In the spirit of New Year's celebrations, I listed my Champagne Collection on Etsy this morning. Made with gold filled wire with gold filled, vermeil, and brass beads in addition to citrine, several varieties and colors of freshwater pearls, and Swarovski crystal, this collection has been quite popular.
It all started when a high school senior approached me a couple of years ago to put together a necklace for her prom dress. The color was a greenish/goldish/creamish color that proved difficult to match at the mall. Fortuately, I love a design challenge, and came up with a collection of beads that blends well with all sorts of colors.
If you wear cream and khaki in the winter (doesn't most everyone?) and are looking for a way to add some sparkle, this is it.
Necklace is 48 inches (1.3 meters) and can be wound twice or three times for variety ($125).
Cuff is about 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) wide, and can be flexed to fit your wrist ($89).
Earrings hang 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) from your ear, and are on French wires, but could be put on ball/posts ($24). Sold separately, the set would be $238, but I'll give a special *blog pricing* at $225 (plus shipping of $5.00 in US - other places to be determined).
Happy New Year!
