    A note from Patricia~
     
    After raising a family, I discovered a secret passion, an inborn talent for creating unique and elegant pieces of jewelry.

    It all started with a trip to the neighborhood boutique, which much to dismay, had been replaced by an intriquing bead store called 'String Bead'. The minute I walked into the store, I was instantly addicted. That is where I learned fine jewelry making techniques.

    "I want to learn it all, and I will!"

    Thank you for stopping by...and remember to "Bloom where you are planted"

    I spent the evening window shopping on the net.  This is something I have not been able to do in a long time.  As I was relaxing and enjoying the many talents of so many creative artisans, I stumbled upon the shop of one of our long time members of Unique Women in Business (UWIB).  I am in awe of the talent, imagination, and attention to detailI have posted just a few of the many gorgeous creations.  Hmmm....Great Holiday ideas!

    Angel Aura Crystal Pendant Rainbow Handcrafted Sterling Silver Opal Aura Cluster OOAKAngel Aura Crystal Pendant Rainbow Handcrafted Sterling Silver Opal Aura Cluster OOAK
    This pendant is a fabulous cluster of petite crystals! Called Angel Aura, this OOAK (one of a kind) natural crystal formation has been permanently coated with fumed platinum/silver which gives it these amazing colors. It shimmers in an irridescent blue and green! It is wrapped securely with sterling silver wire. Approximately 1-1/4 inch long and 1-1/4 inch wide.  PENDANT ONLY is included in this listing. Sterling silver chains are available in separate listings. The chain shown in the photo is a dainty 20-inch cable chain.  This necklace will come in a handstamped kraft gift box--ready to give as a gift or keep for yourself. When not being worn, please store this heirloom piece in its box to protect the wire from getting entangled with other jewelry, etc.

    You may purchase a sterling silver chain necklace available in other listings.

    *Angel Aura Quartz starts with a natural crystal (in this case a crystal point). Ultra-thin layers of different metal oxides (platinum and silver) condense on the surface of the crystal creating a stunning permanent pastel rainbow coating.

    NOTE: this crystal is not polished; it's shape is natural

    Metaphysically, Angel Aura Quartz has the attributes of crystal, but amplified and compounded by the presence of the various metals in the coating, which may have healing attributes for all chakras. This pendant holds amazing energy and is excellent for meditation.

    Breast Cancer Awareness Elegant Pink Ribbon Silver Earrings

    October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. In honor of all those who have been touched by this disease, I have created these elegant earrings. A silver ribbon of fine silver (nearly pure .999 silver) with a pink Swarovski crystal marking each end swing freely from handcrafted sterling silver earwires. These limited edition earrings are hand forged and hammered and the dangles hange a mere 7/8 inches. Very light weight and swing freely, with a pink crystal flash!

    "With each pair of earrings sold, a donation of 20% of the item price will be made to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to support the cure for breast cancer. In honor of Sherry, my sweet sister-in-law, who was gone in 6 months."~Judy


    A note from Judy:

    There is something very satisfying about taking a straight piece of wire and turning it into a beautiful piece of art. Combined with amber
    simbircite, magenta purple eudialyte, bronze-flash astrophyllite, blue-green apatite, and other rare semi-precious stones makes it all
    the more fascinating.


    We think of the world as having limitless resources, but these stones are found in only limited places, often only in a single mine. More
    rare than diamonds, these are the truly precious stones! Hand wrapped in precious metals with artisan care and craftsmanship, this is handcrafted jewelry!
