Handmade Jewelry Designed with Gemstones and Crystals

I am so completely in love with these earrings!

Those plum drops and the beautiful colors of the swirl beads. The whole combination just draws my eye and makes me salivate.

Absolutely gorgeous.

Today's shop has a lot of gorgeous pieces like these, too! HeadpinWear on Etsy is filled with a terrific collection of beautiful jewelry from earrings to necklaces, bracelets and more.

The shop is organized to find what you want, too! Not just with sections for each type of jewelry they offer but also an "under $20.00" section for those browsing on a budget.

Czech glass shimmers among gemstones and crystals in this wonderful shop with a subtle, earthy feel combined with a touch of elegance.

If you're looking for a piece of jewelry to complement your features, fashion and your unique style then this isn't a shop you'll want to miss!

Fabric Jewelry - Art to Wear

Filled with an eclectic mix of fabric jewelry, modern art to wear and unique accessories, today's feature is Tamdoll's Silver Mountain Originals on Etsy!

This shop has a variety of pretty items from tote bags to jewelry and a handful of sewing patterns. But I'm particularly drawn to the embroidered and felt brooches offered here and there's a series of them in autumn leaf colors that I adore.

Fabric brooches and pins make a great gift for teachers of young children and child-care workers, especially, since they are soft and therefore less likely to hurt when bumped or scraped against. The versatility of these brooches is terrific and those offered in Tamdoll's shop are beautifully made and completely adorable.
