Forest Shadows

I loved these teardrops when I spied them looking for Easter eggs(I know I've had them way too long). I really wanted to show off the swirls...

Enchantment

I made this sometime ago, but never made earrings to match, until now. You probably can't see the color of the flower in the middle of the pendant,...

Scarlet Tears

I said it has been the year of the teardrops for me, so here's another set. Every time I want to wear red or a piece of red jewelry I can't find...

Components: Blue Sky jasper & brown snowflake jasper, copper chain & clasp. The earrings have 4mm blue zircon Swarovski bicones.


Midnight Dreams

Another teardrop! I think it's black stone, but I've never seen a gemstone that has "worm holes" in it. I thought it was unique so I used it. It's...

Aqua Ombre

More teardrops! When I bought these I had no project in mind. I really had to use my noggin! I like the result. I wanted to use a crystal teardrop,...

Aquamarine Tears

This caused me much frustration. I wanted to use a bail, but not a jumpring to attach it. I tried "Macgyvering" one with no luck. Richard Dean...

Adrian!

I could not think of a perfect name. I looked up green in every language. Then I tried to think of music with rocky in the lyrics. Duh! The movie...
