Autumn is upon us Copper Coin Pearl Earrings and Necklace

Autumn is my favorite season of the year, crispy leaves, a nip in the air, and delightful coffee drinks:) These pearls reminded me of autumn days and colorful leaves. You??

Beautiful copper, burnt orange coin pearls with natural markings. Feminine and Neo Victorian. I wired each pair with antiqued copper pins and then dressed them up with minimal daisy spacers and Swarovski crystals. Earrings hang from your choice of earwire--leverback or french hooks. Pearls are 13 in diameter.  Each pair will be uniquely different with natural swirls and markings, but will look very similar to what is shown above. From the leverback wires as shown pearls fall 1.4 inches and from the elongated french hook wires, 1.7 inches.

Armor of God Bracelet, Silver Armor of God Charm Bracelet, Ephesians, Scripture Bracelet

What a fun a delightful reminder of our amour, our resources in Christ!! I added these metal alloy silver charms (nickel and lead free) to an antiqued silver chain. Then threw on a white freshwater coin pearl and Swarovski crystal for a feminine touch. Charms include: belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness,  shield of faith, helmet of salvation, shoes shod with the gospel of peace, sword of the spirit, and praying hands. I hand stamped Ephesians 6:10-19 on a shiny silver disc and added an open bible charm.

Chain is antiqued silver plated brass and wears well. I used an antiqued silver lobster claw clasp which adjusts anywhere on the chain. Bracelet as shown measures a full 9 inches.  The "extra" chain serves as a delightful dangle. Disc is hand stamped by me in a delightful "not-perfect" style:)

Bracelet measures exactly 9 inches and is designed to be adjusted to the wearer's circumference.

Black Rainbow Obsidian Bar Necklace, 3 Bead Black Bar Necklace, Antique Silver Obsidian Necklace, Minimal

These are lovely shimmery AAA grade Rainbow Obsidian beads which glimmer when they catch the light. I simply strung 5 shimmery black beads on a sturdy antiqued silver wire to a light weight (strong) antiqued silver chain. When positioned to catch the light you'll see the notorious rainbow shimmer which makes this gemstone so famous!!! Necklace shown measures 18 inches.

Rainbow Obsidian is black obsidian that, when polished and exposed to a strong light, shows bands of rainbow colors. Rainbow obsidian is said to be the stone used by Nostradamus to foresee future events. Rainbow obsidian is particularly powerful in meditation to dissolve shock, fear or barriers.

All Magpies are made by me in my home studio. All metals used are nickel and lead free.

Rainbow Fluorite Chip Earrings, Fluorite Nugget Earrings, Fluorite Pendant

What an intriguing stone!! I was mesmerized in the gem store with the streaks of color against the translucent background, especialy when held up to the light. These pictures show several different styles of these gorgeous earrings. Choose your favorite ear wires, too.  The pictures above simply don't capture their beauty.

Fluorite is considered to absorb and neutralize negative energy and stress. An excellent learning aid, Fluorite is alleged to increase powers of concentration, self-confidence and helps in decision-making. It encourages positivity, balances the energies, and improves balance and coordination, both physically and mentally.

I made earrings as small as one fluorite chip, three stacked chips, or even a pair with three smaller green stacked chips. Choose below.

Each stone has natural markings and is uniquely different, but will look very similar to the ones pictured above. These stones have a translucent clear base with hints of  purple, green, gray and blue.
