Morganite Pink Glass and Copper Coin Bracelet, Vintage Pink Glass Charm Bracelet, Antique Pink and Copper Charm Bracelet, Adjustable

Love. Adjustable bracelet to accommodate a range of wrist sizes, these pale Preciosa Czech glass pink beads are sure to capture your heart.  I attached Preciosa Czech faceted glass beads with a few layers of copper bead caps to a length of antiqued copper linked chain.  These vintage rose faceted glass roundel beads glimmer in the light and are sure to sparkle on your wrist. I worked in a few antiqued copper coin medallions--in style this year, for character.

From tip to tip bracelet measures 9.5 inches but will clasp anywhere you choose to connect the trigger clasp. Nice!!! The extra falls down as a fun and sassy dangle.

Step into time with your bracelet here.

I have beads to make more! Just ask! See coordinating earrings here, or Chandelier style here.

Coordinating earrings come with the set and are shown on leverback wires.
This is a timeless set you will never regret adding to your wardrobe.

Black and Mint Murano Lamp work Glass Pendant Necklace and Earrings

This lampwork glass is amazing. On a black base the artist dabbled light minty green, shades of white, pale yellow and touches of brown. I added layers of vintage brass filigree bead caps and a few Swarovski crystals, then wired directly into an antiqued solid brass chain. Striking. 

Necklace as shown measures 18 inches. However, choose your preferred length below or message me about a different length. I made all the pieces in antiqued solid brass which is naturally hypoallergenic.

Abalone Teardrop Earrings. Shimmer for Summer

These are lovely light catching earrings. I wired shimmery black paua abalone shell beads with antiqued silver wire. Gorgeous markings. I hung the beads from a few different styles of wires, 1.5" kidney and leverback, both seen here--let the beads speak for themselves. When positioned to catch the light you'll see flashes of blue and green which make us love paua shell so much.

These will quickly become your go-to pair! From the 1.5" kidney wires as shown, earrings fall right at 2.25 inches; from the leverback they hang a bit under 1.5 inches. Choose your favorite earwire below. Earwires are surgical steel and wear very well.

Pearls are always appropriate

"Pearls are always appropriate, " is often quoted as from Kennedy's wife. And they don't have to be demure white orbs. I've had a romance with pearls from the beginning of my jewelry making endeavors 10 years ago, often spending hours caressing string after string of pearls at my San Diego supplier in pursuit of the most perfect smooth and shimmery gems. I invite you to step into my studio and be romanced by them, too. You'll find coin pearls, irregular baroque gems, even a few glass pearls, and most spectacularly, unusually large statement pearls, all in a range of shades from princess pink to cream, copper, olive and snowy white. Be romanced, too.
