Her other specialty are necklaces called NeckWreaths. They are crocheted from fine gauge sterling silver wire and then “woven” together with her secret sewing technique! They close with sturdy “mag lok” TM magnetic clasps which are embedded in her handmade polymer clay cones.

The wreaths are adjustable in length from 16-18″ long. They incorporate new beads, like the photobeads, vintage beads as well as resin and semi precious stones and pearls.

    I’ve always wanted to collect my own beach stones and glass. I guess it would help if I lived near a beach. :9
