These faceted "opal quartz" drops are amazingly beautiful. They can reflect blue or pink depending on their surroundings - so pretty. There is some debate re: whether these are actually quartz or a manmade material (i.e., glass) but whatever they are they are really lovely and fun to wear! Click below to shop!
This bracelet has been available for awhile now in sterling silver and in a combination of sterling and gold but I have now made in availabe in gold fill! Gold fill is not plated and the thick coating of 14k gold will last a lifetime, giving the look of solid gold at a fraction of the price!
After a fairly long break from jewelry making (no shows, no in person sales), I am back at it. Starting with some pretty cool bracelets. Click the button below to take a look...and stay warm out there, y'all!
One of my favorite silver stacking rings and one of my favorite handmade cups!
Don't you love owning things that just make you happy every time you look at them? I would say silver stack rings are a new jewelry trend but, really, did they ever go out of style? I don't think so!

I have been so excited about this new collection! It has been in the works for at least a year and it is specifically for those who would prefer a somewhat "daintier" look. You will recognize some original designs, made in a smaller format just for this collection, as well as some new designs. In the photo to the left, you will see, on top, the original "Persian" necklace - below, the same design in the "Little Luxuries" Collection. Several of the new jewelry designs, especially the earrings, have tiny gemstones added. If you look at the collection of new earrings, you will see the gemstones I am currently using including freshwater pearls, lapis lazuli, rose quartz (one of Pantone's two colors of the year this year) and amethyst.
This new jewelry collection is called Little Luxuries because of it is a petite version of original "Luxury" Collection. Each component is, as always, made in my studio in both a smaller size ring and a smaller diameter wire. The result is a wonderfully luxurious and dainty piece of jewelry, perfect for you or for gifting. You can see the entire collection, including the tiny earrings with gemstones, by going to the Little Luxuries Collection here.
