A giveaway YOU don't want to miss!!!

This absolutely GORGEOUS necklace was donated by my new online friend Carol Dekle-Foss from TerraRusticADesign.  I just purchased a similar piece from Carol and it's incredible!!! 


The copper rose necklace is feminine and romantic, yet rustic and simple. Wear the copper rose necklace with your favorite jeans, brown boots and tan sweater over a white tank. Top off the look with a copper colored beret.

The pendant is an Mookatie stone and the color is mocha with a slight hint of lavender. I sand-carved the rose design onto the face and then painted it with copper metallic non-toxic paint.

The pendant is wrapped with oxidized copper wire and strung with a 1mm brown leather cord. The necklace is finished with a handmade copper clasp that has been oxidized and then machine and hand polished to create a lovely shine.

I checked out her site, and fell in love with the blue labadorite celtic knot necklace!

Alice said...

Wow, I didn't know stones could be carved that intricately!

I love the handmade jewelry displays she showed on her blog. I've been looking to change mine because I dislike the faux leather which adds nothing to my display.

I fell in the love the African Green Opal necklace - Autumn Breeze. I am in love with them all, and her packaging is divine.

I never even imagined that semi-precious gemstones could be sand blasted or carved! Who would'a thunk....

awesome work!!

Christine said...

The African green Autumn Breeze blew me away...just caught the pun. Beautiful piece and gorgeous colors. I have to go back and look again!

Christine said...

I went to Staci Louise's shop and really like her work. The Lichen bracelet struck me. I don't know if I can afford to keep looking at these cool shops!

Carol said...

I really like her style.
Bird on a Wire, Circle of Life and African Opal all appealed to me. Lovely pieces.
