A trio of opals in ocean colors comprise this 22K and 14K gold pendant. The center opal is technically a black opal, because it has the presence of manganese. The other two are boulder opals (opals still in the ironstone host rock in which it naturally grows). My initial thought on this piece was to make a series called “Trail Markers.” It morphed into a goddess instead. To accentuate the ocean colors in the pendant, I have strung emeralds which blend into aquamarines.
This oval boulder opal has nice sparkly pin-fire and even has that rare magenta I love so much. The seed pearls are the tiniest ever. The boulder opal measures about 5/8 x 3/8”. This one is much prettier in person. Sterling spring ring clasp.
This jasper focal bead is wonderfully natural and unique. It has a fracture in the center of the stone that I could not capture in the photo though it is easy to see in person. If you are the person that thinks a few flaws add to the beauty of a piece, then this may be the perfect piece for you. It has a chalcedony accent and is strung with citrine pebbles, amazonite, and green jasper tube beads.
This unusual paddle necklace is packed full of fine gems! There is an onion cut Rose d' France amethyst in the center flanked by micro-facetted green sapphires, hot pink tourmalines, tanzanites (the fine deep blue ones), and labradorites. The back is a neutral green citrine. It is strung to 17" on durable wire.
The jasper focal bead in this piece has a spotted bronzy brown pattern. 14k gold fluted beads accent it. There is intense depth to this stone. This funky jasper necklace is strung with amber beads, white pearls and bronze freshwater, cultured, color-enhanced pearls. It is strung to 18.75” on a durable wire with a soldered sterling spring ring clasp.
This feminine boulder opal necklace has smooth kyanite roundesl segmented between carved moonstone leaves in peach, white, and gray that match the colors in the opal. The necklace strung to 17.5 inches with small, fresh water, cultured, potato pearls. This is a special piece that nicely mixes warm and cool tones.
Jaspers in the pendant are teamed with tanzanite pebbles and fresh water cultured, color-enhanced pearls. It has a sterling spring ring clasp.
Since opening my showroom in Bar Harbor, I’ve learned that sea glass jewelry is in high demand. I love the stuff, but have intentionally stayed away from it because I used to apprentice with a woman who made it her trademark. At the time, not so many designers were making jewelry with it. We live on the same island. Therefore, I kept my distance from the material for 15 years.
The briolette focal bead is a whopping 1 3/8” long! Yes, I said INCHES. This is a gorgeous, large piece. Only purchase this piece if you are very careful with your jewelry because fluorite is soft and can not be thrown into a pouch for travel. The pendant is spectacular! It looks like the color of mint tourmalin!
14k Gold and great clarity, color, cut, shape and size! I love everything about this one.
The boulder opal pendant measures 1” x ½”. It is strung on rich brown color-enhanced, fresh water cultured pearls with a spring ring clasp.
This sapphire stick bracelet is an alloy that is almost pure silver. It is strung on a flexible, durable wire.
This bracelet has clusters of smooth AAA quality tourmalines. Some of them are even watermelon or bicolor! Almost pure silver jack beads segment them. This is a wonderful look sure to get compliments because I wore one out the other night and so many people like it.
This old world look is hard to achieve! 22k gold, with diamonds. Very pretty!
No custom sizing. About a size 6
This piece is dramatic. The shorter waves are 22k gold. The longer waves are 14k. The Boulder opals are all fabulous. It is strung to 17 inches on a durable wire.
This is a unisex ring. The stone is a genuine black opal from Australia. The black opal measures 7/8” x 5/8” It is a freeform shield shape but is hand-cut with great dimension and a superior luster. The setting is a 22k and 14k gold marriage of metals. It is about a size 10 ¾. It is a fabricated one of a kind piece.
Intense teal color enhanced, fresh water, cultured pearls, light blue topaz facetted beads, apatites, labradorites and chalcedony create a unique overall look with this jasper focal necklace. It is strung to 20 inches in length on wire with a sterling spring ring clasp.
Three gorgeous Australian boulder opals make the sails and hull of this lovely little sailboat pendant/enhancer. This piece is a marriage of metals.
