    My glamour accessory would have to be a diamond ring that my husband gave me. It sparkles and is really unique.

  • 2 Joyce james // Jan 17, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    My new Pandora bracelet!

  • 3 Amber F // Jan 17, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    My go to glamor accessory would be the black and purple flower necklace and earring set I made and the silk-wrapped bracelet my husband bought for me. It makes me feel feminine and elegant and at the same time unique.

  • 4 Linda S // Jan 17, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    My geode slice choker. It’s my favorite color, and it always makes me feel great. It’s a great eye-catching conversation starter.

  • 10 AshleiJ // Jan 17, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    I love earrings that make a statement, but also the ring my mother gave me for my college graduation. Daily staples!

  • 11 Pamela Hurlbert // Jan 17, 2013 at 3:15 pm

    I can’t go out without earrings. My favorite are gold wires that were a gift from my daughter.

  • 12 Kathy // Jan 17, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    The blue topaz jewelry my husband has collected for me.

  • 22 Pat // Jan 18, 2013 at 5:13 am

    I have a pendent that my husband made for me in a silversmithing class we took together. It is sterling and blue lace agate and it makes a statement whenever I wear it!

  • 23 Beth Kurcab // Jan 18, 2013 at 5:28 am

    I love purple so the Sugalite/Amethyst necklace with Hill Tribes Silver and black Crystal accent beads that I made is one I wear the most. The dangling earrings are Amethyst and Crystal.

  • 24 Betty S // Jan 18, 2013 at 5:33 am

    My diamond necklace that my hubby gave me for my 50th birthday. It was such a surprise

  • 25 Barbara Hart // Jan 18, 2013 at 5:34 am

  • 26 Jill W // Jan 18, 2013 at 5:40 am

    A diamond ring inherited from a great aunt when I was a little girl. Wearing it always makes me feel special.

  • 27 Colette M // Jan 18, 2013 at 5:51 am

    I suppose my piece of jewelry is a green amber and sterling silver pendant I got on a cruise to the western Caribbean. I always feel like I am back on the boat at one of the formal dinners when I wear it.

  • 28 J Bell // Jan 18, 2013 at 5:54 am

    One of my favorite pieces of jewelry is a simple strand of Swarovski 2.5 mm bicones in Crystal Golden Shadow. They reflect and refract light from every direction and ad just enough glitz to any outfit.

  • 29 MelodyJ // Jan 18, 2013 at 6:07 am

    I love the sangly green earrings I made on sterling silver chain .

  • 30 Julie P // Jan 18, 2013 at 6:21 am

    My special piece of jewellery is a byzantine chainmaille bracelet in sterling silver that I made with the intention of selling it – then couldn’t part with it!

  • 31 Paula Jones // Jan 18, 2013 at 6:23 am

    The beaded kumihimo with a beautiful Unicorne bicone bead necklace is quite elegant and one of my favorites.

  • 37 debi // Jan 18, 2013 at 6:55 am

    I made drop pearl & gemstone earrings that suit any occasion & I wear them often.

  • 40 Stacy Marie // Jan 18, 2013 at 7:03 am

    My favorite glamorous jewelry is my 20th anniversary gift-an Aquamarine stone in a pave’ setting, worn with a necklace I designed of swarovski white pearls, aqua crystals,and black onyx beads with tiny silver rounds as spacers.

  • 41 L Davis // Jan 18, 2013 at 7:05 am

    My engagement ring’s diamond stands a bit taller than I’d like, so I don’t always wear it. (It catches on things!) I usually just wear the matching wedding band. But for special occasions I wear them both together, and the extra sparkle makes me feel so fancy!

  • 42 Sharon H of Tenn // Jan 18, 2013 at 7:21 am

    For our 25th anniversary my husband gave me a beautiful ring with one stone for each year we`d been married. I love it and wear in when I need a lift.

  • 43 Angela Mullis // Jan 18, 2013 at 7:29 am

    I have a BEAUTIFUL cross with Opal and Diamonds that my husband gave me for our 15th Anniversary. (both of our birthstones!) it is FAB! I feel so glam when I wear it!

    Angi Mullis

  • 44 IBlossom // Jan 18, 2013 at 7:34 am

    I love my ring that is made of recycled glass. It is mostly red with some gold and black in it. It looks like an abstract painting on my finger!

  • 45 Jan // Jan 18, 2013 at 7:36 am

    There’s just something about diamonds and pearls that give me that feeling.

