Gemstone Jewelry Sale up to 50% Off

I am having a huge gemstone jewelry sale at my shop for the next 3 days. I have also included my crocheted bracelets, peyote bracelets and earrings. You can find some real bargains here simply because I don't want to have to count it all. As the end of the year approaches I will have to do inventory and I would really like to have less to count. All gemstone jewelry in my shop is up to 50% off, giving you below my wholesale prices. This will only last 3 days so hurry over to and check out my inventory. There are still a few holidays approaching so you can save some money and give beautiful handmade gifts of gemstone jewelry!

New Jeweled Beaded Bookmarks

I got the new Ken Follet book for Christmas and decided I needed a book mark for it so I made one! Here it is and I plan to make many more. I love them. This one is made with faux pearls, Swarovski crystals and genuine pearls although the future designs will be all genuine gemstones and genuine pearls, Sterling silver and/or 14K gold filled. The pins on this one are sterling and the wire is professional grade. You will be able to see them at my website where I have gemstone jewelry and the wonderfully successful Flapper hats. Come by and order your very own jeweled beaded bookmark.

Charities for 2009

Thank you to everyone who purchased from my website in December for the donation to Toys for Tots, we raised $68.00. We also donated over $200.00 in hats to the local hat drive for children and young mothers, thanks so much! Without the sales I could not have purchased the yarn for that project.
Divella Delights has a wide variety of prices in fiber goods and jewelry, a small sample you can see her. Pictured is a plain crocheted bracelet, Turquoise and Carnelian necklace and earrings, woman's hat and scarf set, and a men's hat. I am happy to be challenged with special orders.

I have decided I would select a charity every month of 2009 and donate 10% of all sales from my website to a specific charity.
Each of the websites I have chosen are due to an event or circumstance in my life. My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at the age of 52, she is gone now so I want to begin the year with that. With Mother’s Day in May and her birthday in September I have devoted those months to the Alzheimer’s Association as well. She was a gracious lady to the end despite the ravages of that insidious disease. I lost my stepdad to heart disease when he was 47 years old. He was a wonderful man who raised me as his own little princess. My mother and stepmother both fought and survived breast cancer, my father and uncle had lung cancer. My grandmother had Emphysema and has recently died. I have 4 healthy grandchildren and I am so grateful. My daughter has just enlisted in the US Navy. Dogs Deserve Better is wonderful organization that I have volunteered for in the past. I have 2 rescue dogs and a cat. My grandmother who recently passed away had her favorite charity so to honor her I have chosen Christian Children’s Fund.
I want to thank everyone in advance for not only supporting my endeavors and all my crazy design ideas, but the charities we will be able to help together. At the end of every month when I submit the donations I will be listing the amounts in my blog. I will also be happy to e-mail a copy of the receipt to anyone who requests it. I am very excited about it and am anxious to see how much money we can raise.
I wish you all a very healthy and happy year ahead full of love and wonder.

From now until 12/20/08 Divella Delights will donate 10% of every sale
to Toys for Tots at

That means that for every gift you purchase here you will be getting 2 gifts and one will go to a child who has very little! What a great feeling it will be on Christmas day as we open our gifts to know that somewhere there is a child opening a gift who may not otherwise have one.

I have posted a lot lately about my fiber goods and have not talked about all the wonderful handmade gemstone jewelry I have...I will get to that soon and have new designs in the works!

Brand new in time for the holidays are the new Baby Flapper hats. Designed just like the Lady's Flapper Hat, these are made with Homespun and lambswool for ultimate softness and warmth. I only have one so far but am most happy to take orders for any age infant or toddler...or for Mom for that matter. I have had wonderful feedback on these hats from customers on the construction and softness of hats which are now very much in style if sales are any indication.

Flapper Hats Make Comeback

If sales are any indication the Flapper style hats are making quite a comeback. I made a couple to give as gifts and thought I would put them on line until I had to ship them off for Christmas. What happened is that I sold 8 the first week. Needless to say I have made plenty more and they are still selling. I make the scarves also for anyone who wants them and have sold a few sets this way. The scarflet is a handy little item because you can wear them up or fold them down. They don't fall of or unwrap, they just stay put! You can see new hats and scarves nearly every day on my website at and everything in my shop is 10% off until December 20th.
The fibers are a variety. I crochet the hats and knit the scarves with 2 strands of yarn for maximum warmth and it also gives a very nice shape. I use wool, wool blends, angora, alpaca, acrylic and novelty yarns in my creations. I have a lot of fun making them as you can probably tell. I make each one a little different depending on the fibers I use so there is no strict pattern I use, I just go where my mood takes me. It has come to be a lot more fun that way!
I have had a lot of wonderful feedback from my customers so I will keep making them as long as there seems to be interest. Then it will be back to the jewelry!

