These adorable laguna agates feature striated purple and red. I gave them an asymmetrical frame of amethyst and red spinel and gave the silver a deep patina. These earrings dangle an inch long and 1/2 inch wide.
Another "flowers on a trellis" piece whose color scheme plays off the most stunning fossilized wood opal from Australia. Flowers are woven with 18k gold wire and petals of pink sapphire, spessartite garnet, pink tourmaline, amethyst and tanzanite. The elongated pear shaped stone at the bottom is an amethyst with needle-like inclusions of hematite. The silver square wires are dotted with gold and swing from a 14k gold tube. The chain adjusts from 16 to 18 inches.
Glowing gold ovals are accented with a cluster of white freshwater pearls on 18k gold headpins. These ovals are a 18k gold and sterling silver bi-metal where solid gold is bonded to a layer of sterling silver.
The gold surface has been given a soft, brushed finish. Earwires are 18k gold. These earrings measure approximately 7/8 of an inch wide and 1 inch long.
Aquamarine, spotted druzy, boulder opal, labradorite with gold and purple flash and natural chalcedony are arranged in a gentle arc, set in 22k gold on a base of oxidized sterling silver. A lush fringe of tourmalines on 18k gold headpins drapes the top edges of the stones and in between each stone--terminating in a champagne citrine briolette. The chain is painstakingly handmade--I call it my "sprout chain" in oxidized sterling. The handmade clasp adjusts from 18 to 20 inches.
I set a gorgeous boulder opal doublet in 18k gold atop an argentium sterling silver baseplate. Along the lower edge is my signature fringe of semi-precious stones on 18k gold heapins. Stones used are faceted tanzanite, smooth teal blue apatite and faceted green tourmaline. The band is a simple silver round band. All metal has been given a soft brushed finish.
