I love the physicality of working with wire; bending, coiling, twisting, making it do what I want it to do, and I made these earrings using 24 gauge Artistic Wire (permanently colored copper wire) in aqua and lemon hand coiled on a narrow mandrel. I made the headpin by making three tiny coils on one […]
The inspiration for this piece was a large, green, carved jade pendant. I’ve been trying for a while to use this pendant in a simple but elegant setting. Done in shades of gold, orange and bright spring green, this necklace uses chunky millefiori beads surrounded by gold-plated hoops. The smaller round green beads are glass […]
This necklace features 4 strands, each unique, but layer together beautifully. I used one of my favorite color combinations…bronze and turquoise. I made two of the strands more of a random look with seed beads, freshwater pearls, crystals, and turquoise. One strand has a regular pattern of turquoise and copper beads. The final strand holds […]
The focal beads used in this piece are ocean jasper. I absolutely love this stone and had to create something with it right away. The blues and greens go very well with the aquamarine rounds and jade chips. I’ve also incorporated various Bali bead spacers as well as hand-formed sterling silver beads. This bracelet was […]
These look fancy but are pretty simple to make for beginning beaders. You start with two metal beading hoops. Next, take thin 24 or 26 gauge copper wire-wrapping wire and loop it around the hoop tightly 10 times. Next, add a bead to the wire, and pull the wire snug back to the hoop, making […]photo credit
Orange is in this summer in New Zealand. I love orange, and I feel very fortunate to have created this piece with my own beads combined with my favourite technique which is wire work. I made the base of the bracelet with size 6 seed beads, it took me 4 hours to create this piece […]
I was thinking of a book from my childhood. It was about this little African boy and his adventures. All the girls in the pictures wore anklets made with beads and large teeth! The long green glass beads reminded me of those teeth and the bright green color evokes a bit of a jungle feel. […]
In the heat of summer, I wanted to create an oasis of cool colors. I started with a silver, green, and blue pendant which I wrapped in green 20 gauge wire with a few silver spacers. I combined some of my grandmother’s large malachite beads with aventurine rounds, lapis lazuli chips, green seed beads, silver […]
I combined peridot chips and nephrite Jade in this three strand necklace to create a piece which reminds me of the seaweed we see along our coasts. I love the way the greens work together and the contrast in textures between the peridot and the smooth jade. The strands are loosely woven in and out […]
This amazing gemstone beaded bracelet features green aventurine gemstone chips, copper glass seed beads, and a beautiful 1 3/4″ rhyolite gemstone in the center that I have surrounded in sterling silver beads. This bracelet is designed with a toggle clasp and measures 7 1/2″ in length.
This beaded necklace is made up of green garnet lentil gemstones, oval-shaped wood beads, sterling silver beads and sterling Bali spacers. I added a Karen Hill Tribe heart-shaped leaf pendant and used a sterling silver clasp and chain to allow it to be adjustable. I was inspired by the lush green trees found in the […]
This bracelet is made with three medium size Moss Agate stones with curb chain threaded on stretch magic elastic to give this link effect. This bracelet is stunning and goes with so many outfits! I love the look of these bracelets and make them using many different beads and other materials.
My inspiration for this bracelet is the beautiful leaf-cut labradorite. This piece is so classy and can be worn to dress up jeans or to a formal event! The leaf-cut labradorite stones have a lot of beautiful blue flash with black faceted Swarovski crystal spacers and faux grey pearls. Strung on beading wire, measures about […]
I love leaves! Fell in love with this pendant instantly and had to have it. It is a genuine leaf that has been set on coconut shell and coated in epoxy. I have added freshwater pearls and antique gold metal accents. I think even though the leaf is green that it is still a wonderful […]
This necklace is really easy to make. On beading wire I strung alternating emerald potato pearls with black seed beads. On each end I used a split ring and on one side is chain for adjustable length and on the other side is a hand made clasp using 20g silver wire. For the pendant I […]
This necklace is hand knotted using a shiny gold colored synthetic knotting cord and opaque pale olive green 8mm glass beads. The other beads are orange/pink 6mm glass beads. The knots used are larkshead and the square knot. The necklace has a loop and bead closure and is 16.5″ in length.
I made this antique turquoise piece using 2 sizes of round turquoise beads. You may use from 8mm for the smaller ones and 20mm for the big ones to have this effect. I use wire wrapping technique for each dangle with bronze eye pins to get that antique effect that would match the spider veins […]
I created this bracelet so that it would add playful color to any outfit. I fed acid lime gem stones onto a doubled bead wire (for strength) and ended the piece with an adjustable chain clasp for extra length as needed. I finished the chain with a beaded dangle to add detail.
This necklace is a 17 inch choker made with aventurine beads, faux green pearls, and 13 mother of pearl tear drop shaped pendants in green and white. I wanted to create a leafy look with the pendants (which hang about 1 inch long with the faux pearls at the end of them). The piece fastens […]
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 […]
