Drop dead gorgeous treasury featuring my Antoinette necklace. Composed of pink amethyst double concave cut ovals with a single larger step faceted oval hand linked with 14 karat gold fill wire to create the chain. Closes with a 24 karat gold vermeil clasp. The length is versatile- it can be worn as a single long necklace or doubled to form a choker. Perfection!
Some incredible bracelets by other designers using AAA gemstones and precious metals. Fantastic company to be in!
It takes forever for a piece to go from an inkling in my mind to a listing on Etsy. The majority of the time it takes to get it listed goes towards getting the photos right. Sometimes it takes multiple attempts to get a few usable shots. Then the hard part starts- finding a way to describe it that will do it justice. My thesaurus has gotten a serious workout since I started selling on Etsy.
A riot of feminine colored gemstones burst forth in this lovely creation. The focal is composed of a 36 carat round checkerboard faceted ametrine (amethyst and citrine in the same stone) topped with a cascade of delicious gemstones. This lush display includes sapphire in shades of pink, green, violet, and blue along with pale green prasiolite, step cut dark purple amethyst rondelles, raspberry pink tourmaline pear briolettes, and tourmaline in shades of blue, green, and pink. A large, smooth sterling silver bead tops the gems and holds them securely in place. The chain is entirely hand fabricated by wire wrapping large amethyst hand faceted rondelles, pink amethyst octogons, prasiolite cross drilled cubes, and rock crystal faceted nuggets with sterling silver wire. Two bursts of colored gemstones place asymmetrically along the length draw the eye along the length of the chain. It closes with a sterling silver hook and eye clasp flanked by dark purple amethyst faceted rondelles.
The necklace measures roughly 23 inches long, with a nearly 2 inch drop for the pendant.

If you want the highest quality gemstones without having to sell any vital organs, you should head over to Suay Gems shop on Etsy. Run by the awesome Jaki, who lives in Bangkok, the gems are mouth watering without breaking the bank. She's super easy to work with, and the shipments are relatively fast (they are coming to me from across the globe). All of my gems have arrived wrapped up nicely in cotton in a mirrored Oriental print fabric covered hard sided box. (Whew! That was a mouthful.) Jaki is my very first stop for all things glittery. You can make her your first stop, too.
A little bit about me. I'm an Army brat that's finally somewhat settled after a childhood spent....everywhere. We just moved to Upstate South Carolina, and I've got to say, I love it here!
