NEW! Gemstone and Silver Charm Pendants

My newest project!  I had hours of fun making these sterling silver hand wrapped semi precious gemstone and Thai silver charm pendants.  They are sparkly and petite and are perfectly glamorous on their own or for layering with other necklaces when added to a sterling silver chain.  I hope you like them!

LARGE DRILL HOLE FRESHWATER PEARLS BACK IN STOCK!

These are lovely – LARGE DRILL HOLE 11mm freshwater potato pearls. Great for designs with thicker cord/leather (up to about 2mm). I only managed to get 9 strands from the factory this time! Trying to get more for the new year. Grab them while you can :)
