A Little Shameless Self-Promotion

While I do make most of my posts about other artists and their work, every once in a while I figure that it doesn’t hurt to do a little shameless self-promotion.  After all, how else will my readers find out about my work?  So, here are some of the jewelry pieces that I’ve created more recently:


Filigree Long Slip Over Necklace in Dark Antique Copper with Brown Double Chain – 30″ – 76.2cm – $26.72   THIS ITEM HAS SOLD

To create this piece, I used dark antique copper filigree components, linked together with antique copper sturdy jump rings. The back of the necklace has a thin brown chain and a double chain of the same material hangs in front. A very fashionable piece that would look fantastic with a turtleneck or blouse. What’s perfect is that you don’t need to fuss with a clasp, as it can slip on right over the head!  This would go beautifully with a light-colored turtleneck.


Chunky Blue and Gold Beaded Necklace with Gold Chain – 20″ – 50.8cm – Lobster Claw Clasp – $26.89   ITEM HAS SOLD

A fun, chunky-in-the-front necklace which I handcrafted using 25mm Metallic Blue enameled glass beads and gold plated brass metal beads. Halfway through the necklace, it turns into a gold plated brass oval link chain, which I completed with a gold plated brass lobster claw clasp.  To string the beaded portion of the necklace, I used strong, flexible filament cord, which I secured at each end with concealed crimp beads.


Double Infinity Butterfly Necklace in Antique Brass with Swarovski Light Turquoise Crystals – 18″ – 45.72cm – $44.76  ITEM HAS SOLD

A one-of-a-kind necklace which I handcrafted using antique brass components and Swarovski Light Turquoise flat back crystal rhinestones. Double Infinity links connected to filigree butterflies with triple jump rings. In the center is a filigree butterfly that has three smaller butterfly charms and two leaf charms that hang below. I completed the necklace with an antique brass swivel lobster claw clasp. This is something you won’t find anywhere else and you’re sure to receive compliments when wearing it.  I used industrial strength, clear E6000 bond to adhere the Swarovski flat back crystals to the components.


Double Infinity Pendant with Swarovski Indian Red Crystal on Silver Chain – 18″ (45.72cm) – $23.87    ITEM HAS SOLD

To create this piece, I used a silver plated pewter double infinity symbol along with one of my handmade Swarovski round crystal charms in Indian Red. The crystal size is 12mm. The pendant hangs from a curved link chain made of silver plated brass with an antiqued silver lobster claw clasp.  Double Infinity means”Love Without End”. This pendant necklace is a beautiful symbol of love and affection. Whether for yourself or as a gift, it is sure to please. Part of my Double Infinity Collection.
