The Family Jewels

My Aunt Gail and her daughter, Jamie are designing beautiful jewelry!  I couldn’t wait to blog about it!  Here are some pictures of a few of their designs…all one of a kind pieces…

Every piece is thoughtfully handmade with a certain aesthetic in mind.

coraltreeThe popular tree of life pendent is pictured here in carnelian and my personal favorite, jade!!!.  Copper wire is used not only because it is  beautiful and long lasting, it is also easier on the wallet!  Even the silver wires are copper inside!  The silver doesn’t wear or scratch off…which is really cool!jadetreeThis stunning choker is from the Princess Quinn collection.  Three silver strands are joined together with Swarovski crystals in jet and emerald.  Suspended from the necklace are briolette's and of course the crowning jewel is a baroque emerald crystal!choker

This geometric delight is silver/copper wire strung with glass seed beads.  The double strand necklace is accented with silver Swarovski elements.  The actual pendant is copper enameled with a gorgeous turquoise.jamiesjewels

This stunning lapis statement piece is showcased by intricately wrapped copper wire, the scrolls and bale complement the oval shape perfectly!

Yeah! This is my fave!lapispendent

Ever the creative duo, Gail and Jamie have created several collections to enhance the appeal of each individual piece.  Naming the stuff is always my favorite part!!

The Anntastic  collection is named after Jamie's daughter and represents the trendy girl who likes a statement piece.

FAR inspired by Jamie’s Favorite Aunt Rita.  Luscious jewel tones abound in this Orient influenced collection.

Frances, Gail’s mom has influenced the Franciful designs.  Ideal for everyday at work, school or church.  Subtle, but never boring.

Metal and natural stones converge in the elemental collection, which brings to mind earth, air, water and fire.

For the sophisticated woman who favors the classic designs, Black Tie is the perfect fit.

Weddings, holidays and other special occasions are represented in the festive celebrations line.

The Katie Bug group presents a bevy of youthful whimsy featuring angel wings and animals, all the sparkle a little girl could want!
A sobriquet for Jamie's charming granddaughter, Princess Quinn,  is a medley of  sparkly crystals and of course crown jewels!
A mélange of  beach glass, enamels, and freshwater pearls.  From neutral and soft beach tones to brilliant tropical colors. You will want ShellyPerfect for a cruise or visit to the islands! 
Morgan Thomas designs will have their first trunk show at Beads and More in Montgomery TX on  May 14th.
If any bloggerettes are in the area, I hope you’ll stop by and say hi to them from me!

note:  I have used different colors and fonts on the collection’s names.  In case they don’t read perfectly on your computer, I apologize.

I guess this post sounds like a commercial, but, I am so proud of them and the fabulous job they are doing.  I just had to tell the world!  At least my corner of the Blogging World!!

Gone to place my order for something shiny!!!!
