Snow Quartz Crucifix

This child-sized necklace is 13" long, but extends to 17" for a lifetime of wear.  The petite 1" crucifix is a bronze replica of an antique piece, the beads are 4mm natural snow quartz, and the swallow and all other findings are Vintaj natural brass.  The set includes a matching 5.75"-7.75" bracelet and earrings.

White Pearl Lorraine Cross

This child-sized necklace is 13.25" long, made with white cultured pearls and stainless steel findings.  The Lorraine cross with thistles, commonly associated with St. Joan of Arc, is a sterling silver replica of an antique piece.  The set includes matching earrings, also stainless steel, and a 5.5" bracelet with a platinum-plated extension chain.

Additional extension chains could be added for adults who appreciate petite jewelry.

Hematite and Gunmetal Seven Sorrows

Hematite is one of my favorite mediums.  This is a double-strand necklace of 6mm hematite beads and 4mm gunmetal-plated beads strung on 24 gauge stainless steel wire with a platinum-plated spring clasp.  The shortest strand is 15" long.  The centerpiece is a sterling silver replica of an antique rosary centerpiece.  The reverse of the medal features the Sacred Heart.  The set includes a 7" bracelet and matching earrings on stainless steel half-ball studs.

Brass Chain Sacred Heart

This 15.5" necklace is made entirely out of Vintaj natural brass with 8mm mustang jasper beads and a bronze replica of an antique Sacred Heart medal.  It can extend to 18".   The set includes a 7"-8.75" bracelet and matching earrings.
