My parents are having a hard time getting me to leave my jewelry supplies even for a home-cooked dinner!!! I'm burning off the stress of the past few weeks by being creative; my hands are busy and my mind can wander....here are the latest creations! All my jewelry on this page is made with silver findings.
These two earrings are made with a) carved carnelian knots, mother-of-pearl, and turquoise and b) red aventurine, mahogany obsidian, and mother-of-pearl.
I was getting less creative towards the end of the "photo shoot"-thus the Havaianas hanger! These are, from L to R:
garnet, peridot and lavender fluorite; rose quartz and green aventurine leaf; rose quartz and garnet.
L-R: Green aventurine and lavender fluorite; cultured pearl, garnet and peridot; rose quartz, amethyst and lavender fluorite with silver.
These are part of a set: cultured pearl, silver bead and lavender fluorite. The necklace is below, made with the same stones and hung on a silver chain:
This set is one I'll probably keep. The black beads come from my great-grandmother's collection. I think they're Czech glass. The mottled discs are sesame jasper and the fantastic wavy clasp (which you can't see in the picture...it is a heart-shaped toggle) is silver.
Gold-green cultured pearls and antique black glass beads.
A shorter version of those earrings above...red aventurine and mahogany obsidian.
Silver filigree with garnet bricks and a carnelian. These earrings remind me of Indiana autumns and the gorgeous purples and reds of the sassafrass and redbud leaves....
