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!

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!

Beachy Decor Glass Ornaments

Home Decor

As summer comes to a close, I’m looking back on these ornaments I hand painted in beautiful beachy colors. I especially love the frosted, matte finish of these. That finish, to me, makes these look a little more rustic, beachy cabin, instead of in-your-face shiny ornaments.

While these would look beautiful on a Christmas tree, I actually prefer this type of look and ornament for other types of decor, like hanging from ornament stands as nursery or baby shower decor, or even ornaments on an Easter tree. Of course the sky is the limit when working with plain, solid colors like these! Find more info here!

Tortoise Shell Colored Glass Bead Memory Wire Bracelet

Jewelry

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!
