A touch of bling....

I have been asked by to join their blogging program, I accepted this great challenge and look forward to creating with their wonderful products. I was so excited to receive my first delivery of products, and look how nicely they were packaged!

Artbeads has declared August and September
as the months of Swarovski
have over 5,000 different
items from
Swarovski including beads, pendants,
rhinestones, buttons, chain
and more.
In other words, everything you need to
create the most dazzling

Add ImageWhen I chose these gorgeous ruby briolette's I knew I wanted to make earrings out of them. The color is so rich and the crystals just sparkle! I haphazardly wrapped the briolettes in sterling to give them a urban feel. I also used a link of sterling silver cuplink crystal chain for some added bling, sterling ear wires were then added. I oxidized all the sterling then buffed up some of the edges for an aged look.

You can find these in my Judith B. Designs Etsy shop.

Many thanks to for this great opportunity...I look forward to creating with the rest of my gifts.
