Beautiful Jewelry Finds on Etsy - Part 1, Necklaces

There are so many wonderful jewelers on Etsy there really is no need for mass produced.  Here are some gorgeous finds that would be a perfect treat for you or a great gift for a friend.  This is Part 1 of a 3 part series.

I will start by sharing some necklaces that are truly unique finds.

This first piece features genuine sea glass in a deep teal color and is set in sterling silver.

This next piece features sky blue floral design set in antiqued brass and topped with glass cabochon.

The next pendant is black features dichroic glass in orange, yellow and blue.  I love the abstract picture in the orange and yellow section.  It's like a fiery forest and just beautiful.

This pendant features real hydrangea that was pressed and dried before being set in handmade paper.  A truly unique creation.

This next necklace is a beautiful and bold amethyst necklace featuring five large stones set between Swarovski crystals that make a statement.

This next handmade necklace features mustard yellow felted beads made using merino wool and set between wooden and acrylic beads.

Last, but certainly not least, is this beautiful pendant made from white and cream polymer clay with a lovely lace texture design.

That is just a small sampling of some of the lovely jewelry out there.  Stay tuned next week for Part 2, Rings in my 3 Part series.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Fun Hats and Glassess

I wear glasses so I always enjoy looking at old frames.  I also live in Chicago, where the winters are cold so a stylish hat is also a must.  I hope you enjoy this collection of hats and glasses.
