New Necklaces with Stones from Arizona!

I apologize for the weird colors in some of these pictures - I have tried to edit this post and delete these pictures but they won't delete!(???) So I will just ignore them

Of course, the way I uploaded theses four necklaces the one necklace that didn't come out of Quartzsite is the first one on the site. Actually, the amethysts in this necklace were bought by my husband Ed when he was back in Philadelphia a year ago- gorgeous polished stones interspersed with lavender Chinese crystals and fun antique silver toned beads. I call the necklace Amethyst Dream and it has a toggle closure. The earrings are made with the chinese crystals and a smaller antique silver bead. The earring fish hooks are made of sterling silver and the set sells for $25.00
The Pendant is removable - it is a Swarovski crystal element. The necklace is 20 inches in length.

Gilded Rose....this necklace and earring set is made up of tiger eye stones in different shapes with antique gold spacer beads. The pendant is a hammered antique gold toned rose.The necklace has a gold toned rose toggle closure and the earrings are chandelier style with a single drop. $20.00 set. The necklace is 27 inches in length with an addidtional 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 pendant
This 22 inch necklace is called Jasper Sandstorm. The polished rocks are made of jasper and I have added antique gold toned beads and also two strands of brown seed beads. The necklace has a toggle closure
I was going to bead the entire main necklace but since I was using real stone rather than plastic look alikes the weight of the necklace got too heavy. So I connected the beaded strand to gold toned chain. It worked great. $22.00 set The matching earrings are made of rock chips that match the jasper in the necklace.
This beauty is called Blue on Blue. I have taken a fun pre-made strand of blue rhinestone and silver toned bracelet that I split in half to frame the blue faceted stones.
The earrings are made with sterling silver round fish hooks. $25.00 a set

We had a great time in Quartzsite and even though we missed the rock and mineral show I was still able to pick up some gorgeous strands of polished rock beads. Keep an eye open for additional updates on this site.
