Mesmerize: Large Clear Quartz Crystal Pendant Necklace on a Delicate Gunmetal Chain










Quartz Crystal has long been a favorite stone of mine. I love the smooth feeling of this large stone and clear transparency. Mystical.  A product of nature's pressure and heat. Polished to perfection. I wire wrapped in fine gunmetal wire in the popular "messy" style.

I hung the pendant from first a hammered gunmetal 20mm ring then a long delicate gunmetal chain. The chain is finished with beads adjacent to the lobster clasp. Chain is 30 inches long to the pendant, then falls an additional 2 inches. Make your winter ensembles sing.


See pendant here. Or these earrings (long or short) can be worn alone or coordinate!

Yellow! OOAK Large Yellow Agate Teardrop Pendant Boho Style Necklace





Pop of color which reflects beautifully against antiqued silver. I wire wrapped the OOAK banded yellow Agate pendant with antiqued silver wire and suspended it from a chunky textured antiqued silver plated soldered link brass chain (wears very well!). This chain does not have a clasp and is designed to slide right over your head. However, if you really want a clasp, mention so at checkout and I'll add one. Necklace shown falls 30 inches to the pendant. Indicate an alternative length in the notes at checkout!


I only have one! See here.See matching earrings here

Ballerina Slipper Earrings, Ballet Shoe Earrings, Pink Ballet Earrings, Dangle, Toe Shoe Earrings, Gift for Girl,






My daughter is 11. So many of her friends are wrapped up (literally) in the world of ballet. I thought these ballerina slipper earrings would make a wonderful gif.

These earrings are so cute! I simply hung the slippers from both leverback or 1.25" silver plated brass wires. From the top of the lever back wires they fall right at 1.5 inches. Or... choose french hook wires or the longer kidney wires below.

Use the checkout option to add on the Swarovski crystal or keep the earrings plain.  Crystal seen in the images above is pale antiqued pink. I have many other color choices so if there is a particular color you want, please message me.

Around the World in 80 Days Long Brass Boho Necklace




My children are performing in this theatre production this fall. It's quite an adventure for the whole family. Some of the moms suggested that I try stamping out a disc to celebrate our achievements. Voila.

I hand stamped Around the World in 80 days  on both a 1.25"and  1" brass discs, antiqued and distressed the disc and added a bronze Eiffel tower charm and sparkling Swarovski crystal for a cluster pendant necklace. Charming. Other charm options would be an antiqued open book, key (not shown), boot, arrow, and now a verdigris elephant. Add on a side teardrop tag with your child's initials.

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:) Charms are antiqued bronze.

Necklaces measure 30 inches to the pendant then falls an additional 1.25 inch. Let me know if you want a shorter chain!!!!

Have a dude who just might not want a necklace? What about a keychain?

See necklace with larger 1.25" disc here and the smaller 1"disc here.

Come see one of our performances November 10-12th!!

All Magpies come charmingly gift wrapped and ready for giving.

Tiger's Eye Teardrop Pendant Statement Necklace SOLD





This is a fabulous Tiger's Eye stone teardrop with a smooth rounded face. I simply wire wrapped it with antiqued silver wire to an antiqued silver hammered 15mm ring and hung from antiqued silver chain. I wired in more Tiger's Eye gemstone beads up the sides. Necklace as shown measures 20 inches to the pendant but is fully adjustable.

I wired coordinating earrings with the same brown Tiger's Eye beads (8mm beads) to smaller hammered silver rings and hung (here) from 1.25" antiqued silver kidney wires. Feel free to message me at checkout for a different style earners--french hook, lever back, or 2" kidney.

See necklace here and bracelet here.


This is a powerful stone that aids harmony and balance, and helps you to release fear and anxiety. It stimulates taking action, and helps you to make decisions with discernment and understanding, and unclouded by your emotions. It enhances creativity. This natural crystal balances the brain, so it may be of benefit to help those who are suffering from mental disease or with personality disorders."

In Christ Alone, Silver Hand Stamped Hymn Necklace, Hand Stamped In Christ






In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

Make this vintage style silver necklace your declaration and prayer. I hand stamped this declaration on an antiqued silver 1" disc.  My hope is in Chtist Alone!

It is Well with my Soul Bangle Bracelets





It is Well with My Soul, Bronze Hand Stamped Hymn Bangle Bracelet, Well with My Soul Bracelet, Faith

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul
It is well
With my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul

I find great comfort in Horatio Spafford's lyrics. I so admire his faith in the midst of great personal tragedy. Five years ago after months of physical challenges I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Wow, what a setback. God's grace has been more than enough. I found a ketogenic paleo diet right at this time and was able to manage the MS quite successfully for the past four years without the standard drugs. Yes, I have ups and downs. Right now my legs are giving me some difficulty, but I stretch every morning at the Y and rejoice in the victory I have in Christ.

Make this vintage style bronze bangle bracelet your declaration and prayer. I hand stamped this declaration on an antiqued bronze 1" disc.  My soul is made well by the cross! I added an antiqued bronze cross, chunky white baroque pearl, and a sparkling  bronze Swarovski crystal to complete the theme. Bangle is designed to slide right over your hand and hang loose.
