My handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces feature recycled glass beads, sterling silver, and gemstones. This venture was spawned by my love of changing necklaces with every outfit paired with my desire to be a change in the world. Enjoy!

And the Beet Goes On...
Beets made a double appearance on my dinner table tonight - beet-asiago gnocchi for dinner and chocolate-beet cake for dessert - so it's no surprise I gravitated to some beet-colored druzy nuggets when I sat down to make some jewelry this evening.
Druzy quartz is a thin layer of quartz crystals covering the surface of a host stone. A good example of druzy is the layer of crystals inside the cavity of a geode. These, I believe, are agate and are not naturally this color. But I love them.
Don't worry, I have more of these nuggets, but this piece is mine, all mine! Beet-colored druzy nuggets are handwired with sterling silver and three different shades of recycled red glass to form this one-of-a-kind necklace.
