A batch of steampunk pendants

Here’s a batch of some new steampunk pendants – the smallest ones. Theoretically they come in pretty much any colour, but really mostly I use what I already have in my beads drawer and what’s available. I got lots of brown and purple ones this time. Available in my Etsy shop in the Steampunk section.

Industrial eye pendant

IMG_9839m

I had a problem categorizing this pendant. It’s slightly steampunkish but does not contain any watch parts, just wire, beads and a lot of chains. I settled for “industrial” in the end, as this term is somewhat wider than steampunk. It’s still in the Steampunk section of my shop, because Etsy doesn’t allow more categories than I already have. I used a tiny dichroic glass cab from For The People glued onto a brass connector as …

Agate pendants

Agate is one of my favourite minerals. The natural one is usually brown and grey, although there are more variations, but it can also be dyed in various colours, which I learned to appreciate over time, especially when the dye job looks well. The first one is one of the natural brown slices I brought over from Poland last year. I used malachite beads to compliment it. The other one is a dyed bead, and …

I’m back & new pendants

Well, my trip took longer than I had expected, for which I apologize, but now I’m back and have over 70 (!) new pendants, which I will be listing in my Etsy shop shortly. Here’s some gothic hearts for a start; they’re available in the gothic & fantasy section of my shop.

Earthy tones necklace

As usually, assembling the beaded part took me a lot more time than the wire wrapped part, because I kept stringing the beads and dismantling the whole thing all over again until for hours until it looked right. I used fused glass cab for a focal piece, coconut shell beads, lampwork beads, handmade recycled glass beads, some brass plated findings and faux suede cord. Available on Etsy.

Ocean bracelet

I had wanted to make this for a long time and had the wire wrapped part pre-made, in my drawer. I just couldn’t find the right beads. While browsing Etsy I found African glass beads recycled from old bottles. They’re beautifully  irregular and come in variety of colours and shapes. I also used some artisan lampwork beads, a patina starfish charm and silver plated “bali” beads. Available in my Etsy shop.

Wire wrapped winter bracelet

I have to admit, the wire wrapping in this one took an awful lot of time. I used three dichroic glass cabs from For The People shop (purple and ice pink/white) and lampwork beads from Dancing Frog Jewelry. Purples, lilacs and whites. Enjoy. Bracelet available in my Etsy shop.
