Fall Suncatchers and Jewelry From Krystal Kat's!

Do you have your pumpkins yet? I know it's hot in California still, but soon it will be chilly and we will all be thinking of apples and pumpkins and pies & family and then the holidays!

I wanted to share with you some fall things I have posted on my Krystal Kat's online shop and newly listed Lucite Flower Earrings, Pumpkin Earrings, Pinecone Earrings and other jewelry. 

First off I will start with my Fall suncatchers a beautiful golden leaf suncatcher in fall colors.

The link to more about this suncatcher is above.

How about a beautiful fall colored cross suncatcher. A fun way to decorate for fall in your car or home either with the leaf or cross.

 Here is a darling pair of Czech Glass Pumpkin Earrings so cute1

Here is a sweet pair of Lily Flower Lucite & Crystal Earrings

Another sweet pair of Lucite Lily earrings in Orange and Black with gold I also have it available in silver please check out my fall & Halloween earrings page. 

I have more earrings on my site for Fall & Halloween that are not shown here.

Pumpkin Glass Earrings are so cute with the leaf beadcaps.

The last thing I want to post is a cute bracelet for fall made with Swarovski Crystals and a cute sterling silver pumpkin charm.

I tried to put everything into a special category at my shop called Fall and Halloween Jewelry, hopefully I got everything into there, but be sure to check in other categories as well for fall and Halloween or leaf style jewelry.  

This is the link above to the Fall & Halloween category.

Here is another category called Fall Leaf

Funky Leaf Bracelets is another cateogory that you should not miss out on, not the traditional fall colors but still great fall jewelry wear for the gal who does not wear fall colors, these bracelets can also be worn in the spring or summer.

So cute skull earrings with lilac flowers and crystals, be sure to check out my black pair as well.

Well there is a small sampling of Fall and Halloween Jewelry

Have a great day! ~Kat

Lovely Lavender Lady Bracelet and Earrings & Crochet Flower Cloche & Sugar Skull Purse

What has Kat been crafting up now! gorgeous Lovely Lavender Lady Bracelet and Earrings made with Czech Glass Beads, Lucite Flowers and Swarovski Crystals!

Lavender Lady Bracelet and Earrings Set 

The earrings are made with Lucite daisy's and gold beadcaps and shell designed leverbacks with Czech beads in milky lavender and crystal violet.

This set is sold! but I will be making more soon so stay tuned. If you're interested in this set for yourself, well something similar actually because no two are exactly alike please contact me.

I have been a busy bee, stitching on my sewing machine and crocheting as well. First I made this cute Alexander Henry Handbag using Mini Calaveras fabric in black, I attached a Pearl Green Lucite Flower Rose to the flap. So cute!

And just before I made the handbag I made this adorable Crochet Flower Cloche. I am in love with it. It's made with two strands of green yarn adorned with sequence. The flower is made with both green and purple sequence adorned yarn. It's especially warm and looks very old fashioned for sure.

I found this adorable cloche design at Crochet Today's Magazine. 

Please find me and my pretties at or 

It's fall and time to start thinking about the upcoming holidays!

Vintage Look Rose Leaf Brass & Pearl Bracelet


It's so nice and cool out this evening the weather is just perfect and even a bit chilly!

I made a cute Vintage look bracelet today with Swarovski Crystal Pearls in black and cream. The top of the bracelet has a Rose and leaves brass motif and I added a studded Swarovski Crystal headpin in black in the center of the rose and wire wrapped the brass rose motif into a brass openwork floral motif. After I got all that secured I beaded the beads onto a strand of beading wire adding gold spacers throughout.

I made a pair of matching earrings to go with it. 

Yesterday I made a big fluffy crocheted flower for a cloche I am making.

I really like the way the flower turned out although it looks much prettier in person. It will be so cute when I get it onto the cloche. 

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!
