Buying Tips for Men

Pearl from $60.00 (Tin Cup Necklaces)
This is a classic design of pearls hand-knotted on silk thread. If you are looking for a starter necklace, this is the one I always recommend. Start simple. I have never had a customer dissatisfied with the purchase of this necklace. In fact, I've almost always been guaranteed that the customer will come back for more!

Pearl & Rhinestone Rondel from $70.00 (Tin Cup Necklaces)
This is one of my most popular necklaces. The design is simple enough - two pearls surround a rhinestone rondel. I've seen this worn with jeans, as well as evening attire. Nancy O'Dell (from Access Hollywood) saw the bracelet that goes with this on a friend of mine and she ended up with the matched set!

Flower Swarovski Crystal & Faceted Pearls $90.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
This is my newest creation and most recent best-seller. I wire-wrapped the blue-gray faceted pearls with a flower shaped Swarovski crystal. This is meant to be worn as a choker.





Hand-Knotted Faceted Gray Pearls $210.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
This is a twist on the classic pearl necklace using faceted gray pearls. The pearls are hand-knotted and complemented by a silver toggle clasp. This necklace is sure to please anyone who appreciates the detail and look of a hand-knotted piece of jewelry.





Swarovski Cube Crystal & Rhinestone Rondels $240.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
I made this necklace for myself for my step-sister's wedding. I had a plain black dress that had tiny rhinestone straps. I used 10mm clear Swarovski crystal cubes with the AB coating (rainbow effect) and put two rhinestone rondels in between the Swarovski crystals. The effect was delicious and very popular at the wedding.





Triplet Pearl from $195.00 (Multi-Strand Necklaces)
This necklace was inspired by an antique necklace that a friend of mine had asked me to re-string. This piece used pearls and crystals with an extender clasp which allows you to wear a necklace either choker length or further down the neck. I used three different sizes of pearls or glass beads starting with small ones closer to the neck and graduating towards larger ones.

Wire-Wrapped Pearl with Rhinestone Rondel $155.00 (Multi-Strand Necklaces)
This is the very first necklace I ever sold to a store. I saw it on a woman in a restaurant. I introduced myself and confessed that I was the designer. She told me it was her favorite necklace because it can be worn as a two-strand necklace or twisted to add a whole new dimension (more choker-like). The rhinestone rondels give the pearls a touch of sparkle.





Hand-Knotted Pearl & Cubic Zirconia $85.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
Even though cubic zirconia isn't the real thing, I still love the sparkle that it adds to a necklace. Hand-knotting a necklace is always more labor-intensive, but I think it adds so much to a piece. These delicate pearl necklaces can worn be everyday.

Cube Crystal & Copper-Lined Beads $100.00 (Bracelets)
This bracelet is my answer to the gold and silver problem. I used Swarovski cube crystals and combined them with copper-lined faceted glass beads. Both the crystal and glass bead have an AB coating that adds an extra bit of sparkle. If you are looking for something fun and fancy - this bracelet is the answer!





Swarovski Crystal & Bali Beads $95.00 (Bracelets)
I wear this bracelet almost everyday because it truly goes with everything. I used 10mm clear Swarovski crystal AB cubes and interspersed silver bali beads. My daughter likes how this makes a rainbow effect on the roof of the car. I also combine this with a diamond tennis bracelet for a night on the town.
