Fall Jewelry -Already?!

I know. I know. It's only summer -what am I doing putting up jewelry that is reminiscent of autumn? Well, in my world of artistic design, I make what feels right and comes together -what ever season that it may be. So you will find that I tend to post summer style jewelry in fall and winter and vice-versa. Weird, maybe. But it's my style.

New to the Crystal Allure online jewelry boutique is the Fernwood Forest Heart Leaf Pendant Beaded Necklace. The color of these green garnet gemstones is just beyond words. I also liked the Karen Hill Tribe heart-shaped leaf pendant as it added to the charm that I love nature and the colors of nature incorporated in this design. I'm positive you'll love it too!
While shopping don't forget to check out all the other new beaded jewelry designs.

Well, I'm off to get ready to pick up my niece for the week (I doubt I'll get much done this week!) and as usual I'm running behind schedule. Happy Shopping!

New Bridal Set Added -Bridal Jewelry Or Not?!

Now available on the Crystal Allure jewelry e-boutique is a beautiful beaded necklace set that screams for a just as lovely Bride. I'm not big on labeling jewelry pieces as Bridal jewelry because for me, I'm able to see that you can equally wear the same piece casually with jeans and a nice shirt. Although I have labeled these three jewelry pieces as Bridal jewelry, take a moment and consider one (or all) piece(s) with your favorite outfit.

The Frosted Crystal Bridal Jewelry Set can be purchased individually as a necklace, bracelet, earrings or as a 3-piece set. Remember, you'll SAVE when you buy the 3-piece jewelry set!

Personally, I prefer sets as I can wear one piece or all (and when I do want to wear all coordinating pieces, I have them!).

You will find most beaded jewelry pieces under our Crystal Ice Collection suitable for Brides or as casual everyday jewelry!

NEW Chocolate Pearl Honey Jade Gemstone Beaded Bracelet

I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day with their dads! My husband and I actually spent father's day with my dad the weekend prior and then his dad this past saturday. Worked out perfect and other than the pouring rain this past saturday night, both days with our dads was great.

I took some time saturday morning to take some pictures of finished jewelry and was able to get one beaded bracelet posted. I'm a perfectionist and pictures have always been the one thing that is never perfect for me. Although I'm kinda likin' the black background -it just doesn't work with all of the jewelry. Sometimes you just gotta have a white background to showcase how beautiful the beads are!

So I take the picture of the bracelet below and I'm likin' it. Then I posted it and realize the picture for the complimentary pair of earrings, to this bracelet, isn't as nice as I once thought! When I took that picture I thought it was so great, now that the bracelet is pictured (and I'm even more knowledgeable on my camera) the earrings don't look as nice. Gotta fix that....

But for now, one of the new beaded bracelets posted is the Bronze Pearl Honey Jade Gemstone Beaded Bracelet. An alluring combination of chocolate-y freshwater pearls and warm honey jade gemstones, all accented with gold filled beads.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more new jewelry!

Happy as a Clam Customer

I love to hear back from my customers and how much they love their pieces. This feedback comes from a woman who purchased a beaded watch and requested two more. Read about her Summertime Seashells custom watch designs. Thank you Pat and it was my pleasure! Enjoy your new watches!

Just wanted to let you now that the watches arrived today. I can't believe they are even more beautiful in person than the picture. Thank you so much for working with me - it will be difficult deciding each morning which one of the three to wear.

I'm sure I will be in touch again soon for something else - probably a bracelet.

Custom Beaded Watch -Summertime Seashells!

A returning customer requested a handmade beaded watch featuring the white Czech clam shell pearlized bead that was used in a previous bracelet design of ours.

To change it up for summer and add a bit of glam to the design we created a template design using a blue satin Swarovski Crystal. But while looking at our bead inventory we noticed some Aventurine gemstone heishi beads and thought that might look just as nice. So we created separate design templates using both colors and she loved both so much and couldn't decide, that her custom bead watch request turned into two!

Hazy Day Clam Shell Crystal Beaded Watch (W013)
An elegant combination of pearlized Czech glass clam shell beads, satin blue Swarovski Crystals, and sterling silver Bali beads lend a fresh look to a hazy day at the beach. Geneva quartz white watch face. Beaded watch measures 8-1/4".

Seamist Czech Shell Beaded Watch (W015)
Seamist. Two strands of pearlized Czech shell beads and aventurine gemstones offer the perfect complement to a Narmi designer quartz white watch face dotted in what could be the seashells peaking out of the sand on a beautiful sunkissed beach. Sterling silver Bali beads. Beaded watch measures 8-14/".
