Be-dazzled!


























The Holidays, Chanukah and Christmas are creeping into everybody's mind...especially those of us who sell our arts and handmade crafts. I have 2 new offerings which will dazzle and garner attention!!

Check out these gorgeous, 'Aqua CZ Dangle', 5, 6mm aquamarine cubic zirconia briolettes, separated by gold filled vermeil nuggets on a 24 gauge wire. Finishing up the circle on either side are 2, 4mm pale, VERY pale aquamarine bi-cone Swarovski crystals.

For a second offering, 'Go Green' CZ' I have delicately hung from a 7mm connective hoop, 5 gorgeous, 6mm olivine green cubic zirconia briolettes are separated by gold filled vermeil nuggets on a 24 gauge wire. Finishing up this circle on either side are 4, 3mm olivine green bi-cone Swarovski crystals...they are tiny, tiny...and this circle is now complete.

These are, 1" wide, or the exact size of an American quarter. With the 14k gold filled hook, they are 1 1/2" in length. Very light weight, but with a stunning sparkle. Sure to dress up any outfit. There is a definite left and a right, so that these earrings face forward. Check them out in my Etsy and ArtFire shops!

BE-DAZZLED!!!

Dazzling indeed and I'll bet these will sparkle like crazy in good light with all those facets...just lovely!!

Quilt Works said...

nice job, they look beautiful!

Have you had much luck on on ArtFire? I have been there for almost year and no sale or inquiries what so ever! I stopped updating my listings there...

Amy Lilley Designs said...

YES, Karen...the sparkle is fabulous...makes them look bigger and more 'chandelier', than dangle...glad that you like!!

Thank you QuiltWorks....no, I have not sold one thing on ArtFire...lots of looks...and I have everything marked as 'make me an offer'...ho hum...

Theresa said...

Love those earrings though not sure which is my favorite. That is such a beautiful green.

Glad I only have a free account on Artfire...doesn't really seem to be worth it.

Theresa, thank you...the green is my favorite color (mixed w/ the gold nuggets...how can you loose??) and I love those earrings, but the aqua is so 'dressy' and light...so, I'm not sure which is my fav as well...I have another pair in garnet..not posted yet...yes, ArtFire has been good in some ways, but not one sale, even w/ the 'make me an offer' feature...so, like I said to QuiltWorks, ho hummmmmm...

stunning Amy!!!
my faves are the green.... but the aqua come in a very close second ;)

I'm a sucker for green jewellery and I'm bedazzled :)

They are wonderful Amy just as are my gifts I ordered!!

I love the wrapping, simple and elegant! I am just thrilled. Thank you so very much!!

My apologies in taking so long but I have been quite busy with my Photoshop course. I am loving much.

I am also organizing all of my photos as we go along. My photos are a chaotic mess, simply downloaded and sorted by date.

Now, slowly but surely, they are all being named and categorized by topic. It's a job, but, one that needed to be done!!

I hope you have a grand week. I honestly don't know how long I will be away from blogging. But, you'll be one of the first to know when I return.

Thanks again for the wonderful cards!!

hhh, very pretty! Also loving the composition of the pictures.

Kim, the olivine green (and shades thereof) is my favorite color as well...I can easily see them on you w/ you coloring...but yes, the aqua pair are very pretty...I do have fun trying them on..:))I have yet to post the pair I have in ruby red!!!

Jackie, I'm sooooo glad that you are happy w/ your purchase...and I hope that the girls enjoy them for Christmas...I had fun picking out your extras...:))...my photos need more arranging as well...it's like anything else, you just have to suit down and do it (I'm talking to myself here..)...I'm so happy for you about your photoshop course..I MUST TAKE ONE @ RISD!!!...looking forward..:))

Hiya Z...the earrings are so tricky to photograph because, I want to get the sparkle, so I need the sun, (especially w/ the cubic zirconia) but I don't need the shadows...so many, many shots later...ta daaaa...:)))

Azure Islands Designs said...

These definitly "dazzle" Amy...beautiful earrings...I was never a fan of green until I began making jewelry and the more I see/work with green the more it grows on me!

Both pairs are gorgeous but I do have to say the green seem to have an extra bit of sparkle!!!!!
Cheer...

The olivine green is my favorite color Heather...it's funny how differently we see things once we get our hands on materials, look @ the work and color combos of others, then come up w/ something which, according to our sensibilities, works for us...the aqua pair have just as much 'dazzle' (the art of picture taking our jewelry...you know...)...and interestingly, both pair seem more chandelier than 'dangle' when on the ear...I have a couple more to post next week...:))
