Twin bracelets

Sometimes I set aside some beads that match together and keep them for later in case I come across more matching beads or just something that goes with them enough for me to go “wow” and feel that using those beads in a different combination wouldn’t produce something good enough. That was the case with caramel lampwork beads, with navy blue, clear or brown bumpy spots. When I gathered all my matching supplies it turned …

Autumn tones bracelets

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. Available on Etsy in my “bracelets” section.    

Back from the holidays & new stuff

I’m back from my long holidays, where I took some work with me so I wouldn’t feel entirely useless. Turns out I made over 60 pendants. I’ll try to list all of them in the next few days. Red and purple hearts are the first though, because there have been requests for them. Grab them quickly, they’ll most likely be gone until the next week. Available in the Gothic section of my shop.

Bracelets with turquoise

Most green, red, blue, brown and yellow do anyway. I’m experimenting with wire wrapping beads to use them as a focal piece. Also, trying to include some handmade hammered clasps and other elements every now and then. The bracelets are …

I was trying to go for the casual asymmetric look. Autumn colours available here. Pink and purple colours available here.  

Chunky bracelets

Remember the beads from my previous post? I decided to use them in a bracelet after all. I had some beautiful raw amber beads and various matching jasper and turquoise pieces and I like this colour combination. Available in my Etsy shop. The second one took me a major part of a day, because I had an idea, which proved to be poor, then I had to redesign the whole piece, make another wire wrapped …
