Buying Tips for Men

Brown-Lavender Pearl & Bali Beads $65.00 (Tin Cup Necklaces)
The uniqueness of this necklace is in the color of the pearls. It can be worn with almost any color you desire because the pearl itself takes on different qualities. To see it is to believe it. It looks good with blues, blacks, browns, grays - just to name a few. The flower bali bead is used to enhance the pearl's brilliance.





Faceted Pearl $65.00 (Tin Cup Necklaces)
Faceted pearls are my newest find. The faceted aspect of the pearl gives it just a hint of sparkle. The faceted pearls strung by themselves or with accent pieces, such as rondels or bali beads, are a real wonder to behold. You won't be sorry with any color you order.

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!

Seed Bead & Swarovski Crystal $115.00 (Lariat Necklaces)
This classic lariat with a clasp-free design can be worn in so many different ways that customers have shown me new ways to wear it. I also like this design because you can wear it with a turtleneck or an open collared shirt or V-neck. I combined seed beads with crystals and find unique crystals for the dangles.

Silver Chain Clasp & Silver Dangles $85.00 (Lariat Necklaces)
Whenever someone has bought this necklace or when I am wearing it, it is always admired. It is a simple design that uses my favorite chain - the filigree, yet, unlike most lariat necklaces, it has a clasp. I also do this necklace with pearl dangles instead of the bali bead dangles.





Zig Zag Pearl and Crystal Dangles $95.00 (Lariat Necklaces)
I never know what to call these pearls - I thought zig zag suited their design. I started using these as fun bracelets on elastikord and then graduated to this lariat design with glass bead dangles. My mom was wearing this necklace at Nordstrom's and a woman bought it off her neck! Stories like that are why I love to make jewelry.

Pearl & Swarovski Crystal with Bali Beads $150.00 (Multi-Strand Necklaces)
I was making a lot of Swarovski crystal bracelets with elastikord (like a lot of designers), but I wanted to expand it from the ordinary. I started using pearls with elastikord and then combined pearls with elastikord and 4mm Swarovski crystals and flower bali beads. I used an extender clasp so this can be worn as a choker or a more lengthy necklace. This piece was purchased by Access Hollywood.





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.

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.

Seed Bead & Cubic Zirconia $40.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
This seed bead necklace with a cubic zirconia pendant is a knock-off (as my mother loves to phrase things) of the hand-knotted pearl necklace. I had someone who was looking for a simple, yet elegant necklace to go with a beaded top I sell. We both were stunned to see how this necklace went so exquisitely with everything!





Bali Beads & CZ Rondel $190.00 (Bracelets)
This bracelet was inspired by the Pearl & Bali Beads with Gold-Filled Rondels necklace that I did for my mother and her friends. I actually saw diamond rondels, but those were cost-prohibitive. So, I used the next best thing - cz rondels and added gold-filled rondels to accentuate each side.





White Pearl & Bali Beads $95.00 (Bracelets)
This bracelet was made to compliment the Pearl & Bali Beads with Gold-Filled Rondels Single Strand Necklace (otherwise known as the YaYa necklace). So many of my mom's friends bought the necklace and wanted something equally as nice for their wrist.

This bracelet has silver bali beads with white pearls that are surrounded by gold-filled rondels. This bracelet can be used for any time - day or night.
