Gotta Have Bling Special #3

Back to Business Bash!
Special #3

Back again??  YEP, it's me!  With another awesome STEAL!  For the next three days, this awesome Black and White Swirls bracelet (made of Sterling Silver, Swarovski crystals and Handmade glass beads) is just $48.00!  I got a special price on the lampwork beads and there's minimal sterling and Swarovski crystals, so it keeps the price VERY LOW!  Grab it while you can because I will not replicate this one, so once it is GONE it is GONE!  You won't find another one cheaper than this one either at Gotta Have Bling, that's almsot pocket change! HAHA!  Well, maybe not exactly pocket change, but it is by far the least expensive I have shared ever!

This one ranges in size from 7 1/2" to 8" but can be adjusted during the paypal process.  Just indicate in the drop down boxes!  Please email me prior to purchase if desired or comment on this post any questions and I will reply as soon as I can! 

Special #3 is
a jaw-dropping
(Shipping is also just $2.00 in the USA!
I gotta pay for shipping supplies, you know!!)

After June 6th, this one will be $60.00
and shipping will be $3.50 USA, elsewhere $6.00
Please ignore the loose wire in photograph,
this isn't crimped off until final size is established!

Gotta Have Bling Special #2

Back to Business Bash!
Special #2

Similar to the BLOG CANDY I am giving away, here's a gorgeous KeyBling featuring some soft sea-spray blue and ice-white glass beads!  CHUNKY Sterling Silver beads, gorgeous azore Swarovski crystals and some swirls and dots, too!  Lampwork beads by Krissy Beads.  This one is so sweet and perfect for a galpal or mother-in-law that you admire!  In case you haven't heard.... the reason why I love to give KeyBlings as gifts is because every time the recipient uses their keys, they think of the gift-giver! 

I just gave two of my children's teachers KeyBlings for thank you gifts at the end of the school year and they both just loved them!  They sparkle when they dangle in the ignition and when dripping out of their purse-pockets and they are fun to play with and admire when standing in line at the post office!  PLUS you don't need to worry about special sizing, like a bracelet!  I LOVE ME A GIFTY-KEYBLING! haha! 

(OH, in case you are wondering, YES, these are durable! I have dropped my keybling on marble floors at the dentist office, paved parking lots and even my cement driveway and not ONE of my beads chipped!  So, you can feel safe knowing you are purchasing a keybling that will last quite a while!)

Special #2
Seaspray with Ice KeyBling
Just $21.50!!
That's over 20% OFF and pretty much near my cost, actually...
(Shipping is also just $2.00 in the USA!
I gotta pay for shipping supplies, you know!)

After June 6th, this will be back to it's normal $27.00 price
and shipping will be $3.50 USA or $6.00 elsewhere

Gotta Have Bling SPECIAL #1

Back to Business Bash!
Special #1

The first special for today is this beautiful Turquoise and Silver Tiles lampwork bracelet! Made of ALL Sterling Silver, Genuine Swarovski Crystals and handmade lampwork beads by my personal lampworking friends!  You know I only will put my name on TOP quality beads and findings and that are durable to wear daily!  You can change the clasp to a bar/toggle type of clasp, but it will affect the price a small bit, about $4.00....

I originally had planned to use these beads for my son's High School graduation party-outfit, but then didn't have time to put it together to wear! SNIFF!!!!!!!  I am so excited to see it come together so nicely, though! 

This will fit 7 1/4" to almost 8" at various links in the link/clasp, which is nice for those of you who gain water during the summer like me! HAHA!  If you need it larger, just indicate the size you need in the paypal info box and I will adjust prior to shipping!  Please email me anytime to ask questions prior to purchase!  I have just ONE of these right now, but can make more, there just will be a 2-3 week leadtime on those.... oh, THE PRICE????

Today's Special #1
is just a tad more than MY cost....
Just $66.00!!
(Shipping is also just $2.00 in the USA!
I gotta pay for packaging supplies, you know!)

After June 6th, this will be $78.00
and shipping will be $3.50 USA or $6.00 elsewhere
