Long Copper Necklaces with some Sterling and Stone Bead Accents

As the price of Silver has been dramatically increasing over the past year or so I was forced to consider using some alternative metals. I am actually crazy about the look of copper - especially when it has been oxidized using Liver of Sulfur and then polished back up to a matte sheen by using steel wool. It has a certain warm glow to it and a very unique look.

Spring is Here !

Wow !  Blogger has changed since the last time I posted. So this is a test to see how the new layout/font  looks...
As for this pretty necklace it will take you through Spring and into the hot Summer Months..It's got some umph but it is still lightweight and "airy".  

I have made this general design several times in the past but they have each had their own quirks and I like to mix up the different stones and chains. However the "skeleton" of each pendant in this collection follow the same concept ...Presently you can find this one http://www.etsy.com/listing/94047973/carnelian-and-sterling-wire-wrapped for sale in my etsy shop  !!! 

If you have a stone preference let me know and I will see what I have or can find to customize one just for you !

All metal findings are 92.5 Sterling Silver

Pearl Earrings and a link to Debra's blog

Here is a link to a fun blog that showcases antiques and vintage treasures.

Debra is her name and she is having her readers link up something that they created so I posted this pair of pearl earrings from my etsy store. I have made this certain style for quite a few years now and once- a long, LONG time ago - they were photographed for a magazine spread in a Martha Stewart Wedding issue. Click on the photo of the model - You can just see the earrings peeking out from underneath her side rolls. I want to fix my hair like hers- So stinkin cute !
