Blue Green Earth-Like Agate Pendant





You asked. Blue Green Agate. 3 stones from which to choose. Shorter style necklace wire wrapped in antiqued silver. 

I've had these stones for quite some time and hadn't been quite sure how to feature them properly. Voila, inspiration struck today. I wire wrapped each stone in antiqued silver wire and suspended from an antiqued silver chain. Charming. 

 Each stone has beautiful features. These blue agate gemstones do not have the typical rough druzy texture, but do have wonderful planet-earth like markings. 

First some first choose: Choose stone A, B, or C (left to right) in the drop down box on my site. Also choose your preferred length. Necklaces shown are on 18 inch chains. This picture shows you the front and back of each stone. See/buy here!

Artisan Long Boho Wood and Turquoise Tassel Pendant Necklace, Rustic Turquoise Wood Brass Pendant Long Necklace





A bit on the "out there" side of artisan wire wrapping. My daughter (age 10) thinks I'm making progressing becoming "hip". I wire wrapped a genuine turquoise stone to a larger four sided wooden bead, then made a fun multi-layered antiqued brass tassel. Pendant falls 6 whole inches. I wired in a few oval rings in the 30 inch chain for some off sided balance. Really fun.

I have two pair of earrings which coordinate well. You see brass tassels in these pictures (which you can buy below) or the same wooden beads as the pendant here,

Long Boho Turquoise Cluster Necklace, Long Boho Blue and Red Coral Cluster Necklace, Cluster Pendant, USA






 Colorful, southwester, patriotic! s=

Loving the pop of color with these blue turquoise magnesite and red coral stones to which I adjoined a large Swarovski crystal and a white baroque coin 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.

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,

It is well

It is well, it is well with my soul

Make this vintage style copper necklace your declaration and prayer. I hand stamped this declaration on a solid 1" antiqued copper disc which I hand antiqued and distressed.

Chain is 30 inches antiqued copper plated brass and will wear very well.

Soft Pink Petite Pearl Long Rope Necklace in Sterling





I find this pale shade of antiqued pink infused with the romance of bygone eras--preserved roses, old books, hope and longing. It was with great delight that I strung soft pale pink freshwater pearls with fire polished czech glass crystals . Sweet and refreshing. 

Necklace measures 46 inches in length and is finished with a sterling silver lobster clasp. Wear long, doubled, or tripled. I created coordinating earrings with the same creamy pale pink coin pearls wired on sterling silver filled wire. Earrings fall 1.25 inches from the top of the french hooks.

Classical Conversations Memory Master Hand Stamped Silver Necklace






I love Classical Conversations! My children now in our 4th year (5th and 7th grades respectively) and I only wish I'd discovered this fabulous curriculum earlier.

My daughter is going to press through to Memory Masters this year. I wanted to honor her hard work and thought some of you moms might like to do so too.

I hand stamped Memory Master around the curve of the disc then added CC  in the middle. Off the side is a teardrop tag on which I stamped the actual cycle mastered 1, 2, or 3. Use the drop down option below to select how many tags you need. I'm creating one for each year my daughter made memory masters. I can either hand stamp I, II, or III on the tags or the actual year. Please let me know at checkout!!

NOTE: Some of you are ordering all 3 cycles, but only want Cycle 2 on the necklace and the other cycles in a little bag to attach later! Please make a note at checkout if you want these separate, otherwise, I will attach all the Cycle charms you buy:)

For all you hard working MOMS, I made one for you, too!!! See here.

Silver chain is antiqued silver plated soldered link brass. Crystals are Swarovski. Chains are finished adjacent to the lobster clasp with antiqued silver plated brass beads.

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

See my hand stamped To Make Him Known silver version with a cross here
