Gift Guide: Noteworthy Necklaces

Harmonious, tribal, freeform, bold, serene, and scented (yes, scented) are just a few words that describe the noteworthy necklaces in the AJC HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE.   These expressive pieces speak volumes through their creative use of the basic design principals: color, texture, shape and form.

FEATURED ITEM – Midnight Dances

 Featured Item- AFmetalsmith

Midnight Dances: the darkness of night, the shimmer of jewels, the warm glow of candlelight… all swirl together in these earrings, and dance with their movement.

These alluring earrings were crafted by Massachussets artist, AFmetalsmith.  She combined titanium-coated drusy that sparkle and flash shades of blue, purple, and magenta over an indigo base.  The dangling wine garnets were chosen to accent the more magenta shades, while the pearls give movement and a contrast in color and texture. Rich, buttery yellow 18k gold completes the “royal look.”   Visit http://AFmetalsmith.etsy.com to the entire collection of handcrafted metal and gemstone designs.

Etsy FrontPage- DewOnAPetal

Congratulations to our member, Dew On A Petal, for having her Golden Yellow Thread Crochet Choker displayed on Etsy’s homepage.  Dew’s 15 minutes of fame actually lasted several hours during which views of her item rose from 500 to nearly 800!  She also received a custom request for one of her crocheted creations.  So, being featured on the front page is indeed powerful.
