Fly high wearing this beautiful hand stamped matte silver pendant cluster necklace. I added a silver double sided etched wing, a brilliant blue Swarovski crystal to complete the set.
I hand stamped two words: Soar and Free on a matte silver 1.2" disc--added a silver wing, and the crystal to a long antiqued soldered link silver plated brass chain. This chain wears very well. Chain is finished adjacent to the lobster clasp with tiny white Swarovski pearls. I created my long chain necklaces at 30 inches but can certainly shorten/lengthen at your request!

I created this necklace as the request of a friend whose mother has been battling breast cancer. She wanted to make a statement for Breast Cancer Awareness in a fun and fashionable manner.
I hand stamped two words: Brave and Hope on a matte silver 1.2" disc--added a Pink Rhinestone Awareness ribbon, and a lovely white freshwater teardrop pearl to a long antiqued soldered link silver plated brass chain. This chain wears very well. Chain is finished adjacent to the lobster clasp with tiny white Swarovski pearls. I created my long chain necklaces at 30 inches but can certainly shorten/lengthen at your request!

To Make Him Known Black Leather and Silver Disc Bookmark, Classical Conversations Leather Bookmark, Antique Silver Charm Bookmark
As a jewelry designer I'm always thinking of how we can wear our passions:) I decided to hand stamp "to make Him known" on a 1.1" disc and create jewelry~~earrings, necklaces, a Keychain, black leather and silver bookmarks.
Each disc is antiqued silver plated brass which I have hand stamped. One one end is "To know God" and the other end declares, "To make Him known". I hand cut genuine leather into strips and affixed them to antiqued silver plated brass rings. Charms include a vintage silver open book charm, a silver alloy key, a Swarovski crystal and a silver plated brass drop hand stamped with "CC".
Want something special hand stamped on the back of the discs? Use this link to add this option to your bookmark.
All Magpies come charmingly gift wrapped and ready for giving.

I love Classical Conversations! My children are completing our 3rd year (4th and 6th grades respectively) and I only wish I'd discovered this fabulous curriculum earlier.
As a jewelry designer I'm always thinking of how we can wear our passions:) I decided to hand stamp "to make Him known" on a 1" disc and create jewelry~~earrings, necklaces, a Keychain, and now a bookmark at the request of a lovely lady within the CC community.
Each disc is solid brass which I have hand antiqued and distressed (I get to bang it with a hammer!) One one end reads "To know God" and the other end declares, "To make Him known". I hand cut genuine leather into strips and affixed them to brass rings. Charms include a vintage bronze leaf charm, a vintage bronze cross, a vintage bronze open book, a vintage bronze key, a Swarovski crystal and a brass teardrop hand stamped with "CC". All bookmarks come with the key, but choose your preferred additional charm at checkout.

Gorgeous luminescent Chalcedony semi-precious gemstones wire wrapped with stainless steel wire (the only wire thin enough to string through these beads) to a lovely textured antiqued silver chain. So pretty. I wired in Swarovski crystals for a wee bit of bling.
Chalcedony is so beautiful with it's transparent qualities and can range in price from mid to rather high end numbers. I was able to obtain these beads far under market value which is why I can offer the necklaces at such a low price.
Necklace has an inner diameter of 30 inches then falls an additional 3 inches with the drop.
Earrings are also wired on stainless steel wire and hung from the same matte silver surgical steel kidney wires which measure about 1.25".
See the pink necklace on Etsy here. And the minty green version here.

Long Boho Turquoise Cluster Necklace, Long Boho Blue and Orange Turquoise Cluster Necklace, Cluster Pendant
Loving the pop of color with these blue and orange turquoise magnesite stones to which I adjoined a large Swarovski crystal and a white baroque pearl. I hung the cluster from 30 inches of antique silver plated brass soldered link chain. This is a cluster necklace which will serve you well. Pendant falls an additional 3 inches from the chain.
Super fun and colorful.

Gorgeous luminescent Chalcedony in minty green. So pretty. These have such a fine hole for beading that I was able to wire wrap them with a fine gauge stainless steel wire in the fashionable messy style.
Beads are about 16mm wide and 15mm tall. Hung, as shown here, from 1.5 antiqued silver earwires they fall almost 2.5 inches long.
