Christmas Holiday Excitement

This is an exciting season for the jewelry maker and the jewelry buyer.  As a creator, my emphasis for this holiday season is to create jewelry pieces that evoke the joy and happiness that go with the Christmas holidays.  Reds, whites, and silver provide great fashion colors and lift the spirit for the holidays.  It's a great time to find the unique fashionable beads a wholesale shows and then create exciting jewelry pieces.  I have new red twisted glass beads matches with Swarovski light Siam crystals and crystal pearls as a brilliant necklace and earrings set.  Another set with red and silver foil diamond-shaped glass beads with silver and white beads is another stunning set.  These are great holiday pieces which can also work for year-round color matching sets.
For the traditional-minded, I also have red and green with crystal necklaces and earrings.
As so much of our focus is on retail, our display changes to add holiday excitement.  Local craft shows add to the the holiday spirit.  Customer interaction at local events is a rewarding time for us as we see customers who are proud to purchase our products to give as gifts.
You can always find a limited number of our items on our ArtFire Studio.  The full selection of our items is on display at our retail location every Monday:  Webster, FL market, building 3, booths 46 &48.
The next big local show will be at Water Oak, Lady Lake, FL on 12 and 13 February.

Swarovski Citrine Hoop Earrings
Weekends are for creativity--and for preparing for our Monday retail event.

These are only available at our Webster, FL retail location (Mondays).

The second set of earring adds a Swarovski 9x6 mm Swarovski black diamond crystal teardrop to the bottom and drops a 6 mm Swarovski black diamond xilion bicone from the top of the 1-inch gold plated brass hoop.  Swarovski 4 mm black diamond crystals balance the lower arc of the hoop.  Gold plated brass beads separate the elements.
Total length:  approximately 2 inches.

These black diamond earrings are available from our ArtFire studio and also from our Monday retail location, until sold.

We have over 300 jewelry pieces on display at our Monday retial location--a price and style to match your desires.
