Jacqueline Trerise

I started beaded as a child but as I grew older my curiosity led me to try many different art forms. Beading just got left behind. But, about six years ago as I was browsing in a magazine store wondering what I could get my hands into next, I came across a beading magazine. I was hooked. I have tried my hand at all kinds of off loom beading techniques, which I love. I also enjoy working with wire. I have been dabbling in polymer clay and PMC to create my own pendants and beads.

I must confess...I am addicted!!!

Summer Flora Earrings Project

Summer Flora Earrings

These beautiful carved mother of pearl flowers needed some color in my eyes. So I have added a chain which I have embellished with fuschia-dyed mother of pearl round beads and olivine-dyed mother of pearl drop beads which I turned upside down to represent leaves. Now I have a pair of beautiful, flirty summer inspired […]

Orbital Rings Wire Wrapped Bracelet Project

Orbital Rings Wire Wrapped Bracelet

I have wire wrapped some freshwater pearls in lime and spruce to this antiqued silver large round link chain. I have added some 4mm filigree antique silver beads as well for two reasons. One for a decorative touch and second to fill in the gap as the pearls were too small.

Leopard Skin Jasper Beaded Cabochon Project

Leopard Skin Jasper Beaded Cabochon

This cabochon is 30mm x 40mm and has beautiful earthtone colors. I used Japanese Delicas and size 15’s to peyote stitch a beaded bezel with minimum embellishments and a peyote stitched bail. The beaded rope is done in a spiral rope stitch using the same beads. I have chosen the colors of the beads to […]

Ocean Treasures Necklace Project

Ocean Treasures Necklace

Most of my inspiration comes from nature and the environment that I live in. I live on the north coast of British Columbia Canada in a small port/fishing town. When I came across the wire mesh in the teal color I instantly thought of fishing nets capturing the sealife in its path. This is my […]

Black Coral Earrings Project

Black Coral Earrings

These are dyed coral sticks. Most of my inspiration for my creations come from nature. As these have such an organic look I could not resist them. To give the sticks some elegance I have wrapped the tops with wire and made a loop with which to attach the ear wire.

Red Aventurine Necklace Project

Red Aventurine Necklace

This necklace is quite a stunning piece! It is strung with red aventurine rectangle beads, large sage green freshwater pearls and mocha Swarovski crystals. Silver daisy spacers add a nice accent. I started with the aventurine and added the pearls and crystals in colors that would give a fall themed look.

Falling Leaves Earrings Project

Falling Leaves Earrings

Fall is so full of wonderful rich colors. And as you know I love leaves! So this is my way of capturing those colors in this fall inspired pair of earrings. The leaf charms are antiqued gold color with freshwater pearls in various sizes and rich autumn colors. They dangle from a gold petite chain […]

Genuine Leaf Pendant And Earring Set Project

Genuine Leaf Pendant And Earring Set

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 […]

Wired Copper Pendant Project

Wired Copper Pendant

I discovered this large chunk of solid copper on vacation. I love the richness of color in copper. I think it looks great surrounded by silver as the two compliment each other. Of course this nugget had to be wrapped in wire as there is no hole…I don’t drill…but it was just enough to accent […]