  • 46 Ruby Hubble // Jan 18, 2013 at 7:37 am

    I love beautiful colors that match an outfit. also the white and shiny beads to get attention and comments from others makes you feel great . I perfer the earrings, then bracelet, then necklace. the sets are great .But by choice in order the earrings first because when you talk to people that is first noticed . To be differant and knowing it is likeable will make anyones day especcially on special occasions..

  • 47 Janet Sullivan // Jan 18, 2013 at 7:38 am

    I have a gorgeous Ceylon Sapphire with Diamond accents that makes me feel wonderful when I wear it out on special occasions!

  • 48 Valerie // Jan 18, 2013 at 7:38 am

    My staple is a silver necklace with a treble cleft pendant that my father gave me. He knows my love of music and picked this out specifically for me. Love it!

  • 49 Julie // Jan 18, 2013 at 7:39 am

    I have an amethyst ring that I love to wear. It’s a great pick-me-up!

  • 50 pinkbeadingmama // Jan 18, 2013 at 7:46 am

    I love my black & silver swarovski crystal necklace I made to match a special bracelet I got after my grandma passed away. I love when light or the sun hit it shoots rainbows everywhere just like on Pollyanna.

  • 51 Diane Cortese // Jan 18, 2013 at 8:04 am

    Larimar / fresh water pearls

  • 52 Jennifer // Jan 18, 2013 at 8:14 am

    Any of my swarovski jewelry!

  • 53 betsyk // Jan 18, 2013 at 8:24 am

    Those are the most beautiful beads I’ve ever seen. I suppose my go to “glamour” accessory would have to be my pink silk tunic shirt with whichever pair of black leggings is clean. I don’t glamorous things very often. :-(

  • 54 Elizabeth H. // Jan 18, 2013 at 9:19 am

    Earrings for my best friend’s wedding reception!

  • 55 Tiana // Jan 18, 2013 at 9:32 am

    My favorite would be a simple silver chain necklace. Dangling from it would be a sapphire pendany. My favorite color is blue.

  • 56 Susan M // Jan 18, 2013 at 9:38 am

    My Goddaughter, the queen of bling would love these.

  • 57 Joy West // Jan 18, 2013 at 9:52 am

    I make most of my own “bling” but the most precious to me are the pieces given to me by my daughter and son. They make me feel special.

  • 58 jane Cable // Jan 18, 2013 at 10:05 am


  • 59 Barbie // Jan 18, 2013 at 10:06 am

    Any sparkling SWC. earrings I’ve made, or bracelets or necklaces ! I use SWC in almost every piece I make. They add such a sparkle to anything. I gotta’ have the bling. ; }

  • 60 Liz H // Jan 18, 2013 at 10:11 am

    My favourite is my special triangle pendant necklace, I’ve had it since I was little, it’s definitely good luck too.

  • 61 Becky R. // Jan 18, 2013 at 10:24 am

    I have a pair of sparkly earrings made of purple AB 12mm beads. It always cheers me up to wear those during these long winter days.

    Bling, Bling and more Bling. You are never too old for Bling.

  • 64 Jill Duncan // Jan 18, 2013 at 10:42 am

    Since I make jewelry, but don’t really have anywhere to go to wear the fancy stuff, I will just wear it around the house to clean and cook and such! I love the way it makes me feel!

  • 65 Diane Froh // Jan 18, 2013 at 10:44 am

    A necklace I made from a kit called “Twisted Sister.” It always gets compliments!

  • 66 Pamela Wallace // Jan 18, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    My star-worthy staple has got to be pearls! I made a thick multi strand pearl bracelet that consists of different shapes of pearls in earthy colors, and gold for a nice glow. I used a sterling silver tube slide clasp that’s easy to put on and take off.

  • 67 Jonalyn Young // Jan 18, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    I like to wear my creations when I’m with my friends. I guess I’m a show off.

  • 68 OriginalsbyInstinct // Jan 18, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    My go-to glamour jewellery is round faceted vintage AB Swarovski crystal earrings and a pendant. The simplicity is wonderful and any light is captured and reflected. I just love the way the light is transformed into beautiful colours. A must for any season.

  • 69 judy s // Jan 18, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    It still is and always will be my engagement ring.

  • 70 Leslie Zvolanek // Jan 18, 2013 at 1:35 pm

    I love the feeling that I get, when I put on my broad, flat gold snake necklace – it’s simple, and “gleamy”, and makes me feel proud and confident, and beautiful! My husband gave it to me, and he just glows when he sees me wearing it – and I love seeing him, feeling him, being proud of me, too!

