Pretty in Purple (for Cezi)

This one's for Cezi.... :-)

I got a request for some detailed photos of my jewelry, and while reviewing my blog, I realized that I haven't posted any pictures or information about my jewelry in quite some time. I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize to my blog readers, because in the midst of trying to expand the content of my blog and include information about other things I thought you'd all find interesting, I seem to have forgotten the original purpose of my blogging - to write about my jewelry....doh!

So, here's one of my latest designs, which I call "Pretty in Purple."



This bright and cheerful design is made with jade (radiated), freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals, and sterling silver components. The beads were hand-wirewrapped onto sterling silver chain, and this design is available on my web site, as well as, at Maddi's Gallery in Charlotte, NC. I'd love to see someone where this necklace with a light purple or white dress or top to contrast the deep purple in the larger stones. The purple of the jade is a vibrant purple - so pretty in person! This necklace is best worn with a low, v-neck top or a high, round-neck top - wear over skin with the v-neck and over the shirt with the round. The bottom 2 of the 4 pictures above are of my newest concept - the "cluster." A cluster is made of one or more beads that are wire-wrapped onto a spring clasp, which can be attached to a simple sterling bracelet. The cluster gives you more versatility because you can wear any cluster on the same bracelet or just wear the sterling bracelet alone. Detailed pictures are available for each design on my web site - just click their pictures, but for those who don't feel like clicking through right now, here's a more detailed photo of the earrings:

Happy summer shopping!
