Buying Tips for Men

Multi-Colored Pearl $90.00 (Tin Cup Necklaces)
This necklace is a variation on the classic Tin Cup. These pearls have a beautiful irridescence to them. The pearls are approximately 8 - 9mm in size and are a spectacular sight. The multi-color of the pearls adds to the versitility as either a day or evening necklace.

Blue Agate & Bali Beads $75.00 (Single Strand Necklaces)
This flattering piece features blue agate. It is a lovely, vibrant shade of blue, and has a wonderful sheen. The shape of the agate pieces reminded me of an hour glass - a convex indentation. I accentuated the piece with silver spool-shaped bali beads. It's sure to be a hit, especially with anyone who loves the color blue!

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.

Red Faceted Pearls with Flower $100.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
Okay, let me start out by saying that red and I do not get along color wise. That being said, when I put this necklace on, no matter what color I am wearing, this is a piece to be reckoned with! These pearls are such a deep red and so stunning that everyone I know who has tried it on (and who also share my opinion of red), ends up purchasing this necklace and wearing it to death. The white bone flower pendant is a gently carved accent piece and the necklace is finished with a silver toggle clasp.

Turquoise & Amazonite $120.00 (Pendant Necklaces)
This should be called the Houdini necklace. Everytime I wear this piece, people think that it is wrapped around my neck like a choker. However, this is actually one tin cup necklace that is two pieces attached to a silver toggle clasp - a choker of Amazonite and and a longer part (also made of Amazonite) which incorporates the turquoise pendant. You put it on, just like you would any other necklace, and get ready to dazzle!

Hand-Knotted Turquoise $70.00 (Eyeglass Holders)
And once again, someone asked if I could do something, not only in an eyeglass holder, but with turquoise. So, I incorporated the round turquoise bead with these interesting copperish bali beads on hand-knotted silk thread.

Acrylic CZ $80.00 (Bracelets)
These are vintage acrylic beads with Swarovski crystal in the middle. These beads are fascinating works of art and are very light in weight. The Swarovski diamond shape crystal adds an extra bit of sparkle. This bracelet is a true conversation piece!

Geometric Double Pearl $130.00 (Bracelets)
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 bracelet. I interspersed the unique, double-drilled diamond-shaped pearls with smaller round pearls -- top and bottom. The effect is like no other bracelet I've seen. While certainly dramatic, this is a very versatile piece of jewelry. You'll love it!

Smoky Quartz Cushion Cut $100.00 (Bracelets)
I had to find something else to make with these delicious cuts of smoky quartz. 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.

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.

Ballerina Charm Tin Cup Necklace $60.00 (for Children)
This is an elegant take on an old favorite - the charm necklace. I used hand-knotted silk thread with pearls, flower bali beads, and 4mm diamond shaped crystals to enhance the beauty of one single charm. Little girls love these because it reminds them of a grown-up necklace.

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!

Swarovski Crystal & Bali Bead $30.00 (Anklets)
I remember the first time I made an anklet. It was a special request from a customer at a jewelry party. After I made her one, about half a dozen people wanted one. I felt a little like a shoe salesperson fitting these anklets! I combined silver chain with Swarovski crystals and flower bali beads.

Swarovski Crystal & Filigree $35.00 (Anklets)
I made this anklet as a variation of the diamond-shaped Swarovski crystal and bali bead anklet. I used a my favorite chain, which adds a little bit of a different flavor into the mix.

Zig Zag Pearl $30.00 (Anklets)
I thought that the zig zag bracelets make such an impression on the wrist - wouldn't they look flashy on the ankle? So again, another product was born from an already existing idea. I use zig zag pearls that are a little bit smaller than the ones I use for bracelets. It adds that oh so sexy quality to the ankle.
