Smokey Quartz Earrings and Necklace

Here's an earring and necklace set made for a woman I work with. She had gotten these three brown stones free in St Martin at one of their jewelry stores. I'm going to say they are smokey quartz but I'm not totally sure. She has already purchased a smokey quartz and goldfilled wire ring from me and wanted some jewelry to go with it. I thought I would use brass wire to keep costs down so instead of making earrings and a pendant, I incorporated the stone into a whole necklace. As an accent color I used some Aquamarine Swarovski crystals. Here is what I came up with and I'm hoping she likes it! She hasn't seen them yet.

Hammer Silver Ring and Leather Necklace

I finally got around to getting the torch out again this summer inbetween baseball ending and school starting. I fused fine silver rings together and hammered them out flat and gave them texture. I thought leather would go great with the silver so I made one in brown and one in black. I just love this design that I think I'm going to keep one for myself !
