Victorian Bracelet

1333_victorian Deep eggplant colored seedbeads are woven together to make up this extremely tactile bracelet.

It FEELS good to wear and touch and for some reason, it looks very Victorian to me. I

t has two loops for size adjustment, and I’ve sewn on two really wonderful Swarovski crystal “flowers” in fiery AB Volcano colors of amber, fuschia and topaz.

Fits up to a 7 ½” wrist. $165.

Glass Bangle

1330_glassbangle A truly elegant and one-of-a-kind bracelet. Born of heat and fire, a molten glass cane is shaped to fit the wrist and becomes a work of art.

I have carefully threaded a thick length of Sterling silver wire through the glass and added a large Sterling focal bead, lovely decorated end caps, and finished it off with a small wireworked clasp and a butterfly dangle. The glass in finished form is not really fragile, rather like a Pyrex dish.

Made to fit a 6 ½” to 7” wrist, I am happy to make it a half inch smaller or larger by making another clasp. $175.


1346_stones If you are into stones …

This is a fairly dainty bracelet that I’ve spiral stitched with small freshwater cultured pearls in shades of olive green and then woven in a hundred or so slightly larger stones on a base of celery and olive seed beads.

Closes with a small lobster clasp and fits up to 6 ½” wrist. $110.

Silver Mesh Bracelet

1337_silver_mesh Another wonderful to touch and wear bracelet, I’ve made this one in tiny Sterling Silver beads in a lacy net stitch.

All are surprised when they put this bracelet on because the weight of the silver gives it a nice heft (one good way of telling real silver versus base metal).

A wonderful piece to just wear all the time. Fits up to 6¾” wrist. $200.



A really fun bracelet that will fit any size wrist. It’s comprised of hundreds of sequins which I’ve strung on Memory Wire, round and round.

The sequins are luminescent green, a very subtle effect since you can only see the edges.

I’ve woven some darling vintage glass dagger beads in cranberry, denim, green and rust to cap off the ends and to overlap at your center wrist. $125. (Sorry, it's been sold.)

Chunky Bracelet


This bracelet is only for the brave and those wanting to make a statement. It is bold and chunky and comprised of absolutely wonderful beads: in seafoam, ivory and silver. The beads are Raku, ceramic, resin, glass, vintage glass, carved bone, Tibetan with intricate silver spacers, charms and lovely toggle clasp.

Fits up to 7 ¾” wrist. $185.



An oriental weather vane with a dog bone? 


It’s abstract jewelry art … etched copper and brass riveted together with a hammered Sterling and wireworked rod above. 

All on a 24” silver chain with copper and Sterling “S” clasp.  $125.

The last Teddy Bear


A fanciful copper and Sterling pendant with an adorable and detailed Sterling teddy bear charm dangling from it. 

I’ve hammered, forged and torched the copper to give it an interesting patina. 

Hangs from a 30” long silver chain.  $135.

Go fly a kite


Part of my metalwork series. 

First, I acid-etched a piece of copper sheeting, then cut it out with a jeweler’s saw.

Then I stitched it together with some gold wire and hung a chain with a cute little metal bow, which I also cut out. 

The piece is finished off with a gold-plated decorative chain and a 14 karat gold filled toggle clasp.  $135.
