Recent additions

As promised, I have a couple of more additions to my "Simplicity" line of jewelry. I love funky and unusual stones and the ocean jasper stone definitely falls into that category for me. The colors and texture really do remind me of barnacles clinging to ocean stones - just love it! And in this case, I opted to use a brown leather cord with a sterling clasp to highlight the earthiness of the stone.

Pietersite is also one of my all-time favorite stones. The last gem show I attended I just couldn't seem to stay away from this unusual beauty - the swirls of gray-blue, purply-pink and cream in this lovely stone just kept calling to me until I caved in and bought a couple of pendants in different shapes. A sterling silver chain lets the stone take center stage.

I hope you like my latest additions!
