I've always absolutely loved how jewelry can transform a look, from dressy to stylish to edgy, and I have made it for years to fit my own mood. Several years ago while living in NYC, I starting making pendent necklaces by wire wrapping beautiful natural stones and hanging them from delicate chain. Right away many of my friends asked for me to make them one, and I set out to find stones that I thought they'd love. Since then I've made more than I can count.

I've always absolutely loved how jewelry can transform a look, from dressy to stylish to edgy, and I have made it for years to fit my own mood. Several years ago while living in NYC, I starting making pendent necklaces by wire wrapping beautiful natural stones and hanging them from delicate chain. Right away many of my friends asked for me to make them one, and I set out to find stones that I thought they'd love. Since then I've made more than I can count.

I love to work with a variety of semi precious and precious gemstones, and I spend hours upon hours searching for the perfect, one of a kind gems for my designs. I often look for unique cuts and faceting, bold colors, sparkling crystals, and shimmer in my stones, working with gems such as druzy agate crystal, blue lapis, jasper, jade, labradorite, rough cut citrine, natural green turquoise, and amethyst crystal rock. I hang these wire wrapped or bezel set stones from either delicate or slightly heavier gold and silver chain for different looks - from dainty and girly to more funky.

Most of the stone pendents I use are completely one of a kind (in rare cases I find a few of a particular stone) - this means your necklace will be UNIQUELY BEAUTIFUL!

All of my jewelry pieces are completely hand wrapped, soldered, sawed, filed, polished, oxidized, and crafted by me. I use quality sterling silver and 14k gold filled (or occasionally 14k gold and plated metal) chain and wire in my jewelry. My sterling silver wire is Argentium sterling, which is 92.5% silver alloyed with copper and germanium. The germanium gives it improved tarnish resistance, so it doesn't have to be polished as often as regular sterling silver. The gold plated and antique finish nickel plated chain I use comes from a supplier in NYC who I've used since 2007, and their plated chains hold up beautifully to regular wear (unlike some plating that wears off in a matter of months).

CLEANING NOTE for brass jewelry: To bring back the shine after oxidization due to frequent contact with air and skin, just brush it with an old toothbrush with a combo of fine table salt and lemon juice/white vinegar. And to seal it just rub it with a rag with some olive oil, easy!

For other materials (14k gold fill, plated gold, sterling silver etc), a great and easy way to get them sparkling like new is to soak them for a few minutes in warm water with a denture cleaning tablet (a little secret from me to you ;).
