I've been beading and designing jewelry for over 20 years and for me, a sermi-precious stone is just as beautiful as a humble wooden bead. . .guess you could say that I've never met a bead I didn't like.
Alas, these are the only pictures I have to share at the moment, and please forgive the blurr. I'll be adding more in the near future.
Three necklaces in a palette of soft pink, grey and champagne, featuring freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, vintage findings, and vintage rhinestone buttons are layered on display.

This is a triple strand wire-wrapped necklace featuring vintage rhinestone buttons as connectors. I love working with sterling silver wire and the patina you get over time.
More layers. The1920's rhinestone pin makes a bold statement. Another necklace features Rosary parts and a Miraculous Medal that belonged to my mother.
