Handmade Gemstone, Crystal
and Pearl Jewelry at GlitzGlitter

The biggest problem I have when I write a review for a shop like GlitzGlitter is ... I really have a hard time choosing only four handmade jewelry items to feature! When I wrote this, there were 555 handcrafted jewelry items in this shop, and it keeps growing ... it truly is an amazing collection!

This artisan likes to use a lot of color in her jewelry. And I love the way she does it; bold, bright and very stylish designs that are simple, classic and fabulous!

You'll find lots of gemstones, art glass and crystal here. Many pieces also feature pearls. Browse through the Wire Wrapped Earrings for dangles with briolette gemstones and crystal; Sterling Silver Earrings featuring art glass beads; 14k Gold Filled Earrings made with beautiful lampwork glass beads, pearls and gemstone beads; and this artisan's pretty Copper and Brass Earrings, dressed up with freshwater pearls, art glass and gemstones.

This artisan offers handmade Gemstone Necklaces, Glass and Crystal Necklaces, Bracelets and pretty Wire Wrapped Rings; while you're browsing be sure to visit the Sale section!

This first pair of very fashionable chalcedony briolette earrings are wire wrapped with oxidized silver wire. These pretty dangle earrings feature aqua blue chalcedony briolettes; the color is just gorgeous, and is perfectly contrasted by the darkened silver wire.

These dangles hang from hand forged shepherd's hook ear wires.

The chalcedony briolettes are faceted for sparkle. Chalcedony is a semi translucent stone; not transparent, but not opaque either. These seem to have an inner glow ... they could be yours for just $27.00!

This pretty necklace was made with Czech pressed glass beads in a beautiful long oval shape. The beads were etched by this artisan to give them a frosted finish ... they remind me of sea glass!

Hand wrapped with antique finish brass wire, attached to antiqued brass cable chain and finished with an antique finish brass lobster clasp, this very pretty and colorful necklace is a fabulous accent!

This 18" Frosted Spring Green, Aqua and Grape Antiqued Brass Necklace would be a really nice gift ... even for yourself! $26.00 ...

Most people think red when they picture garnet. Actually garnet is a very colorful family with orange, brown, red and even a couple of green varieties. This glittering garnet briolette necklace is made with hessionite garnet, in shades ranging from a dark toffee to a pale honey color.

The briolettes in this necklace were each securely wrapped with 14k gold filled wire; then attached to 14k gold filled cable chain, and finished with a 14k gold filled lobster clasp. This lovely, sparkling necklace is 19" in length; you could be wearing it for $230.00!

Here's a necklace that'll add some bright color to your look this summer! The Lime Green Chalcedony Rough Faceted Sterling Silver Necklace has a more organic, natural look that shows off the beauty of these gemstones very nicely.

Chalcedony is a solid color stone in the agate family that comes in many colors; black onyx, carnelian and chrysoprase are all types of chalcedony. This is a nice lime green color, and it'll go well with most casual summer wear. The necklace is made with sterling silver chain; order this pretty green gemstone necklace today for $26.00!
