I wanted some pretty bracelets for myself, so I made these.  Freshwater pearls and Delicas, make up the one on the bottom.  Swarovsky little purse.  The top one is alternating-shape cherry quartz.  They're super pretty, when worn together.  I do it lots!

Pretty Little Something

Mini (sterling) tag, with soft, abalone- colored pearl.  This is all on sterling.  The color it photographed as, isn't quite what it is in real life.  The idea is there, however.

Precious Possessions I

I made this sweet piece for a girlfriend. She handed me a palm-full of baubles that she'd found in a flea market and said- can you make something out of these? I believe the stone above is aventurine and the rest are dear little trinkets. The teal stones are turquoise (nach) and I put it all on a (possibly?) nickel chain (just base metal. It absolutely went the best, with the collection of bits). I LOVED the length of this. Had trouble parting with it!

Purple Sparks

Gold plated chain/ear wires, purple quartz, gold plated sparkle beads, citrine. These earrings are SO WEIGHTLESS. It's incredible. Glam + comfort = heavenly match...

Golden Cherry Moon

Cherry quartz, turquoise, gold sterling, Chinese beads, copper, gold plated, sterling chains, gold plated findings. Slips over head- no clasp. Fresh and simple!


Peach moonstone, crystal quartz and sterling.
Part of a "make me some fun, nighttime earrings," collection.

Skulls and Stones II

Bone- skull (these were given to me), carnelian, bloodstone, citrine, freshwater pearl, crystal quartz, onyx. Gold-filled findings, strung on Soft Flex wire.

Onxy, jade. Gunmetal loops and sterling findings. These looked really cute, on. Approx 1" in length.

Black and Tans

Onyx, faceted citrine, and it's hard to see but the pendant position is tiger's eye. These look a little green in this pic, but are not at all, in person. Much more caramel-ey. They measure approximately 3". Findings and chain are gold-filled.

Here's a revised shot of them. Color is slightly more true-to-life.

Skulls and Stones

I was given these skull beads, but I suspect they're bone? Carnelian, vintage glass (bigger bauble) and sterling findings/chain. Hilariously, I have no idea what I did with this piece. Sold? Given? Still have it? I was inspired by this piece of Kat Von D's- (the cream, shell necklace).

Elements of Earth

Black, freshwater pearl, garnet and turquoise. Sterling findings, gunmetal chain.

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Turquoise, quartz crystal, black, faceted, freshwater pearl, sterling findings and base-metal (nickel, maybe?) charm. I really just made this one for myself. It doesn't have a clasp, which is one of my fave things- just putting it over the top of your head.

I've been inspired by Lauren VĂ©lez' character on Dexter. The wardrobe people on the show, really put her in some beautiful jewelry. Additionally, she jewelrys up herself, quite nicely...

Turque-ish Danglers, Choral Tanglers

A pair I made, for a girlfriend. She purchased an unseen collection from me with the instructions "I want some I can wear to work and some I can wear to a fancy dinner." I don't know which category these fell in.

I think these were in the "work" category. Choral, black, freshwater-pearl, sterling.

A co-worker commissioned me to make this piece and it inspired an onslaught of bracelets. I haven't made those in so long! This one above is mostly a variety of champagne pearls/sterling findings.

SUCH a sweet toggle. You can see the pic up top is not the true color of the pearls. It's somewhere between that dark, and the lightness in these shots.

These are onyx, pearl, lapis, garnet, turquoise, moonstone, jasper... um... I think that's it!

These are more vibrant in person, but this shot gives an idea. Pearls and stones. I really love using semi-precious (or precious) materials. It makes it more organic (in my opinion).
