"The Life Tree"

I have loved Rhyolite since the beginning. One of my favorite natural green/brown stones. I thought it was a perfect match to this amazing Tree pendant from Spirited Earth. The colours seem a little off on the computer, they are truer to each other in person. Mix all this with Vintaj Brass and you have an amazingly earthy necklace with character and texture.
I used a small filigree piece to create a bail. It adds a touch of elegance and makes it different from my usual jumpring.

I hope this necklace goes to a good home and makes someone very happy :)
I also made this fun colourful piece to go with a variety of outfits. A plain white dress shirt and jeans, a nice church dress, a fun outfit for a playdate...

I used a mix of stones and glass all wrapped in brass wire.
I love the soft mix of pinks, greens and purples. The Czech glass, recycled glass and semi-precious stones are fun. I have these on my Facebook page right now, feel free to have a look, I plan on listing them on my website soon...

Have a wonderful week!

These are both beautiful. I love the filligree bail, and LOVE the colors on the long one. I want it so badly! I would even put on real clothes (I'm still in my pj's) if I had such a wonderful necklace to wear! Thanks for sharing your process on your blog and on fb.

Love them both. The filigree bail is a great idea. I love the soft colors of the second necklace. It is very versatile.

I really love the bail! That's what makes things one of a kind!
