New Ebay Store!

Today I opened up a new Ebay Store called Sparkle and Charm Jewelry. After a phone conversation with a very nice man from Ebay On Ramp, I'm ready to start listing. He advised that I should have a minimum of 25 active regular auctions and at least 80% of my jewelry in store inventory. That means I will list 75 jewelry items into the store in the next week or so. I have made some beautiful earrings and necklaces, and now I will be able to offer them at a fraction of the cost of regular Ebay listings. I'm excited. Please look at my new store when you have time.

Black chunky chandeliers. These are made with black amythyst chips, specially combined by size and shape so that the earrings are very close to matching. They measure 1 3/4" long from the ear wire, are made with pure sterling silver wire, chain and ear loops, are lightweight and very creative and interesting. Posted by Picasa

Amethyst necklace on gold in four strands Posted by Picasa

Amethyst chip and rondelle necklace

This necklace is made with two kinds of real amethysts. There are amethyst chips, which are dark purple, and are strung so there are five or six of them together, which creates a beautiful effect in the design. There are also amethyst rondelles, which are oval stone beads that are beautiful, with the transparancy and the lovely color of deep lavender amethyst. Between these beads, I have added a variety of colors of purples and lavenders in cracked glass squared beads and also small lavender faceted Czech crystals. The necklace is three strands of beautiful beads, which are crocheted and lightly braided and arrangeable.
