Announcement   If you love vintage rhinestones, costume jewelry, vibrant color, and sparkle then MoonBubbles is your place! Using vintage Swarovski rhinestones, Czech rhinestones, Beads, vintage and antique jewelry findings, newer Swarovski rhinestones, wire, and often clay, I design and hand make all of my jewelry and accessories from the ground up. Everything is guaranteed to be one of a kind with the exception of a few specified items.

Everything in my shop is made by my own two hands (and sometimes I wish I had three!) :)

I was initially inspired by the great costume jewelry designers such as Juliana, Miriam Haskell, Eisenberg, and Weiss to start creating my own designs that are reminiscent of those glamor days.

From Victorian to Hollywood, I love to create it all! I especially love working with unique color combinations and creating bold, statement pieces.

I also love to work with wire and beads, crocheting and sculpting unique, one of a kind necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and full sets with sparkle and vibrance.

Another new favorite is working with clay - the possibilities are endless and I'm already well on my way to a full on love affair with the process and the end results. I'm finding that I can mix vintage flavor and modern design to get something altogether unique and entirely "me!"

If you are interested in custom work please feel free to drop me a note. Whether you're looking for bridal jewelry, bridesmaid gifts, or something unique for yourself or a loved one, I will be happy to work with you to create something personal and just right for the occasion.

Here is a link to my YouTube channel where you can see my sparklies in action! Photos don't do the crystal and glass justice - especially when there is such a brilliance and sparkling dynamic between the light and the facetes of each crystal and bead.

If you are wondering how I got my name... look no further - In the woods at night when you're beneath a canopy of branches and leaves and little speckles of moonlight shine through and dot the landscape...Well I call them moon bubbles. Since my jewelry throws sparkles and speckles of light, I thought it only fitting.

Beautiful piece, just as pictured/described! Seller is a jewel herself! Prompt delivery. Seller also offered/included some jewelry wire to use in attaching brooch to a braided necklace I am using for a special event. Thumbs up!!!

I almost never wear jewellery of any kind- this just really appealed to me, so please believe me when I say that I am delighted with this ring. I won't wear it much, but I will wear it very happily on the occasions that I choose to.

Absolutely gorgeous earrings, exactly like the picture, but even better in person. Love it! Will definitely buy from this shop again!

About

From supplies to creator...

It began with a desire to sell vintage stones, findings, and sparklies from days gone by and evolved into a passion for designing jewelry and being as vibrant as possible through my creations.

For several years I sold rhinestones and vintage glass. I enjoyed it immensely (and I still do) but I was always aching to take my inventory and create something with it.

In many cases, Etsy artists wind up selling destash items from their creative endeavors. I sort of worked backwards - I was a supplies seller and then decided to create my own bits of art from those supplies. :)

Ever since I can remember, I've loved to make things. From writing music to drawing, sculpting to photography, poetry to web design - I've loved and done it all. Now I use that creative energy and put it into the sparkly creations that I present to you here at Moonbubbles.

Up until recently, most everything I created was rhinestone and vintage flavored but I've since discovered my love for crocheting wire and glass as well as epoxy clay and other more contemporary "feel" designs.

I hope you enjoy what I have to offer. I hope to add to my store regularly and change things up often just to keep myself on my toes!

Thanks for reading :)

Designing jewelry is an absolute passion of mine. Each individual piece is one of my sparkly babies and finding my wee ones a good home is something that makes me very happy!

I am open to doing custom work for weddings, bridesmaid gifts, or for anything really - feel free to convo me to discuss what you'd like! The possibilities are pretty much endless when it comes to color and design. I would love to work with you to design something especially for you.

Also just about everything I create is one of a kind. That means that if you purchase something from my store, it will be the only one like it in the world. Pretty snazzy, huh? :)

I strive to make all of my jewelry VERY sturdy, however it is jewelry and isn't made to be handled roughly - after all, the stones are made of glass and well - glass breaks so please treat your sparkly baby with care. When it comes to costume jewelry it is not meant to be showered in or worn while swimming, etc. so please also keep that in mind.

