Happy light colors of pink tourmaline, citrines, peridots, iolites, blue tourmalines, and amethysts. It has a sterling silver clasp and is signed.
I admit that I intended this one for myself. Therefore, you can be sure that I spared no expense on these stones. The “paddles” of the necklace are all tourmalines in the most outrageous melon, raspberry, fruity, orangey, lemony, citruses, and minty blue cotton candy colors. (I think you get the idea about the spectacular colors) These stones are sizable too. If you are like me and CRAVE color, then you need this piece!
This is a Party piece! Color enhanced, freshwater, cultured pearls in different shapes create this crazy wonky design. It looks fantastic around the neck! Every woman who tries one buys one! This piece is strung to 17 inches in length on a durable synthetic fiber that moves like silk but doesn’t stretch shred or fray.
The beads in this necklace are smooth quartz crystals, rubies, apatite, facetted amethyst, and tiny sterling silver balls.
You’ll notice that the colorful bead segments are a recurring theme in my work, but the elongated oval smooth quartz beads add an element of surprise. I feel this color combination is very “preppy” and think it could go from the golf course on a warm July day to dancing in Bar Harbor on a Saturday night. It’s strung to 16.5 inches with a sterling spring ring clasp on a durable synthetic string that moves like silk but won’t shred, stretch, or fray like silk.
These are true briolette cut tourmalines in degrees of peaches and pinks. It has plum color enhanced freshwater cultured pearls and sterling silver accent beads between each stone. The “chain” is the wave design in sterling silver. It is strung to 18 inches on a durable synthetic fiber that moves like silk but doesn’t stretch shred or fray.
Color enhanced baby blue chalcedony facetted teardrop (5/8” x ½”) with facetted smokey quartz diamond shaped briolettes, and freshwater, cultured, color enhanced peacock pearls with sterling silver.
This beaded necklace is strung to 16” on a durable synthetic fiber that moves like silk but doesn’t stretch, shred, or fray like silk.
One skill that I have acquired from this trade, is the ability to match pairs. Some people think you either have it or you don’t but I believe it is a skill just like any other that can be nurtured. This is one very well matched pair of light pink tourmaline briolettes.
Here is another subtle daywear piece for your jewelry wardrobe. If you like these earthy colors, you should consider this one because the scale and sparkle are wonderful. It has a jasper focal bead (1 ¼” x ¾”) with carnelian briolettes (also an agate, like jasper) and micro facetted labradorite beads. It is strung on an extremely flexible wire to 16” with a 14k gold lobster claw clasp.
This the most unusual infinity I’ve ever made. It is not at all conservative! It has unique textures and colors. The stones in the pendant are a teal, brilliant cut 6.5mm tourmaline with a 7.5mm checkerboard cut citrine underneath. The “paddles” are rare mandarin spessertite garnet teardrops followed by gradient blue green tourmaline briolettes.
As with all of the infinity necklaces, the reason why such a simple design works so well is because of the incredible quality of the stones I choose for each piece. These 7 mm round peridots are perfect in every way! The faceting is impeccable. The color is a beautiful deeply saturated lime green, and the clarity is AAA quality, the best!
As pretty as can be this aquamarine necklace has 14k gold waves with sterling silver flower accents. I decided to accent the aquas in sterling because it is such a light blue stone. I felt that when the silver tarnishes it would enhance the light blue with the contrast. 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.
This is an ultra casual necklace, with bright summertime colors. The jasper is 7/8.“ It is strung to 17.75 inches in diameter with a sterling spring ring clasp.
This is a three stone vertical infinity. I've only made a handful of this design and they never last long. This piece has three 6mm x 4mm oval facetted gemstones. The top is citrine, center is apatite, and bottom is chrome tourmaline (gorgeous green!) The setting and all of the accent beads are 14k gold.
It is strung with color enhanced, freshwater, cultured pearls, fine blue zircons, rare chrome diopside, and black spinels! This is an unusual color combination! It is strung to 17 ¼ inches long on an extremely flexible wire. The clasp is a lobster claw.
These are the nicest citrus colors, warm and refreshing I just want to drink them. They would coordinate with so many of my necklaces, but they do have enough presence to be worn alone.
These are the best pair of watermelon tourmaline slices that I have ever seen. They are about 11/11.5mm, which is the best size to just put them in and forget they are there! Sleep in them, shower in them…no maintenance. They are thick slices so they hold their color when dangling in mid air. 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 is Cat’s favorite pick.
So many colors, so much beauty! This is an all tourmaline pebble necklace. There are lots of watermelon pebbles too! This necklace posed one major challenge… Since the pebbles are drilled a tad roughly on the interior of the hole, some of the edges were “sawing” through the durable thread I usually use. I had to experiment with many different flexible wires to find the perfect one that would safely carry this many carats of tourmaline. Finally, I found the perfect material, so I am able to bring this piece back with confidence. The finished look is totally worth the effort!
These are the prettiest creative cut watermelon tourmaline leaves. I have strung them on round fresh water, cultured pearls. They are strung on an extremely flexible wire with a 14k gold lobster claw clasp. The length is 17 inches long.
Are you beautiful in blue? This classic drop has a twist! Lustrous fresh water, cultured, potoato shape peacock pearls lie in a row beautifully! The rare kyanite facetted teardrop is accented by alternating tanzanite and silvery blue pearls, very pretty. There is a sterling silver spring ring clasp and it is strung to 16.5" on a durable synthetic string that moves like silk but won't shred, stretch, or fray like silk.
This is the highest quality strand of natural white opal silica beads I have ever seen. It has tons of blue and green flash. Additionally, the camera caught some orange and yellows that sparkle in direct natural sunlight. You won’t find a nicer strand of opal silica with blue and green flash! These beads are on loan to me by my “opal guy” so I may offer something I‘ve never had before. This necklace is strung with a lobster claw clasp to 17.25 inches on a durable synthetic fiber that moves like silk but won’t stretch, shred or fray like silk.
This is a long strand measuring 22 ¼ inches of the most sparkley tiny dancing sapphire briolettes in a predominantly blue and pink color mix, but all colors are included, incorporated subtly into the mix. The cut, colors and clarity are great and the fact that they are micro facetted provides maximum sparkle. This piece looks great with denim or with any formal gown. It is long enough for petite ladies that prefer a choker, to get a bracelet or dangling earrings out of it as well!
