My Jewelry in Mount Dora, Florida

My jewelry will be available for sale at the Gatehouse Gift Gallery in Mount Dora, Florida.  This review on TripAdvisor sums it up pretty well:

This gift shop is in one of the buildings of the Lakeside Inn, a historic hotel (1883) in Mt. Dora, Florida. The shop is nicely set up and laid back like you'd expect in this small town that looks more New England than Florida. It features items (even books written by) local artists and crafters. There's always lots of new things to see and of course buy and if you get tired there's a rocker on the front porch. Oh and if the proprietor offers you a taste of the chocolate wine be careful cause if you're like me you'll buy some and then come back for more.

Here's a link and photos:

Sleeping Beauty Turquoise

This strand of graduated Sleeping Beauty turquoise was so beautiful on its own, I hesitated to add anything to it so merely slipped tiny sterling silver balls in between making an interesting pattern but not detracting from the little beauties. This turquoise was also purchased from Szarka.

Showing off Szarka's Turquoise

Here is a chunky turquoise nugget necklace I made that also includes a few nice red coral chunks and some sponge coral rondelles. There are also silver Greek ceramic beads, Bali spacers and a wonderful huge sterling silver starfish from the Hill Tribes. If you're looking for real turquoise from an honest seller (and an all-around nice person), you can't beat can find her ebay auctions and her store, Turquoise Magpie, at . The sponge coral is also from Szarka.
