Historically Inspired: Emerald Princess Rhinestone Jewelry

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 :)

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.

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

Vintage Emerald Green

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. 
These rhinestones are definitely old, with K. S & Co Edelweiss logo and two digit article code. The faceting is perfect and the gold foiling backing these stones mint!
Just look at these perfect cuts! These look brand new!!!

Bridal Hair comb with Rhinestones and Pearls

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!
