Brilliant Warm Red Ear Wires
Cubic zirconia in a warm, orangy red is faceted for flash and dangles from hand formed sterling ear wires. The inner fire in these earrings will warm up any outfit for fall or winter and coordinates well with the reds in many of my fall necklaces-as illustrated here shown with my Red and Natural Long Knotted Leather necklace. Wire wrapped to include a cap of tangled sterling wire, a rich contrast in textures.
Hand formed wires incorporate satin finished sterling beads and a faceted and stamped Thai silver bead. Earrings drop 1 3/4" from the top of the ear wire.
Earrings are shipped with clear silicone ear wire clutches and are carefully packed in a cotton filled, decorative box, all ready to give or to keep.
Red and Natural Long Knotted Leather necklace
Really long necklaces are so versatile and this one is original, too. Fine brown leather has been knotted to capture 71" of lovely hand selected natural stones and beads. Included are natural red marble, dyed red quartz, natural varigated quartz, and Czech glass, all with unique patterns and a variety of surfaces, featuring shades of bright,warm red.
Since this necklace is over 71" long and closes with a copper toggle, it can be worn in many ways from very long to a wrapped arrangement with either staggered strands or a cluster of beautiful stones. It's even long enough to tie into a loose knot. Imagine layering it over a nice winter sweater for a look that's sure to get attention. It coordinates perfectly with my Brilliant Warm Red ear wires, listed here in my shop.
Necklaces are carefully packed into decorative boxes, all ready to give or to keep. Consider adding coordinated earrings, either available in my shop or custom made for you-just drop me a note!
Luxuriant Labradorite neckpiece
A truly royal collection of faceted labradorite teardrops, graduated in size from 15 mm to 6mm long, forms the clustered focal point for the artful neckpiece. The deep gray labradorite includes generous flashes of royal blue, teal, green and yellow, always changing in different light. Plentiful facets add another kind of light play.
Teardrops are arranged on sterling silver coated steel beading cable which is linked to oxidized sterling chain. The sterling lobster claw clasp and wire used to construct this piece was also oxidized here in my studio.
Just over 9" of stones, connected to a total of 14" of chain and clasp, make this piece infinitely adjustable from choker length to as long as 23"--plenty of different lengths to suit different necklines. A labradorite briolette dangles from the end of the chain.
It took over a year to finally gather a collection of labradorite stones in order to create this graduated arrangement. This piece will be offered as a very small edition. Coordinated earrings, in a style that you prefer, are always available--please contact me for more information.
Each neck piece is carefully packaged in a cotton filled, decorative box for shipping.
