It will be a lucky girl who gets this piece. This thick, gorgeous tricolor tourmaline (red, pink, gray) has remarkable clarity! It's a lot of carats too! It is strung on perfectly coordinating pastel sapphires with 14k and 18k accent beads and 18k gold lobster claw clasp. This piece is 16.75 inches long on a durable fiber that moves like silk but doesn't stretch, shred, or fray like silk.
This is a handmade glass bead by Lisa Joy Sachs. She is a fantastic lamp worker and she makes these beads exclusively for me to team with my opals! The opal on the bottom is not really flashy. It is really earthy. This piece is truly an art piece of jewelry. It has a bronze freshwater, cultured pearl accent and is strung with micro facetted green and blue tourmalines, labradorites, and green citrine! The setting is 22k and 14k gold. It is a one of a kind.
Every year I make a “Valentine's Necklace" This heart-like bicolor gray and pink tourmaline wins the 2008 title. It is strung with labradorite briolettes and facetted pink tourmaline beads. It has an 18k gold lobster claw clasp and is 18.25 inches in length.

Nicer stones than mine! Marquise watermelon tourmalines are separated by white seed pearls. It has a 14k gold lobster claw clasp.
14k gold, nice pair with old-fashioned ear wires. These earrings are light and feel good.
14k gold. Pretty pair with baby leverbacks. These earrings are light and dangle nicely, catching the light…
These brand new earrings are stunning! They are 18K gold and fancy Sapphires! The sapphire dangle is 1.75" and can be removed from the hoops so the hoops can be worn alone as well. The dangle has a sinuous articulation and is wicked labor-intensive. The entire drop is 2.25" with the hoop included. These are under-priced, most likely they are one-of-a-kinds as they are so hard to make.
These peridot starbursts are so sparkly! They are sterling silver and have chalcedony accents. They hang from sterling silver leverback earwires.
Jasper pendant with iolite accent is about 1 ½” long. It is strung on pearls with large iolite accents and sterling snowflake and daisy bead accents.
A trio of opals in ocean colors comprise this 22K and 14K gold pendant. The center opal is technically a black opal, because it has the presence of manganese. The other two are boulder opals (opals still in the ironstone host rock in which it naturally grows). My initial thought on this piece was to make a series called “Trail Markers.” It morphed into a goddess instead. To accentuate the ocean colors in the pendant, I have strung emeralds which blend into aquamarines.
This oval boulder opal has nice sparkly pin-fire and even has that rare magenta I love so much. The seed pearls are the tiniest ever. The boulder opal measures about 5/8 x 3/8”. This one is much prettier in person. Sterling spring ring clasp.
This jasper focal bead is wonderfully natural and unique. It has a fracture in the center of the stone that I could not capture in the photo though it is easy to see in person. If you are the person that thinks a few flaws add to the beauty of a piece, then this may be the perfect piece for you. It has a chalcedony accent and is strung with citrine pebbles, amazonite, and green jasper tube beads.
This unusual paddle necklace is packed full of fine gems! There is an onion cut Rose d' France amethyst in the center flanked by micro-facetted green sapphires, hot pink tourmalines, tanzanites (the fine deep blue ones), and labradorites. The back is a neutral green citrine. It is strung to 17" on durable wire.
The jasper focal bead in this piece has a spotted bronzy brown pattern. 14k gold fluted beads accent it. There is intense depth to this stone. This funky jasper necklace is strung with amber beads, white pearls and bronze freshwater, cultured, color-enhanced pearls. It is strung to 18.75” on a durable wire with a soldered sterling spring ring clasp.
This feminine boulder opal necklace has smooth kyanite roundesl segmented between carved moonstone leaves in peach, white, and gray that match the colors in the opal. The necklace strung to 17.5 inches with small, fresh water, cultured, potato pearls. This is a special piece that nicely mixes warm and cool tones.
