Bits n’ Beads by Gilliauna Review

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

I have several pieces of jewelry that I love from Bits n’ Beads by Gilliauna in my collection. This exquisite line of hand crafted artisan jewelry designed by Gilliauna is absolutely stunning. From necklaces, earrings, bracelets, purse charms, rosaries, accessories, religious inspired pieces and more there is sure to be something special for you or a loved one at Bits n’ Beads by Gilliauna. What makes this jewelry line so exceptional in my opinion is that the designer is obviously passionate about her craft as evidenced by the attention paid to every detail and the high quality material used to make each piece.

The jewelry at Bits n’ Beads by Gilliauna is inspired by the rich beauty of our world and features the most vivid colors and designs. In honor of the Christmas season, I selected the Chaplet Rosary Bracelet ($39) which showcases a lovely full color saint medal and gold plated cross with handmade chaplets accentuated by spider web agate and a fresh water pearl. This handmade artisan piece is even prettier up close and the toggle clasp keeps this bracelet secure while the gold plated wire is very durable. I wore this to church recently and received many compliments from my friends and even complete strangers on this unique, pretty rosary bracelet. This piece would make a wonderful gift idea for a special person especially those who appreciate beautiful religious jewelry.

I also want to mention that I wear my beautiful handmade Bits n’ Beads by Gilliauna Tear Drop Earrings (starting at $20) all the time and appreciate that these clouded glass teardrops are “hand-dipped in a clouding solution to create a satin sheen”. There are lots of gorgeous, rich colors to choose from so you are sure to find the perfect pair at Bits n’ Beads by Gilliauna. In addition to the beauty of these earrings, these are the few pairs that I can wear comfortably on a regular basis because it does not irritate my sensitive ear lobes. There is a wide variety of handmade beaded earrings and hoops available at Bits n’ Beads by Gilliauna and the pricing is very attractive for our budget.

I have always been so pleased with my jewelry from Bits n’ Beads by Gilliauna and the 2013 collection is especially beautiful if you are looking for new pieces to wear through the holidays or to give as gifts. A few of my personal favorites include the Guardian Angel Pendant Necklace ($22) and the Snowflake Bracelet ($70). You can even contact Gilliauna to request a custom designed piece of jewelry too!
