Special Limited Editions

As a regular part of my collection at JuliaCatherine.etsy.com, from time to time I do limited edition items. Typically in relations to the seasons. My last limited edition nearly sold out in less than 4 days. There is a single pair of that limited edition left. Click here or on the photo to go purchase them.

My next limited edition will be for sale in the coming weeks. But here is a sneak preview. They are a Holiday earring. They are made from a vintage peppermint bead and accented on the bottom by a clear Swarovski crystal bead. These are very much inspired by the Christmas Holiday for me. The peppermints reminds us of the sugar plum dreams dancing in our heads. The Swarovski crystals are reminiscent of the snowy magic we all dream of for Christmas day. The light dances over the Swarovski crystals like Christmas lights dancing across the snowy icicles on a late Christmas afternoon. Gosh I just can't wait now. I will be making 16 pairs of these earrings. A few will be given to friends and family so estimate that only about 12 pairs will be available for purchasing. Like I said before though these are not yet available for purchase on JuliaCatherine.etsy.com but will be in the coming weeks.

Falling into fall...

Fall is in full swing right about now! Everyone loves this season between summer and winter. The changing colors of the leaves and the smell of fall! For the occasion i have created some GORGEOUS pieces for fall, all of which can be found in my etsy store. My absolute favorites are these few things.

The Oak leaf charm necklace. The oak leaf is made from an Oak Leaf Charm Iridized in Beautiful Autumn Colors, This charm has been Iridized and has gone through a process of blending colors and having several coats of Polyurethane to protect the finish. Colors are Fade Resistant. It's absolutely GORGEOUS! I have embellished the charm with other charms of czech glass beads and swarovski pearls in a beautiful golden color. This particular necklace comes with a matching pair of earrings. Click the photo to go directly to the listing.

The second fall item im featuring is the Almost Fall Cluster ring. It's sort of like that time around late September where there is still alot green on the trees but just a hint of those fall browns and goldens peeking through. I have created this ring using goldtone wire, a pea green vintage czech glass bead, russian amazonite, a maple leaf glass bead, pressed czech glass green trumpet flowers and on the underside chocolate brown vintage glass beads. This ring comes in a size 7. Click on the photo to go directly to the listing in my etsy store.

The last (but not at all least) for my fall picks is my Vintage Picasso Bead and Swarovski Pearl Earrings. The Top bead is a Pressed Czech Glass flower bead in picasso color, dangling from that is the vintage picasso bead, The vintage picasso beads are so gorgeous, they have such great detail and beauty in them. And dangling below that is 3 small swarovski crystal pearls in an olive color. The swarovski pearls bring that finishing touch to these earrings. I dont think they would be quite the same without the pearls to finish them off. You can go directly to the listing in my etsy store by clicking on the photo of the earrings.
