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...

Jade, carnelian, gold-plated findings.

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).
