Fall 2012 Jewelry Collection

Hi!  Now that fall is in full swing and Thanksgiving is right around the corner I figured I'd better share my fall 2012 jewelry collection.  I know I am usually running a month or so behind everyone else but I really do try my best to keep up with the crowd!  So while the rest of the world is already busy working on their goodies for Christmas, I'm finally ready to share my autumn inspired work with you! 

Wild Berry necklace by Grey Girl Designs on Etsy
  My Wild Berry necklace is a perfect combination of shades of green African jade chips, green glass beads and kambaba jasper mixed with deep red garnet and sterling silver.  It is an adaptable necklace and can be worn as a one strand or two strand necklace.  Wear it the way you like! 

My Wild Berry earrings were made to compliment the necklace, but of course they'd be perfect by themselves as well.  These earrings are fun and dangly post style earrings that hang 2.25" and feature sterling silver, green glass beads and garnet.

Another adaptable design, my Pumpkin Spice necklace can be worn as a two strand statement necklace, or a one strand necklace with a matching bracelet.  It's a delicious blend of tiger jasper, red aventurine, crazy horse stone and sterling silver.  The focal point is a Hill Tribes antiqued fine silver pendant (24x12mm) created by hand in the remote mountain areas of Thailand.  It is stamped with a design of leaves and flowers.

I created a pair of earrings to compliment the Pumpkin Spice necklace too, these Pumpkin Spice earrings:

These delicate sterling silver fish hook style earrings hang approx 2.25". They feature sterling silver components, tiger jasper stone and red aventurine.  I thought this unusual color combination would really stand out for fall! 

For a bit more drama in your wardrobe, I created the Smoke and Ashes necklace:

This one of a kind necklace features fire crackle agate rounds perfectly faceted to sparkle, complimented by faceted smoky quartz and lots of brilliant sterling silver. It is finished with a sterling silver lobster claw clasp and a delicate sterling silver feather charm that hangs sexily down the back of your neck for an extra special touch.  This one is perfect for a night out on the town.

I love those fire crackle agate beads so I had to make earrings with them too.  Here's the Smoke and Ashes earrings:

These unique earrings are one of a kind and designed to complement my Smoke and Ashes necklace.  The sterling silver fishhook style earrings hang approximately 1.75".  They are sure to add a touch of glamour and excitement to any outfit!

 I just love the beautiful colors of autumn, don't you?  I tried to capture some of the hues of fall in this next necklace. It features a large Indian agate (also known as fancy jasper) focal stone (35mmx20mm) surrounded by sterling silver, coppery colored cultured freshwater pearls and faceted fancy jasper rounds. This is my Autumn Treasure necklace:

It finishes with a sterling silver lobster claw clasp and a delicate sterling silver leaf. I have selected this necklace as a Madcap Charity item. I want to help those affected by the recent Hurricane Sandy. So many people have suffered from this disaster! With the sale of this necklace I will donate a portion to the American Red Cross to help support the victims of Hurricane Sandy in the northeastern United States.  The Wild Berry earrings are also a Madcap Charity item with a portion of the sales pledged to help this cause.

The last but not least addition to my fall collection is the November Blaze necklace:

November Blaze celebrates the fiery colors of fall. It was inspired by a walk through the trees in early November, the oranges and greens of foliage were so brilliant and eye catching that I wanted to convey that beauty in a piece of jewelry so it could be worn all year long. It features a large red agate oval (40x28mm) surrounded by more red agate, delicate leaf shaped sterling silver beads, sterling silver chain and fancy jasper.  I think it's a great statement necklace to add a pop of fall color to your life.  

Thanks so much for taking a look at my fall 2012 collection!  I put a lot of time and careful thought into each piece I design.  If you would like more info about any of these pieces please visit my Etsy shop for more detail.  There are several more pictures of each as well as measurements.  You can also send me a message on Etsy if you have any questions at all.  I would love it if you'd leave a comment here and let me know what you think!
