New shop item: aquamarine clusters

This new item is an aquamarine cluster necklace called "Nikki", named after my very cool cousin whose birthstone is aquamarine. The stones are really pretty - translucent and pearly, in varying shades of white, brown, blue, and light green, carefully hand-wrapped in sterling silver. The cluster is approximately 2" long. As you can probably tell, the cluster design is quickly becoming my favorite.

Nikki is up at the shop now so check her out!


I've had several people ask about items that have already been sold, so I think this is a good time to put an announcement up here and at the shop about custom orders. If you guys see stuff that you like that are already in the 'Sold' section of the shop, just send me an email or a "conversation" on Etsy about it. If I have the supplies, I will gladly make another one for you. And since everything is handcrafted, no two necklace will be exactly alike, but they will be similar in style and color so you can still claim your individual piece as unique! Some of the beads were found in bead shows so those won't be repeatable, but some will be, so just let me know and I will check if I can repeat the design.

I've had requests for another order of Abigail and Celia, two styles that seem to be very popular, so yay! I've also had a request for a style similar to Sophie, except a silver chain in place of the blue ribbon. I also will be posting some more earrings just as soon as I fix a couple of pictures that didn't come out right.

I'm flattered! I'm a "very cool cousin"? I think some may beg to differ!

Hi Hazel! It's Ryan & Mariel's cousin from Canada Kate. I was wondering if you do any pieces with amber. I love your bracelet designs with the toggles and wondering what you could come up with. I'm especially fond of green amber! ... Just something to think about!

M2A, definitely one of THE coolest ;)

Hi Kate!! Thanks so much for stopping by. I haven't worked with amber yet (I don't think I've run across this stone at my buying field trips) but I will definitely be on the lookout for them, especially green amber (that sounds gorgeous actually - I don't think I've ever seen green amber before). Are you more interested in bracelets rather than necklaces?

I'll see what I can come up with for you!

I was thinking the same thing, you should venture into bracelets! I love necklaces, but I adore bracelets!

Y'all stay away from the all-chain Sophie. That bling is mine! Mwahahahaha!

HMM, bracelets on the way!! :)

K, the all-chain Sophie has your name on it!
