This is a heart pendant in solid 14 K gold on a gold link chain. It was designed after the necklace featured in “Love Actually” a very funny British movie. This one has a garnet, but rubies work well too. The gold finish is sand blasted. This makes the gold look matte and thus the bling of the stone pops out!
A beautiful aquamarine (emerald cut). These gems are expensive, clear and transparent, and blue. It is one of my favorite stones. The setting is a simple frame in brushed 14 K gold and the chain runs right through it. Gifted to my little sister.
Fine silver hammered links, some in heart shapes. This is a 60 inch chain that can be wrapped up to 3 times around the neck. Fine silver can be fused (as opposed to Sterling which must be soldered) – its a nicer look and it does not tarnish!
Horseshoe pendant in gold and silver with 6 champagne diamonds. The piece is about 1.5 inches tall and hollowed in back, but still quite heavy (like a real iron horseshoe). I like horses. Along time ago I dreamed of being a vet!
Silver dog paw with brown diamonds. Reminds me of my dog Kenda!
Every now and then I get a chunk of gem stone like this turquoise from the Cusco (Peru) market where they sell you a mined rock for a dollar! I cut a slab and mounted it in a silver bezel and added a black leather neck band. Belonged to my friend Kate who loved turquoise.
