About BeauxBlues

Sales 303
On Etsy since 2013

Modern styles, simple designs, affordable prices.

You've heard this story many times, but it's true: It started with my first visit to a bead shop. I was mesmerized by all the shiny objects. The necklace in the photo is the 1st thing I ever made at a workshop at that bead shop, Sassy Bead in Toronto. The bead shop is no longer in business, but I'm still carrying on. My style has changed over the years, but I've always loved metal, chain and pearls. It gives me a lot of joy to make jewellery and to build my shop on Etsy.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

To help you determine the correct size for bracelets, use the general rule of thumb of ordering the size you would normally wear in a shirt or sweater.

Cleaning your silver jewellery

Here's a great way to bring your jewellery back to it's original sparkle and brightness:
1) Place a piece of foil in a small pan or tray.
2) Place your jewellery on top of the foil with as much of the metal touching the foil as possible.
3) Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda over the jewellery.
4) Pour boiling water over top.
5) Let sit until it stops bubbling and cools.
6) Rinse well and wipe dry.
Voila! Enjoy your shiny, brand-new-looking jewellery.

Cleaning your small pieces of silver jewellery

For smaller pieces, like earrings, massage a generous dab of toothpaste onto the silver. Rinse thoroughly. It's a good idea to keep an old toothbrush to help remove bits of toothpaste.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Every piece from my shop will come with a ribbon-tied, Beaux Blues gift box ready to give as unique gift.

Silver, Sterling Silver, Silver Plated: What’s the difference?

Silver consists of 99.9% pure silver. It is a very soft metal and is not usually used to make shaped items like jewellery. Pure silver does not tarnish.

Sterling Silver is an alloy (92.5% pure silver/7.5% copper or other metal). The copper provides hardness and durability required to create shapes, like jewellery. Sterling silver, will tarnish with air exposure and it is often stamped with 925 in a discrete location.

Silver Plating is a process of bonding a thin layer of silver to a base metal. If my listing says 'silver', it is silver-plated. The word “sterling” should never be used to describe silver plating. So, the expression, “sterling-silver plated” is incorrect terminology and may be deceptive to the buyer.
