The new collection is here! Spring Greens and April Showers have arrived in my online shop, ready for you to find a lovely new piece (or two!) to freshen up your Spring wardrobe!   Celebrate the morning with delicate pale blue dew drops, explore the forest's dappled shade with the swirling greens of a fiddlehead fern, or turn over a new leaf with jewelry made from an antique jadeite plate - pale, milky mint green with just a hint of yellow. Whichever color you choose is sure to add a touch of Spring to your favorite outfit!As a mailing list member, this...

Spring Greens (and April Showers) are on the way...
March 25 2019

I had a glimpse of Spring and sunny days recently - and took advantage of it!  I pulled my giant magnifying glass out in the sunshine and tried out some more new colors!  And I managed to make just enough of my three favorites before the rains returned to share them with you...     There are three brand new colors in this limited edition collection: A pale, milky mint green made from a broken antique jadeite plate Swirling opaque greens made from stained glass scraps And a pale transparent blue (also from stained glass scraps), similar to Water but...

Featured Shop: Elle's Niche
March 05 2019

Our newest featured shop is Elle's Niche in Charles Town, West Virginia - a darling boutique that just picked up Sundrop Jewelry this year.  I'm super excited to have Sundrop Jewelry join them!   Why did you start your shop? I started my shop out of a love of creating and wanting to be able to showcase others like me. It has always been a dream of mine and currently we have over 20 artisans in the store. There are some that believe that art is something that you hang on a wall or place on a pedestal or show in a gallery. While that...

The "Rainy Season" has arrived - in new colors!
March 01 2019

Drumroll, please.... The new limited edition colors have arrived! Milky swirls, subtle streaks, and moody hues are signature elements of this enticing trio.   From a single strip of scrap stained glass three fairly distinct color variations emerged, and I'm naming them accordingly (because giving things names makes them more official, right?)...This is the "Rainy Season" series, with three colors to choose from: "Partly Cloudy"  (lower right) with sky blue and white swirls "Overcast" (center) with hazy very pale blue and pale purple "Stormy Day" (upper left) dominated by purple streaks in milky pale blue You'll find each available in...

New limited edition colors are coming soon!
February 28 2019

I've been playing around with some glass scraps that I got from a fellow artist who was de-stashing her old stained glass hobby, and I just couldn't resist sharing this one first... These drops are all from a single strip of a milky white and blue and purple streaked stained glass! Whenever I use multi-colored stained glass there ends up being a LOT more variation in the colors and patterns from one drop to the next. That certainly ended up being the case here - even though they're all made from the same strip of stained glass! Some have sky blue and...

Have You Been Waiting For The Next Sale?
February 15 2019

If you haven't been to my website recently you may not have noticed, but over the past month I have been quietly reducing the prices on my three most popular jewelry designs - Solaris Earrings, Demi Earrings, and Demi Pendants. A number of factors went into this decision, but one of the biggest things is I didn't want anyone to have to wait for a sale to buy a piece you've fallen in love with.  (However, this does mean that I will be having fewer sales in the future, and the discounts won't be as large.) While I will probably not be...

Back in stock - recycled earrings!
January 31 2019

Unlike much of the country (I hope you're staying warm!), I've had some sunny days recently.  So I've been busy using that sunshine to make more delightful, sparkling teardrop jewelry from a certain well-known glass bottle... Guess which color is now back in stock?   This weather turned out to be a really good thing, as I had entirely run out of these glass teardrops I make from Coca-Cola bottles!  This pale green often appears clear, and tends to pick up surrounding colors, so it can go with absolutely anything! Grab yours in my online shop here: http://sundropjewelry.com/pages/coca-cola-recycled-1   Shop Now...

EmilyReviews Sundrop Jewelry (and a giveaway!)
December 07 2018

Amber of EmilyReviews.com just wrote the most wonderful review of her new Sundrop Jewelry! "Artist Tawny Reynolds is a true master of her craft. She melts down glass bottles to create the gorgeous pieces offered at Sundrop Jewelry. Using a three foot magnifying glass, she focuses the sunlight on glass bottles to melt into the droplets used in her jewelry and then wraps them in recycled sterling silver wire. No two pieces are exactly the same, though she does a wonderful job matching droplets for earring sets... While I don’t wear a lot of necklaces (I have an overzealous three year old...

