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.
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 […]
I started with two pieces of 24 gauge silver plated wire and twisted them together. At various intervals I strung pearls and turquoise gemstones on one wire strand and twisted the other wire around them. I repeated this technique to create 5 strands, and then I tangled the strands together in a random way.
This is a cuff style bracelet that was woven with silver plated wire and white glass pearls. First, I created a 20 gauge wire frame. Next, I wove in 3 sizes of glass pearls to create an impression of texture. A hook and eye closure finishes the piece. The look is gorgeous and opulent.
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 […]
This bracelet shows support of breast cancer victims and survivors with pink mother of pearl beads accented with clear Swarovski crystals and sterling silver. It is secured with a sterling silver lobster clasp, and has a sterling silver ribbon charm. The back of the ribbon is engraved with the words “Breast Cancer”. This piece was […]
Black and khaki lampworked beads, sterling silver wire and Hill Tribe beads and charms make this a unique and classic bracelet. Lampwork beads are made by melting narrow rods of glass by hand over an open flame (usually a torch). The glass is wrapped aound a thin metal rod (a mandrel), which later becomes the […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
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.
I had been looking for an original watch for some time and decided to make something that I liked and was eye-catching. I’m a fan of chunky jewelery and used some great silver floral charms, some oval onyx beads and a couple of preserved rose buds to add some color. I constructed this watch using […]
Lately I’ve really been enjoying making rustic or organic looking jewelry and I think this bracelet turned out great! The crystal is approximately 1 1/2″ (4cm) wide by 3/4″ (2cm) deep and 1″ (2.5cm) high, and sits on top of a fused and soldered sterling and fine sliver cuff.
I wanted to make something that used both copper and silver wire and I wanted it to be feminine. This is what I came up with. One of a kind bracelet is made with sterling silver and copper. The individual pieces were shaped by hand then soldered in place and given a light brushed finish.
