Brand new collection in bright sterling silver and oxidized silver! Carefully hammered with that special hammer that I bought not too long ago! (Click HERE if you want more info on the hammer I used & why it's so special!)
Pictured above is the small black disc pendant on a bright sterling silver ball chain. Look for more jewelry coming soon to this collection!
Black onyx is the birthstone for Leos (for those born from July 23 - August 22)and the anniversary gemstone for the 10th year of marriage.
Onyx is said to be a protective stone and may be carried or worn for courage. It is also said to provide support in difficult times and to center your energy in times of mental or physical stress. It also offers the gift of wise decisions.
Contemporary authors say the onyx brings increased vigor, strength, stamina, and self control. It alleviates worry, tension, and nervousness and eliminates confusion and nightmares.
All in all, the black onyx is a good stone to have nearby!
Why is this handmade sterling silver necklace so popular? One word: because it's just plain FUN to wear, that's why! It's got lots of jingly, jangly parts (not that you can actually HEAR the parts jingling, but you get the idea) AND it will get you a nice bit of attention and compliments - WHY? Because this handmade necklace is just that different!

By the way, I call these two pieces "waterfall" because that's exactly what they remind me of!
I am loving the look and carefree style of this lightweight stainless steel necklace and oval freshwater pearls! The longest steel necklace is 40" long, the mid length is 33" and the shortest length is 27". Each necklace has 5 freshwater pearls, hand wrapped with sterling silver wire.
You can buy one, two or all - the choice is yours. See chain detail below - it's a great looking stainless steel chain in the "rolo" style.
Long layering sterling silver and stainless steel necklace - this necklace is seriously long - about 40 inches in overall length! Great for layering with the shorter necklaces in this same collection or for wearing on it's on. Yes, it's ok to wear one long necklace - in fact, it's pretty trendy; see the celeb below who looks stunning wearing one super long necklace!
Ok, so it's not EXACTLY my stainless steel and silver necklace, but it could be, right? LOL!
The longest necklaces in the Strata Collection are about 40 inches long; this stainless steel necklace is accented with handcrafted sterling silver "knots". East "over the head" design!
Three of the layered necklaces from the Strata Collection. These necklaces are stainless steel accented with handcrafted sterling silver "knots".
Another layered necklace from the Strata Collection of stainless steel and sterling silver jewelry! Stainless steel jewelry is great - not only is it lightweight but you don't have to worry about tarnish or rust - just great all around metal for jewelry.
Nothing could be better or fresher than clover jewelry for springtime! Above is the necklace, below, earrings!
Clover jewelry is great - such fun!

Here in south Louisiana, it is just starting to get cool. Since we love our summer dresses, it's easy to extend the wear for these dresses into the fall with a jacket - denim is always correct! Change the sandals for short boots and you are in business for the fall!
Getting new photographs of my chunky sterling silver necklaces and trying to decide whether to use the interesting, asymmetrical black top or the red top, which gives the jewelry a more sophisticated look. It seems that the red top sort of "frames" the necklace so I think that may be better.
