Do you make seasonal jewelry?

I rarely make seasonal jewelry, but this year I am giving it a try.

I am pleased with the outcome so far. I wanted to stay true to my bohemian style and also create a piece that could be worn anytime, Valentine's Day or not.
Gypsy Love is a long boho chic necklace. I found this cool heart pendant from a bead supplier in Turkey. It is always so fun to receive packages from overseas and especially an exotic country like Turkey.

You can viewGypsy Love here.



The Love Me necklace has a very old fashion flare. My Mother in law sent me these glass pearls from her Mother's jewelry box.

I bought some E6000 glue and Liver of Sulfur last week and had to play with my new supplies. I loved it and was looking around the house to see if there was anything else I could glue or oxidize! I am going to have fun playing in the coming weeks.

You can see more of Love Me necklace here.

I have another necklace in the works. I hope to complete it today. I am experimenting with strips of silk fabric and wire wrapping pearls around it.

Would love to hear how others do with seasonal designs.

Why you make them or don't make them? Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Love the bottom necklace! I make seasonal jewelry sometimes and it almost always sells. Recently I made some bobby pins made especially for people with certain color hair.

Your style shines through with the hearts!
I do make seasonal jewelry. I sell a lot of hearts off Etsy and enough on Etsy to list them.
Here's a tip in case you're interested:
You can put your jewelry in the holidays category for the main cat, followed by valentine,jewelry, and then whatever it is: necklace,earrings,etc.

Forgot to mention.....I was talking about the jewelry with hearts on it. They can go in the holidays cat.
