New Line...Personalized Jewelry

Personalized Jewelry...

New from Beaded Bauble




Featured photo (left) shows sterling silver initial hearts with fancy, interlocking jump rings available in silver or gold. These initial hearts dangle from a delicate box chain sterling silver necklace available in 16" or 18" lengths.


This necklace is perfect for a more subtle look and can be layered with other pieces, worn with t-shirt and jeans or dressed up for work.



Leather & Sterling...

A Beautiful Combination




I am smitten with the way the sterling silver looks with leather...the contrast of bright and shiny against the dark, textured natural leather is beautiful. I have created a few necklaces and bracelets combining theses two. I always use high-quality, Greek leather and finish each piece with sterling end caps and handmade sterling clasps for an artisan detail.
Crystals and pearl baubles can be added for extra flair and charm. View the entire personalized line of jewelry at Beaded Bauble. New personalized designs added often. Custom orders, as always, are welcome.

Personalized Jewelry Coming Soon!

I am very excited to be offering a whole new line of my jewelry designs...personalized jewelry. These will be sterling silver, hand stamped necklaces and bracelets which will feature your choice of hand stamped initials, names (usually your children's but I'm open) or any special words & charms...anything you want.

The new personalized jewelry line will be available to view mid February. Most pieces will be custom-order but there will be some beautiful hand stamped generic items for sale too.

These will make wonderful gifts for anniversaries, bridal party, mother's day, daughter's birthday. I've already given a few away to my daughter's friends using Tiffany style hearts.

I was fortunate enough to acquire a much sought after lower case font for stamping. You will see this fun font displayed, along with traditional upper case in varying sizes.

Stay tuned!

Pearl Wire Wrapped Rings



Pink Pearl Ring

$16.00



There is something so feminine about pearls. They are elegant and timeless, not to mention versatile and lovely.


Pearl also make great beads to wire wrap into rings. With just a couple of notes. It is difficult to find a pearl, large enough, with a large enough hole to accomodate 20 guage wire.


This is where you have a couple of options. You can either drop your wire down to 22 guage but it is not recomended to use a lower gauge due to the lack of strength and structure for the ring.


Or, you can use Swarovski crystal pearls with large holes. That is what I have used here. Swarovski's crystal faux pearls have a leaded crystal core that makes them heavier, and Swarovski's pearl coating is similar to a natural pearl lustre and is consistent in color.


It is also resistant to perspiration, UV rays, perfumes, scratches and washing and warms to the skin like real pearls do.There is nothing lovelier than a freshwater pearl in a wire wrapped ring.


The next time you are at a bead shop or attend a bead show, bring along a snippet of 20 guage wire and hunt out pearls that will fit the wire...you'll have a better selection which will result in pretty rings with organic shapes.
