Jewelry is a girl’s best friend but it hasn’t always been kind to her pocket book. Alas, things are looking up. With the price of gold these days, handcrafted beaded jewelry has surged in popularity and merged from day wear, to the dance floor and wedding altar.
That’s a welcomed trend, cutting accessory costs to a mere fraction of what it used to be. And there’s so much more variety, colors and designs available – so your buck goes even further. Add to that the two ways you can save money with handcrafted beaded jewelry and you’re on a (savings) roll!
First, you can cut out the middle man and go straight to the handcrafter, buying at cheaper wholesale prices. That can save you a bundle in itself, but if you have a crafty side, you may even want to explore the craft of making your own beaded jewelry to save even more. There’s lots of choice when it comes to buying beads and supplies.
But crafting isn’t everyone’s cup of tea and buying handcrafted jewelry that’s ready to wear, is a time saver. Handcrafted beaded jewelry also makes a very nice gift.
I’ve chosen three pieces of handcrafted beaded jewelry sold by Leah’s Dreams to feature, just to give you an idea of how beautiful handcrafted beaded jewelry can be. The design details, luster and color of these sets just amazes me. I can picture the last set being perfect for a bride. Imagine the rest of the bridal party wearing something similar, yet just as elegant.
This is my favorite. The Garden Set includes the necklace, bracelet and earrings. It’s so pretty and refreshing – like a summer garden breeze. So inviting, it’s sure to stir up some conversation.

Stunning is the best way I can describe the Gold Coral Set. There’s a whimsical and carefree nature to the design that whispers – mysterious.
