I started this crocheted necklace by picking out one of my favorite colors of C-Lon cord–I love the gold color. Then I chose some small gold and white seed beads, small freshwater pearls and clear sparkly crystals, both Swarovski and Czech. I threaded them all onto the cord randomly making sure I mixed up the […]
For this piece I crocheted 28 gauge non-tarnish silver Artistic Wire with keshi pearls around the edges. I love the challenge of turning a hard material such as wire into soft and feminine pieces, as it is so unexpected. When I see people put them on and be amazed at how soft and touchable they […]
This fun beaded bracelet was created with 4mm sparkly brown and, just a touch of, hot pink crystal fire polished beads. Its “wrapped” effect was created by threading the beads with 10 meters of size 2 cotton cord onto soft 1.5mm brown leather cord. I made the catch for the clasp by knotting the ends […]
The main materials used in this unique bracelet is 8 mm turquoise magnesite stones and bronze leather cord. I started by using the leather cord, making two strands, then I started weaving the stones between the two strand cord so that the bracelet will be wrapped three times around the wrist. Finally, I attached a […]
Inspired by my love of knitting as well as my love for beading, I decided to try making a hand knitted bracelet reminiscent of the peyote stitch or loom seed bead bracelet bands. I wanted to make a reversible pattern so that the bracelet could be worn on both sides. I started this “Two in […]
This unique pendant was handmade with silver that is hand cast into two different long strands. The bottom one is longer and has a smooth finish and is made into a double branch. The top one is textured and oxidized. Between each of these on the left side is a beautiful rectangular lapis lazuli gemstone. […]
Whilst on holiday this year I found a shop which sold a lot of wrap bracelets. I thought they were lovely but quite expensive so decided to attempt to make one when I got home. To make the bracelet I have used 4mm gold glass beads, brown leather cord, 1 button and fireline to thread […]
I love these autumn colours of aubergine, rust, grey and French navy, and I made these felted beads in varying sizes using 18.5 micron Superfine Merino wool. I firstly strung on 12 beads of assorted colour and size between the velour ends. I make the hanging beads by threading two beads of different colour and […]
This black Goodies hair tie was very plain and needed a little more style. I wrapped a portion of the hair tie with beautiful pastel blue glass beads, white Japanese seeded beads, and to add a little colour I put antique coloured plated metal bead caps around the glass beads. It turned out more vintage […]
First, I made these round beads from off cuts glass. Due to unknown C.O.E. of the glass I couldn’t mix any other colors on the beads hence I made the disc beads to add interest to my piece. I strung some citrine chips on small waxed linen thread in different length with small knots on […]
This beaded necklace is one of my first creations. Passion for old things compelled me to unpick my grandmothers necklace and string my own. It is made from old plastic beads and crocheted ones. Two different length necklaces combined into one to make an impression that nothing else is needed. It perfectly fills the neckline.
I designed and hand-sewed this beautiful, romantic bib necklace with pearls and silk fabric. I embellished the necklace with pink freshwater pearls and added a Swarovski crystal and copper brooch. I used a satin ribbon for closure, so the length is adjustable.
I took the softest black suede cord, approx. 72 inches and after each knot I would string a freshwater pearl that was hand-wrapped with fine silver. I would repeat this pattern randomly to the end of the cord. Then I would double wrap and sometimes triple wrap making it a multi-stranded necklace. I finished it […]
This is the first time I’ve worked with sterling silver. I designed a pendant, and while I was working, more ideas came to mind. I had no idea that you needed so many different techniques and materials in working with silver, but I loved it. The stone inside is a blue Goldstone, lovely. It looks […]
I created a hot pink organza ribbon flower and attached it to the center of the necklace. I then strung together hot pink, cool pink and black faceted beads to create colorful strands of dangling drops. I added three cool pink pearls at the top of the strands for contrast of color. I used silver […]
A large leather rose in a dusky pink is the focal point for this necklace. I have attached it to sit asymmetrically and hand wired a trail of smooth coffee coloured beads which swoop around the bottom of the necklace. The piece is secured by a black satin ribbon which ties around the neck.
These lampwork beads were the first in my series of two-two beads featuring an opaque half and a transparent half of the same color. I have made these glass beads from moretti/effetre glass with a trail of fine silver melted through the middle. Swarovski crystals and sterling silver accents finish off the pendant.
