Green Stone Memory Wire Bracelet
I had gone to a gem shop and found these wonderful stone beads that I thought would make great focal beads for a bracelet. I used memory wire.I mixed different fire polished beads and crystals and a few spacers. I loved the color combinations. The end beads are glued on as I do not like […]
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.
This scorpion is made entirely of beads, wire, and findings. Lobster-claw clasps are used for the tail and pincers.
This earring is made of gold tone nontarnishable wire. I started by shaping the wire in a teardrop shape to make petals. I made four petals overlapping each other, creating a flower shape. Then I attached a green stone teardrop to each flower and a gold hook at the top to finish the earrings. Love […]
I had the idea to make this pendant as the old counting frame design offers lots of possibilities to personalize a piece of jewelry. The gemstones can be chosen to make the most out of the color combination or emphasize a single color but also to display birthstones of a family or group. It’s a […]
Swirly Zigzag Pendant
In my jewelry creations, I like to mainly use wire, as I love creating different styles, colors and textures with it. In this piece I used 16 gauge silver plated wire. I shaped it in a swirl and zigzag shape, then started hammering it to give it a different texture. After that I started attaching […]
Desert Jasper Wheel Of Infinity Pendant
For this pendant I hand-form the frame with thick copper wire. I then wire wrap the frame with very thin copper wire while attaching tiny, 2mm copper beads at certain intervals. I wanted to use the very popular gemstone donuts but create a more elaborate look. I call these type of pendants “wheel of infinity” […]
I started this piece by shaping a piece of 16 gauge silver plated wire into an S-shape; then I started hammering it, creating a different texture. I then used two pieces of wire by twisting them together, then wrapping them around the S-shape wire. At last I started attaching the leaf shaped charms and a […]
Wire Jig Necklace
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 […]

Wire Wrapped Swarovski Crystal Ring
This adjustable wire wrapped ring is made with aqua Swarovski crystals and non-tarnish artistic wire. This ring can fit any size. I loved making this ring; it was easy but challenging at the same time. You have to make sure that you turn it the right way.
Sterling Silver Wire Heart Pendant With Garnets
I made this piece using sterling silver wire, faceted garnets, Swarovski crystal bicones, and round sterling silver beads. The pendant itself is two separate components woven together in order to create the single piece seen in the design. I wanted to use a lot of bold red and love these little pieces of garnet. Also […]

This piece was made with solid copper wire. First the thicker wire for the frame was cut, the ends were heated with a torch to get the little dots. It was then pickled in acid, formed and tumble polished. The amazonite, apatite, Swarovski crystal and copper bead were attached with very thin copper wire. The […]
Sodalite Swirl Earrings
To create these earrings I shaped 18 gauge wire into a swirl. Then I hammered the silver to give texture. Then I used a headpin to attach sodalite nugget beads. I attached a closed jump ring to the swirl & used a sterling fishhook earring finding. Sodalite is the stone of endurance.
This necklace consists of silver plated wire in two sizes and red glass Jablonec pearls. The thinner size wire is wrapped and interwoven with the larger wire and was used to attach the pearls and create the Viking-style weave at the back of the necklace.
Everyday Fun Earrings

I started with the super cute rectangular sterling silver beads and added iridescent faceted black glass beads to the top and bottom. I strung them all together with a piece of Argentine half hard sterling silver wire and attached […]
Crocheted Wire and Pearl Bracelet
For this piece I crocheted 28 gauge non-tarnish silver Artistic Wire with keshi pearls around the edges. I love the challenge of turning a hard material such as wire into soft and feminine pieces, as it is so unexpected. When I see people put them on and be amazed at how soft and touchable they […]

This pendant was constructed of gold filled wire and fresh water pearls. I started this as an exercise in learning. I was following a tutorial written by Eni on the Beaded Bail. I decided to follow through using an undrilled sea shell that I’ve had for some time. First I had to drill a hole. […]
