It's Too Hot To Cook! So Here's Some Jewelry!!

When I'm not cooking I'm usually designing or styling one thing or another, visit my other site to see my creative side!.  Since I don't see many people cooking today due to some heat issues, I thought I'd share some jewelry I've been working on.   I think they are going to be posted on Etsy once I get my shop up and running.  
This one has blue topaz and aquamarine rough cut beads along with sterling, gold and Czech glass on three strands.  Since I live on the water the colors remind me of the water and moon at dusk.
This one is a Rutilated Quartz stone that I set in a sterling bezel and accented with a pom-pom of Swarovski Crystal beads in black, slate and ice.  I loved the graphic quality of the stone.
I had so much fun choosing all of the beads for this bracelet.  The beads are a combination of natural, glass and Venetian beads on a sterling handmade bracelet.  It's so girly and so much fun to wear!
I dreamed about this ring before I made it.  The stone is a London Blue Topaz that I set and a 22k gold bezel mounted on a thick sterling band.  I know I use a lot of blues, I just can't get enough of that color!
Fun drop earrings for day or night. Sterling and crystal, they are so light weight you don't even know you have them on (until someone give you a compliment).
I love mixing materials.  Again, these are just fun and go with so many different types of looks.  I combined coconut disks with gold chain and gold crystals.  So lightweight they are great for summer.
I made a ton of the "Drops" series with different colors and different stones.  Sterling set with beautiful turquoise and crystal beads.
