A Lovely Stone Bracelet

I finally found myself in the mood to make a new bracelet! For this bracelet, I decided to use some sterling silver link chain that I have had laying around. I used two shapes of briolettes, round pearls, rondelles and ovals; as a result, this bracelet has lots of texture.

I'm Back With a New Pair of Earrings!

Gold Pearl Swarovski
Yes, I am still alive and kicking in the beautiful Pacific Northwest! And yes, it's been a long time since my last post. But I am back now, and I have a lovely pair of earrings to share. I made these blossom earrings after I received a request for a similar pair, the other pair consisting of tiny peacock pearls. The gold Swarovski pearls pair nicely with the sterling silver wire for a two-tone combination.

Lab and Smoky Quartz Clusters of Joy!

Labradorite and Smoky Quartz EarringsI have a couple strands of swirl briolettes that I purchased from the Gem Faire awhile ago. They are beautifully faceted and unique, and I decided to pair them with tiny labradorite rondelles. The rondelles are attached to tiny, sterling silver ball headpins that were made using a butane torch. I believe the smoky quartz and labradorite go well together; I hope you agree!
