Bracelets are fun to make and unlike wire wrapped pendants they don’t require a lot of skill from the maker to look original and beautiful. Two of these are just beaded, with some bead charms, otherwise no frills except the beads matching and complimenting each other perfectly. The other two include wire wrapped elements – a fused glass cabochon and a bead.
The central wire wrapped pieces of these necklaces have been ready for quite a while, but I had to decide which beads to use for the rest of the necklace and had to collect enough of them. I was trying to go for the casual asymmetric look.
I’m having another earrings phase. This time I used lots of flat disc beads, rondelle beads and some flat irregular nuggets, because I think they look awesome when piled up together when all the colours match. I mostly chose natural, Autumn inspired materials and colours, but also handmade ceramic and metal disc beads. I know they’re simple and I know lots of people who would say they’re too simple to blog about them, but I really like them, and honestly – could just anyone match these colours?
Ten new pairs available in my Etsy shop.
Do you know why brown sea glass is so difficult to find, despite that brown glass bottles are so common? It’s because it’s so similar to the pebbles and it usually lies between them.
Also, the pieces that I’ve found so far have a different structure than clear and green sea glass, the brown ones are more porous.
The great thing is that brown sea glass also resembles amber in colour. That’s why I used some genuine amber beads in this pendant – the colour was so similar, and they looked so good together. The tiny freshwater pearls only emphasize the watery origin of the whole piece.
Another sea glass pendant. The idea was to make this one look like something from the sea (hence the amber-coloured beads) and a leaf at one time (hence the shape).
Autumn seems to be already here, even in my designs :(
