Awesome gifts for any occasion!

 I love this fantastic personalized bracelet!
The pretty Hand Engraved Monogrammed Cuff Bracelet by
JBowerEngraving on Etsy has a 1" silver disc attached
that was hand engraved by this talented artisan.

Her work is not done with the help of a machine;
it is engraved the old fashioned way, by actually
carving the monogram out with a very sharp tool called a graver.
This work takes patience and a very steady hand!

Her shop is full of beautiful personalized jewelry
that is perfect for wedding party gifts, holidays, retirements, anniversary gifts
and any occasion that calls for something special!

Guys wear jewelry too! We like simple styles that tend to be minimalist in nature,
straightforward and easy to wear styles - attractive,
kinda macho designs that have a seriously masculine feel.

This is why we like things like curb chains. This ring is perfect for all those reasons, and more!
I made this ring to satisfy a man's desire to look good while keeping it simple.

This ring is totally collapsible ...
the links are not soldered together. I simply split one link,
connected it to the other end and then soldered it closed.

So the ring moves with the finger, and is
very comfortable to wear! You can find this curb chain ring in our
Jewelry24Seven Etsy shop
with a lot more of our handmade jewelry!

Terry made these fabulous hoop earrings, dressing them up with
black onyx washer style beads and sterling silver
wire that she hand coiled, separating the
onyx beads into sections. These are quite fashionable and lightweight,
so they're very comfortable to wear. These amazing
hoop earrings can be found on the home page of our web shop!

Fabulous artisan made fashions!

 I love the Autumn colors in this fantastic Classy Chocolate and Copper Woven Bracelet! Gorgeous earth tones like this make it a wonderful Fall wardrobe accessory. Handmade by JET member Laurie of everydayapromise, this could be your favorite bracelet through the Thanksgiving holiday. A pretty and very affordable gift for a September birthday!

This ring is my latest design in the new Wedding and Engagement section in our Etsy shop. This pretty ring is 4mm wide, and it features a 1/4 carat sparkling natural white sapphire. The double half round band adds a very fashionable, modern but minimalist feel to this pretty silver and sapphire engagement ring. The gemstone is well protected in the .999 fine silver bezel setting and the band is still narrow enough to be worn with a matching wedding band as a very affordable bridal set. Sapphire is a precious stone second only to diamond in hardness; the sparkle in this fabulous gemstone is amazing!

If you like vintage style jewelry, you'll LOVE this necklace! I made this with
a Gothic style and feel, very much like jewelry was made 100 years ago. The long black onyx cabochon is framed in a scalloped bezel that is surrounded with a very pretty twisted wire  accent, and has a fabulous drop made with two faceted black onyx beads. The chain is a classic long and short style. This pretty silver and black onyx necklace is made to fall just below the collarbone at 16 1/4" long, with the drop extending about 1 1/2" below the cabochon. Pieces like this are always fashionable and this wonderful necklace is heirloom quality - made to last for generations. You'll find this beautiful necklace on our Jewelry24Seven website!

6 Teardrop Swarovski Crystals, wrapped in bright non-tarnish brass cascade from the bottom. This Creates a tassle effect.

The mixed metals make this truly a unique and diverse piece that can be worn with anything and adds a beautiful splash of color. The Swarovski colors are Amethyst, Topaz and Aquamarine. This pendant (including the crystals) measures 2 inches from the ring bail. It has a spring ring clasp.

If you want a pretty wedding band on a budget, look no further - here's one that has style, can be made in any size and will definitely fit within your budget!

This ring features an attractive scroll design. The ring is 5mm wide, a nice width that can be worn by men as well as women. The classic scroll design is beautiful and will always be fashionable. This ring can also be oxidized on request. You can find this fabulous silver band in our Etsy shop!

Here in the USA kids are going back to schools and colleges, and if you or your daughter have long hair, a barrette may be a good idea to keep it looking great. You can find a nice variety of silver barrettes at our website!

Some great jewelry to consider for your Fall wardrobe ...

I love this beautiful gemstone ring by my friend and fellow JET member Lisa of EmeraldPixie on Etsy! The blue and green combination of the two gems - peridot and aquamarine - compliment each other so well! The square and round stone shapes make this a very interesting piece visually and the 14k gold accent adds a nice touch. You can find the Echoes Peridot and Aquamarine Ring in Silver with 14kt Accent in Lisa's Etsy shop along with many other fantastic gemstone jewelry pieces.

I've been busy making new jewelry! One of my latest rings is this pretty blue sapphire and silver ring. This one is entirely handmade; the bezel setting is made with .999 fine silver and I made the split shank from sterling silver wire. The sapphire is a natural stone, not a lab created synthetic. I buy my gems from an American gem supplier that deals in conflict free stones, and my silver supplies come from a supplier that provides recycled precious metal, so you can be confident our jewelry is eco - friendly! You'll find this ring in our Jewelry24Seven shop on Etsy!

I'm gearing up for fall on our Jewelry24Seven website as well, with many new items added in the last couple of months. This beautiful and substantial handcrafted silver chainmaille rope bracelet is just one of those pieces. Made with nice thick silver wire links, you'll want to wear this fabulous bracelet every day! This bracelet is a generous 6.5mm wide and will fit a hefty wrist, so it is a great gift for a man ... or a woman who likes impressive jewelry.

And as I mentioned above, this bracelet is made with silver wire that comes from recycled metal - so you can feel good about supporting the environment while wearing it!

Tourmaline Ladder Bracelet by JET member cserpent Designs

 This Tourmaline ladder sterling silver bracelet is fabulous! I love the range of tourmaline colors in this piece ... this beautiful gemstone is found in more colors than almost any other gem, and this bracelet shows that off so well.

The style is a classic ladder; but this seems to put a new twist on an age old design. The sterling silver bar and link chain is the perfect way to put this together. The bracelet was made by my JET teammate Susan of cserpent Designs on Etsy.

I love it!
