“Fig Newton”

The  Photograph in my headliner at the top of the page, is a 16 inch necklace, designed with carnelian, amber, goldstone, raw citrine, and fresh water pearls The pendant consists of two pieces of Italian glass, which I think look like figs (and I love figs); so hence the name!!

Call or email for price.

“Earth Mother”

This is one of my favorite pieces. I found the beads in different locations, and the piece of jade comes from a Tibetan shop in Davis California where I had spent the rest of the day watching one of my surgate grandchildren swim in the Special Olympics being held at the University. I love to just come upon something I’m not especially looking for.  This piece came together that way. It includes: Mother of pearl, African glass, amber, agate, amethyst, jade, yellow turquoise,  carnelian, and Italian glass, with an agate druzy pendant, and a sterling toggle. It goes well with many colors, and feels good to wear. It’s quiet, yet dynamic with the added bonus of not being heavy. It might just be the perfect necklace , but not for the “faint of heart”!  it’s 25 inches.        SOLD on February 27th to a couple with tickets to see Diana Ross at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts,

Latest neck art!  Contact me if you’re interested in purchasing this show-stopper!  I was at Eastern market in DC, and found a woman selling beads. I usually don’t like obviously dyed coral (Now that ox blood coral can’t be legally harvested anymore,most of the deep red is badly dyed), but this blue was so outrageously unnatural, I had to have it for some new pieces such as this one. I’ve included turquoise, bamboo, African beads, and glass, and added a stunning Tibetan pendant to the mix. It’s definately a conversation piece!!     19inches     Call or email for price.

Blue Waters

This is a combination of Agate druzy, Fired Agate, fresh water pearls, and faceted crystal drops with a sterling toggle clasp. The mix of stones, and color reminds me of a calm sea, and shell covered sandy bottom. I like the textured feel of the design, and hope it encourages the wearer to touch the cool stones, and recall a relaxed day at the beach. The necklace is 20 inches. Call or email for price
