flower bouquet necklace


So I just started selling some of my jewelry at this charming boutique called The Flower Basket Boutique and I am thinking it must have been the inspiration for this necklace. Here is the link for the boutique if you want to check it out http://flowerbasket.squarespace.com/ it is adorable and the owners are just as cute. This necklace has a lot of color and pretty stones. The flower bouquet necklace features a lovely peach quarts stone front and center dangling with many other stones such as: turquoise, gray larvikite, freshwater pearl, and glass beads. All are hanging delicately from a long golden chain with a hand twisted clasp that adds charm and style. This necklace is a lot of fun.

turqouise necklace




This necklace is made of hand twisted wire with designs, turqouise stones, glass beads, and gray larvikite all hanging delicately on a long golden chain. This necklace also features a charming hand twisted clasp.

cool feather earrings




I just fell in love with these feathers, they have so much character. It took me quite a while to pick out the yellow-blue beads cause I really wanted to find something that complimented the natural colors in the feathers. These earrings also feature hand twisted wire around the top of the feathers.

fun cirlce earrings




These earrings are made of a variety of circle shapes and then crystal-clear glass beads that kind of look like melting ice.

purple and gold amethyst earrings




These earrings are some of my favorites. They feature hand twisted metal, glass beads, and a very beautiful stone called amethyst with faceted briolette cut. I dont really like to wear really heavy jewelry so one of the best parts to me is that they weigh hardly a thing so they are really comfortable.

lovely peacock necklace




This necklace was a lot of fun to make. The top of the feather features hand-wrapped wire, and a long silver-plated chain. This necklace also includes a hand twisted clasp. The bow was tied carefully and burned at the edges and I tried to pick out the ribbon carefully so I picked a color that comes right out of the feather itself.

hand wired dark amazonite necklace







This necklace is really a neat style. The amazonite gem is perfectly cut and is a really pretty color that goes really well with gold, although I could always try it in silver too. The clasp is hand twisted and stays on really well.

black and gold chandelier earrings







These earrings are made of hand twisted metal, lovely glass beads, and a variety of chain sizes. When I was designing this necklace I literally took it apart like five times to make sure that I got it right. They are elegant yet casual so they can be worn with just about anything.

elegant ribbon necklaces



So here is a ribbon necklace I made. The necklace is strung with elegant glass pearls and a variety of chains in different sizes and shapes. The ribbon adds elegance, and and is designed in an asymmetrical way to add interest. What I have noticed is that the ribbon makes the necklace more comfortable which is nice. The blue ribbon necklace includes a hand twisted clasp that is easy to get on and adds charm to the style.

black berry necklace




I just learned how to make a beaded bead and I think it looks pretty fun. It reminds me of a sun-ripened blackberry in the dark silver color. I enjoy the simplicity of the necklace; I think I will also try making it with a silver chain.
