Garnet For January

I've introduced three new pieces to my winter jewelry collection featuring January's birthstone, Garnet.

The CABERNET Earrings are detailed with wire wrapping along the sterling silver frame and topped with a cluster of garnet gemstone chips. At the bottom hangs a very beautiful, highly faceted onion briolette of garnet in the deepest shade of blackish red. These earrings have a great flirty swing.

The SMOLDER Bracelet was inspired by a beautiful quote from an unlikely source (visit the listing to read it!) which compares love to an undying fire. How romantic! So I created this lovely color combination to tell the tale of true love's endurance. I think it would make a perfectly romantic gift.

The bracelet consists of a handmade gemstone chain detailed with a wire wrapped flourish and a beautiful briolette of rutilated quartz suspended from the extension chain.

The coordinating SMOLDER Pendant features a cluster of the same gems and beads (labradorite, garnet, and jet black crystal) falling from a snake-like wire work formation and culminating in a rutilated quartz briolette.
