I like combining steampunk elements, such as gears and chain, with my own flair to create something unique. This necklace measures 18 inches and combines gold plated chain, copper rounds, silver plated rounds, copper Swarovski crystals, and metal gears in shades of antiqued gold, pewter, and copper. The gears are connected with jump rings in […]
This piece was made as a commission for a colleague’s mother – the brief was that she has a young and carefree spirit and loves greens and browns. Materials include antique brass Vintaj pieces, unakite, moonstone, Czech and Indian glass and Swarovksi crystals and pearls, all combined with a gorgeous antique brass chain.
This necklace consists of blue translucent glass stones fixed in silver plated wire. I wove the wire around the stone to create a snail shape. The lace that forms the top part of the necklace is a spiral chainmaille technique using silver plated chains. The pendant was woven and the stone is caged in the […]
I made this necklace using ceramic focal beads from Earthenwood Studios. The light blues and yellows look amazing with the Vintaj brass. I made a simple chain using faceted chalcedony, and small blue ceramic rounds. I just simply strung the beads on looped wire, attaching them all together with jump-rings. I threw in a few […]
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 […]
This necklace is made using high polished silver chain and rubber coated satin red beads that I wire wrapped using silver hypo wire. I used silver jump rings to secure the beads onto the chain. I used a sivertone toggle clap as the closure for the necklace. The silver and red satin colored beads warms […]
This necklace is constructed of glass beads on individual shaped wire. Each bead is then attached to a small section of silver chain with jump rings. This length of chain is attached to a wire wrapped bead that slides onto a chain. The clasp, which is not shown, is a simple S-hook. Most of these […]
I love working with wire, so in this piece I focused mainly on giving wire a different and modern shape. To make the pendants, I used gold tone wire and combined it with a 12 mm black glass bead. I strung one on an 18 inch gold plated ball chain for the necklace, and attached […]
This necklace was made with all recycled vintage materials. I began making jewelry out of my Mom’s pieces after she passed, as gifts for family. Now I collect vintage pieces for my designs. This necklace consists of vintage glass beads with copper and brass components and chain. I love creating jewelry that’s is good for […]
For this necklace I wanted to do something in a more contemporary “boho chic” style with bright colors, so I combined an orange aventurine donut with turquoise blue Czech picasso beads and a pair of tumbled aventurine nuggets. To add to the chunky look and feel I used a heavy chain with large links. All […]
I used wire wrapping in the construction of this pendant. I started by shaping the wire in a swirl shape and then started attaching the beads to it using freshwater creme pearls and 6mm purple bicone beads. Then, I finished it by a wire wrapped purple briolette. A silver tone chain is attached.
This piece is made by stringing the larger green and brown beads on stringing wire and then threading string wire through those beads and stringing the copper colored beads on the end. Everything is held in place with crimp beads. There are three strands of wire for the necklace. The strands are braided together to […]
For this necklace I used round marshmallow turquoise beads, cultured freshwater pearls, and sterling silver chain. The beads are strung on .019 softflex and then crimped onto the chain. I used a round hammered toggle clasp which is wire wrapped to a pearl and then the chain. I love how the pearls work with the […]
This necklace is mainly made from aventurine chips and dark and light 8mm round aventurine beads strung on wire and connected with simple wire loops. I completed the necklace with fine triple copper link chain and a brass lobster claw. The triple strands overlaps naturally when worn.
This set consists of faceted smoky quartz stones that are suspended between links of 14kt gold filled flat cable chain. This set was inspired by the warm colors associated with the fall season. The necklace is secured with a 14kt gold filled lobster claw clasp, and the earrings are set on 14kt gold filled round […]
This necklace consists of golden plated beads, golden plated wire, turquoise beads, and a turquoise donut. The base is coiled around the beads and woven in a fan shape between the turquoise beads. The pendant is woven in a dorian style. I wove and coiled another turquoise bead in the lower part. The lace chain […]
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.
