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.

And as you know I like to do – there’s a BOGO sale (buy one, get one free). From now through midnight on Friday, September 3, 2021, just mention to me when you order that you’d like a free pair. It’s that simple!

While supplies last. You know: don’t wait too long!

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!)

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?
