Barbara Bixby Sterling/18K Gemstone Grasshopper Enhancer
Best ever Purchase
I can only say this peice from Barbara is the most enduring peice of jewelry that I own.
It speaks to me each time I wear it. Not only from what I can see but the way it feels when I touch the grasshopper.There is something magical about this creation and I adore and love it.
I hesitate to wear it sometines because it draws attention..
I truely have people come up to me and grab it while it is on my neck.
They always apologize but want to know all about it and where they can find this peice of art.
Thank you Barbara. I also purchased the ring but wear the items separately.
TO much activity if I wear them together. P.S. MY GRASSHOPPER GLOWS is there a light in mine / Only kidding but it does appear to be glowing.
The Worst Pendant
I cannot believe this designer has the nerve to charge almost $500 including tax and s/h, for this item! I was appalled. I didn't even try it on, it's going back. I wouldn't pay $50 for this at a flea market. There is nothing special here at all, are you kidding me?????? And no designer box or info just a plain qvc box. for this price it should come in a fancy jewelry box. Never again will i purchase anything of hers. What a tremendous waste of money.
Not What I Had Hoped
The packaging was a downer! This came in the generic green and white box. Did you run out of the usually beautiful tan boxes with the brocade pouch? As I examined the enhancer, I could see that the gold flower at his throat was a bit off center. I thought long and hard to keep the grasshopper, for he is beautiful, and quite large; but I returned it. I have other beautiful Barbara Bixby pieces that I can wear and enjoy.
I just received my grasshopper and he is just as beautiful in person as on air. He is larger than I thought he would be and can't wait to wear him. Mine did come in Barbara Bixby's signature pouch and box and I can understand why some are upset over paying this price and getting a generic box. Love this little guy!!!
This enhancer is a nice size however the body of the piece was somewhat dull and was not what I had hoped for...would have preferred to have paid more for an actual gem vs. an overlay for the grasshopper body...sorry but had to return based on this criteria...hopefully the next Bixby creation will "fit the bill"!
I too received this today and received in a QVC box and I also thought that it must be a return. For the price of this enhancer it should be in a better box. I wanted to give as gift to someone who loves her jewelry but there is no indication that she made it. Other jewelery makers, Dawkins & Ripka have lovely boxes. Get on the ball QVC, I will be returning item.
Clearly it's a return...but still a cute hopper
This came today in a QVC white and teal box ... this is how I know it's a return and a "As is " would of been appropriate. He was very black so I got out the polishing cloth and it is coming off... his little head is not too purple but the green of the body is very nice. I'm not sure if this is a keeper.... but I'll hang out with him and see if I fall for him
Stunning and Distinctive
What more needs to be said? A beautiful statement necklace.
Worth every penny!
I was on the fence over this piece for over a year! I am glad that I ordered it! It looks just like the photo, not as brilliant as in the video, but studio lighting! If I let light reflect on it is every bit as brilliant. The detail is amazing. I have the original Barbara Bixby Bee and plan on wearing my insects together on a long chain.
I was concerned that due to the size it would look "cheap", but it is really a very elegant looking item.
One of my favorite pieces
The longer I have this piece the more I adore it. So beautiful and unique! People constantly comment on it....especially men! If you are on the fence, order it!
This piece is charming and unique! My husband likes to quote 'Patience, young grasshopper' when he sees it on me. We were out with friends and they were amused and surprised at close inspection.
The Green of the Limon Quartz/Dyed Mother of Pearl is not as deep or as saturated as it appears in the QVC video, where Lisa is wearing it. The color is paler...however, I still love this pendant and think of it as one of my signature pieces of jewelry.
Love this guy! Mine came today, and it is more than I expected. I saw a presentation with Lisa and Barbara. The story of the grasshopper that Barbara told is the reason I bought it.
I live in Illinois for the winter, and Mass. for the summer. Well, I got here 2 years ago, and sure enough there was a hurricane. The one that Barbara made reference of. I have never been through a hurricane, this was my first. Tornadoes yes, but not hurricanes. I will never forget it. I stayed in my summer cottage through the entire storm. Lost power for days, but, endured. So, when Barbara said she saw a grasshopper by her generator, and knew she could make it to the QVC studio because she was presenting him as this enhancer. I knew that I had to have him.
I will remember that hurricane each and every time I wear him. He is absolutely stunning!
He is such a story teller!
