Custom Necklaces

 

Recently completed a couple of lovely custom pieces for the same client. The moonstone was one of my own cabochons from my stash and was specifically chosen for moonstone’s properties. The client’s friend was in need of a boost after going through some challenging times. Moonstones are associated with the inner goddess, a master healer for women – it brings soothing, healing calm energy and helps regain back your power and inner balance. What a thoughtful gift!

The other stones, the client had purchased himself, specifically as a surprise gift for his wife. Peridot and Aquamarines are their birthstones and as they were recently married he wanted something that combined a little of them both. I think this guy is a keeper  – what a lucky woman:)

This one was  more of a challenge, since the stones were quite small and faceted on the back instead of flat like the cabochons I would normally use in my work so the back is not as neat and tidy as normal. I wanted to make sure there was no chance the stones would shift or come loose so I focused on security rather than beauty on the back LOL  I am very happy with the way they turned out and the client was thrilled.

Lovely Chrysocolla

On a recent business trip to India, I brought a few supplies with me to keep busy durning the evenings in the hotel room. One of the stones I brought with me was this beautiful chrysocolla. The colors were just gorgeous and I do love teardrop shaped stones. I surrounded the stone with a woven sterling silver teardrop with silver lattice work.

Chyrsocolla – first and foremost a Stone of Communication, devoted to expression, empowerment and teaching. It is supposed to allow truth and inner wisdom to surface and be heard. A peaceful stone, it emphasizes the power our words and actions have on those around us, and encourages compassion and strengthening of character. It is a stone of empowerment of  feminine energies, teaching us that genuine power is best expressed through gentleness.

I frequently post on Instagram and facebook the things that I am currently working on and one of my very sweet facebook followers just fell in love with this one and snapped it up before it made it into the store! She bought it while I was still in India knowing it would be a couple weeks before I got home to put a chain on it and get it shipped out.

I love it when a beautiful stone finds its true home. I think this one was meant for her 🙂

Thank you Pat

My Studio in the Barn

Over the last couple of years my husband helped me transform our barn. Starting with some painting and basic clean up which then turned into converting a portion of it to my dream studio. The perfect spot to work on my jewelry and look out at the horses.

   

 

I often bring my assistants to help 🙂

 

 

 

The view is pretty great
