These vintage kite shaped Swarovski rhinestones are so royal looking! I was thinking that these are suitable for a princess, don't you agree? First I made the bracelet, the process was quick and easy and I named it Emerald Princess Rhinestone Bracelet :)

Swarovski rhinestones in royal emerald green color
and interesting kite shape.
Bracelet consist five metal plates that each has that special Swarovski stone in beautiful and timeless Emerald color. I added some clear colored rhinestones and tiny pearls. Those five metal plates are connected with links of vintage glass pearls and rhinestone rondelles.

Earrings were not so easy... I wanted to make a pair that has pearl dangles but couldn't figure out how to add odd number of those. The solution was very simple though. I just rotated the motif from horizontal to vertical.

from horizontal to vertical
These Emerald Princess earrings are fun! The pearl dangles add just enough movement and the centerpiece is still that vintage Swarovski kite shaped stone.

These are vintage Swarovski rhinestones. They are in beautiful, almost royal emerald green color! Shape reminds me of kite. I don't have the right setting for them so I need to improvise.

Dark red rhinestone brooch from the collection Flavors: Pomegranate. A mixture of different red hues with a hint of amethyst purple.

In the center of this small brooch is Swarovski Burgundy rhinestone that has a deep and mellow red color. It's difficult to capture with a photo but it so deep you can get lost :D

Making jewellery for bridal occasion is such a treat! For the wedding I can make something festive, sweet and sparkly with abundant of vintage glass pearls... Throughout my jewellery making there has been one special hair comb that proved to be popular among the brides. The basic design is simple - a flower motif with two wired branches on both sides.
|Bridal hair comb reinvented!|
Vintage jewellery materials are always limited, so every now and then I need to reinvent the design. This time I added vintage bronze colored glass beads I got from France to the bridal hair comb. Even though so tiny they have been faceted!
|New addition to these bridal hair comb design |
is the bronze colored tiny beads that add a bit of glamour.
