Middle Earth

This hand made copper choker is adorned with dyed Serpentine Jasper Sapphire beads. I shaped, swirled and then hammered segments and linked them together to give the piece movement.

Netted quartz crystal

I custom made this necklace with the stones Carnelian and natural quartz crystal. Carnelian has the metaphysical properties that aid in understanding the inner self and strengthens concentration. It helps one to overcome the ear of public speaking, increases the self worth, and is a fast acting stone to succeed in one's career.
Carnelian is said to assist in stimulating creativity. It seems to have a clearing effect, dispelling negative energies as it replaces them with positive ones. This can make it easier to find   direction, and its grounding effects can make it easier for you to feel in control of your life.

Ancient Egyptians carried it on and about their bodies as a source of constant renewal and vitality. It was also told in the Egyptian Book of the Dead to be placed in tombs as "magic armor" for life after death  This makes carnelian a good stone for people who feel like they are going nowhere. 

Custom earrings
