Since opening my showroom in Bar Harbor, I’ve learned that sea glass jewelry is in high demand. I love the stuff, but have intentionally stayed away from it because I used to apprentice with a woman who made it her trademark. At the time, not so many designers were making jewelry with it. We live on the same island. Therefore, I kept my distance from the material for 15 years.
The briolette focal bead is a whopping 1 3/8” long! Yes, I said INCHES. This is a gorgeous, large piece. Only purchase this piece if you are very careful with your jewelry because fluorite is soft and can not be thrown into a pouch for travel. The pendant is spectacular! It looks like the color of mint tourmalin!
14k Gold and great clarity, color, cut, shape and size! I love everything about this one.
The boulder opal pendant measures 1” x ½”. It is strung on rich brown color-enhanced, fresh water cultured pearls with a spring ring clasp.
This sapphire stick bracelet is an alloy that is almost pure silver. It is strung on a flexible, durable wire.
This bracelet has clusters of smooth AAA quality tourmalines. Some of them are even watermelon or bicolor! Almost pure silver jack beads segment them. This is a wonderful look sure to get compliments because I wore one out the other night and so many people like it.
This old world look is hard to achieve! 22k gold, with diamonds. Very pretty!
No custom sizing. About a size 6
This piece is dramatic. The shorter waves are 22k gold. The longer waves are 14k. The Boulder opals are all fabulous. It is strung to 17 inches on a durable wire.
This is a unisex ring. The stone is a genuine black opal from Australia. The black opal measures 7/8” x 5/8” It is a freeform shield shape but is hand-cut with great dimension and a superior luster. The setting is a 22k and 14k gold marriage of metals. It is about a size 10 ¾. It is a fabricated one of a kind piece.
Intense teal color enhanced, fresh water, cultured pearls, light blue topaz facetted beads, apatites, labradorites and chalcedony create a unique overall look with this jasper focal necklace. It is strung to 20 inches in length on wire with a sterling spring ring clasp.
Three gorgeous Australian boulder opals make the sails and hull of this lovely little sailboat pendant/enhancer. This piece is a marriage of metals. The bezels are solid 22k gold, the under bezels and the enhancer bail is 14k gold. The piece measures 1 1/4” by 7/8” (including the bail) and is strung on gorgeous white freshwater cultured pearls with a 14k lobster claw clasp.
This new jasper design has been in my head since Tucson. It is jaspers, silver jack beads and amazonite beads. It is strung to 18 ½" on a flexible, durable wire. The pendant measures 2 3/8" x 1 3/8"
I met artist Karen Bye in Tucson last year. The little dot in the upper right hand edge of this pendant is her signature. She is doing what I always wished I knew how to do. She is making small, wearable perfume bottle pendants. They are just gorgeous. The tops really open and you can actually use them with essential oils or just wear them because they are so pretty. This is her “Monet” with a white background and a green and pink billowy flower pattern.
This is my newest pendant design series…and this one has tourmaline sticks, sterling silver daisies and vermeil (gold over sterling silver) twirlies. It is strung on a flexible, durable wire to 19". The beads in the stringing consist of sterling silver daisy beads with multi-color, facetted tourmalines interspersed in a random pattern. Though it is random, the sides are perfectly symmetrical! The pendant measures 1 1/16" x 5/8"

This jasper necklace has a matte jasper focal bead that looks like a pebble you might find on the beach. It is strung with freshwater, cultured; color enhanced pearls and sterling silver daises. The pearls remind me of a field of flowers. I guess I’m ready for spring. The pearls are a different shape that is flat on one side, but domed on the other. Since they spin around I am showing them in the photo how they really lie. This is not a necklace for someone who enjoys uniformity. The owner of this piece is a free spirited “hippy” gal. I’d love it on a young girl.
I believe these beads are called cherry quartz. They are strung on a flexible wire with freshwater, cultured pearls. It is 18.25” long with a sterling spring ring clasp.
This square ¼” x ¼” boulder opal has tons of pink flash. It is delicate in scale-like the infinity size. It is strung to 19.5 inches on fresh water, cultured, rice pearls. The clasp is a sterling silver spring ring.
This is an amazing piece. It is all natural boulder opals. Boulder opals are opal silica in the ironstone boulder that it grows in. Opals are amorphic and always grow inside a host. In the case of boulder opals, the host (or matrix) is ironstone. The length of this necklace is 18.75 inches.
