One of my all-time favorite places to shop is the Internet. Not only can you find thousands if not millions of stores with the item you want but you can also find those products cheaply. Not to say cheaply made - but cheap in price. One website I found online recently while shopping for my friend had a ton of beaded jewelry designs. Everything from bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and pendants to actual beaded products like anklets, birthstones, bookmarks and purse charms. This is a really neat thing to look into. If I had to guess it I would say that every single person on earth could probably find at least one item that goes with their style. It doesn't matter if you like Asian flare, antique, vintage, Victorian, religious or anything else.
You can even find wildly colored products with bright colorings for all of you "loud" people! You know who you are, don't fight it! This particular website featured all of its products as designed by one single designer. So these aren't like every other mass produced piece of jewelry out there. You can even find themed pieces for a wedding such as the Something Blue Wedding Sapphire Silver Heart Anklet which obviously fits well with your "something blue" theme. As mentioned above these are all priced quite nicely. So far, just by looking at the sites I can see right away that you really get your dollars worth. A lot of the items are under $150 which is extra nice - especially when you are buying a gift for someone else such as your mom or sister or even your girlfriend.
They also have men's products on these beaded jewelry sites as well. And something interesting called " My BeadLoved Button". This is actually a really cute idea after you read what it's about:
"If you own your own button, then it cannot be pushed! I have found there is always someone you encounter in life that enjoys confrontation. One day after dealing with one of these very types of individuals I decided my buttons belonged to me and they could only push them if I allowed it. Suddenly that is when the vintage button came to mind and from that thought, the creations of beautiful pendants and necklaces developed. These necklaces are created as symbol to own your own button and it helps to have a reminder at difficult moments that it is my choice to not respond. Design inspired by button pushers. How many days can you go without letting someone push your buttons?"
These are sweet little pieces that come in all sorts of colors, shapes, sizes and styles. It's the type of "button" that you can make your own - choose what suits you. If you like wearing handcrafted jewelry with your own birthstone, then get something like the Navy Topaz Shell Vintage Button Pendant. If you like stuff that is really glitzy, then look out for the Tourmaline Olive BeadArt Vintage Button Pendant. Maybe you have a style that is super unique and you like your jewelry to fit with that style, then I would suggest trying something like the Black and White Checkerboard Button Pendant. No matter your style - I'm almost positive you will find exactly what you are looking for!
