Thank you all so much for visiting me at the Palm Beach Rec. Center, St Thomas More & St. Elizabeth Ann Seton craft shows.

I have several items already on my Etsy site and will be posting more. If you remember seeing something that is not posted please contact me to see if it is still available or I can design a new piece just for you. I will be happy to email you pictures.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

"The Universe"

This new design is just fun to wear. I've coiled the Argentium wire and added a
beautiful Green Opal bead to the center. I'm using all different color
beads that are either 8mm or 10mm. It comes to you ready to wear with a
16" or 18" black leather choker.
If you like a certain color let me know and you can have your own
"Original Design by Lc"
to compliment your outfit.
The size of this pendant is approximately 2" inc. bail x 1 3/4".
The price is $25
Don't forget each one is handmade and slightly different. I do have some irregular
shapes of beads that fit into the opening, or just have it without the bead.
Want it smaller... no problem.
You be the designer.

Swirly-Curly


Well a name came to me and it's Swirly-Curly. Same design as the Silver with Blue Onyx except I've tweeked it a bit.


The Amethyst beads look beautiful with the silver and since I like to use Argentium Sterling Silver there is less tarnish to deal with. The set will have a 16" chain to go with it and will be priced at $45 for the set. I have Red Tiger Eye in the works along with Green Jade. The earrings are light weight and look very stylish with the pendant.

Silver with Blue Onyx




I can't even come up with a fun name for this design so if you think of one for me let me know. This pendant is much more shiney than I can show you.





I'll be making a similiar design to this one with different beads wrapped on the pendant. Earrings will also be available. They will not be listed on Etsy so you'll just have to email me to get your very own. I am making these exclusively for my craft shows and a shop where some of my pieces are featured. This piece is all Argentium Sterling Silver with a 6mm Blue Onyx bead and approximately 2" high X 1 1/4" wide. I am waiting for a shipment of silver chain to arrive and these will be available with a 16" chain @ $45 I'll post an updated picture then.





If you would like to reserve a piece with a particular color bead let me know. I have many to choose from. I'll make it and send you a picture. You will still be able to make a purchase with PayPal.

Swirl & Curl Tiger Eye




I'll make it easier...like a matched set. Fun and easy to wear. This new set comes with a 16" Greek leather choker and gift boxed at $45 (#3692EPFFTE). Measures approximately 2 1/8 x 1" for pendant and 1 1/2 x 1/2" for earrings, very top of shepard hook to bottom. An of course I've used Argentium Sterling Silver to make caring for these pieces easier and Brown Tiger Eye beads (8mm & 4mm).


Similiar design is available in Ocean Jasper. Don't forget each is slightly different so you have an original custom set.


Stay tuned for more colors....I'm headed to 2 bead shows in the next couple weeks to see if I can find some exciting new colors and shapes. If you need a certain color let me know, I'll either have it or can get it.

NEW ** Free Form Design **



Both designs feature an Ocean Jasper bead & are


approximately 2 1/4" x 1"








Had a new pendant idea and here it is Open Curl and Ocean Jasper. These and others will be available on Etsy. Each is hand shaped, hammered and polished so you really get and "Original Design by Lc". Since I use Argentium Sterling Silver it'll only need a touch-up now and then.

Bil & Lilly

I know you are all looking for some special jewelry but from time to time I just have to share the adventures of my dog "Bil". Lilly my granddaughter, 3 1/2 years old was here visiting and asked if "Bil" could go swimming in the pool with her. "Bil" is 9 months old and a chocolate Spanish Water Dog. Of course "Bil" can swim and loves chilling out on the top step. We bought him a couple water friendly toys so he could retrieve them when they are tossed into the pool...so Lilly is in the pool along with Daddy and I toss out the toy that happens to have a little rope attached to it. I don't know who had more fun!!

Fun Designs

Shown with 6mm Ocean Jasper, many other gemstones are available.

Freeform Heart shown here with a Swarovski crystal.

Freeform Argentium Coil Pendants come with a 16" Greek Leather Choker @ $20. Earrings are available @ $15. These are always available for purchase and shipment, contact me to Reserve yours on Etsy.

One of my favorite materials to work with is Argentium Sterling Silver...because it has the added bonus of being "Tarnish Resistant" I love it! I use it for wire wrapping, and freeform earrings and pendants. Hammer it, bend it, swirl & curl and it looks great. Touch it up with a silver polishing cloth and you are good to go!!

Each one I make is done by hand so no two are alike and the added challenge is to make the earrings a mirror image. Not an easy task...but they are as closely matched as possible.

These are a couple styles and some pendants come with a Black Greek leather 16" choker. Wear them everyday for a casual look or use your own silver chain or neck ring to dress it up.
