Featured Designer: Judith Glassman Jewelry Designs

Judith Glassman Jewellry Designs

Judith Glassman Jewelry Designs is owned and operated by Judith Glassman, who is a wonderfully sweet and dynamic woman! She has been creating beautifully unique necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and custom designs since the 1960’s. It was love at first creation for her and she has continued to expanded her repertoire over the years, incorporating Swarovski Crystals, semi-precious stones, Lucite, vintage glass and buttons into her one-of-a-kind jewelry designs.

Judith Glassman About Us Page

Among Judith’s talents, she has written many books that crafters and jewelry makers have found to be very insightful. She was receiving so many questions about where she found her supplies, that it inspired her to write her first book entitled New York Guide to Craft Supplies, for Workman Publishing, followed by the New New York Guide to Craft Supplies. Then publishers were asking her to create crafts books, which lead to The National Guide to Craft SuppliesStep by Step Beadcraft, and The Sweater Book. She also found time to write craft articles for The New York Times and New York magazine, as well as designing sweaters for the Good Housekeeping Needlecraft Institute.

She went on to write non-fiction books and articles on many subjects ranging from music, cancer survivors, and computer technology. The need to create jewelry exploded again in 2001. One winter morning a cold necklace led her to add fiber as a jewelry material. For years she sold to private customers and as fate would have it, jewelry became a true business in 2015, when she made the leap to create her own website. Below are just a few representation of her jewelry, but please visit her website to see all of her designs, and hes’s always more than happy to create a custom design just for you!

Gorgeous Necklaces Seek Lovely Necks

“Which piece of clothing do you choose first when you get dressed? I choose a necklace. It’s Act I, Scene I in the Judith Theater. It’s the dramatic moment when the star sweeps on the stage, the focus of attention. The necklace sets the mood, the emotional tone. Then I choose my clothes.”

Swarovski Crystal Necklace Design by Judith Glassman

This beautiful Swarovski Crystal Necklace Features the Faceted Round Disc Pendant

Lovely Lilac

The gorgeous purple and pink hues of the Swarovski effect called Crystal Lilac Shadow, infuse a dynamic color palette to this elegant necklace design that is further entranced by the lighter and darker shades of Crystal Silver Night.

“Emotionally complex. The muted lilac is as soft as a velvet glove, controlling the hard-edge glitter of the Crystal Silver Night. Breathtaking.”

Swarovski Crystal Spike Necklace

This Striking Handmade Necklace Features Swarovski Crystal Spike Beads and Pendants

Jean-Paul Gaultier Spike

Spike beads and jewelry have become very popular over the years, and this exclusive necklace design expresses more of a fancy edgy style, while still being very graceful and refined.

Designed by Jean Paul Gaultier for Swarovski, the Spike and Double Spike are edgy and forceful. Wear this necklace when you’re facing disagreement from powerful opponents. Its angles intensify your tenacity and  unwavering determination. It inspires you with persuasive win-win concepts.  Go for it!

Earrings

Earrings are the jewelry pieces most intimate with your face. They light up your eyes and your skin with their sparkle. You choose their length and shape to complement the shape of your face. If your dress or blouse or sweater are full of color and pattern you may decide not to wear a necklace and put on a pair of glamorous earrings instead.

Swarovski Crystal hoop beaded Earrings

These Beaded Hoop Earrlings Feature Swarovski Bicones in Crystal Rose Gold 2X

Golden Hoops

Hoop Earrings are always a stylish look and these beaded Swarovski Crystal hoops will add a splash of glam to your attire. The Rose Gold plating is especially on trend, and its soft metallic hues compliment all types of skin tones, and can be worn during every season.

“If you like hoop earrings, give this variation a try. These hoops are written in the soft glitter of rose gold; your ears and eyes will thank you.”

Swarovski Crystal Dangle Earrings

Beautiful Blue Dangle Earrings Featuring Aquamarine Swarovski Crystals

Swarovski on Chain in Blue

These dainty, elegant pair of Swarovski Crystal earrings highlight the multifaceted Rondelle bead that captures and reflects the light exquisitely. The popular Aquamarine color is a glorious pastel azure-like hue that is quite eye-catching. This three tiered crystal and chain style is beautiful as well as multi functional, looking lovely for special occasions or every-day wear.

The only reaction possible to these magically blue earrings is love at first sight. Bestsellers.”

What’s the Best Thing About Bracelets?

Simple. Like rings, you can see them. You’re eating or texting or walking or driving. Your bracelet catches your eye. You love it and it makes you smile.