If you have any questions about any of my items, custom stuff, or about anything at all, please feel free to convo me. I'll always do my best to reply quickly and well, I'm really friendly-like so bug me all you want! I usually work at night though so if I don't reply in the morning or afternoon it is because I'm a night owl and I slept through sunrise and beyond. :D

When you look at the photos in my listings, please take the time to click and zoom in on them and also to carefully read the entire listing. I try to provide all the necessary information there and I take very detailed photos of my items so that you can get a good idea of the quality, color, size, etc. of the items you are interested in. Just keep in mind that monitor settings may cause a slight variance in color from my camera to your computer.

I work very hard on this business but I'm a one woman show and sometimes get very, very busy. Occasionally I make mistakes (can you believe it? lol) and so I ask that if I do that you are patient and communicate with me so that we can resolve any issue and also so you can be 110 percent happy with your purchase as that is my goal. I truly want my customers to be thrilled with their entire experience with me.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
I accept paypal, credit cards (etsy checkout system) and money orders. I will also accept a check but will not ship until the check has cleared.

I prefer that payment is made at the time of purchase, however, I realize that with checks and money orders that's not the case.

If you place an order and wish to cancel it, I ask that you do so as soon as possible because sometimes ship within hours after a purchase is made. If i have already shipped your item and you wish to cancel your transaction, you will still be responsible for all shipping costs (including the cost to send the item(s) back to me).
Shipping
I do my best to ship as quickly as possible. In most cases I ship within 1-2 business days of purchase, however I've been known to take a little more time. Usually if I will take longer to ship, I will email you to let you know.

If you want something shipped quickly, please convo me and let me know so that I can flag your order and get it mailed asap.

International items are shipped first class parcel unless you wish to pay for priority or express shipping. I use etsy's shipping feature and will provide insurance if you desire it.

I will give accurate customs descriptions and will not misname your items. I will not simply say "jewelry" but rather I will say "Costume jewelry with glass stones" or "costume accessory." This helps to clear up any confusion as to the jewelry being "fine" as opposed to costume.

I will not fudge customs forms. I will report every item and its cost accurately.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be 100 percent happy with your purchase. Wait - 110 percent happy. Yeah... yeah. that's it! So if you have any problems at all, please contact me within 5 days of receipt and I'll work with you to make sure that you are satisfied.

I do ask that you view all photos and read the entire description including the size of the item (dimensions as well as fit) and such so that you are well informed before you purchase. Please ask any questions you have before purchasing as well.

I will be happy to refund or exchange your purchase if you contact me within 5 days of receiving it. Please make sure to contact me right away should you have any concerns upon receiving your item. I only ask that you do not request a refund because you did not read the description or view the photos.
Additional policies and FAQs
Here are some of the questions I am frequently asked:

Q: Do you use pre-made blanks and just glue the rhinestones in?

A: No. Some of my settings include parts for multiple stones, however, each design is my own and not prefabricated.


Q: Is your jewelry sturdily constructed?

A: Yes. I use the absolute BEST BEST BEST adhesive on the market and I personally test each piece to make sure it is durable and well put together. I do not suggest, however, that you wear any of my jewelry in the water (shower, bath, beach, pool etc.) as it is costume jewelry and best kept dry.

Q: Is every part of each piece made from vintage materials?

A: Usually but not always. Sometimes I use contemporary findings or newer stones here and there when I need them but most of the stones and findings are indeed vintage. When it comes to my clay and crocheted jewelry, more of those components are newer, however, the stones and beads are often from vintage, unused stock.

Q: Is your jewelry really handmade?

A: Yes. Every piece in my shop was made with my own two hands. From the simplest to the most complex, I design every piece and create them all by my lonesome.

I hope this helps! Again if you have any questions please drop me a line and if you're interested in custom work, I'll be happy to work with you. I love to make bridesmaids gifts and bridal items as well. Being a part of your special day rocks my socks!
