Buying Tips for Men

Blue-Gray and White Pearl $70.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
Blue-gray pearls interspersed with white pearls lend themselves to a classy, yet fun necklace. This can be worn with jeans or used to dress up a plain dress. You could come up with a million places to wear this one.

Carnelian Tear Drop $200.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
This necklace is made exclusively of faceted carnelian tear drop shapes, which line up in a subtle zig-zag pattern and drape beautifully at the base of the neck. The carnelian color is luxuriously rich, and the facets add an extra bit of sparkle. It looks fabulous with outfits in neutral tones or earth tones, and adds a dramatic counterpoint to the little black dress!

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!

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.

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!)

Copper-Lined Glass Bead $145.00 (Multi-Strand Necklaces)
The copper lining of these bead adds a hint of color and dazzle. I used a clear irridescent bead inbetween each of the copper-lined beads. I liked it so much that, by accident, I made it extremely long. Trying to work with my mistake, I doubled it and, voila, another necklace was born. This has a beautiful vermeil clasp with semi-precious stones.

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.

Blue-Gray Pearl & Amethyst $105.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
This is a simple design of blue-gray pearls and 4mm diamond shape crystals. The main feature of this necklace is a pendant that is oval in shape and contains a brilliant amethyst stone. I like wearing these pendant necklaces with open collar shirts and turtleneck sweaters.

Carnelian with Flower $150.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
My mom wanted a necklace that incorporated the latest pendant craze. I found these red stone pendants and combined them with faceted carnelian rondels. The silver chain is exquisite in detail. I wire-wrapped the Carnelian rondels and finished the piece off with fancy bali bead caps.

Peruvian Opal w/ Leather $75.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
The accent on this leather cord necklace is, of course, the peruvian opal (also known as green chalcedony). The irridescent faceted stone is highlighted by a Swarovski AB crystal flower and wire-wrapped flat crystals. You can easily see why this necklace is so hard for me to keep in stock! Day or evening - it is sure to catch someone's attention.

Swarovski Crystal Button from $180.00 (Bracelets)
The Swarovski Crystal Button Bracelet was born from an image I had in my head, but couldn't find the necessary materials. So, I ended up having to make everything myself. These bracelets are labor-intensive, but absolute show-stoppers. Whenever I wear one of these, I am always stopped. All the Swarovski Crystal button bracelets have a silver clasp except for the multi-colored one, which has a vermeil clasp.

Hand-Knotted Pearl Bracelet $90.00 (for Children)
And then after I made my daughter a pearl necklace - she wanted a pearl bracelet to match. Little did I know she would also use this as a necklace for her doll! This bracelet uses hand-knotted sillk thread with pearls and, again, is finished off with a heart-shaped clasp.

Swarovski Crystal Necklace $49.00 (for Children)
I get many of my inspirations from my own daughter. She sometimes will help me by giving me her input (for someone so young she has a great eye for design). So, one day we were playing around and came up with this cute design using 4mm diamond-shape Swarovski crystals. She liked it because it "looks like little diamonds for kids."

Brown Pearl $20.00 (Earrings)
This is an earring that can be worn everyday. I wire-wrapped a pearl on a silver eurowire for a classic look. Price quoted is for the pair.

Swarovski Crystal Button Drop $40.00 (Earrings)
These earrings match the light vitriol button bracelet and necklace. These can be worn for a night on the town or a day at the office. Either way, your ears will sparkle and shine!
