Long Boho Blue Turquoise Necklace and Long Dangle Turquoise Ball Kidney Style Earrings





What a nice smooth turquoise magnesite stone! I wire wrapped it with antiqued silver titanium copper core wire in the popular "messy" style and suspended from a 30 inch chunky antiqued silver soldered link chain. Lovely. Pendant falls about two inches and the chain measures a full 30 inches but I'd be happy to shorten at your request. Stone diameter is 2 inches.

I created these long boho earrings to match the necklace.  They are designed from turquoise magnesite and wire wrapped in the popular "messy" style in antiqued silver wire.

Let's Rock this Party ~~ Chunky Clear Quartz Crystal Colorful Statement Bracelet






Had a wonderful time today at GAI, Gemological Institute of America right up the street in Carlsbad. Wow.  Talk about shiny things. My inner Magpie was Flapping!!!

I LOVE raw rock quartz crystal! I think these smooth crystal nuggets with their natural striations are just beautiful, especially when they catch the light. I added in colorful turquoise and orange Swarovski crystals and a large chunky toggle clasp.

Bracelet measures 9 inches from tip to tip, but due to the large diameter of the beads, it hangs pleasantly loose on my standard 7 inch wrist.

Add on coordinating earrings in a high end quartz crystal ovals, tipped with translucent tangerine Swarovski crystals. Earrings are hung here on 1.5" silver plated kidney wires and fall 2" from the top of the wire. Feel free to request a different style wire.

When you buy from MagpieMadnessJewelry, you are getting quality handcrafted jewelry, excellent customer service, and a fair and reasonable price.

Southwestern Gold ~~ Genuine Turquoise Teadrop Minimal Beaded Antiqued Brass Statement Necklace SOLD





This is a beautiful necklace! I strung genuine Turquoise petite teardrops, interspaced with bronze rondel beads, on a strong 7 layer beading string to antiqued brass textured chain for a simple, minimalistic statement. Sometimes these beads are referred to as "dancing" as they will flip up or down as you lay them. It's really how you prefer to wear your necklace.

The necklace as finished measures 18 inches. I will be happy to add an extender chain at your request. Make a note at checkout. Likewise, I can also shorter. However, with the lobster trigger clasp, you can shorten to your preferred length depending on your neckline.

I created coordinating earrings by wrapping them in hand antiqued brass wire. Shown here with 1.25 inch solid brass earwires. Feel free to request leverback style wires. I choose two teardrops which I believe best matched in terms of color and size:) I have beads to only make two of these darling necklaces.

Vintage Rose ~~ Antiqued Pink Baroque Pearl Sterling Necklace, Toggle Bracelet and Earrings






These are beautiful natural pink baroque pearls. Each one is different--you'll observe natural pearl formations, all with a glossy lustrous sheen.

Bracelet as shown measures 8 inches in length. If you need this longer/shorter I can add or remove a bead. The inner diameter will be smaller since these are chunky pearls. I added a small side dangle with the same Antiqued Pink Swarovski crystals.

Coordinating earrings are shown with the same lovely pearls hanging from 1.25 inch sterling silver kidney wires.  See bracelet here and necklace here.

Wire is sterling silver filled. Beads are natural pink baroque about 10mm wide and 14mm long.
