My special collection of intricately beaded necklaces and bracelets. Allows me to pull from my international, antique and hand-made collection of beads and findings. Finding them is a great part of the fun, the other part is looking for the synergy of a new bead with my existing collection. I've found that running on the treadmill while gazing at my beads is a great source of inspiration and healthy,too!
A very small sampling of what is available and what can be done. These fun and funky bracelets are comprised of zillions of different beads: lots of vintage, Greek ceramic, seed, flame worked (lampwork), Sterling, brass, copper...whatever catches my fancy when I'm putting colors together. Clasps can be Sterling toggle, wireworked by me, vintage buttons, or inlaid semi-precious stones. Email me for what's currently available or order a special favorite color combination of your own. Bracelets are $125. (Click on the photos to see more detail.)

A fiery 25-inch long necklace: 8 braided strands of copper, saffron, caramel, fuchsia and cabernet seed beads, Swarovski crystal, red and yellow tiny coral branches and a Ronnie Lovett (Phoenix, Arizona) dichroic 1-1/2 inch round focal bead which served as the starting inspiration.
