Necklaces Galore!

I admit that there have been times where I find myself in a state of “jewelry making burnout”, where I’m stumped on what to make, or I just don’t feel like it, so I’ve focused on other things.

But lately, I’ve been having one of my periods where I am super creative; when ideas are frequently coming to mind and I just let the inspiration flow through me.  These times I enjoy the most and some of my best work comes from it.

Are you ready to see it?  I’m so excited to share my latest work with you and I hope you’ll find it to be beautiful and appealing.  Please do feel free to comment…I’d love to hear from you!

Today I’m showing my newest necklaces, which are now available at Swanheart Jewelry on Etsy  (click on any image below to be taken to the item’s listing in my Etsy shop…lots more photos to see):

Grand Dame Crystal Statement Necklace

The term “Grand Dame” means “a woman of influential position within a particular sphere.”  You’ll feel nothing but Grand wearing my Grand Dame Crystal Statement Necklace. Shiny and beautiful crystal clear and AB beads combined with Jet black crystal rondelle beads and deep blue teal glass pearls make a stunning combination. Many of the beads have gold tone filigree bead caps to add some extra glamour to the necklace. I handcrafted each of the beautiful dangles you see here using gold plated brass head pins and I attached them to a gold plated brass oval link chain using sturdy 18 gauge gold plated brass jump rings. I completed the necklace with a large spring ring clasp. You’re sure to turn heads when you walk into the room wearing this one-of-a-kind original.