Find your spark
November 26 2018

I spent all weekend doing a huge fair, which meant I was too busy to do anything special for you online.   (Sorry!)  I had a great time, though - it was awesome to see all of you who stopped by my booth at the Indie Holiday Emporium this year!  But because so many of you can't come see me in person, I wanted to be sure to share something special with you too!So, today only I'm offering 30% off my new (and super-popular) Inner Spark Pendant! Gentle curves of asymmetric silver frame a single vibrant teardrop of sun-melted glass.  Throw...

Delightful designs from the Doodles Collection
November 15 2018

Tell me, do you like to doodle?  I certainly do!  Sometimes my doodles are actual sketches of new jewelry ideas, but sometimes I just go ahead and "doodle" in the actual silver and glass teardrops - and that is how this whole collection got started... My new Doodles Collection is full of delightful designs - from simple geometric circles to fanciful loops and curves. Add a touch of whimsy to your holiday style this year - hop over to my shop now and nab a piece (or two!) from the Doodles Collection in time for Thanksgiving! Shop Now >> US...

From bottle to earrings
November 07 2018

This week has been full of gorgeous, sunny, cloud-free skies - which means it's the perfect time to start stocking up on popular colors before the holiday rush!  I thought you might like to get a few peeks behind the scenes at how Sundrop Jewelry is made, from bottle to earrings! I start with an empty bottle (Skyy Vodka is today's color - we won't go into how it got emptied, haha!), and use glass cutting tools to slice off the top and bottom, and cut the sides of the bottle into long skinny strips. And here is why the weather matters...  On...

Custom-made for you...
October 29 2018

Nearly half of the pieces I sell at fairs are either one-of-a-kind color combinations I have on display, or custom requests for this design but in another color. With so many colors to choose from there are just too many variations possible to have them all on display at once. (And I already have people saying they get paralysis of choice!) But everyone has their own favorite colors, right? So, I always bring my entire stock of sun-melted glass teardrops. And I try to tell everyone that if they see a design they love but want a different color, I can...

Preventing paralysis of choice - making room for the new
October 15 2018

I love trying new colors of glass and coming up with new designs! But the problem with doing that is an exponentially-exploding number of variations. Since I have twelve standard colors, adding just one new design means a dozen more pieces to choose amongst! And when I develop a whole new collection… well, let’s just say that there’s a name for 12 dozen, and that’s what lands in my shop! Paralysis of choice is real. And because of that, I have to periodically retire colors and designs so it doesn’t become (even more) overwhelming for you. Like right now - I’ve been busily...

Eco-friendly bridal jewelry: lightweight statement earrings you will wear again and again
October 08 2018

If you're anything like me, most big and bold earrings are not your friend - and not for style reasons. My ears simply can't take the weight all day! That's why I'm always conscious of weight when I make Sundrop Jewelry earrings. Being made of glass, you might think they would be heavy, but they're not. In fact, most of my earrings are so lightweight you can barely tell you're wearing them - even these statement earrings, featured in last month's Belle Armoire magazine! Designed as an eco-friendly bridal jewelry set, these long, flowing statement earrings and matching neck ring were inspired by trailing...

Lightweight earrings are a blessing...
October 03 2018

Lightweight earrings are both a blessing and a curse. A blessing... I don't know about you, but my ears just cannot take the weight of heavy earrings.  By afternoon, the headache has begun.   You might hear "glass earrings" and think, "Oh, those must be so heavy!" But sundrops are lightweight - surprisingly so!  I make sure that all the earrings I design are something that I myself am comfortable wearing all day long, day after day - like these Duet Earrings! And a curse... While this is great for all-day, every-day wear, it can lead to its own problem -...

September 27 2018

Layer on the necklaces!
September 12 2018

The best thing about chokers is that they work any time!  Alone, they add an elegant touch to a casual outfit.  Or they can serve as a base for layering it on and really amping up your style!   So many possibilities!  Whether you simply throw on an extra pendant with your choker to add some on-trend style to your regular outfit... or go all out with even more layers!       Find your favorite choker necklace in my shop now, and start layering away!

New necklaces...
September 07 2018

You know how it goes, right?  You get off to a great start on a project... You get almost to the finish line...  And then something comes up and it stalls out for way too long.  (At least, I hope it's not just me!) In my newly-discovered free time (a.k.a. my daughter's school day), I've finally had a chance to sit down in my studio and finish a few new pieces that have been on my mind for ages! From diminutive chokers to stunning statement necklaces (plus a new ombre sapphire piece I've been dreaming of) I love these new necklaces!  Click here to...
