This pieces strays a little from my usual style but, I had all these pretty crystals and pearls calling me.:) It still has the look of elegance that is easy on your wallet. It is a twisted wire technique that involves making sections and then connecting them together. I used copper wire. I also got a kick out my daughter's face after I told her I named the piece after her.:)Loved her big cheesy smile.:)
This bracelet has natural iridescent shell beads that reflect colors of gray, silver and black. One strand has a beautiful black agate for a focal bead. The crystals in smokey topaz and white give it lots of sparkle. I used a magnetic silver toned clasp which makes sure it stays secure and has an ornate look.
I made this necklace with some wild striped Agate beads. I alternated mother of pearl beads with black faceted glass beads. Bold copper chain links separate the beautiful stone beads.

The frame of the key was shaped into heart shaped clover leaves and then hammered for strength. It is wrapped with tiny green seed beads and a little swarovski crystal bead. The shank is coiled and weaved with 26Ga copper wire. It turned out even larger then my red Key of Passion pendant. I got it finished just in time for Saint Patrick's Day.:)

I made another necklace to add to my "natural collection." It is crocheted with a rust colored cord and has beautiful carnelian beads. It is very strong and very comfortable to wear. It clasps together with a gold tones heart toggle. It measures approximately 18 1nches in length.
