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.
I used these pretty green glass floral beads to complete this bracelet. I used copper wire for wrapping to bring out the brilliance of the green beads. I attached Swarovski crystals in 6 and 4mm size to head pins to form dangles. The clasp is made of 16 gauge copper and has been hammered. I […]
I love flowers so I am always motivated to use flowers in my jewelry pieces. For this bracelet, I wire wrapped this amazing blue Czech glass beads and linked it to a couple of frosted blue acrylic flowers, which I have wire wrapped onto an antique bronze filigree flower connector.

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 […]
Blue and green stones helped me create the name of this piece. I strung each bead section onto brass wire and did a simple loop to close each end. Each beaded wire section was attached to brass jump-rings. The focal is the brass filigree ring that I attached to the bracelet by wrapping both sides […]
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 […]
This bracelet is made using 14kt gold filled wire and lots of little glass beads left over from other projects. I twisted some curlicues, wired up some beads and hung them on the curlicues. I also made the simple hook and eye clasp from 14kt gold filled wire. This one twinkles, it is one of […]
When I was a child in New Jersey my mother went through a phase where everything in our home was electric blue and chartreuse. This bracelet really brings me back to those times! The handmade glass beads are complimented nicely by the bright sterling silver chain, bells and clasps.
This was one of the first pieces of jewellery I ever made. I had a pretty shell heart piece that I wanted to base my bracelet around and went from there. Using a variety of glass beads in amber, gold and brown shades I created a charm bracelet on antique chain. This is one of […]
This piece is made of pink AB bicone glass crystal clusters and peach coloured 10mm glass pearls. I used 28 gauge silver wire for the bicone clusters and 20 gauge silver wire to make my own eye pins to link the pearls and the clusters together. I also encased the pearls with some Bali silver […]
I strung random glass beads and Swarovski crystals onto a sterling wire which I then wrapped onto a handcrafted wire cuff to create this bracelet. It took some time, patience, creativity and lots of wire. I wanted to create something I could wear to work, weddings or casually.
I made this piece by first getting a chain, and then adding 2 beads to every link. The beads are attached to a headpin and then attached to the chain with a jumpring. I have used a mixture of glass and acrylic beads of different purples. It is finished with a lobster claw clasp. I […]
I particularly love the angel charm in the middle as she seems to be in thought or having a quiet moment. I wanted to make something that was a little fairytale-like and sweet, so I put the basket and umbrella as part of the design, making them seem like they belong to the angel. The […]
