Stop what you're doing and take a moment to simply revel in the beauty of this strand of Australian chrysoprase. Wow! I think I'm in love. This necklace is the perfect shade of green with brown, black and light grey natural inclusions. I've knotted this beauty on green silk to further compliment the natural colour of the stone, and finished it with a sterling silver spring clasp.
This necklace can be worn on its own with the clasp to the back of the neck or worn with a pendant or cluster of charms with the clasp to the front. The combinations are endless.
Ahh bliss...look at this lush green chrysoprase. Truly there is really nothing the colour green does not compliment. I've knotted these lovely chrysoprase rondelles onto brown silk and added gold accents to bring out the natural inclusions of the stone. This necklace is perfect worn on it's own, but even better layered with other pieces. All metal detailing is in 14k gold fill.
Sometimes one strand just isn't enough! The Frequency necklace showcases vibrant gemstone chips on precious metal chains. It's one necklace but it looks like you're wearing two. I particularly like this cut of stone because it adds a touch of edginess to any design. For this necklace I paired green chrysoprase with oxidised sterling silver chain. This necklace is particularly long. Wear it with a flowing kaftan or an unbuttoned collared shirt layered with other pieces.
The Oracle earrings are one of the STONE AGE collection earring designs. This collection is intended to share my passion for stones and highlights strong focals in the form of earring drops and pendants. The Oracle earrings showcase stunning cuts of various semiprecious stones in different shapes with complimentary gem clusters to add a touch of whimsy. This pair features a pair of bright green chrysoprase focals with clusters of facetted smokey quartz rondelles. The colour is vibrant and eye catching. All metal detailing is in 14k gold fill.
Please note that all jewellery in the STONE AGE collection are one of a kind. The individual stone markings on each piece cannot be replicated due to the natural materials used.
Striking. That is the first word which comes to mind when I look at the For Keeps necklaces. I wanted to create an interesting and complex pendant featuring, of course, pops of vibrant colour with different semiprecious stones. This particular necklace showcases green chrysoprase nuggets wrapped along a hand forged sterling silver frame with 14k gold fill wire and finished with a long delicate sterling silver chain.
Length of necklace (not including pendant drop) 30 inches
Pendant drop 70mm
