Labradorite is a type of Feldspar, known for its natural flashes of light it has come with many names…

Black Moonstone, Blue Pearl, Falcons Eye, and Blue Emerald to name a few.  It has become one of my favorite Gemstones because of it’s natural beauty.  Here are a few pieces I have In my shop featuring Labradorite.

These are slightly different from what I usually make but again, I love the earthy blends!

I have recently, over the last year discovered Czech glass beads.  They are remarkable in quality, selection and style.   I am drawn to earthy colors, so their Picasso line makes me go a little crazy with my jewelry making.  I have been dying to put together a couple of jewelry making tutorials but haven’t had a minute yet to just do them!  I was thinking maybe they could be about wire wrapping briolettes and maybe making handmade ear wires.

What do you think?

This gorgeous pink earthy Czech teardrop I found from an Etsy seller, the only place I saw this particular one. The pictures don’t give this drop justice, it’s just lovely.

 

 

 

 

So these beaded bracelets I’ve been making with gemstones and Czech glass have become sort of my newest love. These are listed in my beaded jewelry shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/beadedgemshop

Orange wire wrapped earrings!

Ooh I just love these luscious orange crystal earrings…they make me think of fall. Funny I should be thinking of spring. I love oxidizing copper wire after the earrings are wrapped. It gives off a beautiful two tone look that really stands out and makes your friends say…where did you get those?

These rings make great gifts, aren’t to difficult to make and only take some wire, a ring mandrel and a swarovski crystal bead.

Swarovski crystals come in so many different colors and cuts you are bound to find one for everyone!

Fun and trendy gemstone stackable bracelet sets!

I love gemstone beads, love them!  The weight of them, the colors, textures, and shapes are endless.  Doing a little research on the newest trends I stumbled across stackable bracelets, not just beaded…bangles, cuffs, chains, leather, braided…whatever, stack em up!

My love for gemstones landed me to these creations, and now I am addicted.

My new blog

August 5, 2012 § Leave a comment

Hi world!

I just started this blog to further move my jewelry into a new dimension, the blogging  world.  I’ve never been known to be a writer, but I’ll give this a shot.  I love to work with gemstones, mostly semi precious so I can keep the prices low and comfortable for my customers.  Swarovski crystals are a must! The Best quality and the best value out there, if you see a crystal in a piece of mine, it’s a Swarovski.  Glass beads are next using the best quality Czech glass beads, lampwork beads and fire polished beads available.  I love supporting Etsy jewelry supply dealers and try so hard to keep my purchases within the United States supporting the small business owners.  My etsy shop is here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/Gendrea
