Blog Bog

There is nothing worse than a dead blog. Promises to make daily or even weekly entries never seem to come to fruition. Today I will make an attempt to exorcise the reasons not to keep up with this blog and make yet again, another go at telling the world about jewelry, parts and design. One day at a time.

Hmmm let's go with green today in honor of St Patrick. Considering I have my corned beef and cabbage ready to roll for Saturday, let's get our bling on while we are at it.


Big Hoops inspired by the Poparazzi Basketball Wives craze and are wickedly hot and hard to keep in stock. Make some, sell some. Make more, sell more. This pair is in my BeadznBling shop and still available.

Another twist on the theme are these Celtic inspired dangle earrings made from antique brass findings and Czech crystals in emerald green.


This is all making me hungry as I now have corned beef and cabbage on the brain....off to go get some Guinness to compliment my Saturday celebration.

Who Doesn't Love Turquoise

This lovely piece was designed with all seasons in mind. It is a cool combination of teardrop turquoise magnesite beads and top quality white keshi / keishi pearls. It is a double 2 two strand necklace that I have twisted to intertwine the two strands. It is finished with a high quality sterling silver coin pearl box clasp. 17 1/2 inches long when lightly twisted. One of a kind and really lovely. Perfect for a beach wedding! You can purchase this item http://www.etsy.com/shop/BeadzNBling

Big, Bold, Beautiful Metalwork Earrings

Did I say big? This season, the bigger, bolder = better. Fashion trends are definitely in the F U N mode this year. Hoops, discs, chandeliers, drops. Metals, acrylics, chain, gemstones. The metal trends are still strongest with the antique silver / gunmetal black, copper and antique brass. All have been greatly publicised for high fashion and will be here through next year easily.

I think a great entry in the fashion world has been the addition of copper jewelry this year. With daily escalating sterling and gold prices, the alternate choices are arriving in great style.

Come on in a snoop around my Etsy shop to see all the new and hot earrings and jewelry for the fall season! www.beadznbling.etsy.com

Great jewelry, affordable, handmade artisan with love from me, to you.

Pearlicious June

I'm Lynn and my shop is www.beadznbling.etsy.com and I am a confirmed certifiable Bling-ologist! (AKA one that loves all things BLING) Although I am sneaking in on the end of the month, I just have to get a blurb in for the almighty pearl, June's birthstone.

♥ Purity ♥ Honesty ♥ Innocence ♥ Integrity ♥ Concentration
♥ Focus ♥ Meditation ♥ Tranquility ♥ Wisdom

Pearls Historically symbolic of purity, innocence and faith, pearls enhance personal integrity and help clear the mind so that it can be a clean channel for wisdom and spiritual guidance. They were once thought to be the tears of gods.

This gorgeous gemstone is highly coveted by all who touch them. They have the feel of liquid satin, the smell of the sea and the coolness to touch like no other gem. Pearls come in all colors and most are actually dyed or color enhanced, but regardless, are all beautiful in their own way.

I adore creating jewelry with pearls and have built an etsy.com shop just for my designs. www.beadznbling.etsy.com will take you to the wonderful world of pearl jewelry. Whether you seek a single strand of princess length pearls or a multi strand of wild colors, you will most likely find it here. If you don't see it, I would love to make it for you with custom work my forte.

A highlight of my creating is bridal or wedding party orders. From pure blissful simplicity to Harley Davidson biker chic, I've done it all. The newest trend in pearls wedding jewelry is for theme weddings like garden wedding or a beach wedding. It's so fun to get creative using the bride's vision as a guide.

Another fun project I am working on is my Bow Wow Meow Dog or Cat/Pet line of pearl necklaces. They are so fun and the pets can just feel how special these designs are. My designs are made from genuine freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystal pearls or gemstone beads. All items are finished off like a fine piece of jewelry and one that will be treasured for a long time.

Stop by my shop - I would love to create something by me, for YOU (or your pet) !
