That gleam in your eyes is so familiar

I hoping these can replace the Filigree Hearts LE Earrings that I no longer offer. They were limited, so three of you lovely ladies are very lucky. I'm jealous I didn't keep a pair for myself.

Aurora's Kiss Earrings - $17
Antique Silver heart-shaped beads with a scroll design attached to gleaming Swarovski beads in fuchsia on sterling ear wires. Only one.

Originally, I wanted to make this in gold and fuchsia, but I think most people like silver jewelry. In the future I may use gold hearts.


The curly scroll design in the heart can be seen in the curtains... wow, I did not plan this! This is my 2nd favorite Disney princess movie! What's your favorite Disney movie?


Aurora's Kiss Necklace - $18
This swarovski bead is almost in the shape of Princess Aurora's Lips. I almost named this Aurora's Lips, but I thought that was kinda weird. Anyhow... Fuchsia is a gorgeous pop of color on your neck. Sterling Silver chain. Still on the wave of last post's star and donut necklaces! Only one.

Save when you order together. E-mail me for details.

Now a funny pic...


OMG, this is from 7th grade! 10+ years ago! I was going through a really bad Ugly Betty phase. Thick fringe, big glasses, braces, and in need of a good bra! hahaha!

Food for Hungry Lumas

Hello hungry Lumas! I've got some tasty star bits for you!

I love Mario Galaxy! I'm so excited for Christmas to come because my brother got me the New Super Mario Bros. eeek! I can't wait to rip it open! Here are two gamer inspired necklaces.

Star Bit Necklace in Light Sapphire- Intro price of $15
A large (12mm) swarovski crystal star in light sapphire strung on a sterling silver chain. (16") Only one.




Star Bit Necklace in Crystal AB- Intro price of $15
A large (12mm) swarovski crystal star in crystal ab strung on a sterling silver chain. (16") Only one.

I really wanted to make some affordable sterling necklaces for those of you tight on cash who still want a little Julu. :)

These are great for layering with other necklaces or with other star bit necklaces in a different length. Let me know if you want something like that!

While I was taking these pictures I was imagining NEW necklaces, hehe. How about THREE stars on one strand? Three big stars! Or 2 small stars and 1 big star in the middle? I will be making a couple of these for next year. Any color requests? Leave in the comments below!


I think Star Bits are based off of Kompeitō, a Japanese candy. I haven't tried these, but I've seen them at the market. FYI, Star Bits are the things you collect in the Mario Galaxy game.

Remember These? These donuts inspired my star necklaces.

Honey Glazed Donut - $17 (Sold Out)
Looks simple, but this large Golden Shadow oval crystal looks very beautiful on your neck. 16" or 18" 14K Gold-Filled chain. 12mm swarovski crystal.


Donut with Sprinkles - $17 (1 left!)
Large Crystal AB Oval Crystal on a 16" or 18" Sterling Silver chain. 12mm swarovski crystal.


Pink Frosting Donut Necklace - $17 (1 left!)
Large Pink Oval Crystal on a 16" or 18" Sterling Silver chain. 12mm swarovski crystal.

I wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas!!

Custom Piece and Christmas Bonus

Hi gals! I want to share you with a custom necklace I just completed! This is for another Stephanie at Beauty is Not Caused. Check out her blog too; she's got videos! I really love doing custom jewelry work. Especially when it's guys trying to pick something for their girlfriends. I think it's so sweet and romantic!


Belle's Dream Necklace - $40
I had no idea how gorgeous these colors look together! I am planning to do more pieces with this color scheme. A medium Deep Sea Blue heart with a 22k gold-vermeil leaf bail snuggled next to a medium Light Topaz heart with its own 22k gold-vermeil bail hang on a 14k gold-filled chain. If you want one like this, e-mail me! It's not listed in my storefront.

See the yellow? Like Belle's Dress from Beauty and the Beast! aww!


Jewelry Lesson
What is vermeil? Vermeil is gold plated over sterling silver! Gold-filled has gold bonded and will not rub off. It's safe for people with sensitive skin, and it should last as long as solid 14k gold jewelry.

Now for a little blast from the past. I took new photos of these earrings from my first line. Order either of these two and get a Christmas bonus!

Princess in Waiting - $17, Sale $15
Light Amythyst AB, Tanzanite, and Golden Shadow round crystal beads separated by crystal rhinestone rondelles. Hanging on sterling silver lever back earrings.


Blue Capri Rounds - $17, Sale $15
Beautifully vibrant Capri Blue round crystal beads linked with cordinating colors by sterling silver balls. Capri Blue, Light Sapphire, Indian Sapphire

What is the Christmas bonus? A few full-sized and sample makeup products in a pouch! ;) Order by Christmas! What a hot deal?! Free shipping and makeup extras? Yes to that!


