If high-end jewelry appeals to you and you welcome the feel of genuine gemstone beads with real silver and gold, then this is the place for you.
My love of nature and gardening is reflected in many of my jewelry designs. I frequently use flower shaped beads carved from amethyst, carnelian, jade, jasper, onyx, quartz and other semi-precious gemstones. These are accentuated with sterling silver and gold filled findings. I also use other natural gems such as amber, coral,freshwater pearls and mother-of-pearl.
I have a fondness for aurora borealis Swarovski crystal beads and make use of them whenever a little sparkle is needed to complete a piece. They reflect light like fine diamonds. Swarovski crystal is the finest quality, full-lead crystal made today. The crystals are faceted with tremendous precision, creating beautiful prisms and are unmatched in quality and distinction.
I've purchased lovely beads at the great Tucson Gem Show, local gem shows and from international suppliers from all over the world. Recently my daughter visited China and brought back beautiful strands of gemstone and cloisonné beads from Beijing. And eBay has been a wonderful source for some gorgeous beads. Many of the carved flower beads are rare and unique so it would be difficult for me to duplicate most of my jewelry pieces.
Friends as well as other jewelry designers tell me my prices are too low. Maybe so, but I enjoy working with gemstones and I love to see ladies wear my jewelry. So if you buy one of my creations send me a picture of yourself wearing it and I'll try to post it on my website.
Please view my gemstone jewelry designs. Keep in mind that each necklace is a one-of-a-kind creation and is made from genuine gemstones and real sterling silver or gold filled*. Be sure to look at the unusual necklaces I designed from a strand of gorgeous synthetic stones I recently discovered, called fire cherry quartz.
