Nutty Chalcedon necklace.

I have just made this piece for a very special friend for her birthday. The lovely sand colour stone really depicts the shifting sands of Namibia where it is from. The apple green gives is a lovely contrast.

Stromatolite stone pendant necklace.

A lovely Autumn colour patterned Stromatolite stone made into a pendant necklace with bead embroidery. The fire polish bead edging gives it a bit of sparkle. The leather cord works well with the strong colours and feel of the piece.

Turtle Sea Collar

I was very fortunate to be a winner in the August Facet Design Challenge run by B&B Magazine with this piece. The title for the challenge was A Day At The Sea.
I love working with these colours as can be seen by a previous collar called The Reef. The freeform bead embroidery gives one scope to be creative and use interesting components. The turtle charm comes from Greece. It is made of copper with a green patina. I think he is very happy in his new home in the waves!
The background painting is by my talented husband Chris.

White Tiger Pendant Necklace.

Another beautiful glass cabochon made by Chris ( my husband ) The tiger combined with black beads and Swarovski crystal rhinestones makes a very strong statement although fairly simple at the same time. The dark green seed beads compliment the black and the tiger's eye.

Elephant Pendant Necklace.

Being a great lover of wildlife I couldn't resist this lovely glass pendant made by Chris. Elephants are my most favourite of all the beautiful animals on the planet. Having been brought up in Africa I was very fortunate to have spent many hours watching them in the wild in game reserves. It's very sad we now have to spend so much money and effort on saving them from poachers and hunters. They are such magnificent animals we should have nothing but respect for them and preserve them for future generations.