Incase you were wondering, this is the most popular combination of crane and bead! Silver with a Rosaline Pearl! So pretty. I have only ONE left! I won't have anymore until later next year. Your choice of bead of course!

How is your holiday going? Got the shopping done? I've been baking lots of cookies lately. 3 batches so far this season. That's a record!

A custom pair of earrings I made for my Aunt's niece. The hearts do a little "cascade" down your ear from cute puffy sterling silver heart ear wires. Moonlight, Crystal AB, and Rose Swarovski Crystals. Limited, only one left!


Little Crown Studs - $12
I got my hands on these cute little cubic zirconia crown studs! So cute, size reference below! They're part of my Korean fashion imports. I tried making my own crown studs before, but these are much better!


They come in a special clam shell case shaped like a crystal. :)


New colors for my Crane Necklace! The newest 4 colors are on the last row. Alabaster Rose, Alabaster Mint, Sapphire AB. Purple Velvet isn't new, just now round. You may notice that I have taken some colors out as well. The Alabasters have a nice soft pretty look. They're not bling, they're opaque.


I only have a few of these cranes left, and 1-2 of each bead color.


Plus! See the crane necklace in gold and pacific opal ab on the sweet and gorgeous Miss Erica! Hair tutorials are really big right now, check hers out please!! :)

Stay tuned for a new Tree Necklace next time! Stay Warm!

Yum. Now munch on this!

Love the little pop of crystal copper. 14k gold-filled ear wires. 16k gold-plated headpins. Only one pair!


I made two pairs, one for myself, and one for you! See how it hangs? My sister is the model. I think you could even consider these Holiday earrings. Sorry for the lousy photo, they look so much better in person!

These earrings reminded me of Creme Brulee. I thought I'd share a pic with you, who doesn't like looking at photos of food! Dita was kind enough to let me use her photo. She mentioned her dessert was slightly burnt, which resembles my earrings more. That's the way I like it! The closest to Creme Brulee that I've made is flan, haha!


Photo courtesy of Dita from http://last-bite.blogspot.com/ She has beautiful photography of food, be sure to check her out! Are you drooling yet?

Also some gorgeous caramel colored swarovski crystal (crystal copper) dangling on figure-eight 14k gold-filled chain. Featuring large circle 14k gold-filled ear wires. Regular ear wires available upon request. Swarovski tear drop shaped bead is 16mm.

Sailor Chibi loves Pegasus

Sailor Chibi Moon, her stories were cute, annoying, and sad. For those of you who don't know, she is the daughter of Sailor Moon sent from the future. I don't actually remember why though... Can anyone tell me? Anyhow, Rhaina is the one who encouraged me to make this. Take a look!

She is the Scout of Friendship and Dreams. The necklace features a Crystal AB moon pendant (20mm) with a light cream pearl and small rose heart. Sterling Silver bails and chain. 16" or 18" available. Swarovski crystals.

Even if you don't like/know anything about Sailor Moon, I hope you can still enjoy this necklace! If you do like Sailor Chibi, I could do a more detailed one... let the juices flow!

I'm not sure what this is from, but it's a nice emo pic of her. haha. I like her story with the Pegasus... speaking of Pegasus...

Pegasus and Pearl Necklace - [shop here]
A crystal clear Swarovski Pegasus pendant paired with a medium sized pearl of your choice. Also available without pearl charm. Sterling Silver drop bail and chain. 16" or 18" available.

I totally did not plan to post these two necklaces together, but boy they do go together! I'm thinking right now how cute a rosaline pearl would look with the Pegasus necklace. oooh, lmk if you want that instead!

Filigree Hearts LE Earrings - $15
A filigree platinum plated heart with a wire wrapped light cream swarovski pearl dangling below. Sterling silver ear wires and wrapping. Rhodium plated ear wires available upon request. I love how it has a little romanitc/vintage feel to it. Very limited!


Winter Romance Bracelet - $16*
Little Dark grey heart pearls and light azore swarovski crystal rounds linked rosary style. Sterling silver heart toggle clasp. 6.5 inches, but can be adjusted to fit you. Very cute and dainty. The light azore blue is a very pretty snow princess color.


I thought it was about time I posted this bracelet (any bracelet) up.
*cannot be combined with a percent off discount


I've loved paper and wrapping ever since I was younger. One of my first projects as a teen was recovering jewelry boxes with pretty paper. I've done it again, now with thicker scrap-booking quality paper. Each custom covered box is one-of-a-kind. The edges are clean and perfect, you'd never know I did this. This particular pattern has raised glitter details. Great for birthdays or anniversaries. I've finished it off with a wide Grey grosgrain ribbon. If you want this or something like this, let me know!
