Smoky Topaz and Blue Zircon

I made these for my mother.  Her favorite colors are brown and turquoise so this was as close as I could get.  I hope she likes them.  I made them in a style I like so I am not too sure she will like the same thing.  I am not a big fan of brown but the colors compliment so well.  smoky topaz and blue zircon


White opal and blue zircon

I have a ton of blue zircon crystals.  They are such a pretty color against the paler or pastel colors.  I had one more pair of white opal stones and they looked so pretty together.  I have to get the earwires for the gold setting.  I’m more of a silver girl, never been a big fan of gold so I have to make myself make things in gold. These are very simple, I guess I need to work on making more elaborate designs since I want to sell these.opal and blue zircon

Swarovski AB crystals and Blue Zircon

These are some earrings I made yesterday.  I love how they came out.  The AB Crystals from Swarovski are just gorgeous. They reflect so many different colors.  The AB stands for Aurora Borealis, so that explains the many colors.  The blue just pops against it.  When I can get some small fuchsia crystals in, I’m duplicating this.  Contact me for price if you are interested in purchasing. AB and blue zircon

More jewelry!!

I am so excited.  It was kind of slow for me yesterday so I got to make some more jewelry pieces.  I promise I will eventually get away from leverback earrings (but they are my favorite).  I created a gallery on my Jewelry page so you can check it out.  My goal is to sell some pieces and take custom orders.  Please check it out and tell me if you think they are too simple.

My first pieces of jewelry!

I am so excited.  I made my first pieces of jewelry.  They are super simple but I like to start small and get more elaborate.  I have a hard time finding simple, small pieces that I like so I started making my own.  My preference is lever back earrings because I am on the phone a lot for my job and studs tend to stab me.  Anyway, I hope you like these.  As I get more pieces made, I will start selling them and taking custom color orders.

Hand-made Jewelry

In the next few weeks, I will be posting about jewelry that I am making.  I have a love of earrings but I think I’m gonna branch out into necklaces and earrings.  I have a hard time finding clean, simple, and colorful jewelry so I have decided to start making my own with Swarovski crystals.  I love Swarovski crystals, they are so vibrant and clear.  I know this blog started as a just a card blog but it has expanded to any craft I like.  I must apologize for how it seems like I’m all over the place on making stuff but I love to create and this will be just another medium for me.
