New Item - Forged Silver Vine Hair Barrette with Coral

You will just love the Silver Vine Hair Barrette.  I made this barrette out of thick .925 sterling silver wire, hammered and twisted with great difficulty.  I added a touch of color with Red Sponge Coral (which represent the color of berries) with tiny 4mm Petrified Wood beads.  Although it is constructed with thick gauge, sterling silver wire, it is delicate in design.  The entire barrette is less than 4" long.  It's not suitable for silky straight hair, but holds nicely with thicker hair. If you have a vision and would love this barrette with different color stones or crystals and pearls, please email me.  I love custom work.  :)  These barrettes make great gifts for that special person in your life with long locks.  Click here for more info.

New Custom Order for Client

I made this Necklace and Earrings set as a custom order for one of my clients.  This necklace is made with a large, red Tigereye Cabochon and 14k gold-filled wire work.  The filigree design gives the overall feel of ancient, old world, Roman or Grecian Jewelry with a touch of Victorian.  I also handmade the chain links with a thick 20 gauge 14k gold-filled wire and finished it off with a sturdy clasp.  I really enjoyed making this design and I will put together a few more of these to add to my store as part of my new spring collection. 

This particular design would also be awesome for a wedding (by exchanging the red Tigereye for a whitish or even a Rainbow Moonstone would be awesome)!
