Statement Necklaces for Women Gold Necklaces Bib Necklace Handmade Chunky Necklace Statement Jewelry Necklace Long Necklace Boho
Statement necklaces for women like this gold necklace are truly unique! I have created the chunky necklace jewelry with gorgeous, vintage and modern jewelry pieces. Each link in the bib necklace is a unique and lovely work of art. If you are looking for an extravagant handmade chunky necklace, you need look no further than long necklace. The 24 inch adjustable necklace ends with pretty, hand-linked, white glass pearls. It closes securely with a gold overlay lobster claw clasp.

The necklace is sturdy but should be handled with care. Avoid exposing it to perfume and other body lotions. Treat it with the respect a beautiful piece deserves! ~BlondePeachJewelry
Cross and Moon Earrings, Sodalite Crystals Mystical Handmade Jewelry
The unique CROSS AND MOON handmade earrings definitely radiate a sense of mystical appeal.  Artisan made rustic pewter cross and moon dangles are the eye catching focals of the earrings.  Perfectly complementing the charms, rounds blue sodalite gemstones and sparkling light sapphire blue Swarovski crystals were stacked above, along with sterling silver daisy spacers and beads.  Earrings with a great amount of alluring movement, the cross and moon charms shimmer with each movement of the head when worn. Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs carefully designed and handmade the CROSS AND MOON earrings for the woman who loves one of a kind jewelry. ~shadowdogdesigns

These unusual earrings are made with metal tambourine music charms. They are silver toned with gold toned jingles (zils). They dangle from gold plated lever back earring wires. Very cute!

Speckled Yellow Blue Tan Spring Lampwork Bracelet and .925 Earrings

astel shades of yummy daffodil yellow, blue, white and tan in this lampwork bracelet bring blossoming spring flowers to mind. To create this cheerful bracelet I selected two types of lampwork beads. Across the top of the bracelet are coin shaped lampwork with a white background and speckles with soft pink, sky blue and tan dots of color. In between the coin lampwork I used genuine Preciosa crystal bicones in a beautiful shade call indicolite. This lovely blue crystal will bring out the blue speckles in the lampwork coins. Going down each side of the bracelet are white and yellow lampwork roundel shaped beads. The background is white and the soft daffodil yellow drips with color around the beads. In between I selected vivid Czech yellow opal fire polished crystals to enhance the yellow in the lampwork. The bracelet is finished off with flower shaped pewter bead caps, ViaMurano twisted tornado crimps in a moonlight shade and sterling silver wire guards to protect the Soft Flex yellow beading wire. This will add longevity and prevent breakage of the wire with long use. For the closure I used a sweet, tiny Anna toggle by TierraCast. Via Murano, Soft Flex and TierraCast are companies based in the United States and have the highest quality jewelry findings. ~KatsAllThat
