Above is a new piece I created, Carmel by the Sea. It's made of irregular Mother of Pearls, flanked with clusters of Sea Green & White Cultured Fresh Water Pearls, pale faceted Aquamarine rondelles, Aragonite rounds, 14k Gold Fill rounds, & Swarovski Crystal- Crystal Golden Shadow briolettes, the top is wire-wrapped Cultured Fresh Water Pearls, and it all comes to the center with a hand-wrapped flower, made from faceted Moss Aquamarine, Aqua Chalcedony & Apatite teardrops, with rows of pale Aquamarine faceted rondelles, green Sea Glass rounds, and clusters of Citrine rondelles coming off each strand. At the bottom of each strand sits a facted gemstone including 2 Swarovski Crystal teardrops, and an Apatite, Moss Aquamarine, Prehnite, & Pineapple Quartz teardrop.
This is the Sonoma necklace, also new. It is a hammered copper pendant, wrapped inside with 14k Gold Fill rounds, and 1 row outside of Pink Coral rounds, with a second row of faceted Garnet teardrops. It is suspended from a 14k Gold fill chain with faceted Garnet rondelles & wire-wrapped clusters of more faceted Garnet teardrops.
Last, but not least is a pair of earrings called the Tides Earrings. They are 14k Gold fill, wire-wrapped hoops, wrapped with white Swarovski Crystal pearls around the outside. Inside is a gold loop, and a faceted Aqua Chalcedony teardrop.
