Shop Update

Good Monday morning all! Over the weekend I managed to list 5 new items in my Etsy shop.

Rock of ages

This is a simply stated copper pendant necklace, rich with fall colors and patina. The focal is an organic artisan handmade lampwork glass bead. I used faceted carnelian gemstones to accent.

Carnelian and vesuvianite drop earrings

This pair of earrings matches the pendant necklace. Vesuvianite, a new gemstone to me. I purchased these stones because of the rich green color. I found out, while searching info on this stone that it is also known as Idocrase, vesuvianite is named for Mount Vesuvius in Italy where it was initially discovered. You can read more about the "healing powers" of this stone here.

Funky bangle-mixed metals

Another one of my funky bangles, this one is mainly sterling silver and copper, with a few brass beads and a hand forged brass spiral charm accent. This look could be called, industrial, steampunk, rocker. A good layering piece as well.

Lapis, coils, and washe…
