May Jewelry Giveaway Blue Mexican Opal Bracelet and Earrings with Crystal

The jewelry giveaway for May is a 7.5 inch bracelet made up of Blue Mexican Opal coin beads and a focal Swarovski Crystal. Dangle earrings feature a coin bead flanked by crystal bicone beads and 3mm silver plated accent beads. The ear wires are silver plated copper. Many people commented in an earlier giveaway that blue was a favorite color, and these are a lovely shade. They are actually a lighter and softer blue than my scanner could capture.

This jewelry giveaway is available to only United States and Canadian residents, 18 and over, void where prohibited. It will begin May 1 at 6:00 p.m. and will end on May 31 at 11:00 p.m. EST. You can enter via the form below, or visit if the form does not display for some reason (use the red ribbon giveaway tab at the top of the page).

Best wishes and thanks for participating!

Jewelry and Fashion Roundup for 05/16/2014

The weather today has been cold, rainy and very windy. I enjoyed gathering these summer sets to go with the jewelry today as I think of warmer days to come. Today's round up begins with earrings of Howlite oval beads with AAA Red Coral beads in all .925 sterling silver. These have generous rounded hooks. I paired them with this fashion set that features green shorts and belt and a lovely red top with interesting neck detail.

The earrings are being sold in auction format, starting at a low $8.99 (free shipping and gift bag). Shop them here:

Second, a necklace and long dangle earrings of Black Stripe Agate is shown with a casual jean shorts set. The pendant will fall nicely on this neckline and pick up the black and brown tones in the set. The top has a nice tier design.

This set is also being sold in auction format, $7.99 to start with free shipping and gift bag. Shop it here

Third, Green Aventurine gemstone chip dangle earrings are a real bargain at $4.49 with free shipping and gift bag. Other gemstones, such as yellow turquoise, rose quartz, and watermelon quartz, are available. Gemstone chip earrings are a wonderful way to add a splash of color to complement your outfits.

Last, I found these .925 sterling silver twist ball drop earrings intriguing. They are priced at only $19.99 and would go with many different outfits. Here, I'm showing them with a long maxi skirt and tee, along with silver sandals. These earrings are part of the Amazon Curated Collection. Shop them by clicking HERE.

That's it for today. Have a fabulous weekend!

Jewelry and Fashion Round Up 05/14/2014

Today's round up begins with a bracelet of Red "Ruby" Jade, Red Bicones, Swarovski Crystal in Silver Plate. I am showing it with a summer ready red skirt and red sandals. A jean jacket provides warmth for a chilly evening, or air conditioning in a movie theater perhaps.

The bracelet is $10.99, with free shipping and gift bag. Shop it here:

Second is Black Onyx and Clear and Black Swarovski Crystal Bracelet and Earrings in Sterling Silver Plate, shown with a designer black and white fashion set. I particularly like the various patterns that attract the eye and command attention. I'm changing the gold to silver in the accessories.

This onyx bracelet and earring set is priced at $13.99 with free shipping and gift bag. Shop it here:

Third, is a Red Aventurine Gemstone Beads and Chips Long Earrings and Stretch Bracelet Set. This is actually orange (not red) in color. I love this long orange maxi skirt and thought the earrings and bracelet would complement it nicely. A simple white tee is cool and bright. Bare sandals and a hat to shield against the sun complete the look.

This set is priced at 12.99 with free shipping and gift bag. Shop it here:

Last, the birthstone for May is Emerald and I thought these created Emerald and created White Sapphire earrings in sterling silver were elegant. They are part of the Amazon Curated Collection. While you might picture a gown with this earrings, I instead show a lovely green dress that floats around the body. These earrings would be a perfect match and are not too dressy for the dress :-)

The earrings are $60 (regular price is 159) with free shipping. Shop them here Created Emerald Earrings

That's all for today. I hope you enjoyed the round up.
