I decided to include this page after looking through my collection of cabochons and carved semi-precious stones because it reminded me that though some were very similar, no two were exactly alike. In general the agates and jaspers show the most individuality. Please remember that I can make a second piece of jewelry just like one you might have seen here at an earlier date, but it wont look the same because the premier semi-precious stone or stones display their own unique patterns.
This also applies to the freshwater pearl necklace shown here because I purposely mixed colors, sizes, and shapes of pearls to make what I consider a more interesting necklace than the classic graduated round pearl necklace and probably couldn't make another exactly alike even if I tried!
Not Your Grandma's Pearls
Like most people, I admire the luster of pearls, but I find the traditional "string of pearls" kind of boring. One of the vendors at a wholesale gem show had temprorarily strung a bunch of mismatched pearls from his inventory and it gave me an idea. This is a 20 inch strand of freshwater pearls, strung on hand knotted silk with sterling silver clasp. I purposely placed different colors and shapes next to each other so that the uniqueness of each one would show. I've been mentally labeling them "confetti pearls".

Moss Agate Pendant
I have hesitated to put this piece up for sale for a long time because it's one of favorite ones. The large green agate cabochon and faceted blue topaz compliment each other well. Given that I seldom wear a necklace and that I think this particular one would look much nicer on someone larger and taller than I am, it just sits here in a plastic bag. That's a shame as I want my creation to be seen and enjoyed!
