Take these beautiful long and lean onyx drop earrings, for example. I found them at the Tuscon Gem Show this year, and immediately loved their uniquely long length (about 1" long) and their super chic, slender shape. From your favorite little black dress to a more casual look of jeans and a cute top, they'll work with just about anything.
This cool tourmalinated quartz necklace is another favorite from my fall collection. I was lucky enough to find these absolutely gorgeous, very large (approx 1") faceted tourmalinated quartz drops at a local supplier, and "wrapped" the top in sterling silver rope. Then I paired the roped drop with some very cool heavy chain. It's difficult to see the chain detail, but each link has a beautiful fine texture to it. I have one of these necklaces myself, and it's such a versatile piece. I get compliments on it all the time! Oh, I guess I should note that there is only one left.

Here, we have an endlessly chic bracelet. I offset the chrysoprase with textured diamond and circle links and added a large lobster style clasp. The large stone in the middle is a very pure green, with hardly any surface inclusions. Seriously, these stones are just decadent!As always, you can find each item on my web site. In general, everything in my shop is produced in very limited quantities, but these pieces in particular are a little different. Since I only was able to purchase a single strand of these beads, these items are distinctly one-of-a-kind.
Translation: If you love it, don't wait! I don't think they'll be around too long.
On the off chance that they are around for a while, well then, I'll just have to make room in my personal stash ;)
