It hangs on a necklace of Chinese green turquoise pumpkin beads, interspersed with little coral beads. The pendant is flanked by a couple of green agate beads.
The necklace is 21" long and finished with an ornamental clasp. Wear it during the day or at an evening do, it will be the only one in the room. Perfect as a gift for someone born in Feb/ early March.
My signature torque necklace is made of sturdy and thick wire, covered with non tarnish enameled silver plated wire, and is 18" in diameter. It carries three bright and beautiful cloisonne enameled dragonflies, and the whole has been wound with yet more wire, with loads of curlicues, representing the flight path of the dragonflies in the necklace. I've used contrasting howlite beads in the hook clasp and extender, why shouldn't the back be as pretty as the front?? This is a necklace that you'll enjoy wearing, light and simple, it's a throw on and forget about it piece - until it is noticed by your friends and they shower you with compliments!
This one is my pièce de résistance for 2018 - the most complicated and beautiful pendant I have made this year, on a necklace of tiger eye beads that seem to glow with an inner fire, separated by little seed pearls. Three tourmaline tear drops drip from the angles of the pendant, made in layers of silver plated tarnish free wire, which although multilayered, remains slim and sleek. The necklace is finished with a beautiful box clasp that holds a ruby.
21" long, and the pendant is 2.8" x 2.5"
A wire doodle bib necklace with a long handmade extender chain ensuring that you can wear it at various levels, depending on your neckline. A beautiful colour-enhanced blue druzy cabochon is set to one side of the piece, anchored down with a wire rose and leaf and a couple of tiny Brazilian rubies. The druzy glints in the light and adds to the beauty of this lovely piece.
Made with mixed metals, both of them enamel coated and therefore tarnish free. The handmade chain is enhanced by clear crystals and a hook mechanism effects closure.
This will be a piece that can be worn to work as it is very simple, light and easy to wear, and can even be worn over a roll neck by simply increasing the length of the extender chain so that the piece hangs a bit lower. Of course, it will look lovely on an evening out, so it is very versatile.
Raw aventurine nuggets in two strands, offset by shiny black agate beads - texture, contrast and colour in this fabulous statement piece. Silver tone spacers and a beautiful box clasp make this a very wearable necklace, 21" long, for a day that requires a chic and expensive statement, without being too colourful.
20" long, with faceted clear quartz beads separated by electroplated haematite. The focal point of this necklace is the large titanium electroplated druzy slab nugget to one side. Irregularly shaped, with central defects allowing the druzy to show through this slab is about 4.8" measured at its widest diameter. The haematite is run into the gap in the slab nugget.
The necklace is comfortable to wear and not too heavy. It ends with a black diamante' infinity lobster clasp. Take this one out on special occasions when you want to be noticed in a one of a kind piece of jewellery.
Fabulous tactile chunks of raw citrine nuggets, silvery quartz points and moldavite, with crystal spacers that glint in the light in a simple but sumptuous necklace, that ends in a box clasp that is inlaid with a vibrant peridot.
For someone who likes to make a quiet statement, and not as colourful as the pieces I usually produce, however, it has a genteel sophistication of it's own and will look great with autumn and winter colours.
The black beads in this necklace are hollow ceramic beads, with pale green crystals between them. The necklace sits close to the neck, with an ornate box clasp to close, at 18.5".
The pendant has yards of wire wound back and forth around a black ceramic bead with a chrysocolla teardrop and little aventurine beads dangling from the pendant. The pendant is asymmetrically pleasing to the eye and this necklace will suit a lady who likes an artisanal touch to her jewellery and appreciates the wonders of a handmade piece. This pendant uses nine feet of the thicker wire and miles of fine wire - I couldn't measure it as I used it right off the spool.
This is a beautiful day to night piece and will be much appreciated, I promise you that!!
An 18" long necklace of black ceramic beads. A wire work pendant holding a little green onyx as well as a black ceramic bead in tarnish resistant silver plated copper wire. A silvery oval bead set asymmetrically to one side breaks the line of the necklace. Ornamental box clasp for closure. Which iteration of Black Beauty will you choose??
19" of beautifully marked grey dragons vein agate in this necklace, accented by pale blue agate which also has a delicate tracery of lines within. A couple of brushed silver plated copper beads and an onyx box clasp increase the beauty quotient of this piece which will look fabulous around your neck.
Wear it to work and of an evening, a versatile piece that will take you anywhere.
Encircling the neck, this choker is made of woven wire which is twisted and swirled over a wire base. It carries a beautiful candy striped lampwork bead in pink candy stripes with blue flowers, accented by a blue crystal. The necklace fits securely around the neck by an integral hook and eye clasp. 22.5" long, it sits close to the base of the neck and has been shaped so that it sits flat against the chest, rather than upright against the neck. An intricate yet playful piece which is very unusual and one of a kind. Non tarnish silver plated wire used throughout. It took me seven days to weave the elements, so I don't see too many of these rolling off the Caprilicious press!
A coffee agate pendant is the centrepiece of this necklace, wire wrapped with copper electroplated seed beads in non tarnish silver plated wire on a 23" long necklace of red quartz beads, interspersed with tiny stardust beads and accented by brushed silver tone flowers. A leaf shaped toggle clasp provides secure and ornamental closure. This necklace glows in the light and no photograph will do it justice.
