|Citrine Necklace with Sterling Silver|
Then, there are times when I go back to the gemstones that first piqued my interest when I began making jewelry so many years ago. Precious gemstones are perennials with me, but here are some of the other gemstones in jewelry form that I have long had a romance with.
Above, citrines are one of my favorite gemstones. I love sunny yellow. The citrine necklace above is very simple, large faceted nuggets with minimal sterling silver accents. It does have a sterling silver dog-shaped clasp (the dog is stylized but resembles a dachshund). I love this necklace because it has absolutely wonderful sparkle. Oh, and I adore sparkle!
|Ruby Bracelet with 14 Karat Gold-fill|
I found fluorite to be one of the most intriguing gemstones to work with because of the purples and greens that look so great together. It is one of the first gemstones I started using artist's lampwork beads with; I loved the way the right lampwork would draw the two colors together. This bracelet has a large lampwork focal, sterling silver beads, and a pretty sterling silver box clasp with a faceted amethyst.
|Aquamarine Bracelet with Citrine and Sterling Silver|
Blue aquamarine (not the greener aquamarine) is fantastic with citrine. Think of the sun and the sky, the sun and blue water. I love this gemstone mix especially for the way that it perks up whatever I'm wearing. One gemstone alone can be classic and beautiful (see the ruby bracelet above), but put two primary colors together and you suddenly have a statement piece. This bracelet will be on our Aquamarine Bracelets page.
