Chunky Rose Gold Glass Bead Memory Wire Bracelet

Jewelry

Rose gold has been popular for a while now, but I think this is only the second rose gold piece I’ve made!

These glass beads have a pretty, shiny, metallic rose gold finish. They’re a little bigger and heavier, making this almost like a cuff bracelet, but with the security of a memory wire bracelet. You won’t have to worry about this one falling off! This bracelet can definitely be worn for casual or formal situations, and while it is bigger and chunkier, it is simple and plain enough to be worn with other stacking bracelets.

Because this bracelet is memory wire and doesn’t have a size, it makes a perfect gift for anyone who loves easy, versatile jewelry. You can find more information about this bracelet in my Etsy shop!

Bright Fall Colors Czech Glass Memory Wire Bracelet

Jewelry

How fun is this bracelet?! These beads were called the “Summer” pack, but I think they look more like fall.

I love the way these rectangular-ish beads lie against the wrist in a pretty, low profile. Bright colors combine with a few subtle flashes of metallic finish to give this bracelet a unique look. With so many colors, you can wear this bracelet with anything, although I think the colorful palette makes it lean a bit more casual.

I’ve got this piece listed in my Etsy shop if you’d like to take a closer look! Bonus? It’s only FIVE BUCKS!

Seriously…I think you need this bracelet.

Black Star Charm Bracelet

Jewelry

I really love these charm chain bracelets, and this one is a little different. I usually make these in silver or gold, but I tried something new with this black star bracelet.

I’m not sure it’s quite my style, but is definitely fun to wear when I want an edgier look, and is perfect to wear with a ton of other bracelets. I think this will be a nice complement to some of my Halloween jewelry.

Do you have an edgier piece you keep in your collection, just for those special looks?

Amber Colored Glass Bead Memory Wire Bracelet

Jewelry

This is a newer piece I have listed in my Etsy shop, and I think it is the perfect summer-to-fall piece.

Yellow, orange, brown and gold tones come together to create an overall amber color. This color arrangement reminds me of changing fall leaves. I know that’s been nearly a constant theme with me lately, but I am so ready for fall!

These beads are supported by gold plated memory wire. They are a bit chunkier than some of my other pieces, giving almost a cuff bracelet effect. The bracelet is big enough to be a statement piece, but not overwhelming. I love these glass beads because they look appropriate for both casual and more formal outfits.

Orange Earrings for Fall

Jewelry

These simple but sparkly earrings are a perfect fall accessory! While they’re an obvious choice for Halloween wear in such a vibrant orange color, I think they would look really great for Thanksgiving, too. They are also the perfect color to support my alma mater, and now that it’s college football season I’ll be wearing my pair every Saturday!

These earrings have been my best seller since revamping my Etsy shop and product line. I think it’s because they’re sort of the Goldilocks of earrings – just enough sparkle, just enough dangle, nothing too crazy or over the top.

These leverback ear wires are my favorite type, too. No more losing earrings (trust me, that’s a thing – at least for me – and these ear wires brought that to an abrupt halt).

What do you think of these fun fall earrings?

Halloween Memory Wire Bracelet

Jewelry

Whoooops. While getting ready for my first craft show (yay!), I missed a few days of posting, so I’ll be making up those posts over the next few days.

I am in FULL ON fall mode now. That means I’m also really into Halloween jewelry right now. I love using not just orange and black, but also lime green and purple for Halloween colors, and this bracelets uses all of those colors.

The tiny skull charm with rhinestone eyes is a cute finishing touch on this piece.

I usually lean more towards jewelry pieces that are multi-use – not very trendy or seasonal – but this bracelet screams Halloween and I can’t wait to wear it! You can order your own Halloween memory bracelet from my Etsy shop for only $9!

Happy Labor Day!

Jewelry

Happy Labor Day to those in the US! Labor Day is always a bittersweet holiday for me. I’m always sad to see the summer go, but with that comes excitement for fall. I absolutely love fall and winter, so I have a lot to look forward to as the seasons change.

I always associate Labor Day as a kind of patriotic day. I think that’s because growing up, I was in a ton of parades, and there were always so many flags in the parades! When I was little my dad would sometimes be in the parade and I would walk with him, and when I was older I was in the marching band. I always pause to think about my band director who would always take a moment before the parade to tell us a little bit about why we were celebrating the holiday. He was a really special teacher and mentor.

So, for my Livergood Makes of the day, I wanted to pick something kind of patriotic. This bracelet is subtly patriotic, and is also a great piece to show your team spirit for teams with red and blue colors. The red and blue dangles are glass charms on a nickel free silver bangle bracelet. I really love this style of bracelet because it’s so easy! Just latch it and go, no fighting with a clasp. I also like that this hooks “in” toward the wrist so it doesn’t get caught on clothing or other jewelry. The charms give a little sparkle, but not too much. Because it’s simple and dainty, it can be worn with anything, from the most casual to the most formal. I especially love to wear my bracelet to support my favorite baseball team!

Dainty Mossy Green Square Beads on Gold Chain Bracelet

Jewelry

With Labor Day weekend comes the end of summer and unofficial beginning of fall (but dangit, I’ll wear white if I want to!). I LOVE this bracelet for fall. The mossy green beads and gold chain create a dainty, warm look.

Simple to wear on its own, or add to other bracelets for a layered look. The green beads have a bit of a antiqued, golden sheen to them which make them a little special.

I especially like this bracelet for the beginning of fall. The colors are very warm, and remind me of the trees before the leaves begin to turn. Get more info here!

Coral Seed Bead Stretch Bracelets

Jewelry

Happy Labor Day weekend! As summer comes to a close, I still like to wear these coral colored seed bead bracelets. They’re just a dark enough color to work really well in this transitional season. I always get a little sad when I put these away for the season, so I’m hoping to get lots of wear out of these before it gets too cold! I think I’ll be able to get a little more wear out of them than usual since I’m now living in the warmer south.

Blue Glass Starfish Wire Wrapped Ring

Jewelry

This is a piece I made ages ago, and it’s certainly not my best work, but we all have to start somewhere, right? This is one of the first wire-wrapped rings I ever made, and I love the glass starfish bead.

The glass used for these starfish beads is so interesting. It has a little bit of a marbled effect. The particular bead shown is mostly blue, but has a bit of white and even some coppery red marbled throughout. Really unique and really pretty.

My biggest motivation for posting this ring I’m less than proud of is to post an update in a few months when I become a little more comfortable with wire wrapping, kind of like a before and after comparison.

Do you wire wrap? I’d love to hear your tips and tricks!
