Sports Spirit Jewelry and Accessories

These are the necklace and the bracelet I made with volleyball charms. Why volleyball?
My sister-in-law Adrienne, her girls Juliana and Sofia play volleyball and they all really good players!
One day I went to see Sofia's game. I was inspired by a lot of young girls there play seriously. Later I checked sports theme items then found some good looking charms.
The heart charm I ordered has Swarovski Crystal AB so I added Swarovski crystal Art. 5000, 6m/m round beads to dangle on the necklace and the bracelet.
I also made key chains and cellphone charms too. I added a clasp on the cellphone charm, allow it add to necklace, bracelet, purses/bags, zipper pull whether you want.
The cellphone charm is made with 3D volleyball charm and Swarovski crystal Art. 5301 4m/m and 6m/m beads. There are 6 colors, Purple, Dark Blue, Aqua, Red, Clear and Black.

The Valentine's Day gift for my girl Erika

I made this ring for my daughter Erika for Valentine's. She is 11 years old. She likes fashion, accessories and of course loves Justin Bieber!
I thought she now might like a oversized ring like this. This is the only one ring designed and made just for her.
I used fire polished beads 3m/m and seed beads for the ring base. The three beaded rows makes 15m/m height.

Her middle name is Faith. So I buy charms or small stones with 'Faith' on them when I come across them. This silver charm is one of those.
I let her choose the colours she likes then added some sparkles with Swarovski crystals Art. 5301.

I showed her. She really liked it and kissed me "Thank you, mommy".
It's my pleasure sweetheart. Love U so much!


Purse Charm Cross - gift idea Ⅲ

It looks like a choker but it is a new purse charm featured cross.
I used a filagree cross for the main charm. I added some Swarovski crystals Art. 5301 and set CZ on the center of the filagree.
Also added a couple of Swarovski round rondells in a beaded string part as a design accent.

Vintage Rose / Jet / Topaz / Light Amethyst / Silk


Beaded Dangling Bookmark - gift idea Ⅱ

More bookmarks.
It has the dangling circle motif on the top and the fringe on the other end, made mostly with Swarovski crystals Art. 5301 and bronze colour fire polished beads.
Some of them were sold as Thank You gift for teacher or Birthday gift. My friend Angela told me she is considering to get one for her daughter.
Her grade 1 daughter really liked this bookmark. Angela thought it'll be a prize for her effort of reading. That's very nice. The perfect prize for the great reading!


Handcrafted Jewelled Bookmark - gift idea Ⅰ

These are bookmarks I made with a beautiful Swarovski crystal component Art. 4461, the fancy stone classical square. Looks like a genuine gemstone, don't you think? Its perfectly facetted surface add class to this design.
I got three different colours of them a couple years ago. I was going to make a necklace once but I stopped with some reasons. The size, 16m/m square is pretty big and thickness of this stone is unstable on the bust. I couldn't decide what do I make with them for a long time then finally decided to make a bookmark.

Indian Sapphire (sold) / Tanzanite (in stock) / Smoke Topaz (in stock)

The bookmark in the market...
there are a lot of different designs, materials and price ranges. I wanted to make something like a tresure. The result is simply beautiful and very special. I loved it. I want one for myself.
I think this would be a one-of a-kind gift for someone special for you. And it also would be an ideal gift for a great reader as well.
It made exclusively with Swarovski elements, Art. 4461 16m/m was framed with Art. 5000 6m/m and Art. 5301 4m/m and two of beads ball were made with Art. 5301.
