Doing the Twist

Fruity Anklet- $25.00
Pastel colored pearls, and faceted Czech rondelles, 9 ½” with 1 inch extender

Sweetirie was started in 2005 and the name came from the artist’s cat’s name which means Supreme Joy.

Bursting with pearls of all kinds, the passion for this kind of work is evident and many of the pieces incorporate various dangles painstakingly wrapped with sterling silver wire.

The ring below has wire that wraps around a large central pearl in a flowing way that creates the look of movement, swirling around it like waves following the contours of the beach.

Pearlized Ring- $9.00
8mm cream pearl, ring 6.5" but can be made to custom size

This design uses an interesting way of wrapping seven pearls together. This simple but very artsy shape creates a subtle taper which gets very gradually larger at the bottom. This slight shift away from the outline of the pearls adds extra interest to the piece and the whirlwind of wrapping at the top adds contrasting texture to the smooth lines of the rest of the piece

Teresa Silver Earrings- $22.00
Wire-wrapped pearls with non-tarnish sterling silver

Her Saturday Nite earrings use the same kind of simplicity and cleverness with a minimum of lost motion.

Saturday Nite Earrings- $22.00
Wire-wrapped Peacock Pearls
