When you need that special touch, something uniquely yours, here are some
ideas to consider. Just let
me know how I can create something especially for you.
Having done some calligraphy in the past, I love coming up with special letter forms. These are some monogram pendants I have
created in various styles to suit the wearer. Prices range from
$45 to $60 and sizes are around 2 to 3 inches.
1) BPG, P for the maiden name being smaller 2) ER, leaving out
a middle initial to improve the design
3) DBR, letters "stacked up"
4) SP in wearer's signature style.

Pink Ribbon Necklace
In tribute to a friend of mine who did not survive her battle with breast cancer, I
will make a donation to breast cancer research when this necklace
sells. Pink rhodenite ovals and 6mm rounds pair with pink ribbon
lamp work beads and silver accents in this special necklace.
Hand-knotted on silk. About 26 inches long.
Matching earrings included.
Priced at $75. Earrings available separately for $30.
"Melted metal"© pins
I use my fused sterling silver pieces to make stick pins,
like these two. Each one is unique, depending on how the silver flows
in the heat of the fire. Left, "flower", about 1 inch, set with
cabochon garnet, $45. Right, "sea horse", about 2 inches, set with
peach moonstone, $50. The pin stem is about 3 inches long.
The clutch for the end of the pin is a silver color base metal.
These pins are hand-forged in either sterling silver or copper, with very
pins that will easily go through most materials. These are
historical styles that were popular because of their
utility and beauty. The fibula style on the left dates from
ancient Greece and can be accented
with beads of your choice. The penannular style on the right was
popular for over 1000 years throughout Europe. Pins in sterling are $35-$50, and in
copper $25-$35, depending on the size and expected use (heavier
garments need heavier pins).
