Labradorite Blue Flash Square Dangle Earrings ~~ Blue Flash





These are beautiful light flashing earrings. I took 1/2 inch square in size Labradorite gemstones, wire wrapped them in hand antiqued sterling silver filled wire and hung, here, from 1.5" sterling silver filled kidney wire earwires which I also oxidized.

In the right light the stones reflect the "blue flash" characteristic of Labradorite.

These will quickly become your go-to pair! I know they will for me. I wear quite a bit of gray.

See here for earrings and here for coordinating necklace.

A Bouquet ~~ Fairytale Earrings in Pink or Blue Lucite





May I bring you a bouquet this morning??? The world needs a pleasing aroma right now:) I stayed up way too late watching politics and went to bed with a heavy heart. So much personal rancor and vitriol have overtaken our country, a nation founded on freedom of speech and the right to pursue liberty.

Soft and feminine. Like a fairy tale. I love these lucite flower petals. I added a few layers of bead caps, freshwater pearls, and topped with a Swarovski crystal for decidedly delicate, light weight pair of earrings. A keeper for sure. Come on, Prince Charming!! Feminine and Delicate would make a lovely gift. 

 From the leverback wires, earrings hang 1.25 inches.

Extra Long Dangly Silver Statement Earrings ~~ Bling Bling SOLD out






I'm really getting into the antiqued silver. These oversized crystals are really fun and bohemian messy wire wrapped with antiqued silver wire for a truly artistic feel. I hung them on antiqued brushed silver metal discs and from 1.5" antiqued silver kidney wires for the full effect. Each piece is handmade to order, and due to the free form nature of wire wrapping, no two pairs will ever be the same.

From the top of these kidney wires, the earring measure four inches.

Want a complete set??? Add in this coordinating necklace for a full set. Chain is composed of antiqued silver plated brass soldered link chain and finished with small antiqued silver beads and a surgical steel clasp. Lovely.

Turquoise Teardrop Statement Necklace





Rustic Turquoise Short Statement Necklace, Genuine Turquoise Teardrop Minimal Necklace, Minimal Turquoise Brass


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 18.5 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 solid brass leverback earwires. Feel free to request another style wire at checkout.

Long Boho Turquoise Antiqued Copper Necklace, Rustic Turquoise Pendant Necklace, Messy Wire Wrap Copper Necklace SOLD





You may have noticed that I've been hand antiquing my raw copper wire. This leaves for some interesting hands. After the wire is cleaned up and polished it has la ovely sheen and won't transfer color.

I took this same wire, a genuine turquoise stone and messy wire wrapped the piece to a white keishi pearl. Hanging from an antiqued copper chain, the ensemble as shown measures a full 32.5 inches, but the chain's inner diameter is 30 inches.

Add on earrings for a complete set! Earrings are shown with the same white keishi pearls wire wrapped with copper wire and dangling from two inch kidney wires. I do have shorter wires if you prefer, 1.5" kidneys, french hooks, and leverback.