This Colorful Bracelet Stands Out with Cloisonne Disc’s and Swarovski Crystal Beads

A Garden on Your Wrist

This bracelet just makes me happy! The wonderful interplay of multiple colors, intricate patterns and a chunky, yet whimsical style, makes me think of a field of flowers on a bright and sunny day. I just want to wrap by wrist around it and become lost in a daydream!

Top quality cloisonne, fine detail, vivid colors. There are only a few of these left. I haven’t found any cloisonne beads that I like as much but stay tuned. I keep looking and have confidence. Hmmm…maybe some delicate filigree with dazzling crystal.”

This Graceful Bracelet Design Integrates Kunzite, Ruby, Rock Crystal, and Seed Pearls

Victorian with Muscle

This alluring bracelet design blends both delicate natural crystals seamlessly with larger asymmetrical stones, for a truly unique expression of beauty.

Most of the ingredients in this bracelet are well-mannered, discreet, old-fashioned. Then there are those kunzite nuggets. Delicate pale pink, to be sure. Irresistibly iridescent. But bigger, irregular shapes. Internal sheets at different depths shimmer when you move your wrist. Powerful. Clearly the leaders of the pack.

If you see something you like or if one of the pieces gives you an idea for something a little different, a little special, a little “you” – please drop Judith a line and she is happy to make your design come true!

A Useful & Sparkling DIY Customized Gift Inspiration!

When dreams come true, it’s fun to celebrate with sparkles & smiles!

Recently my friend graduated culinary school and she now has the wonderful opportunity to take her skills to the gorgeous wonders of Spain! She’ll be living there for a few months, training under a 5 star chef. With incredible hard work and determination, her dreams are really and truly, coming to fruition. I couldn’t be happier for her!

Fiesta

She threw a fabulous tapas themed fiesta to celebrate and I wanted to give her something fun, special and sparkly (of course) to commemorate her BIG accomplishment! Here’s what I made her….

How_to_glue_crystals_to_clothing_instructions_4

A customized sparkling apron featuring Swarovski Crystal Rhinestone Flatbacks!

I found a colorful apron from World Market. I just swoon over everything in that darn store, so I had to go in with a mission and not stray, because if I did, I would have been tempted to take home one of everything. Mission successfully completed!

I imagine aprons can take a beating with all that is going on in the kitchen and I wanted to be sure the Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks would stay secure and last a very long time. In order to do this, I glued each crystal using E6000 glue.

Swarovski_Crystal_2088_Flatback_rhinestone_crystals_wholesale

I used the Swarovski Crystal 2088-12ss (~3mm) Clear Crystal Flatbacks

Crystal_Katana

I also used my handy-dandy Flatback Rhinestone tool, the Crystal Katana! This helps to pick up the stones, place them exactly where I want them and secure them in place. I couldn’t do this project with out it! That’s GOLD Jerry… GOLD! (haha…if you’re a long-time Seinfeld fan like myself, you’ll appreciate that reference 😉

How to glue crystals to clothing instructions 1

I arranged the Swarovski Crystals in little flower formations, with different quantities in each floret, randomly on the belt of the apron. I wanted to compliment the flower pattern on the apron, as well as accentuating hints of sparkle.

How_to_glue_crystals_to_clothing_instructions_2

It’s simple and sweet, and complimented her style beautifully!

Thankfully, she Loved it! She put it on and wore it around, showing all her friends, which warmed my heart & was very sweet of her!

If you’re thinking of a little gift for someone in your life, keep in mind that it doesn’t need to be much, but it’s always much more appreciated when you add a personal touch. When you put a little extra time and effort into making something handmade from your heart, it demonstrates how much you care, which is touching in and of itself.

2 DIY Tips You Need to Know When Embellishing Your Winter Hat with Swarovski Crystals!

free-swarovski-crystal-fashion-design-winter-cap-crystalized

Free DIY Design on Embellishing Your Winter Hat with Swarovski Crystals 

For those of you enjoy winter outdoor adventures, this cozy Après Ski hat DIY design inspiration is chic as well as warm. Simply glue or sew Swarovski Crystal Pearls and Flat Back Hotfix Rhinestones around the turn-up, and you’ll sparkle on the slopes!

It doesn’t matter whether you ski (or snowboard) like an Olympian, flop around like a snow bunny, or stick strictly to “meet me by the fire” for fun social encounters, you’ll still need to defrost with cozy knits that are chic and practical.

