This is a grouping of three bead embroidered cuff bracelets created using different types of fabric, leather, suede, glass seed beads, freshwater pearls, glass beads and semi-precious jade chips. I love bead embroidery because it feels like I’m painting with beads.
With this bracelet I used seed beads, nymo thread, vintage button, tiger eye, brass leaf and Czech glass. Start by using size 12 needle, around 4 feet of beading thread and a stop bead at the end with a 8 inch tail. Gather up 5 or 6 different size 8 and 11 seed bead colors, […]
This bracelet was made with glass seed beads and some silvertone beads as well as some iridescent glass beads. It was made with the method of stitching the beads into the DNA spiral pattern. It’s about 7.5″ long. I was inspired from a recent trip to Wyoming. I saw a lot of beautiful jewelry with […]
I started this piece by shaping a piece of 16 gauge silver plated wire into an S-shape; then I started hammering it, creating a different texture. I then used two pieces of wire by twisting them together, then wrapping them around the S-shape wire. At last I started attaching the leaf shaped charms and a […]
I wanted to make a pair of fun earrings that would go anywhere…pool or dinner party. I started with the super cute rectangular sterling silver beads and added iridescent faceted black glass beads to the top and bottom. I strung them all together with a piece of Argentine half hard sterling silver wire and attached […]
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 […]
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.

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 […]
This jewellery piece is made from a special authentic fabric that is usually used for scarves in Anatolia. Flowers are very important in this fabric and also symbolise the relationship between nature and women. The necklace and the bracelet are made from 2 layers of fabric and in between there is thin fiber. After the […]
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 […]
The inspiration for this necklace was the unique focal piece. Wanting to create a necklace that was worthy of it, I added green and white glass pearls, gold spacers and jade gemstones to round this out to a bright and eye-catching necklace. Learn how to make this necklace.
