Custom Gold and Peridot Set

I had a customer contact me in regards to a pair of 14k Gold Vermeil and Peridot Bali-inspired earrings I had made and sold. She really loved them and wanted another pair just like them. In addition, she wanted a bold, matching necklace and bracelet. We discussed her vision and I showed her my ideas and off I went!

I recently finished the set and I think it’s stunning.

bali inspired 14k gold vermeil and peridot necklace

This is a big, beautiful, set featuring very high-end materials. Vermeil is pure gold over sterling silver, making it beautiful and wearable. The peridot is all micro-faceted and in a stunning, rich, Spring green color. Together, they are just exceptional. Every piece of gold, from ball-tipped head pins, the detailed spacers, to clasps to chain is real 14k vermeil gold or better. The giant focal pendant is 23k vermeil gold!

This amazing set is an example of a luxury custom request. The buyer wanted something truly special and I was excited by the chance to create something so lovely. If you’re interested in your own custom order – be it high-end like this, or something within a budget – please don’t hesitate to contact me. I love creating unique, personalized creations!

Whimsical Swarovski Crystal and Silver Dangle Earrings

Highly detailed Bali style sterling silver plated beads are accented with several tones of blue and grey Swarovski crystal and crystal stars that dangle from silver chain.

I started with sterling silver plated Bali beads with a decorative pattern of flower petal like swirls and grape-like dots. These handcrafted beads are purposefully oxidized to bring out the depth of the pattern.

On top is an AB Swarovski crystal in Montana Sapphire; a blue-grey hue. Underneath, is a faceted round crystal, then three lengths of dainty sterling silver plated chain. A faceted blue-grey round, a small capri blue bicone and a clear crystal star dangle from each of the three chains. The earrings are finished with sterling plated leverback hooks.

The earrings are a total length of approximately 3″ long. They shimmer and sparkle because of the natural movement of the chain and the high refraction of the crystals. The Bali beads give it a look of a prayer bead to me. It has a mystical, Eastern feel and yet is also fun and whimsical.

Snowman Earrings and Snowman withSnowflake Necklace

Maybe it’s just because we’re having a bit of a cold front here today in Florida or maybe it’s that because of surgery, I kinda had to miss out on Halloween, but either way, I’m starting to get into the holiday mood. So I made up two items in a Winter spirit that I’m going to share.


These cute little snowmen dangle earrings are made from glass pearls and Swarovski crystal. On a .925 sterling silver hook, it’s a perfect accessory for Winter!

I made these adorable little earrings with two sizes of glass pearl with an AB (Aurora Borealis) Swarovski crystal spacer in between. It’s topped with some black glass beads to form the “hat.” I used stamped, .925 Sterling Silver French hooks to complete it to ensure there are no problems for people with metal allergies or sensitivities.


This necklace features a cute snowmen made from glass pearls and Swarovski crystal accented with a snowflake charm. On a 18″ silver chain, it’s a perfect accessory for Winter!

I made this adorable little snowman pendant with two sizes of glass pearl with an AB (Aurora Borealis) Swarovski crystal spacer in between. It’s topped with some black glass beads to form the “hat.” Then I added a glittery snowflake charm and strung it on a 18″ sterling silver plated chain and finished it with a lobster claw clasp.

Both pieces are available in the Gifts Under $25 category on the PhoenixFire Designs esty shop.

Rainbow Gemstone Threader Sterling Silver Earrings

Six genuine gemstones (ruby, yellow sapphire, emerald, blue topaz, amethyst and white topaz) form a rainbow of color on sterling silver ear threads.

I started with a sterling silver, ball tipped headpin and then strung six genuine gemstones on. All gemstones are high quality, micro faceted rondelles. The ear threads are .925 sterling silver as well and thus hypoallergenic for those sensitive to some metals.

The gemstones used in the piece starting from the bottom are:

* Ruby – one of four precious gemstones and the birthstone of July

* Yellow Sapphire – Another of the four precious gemstones, sapphire comes in many colors including this lovely yellow. Traditionally blue sapphire is the birthstone of September.

* Emerald – the third precious gemstone in this piece, emerald is the birthstone of May and an amazing green stone without peer.

* Blue Topaz – A semi-precious stone, blue topaz has a crystal clear blue sky color. It’s an alternative birthstone for December.

* Amethyst – Long associated with royalty, amethyst is a gorgeous and rich purple tone. This semi-precious stone is the birthstone of February.

