crystal paradise skull necklace



Skulls, sparkle, silver, simplicity. This insane Swarovski Crystal Paradise skull pendant needs nothing but a bit of modern cable chain and a rhinestone headpin to compliment it's full-spectrum shine. The colors on the prismatic coating change with each turn and stroke of light - it can look sea foam green at one angle, then switch to neon magenta with hints of chartreuse with just a quarter turn. Part 80s, part punk, part goth, 100% dope!

bohemian bliss agate necklaces



I think my accessory of Summer 2015 is definitely my Bohemian Bliss agate necklaces. I combine agate (or even geode and gemstone pendants) slices, metallics, Swarovski crystals and chain to create eclectic layering pieces that are perfect for hippies, yogis, or really anyone who loves boho style! What's great about these is that each is a little different, depending on the natural color of the stone, shape, and texture. That will dictate which type of metallic transfer I apply, and ultimately the finished look of the piece. A two-coat waterproof lacquer over the surface keeps the metallics sealed, and gives a polished shine. I have probably made about 30 so far. It's addicting. Each slice is like a tiny canvas, allowing me to create sparkly works of art!
