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 & 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.

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.





Silver Chain Toggle Clasp & Swarovski Crystal Dangles $90.00 (Lariat Necklaces)
I wanted to find a way to make a true lariat necklace out of chain. This necklace uses a flat bali bead, which adds contrast to the delicate chain, and a toggle clasp. The Swarovski crystal dangles help to keep the necklace from coming undone. This is another necklace that looks great with low cut blouses or dresses.





Pearl with Chain & Rhinestone Rondel $155.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
This is another piece that was inspired by someone asking me to design a necklace for a wedding. It incorporates the wire-wrapping technique with chain inbetween the pearls. A rhinestone rondel is set on top of the pearl that dangles from the chain. This necklace is not just for brides or bridesmaids - it is for anyone who wants a spectacular looking piece of jewelry around her neck.

Zig Zag Pearl & Bali $80.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
Good things come in threes! This elegant pearl necklace features 3 unusual top-drilled "zig zag" pearls (I call them that because of the pattern they make) spaced by 3 silver flower bali beads. The glow of the pearls is accented by the rich detail of the bali beads, and the overall effect is quite sophisticated & versatile. (This would make a wonderful bridesmaids' necklace!)





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.

Zig Zag Pearls & Flower $100.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
This pendant piece has a mixture of two kinds of abalone. The small flower is wire-wrapped with a Swarovski diamond-shape crystal. The zig zag pearls add a type of texture to this necklace and accentuate the abalone beautifully. The necklace is closed off by a silver toggle clasp. This necklace can be worn with jeans, as easily as it can be worn with a fancy dress.

Clear Quartz $35.00 (Earrings)
This is a delicate semi-precious drop earring. The facets accentuate the stone and add a bit of sparkle. These can be worn as an everyday earring or for that special night out.





CZ Pendant $30.00 (Earrings)
I put these cubic zirconia pendants on a eurowire when I couldn't find my diamond earrings. I fell in love with the look and kept them in my personal collection.





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.
