Autumn Mountain Stream





I found myself thinking of Tennessee the other day, of hiking up the mountains beyond Chattanooga, deep in the hills, until we'd come to a stream trickling placidly through the rocks. It was peaceful and serene. I'd find an old log where I could comfortably perch and watch the leaves drop into the crystal clear water and drift downwards out of sight. Browns, greens, clear bits of sky. Beauty.

Autumn Mountain Stream tried to capture a bit of this serenity with three layers of stone sprinkled with Swarovski crystals. The inner diameter is 15 inches and the outer layers falls 18 inches. If you need a greater length I can add in an extender chain. Necklace $33; Earrings $12

Red Rose, Snow White~~Red Coral, Rock Crystal and White Pearl Long Necklace




A favorite fairy tale of mine, Snow White; Rose Red, is German tale collected by the Grimm brothers. In the story, the girls are sweet and kind and rescue a bear, who it turns out, is a prince under the spell of a wicked dwarf. I was inspired by the sisters, Rose Red, who is obviously an extrovert who loves to play outside, and Snow White, the indoor type of girl.

Snow White Rose Red tried to capture this tale with deep red coral, and innocent, sweet white coin pearls. I added in clear faceted rock quartz crystal, to represent the stones the dwarf stole from the bear. I worked in antiqued silver hammered links, and a few extra crystals! 32.5 inches in length.  Necklace $75; Earrings $15

I did make another pair of earrings in red coral, antiqued hammered silver links and tiny czech glass pearls, if you'd prefer red.Click here to buy on Etsy.
