Handmade Jewelry by
Abacus Bead Creations

jewelry by Abacus Bead Creations! Today I'm writing about Peg of AbacusBeadCreations, one of my jewelry artisan friends from the JET Team over on Etsy. Peg makes amazing handcrafted bead jewelry ... very contemporary, bright and fashionable! Her handmade jewelry items include gorgeous bracelets, stylish necklaces, and fabulous earrings. You'll find a nice selection of beaded watches and there are great accessories to choose from, like unique beaded eyeglass holders and cool handcrafted lanyards for your ID tag or keys!

Here's a great necklace made by this jewelry designer! You can see the colors are interesting and well matched; and the floral motif of the focal pendant adds a nice touch.

The Jet Czech Glass Multi Strand Necklace with Blue Flower Pendant is a five strand beauty that will go very well with a wide range of styles from a casual tee shirt and jeans to a black cocktail dress. The beads are black Czech glass, Capri blue Swarovski crystals and seed beads.

This fashionable necklace could be yours ... for just $46.00!

This one is kinda traditional ... but I just LOVE the colors in it! The carnelian stones are really
nice size rectangles and pumpkin shapes, and the color range is beautiful, from a peach color to a hot orange.

The Carnelian and Multi-Colored Swarovski Crystal Necklace is a really versatile piece that will match anything you wear in the brown, red, orange or yellow family of colors. The crystal beads add lots of sparkle and interest. The length of this beautiful necklace is 18", and its finished with a gold plated toggle clasp. This pretty necklace is just $38.00!

This colorful Tiger Iron, Moukaite and Crystal Copper Chunky Bracelet is gorgeous! It features tiger iron and multicolored moukaite nuggets. Peg used Swarovski crystal copper bicones to add lots of sparkle!

These are really chunky stones so the bracelet measures 9" ... but will fit an average sized wrist. This lovely bracelet has been finished with a pretty gold plated patterned rectangular toggle clasp, and is priced at $32.00 ...

These pretty Black Lip Shell with Tanzanite Crystal and Pearl Earrings are a nice pair of dangles! You'll get sparkle from the Swarovski crystal, and the violet color picks up the iridescent sheen of the black lip shell nicely. The pearls are man made; they're also made by Swarovski, so they're a nice quality imitation pearl. The ear wires and the metal components in these earrings are sterling silver; so these are a really good quality pair of handmade earrings. The most amazing part ... is they cost just $16.00!

This artisan has a lot to see ... Here's a peek into her shop!

So visit AbacusBeadCreations! This is handcrafted jewelry you can wear ... and love!
