Custom Ordered Turquoise Tube Triple Wrap Bracelet

I recently received a custom order for 3 wrap bracelets, and I was verrrry excited to try out the first bracelet in the order, the triple wrap bracelet, with my new turquoise tube beads. I love the way this style bracelet look with the round/spherical beads, and also with the cones, but the evenness of the tube beads to me just looks extremely cool. The three wraps just line up so nicely next to each other on my wrist. This lakeshore lavaliere triple wrap turquoise tube bead bracelet is made with brown silk thread and brown suede cord….

and is topped off with an antique gold button for the clasp/closure. After making this one, I decided I am definitely going to purchase more tube beads in different colors- so let me know if you have any requests for colors! Now I have to go back to making the other 2 bracelets from this order!

Dyed Turquoise Beaded Necklace

Yesterday I realized I hadn’t added anything to the lakeshore lavaliere fall line recently, so I decided to go hunting for more beads that reflect the colors of fall. I found these amazing dyed turquoise orange stone beads, (which are similar to the ones I used previously in the lakeshore lavaliere Turquoise Drop Triple Chain necklace) and had to have them:

 

Real turquoise is hard to come by right now, and fairly expensive, so when I saw these beads I really just had to have them. I love the earthy feel they have and the way the orange swirls with the other colors. These beads just remind me of the wide variety of oranges, browns, tans, etc. that the leaves change in the fall- and those are my favorite colors! I will definitely create more pieces with the rest of these beads, but there aren’t many of them and I can’t buy more because they are no longer available, so these pieces will really be one=of-a-kind.  I’ll have more necklaces and accessories to post later today, so check back later for more new pieces!

Wrap Bracelets

Wrap Bracelets are in right now, and I’ve been seeing them all over the place in every color bead/stone and leather/suede cord imaginable. I have seen them in single wrap, double, and more. Over the weekend I decided to try my hand at making them, and here are a few of the ones that I’ve made so far:

New Fall Line: Bohemian Style Necklaces & Bracelets

The bohemian look- at least in jewelry- is back, and I’ve been seeing reflections of it everywhere. I took this picture at this amazing store called 2 Old Hippies (which is kind of like Anthropologie, but even more expensive!).
Image
A good amount of these necklaces were going for almost $700 each- but they were absolutely gorgeous.

Anyways, the bohemian/hippie beaded look for jewelry is an awesome style to use with the earth tones characteristic of fall trends. I still threw in a bit of turquoise, because, well, I love it, and because it makes a nice contrast to the other fall colors. Here are some of the new lakeshore lavaliere bohemian style necklaces and bracelets:ImageImageImage

More Jewelry in Fall Reds

I am just obsessed with the colors of fall-especially all the different shades of red that show up in the trees as the seasons change. So, I have many pieces for the upcoming months that try to capture the reds of the leaves, like this necklace and pair of earrings:

Necklaces for the Fall

As we shift into the fall season, the color trends shift  as well. Colors of closet staples like the every occasion dress, jacket, shirt or pants for this season reflect a significant amount of black or grey. Accessories & accent clothing pieces in designers’ fall lines change from the pastels, brights, and neons of summer, to earth tones & colors such as red or scarlet, dark orange or rust, and darker purples. For those of us who like to keep up with the trends without breaking the bank, and who want to add a punch of color to the grey /black dress/outfit that is a staple of the fall wardrobe, necklaces that reflect the colors of fall are great accent piece, like this lakeshore lavaliere red stone necklace with a gold elephant pendant:

                            

OR this lakeshore lavaliere rust & mustard colored stone necklace:

Turquoise Necklaces & Elephants

Turquoise Chain Necklaces:

Simple chain necklaces with turquoise beads are great pieces to wear alone:

or layered with other necklaces:
 

A simple turquoise beaded necklace with a small pendant is also a great accessory if you aren’t into the layered look. Necklaces with small pendants are a cool way to use a necklace make a statement without creating too much visual weight (as larger pendants can do), and can be accented with other jewelry without making you look too over accessorized. I saw these elephants in NYC and knew they would be perfect to make into small pendants- (and I just LOVE elephants):

Fringed Necklaces

Fringe is back in! It can be seen on anything- boots, shirts, purses, you name it. The fringe look has a hippie vibe, and also a vintage-y feel so I just had to see how it would turn out when applied to jewelry:

New York Supply Trip!

I’m in New York, and yesterday I decided to wander around and try to find a jewelry supply store, but google maps on my phone clearly wasn’t working. I typed in bead stores, and the whole screen lit up with red pins as if I’d asked google maps to, I don’t know, somehow give me directions to like, all of the people within a 5 block radius. Not possible. But, as I’m shuffling forward perplexedly staring at my phone, I look up only to realize that I have run into 5 solid blocks of bead and jewelry supply stores. It was Mecca for jewelry makers. As I walked from store to store, looking in the windows, I found:

It was a sign. So, I went inside this store, and several others, and bought some supplies to fill custom orders, and to stock up.

I’m going to make a trip back to that little strip of Heaven over there today, so, if anyone has any more custom orders or requests, get them in now so that I can go purchase the materials today. 

Here are just a few pictures of some of the materials I picked up:
