The necklaces here are glorious mixtures of different gemstones and colors and other materials, made as the spirit moved me. Many of them were inspired by music, some by paintings, others by people I know. Whether the combination of gemstones is a soft mixture of pastels or a bright, strong mixture of primary colors, or even a mixture of the two, these necklaces are fun to wear, and are, of course, made of genuine gemstones of all colors, shapes, and quality.
Luscious necklace of genuine amethysts, rose quartz and citrines is nice and chunky and the gemstones lead down to a wonderful circle of jewels that are the same as those in the necklace. Sterling silver is some of our favorite from Bali and the large sterling beads are perfect foils for the faceted gemstone nuggets. The faceted gemstones are especially pretty. The amethysts have a lovely translucence. All sterling silver in this one of a kind necklace. Perfect for those with a February birthday, too.
Marriage of the Opposition
This is another beaded necklace that is not for everyone. Everything about this handmade necklace is just a bit larger than usual. First, the largest amethyst nuggets that we've ever had are on either side of the focal lampwork bead (by James Derrick Reeves). The green quartz nuggets and the aquamarine nuggets are also large as are the pyramid shaped sterling beads and the rounds, both intricately decorated. Small sharply faceted amethyst nuggets and faceted aquamarine rondelles add to the complexity of this bracelet. A shepherd's hook in sterling silver is the closure. This unique necklace is for the individual who really wants to be different.
This beautiful, brightly colored necklace is a mixture of aqua green chalcedony, pink chalcedony, chunky amethyst nuggets, and intricately faceted olive shaped lemon quartz beads. A swirling flowered toggle clasp, sterling silver, of course, is the closure. Small sterling silver beads from the Thai Karen Hill Tribes are between each of the beads.
