The Week In Review - Baked Beads

Given the current economic climate and, well, the regular old climate, we thought we would try to lift your spirits. Something colorful and bright. Something with sparkle, but not too flashy. Something that won't break the bank. Hmmm ... Ah! of course: Baked Beads jewelry. Newly arrived, great for everyday wear and holiday parties, this versatile jewelry comes in colors concocted to brighten our days.

One of our favorite pieces is Baked Beads's N316 necklace. The pendant is a large, faceted glass teardrop available in topaz, ruby (shown), aqua, or smokey, set in Sterling silver plate. Adjusting the 16"–18" chains might just be the best part ... until you see the price. The layered chain look may be oh-so-fashionable this season, but this necklace is only $18. That's right, eighteen dollars. Stylish thrift is the new fashionable!

We also love Baked Beads's N263 necklace with it's larger rectangular pendant (twice the size of the teardrop) available in purple (shown), olive, topaz, and grey. This polished resin gem is smoothly rounded with curved corners. Also set in Sterling silver plate with a 16"–18" adjustable double chain, this fashionable necklace is only – wait for it – $20. We love the idea of matching these popping bright colors with other mood-elevating accessories, like colorful tights, a scarf, or fingerless gloves.

For an elegant touch, try pairing one of these necklaces with an equally colorful earring. Baked Beads's E312 earrings are glamorous when paired with a complimentary necklace, yet are simple and dainty enough to be worn every day. A faceted glass teardrop is accompanied by a tiny matching glass bead just above and set in Sterling silver plate. Available in aqua, topaz (shown), smokey, and ruby, there's a color for everyone on your shopping list. What girl wouldn't love to get a piece of jewelry to show off for the holidays?

And if these pieces don't satisfy your holiday shopping needs, take a peek at our newly updated Gift Section. We just made your online shopping a little easier: you can now shop gifts Under $25, Under $50, and Under $100. We just know you'll find something for the special girls on your shopping list ( ... and maybe even something for yourself).
