Black & white crystal collar necklace

Another new listing!

I’ve been trying (and hopefully succeeding!) to rev up my Etsy shop these past few weeks with new listings, updated photos, better descriptions, anything that will make my creations stand out in a sea of beautiful jewelry.  What do you think of my latest item?

Black & white crystal collar necklace

This elegant collar necklace is perfect for a formal occasion or special event.  I call it my “blizzard baby” in honor of its wintry color scheme and the wild snowstorm that raged outside during its construction!

Bold black 10 x 10 mm Swarovski crystal stairway beads are the focal points of this piece.  The stairway beads are accented by grey and clear Swarovski crystal bicones and sterling silver spacers.  Additional sterling silver beads and components complete the piece.  This multi strand necklace includes a sterling silver chain extender for adjusting its length from 16″ – 18″.  It closes with a sterling silver lobster claw clasp.

The classic black, white, and grey color scheme of this bib necklace coordinates easily with any outfit.  Wear it to a wedding, an anniversary party, a holiday function, anywhere you like.  No matter the season or the occasion, you will feel extra special with two strands of sterling silver and crystal sparkling delicately at your neck.

Even at its shortest length, this necklace is comfortable to wear.  Its two strands of beads lay flat against the skin and move easily with you.  With its multitude of crystals, this necklace does have some weight.  It is recommended to wear this piece at or just above the collarbone.

Bold black agate necklace

Bold black agate necklace

I bought this black agate pendant years ago at a bead show in central Massachusetts, and it took me a very long time to decide what to do with it.  I first tried to design an elaborate beaded necklace with black, white, and gray crystals to complement the natural colors of the stone itself, but that plan never really spoke to me.  I moved on to large round onyx beads for a chunky look, but that didn’t feel right either.  It just seemed like I was trying too hard.  I was so happy when I found an extra black rubber cord necklace in my stash of supplies.  The cord sets off the pendant perfectly without overpowering it.  This simple yet striking necklace is available for sale in my Etsy shop.

Bold, glamorous, sophisticated, timeless.  All perfect words to describe these beautiful black and white earrings.  I especially love the Swarovski crystal chessboard beads.  They look like miniature disco balls!  I should work up some new designs to showcase more chessboard beads, they are just so much fun.  These earrings are made with all sterling silver components and are available for sale in my Etsy shop.
