Black Rainbow Obsidian Bar Necklace, 3 Bead Black Bar Necklace, Antique Silver Obsidian Necklace, Minimal





These are lovely shimmery AAA grade Rainbow Obsidian beads which glimmer when they catch the light. I simply strung 5 shimmery black beads on a sturdy antiqued silver wire to a light weight (strong) antiqued silver chain. When positioned to catch the light you'll see the notorious rainbow shimmer which makes this gemstone so famous!!! Necklace shown measures 18 inches.

Rainbow Obsidian is black obsidian that, when polished and exposed to a strong light, shows bands of rainbow colors. Rainbow obsidian is said to be the stone used by Nostradamus to foresee future events. Rainbow obsidian is particularly powerful in meditation to dissolve shock, fear or barriers.

All Magpies are made by me in my home studio. All metals used are nickel and lead free.

Rainbow Fluorite Chip Earrings, Fluorite Nugget Earrings, Fluorite Pendant








What an intriguing stone!! I was mesmerized in the gem store with the streaks of color against the translucent background, especialy when held up to the light. These pictures show several different styles of these gorgeous earrings. Choose your favorite ear wires, too.  The pictures above simply don't capture their beauty.

Fluorite is considered to absorb and neutralize negative energy and stress. An excellent learning aid, Fluorite is alleged to increase powers of concentration, self-confidence and helps in decision-making. It encourages positivity, balances the energies, and improves balance and coordination, both physically and mentally.

I made earrings as small as one fluorite chip, three stacked chips, or even a pair with three smaller green stacked chips. Choose below.

Each stone has natural markings and is uniquely different, but will look very similar to the ones pictured above. These stones have a translucent clear base with hints of  purple, green, gray and blue.

Leather and Pearl Necklace, Large Natural Pink Flameball Pearl Necklace, Leather, Tassel, Baroque Pearl, Rare Flameball, Sterling








Love. Love. Love. These pearls are AMAZING. I fell in love with first sight at my local pearl supplier. The style is Baroque Flameball. Such a lovely nacre.

These are absolutely beautiful extra large baroque natural nucleated "flameball" pearls. "Baroque" style indicates a naturally formed pearl with character in each swirl. Flameball pearls have been cultured in freshwater mussels. Each mussel is "nucleated"with a bit of shell and allowed to mature over the following two years as the pearl develops. A natural characteristic is a rounder bottom half and wing-like sides.

I wired the pearl in sterling silver filled wire to oval sterling silver rings then suspended from 32 inches of a double layer of baby soft deerskin leather which ties at the neck (you could always loosen and adjust). From the pearl I wire wrapped in more silver a five inch tassel in the same soft deerskin leather. Did you notice that I worked in a few Swarovski crystals to the wire for a subtle bit of bling? I created this necklace for myself first and wore it for several days as a market research:) And oh, yes, did it get noticed.

See here. For a full ensemble check out these earrings, here. To die for. More baroque pearls wired in sterling pins and hung from sterling silver earwires. I like mine long so wore them with kidney wires.

~~QUALITY CONTROL:
All Magpies are made by me in my home studio. All metals used are nickle and lead free. Pearls measure 30mm by 17mm in diameter. They are a natural pink/white nuceated baroque flameball. Wire is sterling silver. Leather is deerskin.

Long Baroque Pearl Earrings, Wire Wrap Pearl Earrings, Sterling Pearl Dangle Earrings, Statement Pearls



Make a statement with these beauties. I simply wired larger baroque off white pearls in sterling silver ballpins and hung from sterling silver oval links from your choice of earwire. Shown are the leverback and 1.25"kidney wires.

Each piece is handmade to order, and due to the free form nature of pearls, no two pairs will ever be the same, but will look pretty darn close to what is pictured above:) I've matched up pearls as close as possible in size and color.

Snatch up your pair here!! Chose long or short. See coordinating necklace here.

Each pair of earrings is slightly different. Earrings fall 1.5" from the top of the oval ring. From the kidney wires they fall 2.5 inches.
