Necklace measures 28 inches to the pendant then falls an additional 1 inch. Please let me know at checkout if you need an alternative length. I can make matching earrings if you like with the same blue crystals and/or pearls. Buy on Etsy here.

Setting Sunset Salsa

Peach Coral and Blue Turquoise Statement Necklace, Triple Layer~~ Sunset Sundown Salsa

How many times has the sun set in your life? I'm not sure I want to admit how many I've lived through. How often have you simply stopped to take in the breathtaking beauty of the full sun slipping through the darkening sky and just danced for joy? I know I don't pause nearly often enough to appreciate the grandeur of the setting sun. If God knows the very number of hairs on our heads, and if our days are numbered, too, then He also ordains each and every sunset. Stop a moment. Stop today. Pause as the sinking sun goes to bed and know that God loves you. And dance:)

Setting Sunset Salsa measure 17 inches on the inner diameter, falls 19" on the outside diameter, plus I've added a 2" extender chain. Natural coral, turquoise magnesite and Swarovski crystals, all finished with a high quality silver plate swivel lobster clasp.

Necklace $42, Earrings $12 There's only 1 so if the sunset speaks to you, order right away:)

Distant Shores


The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice. Psalm 97:1

Chunky carved Amazonite, glossy white coin pearls, sparkly Swarovski crystals, faceted quartz, and muted antiqued silver hammered links wired with non-tarnishing titanium silver reminded me of distant shores, of frothy waves lapping rocky cliffs, of promise and renewal. Let the earth be glad! 

Necklace measures 29 inches and is finished with an antiqued silver toggle clasp. Necklace $51; Earrings $15.  I can make adjustments if you need this a wee bit longer.

All Magpies come gift wrapped and ready for giving:) Hint, hint:)

Heirloom Bijou

Heirloom Bijou

Love the vintage, heirloom, picture of merging gold and vintage brass. It's new venture for me--mixing metal. I tend to be a purist in that department and am branching out!!

So beautiful, these freshwater creamy pearls. I wire wrapped them in gold plated wire, merged the gold tones with vintage bronze by adding a hammered gold focal bead, Swarovski crystals, and a dainty vintage brass chain. Necklace is finished adjacent to the clasp with tiny creamy Swarovski pearls for a distinct feminine touch.

Coordinating earrings are shown on vintage brass leverback earwires, but feel free to request a different style wire at checkout!
