These light colored amethysts were brought to me by Laraine, who wanted me to turn them into a simple pair of silver earrings. I know, they’re violet, but some folks like to refer to them as pink amethysts. I think they’re beautiful no matter what the color is called.
I just added these two new pairs of earrings to the gallery. Handmade of recycled argentium sterling silver, and adorned with amethyst beads (left), and (nearly colorless) blue topaz beads (right). They are called Buds and Freeze.
More work I did last summer, while sailing from Baltimore, MD to Jacksonville, FL. This is a series of four one-of-a-kind necklaces inspired by the magical treasures that can be found where the ocean meets the sand. This series is called Mermaid’s Bangles, and is made of wonderfully fuzzy and seaweed-like crocheted yarn, large agate circles strung on silk thread, and crocheted sterling silver wire dotted with -depending on the piece- amber, fluorite, peridot, citrine, amethyst, blue topaz beads.
