Scent of Lavendar ~~ Purple Crazy Lace Agate and Silver Coin Pearl Long Statement Necklace SOLD


Calling all of you purple lovers!!! I found my favorite Crazy Lace Agate in purple. These are gorgeous stones with natural markings and the loveliest shades of purple. I paired the agate with soft silvery gray cultured pearls, Swarovski crystal, antiqued silver hammered links, and titanium colored wire for a necklace that keeps on giving. Wears long at 36 inches, but I am amenable to altering if you need a shorter length:)

In a Nutshell~~Brown Crazy Lace Agate Tree of Life Woodland Statement Necklace SOLD


I woke up in the middle of the night thinking of a name for this necklace....In a nutshell. The vintage bronze tree of life pendant, and nut-brown crazy lace agate reminded me of how that mighty tree originated from a small brown nut. I tucked some creamy pearls and carved wooden spacers into the design. And with the hammered bronze toggle clasp, Nutshell comes in right at 19 inches.

Cadmium Oasis Necklace Set SOLD



Gorgeous, orange, striated magnesite large beads are offset with faceted turquoise rondelles and antiqued silver spacers, all directing our attention to the turquoise magnesite cross. Necklace is 17.5 inches long (I could add an extender chain if you desire.), and is finished in a fine quality silver plate.

Isn't that what the Easter season is all about? It all comes back to the cross and the completed work on Calvary when Jesus triumphed over sin once and forever! He leads us to an oasis in the middle of the desert, a place of rest, refreshments and renewal.

Necklace $32, Earring $10
