Rapunzel SOLD

Rapunzel,  Rapunzel ....let down your hair...criest the smitten prince to the damsel trapped in the stairless tower. I love fairy tales! Can you see the yards of rippling golden hair Rapunzel wears in the Grimm Brother's story? I rarely use gold for my projects, but here's a golden creation that will capture your eyes. It glistens in the sun and catches light radiantly.

Hammered golden links, golden wire and faceted gold czech glass in multiple shapes--31 inches of gold. Let down your hair! SOLD

Arwen SOLD

I've been watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy again. Tolkien's books describe in great detail the delicate, intricate silver work of the Elves. A movie rendition of a book has to capture the author's intent with sound and image. The habitat of the elves is filmed with a softer lens and our ears capture strains of mystical notes, all evoking a feeling of loveliness.

As beautiful as Elven silver....Arwen is 38 inches of delicate freshwater rice pearls in a soft silvery gray subtly blended with tiny faceted czech glass. SOLD

Brianna's Pearls

Custom designed for a friend of mine by her husband for a very special Brianna's Pearls, a full set of freshwater pearls, swarovski crystals in amethyst and goldenshadow with complementary earrings. I was at a party the other day and saw Brianna wearing her pearls--she looked lovely!

I've heard from a number of you that I have been recalcitrant in my postings! A thousand lashes with a wet noodle. I think it's that pre-tax season, at least for us self-employed, when we're consumed with numbers, spreadsheets and grumbling about the IRS!

In a blog coming to you soon.....a new line of delicate silvery necklaces!
