It's an addiction that feeds my creative passion...

I've been creating new pieces like a lunatic!!! :)

Do you remember the heart shaped Amethyst Druzy pieces I purchased two weeks ago from the International Gem and Jewelry Show?


I am so glad that I purchased three of them as this beauty sold during the
Fog Fest this past weekend. My jewelry is carried locally at The Pickled Hutch in Pacifica, California.

Hand wrapped, silver soldered and buffed to a beautiful shine ...the amethyst heart exceeded my expectations of how beautiful it would turn out.
Nestled between freshwater pearls are cubic zirconia rondelles, faceted Czech crystals and chunky Ametrine (amethyst/citrine) wire wrapped in sterling silver.
A touch of vintage rhinestone bling was added to the created soldered bail.

I wish my photo's conveyed the true color of the amethyst heart is not "black" as it shows in my photo's.

A beautiful vintage rhinestone finding and chunky metal chain, handmade hammered silver soldered links mixed with elongated faceted crystals and vintage metal beads were used in the design and creation of this one of a kind piece.

I found this fabulous vintage large metal with blue flower finding while shopping at one the local flea markets in San Francisco. I thought it would make an interesting focal pendant.

Hammered silver soldered links wire wrapped with a mix of turquoise, labadorite, opal beads, cubic zirconia rondelles and unique findings with a touch of applied vintage rhinestones were used for a touch of bling on this one of a kind neck piece.

I love working with Madonna images...

An embellished spiritual image of the Madonna using chalks and German glass glitter, a gorgeous faceted crystal with an amazing table showing the image clearly. Copper wrapped and silver soldered. A vintage cross and finding; both soldered to the crystal image. Hammered silver soldered links wire wrapped to a mix of chunky faceted clear crystal beads, rondelles and Czech crystals. Accented by a sterling silver and cubic zirconia hand oxidized cross.

A one of a kind creation by Romancing the Bling!

A cross, medallion, faceted moonstone, vintage chaining, rosaries and vintage Aurora Borealis flower findings dangle below oxidized sterling silver french wires.

A re-purposed vintage rhinestone neck chain with a secure box closure connects to wire wrapped mother of pearl rosary beads, Czech faceted crystals and faceted moonstone rondelles connect securely to a vintage rhinestone shoe clip and accented by a sterling silver (soldered) Cala Lily finding. A mix of rosary beads, faceted moonstone, vintage cross and Jesus photo findings with a vintage Aurora Borealis flower charm dangle freely.

Another one of a kind necklace by Romancing the Bling.

A 1920's vintage rhinestone and pot metal finding is the featured piece in this one of a kind creation presented by Romancing the Bling.

A mix of mother of pearl rosary beads wire wrapped and connected to hammered silver solder links, vintage chain pieces, white milk glass and blue jade beads. Securely dangling below are a vintage patina cross, spiritual medallion, jade and milk glass beads with a lovely vintage rhinestone finding.

I am afraid of MOST spiders!

I just couldn't resist making a couple of soldered oxidized CZ and freshwater pearl leather metal and rhinestone grommet snap bracelets. This one has sold!

The heart is Citrine and i've silver solder it by encasing it along the top and sides. It dangles freely below a vintage metal flower flea market find. A mix of hammered silver soldered links connect to vintage crystal rosary beads, wire wrapped chunky Ametrine, amethyst and rock crystal bead with vintage patina silver beads.

Yes, it is one of a kind!

I have always loved this image of the Madonna and child; a vintage prayer card.

Using beautiful olive green mother of pearl blister beads, Picasso Czech faceted crystals, amethyst beads and fresh water pearls in a sage green are wire wrapped and connected with hammered silver soldered links, which securely join all components together.

This beautiful soldered pendant includes a sterling silver leaf accent with a mother of pearl blister bead, amethyst and Czech crystals. A freckling of vintage rhinestones embellish the top of the pendant.

One of a kind creation by Romancing the Bling!

I hope you enjoyed viewing my new creations that will soon be listed in my Etsy Shop, and can be found at The Pickled Hutch, Pacifica, California.

Wow! I can't believe I posted twice in one day!
