Handmade Gemstone and Pearl Necklaces

All my necklaces are handmade in my studio in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. I use Freshwater pearls that I hand drill to fit my premium leather cording. I also use a variety of semi-precious gemstones and Czech glass that I hand crochet using silk or coated nylon. My handmade pendants are all made using bronze or copper metal clay which I fire and polish. My signature pendants are hand cast from my own handmade molds using organic materials that I collect in the forest. All my pieces have a very organic and bohemian look; perfect for layering with multiple pieces.

Crocheted necklaces with handmade pendants

These are one of my bestselling designs. Hand crocheted necklaces on either silk or coated nylon (for durability). They feature a wide variety of colors, gemstones, beads and pearls. Each is unique. Some feature my handmade silver, bronze or copper pendants - all hand sculpted from metal clay, fired and polished.

From 16 to 20 inches in length with a lobster clasp closure. Pendants range from about 3/4 inch to 1.5 inches.

One-Of-A-Kind Pearl Necklaces

This section features a variety of necklaces using all kinds of freshwater pearls in many colors, shapes and sizes. These are fun because I often find a strand of really fun pearls and just want to experiment with different designs. Each is one of a kind and the design will vary based on the shape and color of the pearls. These often include Baroque pearls which are highly popular due to their unique shapes, surface texture and luster.

Bird's Nest Necklaces

Wire wrapped bird's nests - silver or bronze wire with assorted sizes and colors of pearl "eggs". These range from 16 to 18 inches and come on multi-strand ribbon with a lobster clasp or on leather cord with a freshwater pearl button closure.

I've been making these babies for many years now. They come and go based on how sore my finger become!
