Buying Tips for Men

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!

Smoky Quartz & Bali Beads $90.00 (Tin Cup Necklaces)
This is a faceted rondel piece of smoky quartz surrounded by round bali beads. This necklace is sure to enhance any brown, beige, gray or even black outfit.





Smoky Quartz & Beige Pearl $90.00 (Tin Cup Necklaces)
I loved the name of this stone, "Smoky Quartz Cushion Cut." To me, they look like little diamond shaped pillows of smoky quartz. This can be worn for both daytime and evening affairs and coordinates well with a variety of colors. The beige pearls and silver flower bali beads makes for a great combination.





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.

Pearl & Bali Beads with Gold-Filled Rondels $155.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
This necklace has a very conservative look to it, but it can also be worn with evening attire. The flower bali beads are strung together and accentuated by pearls that are surrounded by a gold-filled rondel. This is another necklace that is hard to keep in stock.





Swarovski Tear Drop Crystal & Bali Beads $175.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
This necklace started as just a bracelet. I strung the flower bali beads together and spread tear drop crystals through it intermittently. One of my customers liked it so much that she asked if I could make a matching necklace. I liked the way it came out so much that I kept it as a part of my collection.





Vitriol Octagonal Swarovski Crystal & Bali Beads $150.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
The shape of these Swarovski vitriol crystals is so great. When strung all together, the round bali beads enhance the octagonal form of the Swarovski crystal. I accentuated the Swarovski crystal with another different styled bali bead. This necklace is definitely a crowd pleaser.





Silver Granule & Swarovski Crystal with Bali Beads $180.00 (Multi-Strand Necklaces)
There is something unique about this necklace and yet I don't know why. It is a triple strand choker that I always get compliments on. I always sell out of it too. I used silver granules with 4mm diamond shape Swarovski vitriol crystal and bali beads. I like to use the Swarovski vitriol crystal because it takes on so many different colors that it is sure to enhance any blouse, as well as any dress you own.





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.

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 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.
