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 […]
Starting from a design for ‘wiggly’ chain by Linda Jones, this was inspired by the Scribble Bark gum tree which looks as if Koalas have been slip-sliding down the tree. Gold plate wire, with a green venetian-style glass bead and two little clear Swarovski crystals. The ends of the fine leather thong are bound in […]
I named this necklace “Adira”. It’s Hebrew and means: majestic, mighty and strong. I hand forged copper wire to create the intricate framework. I took more copper wire to create the ornate wirework. The focal point of the necklace is the wirewrapped 15x14mm jet black Swarovski crystal. The necklace also has smaller jet black, siam […]
These earrings are crafted from up-cycled leather and fabric. I used stainless steel links to create a chain maille drop. Stainless steel is a hypoallergenic metal and gradually gleams with wear. The black beads are glass. For findings I use leverback hooks which are perfect for stretched ears as they secure tightly.
This necklace was made from 18 gauge copper wire. I randomly shaped the wire into a design I liked. I added a few copper beads to the wire. I then hammered the copper in a few places, mostly on the curves, to add character. I finished the piece by attaching it to leather cord.
Purple is one of my husband’s favorite colors and animal print is one my weaknesses. So accidentally dropping a dyed hammer-shell bead next to a piece of purple leather in my workroom made me think the two were meant to marry! I accented zebra print shells, mother-of-pearl nugget shells and hand-cut leather with multi-shaped black […]
This piece is made with navy blue goat leather (roll and circles) golden wood, resin and chain. I tried to make something very modern and different and the result was amazing. I loved it. I showed it in a Art Fair and it was a success. I sold it as the first place. The colour […]
This set came to be because of a wedding commission. I wanted to practice the tiara with copper before going with silver, and then decided it would make a great choker! The stones are Turquoise briolettes that I wired together as flowers with a Mookaite center. The leaf accents are also Mookaite. I used multiple […]
This bracelet is an African opal bracelet with Czech crystal bi-cone flirts. How to make it: Cut two pieces of leather cord about 1 1/2″ shorter than you want it to be to allow for the focal bead and the clasp. I used a heavier 20 gauge half hard sterling silver wire, and did a […]
