Midnight Blue Round Jade Azteca Earrings

These Mexican inspired Azteca earrings are 1.5 inches long.

Materials used in this exquisite design are blue jade semi precious stones which are accented by lead free pewter findings.

This unique design would complement any outfit from dress to casual jeans.

If you have a favorite semi precious stones you would like instead of jade, please let me know. Will customize:)


Get Your Shop Noticed!

Last month seemed really slow everywhere for anyone to sell anything! The group of gals I promote with was probably starting to feel down and out as well.

I thought for awhile and came up with the idea of have theme gallery posts. My husband came up with the name, Crafted By Hands. Then the blog finally took shape. So far we are 7 posts in and each gallery looks so AWESOME!

This is was made for everyone looking to get themselves out there. All it takes is some time from you to add your link. Themes change every weekday to keep it fresh. If you want to see a certain theme, you can always let me know too. The more you take part, the more fun it will be:)

I have gotten great reviews and support that I think this is a good way to go and will benefit everyone involved!

So, if you haven't stopped by yet then YOU MUST! Come link it up!


Glass Blue Green Pendant Gold Chain Necklace

The gold chain necklace is 18 inches highlighted with bright green glass beads and blue cone Swarovski crystals.

The glass rectangle pendant is 2.5 inches long and .75 inches wide. This pendant has color swirls of blue, bright green or lime green and black. Mingled in the swirls are gold foils that bring the colors together.

This would look great against sold colors and add some punch in the soon to be Fall and Winter wardrobe.

Earrings - Amethyst Flying Heart Fringe Chain Danglers

These rocker like earrings are 2.5 inches long. The design of the flying or fluttering heart reminds me of falling in love.

I accented the metal flying heart with lovely round amethyst stones above it. Then I added silver metal chains at the tail end giving it more of a dramatic rocker look. The whole ensemble is wire wrapped onto silver plated french hook wires.

If you like the design but have a favorite stone that you would like to replace the amethyst, let me know:)

Hand Blown Twisted Pink Glass Cluster Earrings

Here are my newest addition to the earring section.  These silver toned earrings are wire wrapped together and is 3 inches long.

The pink glass beads are hand blown with with a twist. Inside the pink beads are silver foil with hint of copper shimmer. On the surface of the bead is a decorative leaf print painted in purple and white.

The piece is then finished off with a beautiful cluster of white glass beads that are wire wrapped onto a chain.

These would look great with your jeans, skirt or dress:)

If you have any questions, please convo me.

The Outcome of the Custom Blue Shell Bracelet

Just sent this lovely bracelet and earrings into the mail today! YAY! I love that feeling:) Your art piece traveling international to their new owner.

I am not sure if I will list the oval hoop earrings with my Etsy listing...what do you think?

I also need to either make or buy some Thank you cards as well...the hunt is on:)

I have been working on a new earring project with funky colored seed beads. I have been stringing these little beads as my cat looks on in hopes of me dropping them. Hopefully, I will be finished soon then I can show you guys. But til then I have another pink pair of earrings to share. It will be up soon, I just have to come up with a name for them. Maybe the name will appear in my dreams??
