This earring is made of gold tone nontarnishable wire. I started by shaping the wire in a teardrop shape to make petals. I made four petals overlapping each other, creating a flower shape. Then I attached a green stone teardrop to each flower and a gold hook at the top to finish the earrings. Love […]

For this pendant I hand-form the frame with thick copper wire. I then wire wrap the frame with very thin copper wire while attaching tiny, 2mm copper beads at certain intervals. I wanted to use the very popular gemstone donuts but create a more elaborate look. I call these type of pendants “wheel of infinity” […]
This piece was made with solid copper wire. First the thicker wire for the frame was cut, the ends were heated with a torch to get the little dots. It was then pickled in acid, formed and tumble polished. The amazonite, apatite, Swarovski crystal and copper bead were attached with very thin copper wire. The […]
To create these earrings I shaped 18 gauge wire into a swirl. Then I hammered the silver to give texture. Then I used a headpin to attach sodalite nugget beads. I attached a closed jump ring to the swirl & used a sterling fishhook earring finding. Sodalite is the stone of endurance.

There are situations where nothing but a heart will do. They are one of the most understood symbols of affection and very well liked as jewelry pieces. I set out to make a heart out of wire by hand forming the two pieces, then hammering them and finally wire wrapping them together. I then added […]
My grandmother had given me a wooden bead necklace that had crazy safari animals on it along with these cool wooden beads in green and black. I took it apart and began to play with the wooden disks. I had purchased the triangle of bloodstone about a year ago and it was waiting for a […]
The main materials used in this unique bracelet is 8 mm turquoise magnesite stones and bronze leather cord. I started by using the leather cord, making two strands, then I started weaving the stones between the two strand cord so that the bracelet will be wrapped three times around the wrist. Finally, I attached a […]
I started with two pieces of 24 gauge silver plated wire and twisted them together. At various intervals I strung pearls and turquoise gemstones on one wire strand and twisted the other wire around them. I repeated this technique to create 5 strands, and then I tangled the strands together in a random way.

Using a thing-a-ma-jig I formed the earwires out of 18 gauge copper wire and filed the ends to make them smooth. I used the same 18 gauge wire through the 18mm square peacock stone to make the circle on the top and the swirl on the bottom. I bent the circle over the stone after […]
I love bold jewelry, not necessarily the big diamond bold jewelry, but more so stones and off beat beads. I took a more eco friendly and modern route with these earrings. The Nuts & Berries earrings took about an 1 1/2 hours to make to ensure the smoothness of the steel wire to hold the […]
