Falling Leaf Earrings

These fun dangle earrings are perfect for fall or all year round!  I love silver colored jewelry, so when I found these leaf charms, I had to have them!  I put them together with some clear-colored Czech glass beads for a classic, elegant look that goes great with all outfits.

I also have a falling leaf charm bracelet and a pair of owl earrings that I'm adding to my shop for the fall season and perhaps a couple more pairs of petites!

Posting at these blog parties!

Advertising and Swaps

I'm not currently purchasing ad space, as my shop is small and I have a small budget at the moment.  However, I'd be happy to discuss an ad swap. I have lots of followers on my main blog Simply Sweet Home, and I'd love to display your button or etsy mini there in exchange for having my ad or etsy mini displayed on your page.

I also may be willing to discuss sponsoring a blog giveaway or exchanging giveaways. (I host a giveaway for you. You host a giveaway for me.)

We could also do an  item review swap, or even just an item swap if you'd like.

Feel free to contact me at simplysweethome@hotmail.com or send me a convo on etsy to discuss.

Cupcake Necklaces & Charms

Cupcakes! Get your cupcakes here! Okay, it’s not real cupcakes. It’s cupcake jewelry. I bought these adorable little cupcake charms back a few minutes ago, and I decided to offer them in my etsy shop along with a ball chain.

The cupcake is chocolate (brown) with strawberry (pink) frosting. And of course white sprinkles!

Because there’s no actual work involved in this, I’m selling the cupcake charm and chain for the cost of materials. I currently have one for sale in my shop, but I also have another one I can add if anybody is interested in them.

I can also substitute the ball chain for a slide chain if you prefer. And if anyone would like the charms without the chains, I can revise the price for you. Just let me know!

I've been featured at the following blogs.

I'll be sure to post it here, and I'll be add your link to the new "Featured" page I just created as well!  I'd also be happy to do an ad swap with you.  If you're interested, please email me!

Fancy Black Memory Wire Bracelet

Sometime ago I listed one of my favorite bracelets that I’ve made. I call it the Little Black Dress Bracelet, or Little Black Bracelet, if you will. The listing for it is about to expire, but I may relist it.

It’s a memory wire bracelet made Czech glass beads and metal spacers. The coloring on these is so remarkable. They are shiny and black, with swirls of red, green, and gold on them. Very pretty!

And I’ve also just listed a pair of matching earrings. When I make earrings I try to only make things that I would wear myself. For this reason, most of my earrings are small and simple, yet elegant with a touch of whimsy and fun. I think these definitely fit into that category.

Personally I would wear this bracelet and earring set with any black outfit. They’d be perfect with dress wear or everyday wear. And the other colors that are swirled in to the beads make this set perfect to go with colored outfits as well. Very versatile!

Check out my etsy store at http://jhrivers.etsy.com/ for more cute jewelry at great prices!

On Sale - Orange Crush Bracelet

Ordinarily I'm not real big on orange, but I really love how all the different shades of orange work together in this bracelet.  This is one of the first stretchy-cord bracelets I made.  The beads are made from different materials, some glass, some lampwork, some plastic. This is designed for casual wear.  It's very fun and very cute!

Listing for this bracelet will expire Wednesday. I've reduced the price down to $4.50 (+shipping). Not sure if I will relist, unless someone requests the item.

Butterfly Dance Charm Bracelet

This is one of the first charm bracelets I made.  The Butterfly DanceCharm Bracelet features every color of the rainbow. It would go wonderfully with dress clothes or casual wear, and it will add personality and flair to any outfit. It is available in my etsy shop here, and the listing is set to end on Aug 6.

This bracelet features 4 pewter butterfuly charms and 10 colored bead charms. The bracelet measures 7.5 inches and has a lobster clasp.

If you like this design, I can also do a special order with your favorite color(s) of beads.
