Turquoise Howlite Necklace
This necklace is a nice combination of turquoise and brown colors. I started by twisting 2 strands of natural shell beads together, attaching a silver bail to it. I linked the turquoise howlite teardrop pendant to the bail. For an adjustable size, I attached brown satin ribbon in place of a clasp.
This necklace features 4 strands, each unique, but layer together beautifully. I used one of my favorite color combinations…bronze and turquoise. I made two of the strands more of a random look with seed beads, freshwater pearls, crystals, and turquoise. One strand has a regular pattern of turquoise and copper beads. The final strand holds […]
Turquoise And Tiger Eye Gemstone Necklace
This beaded gemstone necklace features beautiful 6mm tigerseye gemstones, turquoise rondelle gemstones and a large 1 1/2″ turquoise oval gemstone pendant. A sterling silver clasp and chain allows this necklace to be adjustable. Matching bracelet and earrings are also shown on my website.
Marlee Turquoise Necklace
This necklace was built around these beautiful lampwork beads, to which I added turquoise, picture jasper, and silver-plated spacer beads. I strung the beads on accuflex wire and finished the necklace with a silver “S” hook. I added an extender chain, so that it can be worn short or longer depending on what neckline you […]
Antique Turquoise Collar
I made this antique turquoise piece using 2 sizes of round turquoise beads. You may use from 8mm for the smaller ones and 20mm for the big ones to have this effect. I use wire wrapping technique for each dangle with bronze eye pins to get that antique effect that would match the spider veins […]
World Tour Mosaic Turquoise Necklace
This necklace was inspired by a piece I saw of someone whose work I admire. I wanted to see if I could render something like it but in my own style. I love the boldness of the 20mm round mosaic turquoise beads and the contrast that the antiqued brass leaf motif beads caps provided against […]
Turquoise And Pearl Bracelet
This bracelet is made of tumbled blue turquoise gemstone nuggets, cranberry-colored freshwater cultured pearls and sterling silver beads. To finish this piece I used a lobster clasp and added a turquoise gemstone and silver puffed heart that dangles off the clasp. I really enjoy using unique gemstones in my jewelry designs.
Chocolate And Turquoise Lampwork Bead Necklace
I came across these lampwork beads for sale and just had to buy them. I combined them with chocolate brown czech glass beads that have a swirl design debossed in them that coordinates so well with the swirl patterns on the handmade beads. I also added triangular shaped silvver metal beads that have a circular […]
Asymmetrical Blues Necklace
The vast majority of my pieces are symmetrical and I wanted to experiment with an asymmetrical design. The large pendants are turquoise dyed jasper and the smaller round beads are amazonite separated with small silver-plated spacers and wire wrapped glass turqoise beads. The final bead dangling from the very bottom is a large, ornate silver-plated […]
Flip Flop Turquoise Beaded Necklace
I like to recycle everything, including my beads. To make this necklace I re-used turquoise chips from a pair of flip-flops. I worked with two different lengths of bead stringing wire. On the longer part of this necklace I alternated the turquoise chips with glass seed beads. After several different trials I decided to use […]
Blue Quartz And Blue Opal Multistrand Necklace
For this 3-strand necklace I started with the faceted oval 10x14mm blue opal stones and added cube-shaped blue opals with light turquoise and darker foiled turquoise colored seed beads. The three strands are 18 1/2″, 20 1/2″ and 21″ in length (including the clasp). The clasp is a metal 3-strand hook with little flowers for […]
Pink Lemonade With Mint Necklace
This was my very first attempt at hand knotting beads. I was so nervous but had to try it. I loved the beautiful contrast that the color salmon has against turquoise. So, with this piece, I hand knotted polished round volcano cherry quartz agate & a stabilized oval turquoise bead on white nylon/silk thread for […]
Marshmallow Turquoise And Chain Necklace
For this necklace I used round marshmallow turquoise beads, cultured freshwater pearls, and sterling silver chain. The beads are strung on .019 softflex and then crimped onto the chain. I used a round hammered toggle clasp which is wire wrapped to a pearl and then the chain. I love how the pearls work with the […]
Coral Blues Necklace
The inspiration for this piece comes from the coral reefs, which to me is a beautiful harmonious blend of colour. I used American turquoise and pink salmon semi-precious beads for this necklace. For the centrepiece, individual beads were suspended on hand-made sterling silver head pins which were then strung unto beading wire. To finish off […]
Turquoise Butterfly Necklace
This delicate turquoise necklace is accented with silver jump rings and complemented with a silver butterfly pendant. An intricate toggle clasp finishes the piece.
Turquoise Mist Necklace
This necklace features 3 strands of silver glass seed beads that space a random pattern of turquoise briolettes, turquoise 4mm rounds, and quartz ovals. The clasp is a sterling silver toggle with delicate details. I was inspired by the briolettes when they were still on the strands that I bought them on and they were […]
Turquoise and Aqua Necklace
This 2 strand bead necklace weaves in and out of itself. It is strung with turquoise and aqua seed beads with metallic bronze and pressed glass beads.
The Krishna Indian Deity Necklace
My love for all things royal and majestic is never ending. When I receive a handmade pendant, something just runs through me and the feeling is heightened even more when I find the complimenting beads to uplift the pendant. The Krishna necklace is constructed on softflex wire for flexibility. I wanted something that would add […]
