I love the name of Sassy Glass's shop!! She's been creating handmade artisan jewelry for many years using various types of beads, findings, natural stones, gemstones, and high quality metals. She's now discovered metalsmithing, and together with her machinist husband, have combined skills that have resulted in some of the fabulous pieces you see in her shop.
Because they work with original concepts and raw materials, no design is impossible. She loves custom orders (beads or jewelry), and invites new ideas or even duplicates of something in her shop, (including sold items) for those who want something in a different color or design.
She also makes lampwork beads for sale in her other shop at: http://www.sassyglassdesigns.etsy.com/
Once again, it's been difficult to choose just one item, but I've settled on a gorgeous pendant of yellow, gold, ivory, and green ocean jasper that reminds me of rare burl walnut!!
This gorgeous stone is bezel-set in fine silver, adorned with sterling balls, as well as a center flower set with a tiny citrine stone. The backplate is also sterling silver.
The pendant measures 1 1/2" wide x 1" high, and comes with a sterling snake chain. I find this an incredible bargain at $55.00!
