I’ve added a new technique, stamped pendants, which you can see below. For more details regarding the following items visit my shop, Rejardin.
Imperfect World Earrings
For thousands of years chrysocolla has been known throughout the world as a stone of calming reconciliation and reassurance. In ancient Egypt, it was called the “wise stone” because it shielded and encouraged the mind during negotiations. Those who wore it generally came up with clever compromises and resolutions. This stone also has the ability to help people who are violent to become more sensitive and tolerant which is why, as an ambassador, Cleopatra wore chrysocolla jewelry everywhere she went.
The rich, vibrant blue and green colors of chrysocolla are reminiscent of looking down upon the earth’s surface from space. Their imperfect shape represents our imperfect world.
Earrings are hand formed with 20 gauge sterling silver wire. Each chrysocolla gemstone sits atop oxidized torch drawn balled ends. Earrings hang 1 1/8″ from the top of the hand formed wire to the bottom of the balled ends.
Copper Petal Earrings
Olive green petals adorn this multi-faceted, multi-colored Czech glass bead. The Czech glass bead is so very intriguing with layers of copper, green and the palest of blue.
Antiqued copper earwires with hand wrapped antiqued copper wire on which the petals and bead swing.
Length approx. 1 3/4″
A Charming Necklace
A sea of freshwater pearls, Czech glass lapis, denim glass pearls and silver drops surround this handcrafted sterling silver floral charm. A single flower represents a peaceful lifestyle! Charm measures 1/4″ wide by 3/4″ tall. The sterling silver clasp holds it all together.
Necklace measures 17 1/2″
Hand stamped sterling silver floral pendant with burgundy cultured fresh water pearls necklace
Hand stamped (by me!) sterling silver floral pendant with burgundy cultured fresh water pearls. Pendant, which measures 1″, has been organically oxidized and then polished to emphasize the stamped flowers. Burgundy faceted fancy jasper gemstones add dimension. A charming dangle sits atop the pendant. Sterling silver artisan created bumpy clasp holds it all together.
Necklace measures 17″.
