Beads hand-crafted from onyx, buri root and porcelain. Handmade in Florida. Due to the natural nature of the materials and because this item is handmade, each is one-of-a-kind and may vary.

Lori Strickland

Lori Strickland

A native Floridian, Lori Strickland comes from a long line of ranchers and cowboys-"Old Florida," she calls it. "Before the mouse took over." Lori trained at the Gemology Institute of America and The Jeweler's Bench of Florida. While she was studying to become a designer, she met her husband, who was studying to become a manufacturer.

"We have the perfect relationship in many ways," Lori says. "Every designer needs a manufacturer and every manufacturer needs a designer."

The Stricklands have worked together for 15 years and have a 10-year-old daughter, who has designed jewelry and made wax models since she was six. She's even designing something to be featured in Lori's next collection. "We are a true family business," she says.

"My inspiration comes from the world around me. I tend to see things from a different angle than most people. I enjoy the irony and romance of life. Plain objects seem whimsical and I see things like the cork in the dog or flowers and plants that dance like ballerinas."

When she isn't busy with jewelry, Lori is taking her daughter to voice lessons or barefoot skiing when the weather is nice. The family also enjoys walking on the beach, surf fishing and playing with their two dachshunds.

        This is such a cool necklace. For dress-up, put the frog in the back. For a fun, casual look, wear the frog clasp in the front. Beautiful craftsmanship!

          It's actually very cute, but the clasp looks rather odd.

          Just beautiful and excellent price.

          Great frog clasp!

          How long? How short? Can the horizontal piece of the clasp be made to resemble something like a dragonfly? Or another frog? Otherwise, the tab of the connector just looks like a tab.

          I really don't like frogs but I love the beads and the price is right.

          Would rather see sterling instead of pewter. This seems a bit outdated to me.

          I guess I don't know where the $48 comes in. Maybe it's because I'm not a big frog wearer...?

          Cute and uncommon!

          Really weird looking clasp and looks like a choker style.

          Interesting detail makes a neckless like this more appealing.

          Beautiful. I'm adding it to my "wish list."

          Would be great for frog lovers, though I'm not. Very creative and unique.

          Why not just use the frog's arms as the clasp, instead of having him hold the clasp in his hands (it looks like he's playing horseshoes).Very pretty and whimsical nonetheless. (I really like the colors of the necklace.)

          little costly for pewter

          Vote: Thumbs up!

          I love that the clasp is part of the necklace, instead of just a hook in the back!

          it just sort of everyday or common

          cute frog/ clasp, but not THAT cute/ unique as i make beaded jewelry and this looks too much like something i could easily make.

          I wouldn't wear it myself, but it would make a great gift.
