can i keep it?

this wood pendant just spoke to me at the bead store, so i brought it home, and man, am i glad i did.  i don’t know if it’s algae or coral or a brain cell, but i really like it.  i added some red coral (sustainable source) and hammered balinese sterling silver, then strung it on a hand-sewn black silk cord.  it’s finished off with a sterling silver lobster clasp and i kind of hope no one buys it so i can keep it.

it’s available at my etsy store for $40 USD plus shipping and handling.

the beauty of winter

icicles necklacemaybe i’m just a touch sentimental because i haven’t seen one in a while–and it’s not looking good, what with relocating to southern cal–but i love the concept of winter: snow, icicles, clear blue skies.  you’ll notice there’s no shoveling, tire chains, or grey skies in my winter wonderland, but you can be sure there are sleds and hot cocoa with those little marshmallows.

yeah, childhood rocked.  and i brought back the wonder and beauty of it with these of winter-inspired necklaces.  put one on and remember the good times.

TOP LEFT: beautifully faceted quartz briolettes dangle like icicles from wire-wrapped sterling silver. this handmade, one-of-a-kind necklace is finished with sterling silver chain and a sterling silver lobster clasp.

necklace measures 20 inches in length but can be shortened to meet your needs at no additional charge.  it’s available at my etsy store for $42 USD plus shipping & handling.

winter blues necklaceRIGHT: remind yourself of the breathtaking side of winter with this sterling silver and quartz necklace. faceted quartz in multiple hues are wire-wrapped onto sterling silver chain and secured with a sterling silver lobster clasp.

necklace is 18 inches long; stones drop 2 inches.  it’s available at my etsy store for $38 USD plus shipping & handling.

bare branch necklace

it’s winter, it’s cold (ok, not in sickeningly sunny southern cal, but we do have some deciduous trees that have lost their leaves–so what if it’s from drought), and i love the iconic image of a lone tree biding her time for spring.  when i saw this cool pendant, i knew i had to incorporate it into a necklace.  i like to think i did it justice with this combo of copper, leather, and silk.

a handmade copper pendant hangs from a chain made of copper loops, hand sewn sea green silk cord, and tan leather ribbon. clasp is copper as well.

necklace measures 19.5 inches in length.

it’s available at my etsy store for $42 USD plus shipping & handling.

layers: not just for cold weather

want to get more mileage out of jewelry you already have?  maybe you’re the proud owner of a new necklace or bracelet that you think would look great with a few others you’ve got.  consider wearing multiple necklaces and bracelets together to get more bang for your buck.

no rules, just pair up what you think looks good together.  consider teaming up necklaces of the same color or a few bracelets that have the same feel: think earthy wood, turquoise, and jade.  i really like to pair chains of different lengths to make a simple t-shirt look put together.  i also love these two: a simple citrine strand with a delicate necklace that has a pendant (pictured right); the same citrine necklace takes on a whole new look when paired with something chunkier (left).  your look can be cool, chic, classic, sporty, or bohemian.  play around with your collection and see what fun combos you can come up with!
