Platinum Baroque Pearl Earrings in Oxidized Silver, Messy Wire Wrap, Oxidized Sterling Platinum Coin Pearl Earrings





Delightful in a baroque artisan style. I found these platinum bronzish baroque pearls at my local dealer. After sorting through an entire strand, I paired up coordinating sizes and shapes to bring you fabulous earrings. These are truly rustic with the smoothest side forward. I wire wrapped in hand oxidized sterling silver filled wire in a "messy" style,  then hung from oxidized sterling silver leverback wires. Ear pair is slightly different but will look very similar to the pairs depicted. Earrings hang about 1 inch from the bottom of the wires. With the french hooks, they fall 1.5" all together.

All coin pearls have one side that is naturally smoother than the other. I match up my pearls with the smoothest side forward in pairs which complement each other with the natural baroque markings. Pearls are 15mm in diameter.

Make a statement in a rustic artisan manner.

Embrace your Dark Side--Grays and Gummetal -- Blue Flash Labradorite Necklace and Earrings

Embrace your grays and blacks with these beautiful Blue Flash Labradorite necklace and earring pieces.






I have recently discovered "blue flash" Labradorite. When these stones catch the light they emit a stunning blue flash of light. I wire wrapped the larger 20mm labradorite stone in gunmetal wire and adorned it with tiny labradorite stones on both sides. All are seen dangling from a hammered gunmetal 15mm ring. Now, you get to choose how long you want your chain. Seen here in several lengths. Choose your preferred length below. Choose 00 and leave me a note at checkout if you have a different length in mind.  See necklace here.

Earrings are light weight and oh so charming. Let them glisten as you turn your head in the light.

Arizona Turquoise Statement Bracelet, Arizona Turquoise Chunky Bracelet, Turquoise Bronze Toggle Clasp Bracelet








These are the most beautiful Arizona turquoise stones. I immediately saw a bracelet in them. I strung enough beads interspersed with antiqued brass rondelle beads.

 Tip to tip bracelet measures 9 inches but due to the size of the beads the inner diameter fits smaller--2.25" across in diameter. Let me know if this is too long and you want me to take off a few beads. I have a relatively small wrist and it hangs a bit loose on my.

I even made earrings to accompany this piece. See here. Get your bracelet here!

Blue Green Bottle Glass Statement Necklace and Earrings







In love....I recently came into these recycled glass aquamarine blue beads. Reminiscent of old Coke bottles. The glass catches light beautifully. Can you imagine what a conversations piece they'll be as this amazing wire wrapped necklace. LOVE how these beads capture the light. I made one set for my beautiful sister-in-law and so enjoy seeing her wear it.

The rough texture is amazing. I interspersed the larger beads with smaller lighter blue recycled beads.

Earrings are messy wire wrapped in the same titanium wire. LOVE my pair.
