Really I just think it’s a good idea to point out that you don’t have to spend a lot of time or money to have pretty jewelry. Of course you can – and I’m not talking just about precious gems. There are intricate, complex designs that can produce fabulous pretties.

But you don’t have to. Be easy on yourself sometimes. Find a pretty jewel, or a pretty combo like these in one setting. Figure out the colors you want. Add earwires. Done.

And they’ll be great. It really can be that simple. (And hey, click on the pic to see more combos that are ready in my shop – and remember you can ask to see others!)

Earring Design Idea – Neutral Glass Gems

I recently made a pair of earrings for a friend – and was reminded that it’s fun to use neutral colors sometimes. How often do you wear black and white, or tan and black? Yeah, me too. So I took some jewels that were already on my worktable, and tried a new design. Let me know what you think!

I think this is a good reminder to me – and to my friends and customers too. Get out of the rut sometimes? I love color, so I tend to move toward using vivid colors in jewelry. And that’s fine, and works well. But gray is strong – and neutral. Combining neutrals works too!

One of the nicest things about these earrings (aside from that sparkle!) is that they are not large, and not heavy to wear. The diamond shape gems are just 10x10mm (approx. 3/8″) and the round jewels are 8mm – that’s about 1/4″.

These will be noticed. These would be beautiful for a bride. Or at work, even. They aren’t “in your face”. They’re lovely. And comfortable. And easy to DIY. This is a win, you know?
