Clear Heart Earrings

It’s possible you might think that clear – I mean, totally transparent – earrings will have no pizzazz or presence. Let me argue with that idea!

These vintage glass hearts are nicely faceted, and when you combine faceting with the metal prong settings, you get jewels that will be noticed!

Pretty, romantic heart earrings (great gifts for her, if any of your guy friends are looking!) And you don’t have to spend a lot, or work hard, to make them. Add earwires and you’re good to go!

Red White and Blue Earrings – DIY Version 2

Just a quick example of another design featuring red, white, and blue glass jewels and beads. These beads might be in your stash right now – add the navy blue (sapphire) glass teardrops, hand-wire them to the beads (or create your own style) – and here you go, another terrific pair of July Fourth earrings !

You see what I mean? Grab a few glass elements, play with design and style, and make these earrings your own!

DIY red white and blue earrings for the Fourth of July!

Okay, I’ll say right up front that of course these earrings would look great year-round. But I was playing with faceted stones on my worktable, just trying new ideas, and these really would be perfect for the Fourth of July!

This easy DIY earring design is the result – find the right stones, add jump rings, and you’re good to go!

Make the design your own! Change sizes and shapes, and even colors – really the thing to remember is that it’s always a great time to try new ideas…

Aqua and emerald glass necklace design

This is a classic necklace design – made new with fresh elements! I’ve paired opaque aqua glass rondelles with a beautifully faceted emerald glass octagon pendant.

You don’t have to make a complex, fussy design to have gorgeous jewelry! You need great elements, basic skills, and an eye for good design. And you know you can personalize this idea with your own favorites – or the colors your customer requests. This is a win!
