It’s Summer Now!!

PLEASE NOTE:  MOST OF THE PENDANTS IN THIS POST AND OLDER HAVE BEEN SOLD

I just got back from my biannual family reunion in mid June, where I always take my jewelry and let my cousins buy whatever they like at cost.  (they like that!)  So that means, my cupboards are kind of bare.  However, I have added couple of new necklaces plus a couple that I re-did the wiring and like a lot better now.  Now, on the first of July I have added even more!   Enjoy!

golden sheen obsidian
Golden Sheen Obsidian. This is the only wrapable Golden Sheen Obsidian Stone that I found at the Obsidian pits west of Kanosh Utah a couple of weeks ago. In the sun the pattern glows a beautiful golden against the black background. I have wrapped the stone in gold nontarnishing 21 gauge wire wrap and strung it on a simple gold chain 18 inches in length with a gold magnet clasp. The stone itself measures about 1 3/4 inches x 1/2 inch and the finished pendant measures about 2 5/8 inches long. One of a kind for sure. $15.00

 

 

pink agate 1
SOLD!!  Pink Agate Cabochon:   This gorgeous stone is a pink agate…It is the full size 30 x 40 cc which equals about an inch and three-quarters by 1 and 3/4 wide. I have wrapped it in silver and it is strung on a sterling silver snake chain with a silver toned magnet. The whole pendant is about 2 3/4 ” in length finished. With matching earrings not shown, made of a single dangle of varied pink 6mm Swarovski crystals this set will sell for $25.00

 

iron pyrite 3
Iron Pyrite Cube – Did you know that iron pyrite grows in the rock as a cube or rectangle!! The back view of the iron pyrite shows an interesting occlusion so I wrapped it so that it could be worn either direction – front or back
iron pyrite 2
The 21 gauge nontarnishing golden wire that I wrapped it in is called Champagne gold, it is a softer gold that matches the color of the iron pyrite perfectly. I added the magnet closure for easy on and off. $20.00

tusher jasper 1

SOLD!! – Tushar Mountain Jasper #1

With a husband that grew up in Beaver Utah, and spent his summers roaming the Tushar mountains just East of Beaver we were excited to see that they had their own Jaspar!

 This stone is wrapped in a soft rose gold wire wrap that pulls out the colors in the stone.  I am going to have to work harder to get a good picture of the soft pinks and mauves that are natural in this piece of polished rock.  It is so beautiful.   Check back in a couple of days to see if I have updated the picture.

Also I am excited to say that there will be several more Tushar jasper necklaces available as I wrap them – they go from warm peach tones to grays and whites.

 This necklace will sell for $15 with a shaded copper colored  chain

Vintag’ Leaf

About three years ago I discovered a fun new form of jewelry design called Vintag’ painting.  I would take a plain metal pendant and paint it with special metal paints then bake them, then put a finish coat on and bake it again and then put a sparkle coat on and bake it again and then the final finish coat and the final ‘bake’.   I did so many of them I gave my self tendonitis so I had to stop.   I pulled out a few of my blank pendants and painted them this week – if I do just a few, it doesn’t hurt!   This beautiful leaf is approximately 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ and hangs from a double chain of copper and bronze with a magnet closure.   $12.00
