Announcement   Fine Judaica jewelry! Jewish Jewelry in Sterling Silver! Gemstones and sterling silver Jewelry. My fine jewelry and wire wrapped gemstones are original handcrafted quality items.



I love gemstones, silver and gold! I want something original, something personal, something I know that I won't find someone else wearing. I like jewelry that has some weight...something that feels real! That's why I just can't bring myself to use plastic or acrylic, so you won't find any of that in my shop. I am an individual, and my jewelry is too.
I use high quality beading materials. I want your jewelry to last a long, long time.


See something you like my shop? Need bracelet or earrings to match? Or maybe a necklace to match? Just convo me.

I love doing custom orders. Need a special necklace or earrings to match that certain dress for that special occasion? Just ask. I have gemstones and crystals in every color imaginable.

I am a proud member of the Etsychai team!!

I am now making Jewelry with 14K gold findings, vermeil and gold filled. I do not use gold plated, because it just isn't a quality long lasting product. I am posting here some information for those of you who would like to understand the terminology of the different gold findings in my shop.

GOLD FILLED:
Gold-filled items are 50 to 100,000 times thicker than regular gold plating, and 17 to 25,000 times thicker than heavy gold electroplate
Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors. As a matter of fact, anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry. Gold filled jewelry is an economical alternative to solid gold!
Government Regulation: Gold filled items are regulated by the government. These items are therefore so much better then gold plated which has no regulations at all. Gold filled jewelry is made from solid gold and filled with other alloys such as rhodium (a member of the platinum family), brass, and sterling silver. Gold filled wears, looks and lasts like solid gold because its outer surface IS solid gold. Everything you can see and touch is pure gold. In the jewelry industry the quantity of gold must be at least 1/20th by weight of the total product.
Lifetime Products: Gold-Filled items are generally considered lifetime products, and the gold layer will not wear off, as it will in electroplated products. Gold filled jewelry is often called the wave of the future because it offers all the same characteristics as solid gold such as strength, durability and beauty….but at a fraction of the cost!


VERMEIL
Vermeil is essentially .925 sterling silver jewelry layered with gold. Standard plating is 2 millionths of an inch of gold over the base metal, as compared to vermeils 100 millionths of an inch over sterling silver. The result is long life gold jewelry with the exact same shine and richness of real 14 karat gold that won't wear down as regular plated gold jewelry does.

To care for your gold vermeil jewelry, never machine polish or use any chemicals such as silver or gold cleaner. A simple polishing cloth is all you need to keep your jewelry looking beautiful!



NEW!! I just started a new shop! I have been making kangaroo leather dog leashes that are just beautiful with their lampwork beads! My father-in-law, Lucien, in Paris, France, has been helping me and he does a great job1 So go ahead....have a peek!

About

From Age of Two...

Whenever I was sick as a child, my mom would get me some kind of artsy crafty thing to do on the couch while I recuperated. Oooh.. how I LOVED the tiny glass beads that came in real glass tubes with a little cork! I loved painting by number, and making pot holders with loops! I even did knitting and pom poms and everything I could find to create somthing. I remember going to the craft store and spending hours looking at the little tiny paper flowers, and pipe cleaners and bump chenille! So many ideas would come to mind!

Creativity just ooozes out of me! I can't contain it! In addition to art, I also write music and perform with my husband. That's fun too!

    I have been making jewelry and doing art for as long as I can remember. My biggest dilemma as a child was when someone would ask me what my favorite color was.... I didn't have one! I like real crystal, gold, silver, gemstones!

Thank you for shopping at Beads of Paradise!

Welcome and enjoy browsing!

I LOVE gemstones! So many colors in natural stones! You will find many different items made with all kinds of gemstones - and all combined in a way to show their natural beauty! I also love "SPARKLY" and found that a little Swarovski crystal adds that little bling! It has been said that Swarovski crystal was invented by a man who couldn't afford diamonds for his wife; I have to agree they are the next best thing.

The beads of all necklaces and bracelets are strung on a high quality beading wire for flexibility and strength with sterling silver or gold filled beads.
