The Queen’s necklace has weight. This is due to the solid silver stick beads that space the rare bicolor tourmalines perfectly. Incidentally, these stick beads are a finer alloy than sterling silver because they have a higher pure silver content at 97%. There are 19 hand picked, wonderfully facetted watermelon tourmalines of amazing color and clarity! The shapes alternate between long facetted teardrops, squatty teardrops, and a couple of marquis and true Victorian briolette cuts.
I feel so lucky to have found this pair of watermelon tourmalines! They are approximately 10/11mm. The slices had to come off the crystal right after each other because they are the same size, color, clarity etc. They have such party colors in a concentric circle design. These stones are smooth on one side, and facetted in a checkerboard pattern on the other. It was difficult to decide which side was the “front” but I chose the checkerboard. They are dangling from 14k gold baby lever backs so you can wear them even if you have small lobes.
These are fantastic. They are slightly larger than the normal dangles I make. The swirls of colors are subtle, neutral and will look great with anything. If you don’t like a lot of razzamatazz than these will be the perfect earrings for you. They are 14k gold and have just the right amount of dangle.
This one of a kind boat has amazing stones! The flag and hull are boulder opals and the center sail is an intense ammolite with red, green, orange and yellow constant flash and no dull spots. Whenever I wear this piece at a show, people can't help but stare! The bezels are 22k gold and the under bezels are sterling silver. It is more than a pretty neck piece, it is a statement about lifestyle. Currently strung with gold, color enhanced, fresh water, cultured side drilled round pearls.
This tourmaline texture necklace combines almost all of the shapes of tourmalines I have ever used. It is fun, playful and a great value for the price! The texture is all in the front of the necklace and there are sterling silver waves in the back. It is strung to 17 inches in length.
While the clarity of these stones are not as perfect as I normally offer to you, the colors overcompensate! These sweet 7.5mm amethyst and minty blue tourmaline stones are set in 14k gold and are strung with freshwater, cultured, color enhanced pearls and facetted amethyst roundels. It is strung to 18 inches in length on a durable synthetic fiber that moves like silk but doesn’t stretch, shred or fray like silk. The clasp is the lobster claw style.
These Montana opal agates are the funkiest shapes! Just seeing them makes me smile. You can imagine me giggling away as I strung this piece. I’ve used funky silver pods, which mimic the shapes of the stones. The patterns are so interesting that I considered using each one as a focal bead (the largest is 25mm x 15mm), but when I found the silver pods, I knew exactly what needed to be done! The back of the necklace is lustrous 6.5mm black tourmalines. It is strung to 18.5 inches on an extremely flexible wire. I’m very excited about this whimsical piece and can’t wait to see who buys it.
I didn’t have the heart to separate this parcel of briolettes, so I used them all together in this gluttonous paddle Necklace. The stones are peridot, pink tourmaline, and aquamarines. It is the perfect springtime/summertime color mix. The clarity is exceptional, making this one of the most sparkly necklaces I’ve ever seen. The sparkle is so intense that we must make sure this necklace is never in the same cases as the sapphire necklaces at the shows because it gives it a real run for much less money! It is strung to 17.75 inches on an extremely flexible wire.
Matched watermelon tourmaline slices are so hard to find! This pair is cute and petite-but not too small about 11 x 9mm. Just the right size to put them in and forget about them! They are 14k gold and dangle from baby lever backs so you can wear them even if you have small lobes.
I feel so lucky to have found this pair of watermelon tourmalines! They are approximately 12.5mm. They are 3mm thick so they hold their color when dangling in the air. They have great color and are the perfect wearable size that you can just put in your ears and forget they are there! They have 14k gold secura clips. These are the very best kind of ear wire because they actually have a clasp that clicks, not just a lever back that flips up.
This necklace has a 1 ¼” x ¾” jasper drop on light green citrine, facetted citrine beads with golden citrine marquis and facetted round jasper accents. It is strung on a durable, flexible wire to 19 ¾” with a 14k gold lobster claw clasp. You could wear this with everything, as its tones are neutral.
These neutral colors can be worn with anything. The 1 ¼” x ¾” jasper focal bead has a mottled pattern of peach and olive green so I’ve used peachy watermelon tourmaline facetted drops and green citrine to compliment the colors. It is strung to 16 ¾.” on a flexible wire with a 14k gold clasp.
This paddle necklace is sterling silver and is packed with Indicolite (blue) tourmaline and brown/olive smooth tourmaline drops that are so gemmy they look like candies! It is strung to 17.75 inches with lustrous fresh water, cultured, corn shaped pearls. There are smoky quartz and blue fluorite accents in the stringing towards the paddle to bring the colors of the pendant into the stringing of the necklace for unity and continuity design. The style of the clasp is a soldered spring ring.
So here is an infinity that I can’t make everyday. It is entirely Sapphires and Emeralds in 14k! The colors of the stones are gorgeous! The sapphire is 6mm of the most perfect cornflower blue and the Emerald is 7mm of the most unusual mint green. I have only seen this color of emerald come from the Muzo mine in Columbia. The blue sapphire beads in the front are smooth roundels. It changes after the gold bead to facetted emeralds. There is no skimping on this necklace!
This lovely delicate, one of a kind necklace has a 10mm x 9.7mm prong set watermelon tourmaline slice teamed with a 7.5mm x 5.5mm pink tourmaline oval. It is strung with coordinating gradient pink and blue facetted tourmaline beads. The scale of this piece is similar to the infinity necklaces for those of you who are familiar with my work. The interesting stringing above the pendant adds to the uniqueness of the design. It is 14k gold and is strung with a lobster claw clasp to 17 ½ inches on a durable synthetic fiber that moves like silk but doesn't stretch, shred or fray like silk.
I made this unique line of necklaces that mixes unusual pieces of jasper with sparkly facetted gemstones. This particular jasper has a green backdrop with whimsical circles that are different on both sides! It is strung with coordinating facetted moss agate briolettes, and gold color enhanced freshwater cultured pearls. It is strung to 17” with a sterling signature hang tag and a spring ring clasp. The string is a durable synthetic string that moves like silk but won’t shred, stretch, or fray like silk.
If you like intensity and deeply saturated orange the way I do, then I‘m sure you will like this orange version of the Queen‘s necklace. This necklace has peach tourmalines with a fabulous bicolor peach and gold tourmaline center. Each of the nine tourmalines are spaced by 14k gold balls, 22k gold flower beads, and teeny tiny seed pearls. The orange petal pearls are color enhanced keshi pearls. I believe this means they are solid 100% pearl nacre with no seed inside.
Apatite, ruby, amethyst, and iolite. There are a few inclusions in one of the front three apatites that shows from time to time. However, apatites of this size are so rare that it is not an issue for me. This necklace is strung to 17.5 inches in length on a durable, synthetic string that moves like silk but doesn’t stretch, shred or fray like silk. The clasp is a traditional 14k gold pearl clasp with a built in safety.

I’m so excited to be able to bring these baguette cut stones into my work as the cut is very difficult and time consuming to bezel set. This is a wonderful way for me to offer them to you in a clean, crisp, fun design. It is ultra contemporary and is 18” in length with a lobster claw clasp. The stones are excellent quality and are about 12mm x 4mm each.
