This is a lovely necklace and earrings set made by Bello Modo. The best part it uses some of my top favorite brands. Swarovski, Tierra Cast and Nunn Design…just to let you know. I would make these in an antiqued silver for me to personally wear. But the tanzanite and dark indigo go fabulously with the set like it is.

The materials needed and instructions for both pieces are included as well.

Enjoy and share with me what your favorites are to make and products to use.

New Year’s Eve is a starry night, so wearing a lovely Starry Night earring and necklace set will be the perfect thing to set your evening off. These pieces are fun and easy to make, and a great way to show off the new TierraCast crystal earring posts and links.

I like these a lot. Simple, yet classic and elegant. Can be dressed up or down. Love versatile jewelry.

One thing about working at Bello Modo is that you’ll see an item over and over again until you are obsessed with it. (If you’ve ever worked at a craft store, you know what I’m talking about.) For me, it was the Palace Green Opal crystals by Swarovski. There’s just something about them: they’re milky, moody, and subtle and I knew I had to make something.

The angle of these earrings reminds me of sweeping palace steps, hence the name. Two shades of copper all-metal seed beads set off the smoky emerald green crystal, and are echoed by the Nunn Design fine faceted ball chain and crimp ends. They are seriously luxurious and feel as good to wear as they look. Keep reading for instructions!

Now this is interesting. Very unique and ingenious. I would have never though of doing this. Way to go Bello Modo.

CicadaRing1

Sometimes necklace, bracelets, and earrings get all the glory. When I see a beautiful component, how to make it into a ring isn’t usually my first thought. But after my bug-loving friend pointed out how well these Vintaj cicadas fit along her finger, I’m going to try to keep my mind more open.

I promised I’d figure out how to make a cicada into a ring for her—and so, this simple, chunky ring was born. If you’d like, you could also add a patina instead of burnishing for a more colorful look.
