An artisan jewelry journey in color, texture and fun. Beaded jewelry with handcrafted sterling silver is my focus and joy.

I am so loving this necklace, I had to share. Cherries are so fun and trendy now, but most of what is out there is plastic or base metal. Not my cup-o-tea. So I did some up in quartz and sterling. Now there's a bowl of cherries!

I call this piece my Gaia Necklace, because the ryolite stones are so primordial looking. Wonderful swirls of green and tawny tan. I set the cabochon on a disc of sterling, swirled wire around it to form the bail, and decorated with fun little pops of sterling granules. Rich and earthy, don't you think?
