This has been a slow start to the week after a hectic weekend full of birthday celebrations for the little guy who turned 2. I am still in need of some recovery sleep!! While the birthday pictures are still streaming in, here is a recently completed custom order. More pretty pieces heading this way soon! :)

A fetching collar necklace with an amazing repurposed vintage Haskell-sque component. There is a large round mother of pearl disc with a lovely bunch of topaz blooms in varying petal arrangements, floral faux pearl accents and enamel feathery leaves in a neutral shade of camel. A lone aged brass swallow has made this gorgeous nest its own and hidden a beautiful large olive topaz briolette in it. The chain is a vintage-repro antiqued brassy gold crimped link chain that goes with this secret garden scene. Beautiful and romantic, this is a visually stunning 16.5" piece.
A classic black and gold ensemble with a vintage Art Noveau pendant. This lovely pendant has a black lucite cabochon with gold flakes set in a crown-like gilded frame surrounded by hearts and leaves. There are panels of rose gold plating on both sides of the cabochon which gives the pendant a subtle 2-toned appearance. The 17" long chain is made up of 2 pretty twig branch connectors, black spinel rondelles and champagne gold pearls interspersed on a petite bar link chain.
An elegant necklace composed of 7 beautiful smooth moonstone briolettes and keishi petal pearl clusters suspended on a gold-filled bar link chain with trails of glistening round silvery pearls. At the heart of this Sonata is a gorgeous crystal starburst set on a snowflake filigree base. Necklace measures approx. 18" long with 14k gold filled components.

The recent inclement weather has meant less than stellar product pictures but I managed to sneak this pair in for a quick photoshoot in yesterday's brief patch of sunshine :) Also in the festive mood is Camellia Rouge with pretty cherry quartz roses and its cascading trail of gems including peridot, apatite, phrenite, rhodolite garnet, hessonite, rhodochrosite and pink amethyst. Ends with gorgeous deep red garnet marquise briolettes. The pan cut really shines! Earrings measure just under 3.5cm from 14k gold filled hooks. YUM.
