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.

Aquamarine Tree of Life Pendant in Rose Gold

A lovely variation on the original March Tree which is set in sterling silver wire, this version is in a non-tarnish Rose Gold wire. Gives a nice contrast between the warmth of the wire and the cool, watery color of the gemstone.

The Tree of Life is a concept that’s been featured in myth, story and legend literally all around the world. Since ancient times, people have used variations on the theme. Connecting all things – the realms of the spirit, the physical, the Divine and the mundane – the roots of the Tree and the branches touch all things and bring them together in harmony.

This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Hand hammered non-tarnish rose gold wire frames and encircles the pendant, and is then used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree.

Aquamarine is a natural, semi-precious gemstone in lovely tones of delicate blue. The birthstone of March, it is said to help you be in touch with your spiritual being. Known as “Water of the Sea” because of it’s color, aquamarine been used by sailors for centuries to protect them on the water. It’s also been long used as a strong meditation aide and when worn as a necklace, it is said to calm and sooth the nerves.

Lariat Style Necklace featuring Bird Nest, Dainty Bird Charm and Leafy Branch

Dainty little bird charm, bird nest and leafy branch come together with chrysocolla gemstone “eggs” all set in sterling silver to make a lovely lariat style necklace.

I started with a delicate sterling silver plated link chain. I next added accents of chrysocolla gemstone which is an amazing stone of blue and green swirled together. (Each bead looks like a little mini planet Earth.) Then I added a leafy branch connector. The chain slips through the last leaf in a faux lariat style and from the chain dangles a bird nest with three additional chrysocolla “eggs.” Below the nest is a flying swallow bird charm. The whole necklace is finished with a toggle clasp.

This asymmetrical design allows you to adjust how you wear it. You can wear it shorter and closer to the neck with a long dangle of the nest, or, you can wear it longer on the neck with a shorter nest dangle. It’s very versatile and allows you to pair this piece with many different shirts and necklines as a result. The total length is 18″

It’s such a sweet little necklace and the color of the chrysocolla is so pretty. It’s just a great piece in it’s simplicity and style!
