2 new necklaces handmade by me!


I just wanted to show you the 2 new creations Im about to add to the shop. I'm really excited about these two jewelry pieces! For awhile there, I was making my jewelry highly detailed with so many elements to it  - not that it didnt look good, I love EVERY single one! But this time I decided to create something a little simpler - and I just adore how they turned out! Here is my write up about the necklace above:

 "This lovely necklace features a cluster that includes an inch long cobalt blue glass bead, a vertibrae bone from an unknown source and a round faceted brown bead that shimmers blue in the light which is capped with a blackened brass filigree flower. 
Above, connected by a large brass circle, is a hand blackened brass detailed bee - actually - he more looks like a fly doesnt he?! He is a 3 point connection to the flat cable chain that leads to the lobster clasp closure.

This necklace is one of a kind and will not be making another one the same to guarantee that. 
However if you miss out and REALLY liked it, I will make similar!

All of the brass that I use is guaranteed nickel and lead free and is supplied by Fallen Angel Brass Co in New England, USA.




The second one is just as pretty! I really dont know which one I like better - I love them both so much! Here is my write up for this pretty one:

This cluster necklace holds a blackened brass key, a chunk of genuine turquoise, a lil' shell and a brown faceted glass bead that shimmers blue in the shining light. 
A large brass circle connects the cluster to the flat cable chain where on one side a swallow in flight sits right on the collarbone. 
This piece closes with a lobster clasp.

Arent they purdy? The hardest part for me doing this is having to sell them and then they are gone.... lol, I cant keep them all! But I guess knowing that they are making someone else happy is worth it in the end!

Thanks for looking!!
