Seed Beads Scarf Necklace
I wanted to make a necklace for winter (I am in Australia), a substantial piece that can hold its own over bulky jumpers. This scarf necklace is made with 14 strands of glass seed beads, glass bugle beads and rose quartz beads, strung onto professional nylon beading thread. To keep the strands together, I made […]

Glass Pearl Bridal Jewelry Set
I recently learn how to stitch beaded beads and this set was the result of my first attempt. I created several peyote tubes in three different sizes using pearl colored seed beads (smallest for the earring – largest for the necklace. I strung them on Accuflex along with 4mm Swarovski crystals and 8mm and 4mm […]
Hematite Cabochon Necklace
A dear friend gave me some hematite cabochons. Since I love to combine materials, I started looking for different once. I combined the hematite cabs with Swarovski pearl beads, freshwater pearls, different colors Miyuki seed beads, treasure beads, silver colored rings and spacers. I finished it all with three-way silver locker clasp.
This necklace is made with a hand crafted polymer clay pendant in shades of turquoise and blue. (The focal bead is an artists designer bead and has been created in an artists studio in the U.S.A. The bead is totally unique and original, even more beautiful in real life. It’s 3.3cm x 2.5cm). The necklace […]

The necklace part is Russian Spiral, while the pendant is beaded crystals and Russian leaves. The fastening is a peyote toggle & loop. I have made this in three colours, but […]
Midnight Bloom Necklace
I love vintage style jewelry and wanted a necklace that would be perfect with a little black dress for an evening out.

Autumn Splendor Necklace
The centerpieces of this necklace are Tazwood cherry burl cabochons with subtle inlays of turquoise. They inspired me to create Autumn Splendor. I first beaded around the cabochons, and then with a netting technique and embroidery, blended two sizes of wooden round beads, six colors of seed beads in three different sizes, as well as […]
Princess Net Necklace
This piece I worked long and hard on. I used imitation pearls and black seed beads, with tigertail wire and silver headpins. I saw a necklace in this style but with different colors and it was not as sassy. I saw the necklace as a challenge for me so I decided to look at it […]
Butterfly Brown Necklace
This necklace consists of many of my handmade lampwork beads, gemstones and Japanese seed beads. My theme and colour palette were decided upon as part of a nature series, this piece being the butterfly. I have hand forged silver pieces to represent the slender butterly feelers, with my lampwork glass butterfly sculpture becoming the focal […]

Aquamarine Morning And Amethyst Night
One early spring day I was so inspired by the sky that I decided to recreate this picture. I felt like I was working on a painting… First, I made the base for the necklace, using seed and bugle beads. Then, I made two-layered and three-dimensional blossoming full flowers, also using seed beads and bugle […]
Green Man Necklace
I fell in love with this Green Man lampwork bead, from Claire-Louise Patrick of Ciel Creations and wanted to make something that would suggest the abundance of the life cycle he represents. The necklace is in freeform spiral weave using Japanese seed beads with lots of Czech pressed glass leaves with flowers and butterflies and […]
Double-strand DNA Necklace
When I saw a sample of stitching seed beads into the twisted rope called DNA, I had to try it. It’s pretty time-consuming, especially with small #11 seed beads. After many weeks of starting and stopping, this is the result. I added silver spacers, my favorite green triangular beads and a toggle clasp.
As I work with an open flame I felt it was appropriate to create a necklace celebrating my passion. In this necklace my handmade lampwork beads, gemstones, and Japanese seed beads are finger woven together with my forged sterling silver pieces suggesting the lick of the flame.
