New Necklace

I just finished this new necklace up.  Sorry it's only a phone snap but  I wanted to get a picture of it up as soon as possible.  18k gold, freshwater keshi pearl, purple sapphires.  I'm a little under the gun so that's all I'm putting in this article.

Don't Give Up Hope

Rhodolite garnet, 22k and 18k gold rose bud earrings

So you're really unhappy that you missed out on getting one of those three pairs of earrings in my last post.  But I have a whole lot of other beautiful pieces out right now, like the garnet and 22k rose bud earrings in the picture at the top.  Or I also have a pair of earrings with garnets out now that look like these diamond earrings:   

18k gold and Lazare Diamond earrings
So don't give up hope!  Actually I have more jewels out in my cases now than I have had in quite awhile so stop by and see what's cooking!

Tis the Season, Limited Edition Earrings and Then There Were None

One of the good things about me working so hard at this time of year is that I'm actually on my bench more.  Being on my bench more means I get to do my favorite thing which is actually make some jewelry.  And when I have to spend a lot of time making up custom pieces for my wonderful customers I make sure that I also have time to produce something new for the cases (because if I have to work all the time I like to do something for myself as well).  Last week I made up the three earrings in the pictures posted here over a three day period (they're called "3 days-3 earrings" for some strange reason). 

These are a limited edition set.  They are made of oxidized fine silver and 18k gold with sapphires in two of them and rubies in the third. I will not be making any more earrings in silver and gold at least for a year and they will not be the same as I threw out all the sketches for these immediately after making them.  They are amazingly reasonably priced and one pair has already been sold (although I have them for a few more days if you want to come in and see them all) so if you're interested you'd better get in here soon! 

About twenty minutes after posting this article I sold a second pair so I'm down to only one now. The ones pictured at the top are still available. 

And then there were none.  The last pair sold last night (thanks Diane!).  The rest of you will have to wait to see what I come up with next year!
