Table of Contents

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Introduction

The Collection:
Bracelets
Quarry
Polished tablets of patterned jade and agate alternate with carnelian beads in tomato red and tangerine on this 30s-style bracelet.

Starburst
Glittering crystal beads in grass green and sky blue are dispersed “willy-nilly” on short, spiky strands of filament on this playful cuff bracelet made of memory wire.

Pastel Cloud
A frothy “tangle” of crocheted silver wire holds plump pearls in a sweet confection of pastel colors on this cuff bracelet with a pretty toggle clasp.

Liquid Gold
Precise rows of highly polished gold nuggets are stitched together using the peyote method to make this languid wristband of glowing perfection.

Necklaces
Willow Branch
Spindly branches made of wire are tightly wrapped with fine gold wire and accented by delicate coral and jade “buds” on this collar-style necklace.

Sunrise
Faceted carnelian beads in orange are interspersed with pairs of smaller pale-green beads and accented by graceful pendants made of teardrops on this necklace with a 30s-style sensibility.

Ruby Drop
An oversized, irregularly cut ruby is accented by a silver bead-and-rod stem and threaded onto a leather necklace on this choker-style necklace.

Floating Pearls
A scattering of luminous pearls in gemstone colors appears to float on this trio of delicate strands that bend and crinkle, sending off glints of light.

Teardrop
A faceted-crystal drop in water-clear amber is suspended from a central pendant made up of a profusion of glass beads in rainbow colors on this flirty necklace.

Trio
Scribble patterns are “captured” in three glass tablets that are suspended in a perfect cascade from this hoop-style necklace.

Venetian Swirl
Reminiscent of prized Murano glass, swirls of color trace delicate patterns on hollow beads in sensual shapes on this elegant necklace.

Trefoil
Dainty “petals” made from milky-blue crystals are the stylistic prelude to a single, sparkling teardrop bead in lemon yellow on this dainty necklace.

Cascade
A shapely variety of faceted-quartz chunks and smooth glass beads in plum, lavender, and amethyst glow and sparkle on a swirling trio of beaded strands on this elegant necklace.

Necklace Pendants
Infinity
Neat rows of seed beads in gleaming gold are made into a moebius strip (better known as the infinity symbol) that cradles an oversized pearl and balances on a braided sterling-silver chain.

Spring Peas
A handful of faceted rondelles in mouth-watering colors—apricot, lemonade, grape, pomegranate, and lime—are threaded onto each end of a loop of wire, creating two rainbow-colored pendants in the shape of peapods.

Water Lily
Gleaming gold disks with center pearls that resemble lily pads with water droplets are inserted between the segments of a silver tendril made from wrapped silver wire on this pendant necklace.

Deco Harvest
A mixed cluster of plump “berries” reminiscent of Art Deco jewelry hangs from the thread-wrapped links of a simple chain.

Starfish
Pearls, the color of moonlight, are embedded in a star-shape pendant made from wire and suspended from a finely woven silver chain with a barrel clasp.
 
Earrings, Rings, and Pins
Caribbean Waters
Faceted cut-crystal bicones in bright aqua blue and leaf green blaze with inner fire in these elegant drop earrings.

Zig-Zag
Lengths of lustrous silver wire are bent into soft angles and tightly wound with silver wire that is threaded with pearls in graduated sizes for these fun, dangly earrings.

Retro Moderne
Perfectly round silver disks in graduated sizes are threaded at even intervals on a silver rod that is accented with carnelian beads on these space-age earrings.

Ancienne
Precious stones in red form the centers of engraved gold disks from which sparkling, emerald-cut zirconiums in Etruscan green swing on pearl-studded pendulums.

Full Moon
A simple disk in brushed silver forms a glowing halo around an iridescent-blue moonstone on this contemporary-style ring.

Bouquet
A leafy cluster of dainty flowers in pale lavender, lemon, strawberry, and cantaloupe are perched on top of a glass ring in ruby red.

Classic Acorns
Oval, water-clear topaz gems are capped with “passementerie” and accented with embossed-velvet leaves on this understated 30s-style brooch.
