Red glass jewels for Christmas – and a BOGO sale!

Yes, red is a Christmas color. That’s one of the reasons we’re looking specially at red teardrop jewels right now. But red’s gorgeous year-round and flattering to most people – that’s another (good) reason to keep it in mind.

DIY Earrings for Christmas gifts :-)

Of course these earrings wouldn’t have to be (just) for Christmas. They look good and you’ll wear them anytime. But they feel more Christmas-y because of the vivid red glass jewels. You know I think using jewels in prong settings, and adding chain for movement and texture, is a fine way to make earrings 🙂

Just to show you what I mean:

Naturally you could use any color or shape glass jewels. It’s just that the red is so pretty – and appropriate – this time of year!

Do it yourself jewelry. Make Christmas gifts they’ll love. And save money. See, this is a great Christmas idea!

DIY Earrings – new combo :-)

Okay, first, these are not just “Christmas earrings” or pendants. Emerald green is one of the most flattering colors you can choose, especially if it’s for a gift and you don’t know the person’s favorite color. Emerald is easy to wear, it doesn’t have sallow or yellow undertones, which can be tricky. So when in doubt? Emerald, or maybe turquoise, are super choices. And we just happen to have both those colors in this DIY earring design idea 😉

DIY earring design idea featuring aqua vintage glass ovals and emerald green faceted octagons

You’ll notice I’m using one of my favorite “tricks” (it’s not really) – combining opaque glass cabochons (the vintage aqua ovals) with faceted sparkling glass – the emerald green octagons. It’s just another example of “everything doesn’t have to be matchy-matchy”. And by accident (I didn’t notice until I was actually taking the pics!) I have them in two different color settings – patina brass for the emerald, and golden raw brass for the ovals.

You’re not supposed to do that – combine different color settings and all. Well darn. Why not try it?
