New necklace

I've had these gorgeous Chocolate Jasper rondelles from Turquoise Magpie for a few months now, and I wanted to make something more dramatic with them than just a rustic setting. I finally found my inspiration in a box of faceted Czech glass beads!

Faceted gem earrings

I recently got a shipment of incredibly beautiful faceted gems (thank you, Marilyn and Ranjan!) that I've been playing with, and enjoying the inspiration that comes with new colours and cuts of stones. You've seen a few already (the peridot and citrine pieces), and here are some more. One is Rose Quartz with Rhodolite Garnet rondelles, the other is Ametrine with Amethyst rondelles.

Wedding Bells

This is a cute pair of earrings I created to match the bridal necklace I made, which has yet to be photographed. Nearly perfect round pearls and Swarovski crystals, with sterling silver.

Labradorite bracelet

A new set

Just a cute little set of faceted Onyx and Peridot, in the form of earrings and a bracelet. All sterling silver.

Earrings and more earrings!

Well, I've been somewhat busy, but unable to post any new work, due to problems with my camera. I finally borrowed my darling fiancee's and so here are some new earrings:

The first is Kyanite with faceted Citrine rondelles, the second a cluster of fuschia pearls, and the third is faceted Carnelian globes with Citrine rondelles clustered at the top.
