Beautiful Beaded Jewelry by GrandmaMarilyns!

Today I'm writing about my fellow Jet Team member and friend, Marilyn - jewelry maker and owner of GrandmaMarilyns, a great Etsy shop where this artisan offers her fabulous creations to jewelry lovers worldwide!

You'll find there are several types of handcrafted beaded jewelry available for purchase at GrandmaMarilyns ... this jewelry is made with a wide assortment of beads, so there is jewelry in several very reasonable price ranges.
The top shelf items are handwoven bead bracelets like the beautiful Stained Glass Cuff pictured at left. This is an original 2 Drop Peyote pattern designed by this jewelry artisan! This fabulous cuff bracelet was made with top quality glass Japanese Delica beads. It could be yours - for only $53.00!

Here's another beautifully woven bead bracelet. This one is the Rootbeer and Amber Diamonds and Triangles Cuff, and it is truly an amazing piece of art - a lot of labor and more than 2500 glass seed beads went into this piece. You could be wearing this one of a kind bracelet for $70.00!

The next bracelet I'm showcasing is the Pin Stripes and Flowers Bracelet. The base of this hand woven bracelet is a black and white pinstripe pattern, and the colorful flowers are hand beaded onto the pinstriped bracelet. This piece is also made with Japanese Delica beads, and it has a large size beaded button clasp. This is a fabulous hand beaded, one of a kind piece made for a smaller size wrist. It could be on its way to you for the bargain price of $48.00!

Some of Marilyn's bracelets are made with seed beads and Swarovski crystal. These bracelets have that extra sparkle, and they're great for a dressy occasion. This fabulous Caribbean Blue Woven Bracelet is a beautiful example of a bracelet made with this weaving technique. The blue colors are vibrant, and are accented with crystal Matsuno Japanese seed beads. It has a lobster clasp, and you could be wearing it for just $50.00!

There is so much more to see at GrandmaMarilyns! The handcrafted bracelets I showcased above are just part of the picture. You'll find Handmade Earrings like the pretty Gold Round Lace Earrings, made with Matsuno Metallic Light Gold seed beads. You might prefer the edgy Ruby and Black Wave Swarovski Earrings, with 4mm Ruby Swarovski crystals and Metallic Dark Black Gunmetal Japanese seed beads, or the glittering Copper Luster Earrings.

There are fabulous handcrafted necklaces - the Ruby and Black Wave Necklace with Gothic Pendant is amazing; the Green Cube Necklace is a stunning piece; and the Snowflake Obsidian Necklace is a one of a kind beauty!

You'll also see pretty handmade pendants and handcrafted rings. So stop by GrandmaMarilyn's today! You'll love her designs and the quality of this wonderful jewelry. If you want to follow her to see what's new, you can find her here:
