Ice and Fire - Amber Rock Crystal Clear Quartz silver gold necklace and earrings set. Handmade fine jewelry by Arctida

I'm a huge fan of fantasy books so it's only natural that I get my inspiration from the books that I've read. So here is the set that was inspired by the *A Song of Ice and Fire* book series. The popular HBO TV-series *Game of Thrones* is based on these books.

A little bit about the jewelry pieces: the focal was made using Fine Silver Precious Metal Clay (PMC) and decorated with 24K gold foil using ancient technique called Keum-boo. The chain and the earrings were handcrafted using genuine Baltic Amber and Rock Crystal Clear Quartz beads wire wrapped in 14K gold filled, 18K Vermeil and Argentium sterling silver (High tarnish resistance).

Mosaic necklace – OOAK Fluorite Garnet Moonstone Pearls Pink Amethyst and Tanzanite necklace in sterling silver. Purple gemstone necklace by Arctida.

Lately, I've been playing a lot with so called mosaic gemstone necklace designs. I've made my first one back in 2009 as a present for a friend and I just realized that I've never shown it here on my blog. So here comes the first one in my mosaic necklace series with purple, lilac and violet gemstones and pearls in sterling silver.

Harmonia - Agate Citrine Peridot Prasiolite emerald green Quartz necklace in sterling silver and gold filled. Handmade gemstone jewelry by Arctida

Here is another set of custom orders that I have had a chance to photograph so that I can show them to you guys :) All of them are based on my original *Harmonia* necklace that I first made back 2010. The gems vary a little bit and so do the swirls as I make them by hand each time, but the basic Art Nouveau style design is there. The gems that I've used are: green Agate, Citrine, Peridot, Prasiolite (aka green Amethyst) and emerald green Quartz. The metals are both sterling silver and 14K gold filled.

Deira - Personalized jewelry Birthstone necklace Statement necklace. Handmade gemstone jewelry by Arctida

Back in 2008 I've made a long statement necklace with combination of 7 different gemstones for myself (Deira). In the beginning I wasn't planning to have this design for sale but I started to have custom request from friends and coworkers who've seen it and wanted their own version. Usually people would choose the Birthstones that would have a connection to their family-members or gemstones from some special event/place in their life. So I thought I'll show you some of those that I've had a chance to photograph :)

Mens jewelry Chainmaille mens bracelets in sterling silver Roundmaille wave. Mens fashion by Arctida

Here is another addition to my mens jewelry collection, this time I tried a new chainmaille wave called Roundmaille. It is thicker and more massive than all the other chainmaille waves I've tried so far but it is still a bracelet with clean lines and crisp, minimalistic look.
