New Styles of Handmade Jewelry Are Being added to DRD online
I was going through my work room the other day and I realized that I have enough jewelry making supplies to open up my own Hobby Lobby. I mean, seriously...I have tons of crystals, tons of jewelry making findings. Plus cabinets full to the brim with soap making supplies, car candle supplies and T shirt making decals. What to do first?
Well, my favorite is jewelry, so I pulled out the Swarovski crystals and have added a few fun earrings and rings to my online collection. The crystals that I use are 100% Genuine Swarovski and the ring and earring findings are imported from Israel, so all are very good quality.
When I make earrings or rings, I typically use a 12mm cushion cut Swarovski Crystal or a 12mm round Rivoli Swarovski Crystal. I like to pick unusual color Swarovski stones or the latest styles released each season from Swarovski. One year, Swarovski came out with a patina line and it continues to be my favorite because all of the stones look like mercury glass. They made the most GORGEOUS earring/ring sets ever. I may have a few of the stones left ...but I may have to get more because they are fabulous.
A few colors from Swarovski continue to be all time DRD online favorites. They are:
- AB aka Aurora Borealis ~ Think of a clear crystal with heavy undertones of pinks and purples when the light hits it just right.
- Rose Opal ~ This is a pale pink with tons of fiery opalescent brilliance beneath the surface. Truly stunning and impossible to capture with pictures.
- Paradise Shine~ I can't think of a better name for Swarovski to describe this crystal. It's paradise to look at. Its a pale green mixed with a pale purple and they can be either or both colors depending on the light. Once again, pictures can't capture this stunner.
So, those are a few of our best sellers on the Dirt Road Divas website. We also have an Etsy store so check some of these out. We have tons more including a brand new Peacock Eye Rivoli Swarovski. I have it on a copper earring base and I think we just have one left.