  • 71 Angela Heaton // Jan 18, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    A sparkly pair of crystal earrings to catch the light when I walk into the room!

  • 72 Susan L // Jan 18, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    My go-to is always one of my handmade Swarovski crystal puffy heart necklaces! I always receive compliments and sometimes orders for one :-)

  • 73 Sherri Adkins // Jan 18, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    Love love love your website and products!

  • 74 jude // Jan 18, 2013 at 2:11 pm

    The rings my hubby gave me are a must, then it would be earrings, then a bracelet. Depending on the outfit – perhpas a necklace.

  • 75 Julie Shane // Jan 18, 2013 at 2:29 pm

    I’ve fallen in love with glass crystals and glass pearls. They come in SO many colors and sizes. I have made a couple of “blingy” pieces that I wear to dress up or with jeans. Their sparkle makes me smile.

  • 76 Diana lawless // Jan 18, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    So many things I could do with your giveaway.. Now I just have wait and hope you notify me (:

  • 79 Katherine // Jan 18, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    Simple, small, but sturdy silver hoop earrings.

  • 80 Rebecca // Jan 18, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    A sapphire ring :-)

  • 81 Renee // Jan 18, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    My one piece of jewelry for feeling red-carpet worthy and just plain fabulous, is a necklace that I made. It is a gold-filled, wire-wrapped pendant of fiber-optic glass in cream and Kelly green and looks vaguely like a chrysanthemum design. The wrapped topper is a swirl alternating with clear AB Swarovski bicones and gold-filled beads. It is strung on a necklace alternating between cream-colored faceted jade beads and vintage green Japanese glass beads with dividing accents of either clear AB Swarovski bicones or gold-filled beads. Of course I had to make matching earrings in the jade & glass beads with a gold bead and crystal. The ensemble makes me feel very elegant.

  • 82 Theresa R. Williams // Jan 18, 2013 at 5:26 pm

    I love rings made from Delicas, especially ones using shades of gold, like white gold and yellow gold.

  • 83 nels // Jan 18, 2013 at 6:03 pm

  • 84 BevM // Jan 18, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    My jade and diamond ring!

  • 85 Jamie S // Jan 18, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    Everything birth stone!

  • 86 Mary Jo // Jan 18, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    I have a pair of fused glass earrings that a friend made for me. They are striking teal and black and go with almost everything.

  • 87 Victoria Lane // Jan 18, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    I have a fabulous bracelet in shades of pink and a little purple. It has light siam ab bicones and several different colors and sizes of seed beads. I never fail to get compliments every time I wear it. It’s equally at home paired with a little black dress or jeans.

  • 88 Erika Anderson // Jan 18, 2013 at 10:55 pm

    My favorite piece of jewelry is my triple hearts ring made with my engagement diamond and the birthstones of my two children. Since my husband passed it is one of my best reminders of our life together and what it produced.

  • 89 Lynda Pelletier // Jan 18, 2013 at 11:01 pm

  • 90 Aimee M. // Jan 19, 2013 at 1:07 am

    My fav jewelry is a gorgeous gemstone and sterling silver necklace and bracelet handcrafted set that my son bought for me in South Africa a year ago. It has huge faceted gemstones (citrine, amber, carnelian, tiger’s eye, amethyst, onyx, lapis lazuli, and, more), all set with sterling silver bead caps and spacers and beads up the wazoo! and, even crystals! It is just the most amazing jewelry I have ever owned. This set can be worn formal or casual and anyway in between, which I do, with sooo many compliments.

    PS: It actually looks a bit like the necklace in the banner ArtBeads has at the top of this page.

  • 91 Chippy // Jan 19, 2013 at 4:55 am

    My favourite is an 81/2 ft lariat made by me with crystal stuffed wire knitted “pillows” and chain

  • 92 Deborah // Jan 19, 2013 at 5:23 am

    Love Artbeads, great quality products!!

  • 93 Monica // Jan 19, 2013 at 6:17 am

    My favorite would have to be the diamond ring my husband bought me for our 20th anniversary. (That was over 9 years ago and I still get lots of compliments on my ring – he did a great job! :) )

  • 94 Jennifer P // Jan 19, 2013 at 8:52 am

    You are describing one of my necklaces perfectly. I made some polymer clay beads, showed them to my 12 year old son, and asked him to design a necklace. He designed, I put it all together, and voila! It’s that one piece that makes me feel like a million bucks!

  • 95 Leslie Cordery // Jan 19, 2013 at 10:31 am

    My go glamour accessory has always been a pair of diamond earrings that my husband gave to me years ago. But I reciently made a pair of Swarovski heliotrope earrings that I love and have been wearing those.

