Pagoda Earrings

Pagoda_earings_e Here they are, my new Pagoda Earrings.  I finally have two pairs that are not spoken for. 

One set is Sterling Silver, hand hammered and pierced, with gorgeous etched Raku beads.

The second is 14K gold-filled, again hammered and pierced, set off by stunning Ocean Jasper semi-precious stones with a most interesting design. 

Either pair, $85. (Click on the photo for a larger image.)

New design: Copper Maze

Bracelet_020608_2 Hot off my design board is my newest freeform bracelet...a gorgeous piece if I do say so. 

I'm calling it COPPER MAZE, for it is filled with twists and turns, bridges, tunnels and flying buttresses. 

It all began with a new square-shaped flame-worked focal bead from Grace Beads of San Francisco and two matching smaller round ones.  The bead shades of copper, caramel, taupe, saffron on a cream background led me along a meandering path of four sizes of seed beads, bugles, hex, daggers and some glimmering topaz Swarovski crystals. 

I am leaving the snap closure off until a buyer comes along so that I can make a custom fit.  This will enable me to size it for both smaller and larger wrists.  The bracelet took me three weeks to make and is $300. (Click on the photo to see a bigger image.)
