FREE Xmas earrings if you comment

I’ve updated this website to offer a more streamlined showcase of my various ranges and styles, as well as adding brief “about” and “contact” links.

FREE CHRISTMAS EARRINGS to the first three people (in New Zealand) to comment on my Facebook post. If you’re overseas, I’m happy to send earrings if you pay the postage via my online shop.

Cheers, Bronwyn

Aviary of Feathered Jewellery

I’ve renamed some of my ranges and portfolios recently. For example, my hand-knitted hats and beanies are now themed as “Head Start” (previously called Tip Ya Hat). I’ve recently made more feather-featured earrings, and changed the portfolio name from Birdies to “Birds of a Feather” – you can see my latest on the page of that name.

You can still buy some of my earlier pieces, named for the cheerful birds they share a colour palette with, such as Mountain Bluebird and Scarlet Finch.

Icons and feathers

As well as the jewellery “flower gardens” I love creating, it’s an enjoyable challenge to make jewellery to fit a theme. Below are the pieces I made for two recent exhibitions, “Fine Feathers” and “NZ Icons“.

Each month, Kāpiti Gallery in Raumati Beach has a new exhibition, and while some are more focused on, for example, pastel painting or pottery and sculpture, there’s often an exhibition theme for general art and craft work. Kāpiti Gallery is the showcase for Kāpiti Arts and Crafts Society; I belong to the Jewellery Group and the Spinning, Weaving & Knitting Group.

For the Jewellery Group’s exhibition earlier in 2022, I created almost 100 new items; a few are pictured below.

Earring options: clip-ons & coloured hooks

Women often admire my “flower garden” of pretty earrings but tell me they’ve never had their ears pierced – so I’ve begun making earrings for them. I’ve also got some gorgeous coloured hooks to match to the beads I’m using; they look great!

In the past week I’ve made several pairs of earrings with the same beads but as clip-ons as well as on hooks and posts, some with matching bracelets. I’m looking forward to promoting these at the Saturday market, and in the Jewellery Group exhibition at Kapiti Gallery later this month.

Strawberries, Daisies, Kiwi- and Dragonfruit

I’ve been so busy this week, making heaps more “Fruit Salad” bracelets and earrings, as well as a few flowery ones – some with gorgeous coloured earring hooks! I’ve begun a range I’m calling “Berry Mocktails” because they’re fruit-themed bracelets for little kids.

Here are a few pics; I’ll add more to my page soon!

Christmas 🎅 jewellery

Look at my new jewellery for Christmas 2021. There are flowers, leaves, boho style, and baby Santa styles!

As usual, I’ve named some of the new jewellery after flowers, such as Amaryllis ‘Clown’, Cymbidium ‘Red Lip’, and Hellebore ‘Red Lady’.

See them – and more – on my Festive and Yuletide page, and listings in my online shop bronz.beads.

Boho Poppy “Himalayan Blue”

Brand new in my Boho range, this bracelet and earrings set is named for the unusual “Himalayan Blue” poppy – noted for its astonishing blue flowers (read more at gardenia.net).

Flower Garden of big girls’ beads!

I’ve uploaded 10 more pairs of earrings for you to look out, as well as updating each of the portfolios I’ve added to recently.

At present I’m focussing on big, bountiful, #plussize floral creations—because big girls need big beads!—but you’ll find just the thing to suit your style, or buy as a gift, in bronzbeads’ varied jewellery portfolios.
