Wirework & Chain Jewelry Ideas
I was feeling summery and wanted to make something to suit my mood. I came up with this bracelet which is made of vintage Lucite flower charms in various pastel shades. The charms are wire wrapped onto a silver plated chain. I have finished the bracelet with a classic silver plated heart toggle clasp.
These beautiful carved mother of pearl flowers needed some color in my eyes. So I have added a chain which I have embellished with fuschia-dyed mother of pearl round beads and olivine-dyed mother of pearl drop beads which I turned upside down to represent leaves. Now I have a pair of beautiful, flirty summer inspired […]
I like combining steampunk elements, such as gears and chain, with my own flair to create something unique. This necklace measures 18 inches and combines gold plated chain, copper rounds, silver plated rounds, copper Swarovski crystals, and metal gears in shades of antiqued gold, pewter, and copper. The gears are connected with jump rings in […]
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.
This necklace consists of blue translucent glass stones fixed in silver plated wire. I wove the wire around the stone to create a snail shape. The lace that forms the top part of the necklace is a spiral chainmaille technique using silver plated chains. The pendant was woven and the stone is caged in the […]
I created this silver metal clay necklace to intentionally be charmy and have tons of movement when worn. I attached silver clay rings and random clusters of brown glass pearls and crystal beads to a sterling silver cable chain which I then anchored to a color-coordinated leather cord to make the necklace a little more […]
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 […]
I created this piece a few months ago, but it was only half-finished. I knew I wanted to make an anklet from the daisy chainmail weave. It’s just so beautiful that I knew it would look great on an ankle. After using my 16 gauge sterling silver, I got the basic length of the anklet, […]
This necklace is made using high polished silver chain and rubber coated satin red beads that I wire wrapped using silver hypo wire. I used silver jump rings to secure the beads onto the chain. I used a sivertone toggle clap as the closure for the necklace. The silver and red satin colored beads warms […]
This necklace is constructed of glass beads on individual shaped wire. Each bead is then attached to a small section of silver chain with jump rings. This length of chain is attached to a wire wrapped bead that slides onto a chain. The clasp, which is not shown, is a simple S-hook. Most of these […]
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 […]
I love working with wire, so in this piece I focused mainly on giving wire a different and modern shape. To make the pendants, I used gold tone wire and combined it with a 12 mm black glass bead. I strung one on an 18 inch gold plated ball chain for the necklace, and attached […]
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 […]
Pamela Bruce wire-wrapped individual spiral-shaped shell pieces and burgundy-dyed freshwater pearls together with sterling silver wire to a sterling silver chain. What inspired her to create this bracelet is that she liked the way the shells looked, especially their color combination of browns, burgundies, pinks, beiges, and greens. She found the burgundy-dyed freshwater pearls to […]
Fall is so full of wonderful rich colors. And as you know I love leaves! So this is my way of capturing those colors in this fall inspired pair of earrings. The leaf charms are antiqued gold color with freshwater pearls in various sizes and rich autumn colors. They dangle from a gold petite chain […]
I love wire work. I created this piece from leftover bits and pieces I had here and there: washers from my husband’s shed, buttons from my needlework box, charms from previous projects. I first created the base by making a loop and wrapping the loop on a metal washer and making another loop on the […]
I used wire wrapping in the construction of this pendant. I started by shaping the wire in a swirl shape and then started attaching the beads to it using freshwater creme pearls and 6mm purple bicone beads. Then, I finished it by a wire wrapped purple briolette. A silver tone chain is attached.
