Thistle Flower Earrings

by Melissa Grakowsky Shippee

Light and airy just like thistle flowers. They are also elegant with a pop of color! The opalescent bicone crystal beads set off the pink bicone beads, which are artfully accented by subtle blue, gold and green seed beads.

The bonus? This design is reversible! Flip the earrings over and you can see the crystal rivoli the beads have captured through Melissa’s clever stitching pattern.

 

 

 

 

Bellagio bracelet

by Monica Vinci

Perfect for wearing to the Bellagio, if you find yourself heading to Vegas. This handmade crystal jewelry bracelet would also be perfect with any outfit, including jeans – I would even wear this to the office! The description for this stunner reads “dazzling rows of aquamarine rivolis bezeled with pearls, framed with deep red crystals in this ornate and beautiful cuff.” I’d say that’s spot on!

Handmade Crystal Jewelry Confection Cuff

by Csilla Csirmaz

I can see this being crystal laden cuff worn out on the town during a special Valentine’s dinner. The bezels are made using graduated sizes of galvanized seed beads which, to me, gives a bubbly effect. Maybe a hint at some champagne? Love it!
