Lisajoy Sachs created this beautifully neutral bead with subtle rainbow colors. I have teamed it with a blue-green jasper bead, and coordinating gray moonstone. The bezel is pure silver and everything else is sterling silver. It is strung on labradorite smooth round beads with facetted apatite accents around the bail for a punch of color. The pendant dimensions are 1.5” x .75”.
The stones in this new link design are ocean jasper, carnelian, ametrine, citrine, and rhodolite garnets. It is strung to 17.75” on a durable, flexible wire.
This unusual piece has a gorgeous, natural, blue-green, uncut tourmaline crystal set in a heavy 14k brushed gold cap. I love how Mother Nature has made the backside perfectly flat, just begging to be made into a pendant. It is strung with rainbow colors of tourmalines individually matched up by yours truly. It has a traditional filigree pearl clasp, which has a built in safety. The pendant measures 2" x ½" with the cap.
This pretty pastel fancy cut tourmaline is lively and lightweight. It is strung on peach and color enhanced green rice pearls. I'm fond of this pastel piece. The tourmaline measures ¾" x ¾"
This colorful and unique necklace uses a large piece of sea glass. I believe it was the bottom of a bottle. I have used it as a canvas to set nine gems inside of the glass. Each gem is set into a tiny 14k gold bezel. The stones are rhodolite garnet, white and blue topaz, amethyst, ruby, citrine, pyrope and spessertite garnets, and blue sapphire. I have strung it with a plethora of every gem I can think of in different shapes and textures. It is 17 ½” long.
The multicolor tourmalines in this necklace are marquis cut briolettes. They are used in this sleek design of sterling silver waves and tube beads.
This one of a kind necklace is as tasty as a creamsicle treat! Oh great, now I am craving a creamsicle, and summer at the Jersey Shore. For a yummy orange flavor without the calories, try this necklace made of a carnelian bezel set in fine silver and teamed with a glass bead made by Lisajoy Sachs. The unusual stringing on this piece has peach moonstone faceted briolettes in a cluster, as well as an assortment of freshwater pearls in all different shapes. The pearls are all matched up to 16” in length.
Finding something new and exciting after making jewelry professionally for 27 years has really gotten my creativity refreshed! My friend Lisajoy Sachs introduced me to this new way of making jewelry with precious metal clay. Mitsubishi Motors (yes, the car company) makes this clay that is pure silver embedded in a bonding agent. I create my piece out of clay, and then by firing it in a kiln, it “sinters” into a solid piece of pure silver once the bonding agent burns out. Sounds complicated but it is like playing with really expensive play-doh and really brings out my inner child.
This super sparkly piece is made of a dichroic glass cabochon by Lisajoy Sachs teamed with a specimen of peacock ore. I’d like you to consider this an evening necklace as the peacock ore could fade from sunlight causing it to be less than super sparkly. I bet it would look great in theater light! I feel it worth making for the conscientious jewelry collector. It is strung to 17” on facetted labradorite gemstones to keep it neutral and sophisticated to wear with that little black dress in your closet. The bezels are pure silver and everything else is sterling silver.
Lisajoy Sachs made the glass focal bead in this pendant. It is one of my favorite color combinations- peach and plum. I have paired it with a peach moonstone, set in a pure silver bezel. All of the other components are sterling silver. It is strung on facetted ametrines with iolite and sterling silver accents. The length of the necklace is 19 ¼” and the length of the pendant is 1 ¾” x 5/8”
From the Aragona Designs Costume line, I present this Austrian crystal, freshwater, cultured pearl and sterling silver accent necklace. This sparkly, colorful piece can be seen coming and going. It is a one of a kind.
Are you a philosopher? Do you love yoga and recycling and the word “IS?” If so, this IS your piece. This IS piece of sea glass has a genuine ruby set inside in a little 14k gold bezel. It is strung on coordinating fresh water, cultured, color-enhanced pearls to 17.5” long. The bail and clasp are sterling silver.
A thick, white piece of sea glass is the canvas for the colorful zigzag of gems that runs across it. The gems are peridot, blue topaz, spessertite garnet, and rhodolite garnet. Each gemstone is set into a little 14k gold bezel and then set into the sea glass. This piece is on a strikingly matched sterling chain with matching lima bean shapes.
This necklace is currently being exhibited at Island Artisans Gallery in Bar Harbor, Maine. Please contact me before purchasing so that I may check if it is still available. Thank You.
My seaglass is found in Maine. A sea glass expert once told me that these lavender pieces were originally white when they found their way into the ocean but that over time, the minerals in the sea turned them pinkish or lavender. I set a rhodolite garnet into this particular piece. I never found a pink piece of sea glass in all my years summering at the Jersey shore, but it is here in Maine and I love them! This piece is strung on smooth amethyst briolettes to 16” long. All of the components are sterling silver except for the little 14k gold bezel that the rhodolite garnet sits in.
