Art Deco Art Glass and Pyramid Glass Necklace: I created this necklace from a bevy of art deco beads I had been saving from various bits and pieces of broken necklaces. All of the beads are authentic deco as is the brass clasp. The focal point of the necklace is the four large banded glass beads. Their colors simply pop! I used coral "raspberry" beads and small round glass beads to pick out the reddish/coral color stripes in the beads and filled the strand with wonderful pyramid shaped beads in matching colors. The base of each has a filigree brass end cap. The clasp is an authentic deco screw clasp, which holds securely. The necklace is strung on a double strand of silk for strength. The necklace measures 18".
Artisan Sterling Amethyst and Pearl Pendant Necklace: This stunning pendant necklace is an artisan crafted one of a kind piece. The focal point of the pendant is a large emerald cut, medium purple faceted amethyst measuring approx 19 x 14 mm. According to the conversion chart this stone weighs a bit over 15cts, but that is approximate. The stone is securely bezel set. The top of the pendant features a graceful scroll on each side of a glowing half pearl, also bezel set. The bail is fan shaped and large enough for most chains or cords. The pendant measures 2 by 3/4" and is signed 925 with an unknown makers mark. A truly glorious piece! I added a 16" sterling oval "bead" chain marked 925, Italy.
Vintage Artisan Geometric Modernist Inlaid Metal Brooch Cultured Pearl: This amazing modernist brooch is artisan crafted, but unsigned. The work is incredibly detailed, with depth and dimension. The brooch is inlaid with a variety of materials in white, black and brick red. I am unable to tell what the material is. The recessed areas are inlaid with small angled tiles of gold and copper colored material. A 6 mm genuine cultured pearl adorns the open center of the brooch. The metal is a dense, heavy dark metal, doesn't test as sterling and is not pewter. I truly have no idea what it is. The craftsmanship on this brooch is amazing. It measures 1 3/4 by 1 1/2 and is shockingly unsigned.
Vintage Artisan Blue Lucite Snake Bead with Japanese Millefiori Beads: This wonderful vintage necklace from the 70's was artisan created from rich blue lucite snake beads, capped with heavy silver tone bead caps made especially for these beads. Three large Japanese millefiori beads add drama to the necklace, black with multi color flowers. The necklace is perfect to wear alone or layer, as it is 29" in length. The push in clasp holds securely.

This bracelet is visually appealing, and will work well with many styles of jewelry. The bracelet measures 1 1/4" wide with an opening of 1". It is 2 1/4" in diameter. It has a wonderful, rich patina, but could be polished if you prefer.
Fabulous Vintage Brass Copper Silver Mixed Metal Collar: This gorgeous vintage mixed metal collar is composed of solid brass inlaid with copper and silver. Possibly Mexico in origin, as these pieces were popular in the 60's-70's and many were made there by skilled artisans. The brass has a nice heavy weight and measure approx. 12" along the inside top edge with a 2" opening and is 3/4" wide.
Artisan Sterling and Mexico Fire Opal Pendant: Fabulous in every way, this hand crafted OOAK pendant features an ornate and heavy sterling design. To me, it looks like a tree sprite holding a large ( 15x12mm) Mexican Fire Opal cabochon. The center of the opal has a wonderful window that flashes colors of red, orange and green. The pendant is marked sterling and also has the initials JB engraved on the back. The pendant measures 2 by 1 1/8". A truly unique artisan piece! WAS 179.00 Now 135.00!
