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.
