This necklace was, of course, inspired by the colors of the earth. Well actually, it was also inspired by my boss' apartment. He has splashes of earth colors in his apartment and his office room. He commissioned me to do a few pieces that he will use for one of his projects and this piece is one of them.

Semi-precious, Indian and plastic beads handcrafted to make this beautiful Earth necklace

I imagine a woman with a free spirit, roaming the earth, barefoot. She likes fashion that makes her feel herself, no pretensions. She wears whatever suits her fancy, whether day or night. She believes her soul is one with the earth. Love is the force that makes her world go round.

The Earth Necklace retails for Php499

Turquoise Poison

The first piece is Turquoise Poison:

The necklace is made up of semi-precious and Indian beads, linked together by golden wires.  

The piece was inspired by strong, edgy women who know what they want and do everything to get it. It reflects the strong will and desire of each woman. This woman is beautiful, seductive and mysterious. Men who seek her must tread very carefully.

Welcome to Street of Jewels

Welcome to Street of Jewels! I've been designing bead jewelry since I was 16. This hobby has seen me through tough years, paying for a portion of my tuition, school allowance, medical bills plus medicines and of course, shopping money! 

Over the years, my taste and (moods) have changed. These creations are lovingly handmade by yours truly. No two pieces are alike. You are assured of a one-of-a-kind piece when you own a piece of jewelry from La Rue des Bijoux, the Street of Jewels. 

Have a look around and see if something catches your fancy. Leave a comment if you want something to covet.
