Buy an Item Get a Free Gift = FAIL

That promotion was my first and it failed I assume largely in part due to the lack of forewarning =( anyways lets get beyond the "would of, could of, should of, to the fact that this ring is now listed in the shop for sale. It's a really nice ring that takes a bit of manual labor to make and I must say I am very pleased with the quality and look of it, as I'm keeping one for myself Yar! ;)
The Ye Ol' Pirate Ring can be seen in the shop by clicking here

Greek Nouveau Chandelier Earrings

New to the Shop Greek Nouveau Chandelier Earrings

Elegant and ornately detailed these earrings remind me of something the ancient Greeks would fancy. The faceted bronze czech glass fire polished bead stands out delightfully as it is captured between two brass watch gears and then framed by a pair of simple white beads. These earrings with their steampunk flare really embrace a new take on an Ancient Greek look hence they are named Greek Nouveau. These earrings measure 1.25 inches (3.1cm) in length from the bottom of the brass ear wire and are .5 of an inch (1.2 cm) wide.

These took me a bit to piece together and I am loving how it turned out. This is the first time I've used gears as bead caps and the fine detailed look they give is amazing! Although I doubt I will be making another pair of these specific earrings, I do look forward to utilizing the gears like these as bead caps in more of my creations.

New to the Shop - Labradorescence

Labradorescence Tie Tack Lapel Pin

The labradorite gemstone upon this tie tack is a sight to behold as it dances with a brilliant blue fire dances across its surface and has some nice clarity. The gemstone is set in a barrel drum which sits upon a balance wheel and a graciously sized pocket watch gear giving it an exquisite edgy look.
To make it quite simple, this tie tack is simply stunning.
The tie tack measures .7 of and inch (1.7cm) in diameter.

I really love the labradorite cabochon which was chosen to be the focal of this piece because of it's clarity and flashy brilliant blue display. I was fortunate to be able to hand pick this cabochon and other labradorite cabochons, which will be seen in following items, from a seller at one of the many gem shows that happen in Santa Monica.
