Tag Archives: Swarovski crystals

I love Swarovski crystals!  I enjoy making Christmas tree earrings out of them.  I like to make them so they look like the tree is on a stand, and there is tinsel on the tree. Here are several of them that I made:

Hi!  How is your spring going?  We’ve had beautiful weather here is southern California, lately.  This weather makes me want to plant flowers!  This lovely weather has also  caused me to create some flower designs.  Below are the flowers designed by me.  Each flower has a “critter” below it.  It was fun making lucite flower designs with butterflies, dragonflies, hummingbirds and bumble bees accompanying them.  The lucite beads are “stacked” for this flower effect.  I used 22 gauge silver filled wire for the flowers, and 20 gauge silver filled wire for the handmade fancy ear wires.  Each flower has a 6mm or 8mm Swarovski crystal below it.

I now have 38 jewelry items in my Etsy shop.  My newest flower designs are among them.  You can see five different views of each design there:  www.embellishedcharms.etsy.com.  Ask me about my 20% discount for first orders, for my blog readers.  Thank you so much readers, for taking the time to read my blog.  I’d love to hear from you!  There is a comments form below.  Happy Spring!

I love taking white rose lace and turning it into pink roses with green leaves!  It is really enjoyable to paint with satin and glitter acrylic paint.  I also formed the ear wires, using silver filled 20 gauge wire.  There are pink 6 mm Swarovski crystals on the ear wires, also.

I made a pair for myself and wore them with my pink and red blouse on Valentine’s Day.  The earrings are larger than I usually wear, but they were so colorful and light, that I really enjoyed wearing them.  More fun to come!
