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!

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.





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.

Geometric Double Pearl Choker $200.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
This is a stunning, dramatic piece of pearl jewelry. If you have no patience with the traditional princess strand of pearls, you will love this bold geometric choker. I interspersed the unique, double-drilled diamond-shaped pearls with smaller round pearls -- top and bottom. The effect is like no other necklace I've seen. While certainly dramatic, this is a very versatile piece of jewelry. You'll love it!





Geometric Pearls $100.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
These pearls are so uniquely shaped! One of the pearls is in the shape of a rectangle and the other is a diamond shape. These pearls with opal diamond shaped 4mm crystals make quite a statement. This necklace can really be worn for any occasion.





Double-Drilled Pearls & Swarovski Crystal $145.00 (Multi-Strand Necklaces)
I wasn't really sure what to do with these unique pearls. Then I got a call from someone who wanted me to make bridal party necklaces. This was the end result -- a choker with these pearls, Swarovski crystals and a box-shaped clasp. The bride wore it in white, her bridesmaids in blue-gray, all with matching bracelets (also available).

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.

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.

Double-Drilled Pearls & Swarovski Crystal $70.00 (Bracelets)
I love these pearls because of their unique double holes, but wasn't really sure what to do with them! Then I got a call from someone who wanted me to make bridal party necklaces. After far too many combinations I came up with something I liked. Then I came up with this matching bracelet.

White Pearl $25.00 (Earrings)
This is an earring that can be worn everyday. I wire-wrapped a pearl on a silver eurowire for a classic look.
