This necklace is named after my aunt who recently passed away. She was full of life and so sweet. I made this piece with copper wire, marbles that I crackled myself, an old earring finding, a button and some vintage beads.

This little owl is named after a friend who is full of fire and passion for life. It has a big heart just like her. The eyes are wrapped with tiny red coral beads. The body has red crystal and red faceted glass beads. Everything is made by hand by me. Even the rose ball headpins were made with my torch.
I've been having lots of fun making jewelry for the upcoming Blue Dome Festival in May. Here are a few pieces I finished. Pink swarovski crystal earrings. These are made from copper wire and vintage flower caps. Wrapped spirals with hematite beads. Fun loopy agate earrings Glass nugget earrings

I stumbled upon this chunky silver cross and wrapped some citrine nuggets on it with copper wire. I love the look of silver and copper together. I'm real fond of this new bail I designed. It is great for interchangeable pendants. I call it the elephant bail. I make them in different sizes depending on the pendant and chain size.

"Speak from the heart" is a unique necklace hand made with copper wire. A wild and beautiful pair of lips are incorporated into the pendant which gives it a romantic "gothic feel" All the findings, including the chain are handmade from copper wire. Attention was given to details as you can see by the rose colored head pins. It is accented with vintage beads and tiny red coral beads. An acrylic briolette dangles from the focal piece. It measures approximately 18 inches in length. It would make a great Valentine's gift.
