Buying Tips for Men

Swarovski Crystal Tear Drop $65.00 (Tin Cup Necklaces)
This necklace is sure to please. It combines pearls with Swarovski tear drop crystals. I used to make this necklace with mono colored crystals. Then one holiday season, I tried using two different colored Swarovski crystals together, and, much to my surprise, those necklaces were a sell-out. This is another one of those necklaces that can be worn with jeans or with fancy attire.

White Pearl & Swarovski Crystal $65.00 (Tin Cup Necklaces)
White pearls can always be worn with anything, but by adding a diamond shaped 4mm Swarovski Crystal and silver toggle clasp - you've added a new spin to an old classic. This necklace can be worn for both day and evening attire.





Pearl & Swarovski Crystal Toggle $90.00 (Lariat Necklaces)
This was a necklace that was more of an experiment, but I knew I had struck gold when even my boyfriend took notice! The Swarovski crystal dangles on the end of the necklace go through the toggle clasp and the design of the Swarovski crystal dangles keeps the lariat from coming undone. This necklace looks especially exciting on a low cut dress or unbuttoned blouse.

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.





Faceted Pearls & Cubic Zirconia from $80.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
I fell in love with this cubic zirconia pendant. It is so striking that I didn't want to detract from its beauty. So, I mixed faceted pearls with it and found it only enhanced the pendant. The CZ won't fool anyone into thinking its a real diamond, but its brilliance comes close! See it in beige, and in purple.

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!





Semi-Precious Dangles $100.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
This is a simple, yet elegant necklace. The dangles are semi-precious faceted stones - blue chalecedony, smoky quartz, and lemon topaz. This necklace lends a bit of sparkle to any occasion an is always an eye-pleaser, as well as an attenion-getter.





White Flower w/ Leather $50.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
I tried to make my pendants stand out from the rest. This has a bali bead that has a small cubic zirconia stone that adds a bit of sparkle to the carved white flower. This is strung on black leather cord and finish off with a silver toggle (hook and eye) clasp.





White Pearl & Smoky Quartz/CZ from $100.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
I can never keep this necklace in stock. The pendant almost looks like a picture frame surrounding the smoky quartz. Then I used elongated bali beads on either side of a faceted piece of smoky quartz and topped off the whole necklace with white pearls. Simple design - tremendous response.
NEW: This design with a Cubic Zirconia pendant! Just click the 'White with CZ' link underneath the picture to see it.

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.





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.





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.
