really see how pretty and sparkly clear gems can be!

So from today through next Sunday, July 18, when you buy a pair of clear glass gems (or a pendant) – you get one for free! Just mention this psot when you order, and tell me what you want your freebie to be. This is a win!

Vintage amethyst glass jewels – on sale!

These gorgeous deep amethyst glass gems are vintage from the 1950s, I think – I’m using the paper they’re wrapped in as a reference (the paper has a New York phone number – and it *pre-dates* area codes!)

So aside from being true vintage, which is pretty wonderful – using stock that doesn’t have a new ecological footprint – they’re also gorgeous. Don’t you think?

And the sale I mentioned? From today through midnight on Saturday, July 10, 2021, when you buy a pair of these gorgeous octagons you can get one pair free. Or dicker for another pair of gems (equal or lesser value, you know how that works). Just make your order and send me a note to tell me what your free gems will be!

Make fabulous jewelry – and don’t spend a lot of money. Love it!
