Antiqued Silver Minimal Layering Necklace






As an artist, naturally, I love my creations and hope they resonate with others as well. Sometimes I'm delightfully surprised to what degree some of pieces are a "hit" more than others. This long boho pendant has been a best seller in my Etsy shop with orders are a daily basis.

It's possible you like the ease of instant style? Just slide this 30 inch antiqued silver chain over your head and go.  I created a pendant from a hammered antiqued silver oval and a silver filigree diamond piece--a diamond wavy blank and a teardrop, all of which I hung here the chain. My chains are wired adjacent to the trigger style clasp with tiny beads. Minimal and versatile.

Mesmerized, too? Snatch yours up now here. See coordinating earrings here:

Cultivating, Silver Oak Leaf Earrings




In working with my literary friend Lancia, we collaborated on a line of jewelry which would complement her publication, Cultivating.

This oak leaf represent stability--its longevity and the wide-reaching branches of the tree over many a memory. Oak trees also symbolize longevity, humble beginnings, patience, faith, power, endurance, and strength. From the diminutive acorn, comes so much! Pearls are tangible representations of pain transformed into beauty.

Let these earrings speak to you of the patience needed to plant and cultivate a dream. Often years of what seems to be no movement, but in hindsight we see the maturity.

Light as a feather, these silver oak leaves leaves will glimmer by your ears and you'll hardly be able to feel them they're so light. I added a white Swarovski pearl for a bit of shimmer.  Hung here on surgical steel leverback wires and also antique silver 1.5" kidney wires, you may also choose from a range of earwires below.

Feel free to ask for a different color pearl/crystal! I'll let you know what I have.

Writer's Bracelet in Antiqued Silver, Pearl and Blood Red

Winter Charm Bracelet in Gunmetal and Silver, Writer's Bracelet, Cultivating Bracelet, Oak Leaf, Book, Fountain Pen, Red, Gunmetal, Pearl





Working with Lancia to create a winter themed Cultivating bracelet to speak to the writer we developed a charm bracelet which calls out our passions--autumn oak leaves, cream white coin pearls, a silver fountain pen nib, sparking faceted glass beads, a vintage style silver book, a pinecone, all with a drop of red. Rich. I recently began mixing metals in my work and as you can see from the images here, I combined dark black gunmetal and a shinier antiqued silver. Reminds me of a silvery Christmas.

Bracelet measures tip to tip 9 inches and is designed to clasp at your comfort point with the rest dangling down for fun.

These beads have a lovely eye-catching sparkle.

Black Onyx Jewelry, Earrings, Long Boho Necklace






Loving the rich intensity of black onyx. I coupled it with antiqued brass for a rustic boho feel.

I wire wrapped a larger onyx stone in layers of hand antiqued brass wire then hung it from a 30 inch chain. Fun.

These are fun boho earrings -- Black Onyx dangling from a hammered antiqued brass ring and a few antiqued brass bead caps. Hung here from artisan french hooks, you get to choose your favorite earwires, too. Here.
