Peach Raw Quartz Cluster Pendant, Reflective Raw Quartz, Wire Wrap, Silver, raw quartz point cluster pendant







I  recently found these beautiful raw peach quartz crystal point beads. I think they appealed to the inner hippie in me:)  I wire wrapped each bead in silver plated copper core wire and hung the entire tassel from this attractive silver plated brass curb chain--30 inches in all. I did not add a clasp, but could do so at your request. I can also shorten if you like. My though was a simple necklace that just slide over my head.

Aqua Czech Glass Long Dangle Earrings, Aquamarine Long Earrings, Kidney Style Earrings






I don't have words. These aqua blue Czech glass beaded earrings are stunning when the light catches their many facets. 

These are the most beautiful aqua/turquoise blue transparent sun-catching earrings. I created them from 10mm (and 4mm) fire polished Preciosia czech glass which glimmers in the lights. Layered with antiqued silver plated brass bead caps and hung from your choice of antiqued silver plated kidney wires, french hooks or leverback wires. The wired bead hangs close to an inch from the wire you select; from a 1.5" kidney wire, it will fall a 2.2 inches.

Tawny Port Pearl Earrings, Maroon, Burgundy, Antiqued Silver Swarovski Pearl Earrings, Leverback, Kidney Wire






These are charming enough to wear everyday! Soft Tawny Port (2017 color) Swarovski pearls are adorned with a Swarovski crystal and antiqued silver decorative bits and dangle from the earwire of your preference. I love the 1.5" antiqued kidney wires, myself, as they peep out from the edges of my hair, but you may prefer the leverback or french hooks. With the 1.5" kidney wires earrings fall 2.25" and with the lever back they fall 1.25".

Wear with the 2017 color palate for a stunning wardrobe.  Get your pair here!

Mystical Peach Raw Quartz Cluster Pendant and Earrings






Sunday evening teaser for all you football widows:) 

Mystical raw quartz point cluster pendant ~~   I recently found these beautiful raw peach quartz crystal point beads. I think they appealed to the inner hippie in me:) I wire wrapped each bead in silver plated copper core wire and hung the entire tassel from this attractive silver plated brass curb chain--30 inches in all. I did not add a clasp, but could do so at your request. I can also shorten if you like. My though was a simple necklace that just slide over my head.  

I wire wrapped more stones in silver plated copper core wire and hung here, from kidney wires, but you choose wha you like best.  Sort of Boho, Hippie, you know;) Earrings hang from silver plated brass kidney wires and fall almost 2.5 inches from the top of the wire.

It is Well with my Soul hand stamped Long Boho Pendant Necklace

It is Well with My Soul, Silver Hand Stamped Hymn Necklace, Hand Stamped Well with My Soul Necklace






When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul
It is well
With my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul

I find great comfort in Horatio Spafford's lyrics. I so admire his faith in the midst of great personal tragedy. Four years ago after months of physical challenges I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Wow, what a setback. God's grace has been more than enough. I found a ketogenic paleo diet right at this time and was able to manage the MS quite successfully for the past four years without the standard drugs. Yes, I have ups and downs. Right now my legs are giving me some difficulty, but I stretch every morning at the Y and rejoice in the victory I have in Christ.

Make this vintage style silver necklace your declaration and prayer. I hand stamped this declaration on an antiqued silver 1" disc.  My soul is made well by the cross! I added a delicate sterling silver cross, petite white coin pearl, and a sparkling  Swarovski crystal to complete the theme. Chain is 30 inches antiqued silver plated brass soldered link and will wear very well.

Pink Rhodochrosite Cluster Earrings, Antiqued Pink Rhodochrosite Earrings, Rhodochrosite Cluster Earrings






Rhodochrosite~~the love stone. Rhodochrosite is considered to be a powerful love stone. ... If you are single, Rhodochrosite is believed to be able to attract your soul mate.The name of this stone literally means “red colored” (from Greek, rhodon, meaning “rose” and chroma, meaning“color”).

Gorgeous. I wire wrapped these Rhodochrosite gemstone chip beads in antiqued silver (copper core) wire along with baroque white pearls and interwove a few Swarovski crystals for a bit of subtle bling. Pendant cluster falls 2.5 inches. Stunning. Chain is soldered link antiqued silver plated brass and wears so well. All my chains are finished with a surgical steel lobster clasp and tiny white Swarovski pearls adjacent to the clasp. 

I also wire wrapped these Rhodochrosite gemstone chip beads and more Swarovski crystals in antiqued silver (copper core) wire for a pair of fabulous statement earrings. Earrings fall 1.75 inches from the end of the earwire, so with the 1.5" kidney wires as shown, they fall 3 inches.

Blue Turquoise Slab Pendants on Long Skinny Brass Chain





Need a colorful addition to your fall line-up?? These may be just the ticket. I found this string of blue turquoise slab stones and knew they'd make great pendants. I wired in antiqued brass and hung from a 30 inch antiqued brass chain. Simple. Colorful. I have five different stones. From my easy shop, you can choose which stone you'd like to have at checkout.

These stones are sometimes called Imperial Jasper. Basically, these are fancy words for imitation turquoise--a genuine stone which has been dyed in the commonly identified turquoise markings.

Get yours here! Two stones left!!

Long Boho Olive Turquoise Cluster Necklace, Long Boho Olive Green Turquoise Necklace, Cluster Pendant






It all begins with a custom order request. Could you make..... and voila, sometimes I ended up falling in love with what I made, all at someone else's idea. Here you have it. 30 inches of matte antique silver plated brass soldered link chain culminating in a 2.5" cluster pendant of additional chain. I wire wrapped olive green turquoise teardrops to the chain and tucked in a few 6mm Swarovski crystals and corrugated antiqued silver beads. Charming. This is a cluster necklace which will serve you well. Necklace slides right over your head. But...if you want a clasp, feel free to make a note at checkout.
