Pale Blue Raw Quartz Cluster Pendant Pendant Necklace and Dangle Earrings

I  recently found these beautiful pale aqua blue quartz crystal point beads. I think they appealed to the inner hippie in me:)  I wire wrapped each bead in antiqued silver plated copper core wire, worked in a few Swarovski Crystals and hung the entire tassel from double rings then from this attractive soldered link antiqued silver  chain--30 inches in all. I did not add a clasp, but could do so at your request. I can also shorten if you like.

My thought was a simple necklace that just slide over my head.

See the necklace and/or earrings here and here.

Long Boho Antiqued Copper Double Disc Earrings, Copper Dangle Earring, Steampunk, Minimal Double Disc Earrings

These are funky rustic double disc copper earrings in a sleek minimal style. I layered two antiqued copper metal discs one on the other and added (as you can see from image #1) three different options 1) an antiqued copper 5mm ball bead, 2) an antiqued cross and crystal, and 3) a simple puffed heart. All of which I wired to an additional bead and hung, from 1.25" kidney wires.  Fun and Funky. The hearts shown are with the leverback earwires.

But...choose your ear wire preference at checkout. Largest disc is 26mm in diameter. With the 1.5" kidney wires, earrings hang right at 2.75 inches.

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

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song

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

Olive Green Coin Pearl Necklace, Olive Pearl Necklace, Antiqued Silver, Olive Green Coin Pearl Earrings

I love these baroque glossy green olive green coin pearls. I wired one from an antiqued silver bail and hung from  delicate (yet strong) antiqued silver plated brass chain which I finished with a surgical steel lobster style clasp.

See earrings, too! Same baroque olive green coin pearls. Hung from your preferred wires. Pearls are topped with Swarovski crystals.

Please note, most coin pearls are much smoother on one side than the others. My pearls are similar and I always wire the smoothest side frontward. Please note than natural hiccups in nature's process of forming pearls leave unique markings on each pearl.

You can obtain these olive pearls here. See antiqued brass earrings here,

Courage dear heart Necklace, Long Boho Brass Cluster Pendant Necklace, Hand Stamped, C S Lewis quote, Courage

“But no one except Lucy knew that as it circled the mast it had whispered to her, "Courage, dear heart," and the voice, she felt sure, was Aslan's, and with the voice a delicious smell breathed in her face.”
― C.S. Lewis, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Do you need this? Know someone who is stepping out and needs the extra breath of confidence?

Courage, dear heart is hand stamped by me on a hand antiqued and distressed 1" brass disc. I added a gold filigree cross which I topped with a sparkling Swarovski crystal. The entire cluster is suspended from a 30" vintage brass soldered link chain. Discs are stamped in a fun "not perfect"style. I hand distressed the discs to have a worn look.

I have many different charms if the heart doesn't speak to you:) Let me know. I can also make the chain shorter if you prefer.
