As I have mentioned in previous posts sharing my favorite jewelry artisans I like wearing earrings. They are one of the easiest ways to dress up a little without going overboard. One of my favorite artists for making colorful gemstone earrings is Vicki Potter from Orion Designs. Her designs are joyful and fun.
Colorful Gemstone Earrings and More
Vicki’s shop offers a wide array of beautiful earrings in an array of gemstones and pearls. You will find all kind of color and sparkle! Every outfit in your wardrobe will be able to be paired with a pair of sparkly earrings.
How about these pretties? Gorgeous rutilated quartz with carnelian. Aren’t they pretty? I love rutilated quartz – so much going on in those stones and each one is unique. The black is as striking as golden rutilated quartz.
Vicki also makes lovely gemstone necklaces that are perfect for the office or for out to a party. Her designs feature quality gemstones in striking color pairings as well as classics like pearls.
Earrings to Dress Up or Dress Down
What I love about having a substantial earring wardrobe is that a pretty pair of earrings can dress up or dress down your outfit but still add a lot of sparkle to your day. They can add some color close to your face not to mention draw attention up. The beauty of gemstone earrings is they don’t have to be ornate to just let the gem do its work and shine. Vicki chooses high quality stones so they sparkle and shine.
Gemstone Necklaces Too
I’ve had Vicki make me three different necklaces, all in stunning gemstones and in completely different styles. I wear them all the time and I am always getting compliments. The one you see above is a sad photo because the stones are black opal and they look really flat. They are a gem that need light to show their glory. There is a lot of red flash when the sun or a light dances over the stones. This is a really versatile necklace and I do wear it quite often.
The first piece she made for me was a gorgeous boulder opal with Australian opal accents. Obviously I have a thing for all the varieties of opal out there. It’s the colorplay in the light that does it for me. Vicki did such a wonderful job with this piece and it’s another favorite.
This last necklace is a rutilated quartz topped by a rainbow of tiny gemstones in a rainbow of colors. The quartz is of particularly high quality and I love that it goes with everything.
Vicki is easy to work with and she has a wide and beautiful variety of gemstone and pearl earrings from which to choose. You will also find an array of necklaces to delight you. If you need to find a gift I am sure you will be able find just what you need.
