Announcement   HANDMADE GENUINE GEMSTONE JEWELRY + HANDSPUN YARN - TAKE A LOOK!
I love precious metals, genuine gemstones and luxury fibers. Good buys, too! Genuine gemstones / sterling / gold filled and HANDMADE.

14K Gold Filled or Sterling Silver paired with genuine gemstones are high quality pieces to be enjoyed for years and are MUCH different from plated materials with glass or plastic stones.
Thank you for your positive feedback. I want to build a loyal following and have many return customers.
I love CUSTOM ORDERS. I love making ROSARIES! I made an Apatite rosary and a Smoky Quartz one for my niece and her groom; they were spectacular!
Take a peek and have fun..... BARB

Note: gold has appreciated 245% in the last 5 years; silver has also gone WAY up. Good if you've invested in gold; not good if you need to BUY it to make jewelry. I try to hold the line, but it's getting harder! "Silver filled" wire is now available and is a wonderful alternative to solid silver and allows the price to drop a bit.
Also note: "gold filled" has 100 times MORE gold than "gold plated". In 14K GF, the gold is bonded permanently to the alloy or metal used (brass, copper) and it will not scratch off or fade. "Vermeil" is gold plating over a silver core and is very popular. Gold plated over brass is the least expensive and will not wear nearly as well as the other options. "Pewter" is tin alloyed with copper and a few other things and is also very pretty, altho not used much in jewelry applications. I like to use 14K GF, vermeil, sterling silver, and silver filled.
NOTE: shipping is generally 1-3 business days. Will ship as soon as I'm able.

My daughter and I love fashioning amazing jewelry using mainly genuine semiprecious gemstones - why pay $35 for something made of plastic and glass? We adore gemstones, especially the exotic stones like the garnets (tsavorite, spessartite, hessonite, etc.), Russian chrome diopside, andalusite.....amazing! At Blue Kiwi, you get what you pay for!
