Raw Sapphires. Jewel Candy.

I was drawn to this necklace in the case at Magpie Jewelry. I had no idea what the stones were. I just found it to have unique beauty with a combination of substance and refinement.

Love. My Name Necklace.

Inspired by Carrie Bradshaw. Yes I was. I was familiar with name necklaces from high school. They were very popular at the time. I always coveted one, as I do love things with a personal touch.

Murano Glass. Gift of Memories.

This delicate pendant is from Venice. It’s hand-blown Murano Glass and a gift from my daughter who recently traveled to Italy on a school trip. She knows I like artisan jewelry and chose it with that in mind. The design is called millefiori, meaning “a thousand flowers”. Each piece is unique and the colors are…
