The pieces below are 4 necklaces and one bracelet. The bracelet is completely embroidered. The necklaces are a combination of embroidery and a technique called vertical netting, or Mexican vertical netting. The materials I've used range from genuine garnets, genuine lavendar jade, rose quartz, adventurine, magnasite, Swarovski crystal, and Czech firepolish and press glass. The embroidered pieces are backed in leather to ensure long lasting wear and durability. These pieces will be gifts for my girlfriends and one piece will be donated to a charity auction. I rarely sell anything... if only because I can't get out of them what I put into them. haha. When a piece takes 25-30 hours to complete, it's hard to sell it for its real value. So I just do this for the love of doing it.
