Jet of the Day: Superior Stones

Back with Smacky! Earlier in the week I told you about Silver Smack, and  our lovely JET, Dara. I wrote briefly about her other store on Etsy.com and here we are today with a feature on Superior Stones, our Jet of the Day.

Wine Beach Stone and Pearl Knotted Dangle-Pendant Necklace
Since she was a little girl, Dara has combed the shores of Black River Harbor and Little Girl's Point in Michigan's Upper Peninsula looking for agates, interesting stones, and beach glass. Now,that she is a jewelry artist, she synthesizes that beauty and wonder into unique and eye-catching, one of a kind necklaces and pendants 

Brown Beach Glass Chrome Diopside Pendant




 Each of these lovely stone and glass pendants have been kissed by the waters of Lake Superior and hand chosen by Dara and further enhanced with fresh water pearls or semi-precious gemstones.






If not kissed by Lake Superior, the pendants in Superior Stones have been kissed by Mother Nature. Every piece is a spectacular, organic phenomenon.
Brown and Cream Swirl Carved Bone Necklace




For this Werewolf claw, Dara had to tackle the Werewolf herself, and cut his claw with her flush cutters. Well, I may have embellished a bit here. But suffice it to say, the handmade necklaces and pendants in this Etsy shop have great meaning to their maker, Dara. She worked very closely with her partner, Mother Nature on each lovely piece.

To see the whole collection of handmade, organic, stones and glass jewels from Lake Superior, or other necklaces with focal pendants straight from nature, please visit Superior Stones. And do not forget Dara's hallmark shop, Silver Smack wherein you will find lovely hand forged silver, copper, and brass, necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings.

Thank you for reading,
