Happy Holidays!!!

"Winter Forest", sterling silver and montana agate.
I just finished this pendant.  I am always drawn to unusual stones, and this one really asked for a unique design.  The stone is montana agate.  It is a high arched cabochon and is almost translucent.  To me this piece looks like a pine forest on a snowy day.
Thanks to all my friends and customers for a wonderful year.  Here's wishing you peace and joy during this holiday season and a happy, healthy 2013!

A Wedding

A very sweet customer of mine, Sarah, recently got married.  She asked me to make her jewelry for her, and I was honored to do so.  Sarah loves nature-oriented themes. For her wedding she had a beautiful pale blue/ gray dress with embroidered vines all over it.  To go with it she commissioned this necklace of cast silver twigs and blue topaz.

Sarah's photography was done by Hannah Penny, who I think did a wonderful job.  The photographs capture how beautiful Sarah is and the dimesional quality of the jewelry very well.  Thank you Sarah for sharing these gorgeous photographs with me!
