Heart Stamping Tags – Make Personalized Jewelry!

Stamping tags are a wonderful way to add a personalized touch to your jewelry. I just got in these cute heart shaped tags and I’m going to make some gifts!

Add them to small jewels or beads to make personalized earrings, or perhaps to a pendant. Or use several to spell out the name of your bestie. Or make presents with the initials of her kids.

You get the idea – there are lots of fun, easy ways to make personalized jewelry!

(I’m going to add a few pics in the days coming up – just showing examples of some of my favorite designs!)

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.

New DIY Earring Design Idea

Last night I tried this combination of amethyst and emerald glass jewels – and discovered it was fabulous!

this isn’t a color combination you necessarily expect to see – which I think is one great reason to try it. Also – if I had a fabulous purple sweater, I’d definitely try it with dark green skirt or pants. They aren’t “matching” but they would complement each other. And it’s just fun to try new colors!

Like these. Really, aside from being a fun combo, it reminds us to TRY stuff. Can’t hurt. Might be great!

Crystal Glass Gems – on sale!

Crystal rhinestone gems are a jeweler’s secret weapon. When they’re well cut (and these are) they have a wonderful clarity and sparkle. They always look good. They are always in style. They make wonderful jewelry for brides – or for any special occasion. And for this week, in my shop they’re on sale!

Click on the pic to find more styles – the ones in the pic are a small sample of the styles I have available right now! For this sale, when you buy one pair (or pendant) – you get one free! Just let me know which freebie you want, when you order.

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!)

There are lots more peridot glass gems in my shop than are shown in this pic – just click on the pic to see more. And don’t wait, it’s only while my supplies last – and you’ve got that birthday girl to gift!

(Tell her I said happy birthday too. Just because!)

Black Glass Pendant and Earring Beads – on Sale!

Let’s try an actual list of positives here:

(1) Black goes with everything. Well, pretty much.

(2) Black is always in style. Again – pretty much (or always, I think I was right the first time).

(3) Fall is coming and darker colors work great in Fall.

(4) Not to mention if you make gifts, specially when you don’t know your giftee’s “favorite color” – black always works.

(5) Right now, these wonderful pendant and earring jewels are on sale!

It’s easy – buy that pendant anytime this week (through Saturday, July 31) – and you get the round earring jewels for free! The only catch is you have to mention this blog post. Easy peasy!

(Good while supplies last, this week only – you know the drill)

Peridot and Aqua DIY Earrings

This is just a quick note that, drum roll, color is wonderful! Use it. Try it. Play with it!

The earrings shown here combine three (slightly) different colors from peridot to light blue to aqua. Of course you could use any combination of colors – the point is, to try ideas. Some of them won’t work, but some of them will be wonderful!

Clear Glass Jewels – a BOGO sale

Yes I’m having another BOGO sale – it’s a special I like to run every so often, especially if I’ve gotten in a large packet of clear jewels. So – I can offer a great sale – and people can really see how pretty and sparkly clear gems can be!

So from today through next Sunday, July 18, when you buy a pair of clear glass gems (or a pendant) – you get one for free! Just mention this psot when you order, and tell me what you want your freebie to be. This is a win!

Peridot Green Pendant – Necklace Design Idea

This is one of my favorite necklace designs. Use whatever pendant you like best – in this case, it’s a sparkling peridot green pear.

So aside from the fact that it looks great, if you look closely you can see that the peridot teardrop hangs from a loop of silvery chain that matches the multiple strands of necklace chain (stainless steel chain in this case). And – the pendant is removeable! You could make several pendants of your choice, slip one off the necklace chain and replace it with the color you want to wear, today.

Oh, and the peridot shown here is the birthstone color for August. Just in case you need an August birthday gift!
