Buying Vintage Jewelry Online

Buying jewelry online: Parure

Jewelry has been around since the early stages of civilization. In the beginning, it was used for magical protection, good luck, and warding off evils, but also for aesthetic purposes – we humans have been vain since the dawn of time! Considering how long jewelry has been around and the popularity it has enjoyed through […]

Holiday Gift Guide: Jewelry Making

Holiday Gift Guide Jewelry Making

Jewelry making is so much fun, and many projects are surprisingly easy! I remember the thrill I felt when I made my first bracelet; it was very basic, made with inexpensive materials, but it came out so pretty and took barely any time at all to make. We have put together a collection of our […]

Charmed Bracelets And Necklaces For Mother’s Day

When I was (much) younger and asked my Mom what she wanted for Mother’s Day, she always replied “a hug and nice children”. Easy to give and I was happy to do so, but of course she deserved more than that. Even at a young age, I realized that being a Mom is not an […]

Great New Offers From Stella & Dot and Links of London

It’s a new year and the craziness of the holidays are behind us. Everyone is back at work and school, and frankly, things feel a bit drab after all the glitz and glamour of holiday parties and all that time off. And this really is the dreariest part of winter – cold and dark, and […]

Christmas And Winter Holiday Charms And Beads – Santa’s Sleigh

Few things are as symbolic of Christmas in American culture as Santa traveling across the dark winter sky in his sleigh pulled by reindeers.

Rose Quartz Charms, Bracelets And Pendants

Pretty, powder pink rose quartz is THE gemstone when it comes to love, so I thought this would be a good time to feature it, with Valentine’s Day around the corner. Rose quartz is (obviously) part of the quartz family (which also includes, among others, amethyst, opal, and citrine) and comes in colors ranging from […]

New Pandora Charms and Beads

Everyone is releasing new items and holiday collections this time of year, and Pandora is no exception. Their new holiday collection is all about glitz and glam, and I really like it. New beads include five new Pave beads – round beads pave set with glittering cubic zirconias in different colors (clear, blue, black, brown […]

How To Make Paper Beads

Paper bead bracelet

It’s really kind of crazy how many catalogs we get in the mail, especially this time of year. I like leafing through many of them, but pretty and inspirational as they are, I don’t really need 30 Pottery Barn or Sundance catalogs in one year. Every time I put a pile of them in the […]

The New Holiday Collection From Trollbeads

As usual, autumn is zipping by at the speed of light, and it’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is only a week away… Time to get gift lists in order and start shopping! Trollbeads released their latest holiday collection, and I have to say, it’s one of my favorites to date. There is a little bit of […]
