Black glass jewels – and a BOGO sale

You know I do these every so often – BOGO sales, buy-one-get-one-free sales. Of course it’s a bid to attract new customers – or give a special deal to customers who are checking my blog. It works for me either way. I like to remind my customers of some of the great deals they can get in my shop – and I want new customers to see, and find, the quality and value I try hard to maintain 🙂

And all of a sudden it’s Fall (temp dropped 30-40 degrees in the last 2 days!) and winter is coming. And holidays. And black is always hot, right?

black glass jewels available in my shop

I would bet each of us could use a new pair of black earrings – and that includes your besties, and mom, and you. So from now until midnight on Wednesday, October 7, 2020, when you order any black glass jewels in my shop (pair of jewels, or pendant) you get a second pair free. After you order, just leave a “Note to Seller” and tell me the freebie you want. Equal or lesser value and all that, and limited to supplies on hand. There, that’s the official stuff.

The fun stuff is new jewelry at a great price!

Emerald green teardrop jewels set…for Christmas gift ideas and more

I know it’s early to be thinking of Christmas, but this is a weird year. If you could find some affordable jewelry components that would make a lovely necklace and earrings set, and you could do it easily, and it could be personalized however you chose, and it would be a wonderful gift – that would be a good idea.

So I put together some sheer emerald pears and hey, here’s that necklace and earring jewels set!

Of course it would work any time of year, for yourself or for gifts. Or customers. But Christmas really is coming, and why not save yourself a little time and work and make something wonderful – and easy? That’s a win!

New necklace design idea – make it your own!

So here’s a necklace design idea I really like:

necklace design idea featuring opaque glass jewels in ovals and teardrop shapes

The style is classic, really – oval cabochons leading to a teardrop shaped centerpiece. But you can have so much fun, mixing colors, maybe styles, shapes, you name it! Take the idea – and make it yours…!

And whatever design and ideas you use, it’s great to make Christmas prezzies for your friends and loved ones – and you save money at the same time. Love that idea!

Vivid glass octagons – DIY earrings

You know one of the design ideas that I embrace is using different shapes, different textures, different materials? Well I hate to be totally consistent (predictable) – so this time I’m advocating using multiple jewels of the exact same shape and size:

These earrings are long enough – and large enough – to be noticed, but they aren’t heavy at all. And of course can be customized with whatever oolors you like best – or your customer loves – maybe the birthstone colors of her kids. That sort of customization is fun and kind of wonderful. And that personalization makes these DIY earrings a great gift idea (just saying!)

And the jewels here are different colors, so they’re not all matchy-matchy. That counts, right?

DIY Earring Design

It was late at night, I was playing around with glass jewels on my worktable and this design evolved:

As always, take the idea and run with it – using your own choice of shapes and colors. The jump rings add good movement, don’t you think?

Of course, shop here to find beautiful glass gems (and more jewelry supplies!). And mention this blog post to get a free pair of jewels 🙂
