Unique Artisan Jewelry With a Twist by FuchsiaBloomStudio!
Today we're dropping into FuchsiaBloomStudio! Offering pretty bracelets, hair accessories, bridal jewelry and so much more, this amazing Etsy shop is home base to a very talented young jewelry designer! Shoppers can easily visit her pretty collection of handmade gemstone jewelry here, where these beautiful items can be purchased directly from the artist. When you visit, you'll see pearl and stone necklaces like the lovely Summer in Cairo-Freshwater Pearl and Swarovski Crystal Necklace and the gorgeous Summer Leaves-Green Freshwater Pearl and Crystal Large Lariat. These necklaces are perfect accessories for the spring and summer season; they're very well made and quite fashionable! Most of the jewelry offered at FuchsiaBloomStudio is in the two earrings galleries. Visit the metalworked earrings section to find over 40 different styles, all featuring sparkling crystal, amazing art glass or gorgeous gemstones. The prices are quite reasonable ... at the time I wrote this review the most expensive pair in this gallery were the Earth Mother 2 - Gold Filled Organic Hoops - Forest, listed at $35.00! The metal used to make the earrings in this section is mostly sterling silver; there are a few pair made with copper and gold filled components. The designs are unique yet classic, and help draw the eye to the sparkling crystal, pearls, gemstone beads and top quality art glass! The Selena Earrings showcase wire-wrapped aqua briolettes suspended from hammered sterling silver wire spirals. They're very affordable at just $30.00, and are available in other colors by request! If you like briolettes, you'll find a lot to love in this shop! The Simplicity Earrings are a great example ... sterling wire-wrapped citrine briolettes dangle from a hand hammered silver bar, extending them to a stylish 2" length. This design is also offered in other gemstones, as you can see in the featured photo of the Simplicity Earrings in Carnelian! If you like Ocean Jasper as much as I do, you'll love the Sand and Sea Earrings! This pretty pair of dangles are a good choice if you prefer earth tones like greens and browns. The ocean jasper rectangles dangle from sterling bars, and are accented with pretty beige color pearls ... With 88 pair of earrings to choose from, the beaded earrings gallery is the star of the show in this shop! You'll find the prices here are quite affordable - starting at just $12.00, and ranging up to the high end at $30.00. There is a great variety here, and every pair was made lovingly by hand with the finest materials. One example are the pretty Serene Sky-Aqua Pearl Faye Earrings, made with a cluster of pale aqua pearls dangling from sterling silver wire, hanging 1 1/2 inches from silver french hook ear wires. This artisan offers this style in a variety of pearl colors, or a choice of Swarovski crystal in place of the pearls by request. This makes these the perfect choice for a wedding party - because they can be color coordinated with your bridesmaids' dresses! For an elegant formal affair, you might want the Blackberries - Black and Purple Chandelier Earrings. These dramatic chandelier style dangles are also availabel in a variety of colors! As shown, they're made with black Czech crystal and mauve color pearls ... and they're a fabulous deal at just $30.00. Please visitFuchsiaBloomStudio today and explore this wonderful shop. If you've got a wedding planned for this spring or summer, this artisan will work with you to design the perfect jewelry accessories!
