About this design:

I fell in love with the Thai faceted silver beads...and of course my birthstone being amethyst, I thought they would compliment each other perfectly. I put three shades of purple Swarovski's...love those Swarovski's!!!! This is by far my favorite set, simple yet stunning. This entire set is solid sterling silver, Swarovski's and Thai silver.

Components:

Sterling silver ball chain and connector, sterling silver headpins, sterling silver split rings, sterling silver earwires, Thai silver faceted beads and Swarovski's.

    Thanks ladies! I would love to keep this, but I would also love to sell it. Alot of my customers are used to buying from magazines, I won’t mention any but I think we all know them. They’ve started bringing me the magazines asking if I can make something similar to a style in the magazine. Of course I don’t want to turn any customer away. I’ve found in these magazines that solid sterling silver earrings with Swarovski’s and Thai silver are $80-$90 alone. When I can sell the necklace with the earrings for $85.00, why would you want to buy from those magazines. It just amazes me at how much they markup their products….sad.

    Do any of you have customers that request you to do a style from a picture or magazine?

    Also, any tips on how to get vibrant colors in the picture when taking a picture of sterling silver and crystals? Black background seems to suck all the color out of the crystals, white doesn’t make it sparkle…..I’m looking for any help I can get.

    Thanks wonderful ladies!!!!
