Stone Pendant Necklaces, Vintage Garden Art/Plate Flowers, & Household Collectibles
I make reasonably-priced/inexpensive pendant necklaces using natural polished stones, semi-precious stones, and high quality synthetic stones. Most items are set 925 sterling silver over a copper base, so are lighter weight but good quality. A few pieces combine new materials with vintage. There are also some dichroic/fused glass and lampwork pieces. There are a few earring/necklace sets, too. Items will be added to the "Jewelry" section as they are ready for sale, so please check back often!
I also make garden art plate flowers and suncatchers. The plate flowers are crafted from vintage glass & china that I have accumulated from yard/garage sales, second-hand stores, etc. I've upcycled/recycled/repurposed these dishes to make suncatchers/garden art flowers. Since I love colored glass and vintage dishes, I've found this is a great new way to enjoy these pretty dishes rather than having them stashed away and not being used. The suncatchers are a mix of recycled/repurposed materials and new materials combined to create eye-catching sparkling window or garden suncatchers.
I am also still selling my household collectibles, as I am downsizing. I've enjoyed many of these items for many years, and they've all been displayed in curio cabinets unless otherwise stated, and I try to be as accurate in my descriptions as possible. I hope any collectible item(s) you purchase bring you the same enjoyment as they have for me.

Additional policies and FAQs
It is my understanding from my suppliers that most of the stones I'm using are authentic. If I believe (or know for certain) they are synthetic or color-enhanced, I list that information in the description. However, I am not an expert in gemology and have only a layman's knowledge about stones based on reading I've done. I do my best to honestly and accurately describe items and photograph them as accurately as I can. I cannot certify through testing whether stones are natural or manmade.
Because I cannot absolutely say if the semi-precious stones I use are genuine, I have priced items lower than what the market typically sees for genuine stones such as labradorite, moonstone, etc. in the event they are not natural; however, as I said, if I don't list them as synthetic it is my belief they are genuine. Additionally, many stones (particularly agates) are color enhanced.
