Nature Inspired Green and Bronze Leaf Necklace

Nature Inspired Leaf Necklace in Jade Gemstone and Bronze
One of the newest creations released to the public! When I saw this aged brass leaf pendant, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. Between the time I ordered it and when it arrived I had already collected all the different components I'd need to design this handmade jade necklace and was more than a little excited to start the piece.

Made with two-tone crackle glass beads in green and brown combined with pea green jade rounds and lots of little bronze accents, this artisan designed necklace is both elegant and earthy. It has been designed with an extension chain for the clasp, too, allowing it to be worn at a variety of lengths.

Sweet Valentines Charm for Necklace, Purse or Keys

Heart Shaped Key Fob in Pink with I Love You Ring
These little heart shaped beads in pale pink were so sweet I wanted to make something simple and special with them to really show off their shape and presence.

I decided to use them in a pretty little handmade beaded charm that could be worn as a necklace or attached to a fastener to be used as a purse charm, keyring or zipper pull. I love when things are versatile enough to be used however you want to use them.

Made with a soft pink glass heart at the end accompanied with a seamless silver ring and another sweet pink bead, this heart shaped charm carries a great amount of versatility and a romantic and sweet style.
