Beautiful Beaded Jewelry at GrandmaMarilyns!

It is ALWAYS a pleasure to review GrandmaMarilyn's shop! Why? Well ... Making things with your hands is never easy. It takes a lot of hard work and practice to become good at anything, and when people do ... it is a true accomplishment. That's why I appreciate this artisan's talent so much ... the handmade jewelry she creates is labor intensive and unless you know what you're doing ... it won't look right!

Grandma Marilyn's is arranged in categories to make shopping easy! There are lots of handcrafted bracelets to check out; you can browse through this artisan's handmade earrings category, or find a handcrafted necklace in her necklaces gallery. You'll also find several of this jewelry artist's handmade pendants and sparkling handcrafted rings to choose from!

I usually choose her amazing woven seed bead bracelets to review, so this time I'm featuring some of her other jewelry. There is a good range of styles here; these pieces represent that!

This is an adjustable bracelet with a LOT of sparkle - and style! It would be a fantastic bracelet to wear to a very dressy occasion like a wedding; or on a date when you want to look your best!

Made in a pretty, very feminine style with topaz color Swarovski crystals and topaz color Japanese seed beads. The chain portion serves as an extender, making the length adjustable. This topaz crystal bracelet will fit any wrist from 6 1/4" to 8 1/4".

Give this pretty bracelet a new home ... its yours for just $25.00!

These gorgeous Copper Luster Earrings certainly are sparkly! Made with Copper Luster Czech Fire Polished crystals and Miyuki silver lined gold seed beads, they have a luxurious, rich appearance that will beautifully accent your finest dress.

These Green Cube Earrings are really pretty! The cubes are top quality 4mm Miyuki glass beads; they're accented by gorgeous emerald /aqua color Japanese seed beads, hand woven around the cubes with a right angle weave by this artisan!

This sparkling green pair of earrings also has matching pieces available. The Green Cube Necklace and the coordinating Green Cube Bracelet were actually made first; the three make a fantastic set.

This last example for today is a bold and bright Wonderdome ring. This is a piece of handmade jewelry everyone will notice! The faceted metallic finish iris/green beads will reflect sparkling light every time your hand moves and this eye catching ring will grab their attention! The band is woven from fine Transparent Light Green Matsuno seedbeads. This ring is a size seven, but this artisan can adjust the size for you! Marilyn can also make this ring in other colors.
