My Latest Custom Design: Green, Pink and Brown Heart Charm Bracelet $150

My Latest Custom Design: Green, Pink & Brown Heart Charm Bracelet
I just finished this original custom bracelet for a client in Quebec who ordered my $150 Personalized Chunky Heart Charm Bracelet and requested the colors green, pink and brown and silver and bronze for the metals.
This is a great choice for anyone and especially for a gift because you choose the colors and you can be sure it will be a completely original, one-of-a-kind bracelet. And as I use materials on hand to create it, I am charging $150 for what would normally be a $200 piece. I use a mix of gemstone, metals, glass, high quality metals and then other unique materials that fit the color choices, for example in this piece I also use pink tagua nut and wood beads.
I can also substitute the charm for a cross, coin, peace sign, tribal piece or pretty much whatever you want. If you want something really specific or expensive, there may be an extra cost of course.
Anyway, get one of these great pieces for yourself or for a gift...Valentine's Day is coming up!!

Hot off the Bench: Sterling Silver, Cobalt Blue and Turquoise Leather Necklace

Sterling Silver, Cobalt Blue and Turquoise Leather Fringe Necklace
Aphrodite: $175

This fun one-of-a-kind handcrafted artisan necklace is full of character and unique components and textures. This mixed media design features a great mix of old and new elements all brought together with beautiful sterling silver wire work.

I designed this fantastic necklace around the 3 old Venetian millefiori "African" glass trade beads. The beads are historically called African trade beads, as they were created in Venice during the European expansion period beginning in the early 1800’s with the sole purpose of trading them to Africa for gold, ivory, palm oil and slaves. Millefiori is an Italian word meaning "one thousand flowers" and it specifically refers to the multi-layered wound mosaic glass beads which were produced prolifically in Venice during this time period. These beads were made much the same way that cane beads are made today, but more crudely. They have a less finished look which gives them so much natural character and individuality. You can almost feel the history of these beads as you look at them and touch them. They are old beads that have been traded in history showing their age and use with some imperfections such as chipping and pitting.

The large silver focal bead is an old bead from Ethiopia, handcrafted and full of soul! The other components include turquoise, cobalt glass from Tibet, saffron yellow magnesite discs, Thai bronze washers and turquoise blue leather.

This necklace measures 20" around the neck closing with a gorgeous sterling silver s-hook clasp and 5" of additional chain. The tassel portion is about 11" long.

Hot off the Bench: Bold Turquoise, Amber and Brass Choker Necklace

African Inspired Turquoise, Amber & Ornate Brass Ball Choker Necklace

Ashanti Choker Necklace $225

I designed this beautiful, one-of-a-kind artisan choker necklace around the stunning, ornate brass bead from Ghana. This bead was handmade by the Ashanti tribe of Kumasi, Ghana using the "lost wax" method which has been passed down from generation to generation for centuries. These beads are made, one by one, by weaving wax "wires" into a form, investing them in clay, burning out the wax and pouring molten brass into the mold. Each mold is hand made making each bead slightly different from the next, and each having it's own wonderful character.

This unique and exotic necklace also features 3 stunning, large natural turquoise nuggets that have a beautiful palette of blues and browns, 3 large vintage resin beads, one honey gold amber and the other two saffron yellow, an exotic Tibetan silver and amber resin bead, a hammered copper bead from the Karen Hill Tribe in the northern mountains of Thailand and green patinaed terra cotta beads from Greece.

This dramatic necklace is made to fit as a choker and has a 4" chain extender to adjust for size.
