Tear drop Tourmaline cascades off of a rainbow of Tourmaline rounds. A few burgundy Tourmaline puff cushions crawl up the neck. Can be worn with the wire work showing or not. Adjustable sterling wire wrapped closure attatched.
This necklace runs 30 inches and all beads are Rhodonite and solid copper with the exception of the chain which I believe is copper plated. I am hoping it will patina into a black to match the matrix in the various Rhodonite stones.
Simple Matching earrings available.
This is my signature necklace. I have been wearing one for years and I am always asked to make one for sale. The picture does NOT do it justice. The beautiful blue turquoise just gets better with wear and the silver antiquing naturally makes it look deep and lucious. It is adjustable and can be made bigger to fit any neck. I will be making another with Sleeping Beauty nuggets soon.
Campitos Turquoise Custom Necklace
An elegant blend of 7mm to 12mm Campitos Turquoise potato nuggets, accented with sterling silver links and clasp. The Campitos nuggets have natural inclusions of pyrite.
The length of the necklace is adjustable from approximately 17 to 20 inches.
I broke into the private stash to make this bracelet. It is made with a take off on the herringbone weave but this one can roll around since there is no front or back to it. Lots of silver and some very precious baby blue White Water mine natural nuggets. The bracelet is adjustable. Contact me to ensure size. firstname.lastname@example.org
Sterling and large oval nuggets surround the neck with 22 inches of turquoise. This was made for a gentleman who asked "where are the men's necklaces?". Large toggle clasp in the back. The focal nugget is 1 1/4 inches by 1 inch. All the ladies will say uuuh lala!
There are five of these sweet things made for EBay. They run 18 1/2 to 21 1/4 with the extender chain. These turquoise necklaces are from the private stash. Beautiful blue green. The kind of necklace that will go with anything. The focal nuggets run over an inch long on average.
Ooo Lala. I like. This is actually two necklaces on one clasp, and so they can be worn seperately.
The smaller is 17 1/2 inces, and the larger is 20 1/2 inches. Natural colour and slightly stabilized turquoise nuggets (the good stuff from the private stash), amethyst and sterling.
The pendant is wire wrapped and measures 3 1/2 by 1 3/4. Dark, mysterious, bold. If you would like this piece to be longer I can hand wire an extention chain ................ just let me know.
A lucious strand of 45 grams of sleeping beauty strung up into a 20 inch necklace with a sterling toggle clasp. The eggs run from just over a half inch large and graduate down to a quarter of an inch.
This hand blown glass bottle by Noel asked to be married with Moonstone, Apatite, Labradorite, Green Jade, Lapis Lazuli and Sterling. There is no way to do this necklace justice with a meer photo. The blues in the Labradirite bouncing off of the blues in Moonstone and mimicing the spiral swirls through out the glass. The beads also spiral around the neck. A sight to behold. The necklace adjusts with Sterling hand wired links of Lapis and Jade 18 1/2 to 22 inches. The bottle with working cork to hide your special jojo is 2 inches long and 1 inch wide.
I think I might just keep it. The colours are perfect. Raku, Garnet, Ruby and Blood Stone with heaps of Sterling. Garnet heishi circles the neck. It attatches on the side and can be adjusted from 20 to 24 inches with hand wired Sterling links. The hand blown Goddess from Noel is over 3 inches by one inch.
I made myself a necklace last night in the wee hours. I have a bunch of silver soldered cabs to use up and I am preparing for a trunk show. This one is a keeper for moi. I love the color in this sugilite. The rubies are for sale in my store. They have surprisingly big holes. I almost stopped stringing it to use wire instead, but I had the plan to make this so kept with it. I love it.
Changed my mind. I will let it go for $99. Email me for size email@example.com
This thick with silver yet delicate choker is a strong statement. There is nothing dainty about it yet it is so feminine. Dangling amethyst and glass beads accenting almost 30 grams of sterling silver will not go unnoticed. It measures 15 1/2 to 17 inches depending on the bend in the centre wire. The center piece amethyst facetted nugget hang down 3 inches. The nugget is 15 by 10 mm. Nice. Stunning.
This was my first attempt at wire crochet. I had of course worked with wire, and knitted it in a spool, but never crocheted with a hook. I finally found some wire tiny enough as I usually only buy big wire. I was impressed with the outcome. It is super flexible and it does not have sharp corners that would feel uncomfortable like I thought it might. I have been having a blast. I can crochet so fast that I can whip one of these out in record time. It took me longer to put the end caps on than anything else. $29.95
