Bead Dangle Earrings with Vintage Glitter Beads – Handmade Jewelry on Etsy

Bead Dangle Earrings with Vintage Glitter Beads – Handmade Jewelry on Etsy

Most of my handmade jewelry is very colorful but I do love to collect unique and rare vintage beads.  These simple but elegant and even super sparkly earrings can easily get overlooked in my colorful store. They have a modern and some say Asian feel to them. The unusual vintage taupe colored corrugated tube beads were a fabulous find!  They have cool gold flecks of glitter in them and look great with the black glass pearls and sparkly clear crystals. Since they are neutral in color they can go with anything! Long skinny dangle earrings look great on almost anyone but especially those of us with wide or round faces; they can help slim the face!  Be sure to check out my Etsy store for more  handmade earrings  and  other  modern, vintage and upcycled jewelry.  To get directly to these unique earrings click on the photos.

7 Top Looks From The VIP Blog and BluKatDesign Jewelry

Vintage Inspired Passionista

Flower earrings worn by the Vintage Inspired Passionista

I “met” Abby when she was only sixteen …or maybe fifteen, she was such an amazing kid blogger it was hard to believe she was only 16!  Now she is already 18 and so grown up and busy living in Alabama as a freelance writer, stylist, and blogger!  I think her mom bought some jewelry from me a couple years ago for her to use on Abby’s blog, The Vintage Inspired Passionista and later I asked if they wanted to trade some more jewelry for photos.  I get some awesome photos of my jewelry and Abby gets some cool jewelry in return plus they are some of my best customers too! In the top photo  Abby is sporting my button stud earrings.  Above she is wearing my vintage inspired enameled pink flower earrings!  Be sure to click on the photos of Abby to see her articles!  I make these flower earrings in many colors and sometimes make flower pendants also! Below is a pair in turquoise:

This is one of my favorite looks that Abby has put together; with the coolest green dress, leather jacket and a long necklace made from an upcycled glass knob!  These necklaces are so fun to make; I have them in all sorts of colors including this colorful Day of the Dead inspired necklace:

Abby, the VIP with BKD earrings!

I am not quite sure how to describe these earrings; kind of modern but vintage!  These are very sparkly and made with interesting vintage tube beads that have gold glitter in them. They are a neutral color so they go with anything. Long skinny earrings flatter wider faces like mine!   I love how Abby paired them with a teal blazer (my color!) .

Check the dangle earrings out in my Etsy store:

Sparkling Hot!

These are my glittery, sparkling disco ball dangle earrings;  they are fun to wear!  I also make these retro style earrings in black, silver, red, lavender and more!

repurposed vintage

I love this look with an upcycled minty light green heart shaped necklace made from vintage brooches and earrings!  I love all of these colors together; they work perfectly because they are the same tone.  A lot of my necklaces are one of a kind; I have similar vintage button necklaces in my shop made with vintage buttons and earrings:
