Rectangle Black Onyx German Shepherd - AB-GER1

My grandfather had a special dog that I used to love to visit and play with as a small child, and we enjoyed our time together in the backyard with him whenever I was visiting. - Sherri
Red Rose Dichroic Glass Pendant - JC-KCRDRO

My grandmother loved roses and even wore a perfume that had a rose scent and I think of her whenever I see a rose blooming. - Sherri
Murano Style Glass 10x14mm Silver, Blue, Purple Roundel Bead - BEAD-0142

As a kid, I used to love going to my grandmother's house to explore her collection of artistic glass. I love this Murano style glass bead because the colors and style remind me of her. - Katie
6mm Round Stardust Bead with 1.6mm Hole - S-RND6-SD

I love stardust beads! They glitter beautifully in the light, but are subtle enough to be used in a variety of designs. My sister and I like to use them in earrings for a bit of extra sparkle. - Katie
Sterling Silver Crab Charm - CHARM389

Crabs can be kind of goofy, but this little cutie reminds me of the beach and the tickle of their tiny legs on my hand. - Cortney
Blue Free Style Bicone Beads - LMP-0169

The color and texture of these lampwork beads are perfect for my grandmother and her love for “chunky” jewelry. I’ll just add a blue hand-dyed silk ribbon and some bead caps and be ready for her birthday! - Cortney
Ocean Swirl Dichroic Boro Glass Sea Turtle Bead - BEAD-0464

Turtles are special to me and I think a lot of people can associate with this slow mover that gets ahead by sticking his neck out! This little guy has it all together with dichroic sparkle and a cheerful expression. - Teri
Antique Brass Flower and Dragonfly Hook and Eye Clasp - BBA-CL16

Nature girl, at any age! There is so much Art Nouveau detail in this lovely clasp and once closed, the dragonfly sits on the flower. I like it so much I used two in a design that converts from a necklace to a bracelet! - Teri
Black Finish Pewter Swallow Charm - BKO-2300

One of my all time favorite charms has to be this sweet Swallow, in any finish: copper, silver, gold, or black, all great detail front and back. Perfect for earrings, you can make a right and a left. - Teri
Divine Rock Pendant Montana - 6191-MON27

One word…Montana.  This piece reminds me of home. It portrays the shape of rugged rock and stone while reflecting Montana's big blue sky. It is simply gorgeous! - Jen
