Summer Flora Earrings
These beautiful carved mother of pearl flowers needed some color in my eyes. So I have added a chain which I have embellished with fuschia-dyed mother of pearl round beads and olivine-dyed mother of pearl drop beads which I turned upside down to represent leaves. Now I have a pair of beautiful, flirty summer inspired […]
Aqua Recycled Glass Bead Earrings
These beads are handmade in Ghana from recycled glass fired in a sand kiln. They sparkle like crazy. I hung them trapeze style from oxidized copper chain and ear wires.
Sun Inspired Necklace Set
I love working with wire, so in this piece I focused mainly on giving wire a different and modern shape. To make the pendants, I used gold tone wire and combined it with a 12 mm black glass bead. I strung one on an 18 inch gold plated ball chain for the necklace, and attached […]
Falling Leaves Earrings
Fall is so full of wonderful rich colors. And as you know I love leaves! So this is my way of capturing those colors in this fall inspired pair of earrings. The leaf charms are antiqued gold color with freshwater pearls in various sizes and rich autumn colors. They dangle from a gold petite chain […]
Ruby Wedding Earrings
These sterling silver and ruby earrings were made as a part of a set to wear during my wedding. They are made of sterling silver chain and ruby rondelles.
Dancing Raindrops Earrings
I wanted to make a pair of earrings that colorful and flirty. I used the Venetian square beads as the guide and created my design from there. The earrings were made using Gold-filled chains and genuine faceted teardrop peridot and citrine gemstones. The earhooks and heart designs are 14K gold.
Smoke Stack Earrings
These earrings were created using smokey quartz nuggets, silver plated chain and diasy spacers, smokey quartz rondelles, and sterling silver fishhook earwires.
Black and Red Chandelier Earrings
This earring is a nice combination of wire, beads and chain. I used black color wire and attached a black chain to it, then I started working with beads using 4 mm black jet Swarovski crystals and 6 mm Czech red glass beads. These earrings are very suitable to wear with an evening gown.
Moonstone And Oxidized Copper Earrings
These beads are incredible – them seem to glow! The oxidized copper really brings out the glowing blue white color on the moonstones. These remind me of a full moon glowing in the night sky. They hang about 1 3/4″ below the handmade ear wires on an oxidized copper chain strung with handmade oxidized copper […]
Copper And Jasper Earrings
I started this project with a sheet of copper. I cut 2 large circles and drilled a hole on the top and bottom. I then used a doming block to give it shape. I attached 4 links of copper chain to the bottom hole. I added 4-5mm jasper beads and a gold bead to the […]
Fruit Punch Earrings
These earrings are made up of bright orange carnelian rondelles, wire wrapped to a thin chain, with chunky, faceted lemon yellow chalcedony briolettes wrapped at the bottom. All the metal used in these earrings is gold filled and they hang about one and a half inches long from the bottom of the earwires.
The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the copper charm with the birds was a feeling of a brand new day filled with happiness. So I decided to use the red marble-like beads to give it a cheerful feel and match it with white agate chip stones to bring out the […]
Queen Of Hearts Valentine Earrings
These earrings are made from wire wrapped rosy colored glass suspended from delicate silver chain. The glass briolettes have facets that catch the light and sparkle. They are finished with simple silver ear wires and measure about 2.75″ long.
Roadside Attraction Number Thirty One
These earrings are crafted from up-cycled leather and fabric. I used stainless steel links to create a chain maille drop. Stainless steel is a hypoallergenic metal and gradually gleams with wear. The black beads are glass. For findings I use leverback hooks which are perfect for stretched ears as they secure tightly.
Green Glass Pearl Dangle Earrings
These were made with silver plated ear studs, green “pearl” glass beads, Czech fire polished multi-colored teal/green glass beads, silver plated chains and silver plated headpins.
Honey Jade Earrings
Hanging on sterling silver ear hooks are large, faceted, pale yellow, honey jade rectangular stones measuring 11x17mm. The stones are strung on headpins which are attached to silver colored chain. The whole earring dangles about 2 1/2″ from top to bottom. They are simple but still elegant!
Green Goddess Earring
These are soooo glamorous, a lightweight but eye catching long pair of earrings, great for a special ball or gala occasion. The hoop earwires and heart shaped chandelier hangers are shaped and hammered from wire. At the top hangs a chrysophase mini nugget, next swing the gold heart shapes from fine chain. Under the hearts […]
Pink Coral Cluster Gold Filled Earrings
I made my Aloha Sunset Earrings with little round pink coral gemstones that I brought back from a summer trip I took to the Hawaiian islands with my husband for our 32nd wedding anniversary. I hand wrapped them with 14kt gold filled headpins and clustered them together on 14kt gold filled chain and 14kt gold […]
