Would you believe I spent approximately the same amount of time attaching the tiny beads as doing the actual wire wrapping? The beads are: various type of turquoise (stabilized mostly), lapis lazuli, various kinds of jasper, copper and tiger’s eye. I like how the main stone seems framed in the wire. Available on Etsy.
Remember the big box of unfinished earrings I blogged about a few days ago? Well, some of them are finished. My friend says that there’s no point in wearing small earrings because nobody can see them anyway. The ones I make are at least 7 cm long, and usually even longer. This is the first batch, and each pair is different. Available in the earrings section of my shop.
I’ve used most of the bead pairs for earrings and I’m left with lots of beads that don’t exactly qualify for earrings (same colour but different size, same size but different pattern etc), so I decided to use them for beaded bracelets and made three so far. I’m wondering if I’ll be able to use up all my stash this way. Bracelets are available in my Etsy shop.
I’m having another beading attack earrings phase. These earrings are quite simple in construction, but include handmade dichroic glass beads and unusual brass-plated elements. I tried to make each pair look slightly different. More are to come when I get more supplies. Available in my Etsy shop. And this box contains over 1kg of unfinished lampwork glass earrings, that are waiting for me to have enough energy/wire scraps to make some matching earhooks.
You really don’t want to know how much time it took to complete it. A pendant like this has to be wrapped around at least twice, so it doesn’t bend, and needs extra wire in a few spots to give it durability. I used lots of tiny glass beads to decorate it. It was fun to make, but took lots and lots of work. Available on Etsy.
