This necklace was created using the Wire Wizard Deluxe Jig using a non-tarnish brass wire. A jig is a board with pegs in it that is useful for bending wire into specific shapes that can easily be replicated. They can be made out of wood or metal. Corrine’s jigs use metal pegs that you can […]
This piece was made as a commission for a colleague’s mother – the brief was that she has a young and carefree spirit and loves greens and browns. Materials include antique brass Vintaj pieces, unakite, moonstone, Czech and Indian glass and Swarovksi crystals and pearls, all combined with a gorgeous antique brass chain.
I made this necklace using ceramic focal beads from Earthenwood Studios. The light blues and yellows look amazing with the Vintaj brass. I made a simple chain using faceted chalcedony, and small blue ceramic rounds. I just simply strung the beads on looped wire, attaching them all together with jump-rings. I threw in a few […]
This necklace was made with all recycled vintage materials. I began making jewelry out of my Mom’s pieces after she passed, as gifts for family. Now I collect vintage pieces for my designs. This necklace consists of vintage glass beads with copper and brass components and chain. I love creating jewelry that’s is good for […]
For this necklace I wanted to do something in a more contemporary “boho chic” style with bright colors, so I combined an orange aventurine donut with turquoise blue Czech picasso beads and a pair of tumbled aventurine nuggets. To add to the chunky look and feel I used a heavy chain with large links. All […]
This has been a work in progress for a while – the links and pendant were a natural pairing – the strung portion took a while of thinking to find the right solution. The circles are brushed aged brass, and the transparent pendant bead and matching nugget beads are raku glass. The strung portion is […]
This necklace is mainly made from aventurine chips and dark and light 8mm round aventurine beads strung on wire and connected with simple wire loops. I completed the necklace with fine triple copper link chain and a brass lobster claw. The triple strands overlaps naturally when worn.
I have used a buttercup yellow rose and wire wrapped it along with some beige / latte coloured glass pearls. A little brass key and a flower also dangle from an antique brass hoop to complete the charms. I used antique brass cable chain and a heart lobster clasp to secure. I was inspired by […]
This necklace combines the colours of brass, cream and amethyst. For the chainmail part I used 8mm rings, putting some 6/0 seedbeads on them before closing them. On the bottom of the focal I worked with the seam measure rings. For the connection with the chain I kettled some Swarovski and other beads between the […]
This piece is made with antique brass, amazonite, smoky quartz and pearls. Blue and brown make a nice color combo, and amazonite and smoky quartz are two of my favorite gemstones, so I figured the two stones would look great in a necklace with a little bit of white thrown in somewhere. I took a […]
I used a Bronze Metal Clay pendant by Summers Studio, lengths of brass chain, and an assortment of Czech glass beads, leaves, and flowers. I wanted to make something airy, fun, and a little playful without it being too girly-girl. It can be worn with jeans and a t-shirt or a blouse and a long, […]
I made this necklace using a ceramic pendant that is handmade by RedCrowArts of Etsy. It is handstamped with a leafy pattern and glazed a beautiful green color. I paired this pendant with gorgeous fancy jasper disc beads, green spotty Czech glass, faceted glass rondelles, and teal blue glass petal beads. On the front of […]
This necklace uses a vintage brass floral locket as a pendant. The locket is wire wrapped to a mix of white freshwater pearls and faceted clear quartz. The stones are then connected to a medium weight gold filled cable chain. The necklace has an adjustable length of 19 to 21 inches, with a keishi pearl […]
I started out with the fabulous crystal agate druzy. To get together an interesting mix of complimenting gemstones, I chose different shapes, sizes, colors and textures of Prehnite, amethyst, garnet, apatite, citrine and peridot. The ‘backplate’ is a round shaped grid which offers options to fix the gemstones anywhere you like and is also solid […]
For this necklace I started with a serpentine (new jade) cabochon and put it under a large antique brass hoop. I used a piece of oxidized brass filigree as backing to hold it in place. For accent beads I used a few smaller matching serpentine jade beads and some flat oval beads made of frosted […]
This 21″ necklace is made using 16ga copper wire, some really nice matte glass beads, and some African trade beads from Ghana. The 4″ bone goddess hangs between two fluted brass beads. I like this necklace for it’s “earthy” feel. The African trade beads were acquired at a flea market where I came upon a […]
This necklace is one of the most creative pieces that I have made so far. I bought the resin focal bead at my local bead store because I knew the color would be amazing with the Vintaj Brass. I used small brass chain and paired it with a chain made of seed beads in lime, […]
I have wire wrapped this vintage style necklace with 5 mm round salmon bamboo coral beads and 8 mm round white shell beads into three strands using copper eye pins. One of the strands overlaps the other two strands. I finished it with a brass lobster claw. The length of the necklace is 18 inches.
I created this necklace using Vintaj Brass Co. chain. In a few spots around the chain, I attached wire-wrapped red Czech glass beads for accents. The focal I used is a pewter bird bead from Mamacita Beadworks. I used an eye pin, and off the bottom hook, dangled a brass wire nest that I stuffed […]
