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!

Plum Blossom Necklace and Earring Set for the Carmel Foundation
A good friend of mine is the development manager for The Carmel Foundation, so when she told me she was working on their auction, I got busy making a donation for the cause. Cabaret is the theme for this year's event, but I was stumped on making a piece in that vein; so I ended up with a floral motif set in deep greens and purple.
I hope she likes...and I hope it does well at the auction.
Sterling silver flowers - featured on the pendant, on the toggle, and in the earring findings - are handwired with grossular garnet nuggets, recycled purple glass nuggets, purple charoite rounds, green labradorite rounds, and rhyolite ovals.
Earrings feature green and purple fluorite nuggets, hanging from sterling silver French wires.
