It's a Terrific Tuesday featuring Maria Bella Jewelry

I am in gem heaven between these two shops, Maria Bella Jewelry and Tiger Bead Store. They are both owned by Mary Ann from sunny California. Mary Ann makes lovely contemporary jewelry with gemstones, sterling silver, brass, and pewter. Her style to me is timeless and classic. While browsing her Etsy shop, I came across beautifully wire wrapped gemstone jewelry. We have similar tastes as she also likes to use birds, flowers, and nature items in her designs.

When you are an avid beader of six plus years, you start accumulating beads, baubles, and everything in between. Mary Ann likes to find good deals on jewelry making supplies and offers them to the Etsy world in her shop, Tiger Bead Store. I'm loving the cabochons she offers here!

These are some of my favorites...

Hummingbirds Earrings Sterling Silver, Glass, Pewter
Beautifully simple and pretty!

Petals (Silver Turkish Blue Chalcedony)
This is one of my favorite gemstones.

Woman with Flowers Necklace
I like the vintage feel of this pendant. It's an illustration from Mucha named Fruits and Flowers from 1897.

Get to know Maria Bella Jewelry a little better by visiting her Etsy shop  and her blog. Don't forget to "like" her Facebook page too!

Have a great week!

  1. Thank you for this post and the info on Maria Bella, she does make beautiful jewelry. I also apreciate the heads up about the sister shop, Tiger Beads. As a fellow beader/jewelry designer, I am always on the lookout for new bead outlets and being able to help a fellow Esty shop is great!

    Blessings and positive energy
