Brass Circles Necklace
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 […]
Denim Blues Necklace
Love these big porcelain pendants–this beautiful faded edge one reminds me of faded jeans. It sits well with some simple lampwork beads and a chunky chain. I wire wrapped the opaque indigo glass lampwork beads and combined them with a steel textured oval chain, metallic seed beads, a textured porcelain pendant, and a hook closure.
Royal Renaissance Necklace
I was an avid fan of HBOs “The Tudors” and never missed an episode. Besides being entertaining (if not 100% historically correct) I loved the costumes and jewelry. I created this piece from wire shaped into small, medium, and large flower bases then added seed and vintage/new beads to each flower. I worked on this […]
Autumn Flower Necklace
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 […]
Copper, Wood & Bali Bead Ornate Pendant
The focal drop is a hand crafted lampwork bead that is clear with a copper swirl lining. The necklace includes dark wood round beads, Czech faceted smokey brown beads and some silver coloured metal Bali-like beads, bead caps and hanger to finish. The seed beads are clear dark brown and the bugle beads are metallic […]
This choker is Turkish and consists of spirals of wire, seed beads, and cloth.
Theatre Memory Wire Necklace
This necklace consists of memory wire, seed beeds, small Swarowski beads, and pendants.
White And Green Coil Beads Necklace
I just purchased a coil gizmo, and went a little overboard creating coils. I knew I wanted to make a tiered or layer necklace, what I described to myself as a collar. I wanted each layer to more simple as the layers got smaller. The coils are a pristine white, the large beads are silver […]
This choker is Turkish and consists of large seed beads strung on heavy wire that holds its shape.
Lucky Dice Necklace
This was the very first piece of proper jewellery I made. It was made for a friend who has her lucky number tattooed on her back in the form of two dice. I made it as a gift for her to celebrate her pregnancy. I used plated silver chain, head pins, eye pins, glass seed […]
Green With Envy Necklace
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, […]
Blue And Green Shell Pendant
This set uses silver plated chain attached with jump rings to a beaded section that consists of green shell beads and 4mm blue rice pearls. The shell pendant is attached on the wire by a heavy gauge jump ring. The earrings are on lever back posts with a rice pearl attached by a jump ring […]
Sun Goddess Necklace
I wove a freshwater pearl with golden seed beads to create a rose feature. I used strong fireline to weave the seed beads around the freshwater pearl. I made a circle with the seed beads and then wove the pearl on, then working in rounds I added the petals. Around the rose sit clusters of […]
Good Juju Wire Wrapped Collar
This piece was inspired by a friend’s Kenyan necklace made of bone & horn. I loved the strong shapes and the way the horns tapered around the sides of the neck. My beaded version looks nothing like hers, but it captures a similar earthy, bold feeling. I made frames with 20 gauge sterling plated copper […]
