Mystery Genre

About this design:

Every year I design jewelry for Bridgerland Literacy's fundraiser and Scrabble Tournament. It has become an expectation that the jewelry will have a literary theme. Last year the inspiration came from the combined titles of four mysteries: Shell Game, Amethyst Dreams, Sapphire Sea and Turquoise Girl. The initial designing was done using a Fresh Pick (of the same name).


Natural amethyst chunks, abalone squares, sapphire rounds and turquoise heishes, sterling beads and clasp.
