Summer Garden Bracelet
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.
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 […]
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 […]
The unique focal bead was the inspiration for this bracelet. I made a double eye-pin out of 18 gauge wire and attached it to two separate lengths of gold chain. I wanted to make the charms out of interesting beads I had in my collection, and I also wanted those beads to bring out the […]
Futuristic Jewelry Set
I love wirework, and this piece is designed using simple wire wrapping techniques. You can make this with seed beads as the base or just chain. I made mine with Swarovski bicone size 6 in clear. I then made the dangles with Bali silver beads, pearls in grey and recycled glass beads I made from […]
Dragonscale Chain Mail Bracelet
I wanted to make a heavy and bold bracelet and the Dragonscale design was the perfect idea. It is handmade in Argentium sterling silver, with a sterling silver tube slide clasp. Approximately 7/8″ wide, it weighs 2.74 ounces.
I Have Got The Blues Bracelet
Blue and green stones helped me create the name of this piece. I strung each bead section onto brass wire and did a simple loop to close each end. Each beaded wire section was attached to brass jump-rings. The focal is the brass filigree ring that I attached to the bracelet by wrapping both sides […]
Goldie’s Garden Bracelet
I often get requests for birthday bracelets. I use the stones that correspond to the birth month and the individuals astrological sign. This piece was inspired by my girlfriends mother “Goldie” who is a lovely, lively, bubbly and happy go lucky lady! I used 24 gauge silver wire to string smokey quartz beads and a […]
Chain Strands Bracelet
In this piece, I worked with chains to create a modern, contemporary look. I started by attaching round, square, and oval antique silver charms to a shiny silver chain, then repeated the steps creating four strands. I finished the bracelet with a toggle clasp.
Confetti Cluster Bracelet
This bracelet is very time consuming but very worth it. I started with a link bracelet (chain) with a clasp at one end. You can add jump rings to the other end to lengthen. You thread an headpin with a bicone and attach it to a link. Each link will take up to eight 4mm […]
Black & Silver Charrm Bracelet
The insperation for this bracelet came from me not really liking frilly things, like charm bracelets. This bracelet, made with large acrylic beads connected with 2 chain-links filled with small charms, was the solution to my problem.
Orbital Rings Wire Wrapped Bracelet
I have wire wrapped some freshwater pearls in lime and spruce to this antiqued silver large round link chain. I have added some 4mm filigree antique silver beads as well for two reasons. One for a decorative touch and second to fill in the gap as the pearls were too small.
Alluring Heart Cluster Bracelet
I used 6mm hematite hearts, Japanese pink square beads and pink E beads. To attach these beads I used head and eye pins. I chose faceted black chain and plain pink chain to contrast the colours of the bracelet. Finally I finished the piece using a lobster claw clasp. I simply felt in a creative […]
Northern Lights Bracelet Set
This colorful and playful bracelet/earring set was made using glass beads of various colors and, using eye pins, round jump rings and square jump rings, attaching them to a silver chain. Fun, bright and cheery!
This piece is made of natural, non-viable seeds from the Amazon, fresh water pearls, sterling silver charms, chain and findings. The seeds are attached with head pins to a thick chain to form this unique charm bracelet. Inspired by the Guarasavusu bird of the Amazon rainforest that has brown, yellow, and white feathers.

Byzantine Chain Mail Bracelet

Amber Charm Bracelet
This was one of the first pieces of jewellery I ever made. I had a pretty shell heart piece that I wanted to base my bracelet around and went from there. Using a variety of glass beads in amber, gold and brown shades I created a charm bracelet on antique chain. This is one of […]
My inspiration was exotic rock star glam. I love creating pieces that easily transition from day to evening. Being glamorous all day can be easy with great transitional pieces. I used 14kt gold-filled wire and textured chains to create this piece. For added detail and contrast, I introduced sterling silver textured chains. I also used […]
