Gypsy Aventurine Coin Bracelet

A while back, I found some aventurine coin beads. I thought I could make something pretty from them and decided to get them. I spent months looking at them, wondering what I could make. Eventually, I decided to make a bracelet. I wanted to make a stretchy bracelet because I have had so many people tell me that like my bracelets but they can’t get the clasps to open and shut easily. After trying to come up with a way to make a pretty elastic bracelet, I decided to surround the coins with bronze beads. In the end, I wound up with this pretty Bohemian bracelet.

Jade Victorian Rings

When I made my first Victorian jade ring, I had several people ask me if I had it any other colors. I always had to say no and asked what colors they would like to see them in. I had a few people asked if I had it in green, others just wanted to see it in different colors. So I went to my supplier and bought some more cabochons. I haven’t used all of the colors I bought to use for these rings, but I have used all of the jade stones I bought. Unfortunately, my supplier has stopped carrying these in jade and started carrying them in quartz. The colors are identical to the jade he used to carry, which means I will be able to continue to make these rings, but these will be the only jade rings of these colors I will be carrying in my store. After the original jade rings are sold out, they will be quartz rings. They will look the same, but if you want it in jade, you will have to purchase it now.

Victorian Rings

 

The jade rings are currently available in four colors: forrest green, burgundy, sapphire, and cherry red. You can find them all in our “Rings” section of the shop.

Bohemian Turquoise Flowers Hoop Charm Set

I have been using a lot of turquoise in my jewelry lately. The reason for this is that the majority of the beads in the grab bags I bought were turquoise. There were some pretty interesting looking pieces, like the copper flowers I used in this particular set of hoop charms. Since these hoop charms were made from materials purchased in a grab bag bead lot, they are one of a kind. They are a set and the charms will ship with the gold tone hoops. These earrings are available in the Etsy shop.

Turquoise Floral Gypsy Necklace

M computer is still not working, which means I’m still using my tablet to run my shop. I managed to add this lovely Boho necklace onto my Etsy shop. This is one of the necklaces that I was working on making from grab bag beads. It is  21 1/2 inches long. For those who like to wear their necklaces a little bit longer, it does come with a 3 1/2-inch long extension.

Computer Woes

Many of our readers and people who have found us online have seen this every time they tried to visit our blog or load a page: Screen Shot 2014-07-10 at 8.10.16 PM

And for all of you who have seen this, I apologize. Around the time the domain expired, I was visiting my grandparents house and unable to go online. A couple of days before I went home, my computer malfunctioned and I haven’t been on WordPress.com since. I have used the WordPress app on my tablet, but it doesn’t show or tell me if something like this is going on. The only reason I found out was because I visited my domain wileysgirljewelry.com and I received the WordPress error message. For some reason, WordPress decided that since my inactive domain expired they had to freeze all of my domains, including the primary wileysgirljewelry.com domain. However, the problem has been fixed and the blog is back to running smoothly.

Fashion Trends 2014: Pastel Jewerly

One of the spring and summer trends for 2014 is pastel jewelry. Some of the more prominent pastel colors for this particular trend are mint, light purple, and peach. Traditional pastels, like light blue and light pink, will be returning as well. This year, the focus of pastel clothes and jewelry seems more in favor of peach and mint over traditional French pink and pale yellow. What pastel colors will you be wearing this year?

Grab Bag Gems

I recently purchased several grab bags of beads. Some of them are plastic, but the majority of the ones I bought had semi precious gemstones. I love making jewelry with semi precious gemstones. These lots had some unusual cut gems and really pretty colors. Since the gems were from a grab bag, I didn’t get as many in a particular color or cut as I had wanted. That being said, I did manage to make several pairs of earrings. I am currently working on making necklaces and bracelets from them too.

While I’m working on the necklaces and bracelets, I thought I would share a few photos of these grab bag gems. And remember, I have a limited supply of each color. The color selection is so limited that I cannot make more than one pair of earrings in that particular color. Because I bought the gems used in these earrings in grab bag lots, I cannot make duplicates even if I purchased the same lot again. They are being sold on a first come, first serve basis.

I am Wiley’s Girl

I  have always been Wiley’s girl. I grew up in a small town and was homeschooled by my grandparents while my parents worked 9 to 5 jobs. I learned quite a bit about the importance of a good work ethic as well as the importance of learning a trade. My grandparents encouraged me to learn a trade as a hobby. My grandmother’s hobby was quilting and mine was designing clothes and making jewelry.

When my grandfather’s best friend died in 2007, I went with him to the funeral. While we were at the funeral, some of his old mining buddies came over to say hello. After chatting for a bit, one of them look an me and said “Wiley, is that your girl? I haven’t seen her since she was a little kid!” My grandfather laughed as he explained to his friends I was his eldest granddaughter. I had several other people ask me if I was Wiley’s girl. Each time the question was asked, my grandfather beamed with pride. After that funeral, I was known as “Wiley’s girl.”

In the latter part of 2013, I decided to rename my jewelry business Wiley’s Girl in honor of my grandfather. The man taught me a lot growing up and I wanted to be able to show him how thankful I am for all that he did for me.
