Barbara Swinton of Touch of Silver
This gemstone charm bracelet is filled with color from the waters of the earth - aqua, blues, turquoise and abalone. Coin pearls and swarovski pearls represent the clouds blown by the wind, while fiery carnelian, red jasper and yellow jade create warmth in the piece.

Deborah Lambson of Deborah J Lambson
Earthy 'garden' style flame worked beads paired with copper and labradorite..such a beautiful stone originating in Labrador, Canada. 

Jo Pound of Jewelry by Jolane
My necklace represents all the elements to me. The earth is represented by the flowers growing or even the closure looks like earth. The water is all the aquas, blues and green. The daggers represent the clouds and the center piece represents fire.

JeriEllyn Holt Ross of Images By Jer
The leaves are fire in this tree grown from water and the earth. It cleanses the air around it.
