Earring Fun!

I truly enjoy making a variety of earring designs.  Some are simple.  Some are complex.  Some are elegant.  Some are casual.  But no matter what design or style...they all receive the utmost attention to spectacular workmanship.  Here are two NEW pair from DLPom Handcrafted Expressions.  The first pair are just sterling silver.  The second pair, with garnet nuggets, are too cute!

Spring Green Jewelry in Prehnite, Prasiolite, & Peridot

The three "P's" of spring green jewelry:  Prehnite, Prasiolite (also known as green amethyst), and Peridot!  Prehnite, with its opaque, green hue is a neutral stone with casual appeal.  Prasiolite has brilliant clarity for an elegant touch.  Peridot, the darkest green of the three stones, can swing either way depending on the cut of the stone and design of the jewelry.

Here are the spring green jewelry examples from my shop:  The first is a sterling silver washer necklace with a prehnite briolette, hand wire-wrapped in 14 kt gold fill wire. 

The second is an elegant pair of rectangular, prasiolite earrings in sterling silver. 

Finally, a cute little padlock pendant with a peridot cabochon. 

I'm ready for spring!  Happy shopping for spring green jewelry!
