Took me several days to complete, because I had to take a break every now and then to make something else – this was somewhat tiring. It’s one of a kind. It even has teeth! :)
Some pendants I’ve made recently.
One of my usual steampunk pendants. I have abandoned them a bit recently, although they are quite popular and I like making them. I must get back to making them more regularly. Available here.
A heart pendant but different than what I usually make. It’s based on a round bead. I’m not sure how that happened, I guess I’m so much used to making heart shaped things, that my hands went on auto pilot here… Available here.
I buy a lot of handmade glass, and this time I bought “seconds”, which means some of the cabs had melted together or were chipped or had some other “flaws”. This cab had a tiny red cab melted into it (as seen on the photo), which I loved immediately and decided to use as an advantage and a creative opportunity, as I had beads of the same colour and even the same kind of shiny finish. Unfortunately I ended up covering most of the original red part so that the wire wrapping was sturdy enough to hold everything together. You can still see enough of it to appreciate the idea.
One is a teardrop side-drilled bead and the other is a smooth chunk with no drilling. I used smaller beads (garnet, onyx, hematite and others) to decorate. These are mostly freeform, I can’t say what exactly inspired me, I just went on with the wrapping until I was out of wire.
My most popular items are red hearts with black wire, for some reason, so I try to keep some of them in my shop all the time. This is the first 2013 batch. There’s still plenty of time to order before the Valentine’s day.
Available in my Etsy shop.
