Seeds will Sprout

This very long necklace is my latest creation.  Inspired by the latest trend of stacking necklaces, this necklace is long enough to double up, but also looks great in its full length alongside any other necklace.  It is simple and delicate with different shaped beads of mixed metals and silver spirals, representing seeds and sprouts.  40" long, $98

Fun and simple earrings to coordinate or accent another necklace. $28

Hello Hellebore!

I am always thrilled by the buds emeging from the frosty ground year after year, promising spring, bursting with beauty and life.  Oxidized copper with sterling and brass accents shown, also available in a silver version with brass accents.  See the Garden Collection.  $68



Twigs and Branches

This necklace was inspired by pussywillow, the oddly twisted oxidized brown copper links, pretty little sterling silver buds, and golden leaves create the look of branches and twigs, 30" long, no clasp. $148

 New! Simple and Sweet version has a fun movement, and popular "Y" shape.  

sterling silver, copper and gold, 18" long.  $48
