Joie de Vivre jewelry

My favorite supplier for gemstone pendants is SilverRocks, a vendor I found over ten years ago at the Tucson gem show. Over the years, I've selected numerous pendants and earrings and they are always a joy to use. The craftsmanship is excellent, and the price remains very reasonable within the market.

Special Concept is a recent vendor, and I love the mixture of gemstones and pearls with smooth silver geometric shapes and lines.

The open organic shapes of the earrings from Elysium caught my eye and the feel and balance of the earrings are terrific. They are not small, but they are comfortable and lovely to wear.

Marcasite isn't the name of a company or artisan; it's the name of the tiny faceted gemstones inset in these outstanding sterling silver designs. These designs were collected from various jewelry suppliers over time and they never fail to please.
