Buying Tips for Men

Blue Chalcedony & Swarovski Crystals $120.00 (Tin Cup Necklaces)
This cut of blue chalcedony is both striking and delicate. I combined silver bali beads with Swarovski diamond shape crystals and a silver toggle clasp. This semi-precious stone is translucent in nature and goes with blues as easily as it does blacks, whites, and even grays.

Silver Lipstick from $95.00 (Lariat Necklaces)
I thought this pendant added a certain funkiness to the necklace. Some customers had a hard time figuring out which way to put the pendant through the hole. My simple trick is to make sure the bottom looks like a tube of lipstick with the lipstick popping through the hole.

Blue Agate & Bali Beads $75.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
This flattering piece features blue agate. It is a lovely, vibrant shade of blue, and has a wonderful sheen. The shape of the agate pieces reminded me of an hour glass - a convex indentation. I accentuated the piece with silver spool-shaped bali beads. It's sure to be a hit, especially with anyone who loves the color blue!

Blue-Gray and White Pearl $70.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
Blue-gray pearls interspersed with white pearls lend themselves to a classy, yet fun necklace. This can be worn with jeans or used to dress up a plain dress. You could come up with a million places to wear this one.

Geometric Turquoise $100.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
This is really a fun turquoise necklace with clean lines & a little sparkle. The oval and rectangular turquoise pieces are delicately faceted to catch the light; I spaced them between Swarovski diamond-shaped crystals that add a deep, intense, reflective blue counterpoint to the turquoise. Eye-catching for sure!

Swarovski Crystal Button $300.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
This necklace is a followup to my Swarovski Crystal Button Bracelet. Because I make the ornaments on this necklace myself, it is extremely labor-intensive...but an absolute show-stopper! Nothing has more sparkle than this; whenever I wear it I am always stopped. Color: Light Vitriol.

Black Seed Bead & CZ $140.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
These tiny black seed beads are called "Charlotte seed beads." A surface has been cut into these beads to make it reflect light and sparkle a bit. I have no idea where the name Charlotte for this bead was derived. The CZ pendant with these beads makes for one sparkling necklace!

Blue Chalcedony & Swarovski Crystal $130.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
This lovely pendant necklace features faceted rondels of blue chalcedony, accented with Swarovski clear AB rondel crystals. The pièce de résistance is a large emerald-cut blue chalcedony pendant with a deeper shade of blue. I used a silver toggle clasp. Gorgeous and dramatic!

Multi-Colored Pearls & Turquoise Flower $130.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
Given my affinity towards faceted pearls, I fell in love with the extreme variety of these. This strand exhibits colors of brown, gray, white, and green. I mixed a turquoise stone pendant with Swarovski clear crystal rondels and a silver toggle clasp as finishing touches. This piece is sophisticated yet playful!

Blue Chalcedony $165.00 (Bracelets)
This bracelet is the same style as the purple chalcedony - the tear drop shaped stone and box-shaped clasp. The color in this bracelet is a beautiful blue and works well with blues, grays, blacks - a variety of colors. It looks good if you are going out for the evening or out to dinner in an old pair of jeans.

Turquoise Seed Bead $85.00 (Bracelets)
I made this bracelet with a friend of mine in mind. She loves turquoise and has been one of my biggest supporters. I combined seed beads with a few strands of turquoise. I topped it off with a triple-strand clasp to create a cuff-style bracelet.

Silver Bali & Dangles from $145.00 (Bracelets)
I always refer to this as my "funky" bracelet. The look of it is just so fun. I used oblong bali beads. (I also used these as vases in my daughter's doll house!) Then I wire-wrapped silver dangles inbetween the bali beads. I wear this with the multi-colored pearl necklace that doubles as a bracelet.

Swarovski Crystal Button from $180.00 (Bracelets)
The Swarovski Crystal Button Bracelet was born from an image I had in my head, but couldn't find the necessary materials. So, I ended up having to make everything myself. These bracelets are labor-intensive, but absolute show-stoppers. Whenever I wear one of these, I am always stopped. All the Swarovski Crystal button bracelets have a silver clasp except for the multi-colored one, which has a vermeil clasp.
