Buying Tips for Men

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!

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.

Multi-Colored Pearl $85.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
I thought these multi-colored pearls were very fun. So I made them into a long strand necklace with flower bali beads. This is great with turtlenecks. I also wear this as a bracelet. I combine it with the clear crystal cube bracelet and wear the two of them together.





Swarovski Cube Crystal & Rhinestone Rondels $240.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
I made this necklace for myself for my step-sister's wedding. I had a plain black dress that had tiny rhinestone straps. I used 10mm clear Swarovski crystal cubes with the AB coating (rainbow effect) and put two rhinestone rondels in between the Swarovski crystals. The effect was delicious and very popular at the wedding.





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.

Wire-Wrapped Pearl with Rhinestone Rondel $155.00 (Multi-Strand Necklaces)
This is the very first necklace I ever sold to a store. I saw it on a woman in a restaurant. I introduced myself and confessed that I was the designer. She told me it was her favorite necklace because it can be worn as a two-strand necklace or twisted to add a whole new dimension (more choker-like). The rhinestone rondels give the pearls a touch of sparkle.





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.

Swarovski Crystal Cube & Bali Bead $30.00 (Earrings)
This is my most popular earring. The post is very unique and the 10mm clear Swarovski crystal AB cube adds a certain sparkle to your ears.





Swarovski Crystal Cube Post $30.00 (Earrings)
I have a lot of women tell me they don't like things hanging off their ears. Here is the answer to that problem - a beautiful cube crystal on a silver post. The cut of the crystal gives a prism-like effect giving off a rainbow of colors. These are 6mm in size.