* White Topaz – White topaz is a flawlessly clear crystal stone. It’s used as an alternative to diamond for April’s birthstone. Also semi-precious.

Threader style earrings allow you to adjust how long or short you wish to wear them. The gemstones measure about .25″ in length and the total length of the threader plus gems is right around 3.25″

They’re dainty and feminine. They would be a lovely gift for someone who likes rainbow colors, or who is interested in chakra healing and colors.

They would also be a very special gift for a young woman who may not want or need a large pair of earrings but for whom a pair of sterling silver gemstone earrings would be a special gift. It could be a pair of “grown up” jewelry all her own.

I only have the one pair of these at this time as I put them together with the extra gems leftover after other projects. To individually purchase this many stones to make a pair would be quite expensive so this is a great way to get some high quality gems in a lovely little, affordable package.

Ruby and Rainbow Moonstone Gemstone Heart Earrings in Sterling Silver

Precious gemstone Ruby (birthstone of July) is paired with mystical Rainbow Moonstone in these chandelier style sterling silver earrings in a heart shape.

For these sweet earrings, I started with a .925 sterling silver heart finding. From that, I have five dangles of gemstones. Each dangle is on a sterling silver ball-tipped headpin and features genuine, natural precious ruby gemstone and natural semi-precious moonstone rondelles. They are finished with sterling silver hooks and measure a little over 1.25″ from the top to the bottom of the longest drop.

These are lovely earrings. The sweetheart shape makes them equally wearable everyday or for a special occasion. A gift for a July baby, someone you love or just as a special treat for yourself!

About the Gemstones Used
* Ruby is one of the rare, precious gemstones (along with Emerald, Diamond and Sapphire.) Ruby is known as the most powerful gem in the universe. To own a ruby is to know contentment and peace. Given as a gift, ruby is the stone of friendship and love. It’s also associated with vitality and royalty. It is the birthstone of July. The rubies used in this piece are 100% natural gemstone, grade A+ Micro faceted rondelles.

* Rainbow moonstone is an amazing stone that’s almost impossible to photograph. The stone is “alive” with natural iridescent fire and a color shift towards blue in various types of light. Moonstone is of course associated with the Moon and with the Goddess Diana. It’s a powerful stone said to protect those of a sensitive nature and bring good emotions to the wearer. Because of it’s tie to emotions and the moon, it’s said to be a woman’s gemstone. It is also an alternative birthstone for June. (Traditionally pearl.)

Chrome Diopside and Quartz Dangle Earrings in Sterling Silver

Though I’m still out on unpaid medical leave and will be for some time now (see all the details here), it seems like there are just never enough hours in the day! Not enough time to make, photograph, edit and list items let alone promote them. But here’s one I managed to get listed tonight. I have a few more things which are going to be listed soon but for now, this is the first of them.

Stunning gemstone earrings set all in sterling silver featuring 10mm AA-Grade Crystal Quartz Onion Briolette surrounded by amazing Chrome Diopside Rondelles with White Topaz Accents.

I started these stunning earrings with flawless, AA-grade Crystal Quartz in a 10mm onion shaped briolette. It’s faceted and clear as ice. Then I strung one of my all-time favorite gemstones, Chrome Diopside, on ball-tipped sterling silver headpins and made a cluster on top of the quartz. Above that are two white topaz faceted rondelles to finish out the earrings. They are finished with .925 sterling silver leverbacks.

Chrome Diopside isn’t as well known as other gemstones and though it has an ugly name, it’s one of the most stunning gems you’ll ever find. The color is so rich, so deep and so intense it just doesn’t seem real. But this is an all natural, untreated gemstone and the amazing vibrancy of the green paired with the cool icy perfection of the quartz makes for a really stunning look.

They measure just about 1.45″ in total length from top of leverback to bottom of the quartz. All findings in these are .925 sterling silver. The headpins also have little round balls on the tips giving them more interest and style.

Chrome Diopside is also called “Siberian Emerald” because of it’s rich, amazing green. Many people say Chrome Diopside is what Emerald wishes it could be when it grows up! The name Diopside is derived from the Greek word ‘di’ meaning two, and ‘opsis’, meaning vision. Diopside is believed to be a creative stone, increasing creative visualization and helping to manifest desired goals. Found only in remote Siberia, it can only be mined three months of the year making it a rare and valuable gemstone.
