FAQ: Jewelry on Buffy, the Vampire Slayer Season 6 Part I

So excited for Sarah Michelle Gellar's new TV show, Ringer, which premieres in September! It's got me thinking about the exciting days when I would watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer on TV every week, hoping to see my jewelry worn by the cast. I was never more thrilled than seeing Sarah Michelle Gellar wearing one of my floating crystal chokers!

The fun continued during season 6 where my jewelry designs were worn by Alyson Hannigan, Michelle Trachtenberg, Amber Benson and more. This post is part I of the jewelry pieces featured on Buffy, then check out post Part II!

Season 6 season premiere episode "Beginnings" was certainly the beginning; this episode gave us hints of Dark Willow to come. Here, Alyson Hannigan as Willow wears a blue chalcedony necklace on sterling silver chain (right before dispatching an innocent fawn).

I loved this handmade necklace I created that featured round amber beads and a red carnelian pendant. The small round beads in amber (fossilized tree sap!) were truly a unique find. I bought all I could find and have never seen them again! Willow wore this necklace a few times during the season.

In this episode, "Life Serial", Willow wears one of my most popular jewelry designs of the time, a hand knotted silk necklace featuring a mix of semiprecious stones. This necklace has amethyst, garnets and carnelians. I also offered this design in a silk bracelet that a customer recently asked me about. Maybe I will bring it back? Thoughts?

More Willow! Here, in the episode "All the Way", Alyson Hannigan wears a necklace I created featuring a vintage glass pendant that I wire-wrapped and matched with a leather cord.

The lovely Amber Benson as love interest Tara also wore some of my jewelry designs. Here, in Buffy episode "Smashed", she wears tourmaline earrings and a matching handmade tourmaline necklace that has a vintage amber pendant.

When I started making jewelry, I was always drawn to unusual stones and pendants, often using vintage components. Many of the necklaces and earrings were one-of-a-kind and such a pleasure to make. It was even more amazing to see these pieces being used on a hit TV show! As my business grew, I had to think about creating pieces that more than one person could enjoy. But that doesn't mean I don't still make one of a kind pieces, or work on custom jewelry designs for my customers.
