Alluring Mermaid Copper Jewelry

Though I don't know that I believe mermaids are real, contrary to what Animal Planet says, I find them a most romantic notion.  Enchanting mermaids were said to mesmerize sailors with their beauty, grace and song.  Mermaids symbolize love, wild freedom and independence.

Shown here is my new copper mermaid ankle bracelet.  Hand crafted with solid copper chain, beautiful teal Peking onyx gemstone beads and a detailed mermaid copper charm.  Perfect beach jewelry or wear it to remind yourself of your feminine power.

New Vintage Swans Cameo Necklace at Bittersweet Ridge

No, I do not have swans on the series of spring ponds that my jewelry studio overlooks.  Only ducks and geese.  However, if I close my eyes, I can imagine a pair of these graceful birds dancing on the water... and they'd look something like this!

My vintage swans cameo necklace is a one of a kind piece and I believe it is very romantic.  You know, swans are a symbol of enduring love.  A perfect totem of beauty and grace.

I tried to stay true to that spirit as I created a necklace to surround this truly vintage cameo.  The swimming swans image is hand painted on glass which gives it a wonderfully changing finish and glow.  The necklace is composed of chubby champagne colored crystal rondelle beads, along with big fat chunky wavy ovals of old ivory colored Quartz and Aragonite round gemstone beads.

What a beautiful gift for a bride, a member of any bridal party or as a very special Mother's Day gift.

Hot Pink Lampwork Flower Bracelet from Bittersweet Ridge

It seems to me that spring comes in softly, but soon ripens into wild vivid floral hues.  At least, that's my inspiration for this bright beauty of a flower bracelet.

This one of a kind, handmade floral delight begins with a bright hot pink Mother of Pearl flower blossom.  I couldn't resist adding some tiny faceted Peridot gemstone beads and pink Czech glass for a stamen.  Then I surrounded this beauty with artisan lampwork beads and fat pink crystal rondelle beads.  These handmade lampwork beads carry on the pink theme with raise fuscia flowers, glass encased sweet pink blossoms, and hot pink swirling circles.  All combined with gold jeweler's wire.

Fun to wear and a fabulous Mother's Day gift for a woman who appreciates handmade jewelry and the glory of the garden.

Sweet Coral and Pink Opal Flower Blossom Bracelet

Some spring blossoms may seem shy, sweetly blooming underneath stickery branches - like this flowering quince just outside my jewelry studio.  Others simply really are so delicate and sweet that it makes the heart sing.

Here's one of my new flower bracelets that is more like the later.  A sweet deep rose peach Coral flower blossom is surrounded by soft sage green Serpentine gemstone carved leaves and round beads.  Some pink Peruvian Opal beads resemble little flower buds.  The clasp is a very pretty floral silver toggle.

An amazing Mother's Day gift idea for a woman who appreciates the sweetness of a spring garden and handmade jewelry created with love.