Winter pom-pom hats are very popular these days to keep your head warm and cozy. It’s a whole lot more fun to wear things that have your own personalized style infused in them. Put your fashion stamp on your winter hat by sprinkling it with Swarovski Crystals to stand out from the crowd.

free-diy-design-swarovski-crystal-fashion-design-winter-cap-crystalized

This DIY fashion design is easy as pie to make…easier than making pie, really. Swarovski makes Flatback Crystals that have glue that has been pre-applied to the back for easy application. These Flatback Crystals are called Hot Fix Stones. Simply create a design by placing the Hot Fix Crystals where you want them and apply your heated Bejeweler Pro Hot Fix Tool directly on top of the stones for a minute. Simple as that!

2 Handy Application Tips: 

1. Don’t Get Stuck Doing This – Place a piece of cardboard underneath the the portion of the fabric where the Crystals will be glued to. This way you don’t glue both sides of the hat together 🙂

2.  Don’t Ruin Your Fabric – The Bejewler Pro Hot Fix Tool has different interchangeable size tips for the various size Flatbacks. Use a one size smaller tip than the Flatback Stone itself, this way you won’t burn the edges of your fabric. (you probably won’t burn the fabric, but I always like to let people know about this encase they are using the Bejewler Pro Hot Fix tool on nice or sensitive fabric such as a wedding dress).

Hey Chicago Whaddya Say, the Cubs Are Gonna Win Today! Go Cubs Go!

9626523-mlb-nlcs-los-angeles-dodgers-chicago-cubs-1-850x560

What an exciting World Series baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians! WOW! I’ve never seen a more fun, nail-biter of a game! Thankfully our beloved Cubbies FINALLY after 108 years, became champions once again!

Although I’m from Arizona, my hubby Mike has been a die-hard Cubbies fan for his whole life. So if my Hubby’s a Cubbie, I’m a Cubbie 🙂

His dreams came true when his brother, who lives in Chicago, called him up last week and said, I have tickets to the World Series games 4 & 5, do you wanna go? Well…it took 0.2 seconds for him to say YES!!!

I was so excited for him! He was going to be staying at his brother & sister-in-law’s house and I thought, how fun would it be to bling out some little Cubs shirts for his 18 month old niece! I quickly got to work and here’s what I made…P.S. I love them so much!

diy-instructions-on-how-to-glue-swarovski-crystals-to-shirt

I printed out the Cubs logo and cut out the area that I wanted to add my Swarovski Crystals. Bling-Bling-Baby!

diy-swarovski-crystals-to-shirt-cubs-emblem

I used the Swarovski 2078-30ss Crystal Hot Fix Flat Back stones on this one, which was a perfect size for making two rows of crystals for the big C.

diy-swarovski-crystal-cubs-shirt-instructions

After placing the crystals in the C, I started heating up my iron. I used a pieces of thin parchment-like paper and softly laid it on top of the stones. Then I pressed the iron down on the C. I pressed hard and held it there for several minutes. I kept doing this process for several more minutes. I checked the stones one by one, to make sure they were secure and if I found a loose one, I used the Bejeweler Pro Hot Fix Tool to secure it in place.

diy-swarovski-crystal-flat-backs-to-shirt-for-cubs

So CUTE! I love how the clear crystals match the clear crystal buttons on this little sweater.

I didn’t stop there….my next one was an iconic picture with much more detail. Drum roll please….

holy-cow-sparkling-shirt-diy-cubs

Well… Holy Cow, it’s Harry Caray!

What a fun guy he was and it was fun to pay tribute to him and his iconic over-sized glasses! I used the 2078-12ss Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks for the details of his eyes, smile chin and hair and the rest I used the 2078-30ss Swarovski Crystal Hot Fix Flatback Rhinestones. These are the sizes that I liked best, but Swarovski offers a large variety of sizes,colors and styles for all of your crystal projects. Plus, you can’t beat our wholesale prices on all your favorite Swarovski Crystals!

diy-swarovski-crystals-to-shirt-holy-cow-cubs

I’m not done yet! Third times a charm, right?! We needed all the luck we could get! I had one more pink T-shirt I wanted to bling out, so I went with a classic Cubs logo for the last one and I made an extra girly, extra sparkly one!

diy-blinged-out-cubs-shirt

Go Cubs Go!

I used the same C cut out as the first one, but this time I used the Swarovski 2078-30ss Crystal AB Hot Fix Flat Back Rhinestones for the extra brilliance. It shines pinks, blues and yellow sparkles! I used the 2078-16ss Swarovski Crystal AB Hot Fix Flat Back Rhinestones for the UBS.

I had so much fun making these sparkling Swarovski Crystal shirts for our sweet little niece, everyone loved how they turned out and I’m sure she will be wearing one of them for the victory parade today!

Yay Cubbies!
