CJC031 Pink Flower Handknotted Seed Bead Crystal Necklace... $51.00 Sixties In Pink

One of kind... Finger Knotted Sixties Floral Seed Bead Crystal Necklace. So why do I say Sixties? Because the piece that is the focal point is an earring from the 1960s. It has a gold colored filigree base that allows itself to be connect via rings. Apparently, the match to this earring disappeared many years ago and so this pretty piece was tucked away in a drawer. Variegated (dark in parts, light pink in others) pink cord finger knotted with square AB finished glass beads, AB crystals, pink faceted glass and gold and pearl seed beads. Measures 22" long. The ends of it are heavily glued and one end is fastened to a chain with a lobster clasp and the other a huge O ring. I can't find the caps to cover these huge knots. The earring is about 1-1/2" in diameter. Faux pearl finished leaves with little pearl flowers that have an AB crystal in the center of each. There is a pink Lucite cab at the base of the filigree and pearls. A really eye catching combination.

CJC030 Finger Knotted Vintage Porcelain Crystal Necklace...$82 An Old Song For You

One of kind... Finger Knotted Vintage Porcelain Crystal Necklace. The Porcelain Transferware cab has a period couple sitting outside while he plays his song on the flute, she fans herself. This old Porcelain piece is stamped with a number but it is covered with a leather backing for a base for the crystal beading. It was purchased at auction and at once it inspired the design of silverpolished and gold crystal beading with grey cord. Seed beads, AB polished grey crystals with cord are finger knotted in a free flowing pattern. This is not a followed from a book pattern... the knotting just flowed as I went along. Measures approx. 19.5 inches. An extremely attractive piece that links the past with the present in a very sparkling fashion.

Lions Roar Lion's Roar

Created with fine silver this Royal Lion has clear Cubic Zirconia eyes and a man made Ruby in it's mouth. This was designed using a mold from an original antique piece, with the bale being hand designed. I matched this Lion up with fiery red colored glass chips, freshwater dyed pearls, bali daisy spacers and black matte finished glass seed beads. The clasp is an S type made of fine silver. This is my favorite piece to date - I was inspired by the signs Leo and Aries, both fire signs and my father, who possessed the baby like qualities of Aries and the roar of Leo. Designed in choker style - so the Lion would be close to the throat area - this piece measures 16" long. Pierced sterling silver lever back earrings using the same design as the choker and they measures 1-3/4" long. You'll surely turn heads with this set!
