Two color options, sterling silver with black onyx or brass, copper and sterling silver with red carnelian. $248

Flowers for fall? Oxidized copper with sterling and brass accents make the perfect flower for fall...Hellebore always blooms in late winter to brighten our spirits with the promise of spring. These oxidized copper blossoms reflect the shadowy beauty of the hellbore flower.  Also available in sterling silver with brass, 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




Soon they will be floating and dancing their way into our hearts. Of course no two are alike, so the pair is mismatched... and they appear to actually float under your ears!  Very light weight sterling silver, hand pierced and cut, so slight variations will occur. $48
