Chic Bracelets and jewelry from Sublime Gems

I just got the coolest new bracelet from Sublime Gems on Etsy!  

Perfect for upcoming Valentine's Day!  And even better yet?!  They are totally affordable, so would make a great gift for anyone!  I myself would love to have a bunch to have stacked on my arm and she's got a ton of charms to choose from.  You are SURE to find something for everyone!  I can also see it being the perfect little gift for a young girl - they look expensive, but you don't have to worry about her losing it!  A majority of her pieces are UNDER $10!  Brilliant!

The bracelet I got has white plastic beads, a dark purply mystic crystal bead sitting next to a goth chic gold tone skull charm.  Anyone who knows me knows I love the contrast of skulls and something dainty and delicate!  A very modern way for anyone to wear a piece that's considered a little out there!

Comes in an adorable, and totally re-usable for anything organza bag!

here's a close-up of the charm!  Love it!

My wrist is small and it fits great!  I love how the bracelet stretches so it fits virtually any wrist size.  Also, Sublime Gems can absolutely customize the size for you if you email
her prior to your order!  Love it!

I can imagine having a few to stack!

Isn't it so awesome?!

Check out some other items Sublime Gems has in her Etsy shop that I love!

I love the spotted feldspar stone bracelet with the little gun charm!  At $12, a steal!

And for the angel in your life, how about a wing necklace?

Seriously adorable jasper elephant charm bracelet!

Larissa's Handcrafted Jewelry GIVEAWAY ends 1/30

It is my pleasure to bring you another awesome etsy shop!

Please let me introduce you to Larissa, who runs Larissa's Handcrafted Jewelry.  She makes gorgeous pieces that I looooove!  Larissa, please tell us a little about yourself...

I am a stay at home mom for 3 wonderful children ages 9, 6, and 4.  I started making jewelry originally just for myself and for my family.  I began selling at jewelry parties and craft shows about 3 years ago and last year decided to venture online and opened my shop on Etsy.

You will not find any plastic or acrylic in my jewelry. I put a lot of myself into my work and would rather not cheapen it by using plastics.  I love working with lampworked glass beads and with various semiprecious stones with Agate and Jasper being my favorites due to the wonderful variety of colors and patterns found in them. I often get inspiration from the beads and cabachons themselves and although at times I do sketch out what I want a certain piece to look like I  find that sometimes the piece itself calls for a different look or feel at which time I will modify it from the original plan until it "feels right" .  My favorite items to work on right now are my pendants.  I love the abstractness of wire wrapping and feel a connection with the stones as I work on them.  

Larissa's work has also been featured in an slide show in their 
beauty and style section!  Check it out here!

I hope everyone is having a great New Year!

I recently received these great little earrings from EmmasEarrings.  Aren't they sooo adorable?  They are silver-plated hardware with freshwater pearls and a great purple semi-precious stone!

Here's what they look like on.  Aren't they adorable?  Perfect for a little flash of color and they contrast beautifully with my hair!

 A little farther away so you can see the scale.  I love how simple and elegant, yet organic they are.  The elegance of the pearl contrasts yet compliments the organic nature of the stone so well, don't you agree?

Check out some other adorable items from Emma's shop:
