Handmade Jewelry

Handmade jewelry is a great gift for birthdays, bridesmaids, Mother's Day, etc. My handmade jewelry is made of glass or crystal. It's colorful, unique, inexpensive and stylish. It is amazing to me that people are so crafty and can make such beautiful things. For all things handmade, check out http://www.etsy.com/. They have a little bit of everything.

Etsy has sellers, each with their own store-kind of like the handmade version of EBay. In Markus Berkner Jewelry, I found this beautiful Climbing Vines Garnet and Silver Pendant. This unique necklace is $24.00 plus shipping. Garnet is also the birthstone for January-something to keep in mind.

I thought this bracelet was really unusual. It is also on Etsy in beadiful designs for $28.00 plus shipping. The bracelet will also arrive packaged in a jewelry box ready for gifting!

I don't wear earrings a lot myself, but a lot of people won't leave home without them. Frog Garden Designs has a really pretty set of earrings. They are a mix of brown, green/blue, pearl and topaz with a sterling silver earwire to create a very elegant piece for only $8.00 plus shipping.

Note: Make sure that you check the seller rating for each seller on etsy.com before ordering. Also, most sellers accept PayPal which is what I use for a little extra protection for online shopping.
Happy Gifting!
