Designs In Blue Light

Everyone LOVES Etsy! .... and one of my favorite shops is Designs In Blue Light. The first time I stumbled upon this shop, I was looking for a little bauble to gift to myself.... as usual... and I fell in love with Jennifer MacNeil's beautiful mix of handmade and vintage jewelry ..... And Jennifer is a real designer's designer, she has a wonderful
facebook fan page, where she shares the spotlight with other etsy designers... has great contest and giveaways, as well as information and design tips.

Let's dedicate this blog to Jennifer's uncanny eye for beautiful vintage jewelry. Enjoy!

This vintage parure is in immaculate condition and comes in its original box, sweetly priced at $95 Buy

The set includes a cuff bracelet, screwback earrings, and a pendant/brooch on a 16" silver tone chain. It's a rare Bugbee and Niles set, dating back to the later 1930s / early 1940s. Beautiful! God bless Jennifer MacNeil's tasteful eye.

Vintage, signed, 1", blue Weiss earrings, are perfectly suitable for my Great Aunt, for me, or my trendy little cousin. This design is timeless, and a steal at $39 Buy

And when I get my invitation to the Oscar's I'll be wearing this... drooling..... this genuine Eisenberg Ice Choker. It measures 15" with an adjustable "J" hook closure. The outer strands are clear, prong set rhinestones, and the two inner strands are seed pearls. Gorgeous!
$349 Buy

Designs in Blue Light also offers free shipping on many items, a layaway option and will consider offers on the vintage pieces.