Winter Blues

Typically winter has been a time for muted tones and earthy colors taking all the color out of our world just when we need it most. Chase away the winter blues with one of the new Flapper style hats this year. Just because the trees are bare and the skies gray and heavy with snow is no reason to go colorless. Make a bold statement today with a Flapper Hat and Scarflet.
Each hat is a one of a kind piece of art. The designs for the hats are pretty much the same although I do tweak them depending on the types and weights of yarn used. The embellishments on the hats make the statement and no two are alike. For those of you who really can’t force that much color into your life, I do make the more muted earth tones. I have done several special requests as far as color goes but my style is such that I have to have artistic license with the flowers, leaves, etc… Everyone has been very pleased.
Payment is made on approval, never before so you can be sure you are getting a hat you will want to wear every day!
Stop by my website at and check out what I have in stock. More are added nearly every day so keep checking or better yet e-mail me with your color preference or coat color!

Holiday Hats

You have to take a look at this hat!! It is the perfect hat for the Holidays!
Hand crocheted using a variety of rich, lush yarns from my favorite yarn store, this hat is sure to get you noticed this Holiday Season. Perfect for your entrance to those parties coming up! You will want to be fashionably late wearing this hat. It is fashioned in my new Flapper style but with embellishments that make this one a real work of art. It does contain wool so needs hand washing. It is difficult to get a good photo of the flower; the depth and richness are amazing! I made this flower in 8 separate pieces Look for the scarflet to match coming soon!
So stop by and take a peek.

Crocheted Hats

The Flapper hats were very popular in the 1920s when women’s style were at their peak. Feminine and sexy, sophisticated and demure all at the same time.I have tried to come up with a suitable replica in the crochet and knit mediums. The felted hats of course come the closest but I do love the open weave of the crochet variety I make. They look great with both the long and short hair styles of this anything goes style era we are in currently.This new series of hat are fashioned after the vintage Flapper Hats except that they are hand-crocheted. I use a variety of yarn fibers and I have a lot of fun with the flowers. I tried to use patterns for the flowers but always seemed to go astray so now I just start with a chain 4, join to form a ring and go off form there. I figure they must resemble something found in nature somewhere in the world J !
I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoy making them. Stop by and see all the new flapper hats!

I have been working on this free form peyote for a while now and think I have some pieces I really like. The newest one can be seen in the bracelet section. It took some tweaking and no two are alike but I believe I have come up with a template for the design I approve of. The center 49 strand professional wire and a clasp is attached to that, usually hand made by me in either sterling or 14K gold-filled wire with a gemstone or Swarovski twisted in. The rest is done with a variety of seed beads, gems, pearls and Swarovski crystals to add texture and make the piece truly a conversation piece. The result is a sturdy, beautiful piece of jewelry that will give pleasure for years to come. The thread I use is a nylon professional grade made for stringing gems and is very tough.

Handmade Dog Collars

These dog collars are really something! Handmade in Lawrenceville, Georgia USA by The Mod Dog, these would be a great gift for your favorite canine companion or for someone who adores their dog or puppy.
The Mod Dog specializes in custom designed accessories for your pet. They allow you to pick and choose all aspects of the design for the dog (or cat) collar/leash, so that it is completely customized to your liking. That means you can choose the style of the collar, the pattern, the main collar material, and hardware. The Mod Dog is happy to take special orders and customize a collar just for you and your four legged friend.
The Mod Dog began because the Kyra loved buying unique dog collars and was a little disappointed at the selection and quality available. She has made all collars fully adjustable and triple stitched at stress points to prevent breaking and prolong durability.
They are very reasonable priced at $10 to $19 and there are so many patterns available you are sure to find just the collar to suit your dog or puppy's personality. They also have cat collars for those who prefer feline companionship.
She is currently asking for a 7-10 day production window so get on over to and place your order now and give your faithful friend a fashionable new dog collar.
