I fell in love with this shade of lime green this year. I wire wrapped these gorgeous faceted lime green turquoise magnesite teardrops with lashings of non-tarnishing silver wire and hung from silver plated brass leverback earwires. Really fun and just a little bit different!!! Earrings hang about 1.5 inches from leverbacks. Choose your earwire style of preference at checkout.

Long Boho Vintage Brass Red Pendant Necklace and Earrings






One of my best selling, most asked for necklaces has been the Long Boho chain with a dark red pendant. Sadly, these sold out and I couldn't find the stones anywhere to make more.

Imagine my delight when I discovered these red Imperial Jasper stones at one of my online supplier!!! These stones are a lighter shade of red and mottled with natural markings and streaks of underlying creamy striations. Created in the boho style, necklace falls 30 inches to the pendant, then an additional 2 more inches. Love.

The Comforter ~ Gunmetal Cross and Dove Necklace



I  Love these charms--a gothic style gunmetal black cross with a hovering dove and side crystal dangle. As a Christian, I feel comforted by the combination of the Holy Spirit (dove) and Cross (Jesus) in harmony. I added the Swarovski crystal for a decidedly feminine touch. Shown here, the chain falls to a nice 30 inches, but feel free to indicate another length.

I LOVE Books Long Boho Necklace, I Heart Books, Book Lovers Necklace






I absolutely love books. I've had a life long passion with the printed page. Don't give me an e-book. I want to feel the pages move with my fingers.

As a jewelry designer I'm always thinking of how we can wear our passions:) I decided to hand stamp "I (heart) Books" on an antiqued silver plated brass 1" disc. I added a sparking crystal, an open book charm and created an optional silver tag in which you can add on the initials of the book lover in your life.

Brass chain is antiqued brass and wears well. Crystal is Swarovski. Chains are finished adjacent to the lobster clasp with tiny beads. Discs are hand stamped by me in a delightful "not-perfect" style:)

Necklaces measure 30" in length then fall about 2 more inches with the cluster pendant.  From the first drop down box below, choose if you want the necklace as seen above, or with an extra charm.

Please make a note at checkout regarding what two initials you want stamped on your teardrop tag. You may also choose to add on an extra tag. I can only squeeze in 2 initials per tag.

See silver here or brass version here
All Magpies come charmingly gift wrapped and ready for giving.
