So this is my color. It is a rich, kicky mandarin-orange. These starbursts have a sterling daisy accent and vermeil (gold over silver) twirlies at the base. They hang from sterling silver earwires.
So fun to make, this piece easily came together out of my love for PURPLE! The central stone in this design is actually a Black opal but it screams PURPLE and lives happily next to the trillion amethyst in this lacy design. The construction is a marriage of metals in 22k and 14k gold.
Lisa Joy (my best friend and companion in Tucson) actually found this Australian artist and stone cutter. For me it is a match made in heaven. He did not have these black opal beauties in his cases, but Lisa is such a talker that she got him to pull out all of his back stock for an exclusive showing.
This is a special multi color HUGE tourmaline baguette briolette. It is strung to 17.75” with multi color spinels and fresh water cultured pearls.
This jasper necklace is very subtle yet it flirts with color. Lavender tanzanite pebbles, facetted citrines, and facetted quartz are accented with sterling silver daisy beads.

It is strung to 16.5” long on a durable flexible wire with a soldered spring ring clasp.

The white, freshwater cultured pearls are very round and of great quality with a beautiful luster. It is 17” long with a sterling spring ring clasp.
This beautiful necklace looks so soft and feminine. The jasper has tans and lavenders so I have added a touch of sparkle by teaming it with light ametrine facetted beads and baguettes and roundels. This necklace is strung to 17.5 inches in length and has a spring ring clasp.

This opal is mostly a bluish boulder opal but I really like this opal mostly because it has one pinpoint flash of orange that is really intense. So intense, that it is clear why flash is also called fire. You can see this flash perfectly framed in a white spot in the upper right quadrant of the stone.
