Steampunk Lace Necklace
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 […]
Earthy Charm Necklace
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.
Blue Woven Snails Necklace
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 […]
Song Bird Necklace
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 […]
Casual Salsa Necklace
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 […]
Mirror Mirror Fairest Of The All
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 […]
Green Cluster Necklace
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 […]
Sun Inspired Necklace Set
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 […]
Spring To Fall Vintage Recycled Necklace
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 […]
Turquoise And Orange Chunky Boho Donut Necklace
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 […]
Purple Swirl Wire Necklace
This piece started out as three hand-made lamp work beads. I had no idea what to do with them for over a month. One day I decided I was going to make something with them if it killed me. I had wanted to try a woven bail treatment and I thought this would be the […]
Pearls And Silver Rings Necklace
I combined small 6mm Swarovski pearls with large 10mm silver rings and medium silver chain to create this simple piece.
Swirl Pearls Pendant
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.
Copper Explosion Necklace
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 […]
Marshmallow Turquoise And Chain Necklace
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 […]
Smoky Quartz & Gold Chain Necklace Set
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 […]
Aventurine Chips And Rounds Triple Strand Necklace
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.
Dorian Necklace With Pendant
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 […]
Denim Blues Necklace
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.
Matte Gold Necklace
This necklace is a nice combination of gold and brown. I started with a big link gold chain, then I attached a unique big toggle clasp in the same color. To finish I used small link chain to dangle three brown Murano style lampwork glass beads from the clasp.
