imperfection sale!

I ordered some ear threads and one of them was a hair longer than the other! Anyhow, I wanted to offer these up on sale incase it doesn't bother you guys. You can't tell when you're wearing it on either side of your head! But knowing it, I can't offer it at full price if it is not perfect!

I just wanted to throw this out there before it gets crazy tonight. Happy Halloween everybody!

Purple Teardrops on Ear Threads - $16 SALE, orig $20
The swarovski crystals are perfect and purple though! If you notice, the threads have a U shape to keep them in place!! They are the most expensive ear wires I've ever offered!
13mm. Sterling Silver.

Make a wish, Origami Fever!

Introducing the Crane Necklace. I love origami. I have ever since I was little. Something about folding perfect creases. When I got this crane bead I just couldn't wait to make it into a necklace! This is a special bead imported from Asia. The gold is tarnish resistant gold plated, and the silver is tarnish resistant rhodium plated. That applies to the chain as well. It's safe for people with sensitive skin.

Crane Necklace in Gold with Pacific Opal AB - reg. $20 [customize it here]
The origami inspired crane pendant is plated in a gold matte finish. It is accented with a Swarovski crystal or pearl of your choice. The necklace chain can be 16"-18" with an optional 3" extender. Lobster clasp with JJ tag included. You can't see it now, but there may be a small bead added to the bottom for extra security!

Shown here with a pretty white pearl. Some will come with a tag. I hand-stamped gold and rhodium plated oval beads to match.
Even though it is plated metal, I don't feel like it takes a back seat to sterling at all. Truthfully I prefer rhodium to sterling silver. I don't like how sterling tarnishes, and it can't be on display all of the time. I have to keep it zipped up in baggies. I really like the rhodium. The color is similar to white gold's silver color.

This is my baby sister modeling the 16" Crane Necklace in gold. She looks a lot older in the photo with the makeup like it is. How old does she look? She's only 17!

Whoa, look at all the color options! I only have 4 gold cranes and 4 silver cranes in stock right now. These are the only colors I have available. I only have one bead of most colors. Click image for a closer look.

Oh my gosh, doing this color chart was so much work! But I know it helps you visualize. :) These would make cute earrings too, but I'm only doing necklaces right now. Perhaps on the next round if there is interest.

Thanks for looking! Don't forget to enter Tammi's Contest for free jewelry.

Tag, you're it! Simple Sale

Introducing tags! Say hello to tags. Hi tags! Any necklace made by me will include a cute little hand-stamped tag. It's only available on Sterling Silver right now. I decided to go with JJ for Julu Jewelry, not juju. It was either JJ, JL or JLJ. Sometimes I don't stamp the J's aligned perfectly.. sorry for that. It's not easy. I like it though because I get to use a hammer! If I practice maybe I can fit Julu on there...

Just in case you didn't think I made these...

The price will go up $1-2 on the 14K due to the rising cost of fine metals once these are sold out.

The pink of the microfiber looks more like this photo shot in natural light. This necklace is meant to hang low and can be layered with others. The name of this necklace is weak, I know. Help me with a new name! I will be appreciative!