  • 101 Melissa McDorman // Jan 21, 2013 at 7:40 am

    My favorite piece of jewelry is a chunky sterling silver ring. It was handmade and carved with the fertility symbol that I have tattooed on my hip. My man bought it for me last Christmas :) I’m addicted to silver rings, but this is now my favorite.

  • 102 Patsy Yoke // Jan 21, 2013 at 8:01 am

    My fav earrings are a pair I made. Simple but elegant pair of swarovski dangle earrings hanging from a small amount of chain. . . classy!

  • 103 Jan Abernethy // Jan 21, 2013 at 8:33 am

    When my Dad died, we had a blanket of roses made for him. The roses were turned into beads that had turned black. I made a bracelet and long dangling earrings from them. I love wearing them because of him, and somehow they make me feel warm and beautiful! I have them on right now.

  • 104 Debbie // Jan 21, 2013 at 9:23 am

    I have a Emerald necklace that dates back to 1895… It belonged to my greatgreat grandmother… it is filigree, lace style, with an emerald cut emerald, with 2 super tiny diamonds…
    I love this necklace, and it seems to go with everything, no matter the color, but really sets off a lil black dress.

  • 108 Amy A // Jan 21, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    Any of the swarovski crystal necklaces that I’ve made. They always add a wonderful sparkle to even the plainest outfit.

  • 109 Melody Ludholtz // Jan 21, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    I have a beautiful white gold cocktail ring with a large oval ruby and diamonds surrounding that belonged to my aunt, and a relative of hers before that. It sets off a lot of different outfits, and jazzes up anything.

  • 110 Carla Wentzell // Jan 21, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    I would have to say the engagement my second husband gave me. :)

  • 119 Linda R // Jan 21, 2013 at 1:20 pm

    Sparkly earrings !

  • 120 Nancy P // Jan 21, 2013 at 1:30 pm

    These are exactly the kind of earrings I love to wear! Normally when I make any jewelry it is for another member of my family. Should I should be lucky enough to win the Aurelia Earrings, they would be keepers!

  • 121 Nicole // Jan 21, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    I don’t have a specific piece to glam up an outfit. I have a ton of jewlery and choose them dependent upon my outfit.

  • 122 Judy Zerbe // Jan 21, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    I love sparkle. Diamonds would fit the bill!

  • 123 Amber // Jan 21, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    My go-to glamour accessory is actual a cuff bracelet I picked up for $1.99…it was a damaged piece that I transformed…It already had some interesting designs on it, it is a gunmetal-ish tone, and has gunmetal-ish round stones surrounding an oval shape where a stone once sat. I removed some of the original decor, but left the dark stones. I chose to add Swarovski Crystal Moonlight oval rhinestone as the centerpiece, and added tiny matching rhinestones and silver filigree links on either side. I always get compliments on it, and it is super sparkly and glamourous, with a little rocker edge to it :)

    My go to piece is any one of Glo Bullocks pieces – a wonderful local jewelry designer who should be in NY city or LA

    My grandmother’s aquamarine cocktail ring is my favorite thing to wear on special occasions. It is sterling silver sunbeam style with some faux pave around the center stone!

  • 127 Linda K // Jan 21, 2013 at 3:25 pm

    Beautiful colors!

    My glamour accessory is a swarovski crystal bracelet I made with the crystal silver shade and crystal silver night bicones. The clasp is a beadelle toggle in the gunmetal finish.

    My mother’s ring that she designed with diamonds from several other rings. That and any of my wire wrapped pieces.

    My silver choker with a silver amulet-I feel elven!

  • 131 Pam DeWispelaere // Jan 21, 2013 at 6:09 pm

    I made a simple bracelet with silver plate tubes/noodles, with center focal of 4 and 6 mm crystals surrounding sterling silver oval bead. The clasp includes small chain length the crystal dangle. It is simple but beautiful and I wear it more than anything else.

    Hands down, my most “wow” piece of jewelry is a Paul Klecka ring. I received it for our 10th year anniversary present. It is so amazing. It basically looks like an engagement and a wedding band. The ring wraps around my finger without making a complete circle–the “engagement” section is yellow gold in a high invisible round diamond setting and the “band” part is flat platinum channel set with princess cut diamonds. Anterior 14 years, I still get a thrill looking at it and wearing it.

    I have a piece of costume jewelry that looks fabulous. Even though it is the Evenstar necklace from LOTR, those who are not familiar with the books/films think it is a stunning necklace. Those that are familiar quickly become green with envy.

