A smattering of branches and vines on my bench

Little branchy, vine-y "findings" I created today to wrap around some stones...

I'll be using one of them in a necklace with this beauty below...

I've been holding on to this 60 carat silver needled quartz since I returned from Tucson last February!

I'll post the finished pics when the piece is done... I still have a lot of filing and shaping of the branch pieces to do.

Special Edition Birthstone Earrings

My birthday is in September, and to that end I decided to create a pair of special edition flower earrings featuring my birthstone--blue sapphire.

I've been holding onto these sapphires for some time--waiting for a special project. They really are beautiful, high quality stones. I couldn't wrap them in anything less than solid 18 karat gold and wove the flowers with care--these stones are more petite than those I usually work with and weaving these flowers took some patience! Below each six-petal flower I've dangled a gorgeous concave cut of rock crystal quartz.

These little beauties are available now in my etsy shop! Happy September!
