"Earth Blend" Lampwork Necklace - $100.

I love how this piece turned out!

This princess length lampwork necklace features a focal of various swirls and bubbles in rich earth tones. Spangled rounds splashed with silver complement the beauty of the focal.

Set off with fiber optic beads, smokey quartz rounds and sterling silver beads, this is truly a one-of-a-kind, gorgeous necklace.

The focal bead was created by Canadian lampwork artist Jeannie's Beads.

"Marilyn's Ivory" Necklace

My friend, Laura Neadle, asked me to create a necklace using ivory pieces that were originally in a bracelet belonging to her mother.

The result was a princess length necklace with the ivory for focals, accented by seamless sterling rounds, multifaceted black beads and antiqued silver balls.

My interest in jewelry design started a few years ago when a friend showed me how to make a bracelet. That little craft project led me to discover a new world of beads, glass, stones, metal, crystal and more delightful materials with which to work.
I make necklaces, earrings and bracelets, and will make a set of all three if desired. I only use sterling silver wire in my pieces.
I buy many of my beads directly from the artists who make them.
Thanks for stopping by to look at my jewelry! Each piece is one-of-a-kind and made with love for people who shine!
