Necklace: Malachite, Picture Jasper, 14K Gold

This is one of those rare occasions when gold really did work better with the design than silver would have. I used 14Kt bali beads as spacers, and 14K gold filled wire and round beads to finish off the necklace. There are hand carved african malachite beads used (vintage) and also I used large oval chinese picture jasper beads in the design. I also made the center pendant detachable, if you would want to just wear it by itself. This is a really heavy piece, probably close to 2 pounds! Length is approximately 22" but just a guess. Price: $100.00

Necklace: Amethyst, Rainbow Moonstone, Celtic Flair!

This is definately a masterpiece.

I used Sterling silver Bali beads and Sterling pendant with moonstone to enhance the colors of the Amethyst and Rainbow Moonstone. Please note, there is a lot more color in the Rainbow Moonstone beads than can be shown in this picture. The pendant has lots of "fire" to the moonstone mounted in it, too. I also used clear Quartz crystals on the bottom teir to accentuate the pendant. Length is approximately 19 inches and the price for this one is $88.00

Necklace: Moss Agate & Chinese Picture Jasper

This is a chunky earthy creation made with Heavy Sterling Silver spacers, chunky Brown Picture Jasper beads, and Moss Agate.
I enjoy looking closely at the Moss Agate, as it appears that there
is green moss trapped and floating inside the beads. Fun to wear and look at! This creation measures 18" and is customizable to whatever length that you request of me. Cost is $45.00

Necklace: Sodalite & Bone...One for the guys!

Anyone could wear this, but I find that a lot of my designs are just
too feminine for the guys. I hope that this is appreciated. It measures about
17" currently and can be lengthened to fit any neck.

It is made of Sodalite and bone beads with Sterling Silver closure and links in the back. All spacers are Balienese handmade Sterling silver also.

Cost: $35.00

A Favorite Necklace, give it some love!

I just can't understand why I have had this necklace hangin around for so long. It is so dainty and pretty. Give it a look and fall in love! Email me with any questions, length is customizable for you.

Necklace: Red Jasper, Tiger's Eye, Goldstone

Here is a real renaissance beauty! I was inspired by our local renaissance fair here in PA. I used Tiger's eye 4mm & 6mm rounds and ovals, fire-polished glass, red jasper and goldstone beads to create tjos whimsical piece. The bottom center triangle shape is Natural Amber, with a unique crackle look to it. I may still add a tassle of sterling chains and gems in the middle, you should email me at if you are interested in purchasing this beauty! Apprx length is 16" and completely customizable to your needs.

Necklace: Peach Aventurine, Autumn Jasper, Moonstone

Here is a great dainty piece that I finished after a long day of designing, it isn't exactly symmetrical, but it is just as long on both sides, phew!

It contains Autumn jasper ovals, peach and silver moonstone, mother-of-pearl, riverstone, and a center pendant that is Sterling silver wire wrapped Peach Aventurine.

The center pendant can be detached and worn alone, and the necklace is versitile enough to be made into a bracelet, as well! I used small sterling rings that look and work like small keychains in the middle. You will love the versatiltiy of this piece!

$48.00 Approx length: 18" (adjustable to your requirements)

Necklace: Red, Gold and Green (Bloodstone, Garnet...)

Hey there!

Its another one of my new necklaces that you can detach the middle pendant from and wear it separately or with the necklace! You could also add another middle pendant for another look, or just connect it at the middle and wear the beads!
I used Bloodstone, Red Jasper, and Cat's Eye (fiber optic glass) beads in this design. The middle stone is agate, and the yellow/orange part is translucent, and beautiful to look at in the light! Length is approx 17" and is customizable by adding more links, just email me with any requests! I love custom orders! Price of this one is $35.00
