For some reason I have long had this aversion to carrying variations of the same design in my shop. It somehow felt indecisive as a designer to make available essentially the same design only with different gemstones, when I should be offering one and only version of a design, painstakingly refined to perfection! Haha… Well, I decided to get off the rather maniacal high horse and try offering design series. After all, it would be good to give customers some choices as to their preferred gemstones and color schemes. I have conjured up a couple of “lines” here.
Glowing gemstone rounds are nestled under Thai silver woven beads. Offered with chrysoprase and rhodochrosite.
Small clusters of colorful gemstones dangle under sterling silver hoops. I love the free-form shapes of the silver hoops; some are close to triangles. These are offered with Peruvian blue opal, grossular garnet, hessonite garnet and apatite.
Petite faceted gemstone rounds dangle under Thai silver circle charms. These are like small chandelier earrings. Offered in amazonite, amethyst and garnet.
No “series” for this one. :-) Peruvian opal nugget drop earrings. These free-form nugget shape goes well with the handmade elongated earwires. I’d love to make a few similar pairs if I can get other similarly shaped stones.
