Handmade Jewelry by AbacusBeadCreations!
Jewelry has been around for thousands of years. People love wearing jewelry for many reasons, and no one knows exactly how it started. One thing we do know is that jewelry made with beads is one of the oldest forms of jewelry found to date; natural fiber, pierced seeds and shells were among the first materials used to create jewelry. One of the most amazing things is that no matter where people exist - in the most remote places, isolated from the rest of the world - handmade jewelry plays a role in their lives! AbacusBeadCreations has helped to keep this traditional method of jewelry making popular in our modern world! The handmade jewelry created by this artisan is a far cry from the seed, shell and bone jewelry made by those first jewellery makers; made with modern materials, the jewelry made by this talented artisan is very different. But the basic idea hasn't changed; people love to wear jewelry ... When you visit AbacusBeadCreations, you'll find the jewelry has been arranged in convenient categories to make shopping easy. You can visit each section , go right to the type of jewelry you prefer, or browse aimlessly through the item pages; whatever you choose to do, you'll find beautiful pieces that fit into your everyday lifestyle. There are lots of pieces to choose from - pretty necklaces, fashionable bracelets and sparkling earrings that are colorful and fun to wear! Jewelry can also be functional, and Peg - the artisan who makes the handcrafted jewelry displayed in this shop - is very aware of that! Offering a great selection of lovely beaded watches, handy eyeglass holders and popular lanyards for holding ID badges, keys and whistles allows you to look good while keeping these important items in a convenient place. The Mohave Green Turquoise and Chalk Turquoise Eyeglass Holder is a great example of the functional jewelry made by this artisan. The dyed blue chalk turquoise and the beautiful Mohave green turquoise are complimented by silver beads, and sections of green, turquoise blue and white seed beads. The ends are finished with Wire Guardians to prevent the beading cord from wear; and each end terminates with a rubber eyeglass holder. This 30" beauty is just $22.00! At work you have to wear your ID badge all day. Or keys. If you're a coach, maybe you wear a whistle. So you wear these things on a lanyard. Thing is ... most lanyards are boring. They all look the same ... cord. Sure, maybe you can find a different color cord. Well, now you can look good while keeping your essentials right where you can find them! This artisan offers fabulous beaded lanyards like the Indian Jasper with Picture Jasper and Bronze Lanyard that will make all your co-workers jealous! Made with two different types of jasper, bronze colored Czech glass beads, green and copper colored seed beads, a silver plated swivel and a nice big split ring, this piece isn't only functional - it looks fabulous! This lanyard is 32" in length and is just $20.00 ... Peg makes gorgeous jewelry, and her bracelets are no exception! This Vintage Rose Crystal, Gray Pearl and Sterling Silver Bali Bead Bracelet is so pretty, and quite affordable at $22.00. You may prefer something with a brighter color, like the Carnelian and Multi-Colored Swarovski Crystal Bracelet, also affordably priced - at $20.00! Or you might like the eclectic mix of colors in the fabulous Tiger Iron Moukaite Crystal Copper Chunky Bracelet, shown above - at only $32.00! This jewelry artisan tries to keep her jewelry priced reasonably, but the design quality is top notch. Just look at these Baby Blue Pearl White Curved Pearl Earrings with Ornate Silver Findings ... they're glamourous earrings with a very sophisticated appearance ... and they're just $20.00.
