Three stranded mixed bead necklace for silent auction

I was invited again this year to submit a jewelry item for the South Carolina Library Association annual conference scholarship for diversity fundraiser. I decided to use a mix of beads and various colors. They range from lampwork beads to Stone to glass and copper and seed beads. The clasp is handmade copper. I hope it sells for a lot of money so that it can go towards the scholarship funds.


Jasper necklace

Made this jasper necklace for my dental hygienist and she really liked it. I think the large stones are river jasper and some of the smaller beads are moss agate and copper. Also made these earrings with copper hoops for my other dental hygienist and she liked them too 🙂



Tiger Iron Jasper and Copper Pendant

This pendant has beautiful browns and rust colors striped throughout the jasper and catches the light in different ways giving off different shades of colors. It is wrapped with copper and comes on an adjustable cord/ribbon necklace. The pendant measures close to 3 inches.

I have been working on some new pendants!  Visit my online store at 🙂


Copper Earrings

My first set of earrings that I made the ear wires for. I used 20 gauge copper wire and various beads. And yes, I used old library catalog cards to display them.
