Here is a wonderful shirt I have been working on. Fully custom fitted with hemp, beads, and some times mohair or what ever funky fibers I run into. I have sold quite a few and they are sooooooo flattering. EVERYONE looks like a goddess in them.
I Love tourmaline, especially water melon. I don't know what attracts me to it. I even like the black tourmaline with all the bright sparks in it. Yum. This bead is cool. It is from my bead supplier. He bought a bunch of them back in the 70's and this is the last of them ............. and the very last of the burgandy ones. I still have some orange and green ones I am selling in my store. They are an interesting blend of ceramic and decoupage.
She already got away with the sun and now she is after the moon. An original hand formed focal bead by Dana from Oregon was the inspiration for this piece. The double strand is chock full of Wild Horse turquoise rondells, labradorite rondell's, pearls, and sterling silver. The small strand measures 18 inches and the larger raven head strand 21 inches. Beautiful, earthy, delicate and strong.
This 24 inch long necklace is stunning in it's softness. Baby blues from amazonite to turquoise jasper breathes softly against rose quartz tablets and hieshi's, with just a glimmer of white pearls here and there. Lots of silver helps this necklace to be bright and soft. The sterling silver set face with the amazonite cabochon measure 2 1/2 by 1 1/8 inches. Sweet, soft, nice.
Yum ........... This piece full of sterling silver and large graduated wild horse rondells would make any raven happy. The wild horse rondells remind me of chocolate marble ice cream.
It measures 26 inches with the raven head being 1 3/4 by 3/4 inches. The 3mm sterling silver rope chain is thick and soft against the neck.
This one of a kind necklace made with a bone butterfly, luscious 9 mm turquoise round green beads, coral and sterling silver. It is a gorgeous piece for the discriminating dresser. It adjusts from 18 1/2 to 22 1/2 inches with hand wire wrapped links which are also covered with turquoise and coral. The butterfly hang down 3 1.2 inches and is 1 1/2 inches wide.
"Sleeping Amethyst Moon" is a unique sterling silver wire wrapped Bali face.
This piece is full of rich, thick amethyst. Amethyst, the spirit stone. Roundels, tablets, and rounds make this piece luscious. The accent sterling silver beads give it just the right amount of sparkle to contrast the deep purple. Since it is so hard to find matching earrings I have made a pair to match. They are made from identical 1/2 inch wide amethyst roundels with sterling silver beads and surgical steel ear wires. At 1-1/2 inches long they perfectly complement the necklace.
Feel confident in purchasing this set that you will own a one of a kind hand crafted piece of art.
Labradorite and glass in grays and blacks give this piece sophistication. The white carved bone face deserves it. The center piece measures 2 3/4 inches by 1 1/4 inches, and beautifully wire wrapped with sterling silver to look like hair. This piece is stunning. It measures 25 1/2 inches so it will rest well below the neck. It is full of sterling silver from the beads, the labradorite pendants, and the wire wrap which play off the gray nicely. This is definitely one of a kind.
Big Doug made me this bead. It is hard to see but there is a great green mushroom in it with beautiful turquoise swirls that pick up the turquoise nuggets on the necklace perfectly. It is a real honkin' thing. It is gorgeous.
This lovely bone Buddha face surrounded by luscious blue turquoise nuggets and symmetrical 8mm calibrated picture jasper rounds is perfect for a man or a woman. The necklace is finished off with sterling silver beads and is adjustable from 17 to 21 inches with the hand wired sterling jump rings. Strong and happy.
