Well here is my latest creation. I used turquoise and jasper stones and hand knotted the sections along the brown cording.
Pewter charms added that extra whimsy.
I had so much fun designing this necklace. It is versatile enough to be dressed up or down.
I just ordered some sterling silver charms to make a more expensive version of this necklace.
It is featured in my shop at www.JacquelineVDesigns.etsy.com and is listed for $35.00.
Have a productive day and thanks for visiting my blog.

Well, I have to say I am having a great couple of days. I sold the necklace from my previous post on Saturday, and this necklace pictured I just sold today.

I have made and sold about 6 of these necklaces so far. I have done them in brown cording and in black cording. Although it is extremely tedious since the charms are all hand tied, it seems that this necklace is so popular with my customers.

I use different charms in silver and pewter, hearts, crosses, pictures of the Madonna. And I string amber glass beads for depth of color.

This necklace sells for $50.00. Well, have a great and productive day.

This is my newest piece. Just for fun. I happen to adore costume jewelry. Its fun, colorful and versatile. This necklace features a faux amber pendant. I strung amber and gold seed beads with copper tone accent beads and natural stones. The toggle clasp is shaped like a heart.

So cute and fun. Great to dress up an outfit in the brown or ivory family.

It's listed in my shop for $35.00. www.JacquelineVDesigns.etsy.com.

Well off to design more jewelry... Have a great day....

This is a lovely necklace. It features a large mother of pearl and marcasite pendant. I used black onyx and opal swarovski crystals surrounded by sterling silver bead caps for extra depth and versatility. In the center of the necklace on either side I featured a grey Swarovski pearl surrounded by sterling silver bead caps. I like breaking up the bead strands I happen to think that it gives my necklaces more character and make them unique. Not to mention that I just happen to like the way it looks.

You can find more of my work of course on my website: www.JacquelineVDesigns.etsy.com

Have a great day everyone.

Now that Spring is almost here, I have a burst of creativity. I have been working on some new desings over the winter and had a lot of fun designing them.
I tend to gravitate towards Marcasite and Onyx in the winter. I like the elegance and versatility of it.
Now that Spring is fast approaching I will start designing some necklaces and bracelets with more "SUN KISSED" qualities.
Citrine, amber, quartz will make beautiful jewelry. I always like to have fun pieces in the summer. Lots of whimsy...
Well, off to work....
