Leigh Necklace

A beautiful 3/4" round green amethyst in a brilliant checkerboard cut is paired with a rich purple amethyst in this handcrafted Sterling silver pendant. It measures 1-3/8" in total length and is strung on a 16-1/2" necklace of white cultured potato pearls. It closes with a sweet heart toggle clasp. This necklace is the perfect size to dress up the neckline of a simple blouse.

About Us


Hello and welcome to Holly Cottage! I'm Judith Rudolph and I design all the jewelry you see in my store.

My newest line features gemstones set in handcrafted Sterling Silver pendants. They adorn necklaces that I create with pearls, silver and gemstone beads to complement each pendant. Most are one-of-a-kind. In some cases I may be able to make something similar if you take a fancy to a piece that has already sold. Just ask. I do love to spoil my customers!

Many of my jewelry designs feature fine lampwork glass beads hand crafted by independent artistans. I love working with them because it feels good to support their businesses but especially because the lampwork beads they produce are the best you can get anywhere. The creativity, hand detailing, and high quality they offer is truly without equal. 

Like many creative people I'm forever finding fresh inspiration, so you will always find something new and different at Holly Cottage Designs. I use only high quality components and take great care with every detail in designing and crafting each piece. My goal is for you to be even more pleased with your choice when you receive it than when you saw it on your computer monitor!

There is an actual Holly Cottage where I create my jewelry. It's located on the beautiful coast of Maine and is home to myself, my husband, and our four pampered pets, including Bridget, my office assistant.

Zoe Necklace

A big, bold look!
I created the unusual pendant with beads from polymer clay artist Rebecca Watkins, who is also a graphic designer. Rebecca's gorgeous, one-of-a-kind beads are truly works of art. I combined two of them to form the pendant and strung it on a 20" necklace of large AA quality black onyx beads.

                                  Surf Bracelet

A walk along the coast on a stormy day inspired me to create this bracelet. I wove together hundreds of tiny beads in shades of Atlantic ocean blue and pearly white to mimic the rolling surf. A pair of frolicking dolphins on a Sterling silver toggle secures the bracelet, which is 7" in length and comfortably fits up to a 6-1/2" wrist.
