|Ankle bracelet constructed with a wire wrapped shark tooth, pearls, amethyst, and apatite stones.|
For the second installment of Gems & Jewels (view the first here) I wanted to showcase some of my latest creations. I always get so much enjoyment out of working with natural elements like shark teeth, amethyst, and tourmalated quartz to put together different sparkly earrings or necklaces. I especially loved the shark tooth ankle bracelet paired with all those lovely tattoos as a backdrop! Which is your favorite piece?

|Tourmalated quartz is a gem that can never be created synthetically. I love that each piece is unique and different.|
|The quartz points in this necklace have been treated with titanium to |
create that metallic tone. I thought that the finish of faceted pyrite and hematite chips paired well with the quartz.
