Silver Coin Pearl Oxidized Sterling Silver Filled Earrings








Delightful rustic every day pair of classy earrings with a twist. I wire wrapped in sterling silver filled wire in a "messy" style, oxidized for an antiqued finish then hung from oxidized sterling silver filled rounded wires. Ear pair is slightly different but will look very similar to the pair depicted. You can choose the 1.5" kidney wire, but know that they are oxidized silver plate, not sterling; however, they wear very well. Earrings hang about 3/4 of an inch from the bottom of the wires. With the french hooks, they fall 1.5" all together.

These will quickly become your go-to pair! See on Etsy here

Or see necklace here. It's a slightly larger pearl on 24 inches of antiqued silver chain.

Peru Blue Opal Y Drop Statement Necklace and Earring Set






In my last order of supplies and beads from my supplier, I decided to try these blue Peruvian Opal stone beads. I wasn't exactly sure how I'd be using them at first. After staring at the beads for days my eyes were captured by neighboring pearls that I wire wire wrapping and I moved in a creative "messy" direction. The necklace is asymmetrical. 

With a front S-hook clasp, I created a long Y drop out of the Peruvian opal and glossy white natural coin pearl. I added in a few Azore Swarovski crystals, an antiqued silver connector bead and wired each bead in a "messy" style. The bunched up antiqued silver wire makes this design sing. Finished at the neck in antiqued silver chain, the necklace measures a full 18 inches then falls an additional 2.5 inches with the Y drop. 

Coordinating Earrings measure almost 2 inches from the top of antiqued silver leverback wires. Let me know at checkout if you'd rather have french hooks.

Autumn Awareness ~~ Rustic Orange Aventurine Antiqued Copper Wire Wrapped Necklace SOLD




Rustic Orange Aventurine Antiqued Copper Wire Wrapped Necklace, Rustic Burnt Orange Artisan Copper Necklace


Faceted orange Aventurine beads are wire wrapped in a "messy" style in hand antiqued copper wire. This is an interesting stone which some believe increases optimism and self confidence. I don't know about the stone, but this snazzy design evokes self confidence. 

Necklace measures 17 inches plus has an extra inch of extender chain (I can definitely add more more at your request.)
Add on matching earrings for a complete set! Earrings as shown measure 2" from the top of the leverback wires. I'd be happy to substitute french hooks or short leverback wires if you prefer. Please leave note at checkout. 

~~DETAILS/DIMENSIONS:Beads are 18mm orange red Aventurine. Wire is hand antiqued raw copper wire.

Lemon Stone Statement Necklace SOLD



What do you do when you have oodles of lemons and a few limes? Why, make lemonade of course. These days I sweeten mine with a touch of coconut sugar and stevia instead of sugar. It's a healthier route to take and we avoid sugar around our home. As tasty as it can be it's a toxin to our bodies. Did you know that arsenic is also sweet:)??

Anyway, I have had a few strands of these smooth silky lemon stone beads in my stash for eons and just figured out what to make. A classy short statement necklace. Not everyone will have the panache to carry this off, but just the right woman will!!

Necklace is finished in sterling silver filled findings and measures 16 inches. I added a four inch extender chain, also sterling silver filled, for stylistic flexibility. Because this necklace is such a statement I did not make earrings. I'd suggest a small silver pair.

Amazonite Dangle Earrings




Amazonite Antiqued Silver Long Earrings 

Love this stone--the blues contrasted with silver. Reminds me of the water--calm and serene. I threaded the earrings with antiqued silver headpins and hung from antiqued silver 1.5" kidney wires and silver leverback style wires. But...choose your ear wire preference at checkout. With the kidney wires, earrings hang right over 2 inches.

Over the Moon ~~ Labradorite and Moonstone Sterling Statement Bracelet

Moonstone and Labradorite Chunky Statement Bracelet, Labradorite and Moonstone Sterling Bracelet





Love. Love. Love. I strung light capturing Moonstone and Labradorite on a very strong 21 filament bead string to a soldered link sterling silver filled chain for an adjustable statement. Bracelet is adjustable and measures 7.5" to 9". I have a small sized wrist and it fits comfortably loose at the smallest settings for me. Extra chain hangs down as a dangle and features a labradorite dangle, a freshwater pearl and a stamped Magpie.
