Steampunk Penny Farthing Necklace

This Steampunk necklace features a vintage inspired Penny Farthing bicycle charm in brass, accented with watch gears, roses, butterfly charm and crystal on 18″ chain.

This piece starts with a large, decorative Penny Farthing bicycle pendant in brass (or antique, aged gold color) measuring 3″ at it’s widest and 2.5″ at it’s tallest.

I have then embellished it with several accents including a large aqua/turquoise blue rose on the front wheel, genuine watch gears on the smaller back wheel (including a genuine, precious ruby in the clock movement), and a tiny Swarovski crystal in the gears.

There is also a butterfly charm added to the front wheel and two chains dangling from the bottom. The chains are mixed metals; one is a textured brass chain, the other, a silvery black metallic. Small, matching flowers in aqua/turquoise and orange/peach hang from the chains.

The pendant is finished with a 3-in-1 bronze chain and spring ring clasp with a total length of chain plus pendant of approximately 22″

It’s fun, whimsical and has a nice Victorian/Vintage style and feel.

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.

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.

14K Gold Earrings Featuring Rainbow of Genuine Gemstones

A classically simple, dainty pair of earrings in 14k gold featuring a rainbow of genuine gemstones.

I started with a 14k gold filled, ball tipped headpin and then strung six genuine gemstones on. All gemstones are high quality, micro faceted rondelles. The French hooks are 14k plated 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

* Imperial Topaz – a very rare form of topaz, these are pale yellow in color. Topaz is the birthstone of November and is semi-precious.

* Green Tourmaline – Tourmaline comes in a variety of colors and this one is a lovely olive tone. Tourmaline is semi-precious.

* Blue Topaz – Another 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.

The earrings measure a total length just shy of 1.5″ long. 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 14k gold 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.

Helm Chain Mail Bracelet in Silver and Gold

I recently learned a new technique – chain mail! My first pattern is known as the “Helm Chain” or “Parallel Chain.” This deceptively simple pattern features interlocked silver-plated and gold-plated rings into a classic, elegant pattern.

The bracelet is 7.5″ in length and is finished with an antique goldtone toggle clasp. Easily worn both everyday and for special occasions, this piece will get compliments when worn.

Whether as a gift, or for yourself, this, unique, signature piece would be a great addition to anyone’s jewelry collection.
