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.
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.

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).
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!
A lot. So, why not glitter up some ornaments?! I wanted to make something that would make a fun Thanksgiving tree/arrangement and came up with these colors. These sparkle like CRAZY! I used the floor polish + glitter instructions you can find anywhere online. I definitely prefer a finer glitter – you get a lot more shine out of a finer glitter as opposed to a chunkier type.
I also made the “tree” shown in the photos. I searched and searched for a cheap, generic tree that could be decorated for any season, not just Christmas. I couldn’t find anything, so I decided to make my own! I purchased some sticks from a craft store, but you could definitely just pick up some sticks from your backyard (not an option in the urban areas I’ve lived in!). I used floral foam secured to the bottom of a galvanized bucket, then filled the bucket with some awesome glittery/sequined fall floral filler. I really love the way the tree/bush turned out, and it’s surprisingly sturdy!
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!

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!
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.
This bracelet made of glass beads on memory wire is a great fall accessory. The warm colors are perfectly cozy yet shiny. Tones of yellow, orange, green, gold, brown and bronze are randomly placed along the bracelet.
I love hiking in the fall to look at the wonderful colors of changing leaves. This bracelet brings that experience and those colors to you! The perfect fall accessory.
As a recent transplant to the south, I CANNOT. WAIT. for fall this year. Since I’m not sure I’m going to get many crisp fall days, I’m placing a lot more emphasis on my clothing, jewelry and makeup to get me in the swing of the season. I wanted to carry that over to what I’m creating this time of year, and this was one of the first things to come out of the fall inspiration.
These glass beads are neat for a few reasons. First, they’re an interesting shape. Most beads I work with are symmetrical and these are more of a teardrop shape. Second, they’ve got some really neat two-tone coloring. One side of the bead is a subtly metallic bronze color while the other side is a smoky crystal color with a subtle mirrored gold finish over parts of this section. The effect is a little bit of shine and sparkle without TOO much, and the colors remind me of tortoise shell.
Memory wire bracelets are great because they’re just so easy. They don’t need to be clasped or adjusted, just put on and go. I’ve really fallen in love with this format because of the ease of wearing them, but also because of the multi-row effect memory wire creates. This bracelet is great to wear alone but is also simple enough to wear with other bracelets for an autumn arm party!
