kyanite necklace

I bought this kyanite ‘slice’ because it looks so beautiful, I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do with it! I decided to set it in silver but it was a truly awkward shape so i added some keshi pearls to the setting. It looked pretty good so I then had to decide what next to do. I thought a double strand of silver chain,keshi pearl,apatite and faceted black onyx would look good but it needed something else?  12 strands of silver chain,apatite,keshi pearl,faceted black onyx and really gorgeous black opals, all handing from the pendant of the necklace, did I mention that it became a necklace?

I recently have been getting more and more into semi-precious stones. While browsing a little shop downtown Spokane, I cam across a stone I had never used before, Kyanite. It is instantly my new favorite. It is iridescent like labradorite, but in a vibrant pale blue color. I have been searching the web for wholesale Kyanite ever since! I used long teardrops to make these beautiful earrings. A simple wire-wrap job and sterling silver earring wires complete the look. Sometimes when you have a piece of stone so pretty, simplicity is best!Shimmering Slate Earrings

Brass and blues necklace

Brass,topaz,aquamarine,apatite and kyanite necklace

This handcut brass necklace has apatite, topaz , aquamarine and kyanite beads, lots of lovely shades of blue. It also  has a gold plated chain and gold plated beads. It is from a collection I did a few years ago, I didn’t name them then but do now, it makes life easier when do price list, pics and loading onto my website. It  is also fun to thinking  up names for each collection although it can be quite hard, it has to sound right and not to silly.
