A fabulous Lampwork glass Icicle drop with swirls of amber and gold is suspended from a
strand of black vintage glass spires with a brass hook and long extender chain
simple, so pretty and yet so dynamic to wear
and all at a great price point.
A true work of art, this luminescent & matt finished lampwork glass bead has
lustrous shades of muted olive and soft sea foam green. Finished at both ends with
fancy Thai sterling caps, it is suspended from a strand that incorporates African Jasper
heishi, two unique faceted teardrop Labradorite, tiny white seed pearls and faceted
art glass. A Bali sterling “S” clasp with extender chain finish the piece which also
has a number of Bali sterling caps & spacers. This a stunning piece both in design
and elements and also has the type of coloration that tends to “chameleon” what ever
it is worn with. Timeless in design, it will become a favorite for years to come.
The coordinating earrings sell for $46.
Aqua the color of Caribbean waters with sparkle to match, this choker and earring set
is simply beautiful to behold. The aqua quarts beads are faceted and graduated ending
with a Bali sterling “S” clasp and a 3” extender. Three custom made lampwork glass
beads coordinate perfectly with the quartz and a matched set of Bali sterling beads has
been used as spacers.
Coordinating earrings $42
Big, bold and beautiful, but still very feminine, this lampwork glass heart in pink and
tiger print has a subtle little message, a pink cancer ribbon. It’s a fun and sophisticated
all at once. The strand was created with six matching lampwork glass ‘bumpy’ beads,
black onyx, faceted artisan glass and small pieces of spiny oyster at the end of the
strand. Bali sterling pieces are sprinkled through as well as the “S” clasp and extender chain.
Coordinating earrings $47
A lovely piece of brown Jade is beautifully carved with a pair of birds topping the pendant.
The strand is composed of extremely well matched melon carved flat jasper rounds and is
finished with a coiled sterling “S” clasp and extender. A very nice statement piece,
but also simple enough to wear with a sport outfit.
A relic-like brass pendant and pair of beads (African Trade), along with a
brass clasp and long extender are beautifully offset by two olive copal
Tibetan silver wrapped coin beads and a pair of green Egyptian scarabs.
A wonderful mix of cultures, the balance of the strand was made with green
turquoise and old brass rings.
Eight strands of glass African Trade heishi beads in shades of turquoise have
just enough small silver Trade beads mixed in to make them interesting. A 3”
extender chain takes this piece from 19 ½” to 22 ½”. In the center, a large
sterling enhancer holds a 2” polymer clay pendent which can be removed and
another pendant added or the whole thing can be put on another necklace
whatever. But one thing you’ll realize right away is that the multi strand
necklace looks great all by itself
and just think about all the possibilities
that exist. Gorgeous color and a really cool piece!!!
Separated by natural turquoise heishi beads, a graduated strand of large spiny
oyster shell disks in beautiful shades of orange, golden and ivory flank a
spectacular melon cut turquoise wedge bead that is capped on each side by
large Thai sterling caps. The “S” clasp and extender chain are also sterling.
The earrings are heavily carved turquoise tubes with sterling caps at both ends with a
large Peruvian sterling shield post and sell for $48
Matt finished and exquisite is the only way to describe this Jack Roberts Lampwork
glass tube bead of brown, blue and translucent ivory which has been capped with large
Thai sterling leaves. The strand, a symmetry of perfectly coordinated colors, consists
of oversized carved lapis rounds, melon carved serpentine and two large Tibetan chevron
beads with engraved sterling caps. Pulling it all together are brown & blue faceted
artisan beads and sterling findings. The “S” clasp and chain give it a range of
22” to 25” at the full length of the extender.
Coordinating earrings have been created with thin Lampwork disks and Bali sterling at $42