    I made a charm bracelet of black and silver, including vintage buttons crystals and Chezch beads. Its my go to for something sparkly and special.

  • 135 Nancy // Jan 22, 2013 at 8:21 am

    I wear a pair of rock crystal dangles with everything.

  • 136 Mary E // Jan 22, 2013 at 9:20 am

    My grandmas diamond ring, it is very sparkly!

  • 137 Jayne // Jan 22, 2013 at 1:15 pm

    For me it would be diamond earrings I got as a gift a few years back.

  • 138 rhamesses // Jan 22, 2013 at 3:48 pm

    My go-to is a vintage Whiting & Davis 3-coil snake bracelet that I got at the flea market many years ago! It’s so sparkly & slinky and reminds me of Liz Taylor whenever I put it on! I try to always wear something with Swarovski crystal or rhinestones to go with it.

  • 139 CraftyHope // Jan 22, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    I just received this really cheap rhinestone bracelet but the design reminds me of the 20s. It’s flirty and girly and boy does it sparkle!

  • 140 Alison Albert // Jan 22, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    I love my moonstone and 24k gold plated bead beaded bead earrings that I made. They make me feel like a movie star when I wear them. :)

  • 141 Jody Blackwell // Jan 22, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    My “glam style” would have to be the Fire and Ice earrings that I made, with silver heart links and Swarovski Crystals…

  • 142 Paula Brown // Jan 23, 2013 at 8:17 am

    Anything that sparkles!

  • 143 Kathy Sommers // Jan 23, 2013 at 8:22 am

    I have been ordering from you for quite sometime. Prices are great, service is wonderful and the free shipping is a plus. I love ArtBeads!
    And my favorite piece is a pair of green and sterling earrings that were my Mom’s. She died in 2004 of breast cancer and when I need her, I put on her earrings and fell like I have her a little closer.

  • 144 Kathy Sommers // Jan 23, 2013 at 8:24 am

    My favorie piece is a pair of green and sterling earrings that were my Mom’s. We lost her in 2004 to breast cancer and I still miss her terribly. When I need her, I put her earrings on and I feel her with me. I also take her to all the family gatherings and other FUN stuff…

  • 145 Patt Helton // Jan 23, 2013 at 8:36 am

    My go-to jewelry is always a pair of earrings. I don’t feel dressed without earrings to match whatever I’m wearing. I’ve been known to make a pair of earrings after I’m dressed so that they match my outfit. My favorite pair are gold wishbone earrings given to me by my Dad . He passed away in 1981 so I treasure them.

  • 146 Susan Berger // Jan 23, 2013 at 8:53 am

    Anything with diamonds makes me feel dressed and ready to hit the red carpet, even if only in my dreams!

  • 147 Karen Fortney // Jan 23, 2013 at 8:54 am

    I really can’t pick one, since each and every piece means something to me

  • 148 Cherie Smith // Jan 23, 2013 at 9:03 am

    Years ago my mother gave me a wonderful pair of dangly crystal earrings that belonged to my grandmother….instant glamour! :-)

  • 149 Lorelea Roberts // Jan 23, 2013 at 9:19 am

    I have silver and black crystal dangle earring and necklace. Lots of sparkle, but elegant!

  • 150 Diane Ballum // Jan 23, 2013 at 9:41 am

    I have two fav. pieces. One being my Pandora Bracelet from my husband, and beautiful Plumeria Flower Earrings with a diamond, from two dear freinds of mine in Hawaii. Both make me feel special when I wear them!!!

  • 151 Eugenie // Jan 23, 2013 at 10:15 am

    I have a long lapis lazuli necklace that I always feel fabulous wearing.

  • 152 Jennifer // Jan 23, 2013 at 11:10 am

    My go to accessory is always my sterling silver chain. I usually wear the same pendant, but I switch it off every so often. It just always make me feel wonderful. And I have a habit of reaching up and playing with it, so I have to have something there.

  • 153 Betty D // Jan 23, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    My favorite is my 40th wedding anniversary ring. Sterling and a paisley full of diamonds with swirls and swirls. Beautiful. The hubby has good taste!

  • 154 Carol Cowles // Jan 23, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    Love bling. With I had more of it. These earrings would be a great addition!

  • 155 Christine // Jan 23, 2013 at 3:48 pm

    I love to wear jewelry that sparkles, and with the pieces I make, and the items I have received as gifts from my husband, I never have to look far for something that will fill that need.

  • 156 Pam S // Jan 23, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    These are gorgeous. They just glow!
