Iris Elm Jewelry Newest Additions: August 27 - September 9

Hello! As September begins, here is the latest additions over the past couple of weeks to the website:

I love labradorite! It is probably my favorite gemstone with its beautiful iridescence that changes depending on how the light hits it. With this bracelet, I decided to showcase the pretty gem by weaving small labradorite beads between grey and silver glass seed bead beadwork. The bracelet closes with a sterling silver lobster claw clasp.

 

This design reminds me of earrings someone might wear in the 1920's or 30's or even the earlier Victorian era. They are classic, small and lightweight and beaded with faceted Czech glass fire-polished beads.. This latest pair comes in bronze and translucent blue, though I also have them available in Dark Hematite Grey as well as Bronze and Green.

 

Beautiful tiny purple flowers from my garden were pressed and dried then sprinkled in resin for this vintage inspired necklace that is perfect for any flower lover.

 

To go along with the labradorite bracelet above, I made these beadwork earrings with gorgeous labradorite that have a lot of flash that I bought locally. They are small and eye-catching and dangle from my handcrafted sterling silver ear wires.
