Buying Tips for Men

Blue-Gray Pearls with Silver Dangles $75.00 (Tin Cup Necklaces)
This necklace features lovely blue-gray pearls. I place wire-wrapped silver ball dangles in between two pearls. The silver dangles give this necklace an added flair of fun for conservatives who are looking to branch out!





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!

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.





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 Vitriol Crystal & Silver Dangles $75.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
I once had someone call and ask me to make this necklace that they saw on one of my customer's. She described it to me as, "sparkling diamonds around the neck with a hint of silver." I used the 4mm Swarovski vitriol diamond shaped crystals with silver dangles and a silver heart-shaped lobster clasp.





Faceted Pearls & Silver Spacer Bar $150.00 (Multi-Strand Necklaces)
I bought these silver spacer bars and never really found just the right material. Then I found these gray faceted pearls. The facets actually make the pearls look like they have silver running through them. The chunks of silver accentuates these pearls beautifully in a choker style necklace.





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.

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.





Machine-Cut Sterling Beads $50.00 (Bracelets)
These amazing sterling silver ball beads have an intricate machine-cut wave pattern that catches the light in an intense way. I spaced them with spool-shaped bali beads. Sure to draw comments from appreciative onlookers, this bracelet looks great with jeans or dressed up. It coordinates with many of my sterling silver necklaces, too - including a matching machine-cut sterling bead necklace! (Just click "Coordinating items" under the image.)
