peridot swing

another iconic bare tree, this time in pewter.  i don’t know what it is with me and bare trees, but i just think they’re so cool.  i made this one for my urban prairie collection.

i felt like it needed a little something, so i added a tiny peridot to swing from the branches, wrapped with oxidized sterling silver wire.  in keeping with the simple, timeless theme, i knotted it on a thin black leather cord.  i wanted to keep it spare and classic.

it’s available at my etsy store for $26 USD.

and i’m still donating $5 to red cross for every item purchased from my etsy store!

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.

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.
